As we get ready to celebrate Mother’s Day at Lesner Inn with our annual brunch, we began to think of how special the holiday truly is. Mother’s Day is the perfect time to reflect on just how important and influential the role is that these women play in our lives. The holiday is the perfect opportunity to spend time with your Mother, and focus on the memorable moments you have spent together.
Your Wedding is one of the biggest moments in your life, and in your Mother’s as well. As the holiday approaches, we have thought about some special ways to incorporate your Mother in your Wedding Ceremony or Reception.
- Shopping for your wedding gown together is a day that you both will remember forever. Your mom knows you the best, and her opinion will never steer your wrong!
- Plan a way to reach out with gratitude to your Mother during your event. You can make a special mention to your Mother in your ceremony program, or find a time during the reception to personally thank her in front of your guests.
- Work together with your DJ or Band to play a song special to you and your Mother, and invite other Mother’s and children to come up and join the party!
- Incorporate touches of your childhood, or Mom’s favorite items throughout the wedding. Honor your Mom by serving one of her favorite desserts, or give your guests favors that are meaningful to you and your family.
- A popular trend for ceremonies, has been carrying a bouquet down the aisle that has been created to be split into two. During the ceremony, the Bride and the Groom can each give one half to their Mothers as a special thank you.
Honoring your Mother on your Wedding Day is another way to say thank you for today, and for everyday.
Come celebrate the Holiday with Lesner Inn for our Annual Mother’s Day Brunch on May 12th! We are currently accepting reservations, and will be seating on our Waterside Deck overlooking the beautiful Lynnhaven River. We look forward to seeing you there!

Here at Lesner Inn, we are lucky to have already hosted some fabulous and exciting Virginia Beach weddings since 2013 has begun. As we gear up to jump head on into the Spring Season, we wanted to highlight some of the popular trends we have seen in our events so far, and what we expect to see a lot more of this year!
• Aqua, and Neutral Color Schemes
• Floating Candles
• Simplistic Centerpieces
• Rustic and DIY accents
• Cocktail Style Floor Plans
• Minimal Décor
With the presence of Pinterest so strong in the bridal world, last season brought lots of details and unique touches to many of the events we saw at Lesner Inn. Pops of Bright color, and personalized accents were in high demand. Of course, weddings on the water will always be the number one trend in our eyes. We continue to see many of our upcoming brides focus on a beach and nautical themed event.
Choosing a theme, trend, or color palette to incorporate in your event, is a great show of your personality and style. We can’t wait to see how our upcoming Brides and Grooms use these touches to personalize their special day at Lesner Inn!

On January 13th, Lesner Inn took part in the annual Uniquely Yours Bridal Showcase. We were honored to once again be a part of this great event, which brings in hundreds of brides from all over Hampton Roads. In contrast to our booth last year, which centered around a vineyard theme including specialty items, this year, Lesner Inn stuck to its namesake of “Casual Elegance on the Water.”
We chose to incorporate all in house items including, linens, a rental centerpiece we offer, and all decorative accents available to brides who host their event at our venue. The look of our booth highlighted the beach and nautical theme that many of our clients love to incorporate in their events, based on our picturesque location.
Enjoy these photos of our booth from the Bridal Show, and be sure to ask about our in house rental items when planning your next event at Lesner Inn!

On Tuesday, May 1st, Lesner Inn co-hosted this months 757 Wedding Professionals Vendor Blender. The night was a great success, and a perfect experience to network with tons of other local Wedding Professionals in the area. There was great music, delicious food, and even a signature pink mimosa drink! The Lesner Inn staff set-up mock tables in each room to show the specialty and in house centerpiece and linen options, and were able to tour any guests that were interested in viewing our different spaces. The perfect evening weather only highlighted the fun and festive event, and it was a pleasure to meet the vendors who came out in support. We hope everyone who attended had as great a time as we did, and we look forward to working with you all in the upcoming future!!
Enjoy these photos from the fun event!

When beginning to plan their special day, Brides often begin with envisioning their themes and colors for their perfect event. A unique and effective accent to any reception is ordering a specialty linen to highlight your floral centerpieces, or pull in shades of color from your bridesmaids dresses. At Lesner Inn, we work with a select group of linen distributors that offer a variety of fabric choices and colors to enhance your overall event look. Many Brides opt to use specialty linens on all of their guest rounds, while others will use a pop of color, or a shimmery fabric to highlight their Sweetheart or Cake Table. Some of the most popular specialty linens include, polyester solids (which are affordable and available in a wide variety of colors), iridescent crush fabrics, pintuck linen, and fabrics with a matte satin finish. Each different linen offers its own unique touch, and always leaves a lasting impression with your guests!
Check out how this weekend’s Lesner Brides used Specialty Linen to enhance their Special days!
