Local Love: Half Moone




The Local Love section of the Bride Blog will feature different venues and creative locations around Hampton Roads that would be perfect for hosting the wedding of your dreams. 

This place may be fit for a king (or at least for a recent luncheon attended by His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh), but its spectacular views and elegant feel make it a venue worth highlighting for a Hampton Roads wedding. 

Half Moone Cruise and Celebration Center

The Half Moone Cruise and Celebration Center, adjacent to Nauticus and the Battleship Wisconsin, offers five different spaces to make your special day unforgettable.  

Enjoy an intimate seated dinner in the Bermuda Room or an affair to remember in the Half Moone Vista room. Your out-of-town guests will quickly swoon at the breathtaking views from the Grand Rotunda and your family and friends will happily dance the night away under the stars on the Promenade Deck. 

The Half Moone staff is happy to help you with all the details, from recommending a catering company to advising on table linens, but here are some things we think you should know about this space.
