My daughter's wedding was located at the Cavalier on the hill in the ballroom. Diana was great and easy to work with. If we ever had a problem she was there to help us thru it. The Cavalier is loaded with history and that makes for a great time.

The Cavalier On the Hill was a tremendous and wonderful place to get married and have a reception. We were very pleasantly surprised to find that we could afford to have the wedding there, thinking initially that it would be out of our price range. But we found one of the rooms, the Pocahontas Room, to work very well for that. We had several visits to the venue and a menu tasting, and Diana Pollock, the event/catering manager was especially accommodating and very friendly and customer oriented. There were numerous changes up to the wedding, menu choices, number of actual meals, etc, and the venue and Diana made it very easy to get everything done. We did have a wedding coordinator, CMT event planning, that was very familiar with working with Diana and the Cavalier so that helped a lot. The food was excellent, wonderfully plated and tasted fantastic - everyone was pleased with their meals. There are some restrictions at the Cavalier for small things like no bubbles at the reception, etc, for obvious reasons and we managed to work with all of their idiosyncrasies - not too painful. Bottomline, it was beautiful, and the venue made it all happen as they said they would. It was a great experience and I can't wait to see the photos to see how the place looked that day!

My husband and I had our reception at the Cavalier Oceanfront in Orion's Roof. We had an absolutely exceptional experience with Diana, the coordinator at the Cavalier, and all of her staff. Diana was available at all times to answer questions, soothe nerves, and to help make our day the best day ever. We met with her formally twice, and we talked to her about once or twice a week as the wedding grew closer - intense, I know, especially since she had my father, mother, and I calling at all different times. Diana worked with our price points, and she didn't make us feel crazy for being on a budget or not wanting to spend over a certain amount of money. Diana was graceful, poised, and relaxed - and she helped my family and I relax and truly enjoy the time as well.

Orion's Roof, on the top floor of the Cavalier Oceanfront, is amazing. The view from Orion's Roof is phenomenal - I cried the first three times I visited it. Three sides of the room are floor to ceiling windows. It was a lovely, lovely setting for our beach themed wedding. The food was incredible the night of the reception. Diana saved plates of food for my husband and me to eat later - which we did, and we were so grateful. The staff was incredibly accommodating, and they were super friendly, even bringing us drinks and a plate of appetizers from the cocktail hour when we first got there. Another bonus was that Diana's staff lit all of the candles in our centerpieces so we didn't have to worry about assigning someone to that task.

Our guests were able to book rooms at great rates in order to stay for the weekend. Ryan, the front desk/reservations manager, was accommodating and friendly. The room my husband and I stayed in was lovely, and we had a beautiful view of the sunrise the morning after the wedding.

Without a doubt, you absolutely MUST book your reception at the Cavalier Oceanfront. You will not be disappointed.

It's a month after the wedding and we are still marveling at how perfect everything was! We love, love, love the Cavalier and the wonderful staff there!

We could not have asked for a more wonderful location! Every detail in every space evoked exactly the mood we were looking for--elegance, romance, history and an experience that would be out of the ordinary. It was so great to have the wedding and the reception in one location and everything really flowed from one space to the next as we moved from the wedding on the porch to cocktail hour in the Raleigh Room and finally to the reception in the Pocahontas Room. It was just so beautiful. I was surprised at the number of local guests who had never been to the Cavalier before. Why, why, why are you not the number one wedding venue in Virginia Beach?? I think you should be!

Your staff was so wonderful to work with. They worked hard to accommodate every request. As the number of people attending the wedding grew and grew as the date approached, Diana made the necessary adjustments to make sure everyone would have a table to sit at! Diana spent numerous hours with us as we walked around the various spaces and got a real feel for the place. She also uncomplainingly spent more than three hours with us during the bridal shoot just prior to the wedding, which was certainly above and beyond what we were expecting. Tino, you provided one of the key elements of the wedding when you set me up with Julie Morgan from As You Wish Weddings and Events. She was an absolute dream to work with and it really helped that she was so familiar with the location.

The food provided by your catering staff was delicious and beautiful to look at. The displays during cocktail hour in the Raleigh Room were truly impressive and the staff seamlessly kept everything refilled, used plates and glasses cleared and just generally made sure that everyone had plenty to eat and drink. During dinner, the staff moved quickly to get everything to the tables piping hot and managed to be both unobtrusive and on-the-spot when refills were needed. Special kudos to the gentleman who ran the chocolate fountain and was so kind to the younger guests at the wedding. They thought it was a truly magical event!

I really can't say enough good things about our event at the Cavalier! Thank you so much for making all of our dreams a reality.

I could not have imagined a more perfect wedding! (Well, ok, there were a few snafus. ; ) ) The Cavalier was absolutely beautiful the night of my wedding! We rented the Raleigh room for the cocktail hour, and with the breeze blowing in and my brother-in-law playing on the piano, it was so nice. The ballroom looked fabulous. I highly suggest hiring a lighting company (I used Blue Steel Lighting, and they were great!) to do pinspotting on each of the tables, the cake, and the candy bar if you have one. I think the special lighting really enhanced the charming, elegant ambience. With the pinspotting an the Cavalier's gorgeous chandelier, the ballroom looked amazing. Many of my guests said that it was the best, most beautiful wedding they have ever been to!

I had the best wedding at The Cavalier Hotel! My ceremony was on the lawn above the "Cavalier" on the grass---we used the tree as our backdrop. My reception was in Orions on the 11th floor. The view was incredible---there was a storm coming in and we watched lightning dance on the water...magical. Diana and her staff did an amazing job and the food was wonderful. I highly recommend this venue to anyone who wants an unforgettable wedding! Thank you, thank you, Cavalier!
