FROM THE KNOT EDITORS
The First Look
Country Villa Inn Weddings is a bed and breakfast and special events venue located in Virginia Beach, Virginia. It offers a quaint, elegant ambience and it is situated on a four-acre property with lush lawns and mature shade trees. The size of the property makes this place feel peaceful and isolated, despite the fact that it is just a few minutes away from the center of town and the beach. There are covered and open air outdoor spaces available to accommodate small to medium sized wedding parties for ceremonies and receptions.
The Ceremony Site. The ceremony site is located on the back two acres of the property, well away from any roads or traffic noise. It is in a large open field with green grass and it includes a white wedding alter. Couples can frame themselves beneath this alter as they exchange vows, with a copse of dense trees as the backdrop. This space is large enough for up to 150 guests seated in a traditional ceremony format with an aisle down the middle of two groups of guests.

Gorgeous Venue!Reviewed on 10/14/2014 Heidi V
I had the opportunity to photograph a wedding here this past weekend. It is a gorgeous venue! The owners are welcoming and accommodating and ensured that everyone in the wedding party and all of the vendors had exactly what they needed to make the day beautiful and successful!
Country Villa was the PERFECT location for our early October wedding, we could not have asked for a better venue! Petie, Phil, and Cassie are awesome and made us feel so welcome and relaxed, we never had to worry about anything related to the venue the entire weekend and leading up to the wedding. We loved that we could have both our ceremony and reception at one location, especially with 150 guests (extremely rare find in the Virginia Beach area)! The natural backdrop of the trees and flowers made for a beautiful setting that is stunning in pictures. Another thing we loved was the fact that we didn't have to rent tables and chairs from an outside source because it was included in the venue cost! Cassie is a wonderful event coordinator and made me feel at ease through the entire planning process, she was awesome with communicating everything we needed to know. I stayed at the B&B the night before the wedding and I was treated like family, and the breakfast the morning of the wedding was so delicious! Everyone joked that they had never seen a bride eat so much the morning of her wedding, but I couldn't pass up such a delicious breakfast! It was great being able to have our rehearsal there the night before and to wake up at the venue and not worry about being late to my own wedding. We wish we could give more than 5 stars, Country Villa allowed us to have a perfect and beautiful wedding! We will definitely stay for a weekend at the B&B in the future!!!
Absolutely loved it. Petie and Phil are the best hosts you could ever have. My husband and I were married at their home one evening in September of 2014. We loved it so much we returned for our 9 month anniversary. The back part of their property is so spacious and beautiful. We had a small wedding, just about 30 attendees, but so many more could have comfortably fit. The alter location was in just the right place for guest access, a nice long bridal march, and easy access to the reception area. It is also close enough to town that all of our vendors (in va beach and chesapeake ) delivered at no extra charge. On our return trip last weekend Petie greeted us at the door for our retreat. She had the Emily room all ready to go for us, including a bottle of wine. :) she made us feel right at home. She even showed us improvements they had made ovet the past year. In the morning breakfast was served by the pool! The food was made to order and every bite delicious. Petie and Phil thank you. We can't wait to see you again soon.
We are so grateful we found Country Villa. Petie and Phil were great and there to help us every step of the way. They were so kind to our 2 little girls at every visit and even found time to entertain them while we were crazy getting ready on the big day (Thank you Phil!!). The venue is absolutely beautiful and exactly what I pictured. It is manicured to perfection. Family and friends are still talking about how beautiful it was. You would never know all that is tucked behind that little yellow building. Our day was just perfect. Thank you Petie and Phil!!!
We just celebrated the union of a beautiful couple at this beautiful B&B. The staff and Petie are wonderful and helpful. It's a perfect place to celebrate with friends and family with lots of room to spread out and interesting little photo spots. Beautiful room for the couple to celebratr their first night together.
I was so excited to find this venue because it was absolutely beautiful and had so many photo opportunities. Unfortunately, we were not able to have our wedding at the venue because Hurricane Matthew hit and the roads were impassable. Petie was absolutely wonderful, she was trying her best to accommodate so that our wedding could go on as planned, but mother nature said no and a few more trees fell preventing access on the already flooded road. We plan to come back next year on our anniversary to get those photos done and hopefully stay the night!!
I couldn't ask for a better venue! Petie and Cassie and Phil are amazing and so helpful! Truly so happy we chose to get married here! Petie always made sure we had everything and more than we needed! I already can't wait to just go visit them just because! Thank you again Petie you're the best!
Country Villa is a beautiful place to have your ceremony and reception! Petie and Cassie are always there to answer any questions and help you with anything you need along the way. I'm so happy I chose Country Villa!
Styled Shoot VenueReviewed on 10/12/2014 Just Dandy E
Country Villa Inn was the venue for a styled shoot I coordinated with Elizabeth Henson Photos. Petie & Cassie were so incredibly helpful and gracious throughout the entire planning process and the day of. Not only are Petie & Cassie wonderful, but the venue is absolutely stunning! There's so much space and it's gorgeous! An incredible outdoor venue for any event! It was the perfect location for our shoot and I'm just hoping to coordinate a real wedding there soon!
Best Wedding Venue in Virginia BechReviewed on 10/04/2014 Kim W
If you are looking for a place to get married in Virginia Beach, this is the place!!! The Country Villa Inn is romantic and beautiful. We would not have had our wedding any other place in the world! This was a destination wedding for us, and Petie and Phil were wonderful. They were able to help us get everything we wanted, or needed, to make our day perfect. Our ceremony was held at the Altar located on the spacious yet very private grounds. The trees, sun, and the landscaping made for great pictures. There is a grand pavilion that can fit many people if that’s the type of wedding you are choosing. We decided on small. Our day also included Cake, Champagne, Flowers, Photographer and Limo. Everything I could have possibly wanted! The cake was delicately decorated the flowers fresh, full and beautiful. The photographer was so much fun! I laugh every time I think of him. After pictures around the lovely villa, we drove just a few minutes to Sandbridge Beach for more pictures! Dinner was quiet and romantic and of course delicious. It truly was a fairytale wedding day! There is nothing that we would have changed or nothing else we could have asked for! We are from Pittsburgh and could not have managed any of this without Petie and Phil! Again, we cannot thank you enough! Mr. & Mrs. Michael Weisbrod Pittsburgh, PA
