Known as the hub of the American Navy, Norfolk comprises the metropolitan areas of Hampton Roads, Chesapeake, Newport News, and Virginia Beach as well. With such proximity to the beach, industrial areas, and Washington DC, this area has seen a relative population explosion in recent years due to it becoming significantly safer.

In The Sky Norfolk
A bit mysterious but located on the top floor of a high rise downtown, this venue caters to smaller weddings. You can rent all three of their spaces but will need less than 150 guests in order to accommodate them all. Add ons can include a caricature artist, balloon artist, private chef, photographer, and private musicians. The panoramic views are stunning of the surrounding area. Prices are hard to determine but it seems to be a more affordable option than the others on this list.
