by Kelsey Thomas | Jan 13, 2023

On January 28, 2023, the staff of Coastal Virginia Magazine and Coastal Virginia Weddings welcomed hundreds of brides, grooms, friends and family into the Founders Inn and Spa for the Coastal Virginia Weddings Showcase. Guests were able to connect with the finest wedding industry professionals – offering a range of services from venues and caterers to photographers, lighting, décor and more – and had the opportunity to win some incredible giveaways throughout the day.

The event concluded with an upbeat fashion show of trending bridal gowns, featuring styles from Ellaz Bridal, Leora Bridal and Milk & Honey Bride with all hair and makeup by Unveiled Beauty Lounge.

Colonial DJs’ Jeff Bristow facilitated and announced our giveaways alongside Event Coordinator Hayley Thomas, including our 2 grand prize honeymoon giveaways and scavenger hunt courtesy of Colonial DJs. Coastal Virginia Weddings editor Leona Baker also awarded the Best Vendor Display Award to Kreatively Chic Events.


Thank you to the Founders Inn and Spa for allowing Coastal Virginia Weddings to host our event in their beautiful space. Special thank you to our sponsors and partners – Premier Events, Stage Right Lighting and Colonial DJs – for making the 2023 Coastal Virginia Weddings Showcase our best one yet! Also thank you to all of our participating vendors and event attendees, and congratulations to all of our lucky giveaway winners!
