Celebrating years of timeless tradition, the Tides Inn invites you to make its legacy uniquely yours by embarking on your happily ever after at this intimate destination wedding site. Featuring new waterfront venues, including a beach and wedding bluff.

Located along peaceful Carter’s Creek, a tributary to the Rappahannock River, opening out onto the Chesapeake Bay, the Tides Inn as your wedding site will not only create a most memorable day, but a getaway your guests will not soon forget. You and your guests can take advantage of a wide array of bespoke experiences, such as pampering your bridal party with spa treatments, creating a wildflower bridal bouquet in the Maker Space, concocting your own signature cocktail with our mixologist, joining an oyster excursion with the resort ecologist and much more. Whatever your interest, the Tides Inn will captivate your guests in true Southern hospitality. 

Not to be overlooked is the coastal cuisine the Tides culinary team delivers at special events – from Chesapeake Bay Blue Crab cakes to the fresh catch of the day. A classic oyster roast on the beach at sunset accompanied by a local Virginia bourbon bar is just one of the many reception options we can tailor for you. 

Luxurious accommodations with waterfront views await you and your guests. The resort features a variety of bridal suite options, including the Stephens Suite, named after the original owners – with its spacious living and dining rooms. Your family members or VIP guests may enjoy our new Ashburn Suites, which range from 700-800 square feet and feature living areas with sleeper sofas and modern, spa-like bathrooms with deep soaking tubs and dramatic water vistas. 

If you’re looking for a serene wedding destination with small town, coastal charm, the Tides Inn could be the place where your story begins. Please call our Wedding Specialist at (804) 438-4416 to discuss what the Tides Inn can create for you.
