I am thrilled to feature another one of the Yorktown, Virginia wedding venues on my blog! A few months ago I had the honor of touring The Watermen’s Museum, a small museum that explains the role of Chesapeake Bay watermen from pre-colonial to modern times in our history. Nestled in next to the York River and just northwest of the Coleman Bridge stands this charming and rustic location for weddings. This venue offers many options for couples depending on the size of your guest list and your specific needs.
If you love the idea of having water views with the sound of the water lapping the shore, these options could work for you. The Watermen’s Museum owns a large stretch of private beachfront along the York River that you can use for your ceremony. The colorful sunset view there is absolutely breathtaking. You can also opt to have your ceremony on the pergola covered balcony at the Carriage House, which also overlooks the lovely York River. The Carriage House may be used for smaller gatherings of about 50 people indoors.
While some couples love having the view of the York River during their ceremony or reception, others may desire to have their ceremony on the greenspace in front of the Windmill. Additionally, you may choose to use the 30’ x 50’ event tent on site next to the Carriage House for your ceremony and/or reception. For more information about The Watermen’s Museum, click here.
