"Western-Cowboy Birthday Celebration"

PRAISE GOD! My husband's "70th Christmas Western-Cowboy Birthday Celebration" (western-cowboy activities, card party and dancing) was totally "Amazing!" God made it all possible by Blessing my daughter and I to meet and work with Sharon and Noel at the Royal Courtyard, Virginia Beach, VA. They were/are professional and personable with a warm and caring staff. The venue was/is elegant, immaculate and comfortable with an inviting atmosphere. The decorations were simply gorgeous to fit the theme and the food was great. The area for the DJ was appropriate, the TV screens to show the PowerPoint were noteworthy and the overhead music fit the theme. I was pleased with everything and my husband and family were so happy. All (family and friends) were elated with the event (something totally different for all), impressed and had a super-wonderful time. Thank you, Sharon and Noel. May God continue to Bless and Prosper you as you Bless others by sharing your talents and gifts to make others happy and remember wonderful memories. Blessings & Smiles . . . Dr. Faye 🙂

Sharon and Noel created a perfect venue for my daughter's wedding reception on 11/11/2023. The venue was absolutely stunning. The creativity, attention to every detail made my daughter and her husband feel like royalty. Everyone attending the reception were in amazement of this hidden gem in Virginia Beach! The center pieces were flawless, the meals served were cooked to perfection and taste out of this world! Sharon went above and beyond to make sure every thing would be perfect and she brought our vision to life. Sharon and Noel, thank you for making this reception the memory of a life time for my entire family. I wish you all the best and much success! Sincerely, Eli & Dee Alexander (Alice & Toby)

Gorgeous Venue and GREAT Service!

My daughter was married in this venue and it was beautiful! We were able to use the entire venue during our event as it was closed to the public allowing our guest to enjoy themselves, their separate Bride and Groom suites were beautiful and elegant. From the beginning Sharon was informative and helpful. The gazebo for an outdoor wedding was a beautiful focal point. They offered a contingency plan in the event the wedding would have to be moved indoors due to weather, one last thing for us to stress about. All of the vendors coordinated with Sharon, she has linens of every color imaginable, decorated the reception area and has various options for center pieces, her center pieces were beautiful. Their wedding package was well worth the price and the food was delicious. My daughter and her fiancé were excited when they saw they offered Hispanic food. They were able to included Hispanic food in their options. The in house catering took care of everything and once again, one less thing for us to stress over. The chef took notes during the tasting and was attentive to what my daughter and her fiancé wanted. During the ceremony, Sharon and Noel went above and beyond to make sure the day went smoothly. When we arrived, everything was decorated, the easels put up with our poster boards, and favors on everyone's plates. Sharon set up finger food in the VIP room for the wedding party before pictures while our guest enjoyed hors d'oeuvres and drinks in a separate room giving the wedding party a time to breath. We were concerned with rain on the day of the wedding, we waited before making a decision to bring it inside. The rain stopped and Noel went outside with a shop vac to clean up any puddles in the walk way for my daughter to be able to walk down the aisle and have her outdoor wedding she wanted. I'm sure there is more that I am forgetting but what I did not forget was how great Sharon and Noel were and how my daughter's face lit up when we first walked into the venue. After looking at various venues, they could not have chosen a better one, every time we visited I found more and more things I loved about it.

The Food Was Excellent!!!

A beautiful setting for our daughter's baby shower. Sharon and Noel have created a very welcoming and richly decorated space to host our guests. The atmosphere is light and airy and there are spaces to host large and small gatherings. Their staff were superb in professionally attending to our guest and the food was excellent. We would recommend anyone seeking a beautiful indoor setting for any occasion to seriously consider The Royal Courtyard. We are exceptionally thankful to have such a wonderful venue where we were able to share exciting news about our soon-to-be-born granddaughter and to celebrate this event with so many friends and family. Thank you to Sharon and Noel. The Walkers

I had my wedding on June 25th, and when I say it exceeded my expectations, I am still in awe of how beautiful everything turned out. Sharon and Noel were so helpful throughout the whole process, I am so thankful for them. The price is very reasonable and they worked with us on everything. All of my guests are still talking about how beautiful everything was, how good the food was, and how friendly the staff was. They even had wine and water in the bridal sweet and beer and water in the groom's sweet. I will definitely be having any future parties at the Royal Courtyard. Thanks again, Sharon and Noel.

"Perfect place to have a wedding!

My husband and I just got married at Royal Courtyard on October 10, 2020. Everything was absolutely beautiful. The owners Noel and Sharon are so nice and they made sure our wedding day went off without a hitch and on schedule. What I love the most is you have the entire building to yourself so u you don’t have to share space with other events happening at the same time. The ceremony room and ballroom was decorated beautifully. The ballroom is huge with a large dance floor and with a full bar at the back of the room. The servers at the venue were extremely nice and accommodating and always made sure the guest and wedding party had everything we needed and the food was actually really good. The ballroom also has the draped ceiling which always give it that elegant touch for a wedding. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a place to have their wedding. You will not be sorry so check it out.

Wonderful Time, Considering.....

I am sure that I have had one of the biggest wedding since Covid-19 (around 180 ppl). The Royal Courtyard took all the safety measures to make sure our guest were safe. They required everyone to wear masks the entire time, except for when we were eating and drinking. Overall, we had a great time. The decor was perfect and that food was great!
