Grand Affairs is a full-service catering company founded in 1980 by Mr. Gordon Christie, a native of Hampton Roads, who received his degree from New York’s prestigious Culinary Institute of America, in Hyde Park New York.

Realizing the tremendous need in this area for a venue specifically for special events, Mr. Christie opened the "Grand Affairs" event location in 1986. This centrally located venue was the first of its type in the State of Virginia boasting over 26,000 square feet of ballroom space and a wedding chapel for 170 guests.

In May 2018, the upper managment team of General Manager, Brian Harvey and Director of Operations, Whitney Vines became the owners and have vowed to continue the legacy of Grand Affairs. Both have over 30 years of experience in the Hospitality industry.

Our Culinary Team is lead by Executive Chef, Michael Woodhouse. His impressive credentials include being our Sous Chef for the past three years and previously working in the area’s best restaurants .

We invite you to come taste the difference and tour our beautiful ballrooms. We know you’ll be impressed by our cuisine and our attention to detail.
