The Historic deWitt Cottage opened its doors to reality television on Saturday, August 20, 2019. Producers from Sharp Entertainment in conjunction with Virginia Beach Weddings by Primo Events filmed the season finale of a reality TV show inside and in the gardens of the Cottage. Reality shows are known for drama and thankfully ours was minimal except for missing wedding bands. They were quickly found and the ceremony and reception continued as planned.
Our bride was the first to enjoy our new “Bridal dressing room” designed in the style and time of the deWitt sisters. The episode will air this fall.
This was a huge opportunity for the Cottage and Museum to gain visibility as a preferred venue for the television and film industry.
A huge thank you to Museum and Shore Gallery Gift Shop staff, our Custodian, Thomas, and our Garden volunteers. In addition, I would like to thank Ron and Shawn Form of Primo Events for providing this opportunity to us. (Due to confidentiality, we cannot reveal the show until the week it broadcasts.)
