We were married in the Herring Bay Bridal Garden and had our reception in the Herrington Yacht Club on a beautiful September day.

Beth and Krista were there to help us plan the entire event. On the day of the wedding the grounds were immaculate and everything was perfect. Then we had a major hiccup; the DJ we hired from Davis Deejay, not associated with Herrington on the Bay, was the worst DJ anyone at our wedding had ever experienced. Krista and Lauren from Herrington stepped up and saved our wedding ceremony and reception. Krista and Lauren fixed the DJs mistakes and kept us calm and focused on enjoying our day. The bridal garden, flowers, centerpieces, and food were all perfect but Krista and Lauren are the reason we had a perfect wedding and they are why we would highly recommend Herrington on the Bay.

We had our ceremony and Reception at the Herrington on the Bay.
From start to finish Brittany, Ethan and Krissy were amazing. I have never been to a wedding, and they walked us though step by step. Made sure we were on schedule. Everything came out exactly as we discussed and we truly did not have to worry about a thing. Even on the day off there were ushers positioning us and letting us know what to do when. Perfect!
If you want a beautiful location and worry free wedding- this is the place. Could not be happier. All the guests mentioned that they could not think of a more beautiful place to get married and the food/drinks were outstanding.

Absolutely LOVE this venue! The backdrop from the ceremony was gorgeous and the reception tent was beyond beautiful. The team at Herrington on the Bay did an excellent job providing us with an amazing wedding. It was truly more than we ever imagined for our wedding day. The service was great! We received compliments throughout the entire night about the food and venue. Being in the industry we had very high expectations and Herrington nailed it! We worked directly with Michael and Lexy. BOTH phenomenal and there every step of the way. Lexy stayed from beginning to end of the event always checking in with us to ensure we didn't need anything. Well done :)

My husband and I just had our wedding reception in the Herrington Yacht Club...Chesapeake Room and I have to say the staff went above and beyond our wildest dreams. The food was amazing, the decoration set up was more amazing than I imagined, and all of our guests had an amazing time at the wedding. Our super team of Adria, Michael and Krissy made sure everything was perfect. Thank you so much for the wedding of our dreams!

We had an amazing experience at Herrington on the Bay! We were extremely pleased with their professionalism and desire to make our day perfect. They took care of so many small tasks before, during, and after the wedding which created a stress free experience. We worked with Brittany Bergendahl prior to the event, and she helped us greatly with planning, preparation and organization. The decorations and flowers were done by Krissy Curtis (on staff at Herrington on the Bay), and she did a phenomenal job! Sarah Music was our on site coordinator, and she ensured everything went flawlessly during our ceremony and reception. All of our guests commented that the experience was wonderful, and the decorations were absolutely amazing!

We were married July 2014 at Herrington on the Bay! Our ceremony was on the Polynesian Bridal lawn and the reception was in the big paradise ballroom tent. I truly do not think there is a more beautiful ceremony site in MD than the polynesian bridal lawn. The setting makes you feel like you are in paradise. So many of our guests are still talking about how beautiful it was. The service provided by the Herrington staff is top-notch. Immediately following the ceremony my husband and I were presented with our drinks of choice, and also a platter of amazing appetizers for us and our wedding party while we took photos. When we sat down at our sweetheart table there was a display of all of the appetizers from the cocktail hour, a glass of champagne, a glass of our drink of choice, and also our signature drink (a margarita). AMAZING! Every 10-15 min someone checked on us too. We were truly treated like royalty. To top it all off, the food greatly surpassed my expectations. I have been wishing I had eaten more coconut shrimp, crab dip, and more of the chicken we chose ever since!

Michael was so helpful and accommodating through our entire planning process. He took good care of us! Lexy was our wedding coordinator and definitely helped the ceremony and the reception flow so smoothly. She even handled and fixed a few of my little table assigning mess-ups. Thanks, Lexy :) Both Lexy and Michael are professional and very good at their jobs! I couldn't recommend Herrington any more. It is worth every dollar. If you truly want to be king and queen for the day in the most beautiful venue in Maryland- get married here!
*Not only is Herrington on the Bay an awesome venue, but the Inn at Herrington has gorgeous suites for getting ready, and also for guests. There is even a house on the harbor available for rent. This made for an awesome weekend full of celebrations for us and our guests. Awesome amenities & Mangos Pool bar was a blast.

Herrington on the Bay is a wonderful place to get married! The staff was amazing, the venue is beautiful and they make it so easy. The gardens are gorgeous and then reception venues are so nice you hardly need to have any decorations. Brittany and Adria were wonderful to work with! My wedding there was beautiful and I had any amazing time and I never felt like I had to worry about anything because the staff at Herrington had everything under control.
Thank you Herrington on the Bay!

My husband and I couldn't be happier with our experience at Herrington on the Bay. We visit Herrington Harbor all the time and we knew it was the perfect place for us to get married. The tropical atmosphere at Herrington almost made us feel like we had a destination wedding without the distance. The bridal garden is scattered with palm trees and colorful flowers and the bay is in the background. It truly was a picturesque setting.

Beth and Lexy went above and beyond for us! They did an awesome job of making sure everything went smoothly and were always available to answer all of our questions. I was so impressed at how well everything came together in the Yacht Club. Thanks to Beth and Lexy the day was stress-free.

All of our guests raved about the crab dip and after the reception the party moved to Mango's. It was so convenient having a fun bar/restaurant next door to keep the party going.

Overall, we would highly recommend Herrington to friends and family.

PS. The crumb cake that they have is absolutely perfect!! Highly recommended and well worth it.

I was very pleased with how everything turned out at my wedding at Herrington on the Bay. They were on top of everything and made our day worry free. The weather wasn't looking very good for our outdoor wedding, but they did everything they could to ensure we got our beautiful outdoor wedding...from handing out umbrellas to guests and wiping down chairs when the rain stopped. We got to have our wedding outside and it was beautiful! Adria did a great job at coordinating everything and Krissy did a great job with the décor! We received compliments from everyone about how beautiful the site was, how beautiful the décor was, how great the food was, etc.! I strongly recommend Herrington on the Bay to anyone planning a wedding.

I absolutely have nothing negative to say about Herrington on the Bay. Their location is ideal for any couple looking for a gorgeous scenery by the water. Their Yacht Club was recently updated with hardwood floors, new windows and a GORGEOUS chandelier. Oh, and don't get me started on the food! My now husband and I wanted a very non-traditional menu, consisting of gourmet pizza, a Reuben station and Philly Cheese Steak station. Michael, Sarah and Chef Tom were more than happy to get creative with the menu and without a doubt excelled with it! The bacon wrapped scallops were the biggest hit with our guests, so I would definitely recommend those. To sum Michael, Sarah and Krissy in one word would be awesome. They were extremely helpful and responsive when any changes needed to be made to the menu, the layout of the reception area or the flowers. Everyone deserves a day off, but Sarah would respond to my emails from her iPhone on her days off! Michael was our main man! I thought for sure he was going to kill me whenever I made a change to the menu (and please believe there were changes), but he always responded respectfully and would laugh at me and promise that he wouldn't kill me. Krissy made the most beautiful bouquets! I literally almost cried when she delivered them to my room at the Herrington Inn. She decorated the wooden arc, lined the aisle with blue mason jars and flowers and hung paper lanterns in the Yacht Club. Being the coordinator, Sarah was the main person behind making my day come true. We left our decorations, candy for the candy buffet, etc. with Sarah the day before the wedding and gave her pictures of how we wanted the tables to be set up and she did it flawlessly! She made sure everything went off without a hitch and the timeline stayed on schedule. Like I said in the beginning, I have not one negative thing to say about Herrington on the Bay and their staff. They made our day just as I pictured! I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Have a destination wedding right at home! First of all this place speaks for itself. It is the decoration. The backdrops are amazing; from the pier, the small beach, the water feature, the marina, the tent, to the the palm trees and flowers. Picture options are endless. The price for the location is great and they will work to keep you within your desired range. (ps even when you think people are not going to drink that much alcohol, yes they will! lol) The staff was excellent! Customer service was off the charts! If you have question, they have an answer. The food was to die for. And overall everyone could not stop telling me how awesome the location was, how much they loved it there, and how much they enjoyed the food. That lasting impression was exactly what I wanted my venue to do! I wanted it to speak for me, to my guest just like it did when I first experienced it. Thank you.

My husband and I got married at Herrington on the Bay June 7, 2014 and had an amazing experience. The event coordinators worked hard to make our wedding day special. We had such an amazing time and it couldn’t have gone more smoothly.

The Herrington staff was friendly, responsive, and personable right from the beginning when we had our first meeting in November 2012. They were always there to answer our questions and we felt like they really cared about making our day perfect and seeing the vision for our wedding.

The Herrington venue is beautiful and the Bridal Garden was such a picturesque spot for the ceremony.

We also give our regards to the chef because the food at the reception was delicious.

We stayed a bit late after the reception; I had trouble getting everyone out of the reception room at the end of the night, but we were not rushed/pushed out.

I would highly recommend this venue.

It is such a beautiful setting on the Chesapeake - the ceremony on the Bridal Lawn was so picturesque - sailboats on the water - it was gorgeous. The Polynesian Ballroom is beautiful. Brittany was there for us every step of the planning process and Lexy was a rock star for our event. We all stayed at the Inn for the weekend - something I would highly recommend. Our guests loved it ! The Herrington shined like a diamond - and they know what they are doing !!

My wedding was May 22, 2014 at Herrington on the Bay. Firstly, the location of this venue is gorgeous and speaks for itself, from the view of the Chesapeake Bay to the immaculate landscaping. I love the tropical feel that the landscaping gives. You will fall in love at first site. Secondly, the team at Herrington on the Bay (Brittany Bergendahl, Sarah Music and Krissy Curtis) was excellent to work with and I was beyond happy with the services they provided. They were professional, responsive to all my needs, and saw the vision I had for both the wedding day as well as the rehearsal dinner. I couldn't have asked for a better team of people to work with or a better venue for my wedding. Herrington on the Bay was hands-down my first choice of venue and by far the most beautiful. It truly feels like a little community with everything all-included, from the ceremony and reception site to the quaint Inn and even the bar/restaurant at Mangos. The Inn is perfect and unique in that it's not like every other hotel but instead individual rooms that open up to a pretty courtyard area and all in view of the beach! You will not be disappointed.

This place is amazing! We just got married here two weeks ago and Lexy and Michael are one of the best people I have ever met. Everything from planning to going over the menu to adding more guest and then to adding more to the menu was flawless. I did not stress not one bit as I was planning my wedding here. They are sincere about making your wedding the best ever and they really did. It was so great. I didn't stress not one time on my wedding day. Everything was on time and I even made last minute adjustments to the reception timing and it was flawless, no one knew anything! We had sparklers at the end and everyone had a blast.. We were the last to leave!!
Thanks again Lexy and Michael and I will be telling everyone I know about you two!

I loves this venue. We were able to save a substantial chunk of money by have our wedding earlier in the day, and it was gorgeous. The food was delicious, the staff was incredibly attentive and on top of everything, and the in house decor/ design person did an amazing job with our flowers and decorations. The coordinator we had was Lexy Harvey and she was amazing. We were very happy with everything and would highly recommend this venue. We had a beach themed wedding that was laid back but still really beautiful and nice. The waterfront setting can't be beat. Thanks for everything!

Herrington on the Bay was a perfect place to get married. It was just what I was looking for, open, lots of windows, on the water and the food was excellent. All of the staff at Herrington are just wonderful. Brittany and Ethan (our planner and coordinator) were so on the ball with everything and were always reachable. If I had any question or concern (even the tiniest issue), they were always happy to answer and help me out. We stayed at the inn, which is right next door, and even they were friendly and helpful. There is a fun restaurant/bar right next door so we were able to keep the party going after our reception. It was a gorgeous location with the sunset. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a place on the water!

My husband and I had our ceremony at the Bridal Gardens and our reception at the Yacht Club on Nov. 3rd 2013 and everything was absolutely perfect. The entire HOTB staff was absolutely wonderful, especially Brittany and Lexy. I cannot thank them enough for all their hard work helping us make our special day perfect.

All of our guest raved about how beautiful the place was (everything is still well manicured with lovely fall colored flowers and the palm trees still look good in November). We also had a lot of our guests comment on how they thought the food was delicious. We had chicken saltimbocca, top round, garlic mashed potatoes, seasonal veggies, crab dip (SOOO GOOD!), and polenta fries. Even the vegetarian dishes (spaghetti squash with a rague topping) looked great. You can tell that the ingredients are all fresh and that the chefs are top notch (and this comes from someone who is a bit of a foodie).

I really can't say enough good things about this place. I highly suggest checking it out - you won't be disappointed!

I couldn't have asked for better people to work with from the start of the process (months before) to the end of my reception. They made the planning so easy.

The wedding and reception sites were GORGEOUS, the food was awesome and the staff went out of their way to accommodate me, my family, and friends! I had the owner of a restaurant approach me during the reception to tell me how good the good was. He was shocked because he said most weddings offer flavorless food. Shout out to Mike Burdish and Lexy Harvey!

This vendor is phenomenal! The venue was picturesque and the individuals that work here are fantastic and very professional.

I had a lot of requests for the reception, some less than ordinary. Anna, the owner, and Beth, my wedding coordinator, were both always very flexible and worked hard to make my family happy. If they were not able to meet the exact request, they were always able to think of a solution that everyone could agree to and was very happy with. I also had a million questions for Beth during the planning process and she was always very patient and provided great advice.

The day of the wedding, my wedding coordinator, Lexy was great! She made sure everything went smoothly, she was there to answer any questions I had, and to even bunch my dress when I could not find my maid of honor! When an issue arose or a guest had a question for her, she was consult me and provide possible solutions when applicable (which was helpful since there was so much going on!).

I could not have asked for better people to work with or a more beautiful venue! Also, all of my guests could not believe how beautiful Maryland could be and said it was one of the best weddings they had attended!

I had the best weekday wedding ever on September 26th! The weather was perfect and the venue provided everything and more. Brittany, Melana, and Lexy are the best! No really...they are. They take good care of their clients at Herrington on the Bay and can handle just about anything thrown their way. I was very indecisive about things the closer I got to the wedding but Brittany and Lexy were always there to answer any questions (good, bad, or weird). And on the day of the wedding, everything was so beautiful. Its been two weeks since I married and people are still raving about how beautiful the venue was and how they had an awesome time. They are the official one stop shop where you can throw in some options and personal prefences.

My husband and I were married at Herrington on September 20th 2013. The word used most often to describe our wedding by our friends and family is perfect! We had perfect weather, and a perfect day. Everyone at Herrington was wonderful, especially Michael, Kerry, and Jodi.

Michael was our first contact at the venue, and he made everything come together just the way we wanted. He was so thorough and patient and helpful, I couldn't have asked for more. He came to the rescue when we had a problem with the hotel, sat in on our tasting to make sure the food was perfect, and even came to the wedding and reception. We saw him serving dinner to our guests. I am so thankful that we had a go getter like him in our corner. He was amazing!

We had Kerry as our other coordinator, and she made sure that everything came together perfectly. The day before the wedding, I came in with all my DIY decor, and she took it all off my hands. She did everything we needed and made my wedding day the least stressful day in the whole wedding planning process!

Jodi worked with us during the ceremony, and was amazing. She got all the guys into place, and even helped me down off the shuttle that brought me to the ceremony. Afterwards, she stayed with the wedding party while we took pictures and made sure my husband and I didn't have to walk to the reception.

If I could have rated Herrington a 10, I would have. The food was amazing, the location was gorgeous, the service from te staff and bar were phenomenal, and their recommendations for other vendors were superb.

I couldn't be happier with my time dealing with Herrington and their staff. They truly made our wedding day perfect.

I had the pleasure of having my wedding at Herrington On the Bay on September 14th, 2013. I could not have asked for a better day! Everything pulled together plus b-e-a-u-tiful weather made our day more amazing then we could have asked for. We worked with Michael and Lexy and I could not have asked for two better people to work with. Michael was our contact until we were assigned a wedding coordinator but was still more than happy to help with anything that we needed. Lexy was amazing! She was great and always had answers to my questions whether they be at our coordinating meetings or over email. On the day of, she was always there when I needed her and when I didnt, she was making sure that I did not need anything. Every one of my guests have said how beautiful the whole day was and how much fun it was. I have to thank everyone at Herrington for this because I could not have done it without them. It is so beautiful here and my husband and I have already decided to go back for a weekend away from home. I highly recommend Herrington On The Bay!

GORGEOUS!!!

I just got married on Aug 16th and I am speechless at how amazing the venue looked! From the ceremony garden to the reception space I was just amazed at how well everything came together.

From the first time I contacted and spoke to Brittany Bergendahl and Ethan Spencer they were on the ball. Since we had everything at HoB it was extremely important that we go with a venue that had not only the experience, but the situational awareness to make key decisions and guide a huge event to success.

We were looking for venues along the Chesapeake waterfront and visited a few places on Kent Island and along the water in Maryland. However upon going to HoB I received just a warm welcoming vibe. From the early stages of choosing sites within the Herrington property to tasting the food (OH GOD THE FOOD IS SO GOOOOOD!!!) my fiance (now husband) always had a great time. Although I was very frazzled as it got closer to the wedding, Brittany and Ethan never skipped a beat and were NEVER short-tempered or seemed irritated by our requests. They were always open to questions, suggestions and I never had an issue reaching them. Everyone was so prompt and courteous! The supporting staff is also incredible. From the servers, to the admin assistants, to the chefs, Herrington is unmatched.

The day of the wedding Ethan (our coordinator) made sure we were sticking to as close to schedule as possible and helped to maintain a calm and orderly atmosphere. Between him and Brittany I had the A-Team!!

Herrington on the bay is a true professional and beautiful venue and you will get exactly what you want if you decide to have your wedding here.

We got married at Herrington's Polynesian Bridal Lawn/ Paradise Ballroom on August 3rd, 2013. My new husband and I have said multiple times in the past few weeks that the best decision we made in wedding planning was choosing HOTB as our venue. From the moment we arrived at Herrington for our initial meeting with Michael, we were treated with the highest importance - although there are so many weddings done at this location every year, we always felt like ours was special. When we would arrive for a meeting, staff knew us by name, and we were greeted with fresh baked goods from the chef. Their attention to detail was superb, emails and calls were returned immediately, and our questions were always answered with, "Of course we can do that for you!"

When it was time to make the switch from Michael to our day-of coordinator, Ethan, the "pass-off" was seamless. Ethan already knew all of the details of our wedding, and Michael still checked in to see how things were going. Adria also was amazing and helped us to plan a beautiful rehearsal dinner at Calypso Bay.

On the day of our wedding, it threatened to rain, and both Michael and Ethan were so on-top of things, watching the weather radar and knew exactly what our "window of time" was to hold the ceremony without getting rained on. They made decisions quickly, involving our other vendors and working extremely well with them. They knew exactly which decisions to include myself and my husband in, and which ones to take over. Where other locations may have said, "It looks like rain, let's go with plan B," HOTB made it so that we were still able to have our dream outdoor wedding on the water.

We could go on and on about how beautiful Herrington is, how delicious their food is, and how convenient it is to have a ceremony, reception, and hotel all on one site. But all of that wouldn't have mattered without the quality of the people we worked with for the past 16 months. We can't thank them all enough!!

The Herrington On the Bay (HOB) team made our wedding vision come to life! I can't rave enough about how professional the staff is, and all that you get for the price is CRAZY! HOB provided an Event Designer (Michael), a Wedding Coordinator (Ethan), and we opted to have a Decorator (Krissy). The three of them, with the entire staff that assisted we so wonderful to work with. They took care of every tiny detail without issue! We stumbled onto HOB one Saturday when they were having their open house, and from that moment we knew it had to be the site for our wedding. We chose to have our wedding at the Beach Pavillion Tent, it was just so beautiful. They even surprised us with a 20 minute fireworks show at the end of the night. We can't thank you guys enough for just such an amazing night! With love, Amy & Andy :O)

I never expected a big wedding in my life, much less finding a hidden gem such as Herrington on the Bay. Herrington on the Bay ended up being the first and only phone call to a wedding venue that I ever made. When the sales coordinator Michael Burdish answered the phone, I was upfront and nervous at the same time about informing him that we were a same sex couple. It was a natural nervousness for me because I'm a gay military man who lived with discrimination and paranoia for so long under don't ask don't tell. Even a year and half after DADT ended, being out as a military man was still very new to me. But right away, Michael challenged my paranoia to help put me at ease; he asked me "Why would we have a problem with you being a same sex couple? We welcome all loving couples who wish to get married here." Right away I was sold to the place over the phone. That set the tone for a great relationship with Herrington on the Bay. From the moment we first visited the site, to the tasting of their delicious food, to the amazing responsiveness over the phone and email with Michael B. and Kerry McNelly, to the warm smiles from the staff as me and my groom walked around hand in hand while wearing my military uniform. At the end of the ceremony and picture-taking, we were blown away when we walked into an amazing dining hall that was decked out with the colors, linen, and place settings that we selected from the ones that Herrington offered. We were also blown away by the centerpieces and floral designs that we had worked out with a vendor from Herrington on the Bay's top-notch preferred vendors list. The icing on the cake (literally) was our beautiful cake from a vendor who was also on Herrington's preferred vendors' list. And for memories, we also selected an awesome photographer from Herrington's preferred vendors list. When it all came together, the evening was 1000 times better than I had imagined in my head during all those months of planning.

This venue is absolutely breathtaking! The staff is amazing and very easy to work with!! On the day of the wedding, it was storming on and off all day. With the ceremony being outside, weather was a concern...it was a concern that I did NOT have to worry about! I worked with Ethan the day of the wedding and he was watching the doppler weather map all day to see where the wedding should be held. It ended up working out beautifully!!

The venue is gorgeous, the staff is great, and the food is wonderful! I could not have asked for a better venue!

We took advantage of the early season discount, which made this venue affordable for us. The ceremony site was absolutely gorgeous. Although the banana trees were not in yet, the landscaping looked beautiful and we received lots of compliments. The renovated room in the Yacht Club was perfect for our reception. The room was set up perfectly - I have no complaints! I worked with Michael and Lexy, and they were both great!

WOW!! What can I say to truly express what an amazing experience we had with Herrington on the Bay!?! From the moment we first laid eyes on the site we knew instantly that it was the “One”. We first met with Michael who showed us around the different site options and walked us through the booking process. He was AWESOME! He was courteous, excellent customer service and beyond helpful.Each email he returned promptly and somehow had a way of calming my nerves :) When they tell you that you can customize just about anything- they mean it! We had grilled cheese and tomato soup appetizers (ps- LOVED and so did all of our guests!) and they didn’t charge us some outrageous amount for it either- they kept it the same price as any other option.We were assigned to Kerry as our rehearsal and wedding coordinator- all I can say is she ROCKED! She was able to plan an amazing rehearsal dinner (with my in laws) and also coordinate our wedding day. Our rehearsal dinner was held in the Historic Yacht Club and was great! So well coordinated and everything went so smoothly. I’m a control freak (I mean really bad) and was banned from the tent on the wedding day (she assured me it would all be taken care of) and she lived up to her word. Everything was in place, all the candles lit and not a detail was overlooked. She listened to every single worry I had and ounce of stress I had and took it all! Great personality, excellent customer service and best day of coordinator a girl could ask for :) All of our guests were impressed with the venue, food and atmosphere. We pretty much took over the Inn with 21 rooms booked for the weekend and it was perfect to have all of our friends and family right on site. Michael even came to say “Congrats” after the ceremony which meant so much to us- it’s the little touches that ranks Herrington above and beyond any other venue site out there. Thank you guys so much for all that you did to make our wedding day better than we dreamed it could be!

I loved working with Herrington on the Bay (HOTB). I worked with Beth initially and then with Lexy to finalize everything. Everyone at HOTB is attentive, responsive, patient and helpful - all the things you need as a bride trying to plan a wedding! I could not be happier with how our wedding ceremony and reception went off. A coordinator came over to help us get the ceremony off without a hitch and the staff really made my groom and I feel pampered and very special. HOTB is absolutely gorgeous and our wedding pictures prove it. I could not have worked with a better, more responsive, or caring vendor. I absolutely adore the entire staff at HOTB and would highly recommend them to anyone. Definitely go to the Welcome Reception if you book this venue - they offer deals on that day that you can't get at any other time - We added strawberry shooters and raspberries to our champagne and it was totally worth it!

Herrington Harbour was wonderful, even though we were freaking out about the hurricane hitting the day before our wedding, they made us feel comfortable that they would work it out no matter what it took even offering us to reschedule if we felt the need to do so. Well we ended up having to move the reception inside but it was so amazing I'm glad we did. Herrington Harbour definitely is all about the customer I will recommend them to anyone planning a large event.

I could not be happier with our wedding at Herrington!! We got married on the Polynesian Bridal Lawn and had the reception in the Paradise Ballroom. We worked with Beth initially to help us plan our event, and Krissy towards the end to put the finish up the final details. We loved working with both of them! Beth was so awesome answering all of my (and my parents) initial questions , As well as helping us make decisions from food to linens to the floor diagram. And Krissy was so helpful and patient with me as I tried to finish up my head count and all the times I changed my mind about certain details! She was also fantastic the day of - she remained calm throughout the whole day while keeping everything running smoothly and on time! The food was delicious! The lighting was perfect! The venue is just beautiful!! I had a picture of what I wanted it all to look like in my head, and what I saw that day was exactly as I had pictured. The staff exceeded our expectations and helped make our day be more than perfect!! All of our guests were in awe with how beautiful everything was and especially the location itself! We had Soooo much fun, I wish we could do it again!!! I would HIGHLY recommend this venue!

From the initial meeting, this I had with Janice who held my hand through the whole process leading up to when Brittany entered the picture to finalize the details of our wedding. They even allowed our dog to be a part of our wedding! The chefs are incredible and the food is to die for! Every detail was cared for even up to our own 'personal waiter' Ms.Darcy who was such a pleasure and was there for us every step of the way through our wedding night! Honestly this review could go on for pages and pages, thank you Herrington for making our wedding dream come true. You could not ask for a better place.

Everything was just amazing! The service, staff, food, location, all of it. We could not have asked for a better or easier time planning the wedding, or a more professional day-of planner to make sure we didn't have to worry about a thing. And the value for the money was fantastic. It was a spectacular experience.

Ethan Spencer was our event coordinator who on the day of our wedding did a great job. Herrington on the bay is amazing.my family and quests and my husband and I stayed there. it was everything we wanted for our wedding day. the weather was perfect and the ceremony was beautiful. the pictures looked like we were on a tropical Island.the place is just gorgeous all of our guests are still talking about how great the food was and how wonderful everything was. My husband and I are so happy we choose Herrington on the bay and would recommend to any one looking for a great venue this is it..As a happy newlywed couple we are 100 % satisfied.

Herrington on the bay was fabulous! It was everything we could ask for a venue with our budget. Our guest forgot that we were in Maryland because of how beautiful the area was! Palm trees in Maryland? It was stunning. Working with Janice and Lexy, our event coordinators was simple, easy and stress free. Herrington took care of everything. I wanted chiavari chairs; they were included. I didn't have to rent out for barely anything. The best part of Herrington is the all-inclusiveness. And the food was great! Our package was $89.99 per guest, and even with their least expensive food option, everyone was raving about how delicious everything was! Make sure you get their infused lemonade station too: The strawberry basil lemonade was a huge hit!! I wish I could've took some home with me. I am overly-satisfied with Herrington and my guest loved the service too. The ceremony site overlooked the Chesapeake bay and the grounds were so well kept and the flowers were stunning. If you want a destination wedding but maybe couldn't afford it or didn't want to travel so far, check out Herrington on the Bay, they are awesome!! We thank you guys so much for making the best day of our lives, truly the best day!!

The Herrington is like a destination wedding without having to travel the miles. It is absolutely beautiful and the staff makes you feel like you are extremely special. They were well prepared and are very flexible. I asked for different lighting they did the research and worked it out. Everything we needed we were able to have and even when it rained/stormed they made me feel like everything was under control and like it wasn't even raining. Our big day was more than beautiful and memorable due to all of the staff and the wonderful venue. The venue is not cheap but trust me it is worth every dime.

Everything went great and we were all very happy with the venue and how smoothly our wedding went! We received a lot of compliments about the location, the food, and the service.

The DJ we selected from the reccomended vendor list was not as professional and did not do as good of a job as we had hoped for. But this is in no way the fault of Herrington on the Bay and we all loved the venue and service we recieved from them!

I would reccomend Herrington to my friends and family for any event. Thank you to everyone for all of their hard work!!

My wife and I fell in love with the Herrington the first time we saw it. Pictures really do not reflect the beauty and relaxing environment present when you are actually there. We worked with Janice for our overall planning. Lexy for event coordination and management on the day of the wedding, Krissy handled our decorations and lighting, and Chef Mike handled food and menu. The entire staff is spectacular. They all know how to make you feel taken care of. We never once had to worry about anything. Everyone made sure before hand and on the day of the event that our wedding was perfect.

Honestly, planning a wedding at the wedding was so enjoyable. All our friends were stressed out and crazy planning their weddings. We looked forward to our phone calls and in-person planning sessions with the Herrington staff.

The food at the Herrington was fantastic. In fact, they continually blew us away with unique recipes and we even left with a new personal favorite dish that only they could have presented to us!

We had many special requests for our event that included special plans for a performance and entrance, live music, birds, and more. They accommodated all our requests and found ways to make our plans better than we had even thought of.

The Herrington is a hidden gem in Maryland. Most of our guests had never even known a place like this was situated so close to DC. This is truly a special destination that you must visit.

Our wedding was on the Bridal lawn and the ceremony was in the Yacht Club. The transition between the two was flawless and their staff was there to assist our guests every step of the way. A month has passed and we still keep hearing from our guests and how much they loved the event and especially the location. (and the food!)

If you want to actually remember your wedding as a magical experience, have less stress, know that everything is taken care of, and feel like someone is really watching out for your wedding, go with the Herrington.

Oh, and the suites they offer on site are awesome! Definitely stay there if you!

Polynesian Bridal Lawn and Paradise Ballroom: Beautiful location, very professional, and did a wonderful job keeping me organized and on schedule from beginning to end! Food is amazing and were very accommodating in my many food allergies including, gluten, nuts, and dairy. My wedding was absolutely perfect and went off without a hitch. I got so many complements on picking this location. Its a little pricey, but they were very open to working with me to make it happen. Cant think of a single thing I would change!

Herrington on the Bay ended up being the perfect place for my wedding day. I had always dreamed of having a wedding on the water and we passed this place many times on our way to North Beach. My husband actually was the one that thought we should check it out since I had said before how nice it looked.

We worked with Janice Loos and our event coordinator was Lexy Harvey. They were both truly terrific women to work with! They were always so nice, helpful and cheerful when we saw them. On the actually wedding day, it was so great to have Lexy there. She saw to it that everything ran just as it should and always made sure to check on my hubby and I to see how we were doing or if we needed anything. Before the start of the ceremony as she held my train, she assured me that we would get no rain, as the radar looked clear, and earlier that day it had downpoured. It was so nice for her to assure me and well, she was right! A few spits happened but it was just a gorgeous night. Also, one of the most amazing things they did for us, was that we had a credit for guests that weren't going to be able to attend. I had asked if we could do a champagne toast and was told by Lexy it would cost the credit plus this much more. Disappointed, I said no. But the next day Lexy e-mails me and tells me that they both discussed it and would be able to do it on the credit! That really made me so happy. And that champagne was a really tasty one, too.

I also got lucky that there were palm trees on site. I was told when I reserved my date that they don't usually put them in until after memorial day but thanks to the warm weather, they put them in the day before my wedding! I was really happy about that. Everything just looked so beautiful as I was hoping. And the food was delicious. They do their own catering. We had the Chicken Chesapeake, buffet style and for the vegetarians, Vegetable Lasagna. Many of the guests told me how good the food was, and it definitely was. I just wish I had gotten to eat more of the crab dip, because it was my favorite thing they were serving!

All in all, everything my guests had to say about Herrington was nothing but good. Everyone loved how beautiful it was and thought it was the perfect setting for us. I would definitely recommend this venue, especially if your looking for someplace with a garden feel and on the water. It will definitely be beautiful!

I got married at the Polynesian Bridal Lawn and had my reception at the Paradise Ballroom and it was better than I could have ever imagined! Michael Burdish was my event designer and he was very patient and thorough! Lexy Harvey was an amazing wedding event coordinator and Ethan Spencer was a complete joy! Krissy Myers was able to make my visions become a reality! I am extremely thankful for everyone that was involved with making this my dream wedding! I would HIGHLY recommend this venue to other brides. The scenery was amazing and all of my guests seemed to really enjoy themselves! Lexy was there to help me throughout the reception and Michael even stopped by to say hi (really meant a lot to my husband and I). Their help was very much appreciated and I would recommend this place to anyone for any special event! :-)

Hi Lexy,

I just wanted to thank you and the entire staff that helped at our
reception this past Saturday. Everything turned out perfect - the
decor was beautiful, the food was delicious, the service was
excellent, and the entire evening went along very smoothly. Almost
everyone that attended was very impressed with the Herrington on the
Bay staff and the Island room itself - the fire pit was a huge hit
too!

I cannot thank you enough for all your help, guidance, and support.
Also a special thank you for helping us to coordinate with the Mangos
owner - we had such a fun time at the after party which was very
important to us - Off the Hook would definitely have made the older
folks leave the reception early, which we really didn't want. But it
was a huge bonus having such a talented musician like Doug Segree play
as well - I think the acoustic duo was perfect for the space.

Please pass along our gratitude to everyone that helped make our
reception so wonderful.

Kelly & Kevin

Wow, where do I start. Herrington is AMAZING. We booked them for our rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony and reception. We had our rehearsal in the Historic Yacht Club, we were married at the Polynesian Bridal Lawn and we had our reception in the Paradise Ballroom, so we experienced all Herrington has to offer.

We booked Herrington because the wedding and rehearsal site is the most beautiful we saw anywhere. The landscaping is simply amazing and we love the waterfall entrance and lighting in the ballroom. After falling in love with the location and booking the venue, we later learned that Herrington provides the most excellent customer service we have ever experienced anywhere. Michael, our event designer, instantly responded to every email and phone call, gave us great advice, ensured other vendors were providing us excellent service, dealt with our oddly split invoices and helped me relax when I was going into "Bridezilla" mode. We absolutely loved meeting and working with him.

Lexy, our rehearsal dinner event coordinator, also did a great job. Our rehearsal dinner was absolutely perfect. The setup was exactly like we requested and everyone was raving about how good the Greek dinner was. Also, the bartender was awesome, he was extremely attentive and very personable.

Brittany, our ceremony and reception event coordinator, ensured the vendors did what they were supposed to and everything ran smoothly. We were so happy with the ceremony setup and everything about the reception site was perfect. The linens looked amazing, the layout was perfect and the servers were excellent. All the food came out in a timely fashion and VIP server did a great job of getting us food and drinks immediately following the ceremony. During the reception, the servers ensured I was never without a drink and even put some additional appetizers on our table so we didn’t miss out on them. The chefs were simply amazing with how they handled our guests allergies and special menu requests.

If only I had another huge party I needed to throw so I could work with them again!

When I started my search for a venue, I looked at 4 places and this was the only one I wanted. Took my now husband back the next day and we booked on the spot. And that was the best decision we made!!

We used Herrington on the Bay for our ceremony and reception, and it was beautiful. Herrington is just an hour out of D.C., but feels much farther away. As a Floridian, I was so pleasantly surprised to see such a beautiful, tropical waterfront site in Marlyand. We worked with Michael and Krissy who were both extremely professional and on the ball. We booked the venue about a year in advance, and had great communication with everyone at Herrington leading up to the wedding. They offer a reception to showcase local vendors (who are great), which helped us a lot. Leading up until the wedding, we felt very confident that Krissy and the Herrington staff wouldn't miss a beat. We were right. On the day of our outdoor ceremony, we faced an extremely threatening sky. Krissy knew how badly we wanted to have an outdoor ceremony, so got us started a few minutes early, and expertly got everyone in the tent once it started rain during cocktail hour. They were able to adjust the schedule on the fly and make our day wonderful. The food and catering itself was great. We received many compliments from our guests on the beauty of the setting and professionalism of the staff. We were so happy with Herrington-- we can't wait to visit on our anniversary.

We just got married at Herrington and it was a dream come true! If you are looking for a destination wedding with the comfort of being close to home we would highly recommend this venue! The venue was beautiful and we lucked out on perfect weather! Everything ran smoothly which allowed everyone to just have fun. The vendors worked well with each other (Brian from Crow Entertainment was making sure the guests kept moving and grooving, Sweet Sue made the beautiful and delicous cake, Lily Barrett did a beautiful job with the flower arrangements, and Hope McNew the officiant lead a touching ceremony). Brittany and Janice worked all year long to make sure the day was everything I dreamed and more. The guests had so much fun and we continue to get compliments on the gorgeous venue and the good food! We're so glad our google search lead us to Herrington and would recommend this venue for anyone getting married!

The venue was beautiful and we lucked out on perfect weather! Everything ran smoothly which allowed everyone to just have fun. The vendors worked well with each other (Brian from Crow Entertainment was making sure the guests kept moving and grooving, Sweet Sue made the beautiful and delicous cake, Lily Barrett did a beautiful job with the flower arrangements, and Hope McNew the officiant lead a touching ceremony). Brittany and Janice worked all year long to make sure the day was everything I dreamed and more. The guests had so much fun and we continue to get compliments on the gorgeous venue and the good food! We're so glad our google search lead us to Herrington and would recommend this venue for anyone getting married! Read less

We had an amazing experience with Herrington on the Bay. We worked with Stacey and Lexy and both were extremely responsive, sometimes even within minutes of sending an email! From the very beginning, everyone has gone above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect for the big day. It could not have gone more smoothly the day of, and our guests raved about the gorgeous view and the delicious food. Some who recently got married told us they wished they had found this place rather than their own venue! We couldn't have asked for a better venue or group of people to work with. Thanks Herrington!! We would highly recommend them!

I loved Herrington on the Bay. We looked at so many wedding venues and there is truly no other wedding venue that compared! It gives you a destination wedding feel and you forget your in the state of Maryland. We got married last September and the weather was perfect for our outside wedding. The staff are amazing and especially Brittany who made my wedding weekend unforgettable!!

We were very happy with Herrington on the Bay. From the moment we first arrived, we were amazed by how beautiful and perfect the setting was. We were able to sit down and work out a very reasonable deal so that we could afford to have our wedding here. We had our ceremony at the Polynesian Bridal Lawn and our reception in the Paradise Ballroom. The landscape was so beautiful that we barely needed any flowers to decorate with. We had several meetings with the staff and were able to work out details about the menu and any other questions we had. We were assigned a wedding coordinator who helped us work out all the final details before the wedding. By the time we showed up for the wedding, we had no worries or concerns about anything because we felt so confident in their services. The staff was very helpful prior to the ceremony and during the reception. Everything ran very smoothly. We could not have been happier about how everything worked out. Herrington on the Bay is wonderful because they have a friendly and helpful staff and a beautiful location for weddings.

This was by far the best choice to have our wedding! When my husband and I walked on the bridal lawn, I knew right then and there that this was the place where I wanted to get married. My husband loved it too! Our wedding theme was beachy, light and airy, so this was the perfect spot. The view of the water is beautiful and the landscaping added a nice touch. Our wedding planner, Katie was so much fun to work with. She gave us great ideas and was always around either by phone or email to answer and questions we had. The food was delicious and the tent was beautiful. I also liked how everything was in one spot. We said our vows, took a few steps and there was the party! I wish I could relive our wedding day....it was perfect!

In a few words....Gorgeous Grounds and Facilities, Excellent Customer Service, Excellent Food, Affordable Prices! The service we received from all of the staff at Herrington on the Bay was above 5 star! We had initially thought we would do a destination wedding somewhere tropical, but then decided we would rather have all of our family there on our wedding day. When I found Herrington on the Bay, through a google search for MD waterfront weddings, I was so excited because it seemed like it would give a tropical destination feel, but was only an hour away. The pictures on their website are so gorgeous, I hoped it looked as good in person. When we went for an initial meeting, I couldn't believe that the site was even more gorgeous than the website pictures. It's like a tropical getaway in MD. I had previously visited Chesapeake Beach Resort (which I wasn't too impressed with), without even knowing about Herrington, which I later found out is only a few minute drive away. The wedding coordinator, Beth that we met with was very friendly and knowledgeable about Herrington. She helped us plan a tentative menu on our first meeting, and helped us with ways to make our day more affordable. We were married on Memorial Day Monday 2010, with the 5pm ceremony outside on the Herring Bay Bridal Garden, and 6-10pm reception inside the Historic Yacht Club. We were fortunate enough to perfect weather! A really great thing about Herrington, is that they have these welcome receptions where you can go and meet all of the vendors that are familiar with Herrington. We found our DJ..Crow Entertainment, florist.. Lillie Barrett, and cake lady... Sweet Sue's (who were all awesome) all in one day at a welcome reception. We were assigned a wedding event planner, Brittany, who was awesome and helped us continue to plan out the details of our wedding and was there on the day of the wedding to help everything flow smoothly. This was a huge help, and not at an additional cost. The Yacht club was very classy, and spacious with 2 levels. We had the cocktial hour downstairs, dinner upstairs, and then dancing downstairs. The food was delicous. There was food to sample at the welcome recpetion, but we also went for a private tasting to choose are main dishes. Very glad we did this, it was a fun experience and helped us finalize our menu. We served Filet Mignon, Bob Marley Jamaican chicken, Herrington salad, green beans almondine, and roasted red potatoes. I had read a few reviews that the food at Herrington was not the greatest...but we recieved lots of compliments from our guests about the food and we loved it! We met with the chef, Mike, at the tasting, who was the chef the day of our wedding. They made everything exactly the way we had requested. He even gave my husband and I a special treat of chocolate covered strawberries and champagne to take with us. Beth and Brittany were extremely helpful throughout the planning process and always answered my emails right away. They were flexible even in adding a few guests a few days before the wedding. I would suggest to any couple planning a wedding at Herrington to book a room at the Herrrington Inn. My parenst booked the Dry Tortuga Suite..It was great to have a place to get ready that was just a few feet away from the ceremony site. (A little side note about Chesapeake beach Resort....My husband and I stayed in one of their Honeymoon suites, which gave the guys a close by place to hang out before the wedding. The room was nice, but expensive, and the front desk staff would not let my husband check in to the room the day of the event because his name was not on the credit card..even though I paid for the room in full 3 months prior and his name was on our wedding room block.. My father-in law paid for the room again in order to get him in, which we didn't find out about until a week later). Thanks to all of the Herrington Staff for Making our Wedding Day Absolutely Perfect! I would highly recommend Herrington to any couple looking for a gorgeous, friendly, affordable wedding venue in Maryland.

From the moment we looked at the location, the staff at Herrington on the Bay were incredibly kind, gracious, diligent, professional and focused on ensuring every detail of our wedding was perfect. They took us through every detail of the wedding ceremony and reception to ensure we had a say in every choice possible. They promptly returned emails and phone calls and sent us intermittent cards and updates via mail to ensure we were keeping up with our wedding timeline. All the way through our wedding, they ensured that we did not have to worry about the details because they were all taken care of. Each time we met with staff to go over wedding items, the chefs would prepare special treats for us to have at the meeting and to take home with us - it is these types of extra special touches that really make Herrington's staff and customer service shine.

They were also very willing to work with us on our budget to get us what we wanted at a price we could generally afford. They told us what was important to include in our ceremony and reception and what was not really necessary.

The site itself was absolutely breathtaking, and Herrington told us when all of the palm trees and flowers were going to be planted when we booked our wedding date, and they were accurate. So, we were able to enjoy the beautiful foliage that we saw when we first visited the site on our wedding day.

The staff on our wedding day were prompt, professional and kind. All of our guests commented on how helpful and prepared the staff was and how every element of the reception went perfectly with their help. In addition, all of our guests commented on how good the food was, especially the appetizers. This is something we hear very often - how great the food is at Herrington - and it held true at our wedding.

Afterwards, the staff organized all of our items on one table, so it was easy for our families to know what to take with them.

Overall, Herrington on the Bay is the most beautiful outdoor location we saw in Maryland for a wedding, and the staff was the best we met - consummate professionals with great personalities.

This venue was MORE than helpful. They accommodated every request, without any fuss. I was much unprepared for a lot of things because I planned my wedding within a few months, and Beth and Brittany were so helpful with suggestions and got the job done. All of my guests were EXTREMELY impressed with the staff and venue. Beth was also very helpful with finding ways to keep the cost down, which was great do to my small budget. I am soooo happy with the way everything came together and I know Herrington on the Bay made that possible! Also I used Sweet Sue's (a preferred vendor for Herrington) as my bakery to make the cake, and I've gotten TONS of good reviews about the cake. So good food (Herrington on the Bay), good drinks (thanks to Jimmy our bartender!) and good music (thanks to our DJ Chris Sheldon) made our wedding wonderful!

They were absolutely perfect. We worked with both Beth and Brittany who were friendly and helpful throughout the entire process, and we wound up having an amazing and stress-free event (Which sounds impossible with weddings, but seriously, working with them eliminated most of the stress I'd expected)
We had a Halloween wedding, and while a lot of vendors turned their nose up at the idea, the people at Herrington were delighted and worked with us to make sure the day was perfect, from suggesting black tablecloths with orange napkins, to surprising us on our wedding day with gorgeous jack-o-lanterns decorating our buffet. The food was SOOO good (you have to get the crab dib, OMG, it's the best I've ever had), and all of the waitstaff were super friendly the whole night.
Overall, they were a key element to making our wedding totally perfect. :D

My husband and I had our wedding at the Paradise Ballroom at Herrington on the Bay during Memorial Day Weekend 2009 and everything was absolutely perfect! Herrington on the Bay is a beautiful venue right on the water with gorgeous landscaping and breathtaking views of the Chesapeake Bay. What made Herrington such a special, memorable place for our wedding reception was not just its beauty but the competence, dedication, and professionalism of the staff, especially Anna Chaney Willman. In the months leading up to the wedding, we found the staff to be extraordinarily helpful, detail-oriented, full of excellent suggestions, and willing to accommodate our every request. They worked with us to create a customized menu, which we had the opportunity to sample during the tasting reception - a delightful event that takes place several months before the wedding. The food at the reception was outstanding and exactly what we asked for. Everyone commented on the delicious crab dip, which we highly recommend! We were also impressed by how effortless the execution of the event was for us. In the weeks before the wedding, they welcomed our frantic emails with last-minute requests, assuring us that everything would be taken care of - and we were not disappointed on our wedding day. They maintained a strict timeline from the cocktail hour all the way to the last dance, so we were able to enjoy each portion of the evening without feeling that the time was getting away from us. Herrington on the Bay and the wonderful people who work there helped make our wedding day the best day of our lives by allowing us to throw an amazing, memorable party for our family and friends at an incredible venue. We give Herrington on the Bay our highest recommendation and look forward to celebrating anniversaries there in the future!

Herrington made our dream wedding come true! The location is absolutely breathtaking. Everyone couldn't believe they were still in Maryland and whenever I show people our pictures they think we ran off to Hawaii or something. They were very responsive and easy to work with in the planning process and were quite flexible. Everything seemed to go so smooth on our wedding day. They directed everyone to the ceremony site and shuttled them to and from the reception site on a tram. They had food and drinks waiting for at the ceremony site while we were taking pictures. The food was amazing! We had so many compliments on how delicious everything was. I highly recommend Herrington!!!!

Herrington on the Bay is the most gorgeous venue in Maryland. It is a bit of a drive from Baltimore but it is well worth it! Everything is right on the water and it is very tropical. I sent my photos to a few people that were not at the wedding and they thought I was married in the islands. Our guests were amazed at how gorgeous Herrington is. They set up cocktail tables and a bar outside of the tent so a lot of people spent the evening out there taking in the views. We had friends that brought their boats and that stayed at the Herrington Harbour Inn, everyone loved it, many people said they are going to start going there for weekend getaways! The Crab Dip was amazing. The staff was great too! I was one of those brides that had a million questions and they were always right there to help me, no matter how annoying I was! If you are looking to have a waterfront wedding and want it to feel like a destination wedding, GO TO HERRINGTON!

We looked at several wedding venues, but none of them compared to Herrington. The ceremony site was beautiful and right on the water. It was perfect! Herrington is a beautiful place to get married and I would highly recommend it. All our guests commented how beautiful it was and they couldn't believe this was in Maryland. It felt like you were somewhere tropical. Our pictures turned out great!

Herrington was absolutely wonderful. Not only were their prices extremely reasonable, but they also have a very friendly and professional staff. Their whole job is to provide for a wedding, so they definitely know what they're doing, and they're even open to your own ideas of doing things as well. The setting is so gorgeous, and the yacht club building was a great setup for dinner and the reception. You definitely have to stay on top of things though and double check everything. How creative and perfect is is still going to be up to you..

Herrington on the Bay is the most gorgeous place in Maryland for a tropical-themed wedding. We have been asked numerous times, "What island did you get married on?" We always respond...Maryland? The staff was so helpful. The food was great. We had a steel drum player/singer do the music for our ceremony. It really added to the island feel. We loved Herrington!

I usually don't write reviews but I felt it was necessary to write about my wonderful experience with Herrington on the Bay. We had a ceremony and reception and the months of planning and working with their staff has been extremely helpful. I was hands off and let them do the work for me.

Ceremony was nice and intimate and fit my guest of 80 comfortably. The venue is beautiful which DIDNT require much decorations. That was cost saving in itself. Some places require a lot of decorations and is something to think about when looking for the right venue.

Reception was perfect! ALL MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS RAVED about the food. I, as the bride even sat down and ate my entire meal..it was too good to miss out. I've even heard a couple folks saying it was the best wedding food they've ever had. Good food, plenty of drinks = happy guests.

For a reasonably priced venue, beautiful views, and great food, I would recommend the Herrington to my friends and family.

Herrington on the Bay was wonderful from start to finish! From the moment my fiance and I stepped onto the property we knew that was where we wanted to get married. Michael was awesome working with us up until we were assigned our coordinator, Kerry. Kerry was awesome as well. While this venue is beautiful, and I was dreaming of getting married outside by the water, rain came up right before our ceremony, and we were forced inside. But I just want to say that if this happens to you - at Herrington your wedding will still be amazing! Kerry was so on top of it and worked with us to make changes at the last minute to accommodate the weather, timing/flow of events, etc. A shuttle came and brought us to the yacht club, and Kerry was outside getting drenched holding an umbrella for me. The processional was down the stairs, and we had the ceremony on the lower level facing the windows to the marina.

People RAVED about the venue and the food. The food was phenomenal - we even special requested an appetizer (pierogies) and they were fantastic! We did a buffet dinner and it worked out very well. The layout is great in the yacht club with dinner upstairs and dancing downstairs - we also loved that it was open over the dance floor.

The only thing that kept me from giving all 5.0's is that as the event was getting closer I would sometimes email questions and get out of office replies as the coordinators don't work every day onsite - I hated waiting days for a response, but overall, everything was always fine and all my questions were answered/requests were accommodated as soon as Kerry was back onsite.

I would most definitely recommend this venue!

I could not even begin to imagine a more perfect experience than the one the Herrington-On-The-Bay staff created for my husband and I. Virtually all of our guests traveled in from out of town and every single one of them was blown away by the quality of service, attentiveness to detail, and superior professionalism demonstrated by the HOTB staff. Stacey Hill is an incredible planner; she is meticulous, personal, and- simply put- a joy to work with. Our day-of coordinator, Lexy Harvey, was nothing short of superb. Throughout the wedding planning process, they dealt with all of our wedding related issues (both the real and threatening ones as well as the stress-related imaginary ones...) in a timely and understanding manner. While their services are a bit pricey (everything is a la carte, and the expenses add up- fast), you are hard pressed to find a more accommodating venue in the Annapolis-DC- Baltimore area... or a less expensive one. You get exactly what you pay for and then some- you cannot put a price tag on Stacey and Lexy's warmth, competence, and creativity.

After the earthquakes, hurricanes, and floods all we wanted for our wedding day was no rain...not only did we get a beautifully sunny day, but we also got sooooooo much more! We can't thank HOTB enough for all of the hard work put into making our day awesome! We enjoyed every minute. Stacy and Brittany thought of everything which allowed us to relax and enjoy our day; we really appreciated it! I am not much of a planner, but Stacy and Brittany kept me on track and the process was very simple. HOTB even did our wedding favors, personalized mini champagne bottles. They were affordable and quite tasty! All of our guests loved the location and said that it felt like they were on a mini tropical vacation! After my co-workers saw the pictures they couldn't believe we were still in the state of Maryland. We've heard numerous times throughout the night and after that it was the best wedding ever. We couldn't have done it without HOTB coordinators and staff.

Herrington on the Bay is an incredibly beautiful venue and location with an extraordinary staff working there. Stacey and Brittany helped to make my wedding day perfect from the beginning. Stacey helped us work with our budget, and Brittany was very detail oriented. She went above and beyond to help me with any and everything I needed. She was very friendly and responsive to the ridiculous amount of emails I sent her in the months leading up to my wedding. The food at Herrington is very good, and the chef was always very friendly, feeding us everytime we had a meeting, even it was an unplanned visit! It was a wonderful location to bring together our families from Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Virginia.

My guests did say one of the bartenders was not so friendly, but Brittany assured me she would take care of that after the event. Additionally, I was slightly disappointed that there was loud steel drum music playing in the background during my wedding ceremony from the bar next door and I believe the other wedding site. Wish I would have known about this, BUT I took it as some free background music :-)

In all, these small shortcomings were totally outweighed by all of the wonderful things that Herrington had to offer. Their staff is truly top notch and I would highly recommend them to any bride. As a part time wedding coordinator myself, I am not always easy to please, but they went above and beyond my expectations.

Thank you Stacey, Brittany, and all of the staff at Herrington. We truly appreciated all of your hard work!!

I absolutely love Herrington! It is by far one of the most beautiful places in Maryland to get married. We were married on the Polynesian Bridal Lawn. Herrington overall is a little on the pricy side but for what you are getting it is worth it!! They were also very willing to work with us and were flexible so we would still be within our budget. The service and attentiveness to us was exceptional.
My only complaint would be with the wedding planner that was assigned to us. She was super nice and I really liked her as a person but we were told she would keep things going during the wedding and reception. She didn't attend the rehearsal which was odd to me if she was going to instruct us for the wedding. I tried to fill ehr in but of course she couldn't remember everything. For example, we had a wish box that didn't get used because I relied on her to instruct the Guest Book Attendants and that didn't happen. At the reception also I was told she would keep things moving..and I don't think I even saw her until the very end of the reception. I will say she did a great job decorating, the reception was exactly what I wanted, it was just the directing/instructing part that was bad.
But besides the issues with the wedding planner, the wedding and reception where amazing. You can not go wrong with Herrington! The wedding planner is a minor thing when you look at all the other aspects of Herrington. I would recommend this site to anyone! We had a paradise wedding right in Maryland! :)

First, the venue is gorgeous and well maintained. The staff clearly love to work there and that is evident by the level of service that they give. And by the level of cheerfulness while they do it! Once we decided to book Herrington for our festivities, we visited the venue several times. Each time, we were greeted with organized, helpful and excited people. In between visits, communication was excellent. This was particularly important to us since we live in New York. It's hard enough to plan a destination wedding. But I was pleased with the amount of help I received and with the flexibility of the staff at Herrington.
Unfortunately, we had a glitch in our timing (one of our vendors was VERY late). The staff at Herrington were on top of it every step of the way. They helped us to rearrange our program to make sure we fit everything in. And they even extended our reception time to make up for some of the time we lost waiting for that vendor's faux pas. Our friends are still raving about the food too! We had such a great experience that we booked a room at the Inn for our first anniversary!!! We highly recommend this venue.

We were looking for a place on the water and near the place we love, Annapolis, MD. HOTB was AMAZING! We arrived by boat on our first visit and met with Beth....after 5 minutes looking at the property we ready to book the venue. My Husband and I couldn't have asked for even more beautiful location to start our next chapter in our lives. We had an evening wedding on June 26, 2010 on the Polynesian Bridal Lawn and the reception was held in the Paradise Ballroom. We had an oyster bar at the reception which was a HUGE hit! HOTB went out of thier way for us and saved the oyster shells. My in-laws live on the water and are using them as part of their landscaping in the back yard. It was an amazing day! We couldn't have chosen a more beautiful place! All of our guests kept complimenting on the food and location. We felt like we were on a private island somewhere. The tropical landscaping is gorgeous and the views of the water is breathtaking. You can't get anything better than this in MD!!! The service was more than we could have asked for. Brittany and Beth were there whenever we needed them and were so fabulous to work with. Top knotch service at Herrington! Thank you again for everything! Our pictures turned out amazing...I would reccomend Herrington to anyone! We are so blessed to have found the place of our dreams to get married. Thank you to everyone involved on making our day so magical! It truely was amazing and perfect!!!!!

Our daughter had a perfect wedding thanks to Ethan Spencer and Brittany Bergendahl. No detail was missed: colored lights in the Bouncy House for the kids, candles placed on each table as requested, guests seated according to plan, delicious buffet items for the adults and special vegetarian and kids meals ( although the kids were having so much fun, they didn't eat much). Ethan gave special attention to the Bride when she needed it before she even had a chance to ask! Herrington weddings are amazing. The Inn is a great place to enjoy as well, and the pool and Mangos are so much fun. Thank you Ethan and Brittany!

My husband and I fell in love with the beauty of Herrington on the Bay the first time we saw it. It was exactly what we wanted. We chose the Polynesian Bridal lawn and the pavilion next to it for our wedding. Sara, the coordinator, was super responsive, extremely organized, and so friendly. I had almost no worries or cares on the day of (normally VERY stressful) because i knew that she and i had gone over every single detail. Krissy did our decorations and they were perfect. She really understood what we wanted and went out of her way to make it work. Brittany was friendly and really knowledgeable. It was a little pricey, but the food was great! All of our guests raved about how good it was. A feat, considering wedding food is usually terrible.

The only complaint I have is that the bar tender was a little rude to some of our guests. He refused to serve them what they asked for and even was unwilling to top off my champagne. I was the bride!

Overall, I would recommend HOB to anyone who wants friendly and responsive people, top notch organization (Sara is amazing!!), and a very beautiful wedding.

We chose the Polynesian Bridal lawn and the pavilion next to it for our wedding. Sara, the coordinator, was super responsive, extremely organized, and so friendly. I had almost no worries or cares on the day of (normally VERY stressful) because i knew that she and i had gone over every single detail. Krissy did our decorations and they were perfect. She really understood what we wanted and went out of her way to make it work. Brittany was friendly and really knowledgeable. It was a little pricey, but the food was great! All of our guests raved about how good it was. A feat, considering wedding food is usually terrible.

The only complaint I have is that the bar tender was a little rude to some of our guests. He refused to serve them what they asked for and even was unwilling to top off my champagne. I was the bride!

Overall, I would recommend HOB to anyone who wants friendly and responsive people, top notch organization (Sara is amazing!!), and a very beautiful wedding. Read less

Herrington on the Bay made planning our wedding reception easy. Our coordinator, Sarah Music, thought of every detail before and during the big day. The weather was horrendous and our ceremony was easily moved inside. Everything was still beautiful despite the torrential rain. I didn't have to worry about a thing.

We couldn't have hoped for more!!!! The venue was absolutely gorgeous!!!! I still can't believe this was in Maryland. What was also amazing is that they were willing to make the ethnic food we requested. Chef Mike did an amazing job of making the staple dishes from my country. Also, Janice, our event designer was really professional, helpful and also nice!! Lastly, Lexy, our day of coordinator really came through and answered our every need. The place is pricey, but we adjusted our guest count accordingly and celebrated with the people who really matter...totally worth it and again it was awesome working with Janice, she knows all there is to know about weddings!

Loved our venue and loved the staff. I had zero worries when it came to the little details of pulling everything together at the venue because I knew Krissy and her staff would handle it. We literally dropped off all of our thing and they set everything up with no problem at all. They made it stress free which is one of the best things a bride could ask for.

The food got great compliments, the view was incredible and everyone was raving at house beautiful everything was.

Krissy and Stacey communicated great with me over the course of our planning, and they really took a lot of the stress off my shoulders because I knew I could trust them to get everything done just as we wanted. They did a fantastic job and I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a spectacular view of the bay and a great team to work with.

I loved this venue. They were so professional and did eveything to make you happy. I loved my day-of wedding planner, I really could not have gotten through the day without her! All of the planners that they provide know everything there is to know about your day and will make you happy even when you are stressed.

It was very expensive and there is so much that goes into it (options) that you need to plan ahead for. They give you many options, but even the least may not be good for someone with a small budget.

Herrington on the Bay was the only place I looked to get married. Their wedding & reception site is absolutely beautiful. They keep up on the flowers and palm trees around the whole place so your pictures turn out nice. Their staff was exepctional the night of our wedding. We were actually ahead of schedule and they managed to have dinner ready early for us. I never once had to worry about anything, it was all handled by their staff. (although you do have to put your decorations/centerpieces up yourself). They help you with the timing of your day and have a phone list of vendors on had for the day of your wedding. My party coordinator did an excellent job. They also give you a list of preferred vendors in the area that have worked with them in the past which was very helpful. The price is worth it!

Herrington Harbour is just stunning. It makes you feel like you are at a vacation resort, but you are still in Maryland. The grounds and landscaping are beautifully maintained and you just can't beat being on the water with sailboats in the background. If you are blessed with a beautiful day like I luckily was, you can't imagine a more idyllic spot to celebrate your wedding. My dad keeps his boat there so I have a special connection to this beautiful place. It is not the most budget-conscious venue to choose (though I did have a sit-down served dinner with wine service for 184 people), but they do have options to make your wedding affordable. I had tons of meetings and email conversations with Michael and Lexy (my wedding coordinator - you are given a complimentary coordinator as part of your package) and they were incredibly helpful and responsive. Lexy was just amazing on my wedding day and orchestrated the whole ceremony and reception flawlessly. I hope you are lucky enough to be assigned to her on your day!

I have to say that overall our experience with Herrington was WONDERFUL!! From our very first meeting with the Sales Coordinator all the way through the reception we have no major complaints. They were able to accomodate our budget and give us everything we'd wanted.

Our Sales coordinator Stacey was very attentive and helpful. She answered all of my kooky bride questions and was so helpful even on the day of the wedding. Stacey went above and beyond her normal duties setting up the aisle makers at the ceremony site and found me BEAUTIFUL replacement cake stand when my rental fell through.

The ceremony site could not have been more breathtakingly beautiful. People who were not able to attend can't believe that we had our wedding locally and asked how we could afford to fly everyone out to Aruba for the wedding.

The Reception Coordinator we were assigned had a last minute family emergency the day before the wedding and as a replacement the catering manager stepped in and performed the duties without missing a beat. All the staff at Herrington were extremely professional and courteous even when wwe were running late. The wait staff even gave me reassurance that I DIDN'T look fat in my reception dress = D.

Everything turned out better than I could have dreamed and thanks in no small part to the Herrington staff. Gold star, A+, 10's across the board!!!!!

We had a beautiful July wedding at HOTB and as other reviews noted, every person that sees the pictures asks us if we had a destination wedding. The summertime landscape is fantastic, the staff is extremely attentive and helpful (especially when I forgot table numbers...yikes!), and your wedding will certainly be memorable. One of the most breathtaking parts of our night was watching fireworks over the bay - quite an impressive display.

We had our ceremony on the Polynesian Bridal Lawn, with the reception following in the Paradise Ballroom. The outdoor venue was beautiful. One small comment, I remembered that they had said the dock would be cleaned the morning of the wedding (seagulls...) but it did not appear to be so. My photographers were able to take care of this in the pictures though, so it was not a big deal in the end.

Ethan was our day of coordinator and he took care of things beautifully. He was not in the main office when I had dropped off our place cards, guest book, cake knives, etc. but most everything looked perfect when I did a quick walk through prior to the ceremony. They were quick to address any comments I had and when I walked in with my new husband for the reception, the tent looked almost magical. Everyone was blown away with all of the details that were taken care of, with the only complaint being that the staff was almost too efficient at clearing the tables and some people lost their cake after only a few bites when they went to go dance.

The bridal party loved that they got to enjoy the appetizers during the cocktail hour, despite being sequestered for photos. It was absolutely wonderful that my husband and I had a personal attendant all night long - bringing fresh drinks and food, even throughout the pictures. We felt like royalty on our big day - and this service was included in their package - not extra like at many other places! They also helped walk us through the entire wedding planning process, with advice on the timing of events, inviting us to a tasting event to sample all of the food, etc. We ended up choosing other vendors based on their relationship with Herrington and we are so pleased that we did.

I tried hard throughout my entire wedding planning process to not worry about things being perfect, and to just roll with everything but I didn't have to worry, because it ended up being perfect for us anyway.

Herrington on the Bay is simply a fabulous wedding venue! Everything about our day was exquisite and an absolute blast! One of our guests said the food was the best catered meal they'd ever had. Our event coordinator made sure everything went smoothly the day of the wedding, which made the day so much less stressful! We only needed to ask and our requests were immediately taken care of. The only area of improvement is that it was somewhat difficult to get a hold of our coordinator through email. I ended up calling the venue instead and was always able to get my question answered by one of the staff members that were available. Overall, I would highly recommend Herrington to any bride- it is a classy, well-run, and simply gorgeous wedding venue!

The Herrington staff were very accommodating, courteous and responsive to our needs and the needs of our out-of-town guests. The bridal garden was gorgeous....I forgot I was in MD, the brunch was yummy....kudos to the chef, and the overall venue is definitely a hidden gem.

Herrington is a great place to get married. They were super accommodating and everything worked out great. It was kind of gross weather outside when on my wedding day and I was going back and forth and Krissy was completely understanding. The one bad thing I would say is the coordinator who was at the actual ceremony site. When she found out we were doing it outside, she said to my husband "These people make me sick" and she was also pretty rude to my mom. Once I knew this stuff, I was too happy and excited about how great the wedding was going to do anything about it.
That is the reason for the 3/5 for professionalism. Even though Krissy and Stacey were fantastic :) That was by far the ONLY problem with Herrington. The food was great, everything ran smoothly, it was an amazing day for me!

They have back up plans in case it rains. The food was delicious, and they were very friendly and flexible with the contract. Definitely a unique place for the area! Read less

Herrington on the Bay is such a beautiful venue there was no other place I could have seen myself getting married. once you visit this venue you will not want to get married anywhere else. The team here did a great job helping me plan everything and recommending vendors. I had NO idea where to even start and their coorindators did a great job of directing me. They are a bit on the expensive side but if you want a beachy outdoor wedding this is the place to go!

Gorgeous location and very friendly and helpful staff. We were married there in September and the weather was perfect-not too hot not too cold! I would suggest having a friend or professional help to keep things on schedule they were a little lax in this area and we missed out on a few things. All in all they were great to work with.

Herrington on the Bay is an incredibly beautiful venue and location with an extraordinary staff working there. Stacey and Brittany helped to make my wedding day perfect from the beginning. Stacey helped us work with our budget, and Brittany was very detail oriented. She was very friendly and responsive to the emails I sent her in the months leading up to my wedding. The food at Herrington is very good, and the chef was always very friendly, feeding us everytime we had a meeting, even it was an unplanned visit! It was a wonderful location to bring together our families from DC, Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania and South Carolina.

My guests did say one of the bartenders was not so friendly, very slow which and made watered down drink which did not help with eh open bar time limit. Additionally, I was slightly disappointed that while taking pictures the VIP service we were suppose to recive was not so VIP and my Wedding Party felt as though the two small plates they brought out was not enough to feed them and got tired of asking for more to be brought out!

In all, these small shortcomings were totally outweighed by all of the wonderful things that Herrington had to offer. Their staff is truly top notch and I would highly recommend them to any bride. As a project manager myself, I am not always easy to please, but they went above and beyond my expectations.

Thank you Stacey, Brittany, and all of the staff at Herrington. We truly appreciated all of your hard work!!

The Good:

Beth is amazing! She was wonderful and very flexible. The grounds are absolutely beautiful (gorgeous views of the harbor and the Chesapeake Bay)! The Yacht Club was just recently renovated and was also stunning. Setting everything up was easy and the welcome reception for tastings and ideas was brilliant. That's where we met Krissy, the event designer, who did all of our flowers. They were fantastic! Chef Tom made sure our food was catered to my family and our vision for the wedding and it was so good. Adria was always around the day of and was able to ask us if we needed anything. The rehearsal dinner was held at the Pavilion, and we loved the close proximity to the rehearsal site. The dinner was excellent and plentiful!

The Bad:

I hate to say anything bad when we had such a wonderful day. The rehearsal dinner site was originally at Calypso Bay. When I called about a month before to inquire about when to drop off, the restaurant was not able to perform that plan because of renovations and neglected to check with us or let us know the restaurant would be closed, and this wasn't the only time things weren't checked to make sure they would be ok. They went out of their way and gave us huge discounts to let us be in the Pavilion on site. They made it up to us!

My father would like me to add a quick word about Tammie, the accountant. She was unpleasant and made him feel unwelcome for using a payment plan that had a large fee every month. The accounting and the staff didn't communicate about payments, so it was very stressful for my father. As I didn't personally work with her, I can't comment, but I agree that more communication is needed.

Overall: It was the most wonderful day! It was worth it to have our wedding there. I have to take some points off for the added stress leading up to the day, but in the end, I don't regret choosing HOTB. I loved every minute of our wedding. I recommend HOTB for any bride looking for a fantastic day.

Herrington on the Bay is a gorgeous setting to have your wedding or special event. The facilities are clean, the food is delicious, staff are super friendly and responsive. When it threatened to rain on our outdoor ceremony, they were flexible right up until the last minute as to whether it should be moved under the tent. Overall, we loved our wedding day and the setting is just so so so beautiful! My one complaint is that with the amount that Herrington charges for alcohol per person, I would have expected better wines and champagne (the "champagne" was a cheap super-sweet spumante). We ended up paying out the nose for an extra case of red wine and a case of champagne.
Also, logistically, brides should be forewarned Herrington is extremely difficult to plan for your out of town guests. We had 200 people with 2/3 staying in Annapolis, about 25 minutes away. Try to find a bus company that knows the area and is actually reliable! Ha! There are limited rooms at the Inn at Herrington Harbor, so be forewarned that some of your close family will not be able to stay on site. I know it doesn't sound like a big deal, but accommodations and transportation were our two biggest headaches.

I got married there just for the venue, the place is lovely, and the view is spectacular! As soon as I saw it, I knew this was were I wanted to get married. And it was a beautiful ceremony and reception. The only thing I did not like was the food, very average but you have to use their caterers. Also, I wanted a specific chicken served at the dinner and they served a totally different type of chicken dish. But all else was great. I only wish they would allow you to have a recpetion that lasts more than 4 hours!

When we first signed up with Herrington (HOTB), the Event Design Manager was Stacey Hill. She was terrific. Unfortunately, she moved away before our wedding.

Our "day-of coordinator" was Lexy Harvey. Our first red flag w/ Lexy came in April when we needed to meet with her for planning. She told us that her only availability was Monday, Tuesday, & Thursday, from 9am-5pm. No availability on evenings or weekends. (In contrast to Stacey who would work with OUR schedule.) Since we live in Virginia, & have jobs, taking time off from work to have a short meeting w/ Lexy, to accommodate her schedule, was not an option. In contrast, Stacey was available via phone or email, 24/7. This new crew only works “their scheduled hours”. If you try to call or email them outside of those hours, you will get an out of office message that says they won’t be in touch until “their shift” starts again. If you think a wedding venue and their coordinators should be available more than “9-5”, then keep this in mind when considering HOTB.

On the day of the wedding, we didn't see Lexy until AFTER our ceremony. Even then, we only saw her a couple of times during dinner, & that was it. Adria, another coordinator, was present at the ceremony site, but didn't have a clue what was going on. I asked her where I should stand before the ceremony and Adria said "I don't know." She later asked me if we had a flower girl, & I told her no. She asked who was supposed to put the rose petals down, and I said “You are.” She then replied, “oh”, & ran over to the ceremony site to lay them on the ground. Finally, the bus was supposed to pick up my bride at her Inn room. It went to the wrong location so she had to walk over to the ceremony site in her dress.

In conclusion, we’d only recommend HOTB if you have your own Wedding Planner. If not, there are plenty of other venues on the bay that are just as beautiful, but with superior service, which will ultimately mean a better event for you & less stress.

Herrington was a beautiful place to get married. The servers were excellent. The only problems we had was the organization of the event. They didn't help with anything other than food and beverage. Most of the other set up (decorations, table numbers, and place cards) had to be done by us. For what we paid to rent I think that decorations and all set up should have been included. Also, they had no rooms for the bride and groom to get ready in. You had to rent a room at the nearby hotel. That was difficult because we lived an hour and a half away from the site.

We had a beautiful buffet set up on the deck overlooking the yachts. We had servers behind every station to greet the guests and serve the food into their plates. The food was delicious, I remember the chicken being just the right kind of juicy. For the hors d'ouvres we had cheese and spinach quiches and fiesta rolls and wanted the quiches to be butler-passed while the rolls displayed on a table. Instead someone told me (we missed the entire cocktail hour taking pics!) that both were buttler-passed, so they didn't do it to my exact specifications but I think it worked out well at the end. I can only imagine that it made it look even more elegant. It looks like everyone drooled over the quiches.

There were some things that we wish our event coordinator and his team had handled better and they did mess up several of my specifications, including a very important one: they served beer and wine even though i asked for full bar! I don't know how they could've made such a mistake, during the planning we even specified that the staff would check with me whether I wanted to increase the tab or not.

The venue is absolutely gorgeous and that's the reaso we went with Herrington. When we first signed our contract everyone was very friendly and helpful and very responsive to emails, which is great. However, once it got closer to the wedding, it was very difficult to communicate with them. Emails would get responded to 3 days later. I was very disappointed in the fact that my wedding coordinator was not at my rehearsal. I had no idea what to do, where to stand or when to be ready. On my wedding day, which started at 5pm...no one came to get me in the bridal suite. It was about 5:05 and I had to send someone to ask what I was supposed to do next....I finally just came out of the suite and started walking. I felt like there was no direction at all. It did not make my already stressful day run smoothly at all. I would recommend this venue on the fact that it is absolutely gorgeous, but they need to step up their game plan.
