Everything was amazing. The employees were easy to contact and were timely on emails throughout the planning process. The views were priceless and were captured beautifully in the photos. The tent was decorated nicely as well.

My husband and I were just married at Herrington On the Bay on May 30, 2015. We had a two year engagement and Herrington gratefully worked with us on all the planning. From table linens to decorations to cake setting- they were exceptional with helping plan our wedding. Our... Read More wedding planners were Krista Kuechler and Brittany Bergendahl- who were extraordinary at details in our wedding. It was very tough planning a wedding without my mother- who had passed away in 1997 from colon cancer- but Krista and Brittany put me at ease. When the day finally came, everything was perfect! I want to go back and do it all over again-in fact. From the reception to our own private servers, I have to tell you Herrington On the Bay was absolutely magical. I loved every minute of our wedding and would highly recommend anyone plannng a wedding to go straight to Herrington on the Bay for their dream wedding!

This venue is hands down THE most gorgeous place you will find in the area. The tropical gardens, palm trees, and waterfront setting make you feel like you are at a destination retreat, rather than a half hour from Annapolis. The staff, execution of special requests, catering,... Read More bar service, and decorations all were above and beyond my expectations. I cannot recommend this wonderful venue emphatically enough.

Ceremony Site & Reception Venue Review for Herrington On The Bay

Reviewed on 8/03/2015 Christine H

My husband and I got married at the Herring Garden and had our reception at the Yacht Club at Herrington On The Bay in June 2015. It was the first site visit we had and nothing really compared to it when we went on other site visits. The moment we drove up and saw the... Read More background of the Chesapeake Bay, we knew it was exactly what we were looking for. They were very welcoming and friendly and immediately made you feel like family. Janice walked us thru all the in's and out's of what was included and Tom gave us a small taste testing of food. The food was impressive and left us wanting to taste more options. Actually, a lot of what we tasted that day is what we picked for our reception and cocktail hour. Throughout the next 8 months, we were introduced to Krista, who was going to be our wedding coordinator. She was attentive and responded to our emails and phone calls within 24 hours, if not immediately. Every detail was discussed in detail with both Janice and Krista and they both made this process really easy and stress free for us. With the ceremony site being brand new, they took the extra effort to replace some of the sod that had just been laid down earlier that month because the heat and people walking on it had made it turn brown. They didn't want our guest walking on dead grass. They assured me everything would be taken care of by the day of the wedding and it was. We had our rehearsal dinner in the yacht club and everything was beautiful. The day we got married was a pretty hot and humid day. They had water for our guests as well as a large fan that spritz water. While we had planned to have the wedding party eat their appetizers and drinks outside during pictures, I asked that we take it inside because of the heat. There was no issue and they quickly transitioned everything back into the Yacht Club. After the wedding, we asked our guests what they though of everything and everyone was nothing but complimentary. They had a great time and we received lots of compliments on the food. Our recommendations is to make sure to try the bacon wrapped scallops. Also leave more than an hours worth of time for pictures after the ceremony. There are many landscape opportunities for pictures. Some things to look out for would be to make sure they don't put the ice water in the glasses to early for reception. The linen costs are not included in the fee as they are in some other venues. Also, be prepared to not have many options for where the guests to stay. Their onsite rooms are not reserved for weddings and were not available for our wedding at all to reserve. The next closest option was 2.5 miles away, which is the only other hotel relatively close. Once they find out you aren't having your wedding there, they will immediately cut your block in half. So be prepared for your guests to stay at least 30 min away from Herrington. But Herrington does have a shuttle and that was a life saver for us. We ended up renting the biggest house in North Beach for both sides of our wedding party. The shuttle went back and forth from the house and save us a lot of stress coordinating rides. My husband and I would highly recommend having a wedding here. The employees are fantastic and service was perfect. They make it easy to get married.

My husband and I fell in love with this venue as soon as we saw it. We chose the Polynesian Lawn and Paradise Ballroom for our wedding.

We worked with Janice and Adria for both the wedding and rehearsal dinner. All of our guests were so complimentary on how gorgeous the spaces were and also how delicious the food was!

Most of our family and friends stayed at the Inn at Herrington Harbour. It was so nice to have everyone stay on the same property and not have to worry about guests drinking and driving. The rooms at the Inn are very nice and the Suites were perfect to get ready in. We had an amazing wedding day and are so happy we chose Herrington on the Bay to be our venue.

It was really important for me to get married overlooking the water, so that was our main goal when we went in search of venues.

I always looked forward to talking to Janice, our event planner, and making trips to the venue (they always feed you!!) I have a wheat allergy and was very concerned about being able to eat at my wedding without worrying about getting sick. HOTB is absolutely amazing when it comes to this. I couldn't have asked for anything more. I had a special meal prepared and their Chef Tom makes the most wonderful gluten free breads. He even made me a gluten free crab cake!! AMAZING!! Our wedding coordinator, Ethan, made sure everything went smoothly on the day of the wedding. We didn't have to worry about anything and it was so nice. The staff is spectacular, the food is amazing (my guests keep raving about it), and you can't beat the views. I wouldn't change a thing if I could do it all over again!

It truly feels like a little community with everything all-included, from the ceremony and reception site to the quaint Inn and even the restaurant/bar at Mangos. The Inn is perfect and unique in that it's not like every other hotel but instead villa-like rooms (or spectacular suites) that open up to a pretty courtyard area and all in view of the beach! You will not be disappointed.
