Book Your Wedding with Swan Point Yacht and Country Club


About Us

Located in Issue, Maryland just a short drive from Washington, DC and northern Virginia, the beautiful, tranquil natural surroundings of the Swan Point Yacht and Country Club offer couples the opportunity for an elegant ceremony and reception away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. Start off with a picture-perfect outdoor ceremony set against a beautiful waterfront backdrop and onto the stylish ballroom for a fine dining reception with mouth-watering local cuisine.

Majestic magnolia trees and the manicured lawns of the Carolina-style golf course surround the beautiful club house building, built overlooking the banks of the Potomac River. Numerous scenic locations are scattered across the property, offering some truly fantastic first-look photo opportunities. For couples who wish to hold both their ceremony and reception on site, the following spaces are available for your use.

Your event begins at the scenic creek side ceremony site, where you exchange vows under a beautiful white wooden pergola, surrounded by tall trees and lush green lawns with the water at your back.

Once the couple is finally wed, guests make their way back to the clubhouse, where the main reception is held in the spacious, elegantly appointed ballroom. Vintage chandeliers, textured ceilings and a large dance floor complete the setting.

An open-air veranda surrounded by flowers and overlooking the river awaits your guests, where they can mingle while sipping on delicious hand-crafted cocktails while waiting for the bride and groom to finish with the wedding photos, or for sneaking away for a breath of fresh air during the reception.

Food and drinks were great, and at a lower price than in DC. A really, really great value and a perfect spot to tie the knot!
