3 Things to Consider When Planning an Outdoor Wedding


1. Choose the Perfect Venue

The first step to planning an outdoor wedding begins with deciding on a gorgeous venue. Luckily, the Eastern Shore opens the door to so many beautiful options. The combination of flourishing forestry and the serene marshland of the Chesapeake Bay area come together to create breathtaking scenes for your special day.

Take advantage of the natural landscape at any of our onsite venues. The Pergola Garden is overflowing with budding flowers and sits next to a tranquil pond. Hold the ceremony on our dock as the sun sets across the glassy creek, or select our rustic Crytal Barn decorated with three glistening chandeliers for an elegant indoor/outdoor event. No matter what you choose, you’re sure to find a unique and setting to help create everlasting memories.


2. Delectable Food & Drink

An Eastern Shore wedding wouldn’t be complete without local cuisine. Cater your wedding with Herb Garden Kitchen, a company owned by the innkeepers themselves that specializes in putting twists on traditional Eastern Shore favorites. Inquire about their services to indulge in delicious homemade dishes in the form of a formal sit-down dinner or buffet. Other local restaurants, such as Pearl on Main, are also available to cater your event.

The inn also partners with a local establishment, Java Rock, for unique drink options. Choose from a selection of boutique wines and local craft beers that compliment the cuisine perfectly. They offer three wine flight packages so you can pick the best one for your taste or your budget.


3. Wedding Activities

Continue planning your outdoor wedding on the Eastern Shore by treating your party to various activities in the area. Extend your immersion into nature with a gorgeous sailboat ride with Blue Crab Charters, or take advantage of our onsite amenities like our walking paths and pool. For the ultimate indulgence, book a deluxe Spa Package that’s sure to relax your nerves before your big day!
