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. ... Read more 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.
