Mention wedding planning and certainly the option of a destination wedding crosses most bride and groom’s minds. However, living in Maryland gives you the best of both worlds – all the beauty and ambience of a destination wedding without the expense or inconvenience for your guests to travel.
At Catering by Uptown, we have several bayfront wedding venues on the beautiful Chesapeake Bay, including the Anchor Inn and Celebrations at the Bay. The key to any waterfront wedding venue is flexibility. Are there indoor as well as outdoor ceremony options? Are the indoor reception areas climate controlled? Is there contingency solutions for inclement weather? If a venue meets that kind of flexibility, then a waterfront wedding can give you all the same amenities as a city venue, plus the added beauty of having nature set the stage.
Another consideration for a waterfront wedding might be seasonal. Again, if the venue is climate controlled then this isn’t a large factor. It really is a perfect year-round option. We’ve done beautiful winter weddings on the waterfront, and we’ve kept guests completely comfortable in the middle of August.
If you’re thinking about a waterfront wedding in Maryland, then please contact us to schedule a tour at one of our facilities. We’re looking forward to meeting you soon!
