Coastal dreams will be made at this elegant wedding in Chesapeake Bay, Maryland. There is something so comforting in an all-inclusive wedding. Because planning a big day can be stressful. There are lots of decisions to be made, so many vendors to organize, and they may all be located in different places. But when you go all-inclusive, that stress is lifted off your shoulders. Everything is in one place, you’re probably only dealing with one person and if there’s an open bar, everyone’s happy! But when choosing this type of venue, you want someone with the experience, and knowledge to fulfill your wishes. And I know just the place, the Celebrations at the Bay Wedding Venue in Pasadena, Maryland.
Celebrations at the Bay are experts in the art of all-inclusive weddings, and they have been planning them for over 30 years. Their pretty, coastal destination wedding venue is situated on the picturesque Chesapeake Bay, in Pasadena, and offers incredible waterfront views. They have the kind of natural backdrops us New Jersey wedding photographers would bite our arm off to shoot our couples against! It’s truly stunning, honestly, and I have had the pleasure of photographing many clients at this wonderful venue.
This coastal wedding venue can host up to 500 wedding guests, within a choice of two fabulous event spaces. And your guests will be able to freely enjoy the wondrous nature all around them, with an outdoor option available too. The Tented Vista Ballroom is a grand, climate-controlled tent that opens out onto the Chesapeake Bay, and offers a unique ceremony space overlooking the water. The ballroom tent itself can hold up to 300 guests and offers so many combinations for your ceremony, cocktails, and reception dining.
Besides the wonderful location, what makes the Celebrations at the Bay Wedding Venue so special is their level of service. They always aim to exceed the expectations of their couples, and I’ve seen first-hand how they go above and beyond in order to please their clients. Its those small details, and consistent quality have made this wedding venue a landmark destination for couples from New York to Virginia, and everywhere in-between.
But if you’re not planning on throwing a large wedding, and you’re hoping to plan a smaller occasion. Celebrations at the Bay boast a stunning micro-wedding venue, that can host up to 75 guests comfortably. The Knollview House benefits from a beautiful deck space overlooking the bay, which is perfect for cocktail hour. And is also surrounded by a lovely, manicured lawn, the perfect setting for your outdoor ceremony. As with all of their event spaces, Knollview House can be customized and configured to suit your ideal big day setup.
If you’re looking for something in between, space-wise. Then the Chesapeake Ballroom is an excellent choice, and actually my favorite option! It offers delightful indoor and outdoor spaces, both of which utilize the incredibly stunning natural backdrop they’ve been blessed with. Outdoors you’ll find a pavilion and a pier that both overlook the bay, and make the perfect place to exchange your vows. While inside, the ballroom is bathed in light via floor-to-ceiling windows, which look out across the water. The Chesapeake Ballroom can host up to 150 guests, and again offers many ceremonies, cocktail, and dining configurations.
Once you’ve chosen the right wedding venue at Celebrations at the Bay, it’s time to think about your reception dinner! But you won’t have to contemplate long because the excellent Celebrations team will know exactly what’s needed, and will suggest the best option for you. And don’t forget, it’s all-inclusive! Your personal wedding planner will guide you through their tantalizing food choices from around the world, set your tables in the finest linens, and help you select the prettiest centerpieces. They’ll be with you every step of the way, making sure they’ve gotten each little detail of your big day, perfect.
