Happily Ever After Begins in Talbot County

Maryland’s Eastern Shore ranks as one of the country’s top wedding destinations, and Talbot County sits at the epicenter of this trend. The county is blessed with stunning wedding venues, from waterfront estates to historic inns, and there are enough vacation rentals to accommodate any wedding party and any budget. You can be as relaxed or adventurous as you want, and when your Big Day rolls around, you will tie the knot in style.

Whether you’re looking for a stately soiree, an island vibe or an intimate, romantic affair, Talbot County has you covered.

Get married in a historic church, on a wide stretch of waterfront, in a stunning courtyard or under a magnificent tree — it’s all here, where we also welcome couples renewing their vows and same-sex marriage is legal. From a party of five to a party of 500, we have no shortage of beautiful indoor and outdoor settings for your big day.

If one day isn’t enough, join us for the weekend — even a long one at that. Spend your wedding night here, then kickoff your honeymoon with a little staycation in one of our adorable towns, fit for newlyweds. Better yet, host a weekend-long celebration with your friends and family — we’ve got plenty of room.

Start the weekend with a welcome reception and a cocktail sunset sail or cruise aboard one of our many charter boats. Friday, the bridal party may head to one of our luxurious spas for a girls’ day out, while the groom and his men hit the links for a pre-wedding round at one of our renowned courses.

On Friday night, enjoy a crab feast at one of our local seafood dives, or a gourmet meal at one of our award-winning fine dining restaurants, all perfect for a rehearsal dinner to remember. Have a special location in mind? We also have a collection of top-notch caterers on hand.

Saturday, say your “I dos” at any one of our fabulous venues, and that night, retreat to a romantic oasis, sip champagne, sneak a few leftovers in your suite and enjoy your first evening as newlyweds — the perfect way to end a night of laughter, love and dancing.

Sunday morning, join your friends and family for a brunch on the water before you’re whisked away for your honeymoon, be it in Talbot County, elsewhere in the U.S. or at an international destination — there are four major airports fewer than two hours away (BWI, IAD, DCA, and PHL).

In addition to gorgeous views, Talbot County is home to some of the wedding industry’s most trusted and acclaimed professionals. From photographers to florists, caterers to calligraphers, planners, cosmetologists and musicians, we’re a one-stop shop with vendors ready and able to make your day the one you’ve dreamed of.
