Why Havre de Grace?


Imagine… one town that offers just about everything you need for an ideal wedding day. We have multiple beautiful wedding reception venues, lodging, florists, officiants, hair and make-up salons, rehearsal dinner spots, wedding planning, bridal gowns, all within minutes, usually within steps of each other! An unsurpassed level of convenience and choices at your fingertips!


Planes, Trains and Automobiles! Now imagine that town is just minutes away from Baltimore and very close to Washington DC and Philadelphia. We’re not only close, but also EASY to get to, no matter the mode of transportation your guests will take to help you celebrate your big day. We are a 10 minute drive to the local train station (serviced by Amtrak and MARC), only 1 hour from TWO international airports and, literally, just minutes off I-95. Havre de Grace is a quaint and historic waterfront town with gift shops and antique malls peppered with some amazing restaurants, wine bars and pubs on and off the water along with a wonderful waterfront promenade to stroll, several museums to explore, even a winery!

Unique and diverse choices for your wedding planning

From the casual rehearsal dinner in the local waterfront park to the historic country inn reception to the many elegant waterfront venues, Havre de Grace provides a robust and amazing selection of wedding venues for every taste and budget. And for those of you who would prefer a country farm wedding, we have a farm venue that is equally amazing.

But choices don’t stop there. Activities for your guests and bridal party on and off the water range from boating, kayaking, golfing, to yoga, wine tastings, shopping and dining - and that’s just the beginning!

Over 400 weddings a year are celebrated in Havre de Grace, here's why...

Perhaps it's having so many amazing Wedding Venues to choose from.

Or maybe it's the city's iconic views around every corner. 

It could be having so many bridal party and guest activities to choose from.

And how about all those beautiful backdrops for your wedding ceremony?

Maybe it is the ease of getting here and finding places for guests to stay.

And so many choices of all our delicious Caterers, Bakers, and Dessert Makers.
