We had out wedding at Kent Manor on 10/11/15. We chose the venue more out of fate, but also based on their reviews in 2013, and believe it was worth it. Our boss found this venue before we were engaged, and we met at work. Let's just say the cards fell into place for us. Ashley worked with us for 2 years to plan our perfect wedding. Towards the end we had so many changes with Guest List, Ashley was very accommodating. Tounley (sp?) was awesome the day of! I was a DIY bride and she put all my hard work for 2.5 yrs (long engagement :) ) and built my dream wedding. As my dad said, I had been planning it for 27 years, and she made it a dream come true for me. The day of was a circus and the one thing I didn't have to worry about was wedding planning. She took care of every need. We had a cake snafoo where someone knocked our toss bouquet into the cake. Let's just say the cake was worth way more than the flowers. When she found out about it, she adjusted the cake so no one would see, took it away, fixed it herself, and it reappeared at the cake table in time for our cutting. Pure amazing! I also had a bad stomach ache (part nerves part bad rehearsal dinner choices) and she brought gingerale to my and new husband when I was getting fresh air. She was so attentive to details, it made the entire day perfect. I probably should mention the food. You should book this place, first for the food! I wish our tasting, cocktail hour, and dinner was longer with more courses. It was delicious, flavorful, and not a dry piece of meat. Did I mention most guests plates were empty when it came time for cleanup? Except for mine since there was no room in my dress to fit more food. If you want a perfect wedding on the Eastern Shore, especially in the fall, book Kent Manor!
My daughter married at the Historic Kent Manor Inn on 10/09/2015. I have to say it was one of the most wonderful experiences ever. Ashley and the entire staff at Kent Manor were ever so accommodating in every way. Ashley took care of everything for us and not once did my daughter get stressed as she knew she was in good hands with an amazing professional. Every guest at the wedding raved about the food and service as I received many messages the next day as to what a great time they had. There is no way we could have pulled this off without Ashley's expertise. Thank Ashley and to all who made my daughters special day more than she ever hoped for.
THIS WEDDING WAS ONE OF THE BEST THAT I HAVE BEEN TO!!! SO BEAUTIFUL!!!
We got married at Kent Manor on Sept. 26, and it was absolutely perfect. The staff at Kent Manor goes above and beyond to accommodate you and make you feel at ease. No detail is too small and no ask is too big. Ashley does a fantastic job of making you feel calm and at ease on the day of your wedding. She and her staff take care of all the setup -- everything from pictures to signs to seating charts -- and never once did I worry something was going to go wrong. They are on top of everything.
The food is also outstanding. We had several guests tell us it was the best wedding food they have ever had, and people were still talking about it weeks after. The bar was well stocked and the bartenders and other staff were happy to do whatever was needed to ensure all the guests were enjoying themselves, which has not always been the case at other weddings we have attended.
The grounds and Garden House are well maintained and the pictures from our ceremony are just beautiful. We also filled the entire inn full of our guests, and Kent Manor made sure each one was accommodated -- including switching rooms up to the day of for older guests who couldn't do stairs.
I really wanted a small wedding venue where you were the priority, and that was exactly what I got. The staff at Kent Manor made our day perfect and stress free and I highly recommend it.
We couldn't have been happier or better taken care of than with Kent Manor. What a beautiful, perfect wedding venue, with amazing, caring, creative, organized staff. Everyone there helped us make our day so special, and all of our guests complimented how beautiful the setting was, how great the food was, and how impressed they were with everything. We particularly loved having a team member to help us the day of the wedding, keeping us organized and on time. We enjoyed the reception food tasting earlier that year, where we were able to work with the chef to customize our wedding meal. We also loved that so many of our guests could stay at the inn and truly make a weekend of the wedding. I would recommend gorgeous Historic Kent Manor Inn to anyone.
We had our ceremony and reception at Kent Manor April 18. It is a beautiful venue with amazing staff. I worked with Ashley during booking and she was there the day of the wedding overseeing everything. It was perfect. I could not have asked for better service, food or overall professionalism. I have had people call me and say they had never been to another wedding that was as beautiful. The grounds are gorgeous and is just a romantic place for a wedding.
We also did brunch for everyone that spent the night and people raved about the food. I actually had to of my friends husbands say they were never leaving there:)
Ashley and the entire team at Kent Manor were simply wonderful. They made our special day stress-free. The food is FANTASTIC, the scenery beautiful, and the atmosphere intimate. What more could you ask for?
I highly recommend choosing Kent Manor for your wedding venue. There are so many beautiful places to get married on Kent Island, but the thing that sets Kent Manor apart (besides the comfy Inn setting, the scenic view, and the charming grounds) is the service and attention you'll receive throughout the process. Ashley is fantastic to work with. She'll help create the perfect (and insanely delicious) menu for your guests (including dealing flawlessly with a gluten-free bride and a vegetarian mother-of-the-bride). Tia, also, was INVALUABLE to have as our go-to point person from day one. She is incredibly organized, detail-oriented, and genuinely cares. I am insanely detail-oriented, and Tia was so patient, kind, fun, and easy to work with. I don't exaggerate when I say that she made sure every detail was taken care of, and she did it all with a smile on her face. I couldn't be happier with our choice of Kent Manor.
This was the perfect spot for our wedding. It is on the water with a beautiful pier. The garden house was the right size for our wedding. The food was amazing and the staff was very nice. What a great time.
I would just like to thank Ashley and Danielle for their help in making our wedding day perfect! The entire staff at Kent Manor was a pleasure to work with and I can not say enough good things about everyone! We also held our rehearsal dinner there the day before the wedding and a private Sunday brunch after the wedding as we had many people stay overnight. The food was amazing, all of our requests were met and the staff just handled everything. Danielle made sure the wedding day was absolutely perfect and if there was ever an issue, I never knew about it. Ashley worked with us and our budget and along with the chef was able to give us what we wanted and it was reasonable compared to many other venues we worked with. We had a small wedding and some venues would not even speak to us because they had high minimums, etc, but Kent Manor treated us as if we has a guest count of 300! Kent Manor was the perfect choice for our wedding. It was very intimate, personable, and beautiful! Can not wait to return to another Sunday brunch in the near future! Thank you again!!
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!! A lovely inn on the water with a beautiful reception facility. The food was outstanding and service was great. We worked with Ashley who walked us through all of the arrangements. They offered a tasting session to select appetizers and meals. The bridal suite is included for the night.'
Check them out - you won't go wrong!
Kent Manor is a wonderful, beautiful place for any wedding or event. Ashley and Danielle were very responsive during the whole process. It could not have been a better place or day for our wedding.
I attended the wedding as a guest of the bride's family; Mother of the Bride is my best friend. The Inn was selected based on my recommendation. It is always a bit stressful when making a recommendation; hoping that everything is going to be as wonderful as I said it would be. The Inn provided the service that made me so very proud!
From the get go with the planning process that involved working with my friend's budget to the day of the wedding; all proceeded without a hint of stress.
The banquet was delicious and the service splendid.
I also want to mention that they are in the final phase of construction of an incredible new venue. They call it The Preserve. This new structure (on the grounds of the estate) as I was told is almost 8000 sq. ft. and seat up to 600 people. Wow....what a wedding that would be!
Kent Manor Inn is not only beautiful and historic, it now has a special place in our hearts! Our daughter's wedding was perfect because of the amazing planning services of Ashley and Danielle! From the very beginning (engagement 14 months prior), they made us feel as if our daughter's wedding would be everything we envisioned and more. Their attention to the smallest of details was ongoing...we highly recommend this beautiful setting for any special event!
First and foremost, I want to thank Ashley, Danielle and the rest of the wonderful Kent Manor staff for their TREMENDOUS, continuous help with planning and coordinating our wedding, from beginning to end.
My husband and I had seen nearly 10 venues in the DC area before we made our way across the Bay Bridge to Kent Manor. We had spent our first Valentine's Day there three years prior, and when we visited Kent Manor again, I just knew we'd have to get married there. The venue is wonderfully maintained; the waterfront location is quaint and intimate; and the garden house provided the most romantic setting for our wedding reception. After looking through other venues' contracts and packages, we were also very grateful that Kent Manor was so accommodating and willing to work with us on personalizing our menus, etc.
Despite the rain on the morning of our wedding, Kent Manor worked seamlessly to move our outdoor ceremony indoors and the rest of the day went so smoothly! It's been nearly three months since the wedding and our guests still rave about how delicious the food was, and how great and accommodating the staff and rooms were at Kent Manor. Friends and family also loved taking photos on the venue's spacious, beautiful grounds at sunset.
The great thing about Kent Manor is their staff - everyone was always so helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable, as well as patient. My husband and I are so grateful and happy that we decided to get married at Kent Manor - it was such a wonderful experience and day to remember, and we know we will be back to celebrate our anniversary often in the future!
Fantastic experience! Gorgeous place, wonderful food and amazing customer service. I could not have asked for a better place to have my wedding.
