    Brittland was the PERFECT venue for our wedding. I know I'm biased as the bride, but it was truly outstanding. We had always envisioned an outdoor wedding with the ceremony on the water and a tented reception. We wanted our wedding to be a weekend event with all of our closest friends and family staying together or as close as possible. We visited a few different venues on the Eastern Shore, but ultimately saved the best for last. The moment we arrived at Brittland Manor we both knew it was the one, it had everything we wanted – water views, outdoor cocktail hour and reception space, the ability to fit both of our immediate families and all of the bridal party in the main house and river lodge, and not to mention the grounds were beautiful. It was exactly what we had dreamed of. We hosted all our events on site from the rehearsal dinner by the River Lodge, ceremony on the grass by the water, cocktail hour by the pool and garden, and the reception on the brick patio behind the Manor house. It was truly the most beautiful setting for a wedding. All of our guests were blown away by the venue.

    We can’t thank Natalie and Rusty enough! Natalie was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. She let us get in the house a day earlier so we could get settled and set everything up before the bridal party began arriving Friday morning. The house has everything you could need – linens, towels, large coffee maker, and lots and lots of room. Rusty takes amazing care of the grounds – the gardens and lawns were impeccable. Having your wedding at Brittland is more than just an event, it's a one-of-a-kind full weekend experience. We can’t recommend it enough!

Brittland Estates is a gorgeous location!!! I love that it completely transforms for the couples that choose to have their weddings there!! It can be dressed up to be swanky elegant or dressed down to be DIY fabulous!! It is a great option for an Eastern Shore destination because guests can stay on the property for the whole weekend!! It has all the elements that photographers dream about - Gorgeous Interiors, great light, waterfront location, corn fields, romantic old trees, a historic building, and a place where guests will always feel welcome and at home. I look forward to more weddings there in the future !
