Absolutely Amazing Day

This is the location my now husband and I met on our first blind date, so we only thought we should finish our circle and get married here! It had everything we both wanted. An outdoor garden for our ceremony which was also next to the water and an indoor (protected from the weather) backup option and reception location! When booking this location, it's the town you are booking-the venue, the small and quaint B&Bs, the cafes and restaurants. The wedding turned into a weekend of amazing memories. From our first meeting to the big day, Eddie was easy to work with, had an amazing calm yet humorous manner and was a great addition to planning our day (we also had him officiate). Each visit more and more fell into place and by our last visit we felt organized and prepared for our big day! The staff made sure everything was set up the way I envisioned it and I can honestly say I have no complaints or anything I would go back and change! I enjoyed every single minute of the day!
The location is beautiful!
The food was to die for!
Eddie is hilarious!
The staff was kind and attentive!
You won't be let down having your wedding here!

Such a pretty venue!

My husband and I fell in love with Chesapeake Inn when we first went to visit it. The scenery is so pretty with the water and boats, and the ballroom looked gorgeous! Eddie was our wedding coordinator there, and he was amazing! He always was quick to respond to our emails. Our wedding was the best night of my life. Everything ran smoothly, and we have nothing but good things to say about Chesapeake Inn. The food was amazing. The atmosphere was so fun. The prices were very reasonable for all you get. Definitely check them out!

Just Perfect

I was a covid bride, so my husband and I celebrated our wedding reception this year! Let me tell you...I am a perfectionist and Chespeake Inn was PHENOMENAL!! Eddie was very easy to contact. Our guests loved the venue! The food was AMAZING. It was the best wedding food I have ever tasted. The staff were so pleasant and down-to-earth! My husband and I already decided to book a baby shower with them when the time comes!!

When you first walk into the ballroom at the Chesapeake Inn you will be overwhelmed by the beauty. However, that is just the beginning. The real beauty is behind the scenes. From the 1st conversation with either Eddie or Shannon you will quickly realize that your special day will become truly amazing simply by putting your trust & vision in their hands. My company has done well over 100+ weddings in their Ballroom and no matter the curve ball thrown, not once was their staff unprepared to knock it out of the park. It isn't just the Ballroom, It isn't just the the staff and it isn't just the food. It is the fact they they deliver on all three and more. You are in good hands with Eddie, Shannon and the entire team at THE CHESAPEAKE INN. D & J DJ Service Don Timlin - Owner
