    Jaszmine & Devon's Wedding

    I fell in love with this venue the moment I stepped into the ballroom. Eddie was extremely helpful. I'm so grateful for him. The staff were awesome. They brought us our plates and continuously checked to make sure we didnt need anything. We were treated like royalty. The lights in the ballroom matched our wedding colors perfectly. We got married at the moon property by the water. I strongly recommend getting the house right there overnight to make the transition smoother. Anyone who books this venue will not be disappointed. I couldnt have asked for a better venue. Thank you Eddie for everything.

    My husband and I got married at Chesapeake Inn in August. I really don’t have the words for how wonderful the people here are or how beautiful our wedding was. Planning a wedding during COVID was less than ideal, but Eddie and crew made the whole process an incredible, easy experience.

    Eddie was accessible, responded quickly, and anticipated our needs before we did! He was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend the Inn!

    We also had several guests attend our wedding by boat. Clem, is easily the best dock master on the bay. He’s hard working, organized, and incredibly helpful - routinely visiting guests throughout the weekend to see if they needed anything.

    Overall, the day went seamlessly, the staff was amazing, the food was delicious and talked about for weeks after. Many of our guests told us it was the best wedding they’d been to.

    Thank you Eddie, Clem, and staff for an unforgettable weekend!

    One of the finest venues in the Delaware/Maryland area for weddings and ceremonies. Very professional and accommodating to work with . Make sure to ask for Eddie Greer when booking your event. Please tell them Ted Bojarski - DJ Ted Rock highly recommended the Chesapeake Inn.

  • D & J DJ Service Wedding DJs

    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
