    Running Hare is the most gorgeous venue!

    Running Hare is so beautiful and I highly recommend this venue. My husband and I could not have imagined a more picturesque setting to get married in. My favorite spot at the venue is the garden tunnel where we did our first look because it is the most idyllic location. The Tuscan Events Center is huge and spacious, and all of the French doors open to the portico area so it is the perfect indoor/outdoor venue. My only negative thing to say is that when I was planning my wedding they did not have a hired wedding coordinator. The owner and GM were very responsive to all of my emails and still helped with my questions, but I didn’t know if I was going to have a day of coordinator until a few days before the wedding. They might have hired someone since then though, and I still highly recommend this venue because we had the most beautiful wedding we could have imagined!

    Don't hesitate to book with Running Hare!

    Our wedding at Running Hare Vineyard on April 27, 2019 was amazing! The venue itself is absolutely beautiful! We used the pergola to have an outdoor ceremony and then went into the Tuscan Villa to have the indoor cocktail hour/reception - we had the best of both worlds! There was enough parking for all 110 guests and even though there was another wine event at RH. The other band did not play 30 minutes before our wedding and we didn't hear a peep during or after our ceremony.

    The management was great. Taylor was a joy to work with always answering questions even when she was off. She was there the day of just to make sure that everything ran smoothly. For the price you can't beat it.

    The Villa was amazing to use as well. We had an 8-piece band, photo booth, cake area, and 4 food stations, 110 guests and there was plenty of room to move around.

    The best part was that our dog (chocolate Lab) was allowed to be on the property at the ceremony to be the ring pup. RH worked with us to allow him to get pictures at the end as well.

    The pictures were great and the entire event was amazing.

    Don't hesitate to book your wedding at RH!

    Hi Tiffany,
    We appreciate your kind words and we are so glad to hear that your wedding day was all that you could imagine! We wish you all the best!

    Look no further!

    Running Hare Vineyard was the absolute best wedding venue for my husband and I. From the first time we visited RH we knew it was something special and not like most venues. It is beyond beautiful. The Tuscan villa is not something you would normally find in Maryland. I would definitely recommend RH. It is not only beautiful but working with Kim and Taylor was pleasant. Taylor updated you on things and was timely with emails which created less stress for myself. I would give RH and the experience of having my wedding there 10/10!

A newly engaged couple of mine recently booked Running Hare Vineyard for their engagement session and we were absolutely thrilled with the service we received when booking. Not only is this venue absolutely stunning, but the people there are so caring and genuinely excited for the couples who book them. I would highly recommend Running Hare!
