There is literally no word in the English language that I can use to properly embody this venue!! It is simply breath taking and such a dream to be married in the vines of the vineyard and celebrate your nuptials in the Tuscan Villa. Accompanied by the GORGEOUS chandelier that is literally out of "Beauty and the Beast" and "Phantom of the Opera" combined!Sent on 10/10/2018
Taylor, the site manager, is an absolute joy to work with and really makes sure all of your questions and needs are met. She weaved in and out the day of the ceremony only popping up when you realized you needed her and was ready to do anything you need!
Seriously, book this venue. It will be the talk of your guests for MONTHS. It was a non stop discussion of how beautiful the venue was and how smoothly everything was orchestrated with their list of recommended vendors. It literally was my dream venue for our wedding day!

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.Sent on 05/23/2019
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!

A perfect venue for our wedding
We got married on June 2, 2019, and we both agreed that we couldn't have chosen a better place to get married. The venue was simply beautiful, and all our guests agreed that Running Hare and the wedding was gorgeous. As other brides/grooms have mentioned, there is plenty of parking next to the ceremony site and a walkway leading up to the reception site. The Bridal Suite was also an added plus, and the timeline went without a hitch. You do need to purchase wine, but the Sangiovese, Pinot Grigio, and Rose were well-loved by our guests.Sent on 06/08/2019
Taylor was wonderful to work with, and I highly recommend using Ken's Creative Kitchen as the caterer (on their approved vendors list). Trust me, you won't regret it.
I do want to mention to brides that if you are having a June outdoor wedding in Maryland to be prepared for the chance of rain! We got lucky and were able to avoid the rain during the ceremony (we got the lucky rain and a rainbow during the reception!), but the forecast definitely had me stressed leading up to the date!
Running Hare Vineyard Price Rates
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!
The Running Hare Vineyard is a beautiful venue located in Southern MD. The venue has an amazing hilltop ceremony location that overlooks the vineyard. The Tuscan-styled events building is breathtaking. The high ceilings and dark woods captivate you as soon as you walk in the door! If you are looking for a romantic venue full of character, this is your location.
