    Best waterfront venue!

    We got married on 10/23/21 at Silver Swan Bayside and cannot recommend the venue enough! After visiting several waterfront venues that just didn’t quite feel right to us, we visited Silver Swan and both immediately knew it was the one. The views of the bay are unmatched! Every single guest we’ve talked to since the wedding has commented on how absolutely beautiful the venue is and asked us how we found them. We were fortunate to have beautiful weather for our wedding day, but we loved that even if it rained, we would still have waterfront views indoors, as well. That was definitely something that made Silver Swan stand out from the other waterfront venues we visited.

    We worked with Caitlin as our day-of coordinator and she was absolutely amazing. Throughout the entire planning process, she was so accommodating and easy to communicate with. She answered all of our emails quickly and always had an answer for whatever logistical question we had. On the day of our wedding, Caitlin was such a calming and positive presence (as was the rest of the staff), and we felt confident that they would handle every single detail so that we could relax and enjoy the day. We could tell they truly cared about us and ensured our day was exactly as we envisioned it. They set up everything so beautifully and broke everything down/cleaned it up as well, which was a huge stress off of our plates! The attention to detail that Caitlin and the rest of the staff at Silver Swan put into our day was so appreciated and helped make our day perfect.

    BEST Venue and People EVER!

    My husband, Jeff, and I were SO blessed to FINALLY be able to have our wedding reception at Silver Swan Bayside on July 10, 2021! We really could go on and on about this wonderful venue and really can not recommend them enough to other couples looking for the perfect venue! 💕

    We are local to the Eastern Shore and found SSB in July 2019 soon after we got engaged. We looked at several other venues, however, none of them were as personal, beautiful, and accommodating as SSB! SSB truly cares about each and every wedding and does not have the "factory" feel of so many other venues. It is a family feel and usually there is only one wedding each day. Their venue has so much shore charm and is well taken care of. It is pure understated beauty from the dining room to the covered area for dancing that allows guests to take in the view. It is BY FAR the BEST view on the bay and the sunsets are AMAZING! Other venues could not even compete in this area. SSB offers so much and their pricing is extremely reasonable compared to others. Much is included in your package where as other venues upcharge for everything! In my opinion, you get much more than you pay for!

    We also had the pleasure of working with Emily throughout our entire planning process. We could tell right away that she was so personable and a true gem! We originally contracted for July 2020 and then all went crazy with the world. Emily was there for us, comforted us, and supported us. She helped us to reschedule everything for July 2021. I really cannot put into words all Emily did for us! She is a sweetheart and took care of us from start to finish. She ensured that every detail of our day was better than we envisioned it and absolutely perfect!

    We really cannot thank Emily and the team at SSB for all they did to make our big day SO perfect! Our guests had the best time and cannot stop talking about how beautiful our reception was and how perfect SSB was! It really is the BEST venue with the BEST people, look no further! Our reception was nothing short of a DREAM and we will be daydreaming about it forever! We could not have done it without them and we are forever thankful! 💕

    True Fairy Tale Experience

    It was truly a pleasure working with The Silver Swan Bayside. Our wedding was unfortunately impacted by covid and postponed until 2021. The venue was beyond reasonable and flexible and went above and beyond to exceed our expectations! The team was professional and full of personality which made planning and our actual wedding day a dream come true.

    I felt like I was in the middle of my own fairy tale and never wanted it to end. I can not wait for our final photos so I can share how magical our wedding was.

Hello future newlyweds! Thank you for your interest in Silver Swan Bayside! I have worked at SSB since 2017 and I LOVE this job. While we have a small team, we are like family and it is our pleasure to make this day the best day of your life!

I love being creative and working with our couples to bring their vision into our space. We always joke that Mother Nature does most of decor work but still it is so fun to bring the colors and theme you have been dreaming about and make it work in our indoor/outdoor waterfront space. I love getting to know the family members and I always say that my favorite part is the rehearsal. That is when I get the opportunity to show a little bit of my personality and get everyone nice and relaxed for the big day.

We are so excited to speak with you and I truly believe that we have the best venue and the best team around! Thanks for stopping by!
