The Oaks – A Perfect Maryland Wedding Venue for an Unforgettable Wedding

The setting is magical. And entirely yours. The Oaks Waterfront Inn and its grounds become a private preserve for you, your wedding party, and guests. It’s all yours on the evening before, the day of, and the morning after your waterfront wedding. The beautifully landscaped grounds of The Oaks offer a wide variety of outdoor activities in a relaxing setting. The Oaks can explore a rich blend of historic churches, manicured Colonial and Victorian homes, diverse artistic talents, and pleasant Southern culture. And the wedding celebration itself becomes part of a portrait of enduring memories, tailored just so to accommodate your preferences…and what you’ve always dreamed your wedding should be.

After the ceremony, cocktails are served waterside accompanied by butler-passed hors d’oeuvres. Dinner is in a venue with room for up to 220 guests. The tables overlook the panorama of our secluded cove, which glows with the light of the setting sun. As a result, The Oaks is the perfect Maryland waterfront wedding venue for an unforgettable event.

The cuisine is superb, prepared to perfection by the former chef and owner of 208 Talbot, once the region’s premier fine dining restaurant. The decorative flourish of fourteen individually furnished guest rooms plus a bridal cottage accommodates you and the wedding party in fine style. Imagine the dream wedding in your minds eye. Picture it at The Oaks. Picture…perfect.

Our premier waterfront event facility still has select dates available in 2022.

Please call us to discuss these dates, special pricing and incentives. We also encourage you to inquire about our special off season rates.

…Dining & Dancing to Follow
