Details of the Grounds

The Herring Bay Gardens tend to be a favorite spot for outdoor weddings. This space brings you as close to the Bay as you could want. An arched pergola has been built at the front of the space and serves as a popular space for couples to exchange vows. Two palm trees stand proudly behind the pergola, and you’ll be just feet from the beach. The ambiance of the waves will elevate your wedding. 

You are also able to use the Polynesian Lawn for an outdoor wedding venue. This area features vibrant native plants and a waterfall across the grounds. 

For an indoor venue, you can use the Herrington Yacht Club. This elegant space features high ceilings and white walls that you can elevate with your decorations.

The venue has several indoor and outdoor spaces you can utilize for your reception. The Herrington Yacht Club features three ballrooms, including the Harbor View Ballroom on the lower level, a Chesapeake Ballroom on the upper level, and the Harbor Deck. All spaces feature plenty of room where you can raise a glass to the next chapter of your story. 

For an outdoor venue, you can use the Paradise Ballroom. This space is just outside of the Polynesian Lawn and provides a large event tent with plenty of space for dancing. You can have the venue take down the tent if you would prefer and have your reception completely open. 

Other Specialty Spaces At The Herrington On The Bay Wedding Venue

The Harbor Deck provides your guests with a comfortable space where they can enjoy cocktails and take in all the splendor of this truly exquisite venue. If you would prefer for this portion of the day to take place outside, the venue can set you up on one of their various paved patios. 

Herrington on the Bay is a resort with comfortable rooms you can use to get ready ahead of your ceremony. You will have plenty of space to kick back your feet and get pampered while sipping champagne at your wedding party. 

Herrington on the Bay is ready to accommodate weddings of all sizes! The Herrington Ballroom can accommodate up to 170 guests, and the Paradise Ballroom can host up to 350 guests. 

The venue has been thoughtfully set up to throw lavish, upscale weddings. The lawn of the Herring Bay Gardens features a paved aisle, and there are lush plants that keep it separate from the Yacht Club. The tent of the Paradise Ballroom features rich drapery that reaches a crescendo beneath a crystal chandelier. The interior of the Herrington Yacht Club features white walls, spacious dance floors, chandeliers, and mezzanines overlooking the lower level.
