I cannot praise this venue enough! Not only is the venue ABSOLUTELY beautiful, the service and the staff are phenomenal! Dana, Paula and Peggi are all incredibly nice and were so helpful during the entire wedding process. They consistently reached out to see if there was anything they could do to make our planning run more smoothly. Dana was our wedding coordinator and she was amazing! She was very accommodating and went above and beyond for us. I stopped by the venue multiple times to get a ideas for decorations and it didn’t matter if I called and said I would be there in 5 minutes or at 5:00, Dana was happy to let us in. Anything we wanted, Dana and the rest of the staff found a way to make it happen, even last minute requests. The day of the wedding, we did not have to worry about a thing. Dana, Paula, Peggi and the rest of the staff were very attentive and took care of everything for us. The food was delicious and the best I have tasted at a wedding. We could not have had the perfect wedding that we had if it weren’t for the staff and all of their hard work! To sum it up, this venue is nothing less than perfect.

Our experience at the Silver Swan was nothing short of amazing! The entire staff is absolutely wonderful! The planning was so easy and everyone was so helpful. I live in Florida and was nervous about planning a wedding so far away. However, I had nothing to worry about because Paula and the team took care of everything…down to the last detail. The venue and views are absolutely breathtaking, the food is exquisite, and the Silver Swan staff is exceptional. We definitely had the wedding of our dreams!!!

Silver Swan was the second venue my husband and I looked at and we fell in love. It has the most perfect view of the bay & is the perfect place to have a private wedding. The inside is decorated so beautifully, it makes you feel so at home. I had 160 guests and it was the perfect size for all of my tables, the dance floor, the bar ect., and they have a beautiful lawn area overlooking the bay where the ceremony takes place, but also guests can hang out on the lawn during the reception which gives people a chance to spread out. Our pictures came out amazing, with all of the beautiful scenery. Above all, Paula & Dana were fantastic wedding coordinators. They made sure everything was decorated as I asked, were there for suggestions & made sure that everything went off without a hitch. I had my rehearsal dinner, my ceremony & my reception at Silver Swan and I would not have changed a thing. The food, staff & venue were so amazing & I could not be more thankful for them making our wedding day the best we could have ever hoped for!

I do not have words to describe how wonderful the entire staff at Silver Swan is! They helped us have the best night of our lives! We did not have to worry about anything and they made planning so easy! The day of our wedding, the staff was just as excited as we were and everything was even more beautiful than I imagined! Our guests are still telling us how awesome the food was and how it was the best wedding they had ever been to. I would recommend Silver Swan to anyone who wants to have the perfect wedding of their dreams ! Thank you Paula, Dana, Peggy and the entire staff ! You are exceptional !

Fireworks Galore!

5/ 5

We wanted a wedding on the water and looked at several eastern shore venues, but kind of knew this was the one as soon as we walked in. The venue is newly renovated and beautifully designed without being gaudy. The venue takes in a lot of light and is furnished with a tasteful stone fireplace, freshly painted white pillars and polished hardwood floors, and Chiavari chairs around the tables. These are simple touches but can determine whether a venue is just okay versus sophisticated and elegant. It is an intimate venue right on the water with a breathtaking sunset view. The service from Silver Swan was spectacular. Paula Safran was responsive to all of our frenzied EMails, confidently guided us in choosing other vendors without making that process more stressful, and genuinely was excited for us to have a dream wedding. Later in the process, we worked with Dana and Peggy, who were equally helpful and energized yet calm throughout. The catering staff made sure everyone was taken care of and my guests commented on the excellent service they experienced. I would without a doubt make sure you consider The Silver Swan if you are considering a wedding on the Eastern shore!

What can I say, the wedding was perfect. Everything was so smooth that all we had to do was sit back and enjoy the ride! The staff was perfect, the food was perfect, the weather was perfect (September 20th). It was a daytime wedding and we didn’t regret that one bit. Everyone that attended was complementing the entire time, i think a couple guests asked if they could have their wedding at that location also. Thank you guys for making it the best day of our lives.

5/ 5

Silver Swan Bayside is a fabulous wedding venue and my husband and I are so happy we hosted our big day there. The setting for the ceremony on the bay is picturesque, the food is delicious, and we had an incredible sunset on our wedding night to top it off. The staff that worked with us (Paula, Dana and Peggy) were attentive and responsive and overall made for a great experience! We can’t wait to go back in the years to come!

Peggi at Silver Swan was SO helpful and wonderful in my planning process. My husband and I canceled our big wedding and decided to throw a wedding in less than a month. Peggi was there to help, listen, and provide as much information as possible in such a short period of time. She worked with our tight budget and cut corners as much as she could and helped us find vendors. She even officiated our wedding! Wonderfull, beautiful venue it was so much better than I could ever have expected. http://www.danileighblog.com/2014/09/02/chelsea-matt-silver-swan/
