Silver Swan Bayside
The Silver Swan Bayside combines quiet sophistication, exquisite views of the Chesapeake Bay, and breathtaking sunsets to create the perfect setting for wedding ceremonies, receptions, corporate events, private parties and special occasions of any kind.
Located at the Queen Anne Marina on beautiful Kent Island, we’re just a short drive from Baltimore, Washington and Annapolis, but we feel a world away from the rushed pace of the city. With beautiful gardens, grassy lawns, a private beach and tented oversized pavilion, we can comfortably accommodate up to 220 guests. Our dining room offers beautiful panoramic views of the Chesapeake Bay, and if the weather should become a little chilly, your guests can warm up by our cozy fireplace.

My husband and I had the perfect wedding at Silver Swan Bayside this month. We worked with Emily, who was so wonderful in every way – very responsive, able to go with the flow for any last minute changes, and generally just a very kind and pleasant person to be around. We had some weather issues on the day of the wedding that had the potential to make things very challenging, but she made sure everything ran smoothly and was absolutely perfect. The venue is gorgeous, indoor and out. Our guests raved about it and also loved the food. We are so grateful to have had this team and this place to share such a special day!

We chose Silver Swan for my daughter’s wedding and it was truly a wonderful experience! Caitlin, our coordinator, was absolutely amazing. I had been a bit concerned with all the planning since I reside over a hundred miles away, however, Caitlin put my fears to rest beginning with day 1. We communicated often and she was so attentive to my needs and concerns.
My daughter’s wedding day was absolutely perfect..every detail carried out flawlessly! The venue, for both the outdoor ceremony and indoor reception, looked just amazing. Caitlin and her staff kept us on schedule with our timeline and we had such a great time from the moment we arrived right on up to the sparkler farewell. All of our guests were so impressed with the beautiful scenery, delicious buffet and plentiful bar. They had so much fun dancing, playing yard games, or just relaxing by the fire pit and bay. Thanks to our photographer, Cassidy Mister, my daughter has beautiful photos that captured so many wonderful moments throughout the day.
I highly recommend Silver Swan and Caitlin to make all your wedding dreams come true!
When my husband and I initially began our search for a wedding venue, we had no idea that we’d end up at Silver Swan. Not being from the area, we weren’t sure what to expect only going off of pictures and good reviews. You drive through a residential neighborhood and at the very end of it you arrive at Silver Swan, which forms a peninsula off the Chesapeake Bay. The view is breathtaking and I knew we wouldn’t find another place like it. It’s a quaint venue that accommodated our number of guests (103) perfectly.
We primarily worked with Kara who is exceptional! She is thorough, transparent, and has a great sense of humor. She gave us the confidence that newly engaged couples need in the beginning. I loved working with her! She was seemingly always available whenever I had a question and made the daunting planning process rather enjoyable for us.
We were in a unique situation where they completely changed menu offerings and the Executive Chef after our initial tasting, which was underwhelming to say the least. We still had the option of using the old menu, but luckily we were invited back to try out the new Chef’s (Frederik De Pue) creations/menu and were blown away. Our guests all agreed, the food on our wedding day was exceptional. It was night and day (from initial tasting to wedding day) and we honestly felt the quality and creativity of the new menu was a great value.
Accommodations are available for your guests in Stevensville/Kent Island, but the hotels are limited and on the expensive side. We stayed in downtown Annapolis, which is about a 25-30 minute drive to the venue. The Bay Bridge and traffic in general is unpredictable, so give yourself ample time if you’re staying off the island.
We have the BEST memories of our wedding day and couldn’t have asked for a better experience. We’re still hearing from our guests about how wonderful everything was. The entire Silver Swan staff from beginning to end was courteous, polite, and professional. Thank you to all the employees of Silver Swan who made our day so special and one that we will remember for a lifetime.
