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.

Silver Swan Bayside was the perfect venue for my daughter’s wedding. Not only was the scenery breathtaking, the service was superb. Emily Paulin, our sales manager and coordinator, provided us with excellent service. She was very accommodating and helpful throughout the planning process, and on the day of the wedding, her calm and reassuring spirit helped to make the day quite memorable. The service from other staff members was professional and pleasant to work with.

It’s hard to know where to start with describing how perfect this venue and staff was for our Sept. 2018 wedding! Caitlin was extremely responsive, thorough, patient and professional from the start. We really hit the jackpot with her helping to make our day perfect. We planned our wedding in 3 months, and Caitlin ensured everything was seamless leading up to the wedding and the day of. We were carefully watching the weather due to a hurricane making its way up the coast and Caitlin and the management team were reassuring with a alternate plan in case we had to postpone/move the wedding to a different day. We got an amazing deal planning the wedding in such a short time frame and it was totally worth it, especially since the venue provides so much (decor, linens, etc.). I always had confidence things would fall into place. They worked with us to customize every detail and seamlessly executed things the day of. Caitlin helped us to adjust the schedule the day of as well (extending the cocktail time since folks were having so much fun enjoying socializing and enjoying the views). We did a family only ceremony with about 30 people then did a larger reception after. The indoor and outdoor space was perfect, allowing for a variety of places to socialize, explore, and take photos. The views were spectacular and we had one spectacular sunset. We can’t thank the entire team more. The bartender, the servers, catering (buffet food was amazing), coordinators…everyone was fantastic. Don’t hesitate to book Silver Swan!

We could not have asked for a more accommodating venue! Not only is the location absolutely perfect but the service was also top notch. Kara took care of us from the beginning when we booked the venue all the way through the wedding day. We just had to tell them what we wanted and they took care of the rest.

Dinner was delicious and they even made my 94 year old grandmother a separate dinner so that she could eat. They helped make our day so special!

Silver Swan is a beautiful venue and I highly recommend this place for a wedding. The staff, especially Caitlin was so great. Caitlin helped make the whole process stress free and helped make our wedding exactly what we pictured. It was simply beautiful and we would do it all over again if we could.

Silver Swan Bayside was everything I could have asked for in a wedding venue and more. Caitlin was our day-of coordinator. Not only was she right there whenever we needed something during the wedding day, she was so helpful throughout the entire planning process. She was quick to answer our emails and calls and even helped us with our timeline and to help vendors. She kept all our information very organized and made finalizing the smaller details way easier. Couldn’t have done it without her. For the venue itself it was absolutely perfect. After the ceremony, the entire bridal party went back to the bridal suite area where they had champagne and apps waiting for us. The food was AMAZING, all our guests raved about it. They even had fresh squeezed juices at the bar. We dropped of all our decorations a few days early and Caitlin had the venue set for us when we came to rehearsal. The view at this venue is just breathtaking. Everything from the ceremony to dinner to dancing flowed perfectly. I will recommend this venue over and over again!

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!

My husband and I just got married at Silver Swan Bayside in December and everything was beautiful! It poured down rain the day before our wedding but the weather on our wedding day was perfect! The venue has such a beautiful outdoor scenery for pictures, it is right on the Chesapeake Bay and the views are amazing. We loved that the Silver Swan has and indoor ceremony option, it was so wonderful to be able to be out of the cold weather for the ceremony but still be able to enjoy the beautiful views since they have windows all around the pavilion. The food was delicious and they provided so many great options. We were very pleased with the catering! Emily was the coordinator we worked with and she is incredible! She was so helpful with bringing my vision to life and everything about our wedding day turned out more beautiful than we could have imagined! Emily made sure our timeline for the day of was set and everyone was on the same page, and because of all her hard work and help our big day went smoothly and we got to go have fun because we trusted that Emily had everything under control & we didn’t have to stress. This venue is truly amazing and I would recommend it to anyone looking to have a wedding on the Eastern Shore in MD.

My husband and I just got married here on March 30th and we HONESTLY don’t have a single complaint about the staff or venue. Caitlin went ABOVE & BEYOND to accommodate any special requests we had and always responded to our millions of questions! They were extremely professional but relatable at the same time. I was a STRESS-FREE bride the day of thanks to her and the wonderful staff at Silver Swan. Our guests raved about the food and if you are looking for some amazing SUNSET pictures, this is the spot! If I had to do it all over again I wouldn’t change a thing!

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.
