Simply…perfect. Since the first day, every single person was warm, kind, helpful, patient. Marcie, Katie, Lexy, Mickey, and our awesome VIP server, made the day-of stress free, easy, and SEAMLESS! The only thing they seemed concerned about was if we were happy and having fun. Everyone worked so hard to make our day their priority. It was all so special - from planning all the way to the grand sparkler exit. All of our friends and family had a BLAST. The level of genuine care and attention to detail has always been a staple here. I am so thankful for every moment and person involved!!!

“My husband and I could not recommend Herrington on the Bay enough. From our first encounter with them to our wedding everything was more than we could imagine. All of the staff we worked with were amazing and extremely professional. Our day off coordinator, Melissa was absolutely fantastic . It’s been two weeks since our big day and we are still getting compliments from our guests on the wedding and the staff. The fireworks were the hit of the night and were better than we expected. Scott and I highly recommend Herrington on the Bay for your wedding, you won’t regret it!"

“I can’t put into words how special this place is and how wonderful all of the people we worked with are. From the moment I toured Herrington, I knew I had to get married there. We had to wait almost two years until our big day since they book out so far in advance, but it allowed us plenty of time to plan the perfect wedding with our wonderful coordinator, Lexy. She kept us on schedule, answered every little question I had throughout the process, and went above and beyond for us. I can’t tell you how many times our guests told us that it was the best wedding they had ever been to. This place is truly special.”

“My fiancé and I cannot speak more highly of this beautiful venue. From the very beginning, the Herrington team has been kind and organized. They helped map out all the details and kept us updated and on track along the way. Our day-of-coordinator, Katie, was very responsive and answered all the questions that we had. She was very helpful and accommodating when it came to setting our decor up and making decisions regarding set up.
We are very happy with our decision to have our wedding at Herrington on the Bay!”
