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!"
