Swan Harbor Farm in Havre de Grace is hosting open houses once a month this upcoming wedding season to give future brides a chance to envision their big day.
At the open houses, brides-to-be can see what Swan Harbor has to offer for their wedding ceremony and reception, from the stunning waterfront views overlooking the Chesapeake Bay, to the brick walkway past the fountain and the seasonal reception tent that holds up to 250 people.
Open houses are scheduled from 12 to 3 p.m. on Sundays, April 10, June 12, July 10, August 14, September 11, October 16 and November 13. Members of Swan Harbor’s event staff will be available to hand out wedding information and answer questions.
Vendors, including caterers, photographers, florists and DJs, who haven’t worked at Swan Harbor are also welcome to attend and familiarize themselves with the facility and grounds.
Other amenities include the outside patio area that was recently upgraded with bistro lighting and new outdoor furniture, and the restored 1740s farmhouse that was recently painted and décor updated. It has dressing rooms upstairs for the bridal party and bathrooms on the first floor for guests.
Couples can see the many photo opportunities available: the beautiful gardens, the long path down to the waterfront, the gazebo overlooking the Chesapeake Bay and the pier extending 300 feet into the Bay.
The affordable Swan Harbor Farm is a Harford County Parks & Recreation facility. It was named a Best of Harford winner and has been recognized with multiple Couples Choice Awards from WeddingWire.com.
Kimberly Zulauf, whose wedding was rescheduled because of COVID, called Swan Harbor beautiful and amazing: “Our guests continue to talk about their favorite memories of our wedding, how BEAUTIFUL Swan Harbor was and how AMAZING the staff were. Knowing that they helped make our day so perfect meant the world to us.”
Erin Seekford said the staff was very accommodating: “Swan Harbor Farm was so understanding even when I couldn’t decide whether to go as planned or reschedule. And any questions I had during the process I got a response very quickly! I would recommend this venue to anyone looking for a memorable experience!”
