What our Brides Say About Their Chesapeake Bay Waterfront Wedding

Kirkland Manor is our premier wedding venue on the Chesapeake Bay.  Originally built in the 1900s as a country estate, Kirkland Manor sits on the Miles River in St. Michaels and is part of 688 acres owned by the Calhoun M.E.B.A. Engineering School. Today it is rented for weddings and vacations to offset operating costs of the property and school used for training of marine personnel.

We have had so many happy couples tie the knot on our property and here are just a few of their reviews:

This is an easy review because we had a flawless, most wonderful and beautiful wedding at Kirkland Manor. We rented out Kirkland Manor from Friday – Sunday in early June 2019 for our daughter’s wedding. The wedding was spectacular! Angela, who is the main (and fabulous) point person at Kirkland Manor works with the perfect vendors (Classic Catering and Eastern Shore Tents) to help create a wedding that had our friends and family talking about for weeks after it was over. If you want to have your wedding in St.Michael’s/Easton, MD on the water, Kirkland Manor is it!

Angela and Tidewater Weddings are a true pleasure to work with! They are incredibly attentive to detail and provide wonderful support to ensure that our wedding went smoothly and seamlessly. They are always providing insight and recommendations, but also listen to your wants and needs and make sure they meet you where you are. Angela is so sweet and fun to work with! She takes pride in her work and provides the most high quality service throughout the entire planning process. Kirkland is an absolutely beautiful venue, and the privacy and elegance of the venue were so appreciated by our guests. It also is the perfect location to watch the sunset–and we found hundreds of our guests flocking to the water to watch the sun go down. It is a truly memorable location and made our day so special. Thank you Angela and Vicky!!!

We couldn’t have been happier with our services and our wedding at Kirkland Manor! Being from Baltimore, we had our hearts set on an Eastern Shore wedding. While there is no shortage of gorgeous locations in Easton and Saint Michaels, when we saw Kirkland Manor, we were in love. It allows us a waterfront wedding, a huge lawn with plenty of space, multiple choices for ceremony location (they even let us change location day of because after a month of rain, we were graced with an 86 degree day and needed shade!) and cocktail hour, and a stunning manor house to boot. The staff at Kirkland were incredibly helpful and we really feel like they are family now! One thing we really enjoyed was being able to have the location for the weekend, we didn’t have to rush anywhere. A few family and friends stayed on site with us and it was so much fun. We can’t wait to go back again soon!
