Vandiver Inn




The Vandiver Inn is located on the pristine Chesapeake Bay in the historic town of Havre de Grace. The Vandiver Inn is a stunning wedding location. Manicured outdoor grounds and flowering gardens gracefully accent a wedding ceremony under the Inn's gazebo. After exchanging vows you and your guests can enjoy a reception under the large open pavilion. The pavilion is elegant with high ceilings and draped chiffon details. With flowers, candles, or hanging paper lanterns the pavilion quickly transforms to a romantic space. The pavilion offers all the perks of an indoor as well as outdoor reception. The Vandiver Manson is also available for your party and provides an elegant space for wedding preparation. It is the perfect spot to snap intimate wedding photos of you and your love. Wedding celebrations at the Vandiver Inn are elegant and full of fun. Dine, dance and be merry on your very special day.
