Celebrations at the Bay’s Attributes

Catering by Uptown is more than a catering service.

They have a selection of upscale venues for couples to choose from. One of their Maryland venues, Celebrations at the Bay, is an amazing option for couples who desire a waterfront wedding venue not only for breathtaking views but also for countless settings for romantic photographs.

Celebrations at the Bay is the ultimate wedding destination in the DMV. Couples do not have to go far to experience that “getaway” feel for a wedding experience. The venue overlooks the Chesapeake Bay and contains two elongated piers, great for unique photography. There is also a gazebo and green, manicured grass and flower gardens to add to your once-in-a-lifetime experience.

The venue offers three unique ballrooms for your event, depending on preference and the size of the wedding.

The first spot is the spacious Tented Vista Ballroom, which is a perfect climate-controlled tent that holds up to 300 guests for an all-inclusive waterfront wedding.

The second is the Chesapeake Ballroom. This ballroom provides a backdrop of the vast and beautiful, blue waters of the Chesapeake Bay (perfect for an indoor ceremony and reception alike). Couples love the floor to ceiling windows, hardwood floors and up lighting that creates an intimate atmosphere. The Chesapeake Ballroom easily hosts up to 150 guests.

The third is the Knollview House. This space is truly for the intimate wedding, accommodating up to 70 people. The colonial style house is surrounded by beautiful greenery, and of course, with water views. Host your ceremony under an oak tree overlooking the Chesapeake Bay, have cocktails on the spacious covered deck and continue the celebration reception inside. Guests will admire colonial furnishing, wood floors and crystal chandeliers.
