Over the last few weeks I had the pleasure of visiting some beautiful wedding venues in the Southern Maryland area. The first venue I stopped by was the historic Sotterley Plantation. This amazing venue is located in St. Mary’s County in Hollywood, Maryland. It is a little off the beaten path and would be a great location to get that private event feel. Sotterley Plantation is perfectly located right on the water and has a breathtaking view from all of it’s possible ceremony and reception locations on the property. Whether you are looking for a venue to host your small, intimate wedding to a large affair they can accommodate up to 350 guests, depending on the area you decide to rent.
They have four areas located in their gardens that are available to rent for your wedding day. The Garden Room, the Pecan Room, the Croquet Lawn and the Terrace. Each of these locations are decorated with a lush view of flowers and shrubbery. You even get the gorgeous view of the Patuxent River. These gardens are close by the Spinning Cottage. This is the prefect space for the bridal party to prepare for the day and it’s located right next to the plantation house!
The Barn makes for a great rustic style reception. It is the venue’s largest indoor location available for rent. It has windows throughout, large double doors that can be open to allow more space and vaulted ceilings. The decor ideas were flowing when I entered this building!
The Warehouse offers a more intimate feel for your ceremony and reception. It is a smaller building allowing ceremony seating for up to 50 guests, a standing reception for 75-100 guests, or banquet seating for 36 guests. The exposed beams and brick walls really give this location charm!
The Riverside Pavilion is located in the lawn next to the Brink Cottage. This makes a great location and the cottage is the perfect space for the bridal party to get ready. It has a great view of the Patuxent River and is located just a little further back from the plantation house. Giving this location even more privacy!
