    Gorgeous wedding day!

    We are so thankful that we found and booked this venue. We loved our ceremony on the Polynesian Lawn - it was an absolutely gorgeous setting even on our chilly & windy November wedding day. And the Paradise ballroom tent for our reception was beautiful without even needing much extra decor. Our coordinators had been in touch throughout the whole planning process to help us put together the day we were dreaming of. We had wonderful wait staff and bar staff the day of, all of our guests enjoyed the food and drinks. And Marcie our day-of coordinator & Brittany our event coordinator were exceptional in making sure our vision for our wedding came to life, and that everything ran smoothly! Every detail we had gone over with them was executed perfectly. Couldn't recommend Herrington on the Bay more!

    Ultimate in Customization

    With their in house catering, Herrington is very capable of accommodating any and all dietary restrictions, and multiple guests called it the best food they'd ever had at a wedding. The gardens are beautiful and make for an amazing backdrop, but the venue also does a wonderful job contingency planning in the event of weather. They also offer a huge range of internal customization of decor, lighting, etc and have a very well vetted list of recommendations for all other vendors.
