The Perfect Wedding Experience

Fisherman’s Knot

“Tying the Knot” is a symbol of lasting unity, representing the tying together of two lives and destinies.

In this special nod to the Tides Inn’s nautical location, a Fisherman’s Knot will be tied during the ceremony and become a keepsake for the couple.

Oysters & Champagne

Long known as the ultimate romantic indulgent pairing for western palates, oysters and champagne are a sophisticated addition to a nuptial or anniversary. The Tides Inn’s idyllic location, where the Chesapeake Bay Wine Trail meets the Virginia Oyster Trail, provides fresh, local fare at its finest.

Champagne and oysters make for an elegant pre-reception cocktail hour, or, you can enjoy an oyster roast as a more casual reception addition. The Tides Inn’s culinary team will provide shucking and pairing demonstrations.
