"On what could have been the worst wedding weather day of 2018 (the day of hurricane Florence), we ended up with the most perfect day and venue. Not only was this due to the sudden change in the hurricanes trajectory but also because of the amazing staff at CBF that stayed calm, cool, and collected while we worked through some tough alternative weather plans. This venue is not only one of the most beautiful locations in MD but it has the greatest facility for an outdoor wedding. The covered deck is excellent for keeping people dry and shaded, and plenty large enough to house dining tables and a dance area. The beach front is perfect for a water side ceremony and you will get gorgeous photos no matter the weather. We loved every second of our wedding and that is a huge thanks to Emily and the rest of the CBF team."

"CBF was a dream come true for us. We had a large wedding party but still wanted to be close
proximity to downtown Annapolis. There aren’t a lot of places that can do both of those things! Couple that with CBF being incredibly beautiful and a rain or shine location, you have a perfect venue spot! Everything about the venue exceeded my expectations and our guests can’t atop buzzing about the views. A+ from us!!"
