I am an in very, very early stages of looking for reception venues and I believe in planning early. I grew up on the Eastern Shore and wanted to get married there. I wanted to get married at the church where I grew up, but I want to have the reception at somewhere elegant (or that can be made to look elegant), near water (preferably with a waterfront view, indoor (it will be next Spring), and reasonable (no more than 12K for 150 guests). I wouldn't mind an inclusive (site and food), but I wouldn't be opposed to hiring a separate caterer at the right setting. The ideal area would be Talbot, Dorchester, or Caroline (are there any good places there in Caroline?). Anything further than that would be too far from the church. Any good ideas jumping out at you? Also, if you know places that I shouldn't even consider that would help save me time!
