The Maryland wedding venue Black Walnut Point Inn is a great way to get the intimacy of an island and the beauty of a waterfront view. Bob and Tracy are the sweetest people you could trust with your wedding. Since 2010, Bob and Tracy have been the Innkeepers of Black Walnut Point Inn and they did a wonderful job with the property. This Maryland private island haven is one of the most unique spots on the Chesapeake Bay that I’ve ever seen. Learn more about this venue and see a reel wedding here.
