    Outstanding attention to detail

    Sarah did an INCREDIBLE job putting together our dream wedding. We made a last minute switch from a different venue and Sarah blew it out of the water on a short timeline. It was an stress-free event from start to finish. During planning she helped me find the perfect vendors, gave suggestions that maximized our budget and we truly enjoyed the planning experience.
    One very important piece was that I have a family member with celiac who can not have any cross contamination with gluten. Sarah made note of this before the event, checked in about it and another unidentified allergy during the event- and this was the first time in years my aunt has been able to eat a meal out in public without getting sick.
    The entire experience was flawless.

    Best day ever!!!

    Annapolis Waterfront Hotel was truly the perfect wedding venue. It鈥檚 indoor-outdoor set up, spacious second-floor ballroom and patio overlooking Ego Alley was perfect to give our guests a fun, Maryland experience. Sarah and the team made sure the day went without a hitch, they worked with out vendors the morning of to make sure everything was set perfectly. Leading up to the day, Sarah was very responsive and willing to answer any questions. They also had a recommended vendor list, which made finding our vendors very easy.

The Annapolis Waterfront Hotel is one of the chicest venues for which we have done event flowers. ...And let's talk about that fabulous harbor and bay view from the gorgeous deck! Sara, the event coordinator was so responsive and easy to work with, I was so impressed. It was a joy to create floral arrangements to coordinate with such a tastefully designed event space. It made my job easy. Very impressive, Annapolis Waterfront!
