    Planning a COVID Wedding at AWH

    I had the pleasure of working with Sarah and her team at the Annapolis Waterfront Hotel. Sarah and her team were proactive with the COVID 19 precautions and the wedding in August 2020 was a huge success! AWH was accommodating and flexible during the ever changing COVID 19 wedding planning process. It was a pleasure to work with AWH and I would highly recommend Sarah and her staff!

    We are so happy!

    Sarah L. and her team were amazing! We are so happy with our decision to get married at AWH. Planning with Sarah was super easy and she was so very organized and thoughtful!
    Our weekend was absolutely perfect.

    Sarah was always 2 steps ahead I appreciate all her help in having the day run smoothly. I felt like I was in good hands :). AWH was beautiful, our guest raved about the food. It was so convenient having our guests stay at AWH or nearby in town. We loved having the ceremony, cocktail hour and the reception all in one place. It was the perfect venue for us!

    Also, I was so pleasantly surprised the day after the wedding I woke up with all the decorations neatly packed up in bins on a cart ready to go! Which made the pack up and car load easy. Something you don't even think when planning a wedding is the clean up!

    We are very appreciative of AWH team!

    Outstanding Wedding

    The Waterfront Hotel worked with us in the beginning and the team was very professional in developing the plan for the reception. Then when the pandemic hit, they went above and beyond to not only take on the reception but the ceremony itself; which made for a very easy weekend to be all inclusive in the hotel complex. And fighting thru a power outage ~an hour before the ceremony and possible storms to have the outside ceremony and happy hour was fantastic. It was what our daughter wanted in a wedding since she was 4 years old...thanks

Mimoza Design Mimoza Design Wedding Florists

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!
