    5 Star Service

    Let me start off by saying Michelle is a GODSEND. She was incredibly patient, organized, responsive, and flexible. She helped us get from A to B, seamlessly, offering up suggestions for other local vendors, meeting with us whenever we had time to visit the venue (squeezing us into her busy schedule), making special accommodations for family on the day of our event, and even assisting with placement of ‘day of’ decorations.

    The other staff there are also amazing. Think little things, like helping family unload vehicles, addressing specific guest needs, holding my late Amazon packages for me and delivering to my room (oops), making sure family was booked in rooms near one another, etc. Those are the things that brides do NOT want to be stressin leading up to their wedding day!

    And the food, I mean…WOW! It was as good, if not better than we expected, and let me just tell you, they do NOT skimp on the tasting! We left full AND happy. If menu is at the top of your wedding day priorities, check out this venue. We had numerous guests say our wedding was one of the classiest they’d ever been to and that the food was some of the best they’d ever tasted. You can’t go wrong with the lobster bisque (plentiful chunks of meat), beef Wellington appetizer, rockfish, or filet entree. One of my friends said she wanted to “lick the plate” and my nephew, who's only 9yrs old, polished off THREE steaks (my grandparents couldn’t eat it all). Our guests are still raving about the dinner, four months later.

    And four months later, we are delighted and ever grateful to Michelle and her staff. Our wedding was truly special and as some would even say, “dreamy”. Everything was perfect, down to the finishing details.

    Historic Inns of Annapolis's reply:

    Thank you Heather & Justin! We were so happy to be a part of your Wedding Day! Thank you so much for the kind words!

    Beautiful venue!

    We immediately fell in love with the Governor Calvert House when searching for venues. Even with staffing changes, their staff remained responsive and professional. Laney and April reassured us that our wedding day will go exactly as we planned and it did! They even made sure that my 9 year old was entertained before the wedding began. The food from the Treaty of Paris was delicious and guests raves about how beautiful our wedding day was! The setup and flow of our wedding day at the Governor Calvert house was everything dreamt of!

Historic Inns of Annapolis (Governor Calvert House) really knows how to put on a wedding!! Great history in the middle of Annapolis, right on State Circle! Texture, wood, great ballroom and dining room. And let's not forget the open air terrace that gives bridal clients great options for their cocktail hour. Excellent food and service await you at this historic property!

If you want an authentic place in Annapolis to get married this is it! I love photographing weddings with the photograph of the statehouse in the background! The parties are always great there! It is in downtown so your guests can have a unique experience and easily go out somewhere else for an after party!

Kyle Bergner Photography Kyle Bergner Photography Wedding Photographers

I just love working here year after year. From a photography standpoint it is one of the most beautiful locations in Annapolis and Michelle is amazing.
