Can't be beat - best wedding venue in Maryland
Our wedding this past weekend at the Graduate Annapolis was the dream wedding, thanks to Shannon Draley and the hotel staff. Originally scheduled at the US Naval Academy, Shannon saved us the day the Academy closed down and took over our wedding planning for us. She did it all - seating, meals, decor, flowers, and the rest, and got us a great deal on a block of rooms. In the end, we had over a dozen attendees staying at the hotel, almost 70 people in attendance, and everything went off without a hitch, no matter how many changes we made poor Shannon make for us. Always professional, polite, and friendly, she handled it all with aplomb and gave us a weekend that can never be beaten. Travis, Ellen, and Lucy at the front desk were also always friendly, completely responsive, and helped us with any request. I could go on and on, but suffice it to say that if you are looking for a wedding venue in Maryland, you MUST select the Graduate Annapolis and ask Shannon to take care of you, and your wedding will be the best!Sent on 10/19/2020

Our reception at the Graduate Annapolis was nothing short of amazing. Shannon and the entire hotel staff went out of their way to make sure that our day went smoothly. We had spent months anxious about how our wedding would look due to COVID-19, but Shannon and Mario ensured our wedding was both safe and beautiful. We were unable to have a tasting due to COVID-19, however every food we selected was delicious and plentiful. We are still hearing friends and family rave about the food and venue! Most of our guests stayed at the hotel for the weekend and everyone loved the nautical vibe and cleanliness of the rooms. The room we used as the bridal suite was huge--plenty of room for 11 girls to get ready, spend the day, and take pictures in! The guys were able to have their own room downstairs to hang out in. Shannon was knowledgeable, amazing to work with, calming, and so responsive. The entire hotel staff was kind, welcoming, and did whatever they could to ensure that our guests were taken care of all weekend. Overall we were amazed with our experience with Shannon and the Graduate Annapolis and would choose to have our reception here again in a heartbeat!Sent on 09/22/2020

We were scheduled to have our reception at the Graduate, and we had to cancel due to Coronavirus. I still wanted to write a review for other couples looking for a venue. The wedding coordinator, Shannon, was a pleasure to work with and very responsive when we had questions. The venue is newly renovated and beautiful. We were able to go to a tasting and find out that the food is wonderful! We were very excited for our guests to enjoy the food. The Graduate is definitely a venue we would recommend!Sent on 03/19/2020
