    COVID Flexible and Awesome Events Director

    My husband and I had our heart set on Annapolis and the Graduate was stunning! The Atrium was perfect for our ceremony and seamlessly flipped for the cocktail hour. Dinner was fantastic. Guests even commented on how it was some of the best wedding food they'd had! The rooms and themed hotel really were perfect for our wedding plus the guest rooms were impeccable. Because of COVID, we weren't able to do a tasting but Shannon, the events director, steered us towards the best options and it was delicious. In fact, Shannon was the best part of this venue. Her customer service, flexibility, kindness, and guidance made for an amazing experience and day. We are a COVID couple and she really reassured us through everything and always helped us explore "just in case" options We added a lot of different precautions and Shannon was great in executing those for our guests. While Annapolis offers a lot of great venue options, I would 100% pick the Graduate again.

    One to remember forever

    If you are looking to have your wedding somewhere, I promise you this hotel knows how to host a event! The hotel staff and managers were very attentive and accommodating and made sure that we didn't have to worry about anything. We especially appreciated working with the Wedding Catering/group Sales manager Shannon. Everyone was very inviting and willing to go the extra mile to make sure our event and guests where taken care of. February 20, 2021 will be a day my wife and I will remember forever. We only live 10 mins away but decided to extend our stay longer because we were having such a good experience. We are so thankful for everything that was done to make our day special!

    Graduate Annapolis's reply:

    Jamal & Brittany,
    It was so wonderful to work with you both and your families in the planning of this weekend. Every last detail was beautiful and perfect! We know it was tough to plan amid the pandemic, but you did it Mr. & Mrs. Walker!
    CONGRATULATIONS!!
