We had a wonderful experience working with Watermark. Our wedding coordinator, Stephanie, did an amazing job with all of the details and walked us through each step seamlessly. The wedding ceremony and reception were aboard the Catherine Marie yacht which was a great decision because it was perfect for dancing, dining, and lounging on the top deck. The captain and crew were phenomenal. I would recommend this venue if you want a great party for your guests. Many of our family and friends told us it was the most fun wedding they had ever attended.Sent on 07/06/2019

Wonderful Exit from our Annapolis Wedding!!
We chartered a water taxi to pick us up from our wedding at the Annapolis Maritime Museum and take us downtown after our wedding for our exit. It was incredible!!! We absolutely loved the experience and will recommend it to everyone. We got compliments from our guests for the unique exit, and it was nice to cool everyone off before hitting the bars!Sent on 07/05/2019

My husband and I had the pleasure of having our wedding reception on the Lady Sarah in April 2018. We couldn’t have been happier to discover Watermark for our ~40 guest, celebration. Taylor and the rest of the Watermark staff we worked with were great for helping us create the memorable experience we wanted. They had a thorough list of vendors to work with which made the planning process easy. We choose to create our own music playlist for the event rather than having a DJ and created our own decorations, but it was nice having options. Taylor assisted with a timeline for the event which worked out perfect. She was also great as a day of coordinator assisting with arranging décor and making sure not only we were taken care of but our guests as well. We made a last minute change to cruise up the Severn River due to wind conditions. The crew was wonderful in accommodating this change. It worked out beautifully because we got an amazing sunset over downtown Annapolis on our return. Our guests absolutely loved the scenic views on the Severn River.
The Lady Sarah was perfect for a buffet style eating arrangement which worked out great for us. The boat dresses up very nice with linens and décor. We had the ability to make it as casual or fancy as we chose. With its two decks our guests could comfortably eat downstairs in the enclosed level and enjoy some fresh air and sunshine from the top deck. We just loved some of the unique options being on the boat offered (like cruising into City Dock already aboard the boat to meet our guests and and having a personalized boat flag to name just a few).
We have since taken other cruises with Watermark and have truly enjoyed each of them. If you are looking for a unique wedding or celebration venue that your friends and family won’t forget, I highly encourage considering a Watermark cruise.Sent on 08/19/2018
