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!
