Gorgeous Annapolis Destination Wedding: USNA & Hidden View Farm

Senior Planner Leslie Jefferson so enjoyed working with Naval Academy couple Alana and Roscoe making their Annapolis destination wedding a dream come true and a weekend to remember.

The couple wanted to keep things simple yet elegant and chose an ethereal, organic color scheme and venue.  The United States Naval Academy & Hidden View Farm were the perfect spots to WOW guests in from across the country.  Photographer Krista Jones did a great job of capturing the love and the special feelings throughout the day.

“My wedding day took place over 6 months ago, and my husband and I still daydream about the day. Wedding Savvy, Inc. was a game changer for me, especially since I was planning my wedding from California. Leslie was a fairy godmother, who thought about everything, and planned every detail, so that I didn't have to think about it, and I could go about my daily life without the worry of planning a wedding by myself. My stress was so low because of her, and I can't thank her enough. From the constant communication, to the recommendations, to being the go-between with vendors, she was incredible. And to top it all off, she and her team created a fairy tale reception for us! I cannot even describe the ease that I felt the day of the wedding, and it was all because of her. It was such a neat moment to arrive to our reception, with no idea of what the event would look like (because I didn't lift a finger in the coordination), but to have complete trust that our vision would be fulfilled. Yes, it was expensive, but we wouldn't have had it any other way. I did not want to assemble table arrangements, or craft the days leading up to my wedding, because I would much rather pay for the convenience and sit back and enjoy the festivities. Wedding Savvy was a gift from above, and I would use them over and over again.” - Alana

Natalie and Sam's Boho Backyard Wedding

Natalie and Sam bought a house on the water in Annapolis with the vision of hosting their wedding reception there. With lots of love and thoughtfulness, thier day came together just the way they envisioned and created a lifelong memory! Hats off to Victoria Selman for capturing these amazing images of Sam & Natalie’s magical May wedding!


The ceremony was performed in a clearing on the property that had the feeling of an enchanted forest. The couple created a wire web to hang drapes to cover the area as well as a wooden aisle to lay carpet over for the most unique and special feeling in the forest! Guests were absolutely in love with the magical feel of the space and we completely agree :)

Natalie and Sam had a family friend provide the family style catering and Natalie & Bridesmaids personally arranged the flowers for the centerpieces in the vintage containers Natalie had been collecting. So much thought and personalization went into this wedding that made it meaningful and special to both the couple and their guests! We would be remiss to not mention the amazing DJ skills of Pedro from Mixing Maryland that kept EVERYONE on the dance floor all night long — it was hard to keep our coordinators’s toes from not tapping!


It was such a pleasure to be a part of this magical wedding day as a day of coordinator allowing Natalie, Sam, & their family and guests truly enjoy the big day!

William Paca House Wedding Ceremony + Elegant Annapolis Waterfront Hotel Wedding = FABULOUS!

Ginny and Max had a gorgeous day June 9th. With a smile on her face all day, Ginny decided to wear a removable off-the-shoulder top for her ceremony, and took it off for the couple's reception, revealing a stunning strapless sweetheart dress.

The theme and tones of the day were white, gold, silver, and a blush pink. Flowers were perfectly incorporated into this beautiful June summer wedding day!

The couple said their vows outside at the lovely William Paca House & Gardens. The party continued at the beautifully decorated Annapolis Waterfront Hotel. One of the highlights of this event was the custom bar and clear top tent that was brought in to make the patio into an elegant cocktail hour space!  Props to Event Pro for the beautiful decor and Anna Schmidt for doing a fantastic job capturing this beautiful day and couple!

“Gina was my day-of-planner and I could not have gotten through my wedding without her! I read the great reviews on wedding savvy and felt confident that this company would provide stellar service. Gina truly exceeded my expectations. From 2 months out, she ensured my contracts were in line and all the small details were not missed. She was always available for questions and advice. She met with me several times prior to the wedding and so on the day, I felt very secure that everything would go smoothly! From the smallest, to the largest details, Gina and her team, made sure I could truly enjoy my wedding. I even forgot a piece of my wedding dress and she made sure I had it before the ceremony! I couldn’t say enough about her commitment and hard work to organize and ensure my perfect day. I highly recommend hiring Wedding Savvy ! It was worth every penny!”

Glam Wedding with Beautiful Greenery? Yes they Did! The Belvedere Hotel & Cathedral of Mary Our Queen

Belvedere hotel BY Jillian Michelle Photography

Caitlin & Dave are an easy going couple that wanted an affair to remember. With a love for all things sparkly and music, this couple created a wedding to remember.

The stunning Cathedral of Mary our Queen was the perfect backdrop for Caitlin & Danny’s fall wedding day. The guests were in for a treat with a bagpiper welcome to this traditional catholic mass that was the official beginning for Caitlin & Danny’s married life. The Bagpipers traversed the Cathedral’s steps as guests entered into the breathtaking church. It was an absolute privilege to work alongside Shirley, the Cathedral Coordinator who was welcoming and helpful and together Wedding Savvy & Shirley got our couple down the aisle and back for a fabulous kiss caught by Jillian Michelle.

Speaking of Jillian, she got the most FABULOUS photos of our bridal party, wouldn’t you agree?

The wedding reception space was the perfect mix of glam (thanks to the gorgeous Charles Ballroom at the Belvedere) and natural greenery. Kelly green was so perfectly weaved into this event with the napkins and we can’t get enough of the natural +glam look! We loved that our music fans named the tables after their favorite albums - it was a great custom touch that they used the album artwork likeness to make

“Wedding Savvy is excellent!! Raquel and Emily helped me make sure everything was in place leading up to my wedding and made sure that everything went smoothly on the actual day! I was able to relax and not have to worry about anything and just enjoy the day. They are both extremely personable, responsive and experienced!” -Caitlin, Bride

Mike and Addie are two very savvy & busy professionals who knew exactly how they envisioned their wedding day coming together. With the help of Wedding Savvy, the day went exactly as planned and most importantly, Addie & Mike got to be guests at their own wedding!

Addie & Mike’s vision was a simple yet elegant look mixed with a warm rustic feeling. Addie knew her vision and with the help of her friends and family, brought the look to life by working with a family friend for flowers and creating the altar set up herself! The decor was simplistic yet elegant and perfect for her tastes. We loved it - don’t you agree?

Zeffert and Gold did an amazing job with the catering - the food was great and the service was seamless -way to go Z&G team!


Addie & Mike, it was our sincere pleasure to be a part of your wedding day. You are both smart and savvy and the epitome of a classy couple! It was our pleasure to meet your families and be there on your day taking care of the details so you could relax and enjoy your special moments. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your big day!

“Initially, I didn’t think I needed a planner. As we progressed through the planning process, I realized it was a far more complicated task than originally anticipated. Raquel and the Wedding Savvy team were recommended to us by a family friend. I am so glad we decided to hire their team. Nia was our assigned coordinator. She is patient, carefully listened to my “vision” for the day, offered honest and useful feedback, and her plans were extremely detailed and organized. She brought a lot of details/ideas to my attention that I wouldn’t have thought of or had initially considered not important. There were a few miscommunications between my fiance and I and she handled those situations patiently and professionally. Nia wasn’t able to make our walk-through at the venue, but we were lucky enough to have Raquel fill in for her. From the relatively small amount of time spent with Raquel, I can confidently say she is an expert and well connected in the wedding world. One of the most helpful things Nia did for us was putting together a well detailed and organized schedule for the day of for vendors, the wedding party and family. This kept everyone on the same page and was especially helpful keeping us on time as we had to change plans on the fly once it started pouring rain that afternoon. Ultimately, I felt our day went off without a hitch and I was able to enjoy our wedding thanks to the work of Nia and her team.” -Addie, Bride
