Annapolis destination wedding

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

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
