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!”
