We had an absolutely perfect day. Mid-August can be tricky in the Baltimore-DC area, but the sun was shining, there was a nice breeze, the high was 84 with low humidity, and the night was cool with a full moon and partial eclipse to boot! Wedding mapper was a real find for us. Even our in-town guests loved using it!
Michelle was the best decision we made for the whole wedding! We did all the planning ourselves, but she painstakingly organized the day for us crystallize the details and totally organized the day for us, so all we had to do that day was show up and enjoy!
Nice venue. Food was much better at the event than during the tastings. The staff that night was great, but you really have to stay on top of them before the event, and they don't "volunteer" information. You have to ask a lot of questions. They also can seem rude and standoffish, but if you get past that, you can have a great event here.
Rob took a ton of pictures, although we had asked for pictures of every table and he did not get those. What he did get was good quality. We asked and contracted for 2 photographers but really only got 1. Good pricing and you get unlimited use of all the pictures.
Good vendor. Would highly recommend. The only problem we had was the shuttle driver got lost on the first trip from the hotel to the reception so we had to delay the start of some events.
We had our hearts set on a cake shaped like a sandcastle but couldn't afford the high price tag of Charm City and the like. Adrienne totally delivered!
Could use a coat of paint and some more flowers in the summer. Make sure your limo driver has great directions and isn't going by GPS!
All of our out-of-town guests remarked on how fabulously attentive and helpful and friendly the staff was at this hotel. It's an all-suite hotel and they extended the block rate for people who wanted to stay extra days for sightseeing. No bar, but free hot breakfast. Reasonably priced and clean and nice, but definitely not fancy. Great if you have a lot of families coming.
