Filled with Colonial charm in the form of cobblestone streets and rows of red brick houses, Annapolis is a city that fully embraces its history – and holds particularly true to its maritime traditions. The US Naval Academy makes its home in the city, alongside a multitude of land-locked attractions. But as pretty as this city is, we know why you’re really here: to plan a wedding. Which is precisely why we’ve collected just a couple of our favorite Annapolis wedding vendors. Let’s review, shall we?

Annapolis Wedding Venues

For an exceptional wedding venue that’s fully invested in the history and ambiance of Annapolis itself, look no further than St. John's College. The Great Hall’s interior balconies, dark wood flooring and chandeliers make for a beautiful indoor ceremony location (or reception site for small gatherings), while the Edgar T. Higgins Dining Hall is all neoclassical structure and beautiful Georgian details. It’s also been called one of the prettiest rooms in the city, and seats up to 140 guests.

Annapolis Wedding Photographers

Located just down the road in Baltimore, Teri of tPoz Photography is a fun-loving photographer with a fast-moving, spontaneous photography style. She also firmly believes that she has the best job on earth – and it shows in her lively and emotion-filled photos.

Annapolis Wedding Cakes

Just a hop, skip, and drive over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge from Annapolis is a family-owned gourmet pastry shop with an extensive portfolio of wedding cakes. Better yet, Peace of Cake is willing to work with you to design a wedding cake that accurately reflects your personality as a couple and matches the details of your special day. We’re finding their “rainbow” cake flavor to be a uniquely tempting option.
