Weddings are always in season in Annapolis and the Chesapeake Bay. Dubbed as one of the East Coast's most romantic towns by Forbes Traveler magazine, Annapolis and the Chesapeake Bay offers breathtaking views, one of a kind historic venues, and memories to last a lifetime at every turn. The City of Flowers by the Bay provides a perfect backdrop for beautiful weddings. Our brick-lined streets, 18th-century Georgian mansions, and magnificent Chesapeake Bay provide the perfect backdrop for your picture perfect wedding.
For a nautical venue with the Chesapeake Bay for a background, try the Annapolis Maritime Museum. Based in the last operating oyster packing plant in the area, our guess is you won't find a more authentic maritime setting for hosting indoor or outdoor ceremonies and receptions.
