Sarah and John were married on July 3rd at the Annapolis Yacht Club, and we were there to provide the music.
What a gorgeous day we had for this event! Mary, the site manager at the Yacht Club, is not only the sweetest person you could ever wish to work with, but she is also very flexible with schedule and set up options. It’s clear why the Yacht Club is easily one of the best sites in Annapolis.
Mary and her team asked us to set up out on the deck with some dinner tables, while the rest of the guests were inside the main dining area. To ensure there was perfect sound coverage for dinner, dancing, and the welcome/blessing, we set up four of our Bose wireless speakers inside. Here are few pics we took of the Bose speakers (marked with red arrows). They fit right into the very tight set up and created great sound!
Sarah and John shared a cool first dance, taking the floor to “I’ll Take You There” by the Staple Singers. Then the party got started!
As you can see, from our pictures, it was a great crowd despite the heat.
Brian Tropiano was there photographing the event for Sarah and John, and we are really looking forward to seeing what are sure to be fabulous images.
The couple departed via water taxi and sparklers, which made for a perfect conclusion to a sensational event!
In the middle of this heat wave, it’s hard to remember what the DC area was like in February!
Amidst record setting snowstorms, on February 6th, my clients Alyssa and Michael were celebrating their wedding in Annapolis at the Marriott.
In all of my 20 years in the DC area, I have never seen so much white stuff at one of my weddings. To make sure I wouldn’t miss their Saturday wedding, I came down to Annapolis on Friday before the snow hit, and I am so glad I did. The roads were nearly impassable the next day!
Alyssa and her parents were so sweet throughout the entire process, handling once-in-a-lifetime wedding weather conditions with such good humor and poise. Honestly, I can’t imagine anyone else handling it better! To accommodate the winter wonderland, we made some changes here and there, but the event still went off perfectly.
The Annapolis Marriott also went above and beyond to make sure Alyssa, Michael, their family, and friends celebrated in comfort. Everything was so flawless inside, you never would have known there was 30” of snow outside!
We set up two of the Bose wireless speakers in the hall area for cocktail coverage (marked with red arrows in the images), and whether it was the weather or the fun crowd or both, everyone at the wedding wanted to dance!
Here are a few shots I took myself – can you believe how much snow there was?
