Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • This historic estate was once home to William Paca, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. Painstakingly restored and lovingly preserved, the stately home and two-acre 18th-Century English garden are a photographer’s dream.
  • Ceremonies may take place in front of the picturesque summer house, the charming Chippendale-style bridge, or beside the tranquil pond. Follow with cocktails and games on the lawn, and a reception on the romantic terrace.
  • Weddings held here help support Historic Annapolis, the nonprofit organization tasked with acting as caretakers and stewards of this and other essential properties in and around the area.
