Memories of their Special Day

"My husband and I had our ceremony and reception here. It was absolutely beautiful. We looked at several venues and I almost didn't visit the Paca House because I thought it was out of my budget. After looking around I found that the Paca House actually is a nice value. The tents for the reception area are included and they also have some tables and chairs on site. There were no hidden fees and no unexpected rules. Everything was laid out in an easy to understand contract up front. I stress this because a couple of my girlfriends were married this year and had problems with their venues giving them new fees and guidelines through the planning process. That did not happen here.

Our guests loved the garden and we received tons of compliments. It was exactly the kind of casual elegance I was looking for." – Katie, Bride

"When Brian and I walked into the Paca House, Jody greeted us with open arms. We didn't pick the Paca House as our wedding venue, the Paca House picked us. We are so grateful to her, the staff, and Historic Annapolis for supporting and allowing weddings in such a beautiful historic garden. We thank Jody for being the comforting presence in the room, for calming nerves, and for her support and encouragement throughout the process. The work she does changes lives. We thank her for being there for us as we becam husband and wife." Tracy and Brian, Bride and Groom

"The Paca House was the perfect place for my fiance and I to get married. I fell in love with it the moment that I saw it, and it was the ideal setting for our fall outdoor wedding. Jody was instrumental in helping us plan everything and I felt very at ease knowing that she would be handling any issues that would arise. All of our guests were raving about how beautiful the Paca House was, and though many of my guests had gone to school in Annapolis with me, they had never even been in the garden before. The Paca House is like a well kept secret, and I couldn't have been happier getting married and having my cocktail hour and reception there. " – Anonymous

"I could not be happier with my experience at the William Paca House for my wedding. It was beyond beautiful, and they really took care to make sure everything was perfect. Jody is just wonderful, she really went the extra mile. She made sure that I had the "princess moment" as she says, when I stepped out of the doors to walk down the aisle in the garden with my dad. And anything I (or my husband, parents, or bridal party) needed the staff was right there with it for us. It could not have been a more perfect day." – Adrienne, Bride
