“The Woodwind II is an amazing setting for a wedding and was such a special venue for the three of us to become a family together. We chose to have our ceremony on the Woodwind II so it would be a treat for our guests to get to go sailing and experience the Chesapeake Bay. Many of our guests have asked us to get married every year so they can go back out sailing and have cocktails on the Woodwind! It truly was perfect!”

“We as well as our guests had an AMAZING time!! Everything ran very smoothly thanks to the planning and the CREW who were absolutely wonderful people! We had them all sign our boards (we had two mats to sign, one from the captain and crew with a great print of the Schooner and one we brought of our own which was a map of Annapolis). The food was very very tasty and is still getting good reviews.”
