Jody was amazing. she worked so well with my husband and I. This reception site was right in downtown Annapolis. It was historic and the huge garden in the back was so pretty. The eating took place under tents and they had a rain plan. However, the weather was perfect. I would recommend this site to anyone.

We just got married two weeks ago and used the paca house as our reception site. It rained the entire time. Jody was super accommodating though and managed to put the sides down for the tent in a flash for us, was super flexible and accommodating to make sure it was a good day for us! She was wonderful, and worked closely without caterer to make sure everything ran smoothly. We barely even noticed the rain with her help, and everyone had a great time! And it obviously provides a beautiful back drop for the entire event.... It has gorgeous grounds and gardens for your guests to explore (and also now has a corn hole set since we left her ours, if you enjoy garden games). So between the actual venue, and Jody being an awesome coordinator and a fun and enthusiastic person to work with, it was a great place to celebrate!

Oh.... And the tent comes with the over all rental, which makes an outdoor wedding way more affordable (awesome!)....and when you are done, you get to walk down to the bars to keep the party going! Only recommendation is there is a noise ordinance for the neighborhood, so you have to be out by 9. I was worried it would also mean that the music wouldn't be loud enough for a dance party, but it was! The dance floor is one one side of the patio and the seating area on the other, the seating area is a little quieter, but they set up a speaker on that side so you can still hear the music, but it's not so loud you can't talk.... And the dance floor is the perfect volume. If you want to have a 4 hour or longer reception though, just make sure you plan around the 9pm rule. Our reception was only 3.5 hours or so, and then we just moved the par downtown and kept going, everyone had a really good time, and the 9pm cut off doesn't put a damper on the celebrations. Just start earlier.

The place, and Jody were great! And We are so glad we went with the Paca house!

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. The downside would be for anyone wanting to have a large wedding, as the venue is limited in size, as well as the fact that the reception cannot go on past 10 PM due to noise restrictions. This was not a problem for us, especially since The Paca House is an easy walking distance to downtown, and my friends and I were able to continue the celebration down the street in downtown Annapolis. I would highly recommend this venue for any friends getting thinking of getting married in Annapolis. Thank you Jody, for everything!

This is the perfect place to have an outdoor wedding. The grounds are beautiful, and people are still talking about how wonderful it was. Jody and her staff were amazing and helped us through all the details. She was very responsive and made sure I had everything I needed. I cannot say enough good things about this venue!! It is also in a great location in Annapolis.

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.

Another reason we chose the Paca House is because of Jody. Jody is the Sales Director and also books and coordinates all the weddings. She is very warm and extremely accommodating. She made the whole planning process easy and she's a total pro. She really has it down to a science and offers great suggestions and ideas...all the while saying, "but you can do whatever you want." On the day of my wedding, I didn't worry about a single thing. Everything was taken care of for us by Jody and her staff. She made sure everything stayed on time and the whole day flowed. She even makes sure the bride and groom get private time together before they're announced.

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

The William Paca house was a beautiful location for our wedding and the weather was perfect. They were extremely accommodating and helpful in planning our service as well. The only downside is that your guests have to stand as they only provide 10 chairs for immediate family and the elderly. It was also a little on the pricey side, but worth every penny.

I fell in love with the William Paca House the first time I visited, and on the day of our wedding it was absolutely perfect. All of our guests commented on how wonderful the place was. And Jodi was so great throughout the whole wedding planning process, she really helped us figure things out. She was a crucial part of the wedding day too, making sure that everything was going as planned. She was always there seeing if I needed anything, playing interference when we were moving from place to place for pictures, and just making sure things were perfect. I know we could not have pulled it off without her.

We had our wedding at the Paca House and it was an amazing, beautiful event. Jody, the director for weddings and events, is a true pro. She was amazing during the planning and implementation of our event. The Paca House is a wonderful, historic backdrop for your wedding and I can't recommend it enough. Since it is a historic site the Paca House does have certain rules, but Jody is very up front about these and is willing to work with you as best she can to get what you want for your day. In the days before the event Jody made sure all of the vendors were on a timeline for delivery and set-up. Most importantly, she made sure on the day of the event we were able to steal 5 minutes away from the reception. She gave us her office and made sure no one bothered us for a few minutes so that we could have a moment alone. It was one of the few times that we had a chance to spend alone that whole day. If you want a fairy-tale wedding in one of the most idyllic settings in Annapolis, then the Paca House is right for you.
