Experience and team dynamics go a long way towards helping you have your dream wedding

There’s no such thing as working alone when it comes to photographing a wedding, and that’s because teaming up with other event professionals gives everyone a chance to add their own expertise. One of the most tried-and-true ways to have the wedding of your dreams is booking with experienced vendors that can oversee details so that you can enjoy yourselves.

Wedding season 2023 has wrapped up for me this year – and what an amazing season it’s been. My final wedding of the year was shot at The Great Room at Savage Mill, with one of my favorite wedding planners, Lexi Schafer, Owner of Events by Lexi who is located in Westminster, MD.

Venue Spotlight: The Great Room at Historic Savage Mill

Not only is it fun to work with one of my favorite wedding planners, it’s always a pleasure shooting a wedding in an amazing venue. I’ve been fortunate to work in some really fantastic event locations throughout Maryland, and The Great Room at Savage Mill is high up on my list of must-see spots.

Located right on the Little Patuxent River in Savage Maryland, the Historic Savage Mill was built in the 1820’s and is full of stunning details. This former textile mill is on the National Historic Record, and the Great Room serves as a beautiful home for your most special occasions.

There’s also:

  • Large dance floor.
  • Tented deck for ceremonies & cocktail hours.
  • Easy to find right off of route 32 and route 1.
  • Many beautiful photo sites inside and out.
  • Free rehearsal times.

The Great Room at Historic Savage Mill is just as dedicated to suiting your own unique wedding needs as we are. Flexibility is king at this location, which is why it’s a local favorite. You’re permitted to use your own wedding vendors or you can avail yourself of their highly experienced Putting On the Ritz event planner/catering who have been running the Great Room for the past 20 years. You can also rent their sister property, the Manor House, for your rehearsal at half price when you book a date.
