Your love story, brought to life.


We have a diverse choice of wedding venues in the Maryland, Washington, DC and Virginia areas- from waterfront weddings, to outdoor venues, to historic mansions and elegant tents.

Of course, if you prefer, we’re equally at home working with another venue of your choice in the area. Our place or yours, venue coordination is a breeze.


We concentrate on all the wedding planning details, so all you have to do is concentrate on enjoying the most special day of your life.

From our dedicated planning website and tools, to our experienced and thoughtful coordinators, we make planning your wedding as simple as saying “I do”. Stress-free weddings are our specialty.


When you select Catering By Uptown, know you’ll have the benefit of working with the area’s most recommended caterer.

Fabulous food, service and looks are all at your finger tips, and all included. Your only challenge? Choosing from an unlimited selection of delicious menu items, dozens of linen choices, china,  glassware and more.


“We scheduled a tour of Anchor Inn and Celebrations at the Bay, and Anne was the staff person assigned to us. She was so helpful and answered every question I had. She spoke to me like a friend rather than a sales person which I really appreciated. The company is very helpful and responded quickly to every message. Great value and great price!” -Erin Mahoney · getting married on 09/19/2020

“From food to decorations and services, Everything was done to perfection!!! I cannot thank them enough for doing a fantastic job.
I appreciate everyone’s hard work including Shonda, Tracy and the office staff.  Special thank you to Aimee, the event manager who went above and beyond to make my dream wedding come true! She is the Best event manager anyone could ask for! She made sure all my requests were met and re-created the looks I wanted.  I’m beyond impressed with this company and their professional, enthusiastic employees!

Thank you very much for giving me the wedding I have always wanted. I know this was a very stressful time, but you guys made it a time to remember! Our guests wouldn’t stop talking about how beautiful, and perfect everything was. We all had a Blast! – Fera Mo · married on 03/15/2020
