All who have a role in the wedding (ushers, readers, wedding party, parents, etc.) are expected to be present. In order to arrive on time, please leave plenty of time to find parking and maneuver through Annapolis traffic, especially during the summer months. The rehearsal does not include music.

Zimmerman Wilson House
The Zimmerman-Wilson House, our beautifully restored Victorian home, is available for wedding party use. The house is located on Conduit Street, next to the church’s main building. The first floor, including guest room, bathroom, dining room, kitchen, parlor, and front porch are available for bridal luncheons, showers, and or for getting ready on the day of the ceremony. At the conclusion of use, all furnishings must be returned to their original position, and any and all dishes must be washed and put away. Click here for pictures of the Zimmerman Wilson House.
Smoking is not permitted in any church building or on the church grounds, and the use of alcohol at receptions is limited to wine or wine punch. The wedding party is asked to refrain from the use of alcohol prior to the rehearsal and wedding.
Handicapped parking and elevator access is available in the church driveway for any members or guests of the wedding party. General parking at the church is not available for wedding guests. However, the Noah Hillman Garage located directly across from the church on Duke of Gloucester Street provides plenty of parking.
It is possible to reserve the parking spots in front of the Sanctuary on Duke of Gloucester Street for limousine, party buses, or trolleys on the day of the wedding. Apply to City of Annapolis Parking Enforcement, 308 Chinquapin Round Road, 410.263.7964. The cost is $25 per space and reservations must be made in person.
