Two lives, two hearts; joined together in friendship, united together in love.

This day I will marry my best friend, the one I laugh with, live for and love.


Airport   |   Lodging   |   Directions

AIRPORT:

  • For anyone flying in from out of town you are probably going to want to fly into to Baltimore Washington International Airport (BWI). It's a pretty nice airport, and there are flights to and from LAX all the time.

LODGING:

  • We found a very nice hotel in Frederick, MD which proves to be in a very central location. The hotel is Mainstay Suites on: 7310 Executive Way, Frederick, Maryland  21704 They have a large block of rooms for our wedding party. Call 301-668-4600 and say you are with Jon and Christy's wedding party to reserve your room. The rooms are booked from the 18th through the 20th, but if you want to stay more or less time just tell them that on the phone.
     
    • There are two types of rooms, each $89. The first room has a queen bed and a sleeper sofa, this room would comfortably sleep 4. The second type of room has double beds and a sleeper sofa and would comfortably sleep 6.
       
    • Hotel Details: airconditioned building, complementary breakfast, business center, pets allowed, deposit box and complementary coffee.
       
    • Room Ammenities: internet access, daily maid service, coffe maker, kitchen with dishes, hair dryer, free newspaper, refrigerator, wake-up service, ironing board, iron, TV in bathroom, cable, microwave oven, alarm clock, and many more
       
    • the $89 rate is a significant discount because we purchased a package so be sure to call in your reservation... you won't get as good of a rate on-line

Mainstay Suites to Wedding Site
  • Map quest does a really poor job on this set of directions. It's really simple actually. You simply need to leave the hotel and turn right. Follow that road out to 70 West. Get on 70 West and then take the exit for Alt. 40. Follow alternate 40 till you see the chapel on your right and the inn on your left. (You're on 40 for a while, but don't worry you can't miss the wedding.)
Wedding Site to Mainstay Suites
  • Just follow Alt. 40 back out to 70, get on 70 East and follow it back to Frederick (Exit 54) from there you just stay to the right and follow that back to Mainstay Suites.
