Local, MD, DC and VA

Maryland brides, we have some great news for you! If you're looking for a spacious and beautiful (not to mention unique) venue for your wedding, look no further than the George Peabody Library. This little gem in the heart of Baltimore is perfect for couples that favor an elegant and vintage atmosphere with a fun, quirky twist.

Dating back all the way to 1878, this spectacular public library is known for its striking architectural interior, specifically in the Stack Room, which boasts five tiers of cast-iron balconies and houses hundreds of thousands of books. Start with a ceremony here before moving into the Exhibition Gallery for a cocktail hour among the library's rare collection of books.

With space to hold up to 170 guests for a seated dinner with a dance floor, you can return to the beautiful Stack Room for your reception. Choose between two of the property's exclusive caterers for a meal you and your guests won't forget. The Classic Catering People offer choices like crab cake sliders and hibachi stations while Chef's Expressions, a certified green caterer, creates dishes like ravioli in brown butter sauce and chicken roulade.

Plus, the venue comes with some great perks. Renting the space includes all of your tables and chairs as well as a library manager, at least one staff worker, and a security guard, so you can feel confident that you're in great hands on the day of your wedding. There's also a preparation suite available before your ceremony starts, so you can get glammed up with your 'maids and pose for pretty photos in the space.
