Experience True Elegance At A Baltimore Country Club Wedding

Over the years, country clubs have become pretty popular spots for weddings. When you think about it, it makes a lot of sense. Not only do they give you rolling hills of pristine views, but they were created for high-end hospitality. They know how to be there to give you the day of your dreams! As a Baltimore wedding photographer, I get the unique chance to get a firsthand look at all the best country clubs in the state. If you’re on the search for a positively stunning venue with gorgeous landscaping and top-of-the-line accommodations, I would love to tell you why a Baltimore Country Club wedding might just be right for you. 

About The Baltimore Country Club Wedding Venue

4712 Club Road, Baltimore, Maryland 21210

Baltimore Country Club has spent over 100 years providing people with a luxurious haven where they could escape from the pressures of their day-to-day lives. The center first opened its doors in January of 1898 and quickly became a staple in the community. Right away, the 150-acre venue had over 600 members. The year after opening, it hosted the fifth United States Open Championship in golf. The center was such a success that it soon expanded to Five Farms in Lutherville, Maryland. 

Over the years, it has seen triumphs and tragedies. The 1930s brought two fires that destroyed the house beyond repair. In 1932, the country club was rebuilt, creating a masterpiece of a building that seamlessly mixed together architectural styles from across global history. Since that fateful decade, the club has only gotten better. Today, you’ll find tennis courts, squash courts, pools, and more. The country club has been recognized as a top 50 country club in America as well as a top 100 in the world

Details of the Grounds

The venue offers stunning indoor and outdoor weddings so you can have the perfect day! The interior features the Federal-style Georgian Room and Main Lounge. This space features off-white walls with white archways, a marble fireplace, and a rich red patterned carpet. For couples wanting an outdoor wedding, you can use the North Lawn. The area is surrounded by tall shrubs that provide extra privacy from the world outside. Two stone staircases, as well as a small grassy slope, lead from the main building to the area, and you will be able to set up an aisle as you see fit. 

The Georgian Room is your place for an indoor reception. This elegant space will give your guests plenty of space to celebrate and dance as you toast to the future. If you would prefer to have an outdoor reception, the venue will let you use the Patio overlooking the North Lawn. 

The Patio tends to be a favored spot for cocktail hours. Your guests will have a premium view of the surrounding land as they enjoy signature drinks. For couples looking for something a little extra, the venue allows you to have full-day rentals in the entire house, including the bowling alley.

Specialty Spaces

When you rent the venue, you will have access to separate suites where you can get ready ahead of your event. These rooms have been outfitted to give you a luxurious space to put on the finishing touches and shake off the nerves with your bridal party. 

The venue is equipped to host weddings of all sizes. You can contact them about your wedding size and ensure they’re ready to host your party. 

Baltimore Country Club is an architectural feat that is rich in details that will shine through your wedding. The Georgian Room and Main Lounge feature elegant chandeliers, and you can adjust the lighting for a perfectly moody reception. The brick exterior features white details and gated stairways that lead you from one area of the property to the next. The stone walkways give way to thick shrubs, and ivy wraps around the trees in the yard. While you’re never too far from the golf course, you will feel like you’re in your own private world throughout the entirety of your day.

Photography Opportunities

The Baltimore Country Club gives you plenty of space for your portraits. For those who want to incorporate the city, you’re just five miles from downtown Baltimore, giving you a quick escape if you’d like. The property itself features dense woods near open fields, giving you a magical spot for individual, couple, and family portraits. There are quiet brick walkways and meticulously maintained gardens you can also use for this portion. The get-ready rooms provide plenty of lighting for individual portraits. Finally, the arched covered front porch is the ideal place to take pictures with the venue prominently in the background. 

Wedding Details

Because the Baltimore Country Club wedding venue is private, all events must be hosted or sponsored by a member of the club. From there, the venue is going to help you out every step of the way. They offer two packages: one with a 10-hour rental block and one with an all-day rental starting at 10:00 AM. You will work with event coordinators who will ensure every part of your wedding falls perfectly into place. 

Their skilled catering team is ready to create the best menu for your party. You’ll be able to select from a long list of hors d’oeuvres and entrees. They let you create signature cocktails and give you several options for your bar. The venue offers customized wedding cakes and tons of options, including fondant. They can take care of tables, chairs, china, glassware, and linen. You will have a bridal attendant working with you throughout your wedding.
