About The Mansion At Valley Country Club Wedding Venue

1512 Jeffers Road, Towson, Maryland 21294

The Mansion at Valley Country Club dates back through the centuries to when the Kellogg family first built the estate in 1858. In its early days, the estate was a cattle farm and equestrian property settled on over 500 acres. Decades later, the home was sold to the Donovan Family specifically so they could host some fantastic parties and events. They went straight to work building a ballroom that was opened in 1960. Today, the building serves as a celebration of all things Baltimore, including the Colts and Hall of Famer Art Donovan. 

Details of the Grounds

The Mansion At Valley Country Club offers both indoor and outdoor spaces for your wedding ceremony. When you book your wedding, you will have exclusive access to both the manor and the gardens. The garden is the ideal space for couples seeking an outdoor wedding. Paved walkways lead to lush woodlands where you can exchange your vows. If you would prefer to hold your ceremony elsewhere, the mansion will work with you to find the ideal space for your wedding size. 

For those who would prefer indoor climate control, the mansion has an expansive ballroom that is perfect for your ceremony. With over 3,000 square feet, you can transform it into your dream space. The room has a draped ceiling with custom lighting, so you can create the perfect venue. 

The venue lets you transform the ballroom into a reception space. This area will give you plenty of space to mingle with your guests before you dance the night away. The lighting options also give you a creative way to divide up the different portions of your night.

You can use the veranda or porch outside the mansion for those wanting an outdoor cocktail hour. This allows guests to enjoy signature drinks and gaze out over the meticulously kept gardens. 

The venue has designated bridal suites and groom’s rooms where you can relax before the ceremony begins. These comfortable rooms are equipped with furniture so you can relax before your guests start to arrive. The venue will even stock these rooms with champagne before your event.
