I'm David Egan, proprietor and steward of the castle at Chase Court, a gothic wedding venue in Baltimore! Weddings are what I do. I even write a newspaper column called Getting The Wedding You Want.

Couples come to Chase Court looking for something different, whether it’s unique architecture (1879!) or a different feel. Realness. They want a nice ceremony and a great party with their friends and family. I'm here to help you get the wedding that YOU want!


Welcome to Chase Court


Chase Court is great for small weddings! There’s a woodsy, private garden for your ceremony, a great rain plan, and a stunning gothic ballroom (or if you’re a Harry Potter fan like I am, the great hall) for your reception. Your guests can be indoor and outdoors, as they like, enjoying the party!

We comfortably accommodate a maximum of 125 guests seated for dinner or 150 guests served cocktail-style. We’re equally good at very small weddings (see "Elopements," below). No matter the size of your wedding, you’ll get experienced, professional support from our first contact, right on through your wedding. Read More…

There are all kinds of reasons to have a small and intimate wedding, anywhere from just you two to 45 guests! The Chase Court Elopement Packages give you an exquisite, custom wedding ceremony, with lots of options from which to pick and choose, including a short, cocktail-style reception. The best thing? It’s all turnkey. You write one check and everything is done for you! Read More…


Same-sex weddings are near and dear to my heart. Chase Court has been the venue for nearly 70 same-sex weddings for couples from nine states! I write a column about weddings called Getting The Wedding You Want for Baltimore OUTloud, Maryland’s LGBT newspaper.


Are you ready to make the unbreakable vow? With its high gray ceiling, tall arched leaded-glass windows, original iron hanging chandeliers, and gothic details, the Great Hall at Chase Court pays more than a passing resemblance to the Great Hall at Hogwarts! We’ve hosted fantastic Harry Potter-themed weddings, from little touches to full-on, and even a Yule Ball. 


Looking for a unique venue to host your corporate holiday party? Want something unique  and elegant (without being stuffy) for your guests that they haven’t seen? Chase Court will wow everybody! 


Chase Court’s private ceremony garden and ballroom each seat up to 115 for memorial services. We provide the size, privacy, and dignified sacred setting that is often difficult to find. 


Chase Court is an experienced location, excellent for filming, holding and catering, make-up, and wardrobe. Credits: VEEP, 2013; My One and Only, 2008; The Wire, 2004; Something The Lord Made, 2004; The Wire, 2003.
