The ceremony garden at Chase Court offers friends and family a tranquil, private setting to celebrate a life with a memorial service.
Whatever your tradition, you can feel that the space, inside and out, is sacred space. Everything about Chase Court makes it ideally suited for memorial services.
The ceremony garden is private and peaceful. It’s immediately adjacent to the building, allowing for a quiet place to dwell after the service.
Chase Courts seats 125 in either the garden or the ballroom for a memorial service, enough room to accommodate family, business associates, and professional acquaintances.
Bar service and displayed hors d’oeuvres in the library through one of our approved caterers works very well for memorial services, as does butlered hors d’oeuvre service. The library is also a good place for books of remembrance and self-contained slide shows or other displays. The library overlooks the ceremony garden.
The sign asks, “Please share a memory and attach it to the tree.”
The ballroom is set here for cocktail-style service, with a mix of small (36″-diameter) high and (48″-diameter) low tables. They provide seating for up to a third of the guests—the perfect cocktail-style ratio, to allow and encourage guests to comfortably move through the room.
Mixing the table linen colors makes the room more vibrant, and adds a distinctive look.
Two-station lunch or dinner service with an additional, smaller dessert station works well and looks great in the ballroom.
Chase Court’s traditional gothic architecture is dignified without being stuffy or overbearing. The ballroom comfortably seats 125 for a ceremony or service, with also makes for an effective rain plan. Chase Court is completely modernized, with full air conditioning, wi-fi, and up-to-date utilities.
Chase Court is a splendid example of period architecture with its solid stone construction; arched, diamond leaded-glass windows; delightfully intricate historic woodwork; and soaring ceilings, all in the Gothic style. The building was built in 1879 as the parish house – meetings, events, and in this instance, worship – of Christ Episcopal Church, which was built in 1871 and is still standing (under different ownership) on the corner of Saint Paul and Chase Streets. The building and grounds that comprise Chase Court are now privately owned and are situated in the heart of one of Baltimore’s best neighborhoods, the historic Mount Vernon Cultural District, which is easily accessible from I-95 and I-83.
Chase Court is a beautiful sacred space and an extraordinary historic facility. Please call us at (410) 727-1112 to schedule a visit.
