Authentic (1879!). Comforting. Stunningly beautiful. Real. And all the modern conveniences you want.
We're LGBTQ-supportive and affirmative, with over 70 same-sex weddings thus far! Every possible spirituality and non-spirituality is welcome. Cosplay happens. Relaxed, fun parties (aka receptions) are a thing here!
You get the knowledge, resources, and attention of a venue owner. Hi! I'm David Egan, proprietor and steward of the castle. I've lived and breathed weddings through 18 years and over seven hundred weddings. I even write a newspaper column called Getting The Wedding You Want!
Welcome to Chase Court
There’s a woodsy, private garden for your ceremony, a great rain plan, and a stunning gothic great hall (which you'll especially love if you’re a Harry Potter fan)! for your reception. Your guests can be indoor and outdoors, as they like, enjoying the party!
Chase Court comfortably and realistically accommodates 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…
ELOPEMENTS (AKA MICROWEDDINGS)
We do a lot of elopement ceremonies at Chase Court. In fact, we've won awards for it!
“Elopement" in this case is a term of art, since it can be anywhere from just the two of you up to 60 guests. An elopement is a wonderful way to have your wedding in a beautiful place, inside or in the ceremony garden, with a wonderful long list of available options. You can have a custom ceremony, photography, flowers, live music, video, a reception, and more. The whole idea is to create a beautiful, memorable wedding with all the things you want, at a price you can afford.
Oh, and the best thing? It’s all turnkey. We put everything together for you. There are eleven different elopement packages, with lots of options for you to use if you like to create your own custom wedding. Read More…
LGBTQi+ and Inclusivity
Same-sex weddings are near and dear to our heart. Chase Court has been the venue for over 70 same-sex weddings for couples from nine states! David even writes a column about weddings called Getting The Wedding You Want for Baltimore OUTloud, Maryland’s LGBT newspaper.
We welcome, honor, and affirm couples whose spirituality, sexuality, gender identities, or ways of being are less accepted elsewhere.
HARRY POTTER (AND OTHER) THEMED WEDDINGS
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. Going in another direction? We've done (and encouraged!) Goth, Renaissance, Steampunk, Gatsby, Anime, Game of Thrones, and more!
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!
