Behind the Scenes at Chase Court in Baltimore


Here’s a little behind the scenes at Chase Court! I’m David Egan, and I’m working on the wrought iron fence that surrounds Chase Court, scraping the gorgeous 145-year-old fleur-de-lis and other ornamentation down to the metal in preparation for fresh new paint. I’ve been the proprietor and steward of Chase Court for 14 years, pouring heart and soul into this magnificent gothic building and the gardens that surround it. I’m one of the few owner-operators of wedding and event venues in Baltimore. I love what I do!

Before Chase Court I was a commercial photographer, making images for potters, weavers, jewelers, and other craft artists. As you might guess, I’ve made lots of photographs of Chase Court and the events held here. You can see many of them here on and several hundred more on Instagram and Flickr, and of course, Pinterest!

I am, by the way, a native New Englander who loves fried clams in the way that Marylanders love steamed crabs! Oh, and dark chocolate…

One of the things that defines my life (besides chocolate), and by extension Chase Court, is being welcoming and affirming across gender, spirituality, and lifestyle. There have been over 50 same-sex weddings and commitment ceremonies at Chase Court! My joy is in supporting and holding dear all of the couples that come through my door, melting their stress away, and providing all of the resources–including this extensive Chase Court website–to help them have the wedding they want.

So, we don’t do cookie-cutter weddings at Chase Court. It’s not a wedding factory. What we do are weddings that reflect our couples’ lives, in a space with a beautiful medieval European vibe. If you’re looking for a meaningful ceremony and a great party in an incredible space, take a look through this website and give me a call at (410) 727-1112. I’d love to help you get just what you want!
