A stunningly-beautiful wedding venue, indoors and out. Memorable, romantic wedding ceremonies, from just you two to 60 guests. A completely-custom alternative to a cookie-cutter courthouse wedding. Lots of options. We take care of all the details. All at a price you can afford.

Intimate. Authentic. Serene. The simple elegance of traditional, Gothic architecture. The beautiful, private gardens. Everything you could want, with experienced professional planning support.

Celebrations of Life, Memorial Services, & Repasts

Chase Court's building and gardens have the beautiful, sacred feel of a traditional Gothic space while offering a peaceful, non-sectarian sanctuary (Chase Court is privately owned) in the easily-accessible, historic Baltimore neighborhood of Mount Vernon.

We stand ready to help make your celebration of life, memorial service, or repast a special and meaningful experience. Our stunning private garden and our beautiful great hall each seat up to 115 for memorial services, with cocktail-style service for up to 150 guests.

Any one of the five approved caterers from our carefully-chosen catering list will be happy to provide catering services for you.


Our extensive list of recommended professionals includes every possible resource to meet your needs, including A/V rental (we can handle most of your A/V needs in-house), officiants, florists, musicians, transportation, and more.

Live Music Add-On

Live music adds special something to your memorial service, and it sounds great at Chase Court!

While you can, of course, engage your own musicians, we can make it easy and convenient for you, with your choice of harp, violin, voice, viola, cello, bass, flute, or guitar. (Want something else? Ask!).

Live music is available in solo, duo, trio, or quartet form.


All of our musicians are professionals with an extensive music repetoire. They'll consult with you before your event and be happy to perform whatever you like, whether it's specific pieces you've chosen or their own carefully-considered selections from a wide variety of categories, from traditional wedding music like Pachelbel's Canon in D to the The Beatles to the theme from Star Wars.


Electric Quartet…$2,597





Memorial Service Sound System Add-On


We provide a high quality, professional audio system, complete with two wireless microphones (for your leader and readers) for clear, accurate amplification with minimal visual obtrusion into the look and feel of your memorial service.


Our state of the art sound system, including a tiny, wireless, body-mounted microphone, allows your leader to stay in their normal speaking voice, where they will be more comfortable and able to use the full range of their normal inflection. And a second, stand-mounted, hand-held microphone is available for use by readers or others.


Want your pre-recorded service music amplified? We can do that, too! Just bring a phone or tablet or computer and a person to press the right buttons at the right times during your service, and we’ll plug it into our system.


Memorial Service Sound System…$197
