Located in a serene and timeless tree-lined setting just north of downtown Baltimore, Evergreen Museum & Library provides a diverse and customizable array of outdoor and indoor settings for your wedding day. The estate features a magnificent 19th-century Gilded Age Mansion surrounded by elegant and manicured gardens and a sprawling terrace, perfect for a wedding ceremony and cocktail hour, and a charming Carriage House which features exposed brick, original woodwork, and a custom tented patio, a beautiful indoor location for dinner and dancing.
Terrace & Gardens
Evergreen Museum & Library is a nationally registered historic property that boasts beautifully maintained grounds reminiscent of the European countryside for ceremonies and outdoor celebrations. For almost 75 years (1878-1952), Evergreen was the elegant country retreat of Baltimore’s civic-minded Garrett family, and the grounds showcase the family’s impeccable eye for aesthetics. The centerpiece to the gardens is a regal stone fountain that provides a timeless backdrop for exchanging vows. The adjoining Terrace—with its hand-wrought iron railings, seasonal flowering gardens, and exquisite Tiffany glass and metal awning—provides an incredible atmosphere for sipping cocktails. A limited number of times per year, the gardens can be tented for larger celebrations.
The Carriage House provides an inviting and unique indoor space for dinner, dancing, and festivities. Rental of the Carriage House includes a tented patio that encloses an original brick façade, two oversized green wooden carriage doors, a wood-paneled Carriage Room and access to the stables. There are numerous options for customizing the space and creating a unique wedding reception. The Carriage House also can be utilized to host indoor ceremonies, cocktail hours, and receptions and provides a rain location for outdoor events.
The Carriage House Patio is tented March through December. When the tent is down during the winter months, interior spaces can accommodate 150 guests seated and 225 standing.
