Engaged 2/19/18 | Wedding 9/21/19 | Guests: 118
Ceremony: Baltimore, MD | Reception: Gambrills, MD
After getting engaged, I started truly wedding planning Summer 2018. My husband and I were stationed in Germany and came home for a visit. We pr...
obably visited over 20 venues in MD & PA without finding “the one”. A few weeks later one of my bridesmaids let me know that they were opening a new reception venue in Gambrills, MD. After speaking to Lara (events coordinator) she was able to send me the renderings and keeping me posted on when they would start booking wedding receptions. My parents visited the venue October 1, 2018 and we submitted our deposit a few weeks later without even seeing it in person!
Lara had excellent communication skills despite my 6 hour time difference. She always kept me up to date and was able to accommodate face to face meetings when we were able to fly back to the US. We had our tasting and the food was absolutely delicious from Chef Joe & team! During this time Lara let us know that she would be out on maternity leave but her assistant Corrine would be handling our event. Corrine was absolutely excellent and was able to work with us while we in the final weeks of planning.
Corrine & the BWBL staff really gelled well with my other vendors hired to make the reception set up and the event run seamlessly. The Cottage room (aka the war room) was a safe haven for me to privately talk to vendors, take a breath and even use the bathroom away from the hustle of the reception. The Barn (reception area) looked absolutely BEAUTIFUL and set up exactly to my vision. We arrived at 4PM to take Portrait photos out back before the cocktail hour/guest arrival started at 5PM.They went above and beyond with the service from the moment our guests started to arrive. My guests were raving about how beautiful the venue, how delicious the food was and how the drinks were FLOWING all night. Our wedding reception was absolutely perfect. A HUGE thank you to Carlos, Corrine, Lara, Chef Neal, Chef Joe and the entire BWBL staff who staffed our reception, we truly couldn’t thank you enough for all that you’ve done for us.

I would definitely recommend this venue. There are multiple rooms to accommodate to the wedding size of your choice. While touring this venue I saw the different rooms offered. They are ALL absolutely beautiful. Side note- this was recently ren...
ovated from the ground up about a year ago and EVERYTHING is BRAND NEW. The event coordinator, Corrine, was amazing. She was quick to get in touch with me and made everything clear and simple. She was extremely friendly as well. Since we had a smaller guest count, we chose one of the smaller rooms. The tables were arranged in a way that still allowed a space for dancing. All of the decorations, table settings, and food + drinks were included in the price. We did have a hiccup with the sound system at first (fault of our own), but one of the employees came to the rescue and helped us out! A++++ for service. There was a TV in the room we reserved that could show a slideshow. However, the PowerPoint slideshow I made wouldn't show up. Never figured that one out. But hey- it wasn't the end of the world. Every single worker there from the bar tenders, to the servers, to the behind-the-scenes staff, went above any beyond. The food was AMAZIN and they even let us take home our leftovers! The walls are thick enough that we couldn't even hear the wedding in the room next to us either! And even though there are multiple rooms hosting different events, the set up of this place really makes you feel like you and your guests are the only ones there. I don't have a single complaint about this place. You will not regret booking this!
