We recently got married Labor Day weekend and 3 days before our wedding, Michele let us know there was going to be a bike race on the day of our wedding. She said she had no idea about it however all of our other vendors had known about the rac...
e and were planning accordingly. The Maryland Cycling Classic, the BIGGEST one day bike race in the US had been announced several months before. My partner and I live in Boston and we chose this venue for the look and also the expertise and convenience of vendors who had a ton of experience working the venue and knowing the area. Leading up to the wedding date, Michele had been helpful and prompt with replying to emails.
On the day of the wedding, the race ended up delaying our start time by 45 minutes. We had family members outside coordinating and negotiating with police officers to figure out how to allow guests access to the venue because Falls Road was blocked off. While most of our guests are able bodied and resourceful in being able to find alternate parking and walking, we had several handicapped and elderly family members had to rush and walk much farther than expected on a VERY hot day. We also had several guests turn around and go home because they could not access the venue or find alternate parking.
Our guests literally did not have access to the venue and Michele was NOT HELPFUL. We had family members and friends running around, directing driving and walking guests of where to go, negotiating with police officers. Michele stayed inside, did not offer assistance, did not coordinate with police officers or provide staff to do so, did not provide any compensation and generally was rude to our family members and friends that were trying to coordinate all of this. Prior, I specifically asked her to provide contingency plans for if the race was going to interfere with our wedding, including alternate parking and all she provided was very minimal instruction on what roads may be closed off.
Certainly we do not fault Michele for there being a huge bike race on our wedding day, however we do expect our venue coordinator to know what’s going on in the community that may affect our very expensive use of space and also provide access to that space. We actually had paid for an additional hour of venue rental for $750 and basically lost that time because we had to start late. Post wedding, we emailed letting her know how upset and disappointed we were with her lack of action and asked to be compensated. We lost about an hour of rental use, were not able to take our sunset photos because we were strapped for time, incurred significant undue stress caused for mostly our immediate family members as they were trying to coordinate guest arrivals, the undue stress and safety concerns for our elderly and handicap guests trying to access our venue, and undue stress for us as we had to rush through the evening events. It’s been a month and Michele has NOT responded or reached out.
At the end of the day, the venue looked lovely, all of our vendors were AMAZING and our guests said they had a great time. Ashley and the Copper Kitchen team (one of the exclusive caterers) did an amazing job and could not recommend them enough. I think if the bike race had not been a variable, I would be leaving a 5 star review. However if you want a venue coordinator that is supportive and will have your back if an extraordinary circumstance arises, I wholeheartedly DO NOT recommend this venue.

We LOVED this beautiful venue with more than enough space for our 130 guests. Beautiful old brick and mortar style with tons of great outdoor places for photos of the party around the property. We highly recommend this venue to anyone looking.

ut. Leading up to the wedding, Michele was always responsive, even with my small, minor questions. Day-of my wedding, if anything went wrong, I literally have no idea- her coordination with the other venders was so seamless. Other info: the Dye House has two exclusive caterers to chose from, both of which can accommodate all dietary restrictions (and food was amazing, but that's a separate review!) The Dye House also has their own tables and chairs (nice chairs!), so no need for added rentals (unless you want them). Also, we made the call based on a real bad 100+ Baltimore heatwave to have the ceremony inside, and our inside ceremony was just as amazing (if not more beautiful!) than the original outdoor plan. You seriously will not regret having your wedding at the Dye House

This venue is so beautiful it pretty much speaks for itself. Then, you add Michele’s service and assistance and it’s pretty much perfect. We had 150 people and felt comfortable. Not too crowded or too bare. The space was open so everyone could ...
mingle in close proximity while still allowing space for guests to enjoy the evening however they wished. The preferred vendors on the dye house’s list were selected for a reason. Everyone is the best of the best just like this spectacular venue. I wouldn’t have wanted to get married anywhere else! Thanks again to Michele and the Dye house!

d I plan our massive ceremony/reception while I was deployed overseas.
This is the perfect venue for a quaint outdoor ceremony and IF you're not down with some rain on your wedding day, the Dye House's ability to pull off a last minute switch to an indoor ceremony is surreal. If you're looking for an indoor ceremony, you can never go wrong with exposed brick, industrial detail of old Baltimore and beautiful floor to ceiling windows.
The reception rooms were absolutely perfect for our 115 guest wedding, a dj set up, a giant desert bar and additional bar by the dance floor. If you're hoping to capture the heart of Baltimore and rustic, industrial vibes of Ellicott City, look no further.

Best wedding venue in Baltimore.
Michele, Director of Events at the Dye House, was such a pleasure to work with. She is extremely organized, knowledgeable, friendly, detail-oriented, and cares about each and every one of the couples she works ...
with. It was a bit stressful at times planning our wedding during COVID, but Michele was flexible and even let us select a Plan B wedding date in the event that we needed to postpone our wedding. This definitely put our minds at ease and gave us the reassurance that we selected the right venue!
The Dye House may seem a bit pricey at first, but it’s an all-in-one package where we were able to get married and have our cocktail hour and reception at the venue. They also just built a large outdoor patio in the back which we were extremely happy about because we utilized it on our wedding day, which turned out to be gorgeous weather!
Michele worked with all of our vendors to ensure our wedding day was beautiful and I couldn’t recommend her and the Dye House enough.
