We had our wedding on Labor Day of this year and planned the wedding in less than 6 months all the way from Alabama. Trish Flora was our coordinator and made planning the wedding planning and the wedding day go as smoothly as possible. She was very responsive and answered all questions. The food was amazing and the rooms there are so elegant and luxurious. I loved how so much was included with this venue, making planning the wedding from afar with a short time limit easier with amazing results! After the ceremony, they make sure they have a bartender and hourdourves waiting for you before the cocktail hour to wind down and just take everything all in. The wait staff were attentive and polite, the bartender made amazing drinks all night. On the wedding day, they added so much to our original wedding decor to make the ambiance and decoration all the more beautiful. We had an amazing wedding and I thank Antrim 1844 for making that happen. We look forward to coming back for our anniversary or just a quick get away and remember our amazing wedding here.
We recently got married at the Antrim in August 2015, and everything about it was perfect! Trish Flora was our wedding coordinator, and she did a great job helping us organize everything from the day we booked our wedding a year prior all the way up til the day of. It was a nice perk to get a wedding coordinator automatically when you book your wedding at the Antrim. The food was great! My husband, who is a foodie, really enjoyed meeting with the Chef to help pick out the menu (but we were disappointed when we weren't able to try all of the hor dourves at our cocktail hour). The Antrim is absolutely beautiful, and the staff were all really great to help us make it a very special weekend. Make sure to ask about the accommodations if you would like your guests to stay at the Antrim for your wedding weekend. It is a little complicated in that you need to contract the houses a few months ahead of time and then you are responsible for filling those rooms with your guests. If you don't contract the rooms ahead of time then the rooms open to the public a few months before, and you may not get the houses you want. Overall, everything about the Antrim was perfect for our wedding!
I recently got married at the Antrim 1844, and I can honestly say, I would not have chosen any other venue. The Antrim was absolutely perfect! Trish Flora was our coordinator, and she was spectacular to work with, as she attended to every detail throughout the months leading up to the wedding, and of course on the wedding day. My entire wedding was tailored and planned according to how I envisioned it, and the Antrim staff far exceeded my expectations, weaving in their own touches of luxury and finesse. Everything from the excellent food, to the romantic ambiance, to the impeccable personable service, to the beautiful grounds was far beyond anything I ever dreamed of for my wedding day. The Antrim embodies classical, Victorian elegance that cannot be found anywhere else, so I would highly recommend this beautiful, historical venue to anyone. All of my guests are still raving about how amazing the wedding was, and they said they would certainly return on their own for a weekend getaway. I know my husband and I will be spending every anniversary at this magical place where we made the most incredible memories of our lives. Thank you to everyone at the Antrim for making my wedding day a fairy tale. Thank you for your commitment to fine dining, elegant tradition, and unsurpassed customer service. The Antrim now holds a very special place in my and my husband’s hearts.
Our wedding at the Antrim was flawless. Such a beautiful venue and the day was totally stress free. Our wedding coordinator, Beth, was so organized and made the day run smoothly. If you are looking for a beautiful garden wedding venue- this is your place! I was still able to add my own flare and made many of my own decorations but the staff at the Antrim set everything up for me. My guests would not stop raving about the servers and quality of the food- delicious! You won't make a mistake if you book your wedding here!
I got married here in late June and cannot say enough good things about it! Elizabeth was my wedding coordinator at the Antrim, and she is truly AMAZING! She is cool, calm, collected, and the most helpful person I've ever met. Any time I had a concern I could call or email her and she responded so quickly with an answer. She met with me on many occasions and made sure everything flowed perfectly. I was concerned about it raining on my wedding day, and it rained 4 inches! BUT all was well because Elizabeth recommended I get a tent just in case, which I did, which saved the day. I honestly could not have done it without her!
My fiance and I met with the Chef a few months before the wedding and decided what food we would have at the wedding, and then we had dinner at the Smokehouse Restaurant where they served us the meal- and the food is so delicious at the Antrim! I had 150 guests and SO many people mentioned how good the food was. Also, the bar in the mansion is open until 1AM, so after the wedding we went there and we had arranged to have "late night" food of sliders, pulled pork sandwiches, chips and guac, and pizza.
The scenery is perfect at the Antrim during any season, and there are several options for ceremony sites (elm tree, rose garden, etc). We had our reception inside pavilion and it was perfect. I hardly had to do any additional decorating aside from the centerpieces and ceiling drape because it is such a beautiful venue.
My now husband and I plan on going to the Antrim for dinner every year on our anniversary!
We selected Antrim 1844 for our Son and Daughter-in-law's Wedding because of it's beautiful and charming setting. We worked with Beth, Antrim's Wedding Coordinator, and she helped guide us through every detail of our Children's Wedding. Beth was super organized, sweet, and accessible. The result was an amazing "Storybook Like" Wedding Ceremony in the Formal Garden followed by a dinner and dance reception in their beautiful Ballroom. Dinner and Hor doerves were excellent!!! Hotel and wait staff were 100% professional and polite. We received compliment after compliment during the wedding and after!
I trusted Antrim to do a wonderful job...... and they did!!
Our wedding was at the Antrim last weekend and the entire experience was fabulous. Trish Flora and all of the staff at the Antrim were great to work with - they were friendly and accommodating and made the wedding planning process simple and fun. If you are looking for a "one stop shop" venue, this is your place. I wouldn't change a thing about our wedding looking back.
We had an excellent experience working with Trish and the team at Antrim. I had to plan my wedding with limited time and from a different state, so we decided to have the wedding at Antrim because they do everything for you, except provide the wedding cake. The staff is very professional. The Mansion is beautiful and a great backdrop for photographs. The garden room where the ceremony and reception were held is plain, which allows you to transform the room to fit your personal style. We loved that our guests stayed on the property with us and were able to enjoy the pub for an afterparty and breakfast the day after.
This is the perfect place for a wedding! The staff is fantastic and the co-ordinator even help to facilitate space for the band, whose leader thought it too small.
I had my rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception all at the Antrim. First of all I have been going to the Antrim with my family since I was 16 for birthdays/ anniversaries/ other special occasions and I knew the Antrim was the only place I wanted to get married. The Antrim is absolutely breathtaking during all the seasons. The staff is very welcoming and accommodating. I've never had anything but exceptional meals at the Antrim.
Trish, our wedding coordinator, was an absolute pleasure to work with!! Trish is very professional and knowledgeable. Trish was always available to answer any questions I had, was able to give great recommendations and the best part is she was super calm and was able to resolve any issues/conflicts that came up during the rehearsal and the wedding day. I cannot say enough good things about Trish, loved her!!!
Rehearsal was a perfect start to the wedding weekend, food was amazing and we even were able to have a whole room to ourselves.
Of course getting married on the biggest snow day of the year will always present some challenges. I had major issues with the shuttle I contracted with (no relationship with the Antrim) to bring my guests, however, Trish took care of everything and made sure guests arrived and were picked up afterwards. The ceremony was absolutely gorgeous. Chef Spencer provided amazing food, soo many guests said it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding. The reception was absolutely beautiful, the staff were amazing, Rita our bartender was an absolute gem. There is absolutely nothing negative I could say about my experience with the Antrim; I would highly recommend the Antrim, it is truly a magical place.
Our daughter had an evening wedding at the Antrim 1844 on December 14, 2014. It was the most amazing wedding from start to finish. First of all, anyone marrying at the Antrim in December will benefit from the beautiful Christmas decorations all around the property. The Christmas trees in the drawing rooms of the mansion were totally amazing and only enhanced the beauty of the photographs. The pavilion looked amazing with, again, all of the Christmas decorations. Everything was perfect from the ceremony to the sparkler send-off. Our wedding coordinator, Beth Pumphrey, couldn't have been better. She was so helpful and responsive to all of our questions and concerns. We had no worries that the day would be perfect. She was there from the beginning to the end ensuring that everything went smoothly and without a hitch. Of course, the food was outstanding! Also, the bridal suite was so beautiful and inviting, I can't imagine any bride not wanting to spend her first night there. If you truly want to see how beautiful this day was, take a look at the photographer's website (www.jennifersmutek.com) under blog.
This is hands down the best venue to have your wedding! We fell in love with it the first time we went and didn't look anywhere else. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and there are so many different photo opportunities and so much history. The staff is amazing and Beth Pumphrey who was our wedding coordinator made everything so easy and was so responsive to the millions of questions we had through out the planning process. Chef Spencer also makes amazing food and has so many ideas to make the food you love for your special night. Highley recommend!!!!
I HIGHLY recommend the Antrim 1844 Country House Hotel to anyone planning a wedding. Our wedding coordinator, Trish, was on top of her game from the planning to running the rehearsal to making sure that everyone was right where they were supposed to be the entire day of the wedding. The food is incredible, the property is gorgeous, the rooms are awesome, and the entire place is like a fairytale setting. The staff is exceptional, and you can't get the organization and professionalism for that price anywhere else. As a bride planning the entire event from California, I am very thankful for Trish. She did such a wonderful job and we owe her so much. My husband and I already want to go back! Such a wonderful venue, I can't praise them enough.
This venue is absolutely beautiful. We were going for a vintage/garden theme with our wedding so this definitely fit all of the requirements. Our guest could not stop complimenting on how beautiful the venue was. And that our wedding was the best they've ever been to. I highly recommend staying at the venue in one of the mansion bedrooms. We had the mansion booked for the whole weekend for our parents and the wedding party. This allowed us to have breakfast together every morning and for everyone to already be at the venue for the rehearsal dinner. The food was excellent. Best food I've had in a really long time. Definitely not your typically bland wedding food. We'll definitely be booking this venue to celebrate our future anniversaries.
Beth was our wedding coordinator. She was amazing to work with. On our wedding day she made everything way better than I expected for our reception. She picked up my boxes of items that I had brought and arranged them beautifully. Everything ran smoothly the entire day. My guests told me it was the best wedding they had ever been to. The food was perfect and the staff was very professional. I could have not asked for anything more.
I cannot say enough about Antrim 1844 and the wonderful experience we had for my daughter's recent wedding. Everything from the venue, staff, rooms, and catering were 100% top notch. Our coordinator Elizabeth F was truly a lifesaver and just made sure everything was perfect that day from setting up the reception to the minute by minute details of the day. She was amazing. Having everything in one place is wonderful. I would highly recommend the Antrim to anyone looking for the best wedding venue in Maryland.
Thank you - One Happy Mother of the Bride (J)
