When my husband and I decided that we wanted to get married in Baltimore, I started to search for unique wedding reception venues. On a whim, I looked up private events at the B&O and saw that they did weddings. From that moment, I was completely sold and I didn't want to have my reception anywhere else. Kathy, the events coordinator at the B&O was fabulous to work with. She is a VERY busy lady, but always on top of things and makes you feel like you're her #1 priority when you're meeting with her. On the day of the wedding, everything down to the smallest detail was perfect and exactly as we had discussed. Our guests said that the B&O was the coolest wedding venue that they had ever been to, and everyone had so much fun! There was so much to do during the wedding - guests had fun exploring the train cars, walking around the museum, and taking "old time" photos in front of one of the engines with vintage props. The B&O will always have a special place in our hearts now. I'm just so appreciative to Kathy and everyone who works there for making our wedding a night to remember and for preserving (and helping to show off!) an important piece of Baltimore's history!Sent on 12/28/2016

When my husband and I got engaged we wanted to find a place that was fun and unique in Baltimore. Neither of us had ever been to the B &O railroad museum but randomly found it on the internet (thanks, Google!) while looking at other museums around the city. We went for a tour and were blown away!!!! It is beautiful in the roundhouse, truly breathtaking! The trains, flags, and high ceilings make for a beautiful backdrop! Kathy Hargest who is in charge of running the events is AMAZING!!! She is so so organized and makes you feel so calm and relaxed about your special day because she has everything under control! She was amazing to work with!! :) She was also great with working with the vendors - we had a walk through with our caterer and her and with our photographer.
On our wedding day, our guests LOVED the venue! They enjoyed checking out the trains during cocktail hour and seeing how beautiful the museum is when it is lit up at night! I honestly loved it and would very much recommend this venue!! It was awesome!!!Sent on 04/19/2018

When we got engaged we knew we wanted a unique venue in Baltimore City, and we got all of that and more with the B&O. When we walked in to the venue we knew we had to have our wedding there. It is absolutely beautiful, from the cathedral round ceiling to all of the trains surrounding where your guest sit. We worked with Kathy and she was awesome, very professional and gets back to you very quickly. She was there the day of, and after the wedding they even sent us a CD of pictures they took during our reception, which was very kind of them. Great venue, amazing coordinator (Kathy), and all around a perfect experience.Sent on 09/27/2015
