Preparation for the Wedding
My wedding is set for 10/10/20. So far in the planning process, the Barn and Lodge has been an incredible venue to work with. We love Lara and all her staff. Very excited to see how the day turns out!Sent on 09/05/2019

We were so lucky to have Blackwall Barn & Lodge as our wedding venue. The planners made everything so easy, the food was amazing, and the space itself is just stunning. We didn't have to add much decor since it is already gorgeous, so instead we were able to spend those extra dollars on little touches that were personalized to my husband and I! The staff was so helpful and friendly, and the bartender literally ran over to our sweetheart table with a drink when he realized my husband had left his drink outside before the welcome toast. I would absolutely recommend this space to ANYONE!Sent on 10/16/2019

Best New/Modern/Romantic Reception Venue!
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 probably 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 lets 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.
