Built in the late 1800s, the mansion is situated on 26 acres bordered by the Monocacy River. At this elegant and historic destination, couples will find a vintage mansion surrounded by custom landscaping, a wisteria-covered pergola overlooking a reflecting pool, and a grand ballroom with a hardwood dance floor. The ballroom allows for several set-up options to match the vision of your wedding.

Couples have the option to take wedding portraits on the 26-acre property with mountain views or with the grand manor house in the background.

The large windows let the natural light stream through, adding depth to the surrounding white walls and complimenting the columns with ornamental gold capitals.

History

This historic mansion was built in 1888 on a tract of land originally known as Dulaney鈥檚 Lot, which has a rich history tracing back to 1724. The land was granted to General Otho Williams in the 1780s. Upon it, he built the Ceresville grist mill, the original Mansion house, and a sawmill. Edward Shriner, who bought the property from Williams in 1816, built the Ceresville Mansion in 1888 as a wedding anniversary gift to his wife.

    Ceresville Mansion is an all-in-one gem!

    Juli Rosenberry and the Ceresville staff were incredible throughout our wedding journey. Juli kept in constant contact, was transparent about venue and food costs, and helped us get in touch with their preferred vendors. Ceresville made it so easy, having both the gorgeous venue, catering, and a vendor package available (DJ, Videographer, Photographer, Flowers, Decor, Limo service, plus options to add more services, so we could customize to our liking), so the planning process was straightforward, and as easy as possible!
    The rehearsal was flawless, with Juli working easily with our wedding planner, and then the day of the wedding, everything was beautifully orchestrated. The food was incredible (seriously - don't sleep on the Mac & cheese or crab dip appetizer stations!), service was impeccable (Judy made sure my folks and we got extra Mac & cheese). We're so grateful to Juli and the Ceresville Mansion staff!

    Our Perfect Fall Wedding!

    Our wedding on 10/22/2022 was absolutely perfect and it's largely due to the hard work and dedicated staff at Ceresville Mansion. Juli, our coordinator, was absolutely phenomenal from our first tour of the Mansion to the very end of our wedding reception. She made sure every question we had was answered, and worked directly with us to recommend vendors, food and drinks, even helping us design our seating chart layout! She made sure everything was perfect and that everyone had an absolute blast at our wedding. Haley, our day-of coordinator, was also amazing! She ran our ceremony rehearsal, ensuring that everything was set and ready to go for the big day. During the wedding, she made sure we stayed on track and stuck to the timeline, and everything went as planned!

    The Mansion itself is absolutely beautiful and the perfect backdrop for a timeless and classic wedding. Planning was made easy because it is an all-inclusive venue. We didn't have to worry about coordinating outside vendors because they came as part of the package. This helped take away a lot of the stress of wedding planning.

    The food was SPECTACULAR! Everything is of the highest quality, and no guests were left hungry! One specific item our guests raved about was the lobster mac and cheese, which we offered as a late night snack. It was a huge hit and gave our guests the energy to dance late into the night!

    We are so grateful to the Ceresville Mansion staff for all of their hard work. Our big day was perfect, we could not have picked a better venue and highly recommend Ceresville for anyone looking to plan a wedding or any event.

    Wonderful Venue

    My husband and I had our ceremony and reception at Ceresville Mansion. We had an amazing experience from the time of inquiry until the very end of our wedding. They were very patient as I had to make a lot of changes throughout the process due to the highs and lows of the pandemic. Our wedding planner, Kate, was on top of helping us through the planning process. Haley was our day of coordinator who helped me so much on our wedding day! I was a nervous wreck but she was able to guide me through everything. I am so happy we choose Ceresville Mansion as the venue to celebrate the happiest day of my life.
