The Ceresville Mansion is a vintage estate and wedding venue located in trendy Frederick, Maryland, and has been serving the greater Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan area couples for 30 years. 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.

The garden space features a stunning reflecting pool and a stately white pergola that perfectly frames couples as they exchange vows and begin their lives together. 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. Inside, the ballroom welcomes guests for a seated wedding reception or cocktail buffet. 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’s 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.

Loved everything about the venue and the food!

Food was incredible good! The Lemon Decor did an excellent job decorating! The value of the meals was incredible even with all the upgrades was totally worth every penny!
Juli was very helpful, she accommodate our needs and the whole process is very easy even if you don't have a wedding planner, they serve your choices in a silver platter to pick your favorite. Definitely go to a public tasting to meet the vendors and taste the food. I change my mind after I did this and made different choices. Our DJ was Malachi and he was soo much fun! Everyone and I mean grandmas and all were in the dance floor. A couple of suggestions for the next bride, just make sure you know where things are going to be, for example at the last minute, we didn't know where the flowers for the cake were left at. Little did I know it was in the refrigerador and the cake vendor had to go out and get some. More than anything I think communication is key as usual and ask lots of question. I am the first one to get married so I didn't know what questions to ask but overall it was an amazing and unforgetable experience for all of us and our guests.

A perfect team for a perfect venue

I don’t even know where to begin. We fell in love with Ceresville Mansion the second to step foot on the property. We had both our ceremony and our reception there in March 11th 2023. We booked them in August of 2021 and they were amazing for a year and a half of emails, thousand of questions, payment plans. Juli answered all of my emails even when I would say two or three in a row and the entire team helped bring our wedding vision to life. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect. Beautiful, light and airy exactly like we had hoped for. Juli and our day of coordinator Haley checked in on us during the day and got us sandwiches or fruit (which they provide!) and made sure I was drinking water. Juli helped make sure that my husband didn’t see me at all, even through windows before our ceremony as we didn’t want to do a first look at all. She held my dress and I walked around the building. She got us drinks during the reception. The bartender kept making sure we had drinks the entire night. The food is amazing. Everything we could think of, they thought of first. Our wedding day was wonderful because we got to marry each other but it was perfect because of the Ceresville Mansion crew.

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!
