The George Peabody Library is a singularly elegant wedding venue centrally located in Baltimore, Maryland adjacent to historic Mount Vernon Place, a well-appointed and photo-friendly public park. This breathtaking Library features a massive skylight perched atop six stories of cast-iron columns overlooking a black & white marble floor. The Library feels at once grand and stately as well as an intimate setting for hosting your wedding.
Following your ceremony amidst the stacks, your guests will enjoy cocktails in the Exhibit Gallery surrounded by rare and storied items from the Library's extensive collection. Afterwards, your guests will reenter the Library to find it utterly transformed into a reception out of a fairy tale, featuring a warmly lit and classically beautiful room brimming with countless volumes of books.
Our staff is dedicated to providing guidance, recommendations, and creative ideas to help customize your experience at the George Peabody Library. Included in the rental are:
- 1 venue manager, at least 1 support staff, and security
- Tables and chairs for your ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception

This is a super gorgeous venue in Baltimore. It is jaw-droppingly stunning at night, with just the right lighting to highlight the architecture. Stop by and you will need to book it!
The Peabody is one of the most beautiful venues in the region, there is little doubt or secret about that. I've photographed there many time and it still wows me every time I walk through the doors. But what I especially love about the place is that along with the beauty of the venue you get a very friendly, helpful and professional staff. Laura, Judy, Linda...they're all wonderful to work with. You might expect an uptight and stuffy staff at such an elegant venue, but thankfully this is far from the case at the Peabody!
Such a unique space to have an event. Definitely check it out!
