What can even be said about the Peabody? The venue is breathtaking without even a decoration. Add flowers and lighting and you are in something out of a fantasy. If you are a bibliophile like my husband and I, there is nowhere better. This is the venue of your dreams.Sent on 03/26/2017
But the Peabody is wonderful not only for its beauty, but for its staff. For a bride planning without a wedding planner, they were so accommodating to my family and I, even setting up an extra meeting for coordination just to alleviate some of our concerns. I cannot imagine a better venue than the Peabody Library.

The George Peabody Library is such a beautiful and unique place for a wedding that it requires very little, if any, additional decorations. The event coordinating team was very professional, accommodating and easy to work. A big THANK YOU to them for making our wedding dream come true!Sent on 03/24/2019

Breathtaking venue, wonderful staff
There are no words to describe the majesty of the Peabody Library. It is truly such a stunning venue. I could not imagine celebrating our love anywhere else. There were times throughout the night that I just had to stop and drink in the library. I would look around and feel such immense happiness that we chose to celebrate in a place full of such wonder and amazement. The staff were beyond helpful. From planning a walk-through to organzing the drop off and load up of several items, including an 8-foot book, they were always available. I never had to stress because of lack of communication. I never felt my day was just one of many for them. They truly made us feel like our day was as special to them as it was to us. I cannot tell you how important that is. You will love the Peabody. It is truly breathtaking. You will love the staff even more as they endeavor to show you they care as much as you do.Sent on 04/05/2019
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!
