About George Peabody Library

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.

    I could not have picked a more perfect venue for our wedding. Peabody certainly has rules and strictly enforces them; however, I found the rules easy to apply and work with. The staff was organized and friendly. While they kept the event running smoothly and effortlessly, I hardly noticed they were there until I need them. Getting to watch the guests' faces as they entered the stacks room was reason enough to book the venue! It is truly a breathtaking and magical place.

    One visit to the George Peabody Library and it speaks for itself. The venue was so gorgeous we needed little else to decorate for the wedding. The Peabody staff were wonderful to work with and quick to respond to questions. While leading up the wedding, they were well organized and helpful with planning related issues. They were fantastic the week and especially the day of the wedding. While there are some rules and regulations to the venue, it didn't hinder our ability to celebrate the way we wanted to. We used the exhibit hall for cocktail hour and the library for the ceremony and reception. We loved the change of space between the ceremony and reception. Many of our guests commented that they enjoyed reading more about the venue during the cocktail hour through the exhibit. The accommodations of the bridal suite to get ready was a wonderful extra addition for us to use and relax on the day.

    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!
