Most magical venue in the world
If you are looking for the wow factor, this is the place! I've been wanting to get married here since forever and all my wedding dreams came true last weekend. It was just beautiful and so magical. There's no other way to describe it. Everyone will be blown away by your venue choice and just be in awe of the place. Sam, one of the day time special event coordinators at the Peabody, is just fantastic to work with throughout the process. On the night of, I was happy with their people as well. I would recommend getting a planner/coordinator and hire other vendors that know the venue because there are certain rules to be followed. However, when you have an experienced planner... following the rules isn't too difficult. The hanging lights are worth the extra expense!Sent on 02/18/2020

Elegant and Historical
Our daughter and son-in-law selected the George Peabody Library for their wedding reception. The Peabody is known as one of the most beautiful libraries on earth. Its architecture perfectly complements transformation into a stunningly, picture perfect wedding reception setting, especially, in our case, with soft lighting strung across the atrium that beautifully accentuated the five tiers of black and brass railings and frosted glass ceiling.
Judy Moskowitz and Sam Bessen guided us through the application process. We fully appreciated the unique need to preserve the Peabody’s character and contents, which is the reason it is one of the most, if not the most, sought after venue for receptions. No other venue even comes close to its richness in Baltimore history and sheer opulence. It is an experience in and of itself.
Our guests were in awe upon entrance into the Peabody Library, and that, along with every other detail, set the mood for an unimaginably, unforgettable, perfect evening!Sent on 11/16/2019
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!
