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.
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.

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!
Such a unique space to have an event. Definitely check it out!
