1. Gertrude’s is a true gem of a venue where you not only get a great restaurant but access to the BMA sculpture garden.Sent on 09/25/2019
2. The food is phenomenal. Every single one of our guest raved about the food. The staff was so kind and professional and made sure we, the bride and groom, were well fed and drinks were always available in between photos.
3. Emily V. Is truly a blessing to work with. I can’t say enough about how great my experience was working with her. She was organized ( I am not), very responsive to multiple emails and accommodating to changes in plans. She made the venue/food experience completely stress free. She may be the only thing I miss about planning a wedding.

Everything we could have dreamed!
We got married at the end of August and it was the most perfect day ever! From the beginning of the planning process, Emily was a dream to work with. She was super responsive, patient, and explained everything to us thoroughly. She never got annoyed with all of our million and one questions! It was especially difficult as we were planning our wedding across the country, but Emily and Gertrude's made the process seamless. The venue was decorated BEAUTIFULLY and people could not stop talking about how perfect of a venue it was, as guests were able to be indoor, outdoor, under a tent, etc. Not to mention the food!! Literally the best wedding food we and our guests (as several of them told us) have ever had. The weather cooperated wonderfully and helped make the entire atmosphere that much more beautiful. I would highly recommend Gertrude's to anyone planning to get married in the Baltimore area. You won't regret it at all!!Sent on 09/27/2019
