    Exceeded our high expectations

    From start to finish, the people at Gertrude's were a joy to work with. The coordinator, Emily, is always quick to respond, super helpful in answering questions, and will keep things running smoothly on the day of the event. The sculpture garden was the perfect setting for our fall wedding, and dinner was just as good as the food at Gertrude's is every other time we've eaten there (aka it was freaking delicious). Our personal attendant for the night was so sweet and even knew my drink preferences before meeting me! My only hesitation when we booked was that I did not love the look of the dining room and thought the colors/upholstery might be distracting. I could not have been more wrong. In the candlelight, the space was completely transformed. It was a truly beautiful setting for our reception.

    One thing to note is that ceremonies at Gertrude's are held over the fountain. Because of the long train on my dress and our preference for a longer/straight aisle, we chose to rent an adjacent space in the sculpture garden from the BMA for our ceremony, and Gertrude's still handled the setup. Perfect!

    Basically, Gertrude's is probably the best bang-for-your-buck wedding venue in Baltimore, and definitely offers the best wedding food available. I cannot recommend them enough!
