Facilities and Capacity
Nestled on 232 acres of private property, the Conservancy is embraced by abundant Maryland flora and fauna. Couples can exchange vows with trickling waters as their soundtrack or walk down the aisle beneath endless blue skies. Theresa’s Garden is a peaceful outdoor area, and for couples looking for a rustic feel, the exclusive Montjoy Barn is the perfect place to hold romantic ceremonies and capture beautiful wedding photographs. For celebrations held indoors, The Gudelsky Environmental Education Center can accommodate anywhere between 50 and 200 people, dependent on the selected event layout. Featuring a number of eco-friendly structural elements, this building offers space flooded with natural light, a beautiful bamboo floor, and exposed wooden beams. Its largest 2,400-square-foot private function room can be organized in either theater-style seating or in a banquet configuration. Couples reserving The Gudelsky Center can also take advantage of a spacious covered terrace area, a balcony, a break room, and the Honors Garden. For wedding preparations, a private farmhouse dressing room provides a place tucked away from the excitement where couples can get ready for their big day.
Couples celebrating the beginning of the next chapter of their lives at the Howard County Conservancy are invited to arrange their own outside vendors. A number of event supplies are made available to couples as part of the contract price, including a 20-foot-tall screen, chairs, and round, rectangular and cocktail tables.
