About Kentlands Mansion

The Kentlands Mansion is a mansion wedding venue in the Washington, D.C. area. This historic venue also serves as an art gallery with a rotating exhibition, giving couples a touch of color and creativity on their special day. This venue can be found near Gaithersburg, Maryland, approximately 40 minutes from the Washington National Cathedral.

Facilities and Capacity

As many as 150 guests can join couples on their big day at this mansion venue. The building itself has two floors and eight rooms that couples may use for their big day. It sits on a well-manicured lawn that features a side garden, allowing wedding events to spill outdoors depending on the weather and the season. The rooms are decorated like a sophisticated home, with antique-style furniture, golden chandeliers, crown molding and - of course - works of art hung along all the walls that are supplemented in places by statues and curio cabinets. In one of the main banquet rooms, the walls are made of an ornate and darkly colored wood.

Services Offered

This venue offers event planning to help couples prepare for their big day. At the Kentlands Mansion, couples can host a bridal shower, engagement party or rehearsal dinner in addition to their ceremony and reception. Other services through this venue include:

  • Bridal suite
  • Outside vendors
  • Parking
  • Setup
  • Wireless Internet

History

The history of the estate can be traced back to 1723 as a land grant. The brick mansion was constructed by the owner’s son after his father’s death in 1892. Other buildings were also constructed on the property, many of which are - like the Kentlands Mansion - still standing and in use today. The lands were purchased by Otis Beall Kent and given a name that still sticks to this day, Kentlands. The property underwent a massive reconstruction and restoration project in the hands of the new owner, and was expanded at one point to 1,100 acres as a gentleman’s estate and wildlife sanctuary.

    Beautiful venue with easy to work with management

    We had our engagement celebration (for 50 people) organized at Kentlands Mansion and it was an amazing evening and great experience. We worked with Susan and Kristy and they were both great. Kristy was very helpful even at the day of the event. Everything was very professional and all the rules and conditions were clearly stated beforehand. We are happy we chose Kentlands Mansion and we may be back to host another events in the future!

    A great fall wedding venue

    Had our wedding here on October 21st, and everything went really well.
    1. Guests (of which we had about 75) really liked the venue--in the sense that it was convenient (easy to find/park), aesthetically pleasing, and great for food, drink, dance, and socializing. The layout is nicely conducive to giving guests multiple spaces to do what they want (e.g., we had a few cocktail tables and games for people to play on the heated, covered porch).
    2. As wedding venues go, it was quite affordable, especially because the mansion itself requires little additional decor and tables/chairs are included (both for the ceremony and the reception; you pay for linen rentals, but those are reasonably priced).
    3. The Kentlands Mansion staff were very helpful throughout our preparations, especially our day-of coordinator, Lisa Kim, who helped a great deal with getting all the little details ready before guests arrived. As an aside, we also worked with Green Plate Catering and Roman Grinev Photography, and there didn't seem to be any coordination problems between them and the folks at Kentlands Mansion.
    4. Most importantly, my wife and I loved the venue--it was the perfect place for the outdoor fall ceremony we wanted. Everything went swimmingly, and everyone left happy.

    The Kentlands Mansion is a wonderful venue with a great staff. It's a charming place tucked away in a neighborhood in Gaithersburg.

    Kentlands is one of my favorite wedding venues in the area. The building is awesome for getting ready shots, the ceremony (inside or out) and for the reception. Moreover, the grounds around Kentlands Mansion are ideal for bride and groom portraits. Everyone who works there is incredibly friendly and accommodating and will work with you to make your wedding a perfect day to remember. I have shot many weddings there and always look forward to the next one.
