Beautiful Wedding Day!
We held our intimate ceremony at MSB this past weekend and in the midst of this pandemic, it was perfect! The booking process was seamless and Kate and her team are very responsive to emails.Sent on 11/17/2020
The venue is clean and beautiful, located in historic Ellicott City. MSB also has beautiful arches and furniture that you will be able to use for your wedding. The inside of the venue has a lot of good photo opps - white barn doors, chandelier, stone walls! We were very lucky and the rain held off, so we were able to take photos on their patio and along Main St as well!
I am so happy we chose to have an intimate wedding at MSB

11/10! Can we do it all again!?
We had a wonderful experience with MSB. The venue speaks for itself and we were able to add personal touches in every way. We had at least 185 people fit, drink, eat, dance comfortable. The staff was extremely helpful in decor recommendations and the venue provides beautiful furniture pieces to add to the venue. We loved our experience, and guests continue to compliment the beauty of the venue.Sent on 12/02/2019

Gave Us The Perfect Day
I am SO GLAD that we went with Main Street Ballroom for our wedding!! They had a COVID package that allowed us to have up to 20 guests, use of their house furniture, an officiant, two bottles of champagne, and a small cake for a phenomenal price. Our officiant, Rachel, even met up with us a few weeks before the wedding so she could get to know us and craft our ceremony to reflect who we are. She was so open and awesome in her communications with us that, on the day of, we felt like we had a friend we had known for years marrying us, which really put me at ease. Another employee, Taylor, made sure that the whole wedding was captured on a live stream and got some great angles! Both Rachel and Taylor really bent over backward for us in terms of set-up and making sure everything went smoothly, and I can't thank them enough. You will not regret booking with them!Sent on 09/15/2020

Entyse Lyfe had the opportunity to work with Kate and the Main Street Ballroom team for their Open House event! It is truly great as a planner to work with a Venue that is upfront, honest and flexible. Main Street is all of that and so much more! This space is amazing for any event. The natural elements of Main Street Ballroom are great for capturing beautiful photos for your most special moments! We highly recommend Main Street Ballroom!
Main Street Ballroom is such a unique and gorgeous space to hold your wedding! Kate is such a joy to work with - easygoing, creative and totally appreciates how stressful wedding planning can be, so the policies and offerings she has crafted for engaged couples are such a refreshing thing to see in this industry! I've had the pleasure of photographing the ballroom both indoors and out, and LOVE the texture, history, charm and industrial chic vibe of the space... all steps from the river, outdoor patio and Ellicott City's Main Street (so many great photo opportunities)!!! I look forward to working together in the years to come!
