Gorgeous venue, perfect for having ceremony and reception in one location.
I booked this venue because I LOVE their look. However, I was also thrilled with the other things they offer. Rental window from 8am - midnight (and we used ALL of those hours) plus the freedom to use any vendors you want. I looked at places that force you to use one of their contracted caterers and didn't like that. MSB also has a lot of stuff that you can use for free: Easels, picture frames, tables, sweetheart table chairs, etc. They also provide chairs for 120 and 12 60 inch round tables (which I don't really think should seat 120... those tables really only fit 8 comfortably). When we needed to change from an 8:45 start to an 8am start 2 days before, they responded within an hour that it was ok.Sent on 09/16/2019
Two possible drawbacks to this venue (in my opinion): Parking. This isn't really their fault, but parking was full by 2 or 3 pm, and we had to start about 15 mins late while we waited for people to arrive. I don't know if valet is an option for them, but it would really help. Also, there are crickets in the walls! When no one is in there it is LOUD because the crickets talk to each other and echo. However, either they went to sleep by the time my ceremony started or we just couldn't hear them... but they did not ruin the ceremony or the wedding. Just made me super nervous while getting ready while loud cricket sounds went off constantly :). Regardless, I would not change the venue if I had to do it again. It was the perfect place for us.
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!
