The Elkridge Furnace Inn is a wedding venue in Elkridge, Maryland. The Furnace Complex is over twelve acres on state park property, situated on the banks of the Patapsco River; just south of the Baltimore Harbor with easy access to major routes and a convenient distance from BWI. Our Manor House dates to 1810 and boasts comfortable elegance with large Federal era windows and porches emphasizing the historic nature of the property and showcasing picturesque scenes. Our Celebration Lounge and Suite are the perfect place to change, relax, and share a toast during your complementary early arrival. The Ceremony Point is surrounded by nature, and a large pergola provides a dramatic entry for the bridal party procession. Every season has its charm for an outdoor ceremony, but we do have a Plan B for times when indoor ceremonies are necessary. Cocktail hour can take place inside the Manor House which features interior elements such as original flooring, black marble mantels and double-leaf doors. The main bar is in our Historic Kitchen, and guests are also free to make use of our grand but cozy front porch and beautiful yard. There is a unique space for every aspect of your Wedding Day. For over 25 years couples have made memories here to last a lifetime. If you are planning a more intimate wedding, we have recently added our Garden House venue. Perfect for guests of 70 or less, this space is situated in the middle of our organic gardens and greenhouse. In addition to small weddings, we also host rehearsal dinners and other celebrations in this space.

I can’t even begin to tell people how spectacular it was to have our wedding at this establishment. Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, was so unbelievably kind, helpful, organized, detailed, loving, and made the day so special. It’s so cliche to say, but it truly was a very special day. This was the only venue we looked at and for good reason. I can’t thank the entire staff and Sarah, Donna, and Dan, enough for all the love and attention they gave to our wedding day.Sent on 02/15/2020
The Elkridge Furnace Inn's reply:Love you both and looking forward to continue celebrating life with you! Loved seeing your pictures and can't wait for more. Thanks for sharing these kind words Sara!

If we could do it all again, we would choose EFI without a second thought. After signing a contract with them a full 2 years prior to our reception, we had 3 different contact people for the venue. Ultimately each and every contact was extremely helpful. We ended up working with Julia and could not think of a more perfect person for our day. She was extremely responsive, attentive, and calmed all of our fears! Everything went off without a hitch. The food was amazing, drinks were perfect, and they had every detail completed beautifully.Sent on 06/08/2019

I LOVE photographing weddings at The Elkridge Furnace Inn!! It is one of the most beautiful settings with incredibly delicious & unique food- ingredients are grown in the gardens behind the inn The staff is friendly & professional. They are on top of everything without being on top of the guests. I hope to shoot at The Elkridge Furnace more in the future. :)
The Elkridge Furnace Inn goes above and beyond to take care of every detail. This is one of my favorite venue's to DJ. The food is amazing, and the grounds are beautiful. You and your guest will love it.
