About The Elkridge Furnace Inn
We have been Celebrating Wedding Ceremonies & Receptions, Rehearsals and Showers for over 25 years!
Chef Owned and Operated: Chef Daniel Wecker brings many years of experience to our Bridal Couples to help with custom menu planning. He is joined by his wife Donna, who works with Weddings and Special Events and their daughter, Genelle, the Executive Pastry Chef whose limitless creativity will add a sweet ending to your memory.
Ideally situated on 13 beautifully landscaped acres, our Manor and Garden House are rich in history and picturesque backdrops. The Elkridge Furnace Inn is minutes away from BWI Airport and the Inner Harbor of Baltimore and has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Easy access from Routes 95, 195 and 1.
The Manor Home, circa 1810, was the residence Andrew Ellicott Jr. The manor home is comprised of three and a half floors with covered porches overlooking the gardens and Patapsco River. The third floor is a three-room Bridal Suite with a dress fitting room, two sitting rooms and a full bathroom. A separate Groom's Room is provided or the gentlemen, with a connecting porch overlooking the river. Our Garden House dates to 1830 and is perfect for smaller weddings.
Our outdoor Ceremony Point has a dramatic entrance of a flowering pergola surrounded by both formal and wild landscape. The brick seating area, complete with a center aisle, is slightly downhill, giving an impression of stadium seating, and leads to the main point overlooking the Patapsco River. An old sycamore tree (nominated for 2011 Howard County Champion) and other surrounding trees provide an excellent canopy. The grounds are also graced by beautiful linden, holly and magnolia trees. Each season has it's charm! Ceremonies are held in our tented space if need be.
Cocktails & Hors D'oeuvres
Following the ceremony, cocktails and hors d'oeuvres are served in the Manor Home. A Colonial Revival porch leads you to the main entrance featuring consisting of the original double leaf doors. The interior rooms have been lovingly restored from colonial days but decorated with your special touches.
The Reception takes place in our Tented space affixed to the Manor Home. The Tent (40' x 80') can be open or fully enclosed and is equipped with chandeliers, ceiling fans, heating and air conditioning units and a wooden-panel parquet dance floor (21' x 21'). Extensions can be added to cover the surrounding patios to allow for more space if needed.
Our rental rates begin at a four hour length with the option to purchase additional time. Specific rental rates vary based on time, day and month. Only one function is hosted at a time. Saturday daytime functions must end by 3 p.m. in order to accommodate the evening function. Fridays and Sundays allow for more flexibility and any time frame can be chosen. Ceremony fee adds and extra half hour to your wedding.
