Beautiful vintage venue with phenomenal food and accommodating staff!
We planned our beautiful wedding in just three months with the help of Donna, Bethany and the folks of Elkridge Furnace Inn. The staff was so accommodating and responsive to all of my emails and they really helped bring our classic gold, muted pink and vintage decor vision to life. The staff set up all of our decorations and did a fabulous job with limited instruction. They even added a few of their own pieces which complimented our decor beautifully. Quality, delicious food was important to us and we definitely found that in the menu options and tastings at this venue. Our guests still rave to us about the food and we were married in August of 2018. The outdoor area is beautiful and our guests loved having the option to mingle in the tent as well as the formal rooms of the inn and the outdoor garden area. We found the cost of the open bar to be very reasonable and the drinks were fantastic as well. Since my husband and I are from Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, we loved that Elkridge Furnace Inn is located right by BWI Airport because it made travel to and from the venue seamless. We truly loved having our wedding here and we're looking forward to coming back and dining for our anniversary!Sent on 06/23/2019

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
