The liriodendron in itself is a gorgeous venue. You need very few decorations because it is stunning by itself. Their prices are great and you get a very whimsical wedding. Our event ran very smoothly I worried about nothing that day. Leslie is so quick to reply to any and all questions. My only concern with the venue was the bridal suite because it was so small, but when we visited the venue during our rehearsal Leslie excitedly informed me the expanded it, and it is so beautiful. The liriodendron was so accommodating it made our wedding so less stressful, we were even able to add an extra hour on short notice. Definitely recommend if you would love a beautiful, stress free venue.Sent on 10/15/2019

Beautiful Venue, Incredible Service
Leslie and the team at the Liriodendron were attentive to whatever we needed and flexible with our request to come in early and set things up the day before. Communication was easy and they offered great suggestions for our other vendors. We had our wedding on a Friday and it was totally affordable for the space and amenities. We couldn't have asked for a better location to celebrate this new chapter of our lives.Sent on 09/04/2019

Most Beautiful Venue
This venue is stunning. The ceremony was outdoors, dinner was indoors, and the reception was indoor/outdoors. We got so many compliments on how beautiful the venue was. It is very reasonably priced. It is a small venue, but it was perfect for our number of guests. Our only complaint is the groom’s suite was very tight.Sent on 09/25/2019
Liriodendron's reply:Thank you so much, Clara, and we are very happy that our historic site provided a wonderful setting for your wedding. Best wishes, and please come back to visit!
Tiffany · Married on 08/25/2019
I am so glad that my husband and I chose this venue to have our wedding. It is beautiful inside and out. It’s been a month since I got married but I still hear about how beautiful the wedding was. The staff was super helpful and Leslie gave me a great list of vendors to chose from. I believe it is affordable compared to other places in Maryland. My husband and I did the brunch wedding package and it was great. The only downfall is that the price is for only 3 hours and time just flew by. Either way, it was an absolutely beautiful day and I’m very happy with my decision.Sent on 09/26/2019
Liriodendron's reply:Thank you so much for the nice review, Tiffany! We are happy to have hosted your special day. Our Brunch wedding option is very economical and couples love it. Best wishes to you!

Perfect venue for a relaxed wedding
My husband and I went to high school together in Bel Air and I am so happy we decided to go back to Bel Air to look at wedding venues. Leslie was amazing to work with, didn't mind us calling her multiple times to ask her thousands of questions and worked with us on the day of our wedding. We got married on a Thursday which saved us a little bit of money, but the venue is perfectly priced and you get all the chairs and tables from the Liriodendron! It's also a gorgeous venue if you are looking for something on the relaxed/nature/vintage side. My guests (especially ones from out of town) kept talking about how beautiful the mansion is and really enjoyed the history too.Sent on 09/29/2019

Jackie · Married on 10/26/2018
We recently had our wedding at the Liriodendron Mansion. The staff were incredibly kind and helpful. The venue itself was absolutely beautiful and well maintained. Our questions and concerns were promptly answered as we were from out of town. We showed up the day before the event for the rehearsal and they were working hard to prepare the grounds which looked like a page out of a fairytale. They even went out of their way to ensure the fountain was working despite the cold weather coming in. The house and the grounds were so well taken care of, it’s clear that they love this property and care about maintaining the history of it. Because of the great experience we had we would definitely have another event at the Liriodendron Mansion and we highly recommend them to anyone looking for an elegant location hidden by the woods.Sent on 01/17/2019

The Liriodendron is just a beautiful place to get married. It's such a hidden gem with so much history. We came to this venue during an open house and I envisioned the entire wedding. It was the one! We booked our date and then found our caterer from their vendor list (Dean & Brown is the best!). We opted for a daytime wedding with the standard four hours. If you have alot of speeches or want to enjoy a long reception, I recommend booking the extra hour (s) at the additional cost. Your wedding will go by so fast! . Leslie was so helpful during the entire process. She even allowed us to bring wedding items the day before which saved so much time and stress! I 100% recommend the Liriodendron if you have a guestlist of about 100 or under. You won't be disappointed!Sent on 10/18/2018

What a Stunning and Magical Place!
The moment we set our eyes on the Liriodendron, we knew this was the place we were getting married. The venue is not only picture perfect for such an event, but the staff was communicative, kind, and made sure we were happy with everything. They coordinated with our other professionals and worked as a team. I cannot express just how grateful I am to be part of this historic mansion and it will always remain a special place to us. Thank you Leslie and the team!Sent on 01/11/2019

Ashleigh · Married on 06/09/2018
What a beautiful venue, inside and out. The Liriodendron has a charm that you won't find anywhere else. The mansion makes a beautiful backdrop for the wedding ceremony. We had a 100% chance of rain on our wedding day and were able to put our tables on the patios as well as a few inside. The weather cleared up right before our ceremony and we were still able to manage to have it outside. You can guarantee beautiful pictures here and the elegance of the venue means you don't need to do much decorating.Sent on 07/07/2018
Liriodendron's reply:Thank you so much for the lovely review, Ashleigh. We are glad that the Liriodendron played a part in helping to make your special day wonderful. Best Wishes to you!
Jasmine · Married on 05/20/2018
What an absolutely breathtaking venue at an affordable price. I lucked out an was able to have my wedding on the beautiful grounds. Leslie was a pleasure to work with despite my contact indecisiveness. I was also the perfect size for my 75 guests. It didn’t feel cramped and each space gave me a different vibe.From the wisteria drapped portico to the dining room with the fireplace this plac definitely has the vintage romance feel.Sent on 07/17/2018

Michael · Married on 05/19/2018
We couldn't have asked for a perfect venue for our wedding. We worked with Leslie from the initial tour all the way through to the wedding itself. Very professional, good communication, and always prepared! It unfortunately rained on the day of our wedding, but Leslie called the day before and helped get everything set up for the day of.Sent on 06/20/2018
The Liriodendron will provide chairs, tables, and stands if you require them, which is a huge plus. They allow you to arrive early to setup for your wedding and give you plenty of time for tear down. The location is very easy to get to and there is also plenty of parking.
We shopped around looking at quite a few venues in Maryland, and not only did the Liriodendron impress with how gorgeous it was, it was very economical as well.
Although we really wished the wedding could have been outside to show off how beautiful the mansion and surrounding area was, the interior is just as beautiful. The mansion is well kept, clean, and feels very classical. When the wisteria is in bloom, you simply cannot find a more beautiful place to host a wedding.
Liriodendron's reply:Thank you so much for the lovely review! We're glad we helped make your wedding day wonderful. Best Wishes to you and Shannon.

Courtney · Married on 03/31/2018
We loved this venue! We had a late March Sunday brunch wedding ceremony and reception with Dean & Brown catering and can't say enough positive things. If you go with Liriodendron, I highly recommend also going with Dean & Brown because they work so well together. We spent a long time looking for affordable options and didn't think we would be able to have something this beautiful in our price range. It was much colder than expected (snowing) on our wedding day but even without the outside space, the inside was beautiful and there was plenty of room for just over 50 guests. We got married in front of the main fireplace and I was able to bring my own decorations for the mantles and the stair railing . Since we were coming from out of town, they allowed us to drop off most of our things the day before (even though they were setting up for another wedding). We were able to make payments when it was convenient for us. They were so accommodating and the value was amazing!Sent on 04/15/2018
Liriodendron's reply:Thank you so much for the great review, Courtney. We are so glad that the Liriodendron could provide you and your guests with an elegant, yet warm and intimate setting for your special day. And your wedding was absolutely beautiful!

Tammy · Married on 08/11/2017
We had our ceremony and reception at the Liriodendron 2 days ago (August 2017). Everything was amazing and beyond our expectations!! The mansion and grounds are absolutely gorgeous and all of our guests enjoyed the historical significance and architecture. We started working with Glenda and then Leslie took over the position. Both were great to work with. Cindy was our staff on site for the wedding. She was very nice and very accommodating to anything we or our vendors needed. They were able to let us bring the decorations early and drop off multiples loads. You cannot use real candles here but that did not bother us at all. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone. It is cost effective too for the gorgeous setting and you can bring in a caterer off of their list and bring your own alcohol.Sent on 08/13/2017
Liriodendron's reply:Hello Tammy, congratulations to you and Jeff! And thank you so much for the wonderful review. We are happy that we could help make your wedding so special. Just to clarify, we do require a caterer from our approved list, and you made a great choice with Dean & Brown - as you experienced, their service is outstanding. And we agree, the Liriodendron offers great value for the beautiful setting. Thanks again, and best wishes to you, Leslie

In our search for the perfect venue we came across this gem for our July wedding. This was the first venue that was reasonably priced but didn't feel like we were settling. Everything was beautiful and the staff was very helpful. They were able to accommodate us by adding an extra hour (for a cost of course) to how long we could use the venue. The venue was stunning with the historical look and atmosphere combined with the wooded feel that we were looking for. All of our guests enjoyed the venue and really felt it was such a lovely place. The only downside was that we were expecting that the outside fountain would be running which it wasn't (due to mechanical error, pump wasn't working). But overall this venue was perfect for us and we are very happy we had it there. The pictures were done by James Trudeau who was amazing! Our wedding coordinator Marta Kasner was phenomenal setting up our decorations with our caterer Dean & Brown. Racheal Zajac made our ceremony so personal and fun! Everything turned out better than expected and all of our venders worked great together!Sent on 09/25/2017
Liriodendron's reply:Thank you so much for the great review! We are very glad that your special day here at the Liriodendron turned out so well. (I can let you know, we have a generous friend of a Board member who is going to completely renovate and improve our fountain!) Best Wishes to you both and please come back and visit us.
Paula · Married on 10/09/2016
The venue was lavishly beautiful, and you can't beat the price-to-quality ratio! Every inch of the mansion is meticulous. Our guests loved the architecture as well as the historical photos in one of the rooms. We fit 112 seats on one of the porticoes for the ceremony, used the 3 larger rooms inside for seating during the dinner, removed a few tables from one room when it was dance time (yes, there was room for a 6-piece band!), used one of two smaller rooms for the buffet and the other of the two smaller rooms for a photo booth area. The other portico was used for the open bar and overflow dancing. The grounds were gorgeous! We had a fall wedding, but I've seen this location in spring and summer, and it's equally beautiful. We LOVED the arch of wisteria that covered the front porch; it made a perfect backdrop for photos, as did the front entrance, even at night! Lighting and air conditioning inside were perfect. We highly recommend the Liriodendron Mansion for your wedding and reception.Sent on 10/30/2016

I fell in love with the Liriodendron Mansion as soon as I saw it driving up. The venue is a historic mansion, so it comes with a number of typical restrictions on decorations and access, so if you have your heart set on candles centerpieces, a sparklers send-off, or a specific caterer, you have to look elsewhere. (That said, Dean and Brown is one of the caterers allowed at the venue, and they are absolutely fantastic). Lirio is affordable, incredibly photogenic and can boast awonderful staff, who are as flexible as the rules of the venue allow them to be. They are helpful, responsive and supportive throughout the planning process. And on the day of the wedding, they largely stay in the office unless you require their assistance. The Bel Air area doesn't have a ton of restaurants or the type of hotels you would ideally want to stay for your wedding night, but Havre de Grace is a short ride away, and the local hotels, while not upscale, are clean and comfortable. And most importantly, those wedding pictures are going to look awesome!Sent on 07/03/2016
Ashley · Married on 05/14/2016
We had our ceremony and reception at the Liriodendron and it was more beautiful than we could have ever dreamed. We worked with Dorothy until she retired and then Glenda, both very knowledgeable about the history of the grounds and were easy to work with. Most people who attended our wedding were wowed by the beauty of the venue and could not believe we found such a beautiful hidden gem. If you decide to book the Liriodendron, please consider choosing Dean and Brown as your caterer as they are very knowledgeable with the venue and receive an amazing wedding coordinator in Terry as well.Sent on 05/18/2016

My husband and I wanted to have a small wedding so that we could instead have an amazing honeymoon and not break the bank since we are in the process of saving to purchase our first home. I didn't want to get married at the courthouse and was searching for a venue that was intimate and beautiful so that I could share the day with a few close family members and friends and still have amazing photos to look back on. The Liriodendron Mansion was the perfect alternative. They offer a petite wedding package for a 3 hour period for a very reasonable price. We got married on a Wednesday in the early afternoon in late May. The house itself is old, but historic and beautiful with lush green grounds and lovely wisteria growing over the back terrace. It was picture perfect. We were fortunate to have a beautiful, sunny day. We got married outside on the side portico which is covered and has a beautiful view of the lawns. Flowers were blooming everywhere and it was just such a pretty location. Our photos came out so well with vibrant green backgrounds. Apparently I missed the purple blooms of the wisteria by about 2 weeks, so I think the best time would be the first two weeks of May. Dorothy was amazing. She answered all of my many questions via email in a very timely manner. Glenda was also wonderful - sharing the amazing history of the home and the family that lived there as we explored all of the rooms during our visit. If you are having a small wedding and looking for a beautiful location and want amazing photos, but don't want to break the bank, then I highly recommend you check out the Liriodendron!Sent on 06/13/2015

We recently had our wedding (Jan. 17, 2014 ) at the Liriodendron Mansion in Belair,MD. It was the perfect setting for an intimate winter wedding. We had 75 guests and the coziness , fireplaces and feel of the mansion were exactly what we, as an older couple, were looking for as a setting. It was a pleasure working with Dorothy to set up the date, there were photo albums available of other weddings to get a feel of the venue and the mansion was open different times on the weekend to go and visit. I would highly recommend this venue for a wedding.Sent on 02/08/2014

Love love love this venue! From the moment I stepped foot on the property I knew this was the place for our wedding. We signed our contract a year and a half in advance and never once had difficulty with this venue. Dorothy was amazing and much more flexible than many have stated. The grounds are pristine and add so much to the wedding backdrop. The arbors outside were amazing and our guests loved eating dinner under them. Dorothy was our night of attendant and she stood in the background waiting to help if needed. I couldn't be more pleased with Liriodendron and all it has to offer. To brides looking at this venue please remember it is county property and does have some strict regulations. If you want candles or cords running across the floors then this is not the place for you. If you are ok with LED candles and enjoying the beautiful landscaping then I would highly recommend this venue!Sent on 08/10/2013

I loved the Liriodendron, this was the first and only venue that I looked at. Dorothy from Lirio was incredibly helpful and easy to work with. The Lirio is incredibly reasonably priced, I still cannot believe how beautiful my wedding was for the total amount we spent on it. A few tips for anyone considering this venue......consider booking your wedding on a friday rather than a saturday because they only book one wedding on fridays, but two weddings on saturdays so you're much more constrained when it comes to getting additional time. If you're having your ceremony and reception at the Lirio consider booking 6 hours rather than the standard booking of 4 hours. In addition to the 6 hours we also booked additional time so that we could get pictures on the veranda before the tables got set up on it; I haven't seen the pictures yet but it was difficult to get good pictures on the veranda earlier in the day because the sun was shining through the wisteria. If you're having a spring/summer wedding and it doesn't rain the wedding will be priceless; sitting under the Wisteria vines on the veranda is one of the most beautiful things you could ever think of, but prepare yourself incase it does rain because you can't control the weather. This is a wonderful venue and if you're willing to risk the weather I would highly recommend it.Sent on 06/05/2013
