With 100 guests usually about $165/guest inclusive of all fees, full house bar, staff, wedding cake, in house tables, chairs, linens, glassware, china, silverware, coordination/planning, tastings, venue, and catering. All you will need is your decor and other vendors (photographer, officiant, florist, ext.)!
No. We take care of that for you. However, all of your vendors must be insured through their own businesses.
Yes and yes! We do provide a preferred list of vendors that we trust to do a great job but you are welcome to be creative and choose whoever you wish. To see our preferred vendors click here.

Garden House Tent: 40'x50'
YES! We believe that every guest should have access to all wedding activities. To get in the Manor House + 1st Floor Restroom, we have installed a easy access handicapped ramp. Otherwise, the Ceremony Point & Reception Tent are all accessible without stairs. We also have handicapped parking for convenience + ease.
All alcohol MUST be purchased and provided by The Elkridge Furnace Inn. If there is something special that you don't see in our lists, let us know and we will contact our distributors to get it for you. As long as it is legally distributed in Howard County (yes, that nix's your crazy Uncle Larry's homemade moonshine. Sorry.) then we will make it happen!
- Private Spaces to use for your hour of early arrival
- Folding White Chairs, Reception Tables (choices of shape + size), Cocktail Tables, White Linens (includes underlay, overlay, cloth napkins, + buffet skirts)
- China, Glassware, Silverware, Barware, Cocktail Napkins, + Tiered Displays (for Hors D'oeuvres + Dessert Bars)
- Set up + Clean Up - that's right, you + your VIP's will not be throwing centerpieces on tables or stacking chairs + mopping after your reception. NOT A CHANCE!
- Event Planning+ Coordination
- Parking for all guests + vendors.
Our Base Rental is 4 hours with an additional half hour included in your Ceremony Fee + 1 hour of early arrival for the wedding party + hosts. We allow guests to arrive 30 minutes early + another 30 minutes on the tail end to say their goodbyes. After the wedding concludes our staff will assist with packing up to get you out the door with ease so you can keep the night going if you so choose!
Yes + yes. We have a full Pastry Department who will work with you to bring the desserts from your sweetest dreams to life. We have done anything from the traditional tiered wedding cake to fun custom dessert bars. We even have a fire pit if you are interested in s'mores!
We do! Your coordinator will be your go to person throughout the planning process and also be on site day-of to ensure all of your wishes have been carried out as planned!
Just like you, we don’t believe in nickel and diming. The price you see is the price you pay. We don’t charge any extra fees other than what is listed above We do require a $500 damage deposit in the form of a post dated check, which you get back after your event if there isn’t any damage or overage. If your would like a customized quote, fill out the form here.
We require three items to confirm and reserve your date.
1. Signed Contract
2. 25% Down Payment
3. $500 Damage Deposit in the form of a check dated the day of your wedding. This will be securely stored until your wedding day + will be voided & returned as long as there are not damages or additional approved day-of costs (ex: adding guests or time)
We do not hold dates without your deposit. If you are interested on a particular date we recommend to stay in touch so we can give you updates on new proposals and interest.
