I loved my wedding at Belmont Manor!!! My day was absolutely amazing the staff and my wedding coordinator worked so well together. I know they did a good job because i hardly saw them. Everyone was so busy running and keeping everything together it was amazing. I know my husband would not go for a vow renewal or a wedding anytime soon but i would have no problem coming right back to Belmont. Thank you for making my day easy.
We were really happy working with the staff. You were all very accommodating and readily available to us during the planning, which took a lot of stress off both of us.
We were really happy with how the day turned out. The grounds at Belmont are gorgeous and our guests are still complimenting us on how beautiful the ceremony and reception turned out even a month after the big day. It’s such an amazing place for any couple to celebrate their special day at. We actually just got our photos back from our photographer last week and they’re really amazing. She really did a great job not just capturing us, but the whole venue.
We are amazingly lucky that Belmont was such a major part of our wedding day. Since we were having a unique renaissance style wedding, we wanted a venue with a lot of land and character. The Belmont staff were patient with us throughout the whole process and allowed us the creative license to design our ceremony and tent layouts as we wish. We were able to visit, email and make phone calls whenever we had a question, which helped with the planning. Everyone we spoke to said how magical and beautiful Belmont looked and everyone enjoyed wandering the property, especially during the beautiful sunset! The tent was gorgeous and large enough to comfortably accommodate our wedding party. The gardens for the ceremony were absolutely gorgeous; you could tell they were designed with care and detail. On the day of the wedding, Belmont’s staff maintained communication with us and did everything they could to accommodate us, including carting us around on a golf cart for photos. We were so at ease during our wedding and reception and a lot of it had to do with Belmont. If you want a fresh, beautiful venue to hold your wedding and ceremony with ease, pick Belmont. Every day, we wish we could go back and experience it all over!”

Belmont Manor is absolutely breath-taking and beyond gorgeous. Our guests could not help walking the grounds during the reception to take the photos because they were amazed at how beautiful it was. The staff are excellent and were extremely helpful in the planning and preparation of our wedding. I cannot thank them enough for making it such a beautiful, unforgettable event for my guests.
Good Morning Belmont Staff,
We wanted to write and tell you how thankful we are to have held our wedding at Belmont. A date change 4 months before a wedding is not a normal occurrence and yet all of you went above and beyond to help us. We had such a spectacular wedding, and the setting definitely played a huge part in that. We just wanted to email and personally thank all of you. The entire day was an absolute dream.
Our photographer gave us a sneak peak of some photos that really showcase Belmont’s Beauty, which I attached here. I particularly remember him taking one in from of the Aqua garden that was beautiful, but we don’t have it yet. When it comes I can send it over.
Thank you so much for everything, and for helping to make our wedding a day we will never forget!
Best to all of you!!

From day one, the Belmont was ALWAYS our first choice in a wedding venue. We had over 200+ guests for our wedding, so we knew it would be a full event. We were soo excited to use the expansive grounds and gardens for pictures and cocktail hour. Unfortunately, our wedding was also the same day as the Ellicott City flood – and it thunder stormed/rained for almost 5 hours. Being the bride/groom – we were kept out of a lot of the “moving parts/details” because we had to move our cocktail hour under the tent, and then into the manor house. By now, it was pouring, so they worked with our caterer to make an open bar inside and serve our guests all of our passed hors d’oeuvres inside, despite crazy weather going on. They also still accommodated my Bridal party’s separate cocktail all the while this still went on. The Belmont staff worked really well with our coordinator and caterer, and they all allowed extending our event for a whole hour due to the weather “delays”. The only concern that I had was that the tent did leak down the middle during our first dance/speeches. But I’m only assuming this was because of such extreme weather. I can only imagine in a short storm or regular light/moderate rain it would be fine. Despite all unexpected changes to our day, my husband and I had an incredible time, and I know our guests did too. I only know it would’ve been better had it not been raining and we could’ve used the grounds to the full extent that we had wanted to.
Just wanted to send you a quick note. Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding day so wonderful! Even though the rain had me down a bit at first, everything went perfectly and all of our guests had such a wonderful time! Your staff members were so helpful and the manor house and property looked beautiful.
Hi Belmont Staff,
I have been waiting to write to you until I got more feedback from our guests at last Saturday’s wedding for Maura and John. And though the reviews are still coming in, everyone is raving about Belmont Manor!
I am so grateful to you and your staff for providing such a beautiful facility and for operating it so diligently. We are still in shock about how the weather shifted just in time for our event and stayed beautiful until well after we were under the tent. We feel that it was nothing short of a miracle. And of course, Belmont Manor really shines when the weather is good. We knew, though, that if things had gone the other way, your staff had a great back-up plan and were prepared to execute along with our caterers.
We had numerous comments about your staff: friendly, helpful, professional. From the event manager to the house staff to the groundskeepers and maintenance folks, everyone was delightful and went out of their way for our guests. One of our guests said she was going to a wedding in the Hamptons in August and she doubted that she would get anything like the service she got at Belmont Manor. We were so grateful to hear that our guests had been given such wonderful treatment.
We still feel lucky that we found our way to you and Belmont Manor. It is such a beautiful facility and such an asset for the County. It speaks volumes about Howard County and the way it functions. We feel proud to live in a County that offers such beautiful facilities and is staffed by such capable people. I intend to write a letter to the County Executive and the Director of Recreation and Parks letting them know how pleased we are and reminding them what a great image this projects of Howard County.
I know you work very hard to make this such a beautiful property and a welcoming venue. At times, I suspect that it wears you out. However, I want you to know that we will always be grateful to all of you for assisting us in providing the perfect wedding for our daughter and son-in-law.
Many, many thanks to all of you.
I couldn’t have imagined our day anywhere but Belmont Manor. Everything was absolutely beautiful. During the entire process we dealt mainly with Bobby who was fantastic the entire time. All of our guests keep saying how beautiful everything was and how much they loved the venue. I am so so happy we were among the lucky couples to get married at this breathtaking location.
Belmont is such a hidden gem! My husband and I are SO glad we booked Belmont as our wedding venue. My family cannot stop commenting on how beautiful and perfect it was. The views alone are absolutely breathtaking, but the facilities are fantastic, the event staff are so helpful, and the value is ridiculously good (especially compared to so many other expensive venues in the area). There are multiple gorgeous options for ceremony sites. The house includes a large bridal suite, a billiards room for groomsmen to entertain themselves, and a perfect setting for a cocktail hour if you prefer to hold that inside. The tent is HUGE with multiple elegant chandeliers, the draping is so pretty, and you have options for putting the sides down or leaving them open to see all of the beautiful nature surrounding it. My day went so smoothly and was just what I was picturing. It felt like we had the most elegant garden party for our big day. I highly recommend Belmont Manor for anyone’s wedding!!
I can’t say enough about this beautiful venue. They are really top notch. It doesn’t get any better than this venue and team. I worked with them for almost 2 years and they were amazing, organized, punctual, and professional. I highly recommend working with the Belmont Manor. You will not be disappointed and your guests will fall in love with the grounds.
The staff at the Belmont Manor was very accommodating. But most of all, the venue was stunning. It was just what we wanted- a way to still be outside in a natural, beautiful setting. Guests were able to enjoy the historic features of the manor, walk the gardens, play corn hole, and dance under the tent! It didn’t rain, but even if it did, we would have been fine! It comes with very classy trailer bathrooms as well. Very little to worry about and so much to admire and enjoy! Highly recommend!
