Of all the venues I researched, this venue was the most beautiful and the upfront cost was the least. It does fill up quickly, so be sure to book your date at least 9 months in advance! Also, be aware that they are closed October - April. Although the rental cost is very inexpensive, prepare for a wallet-shocker when renting tables, chairs, tents, fans, etc - They are not provided by the venue.

This is the most magical, unique venue I have ever seen. It is very difficult to describe as it is unlike any other place you have ever been. There is no other venue I looked at that compared or suit us more perfectly. Our guests will be talking about what an amazing place it was and what a perfect place for a fun, off the beaten path kind of wedding for a long time!

The venue itself is more than affordable, potential clients definitely need to consider the amount of work that may go into putting together an event here though. Parking is 1/2 mile down the hill so we needed to rent a shuttle service as well as a tent plan in case of rain, trailer restrooms, lighting, and full rentals. It does add up, so just don't be deceived by the original price tag. Absolutely worth every penny in my opinion!

We wanted to have a really fun, relaxed wedding and when we first saw PFI, we knew this was the place for us.

From the columns to the crumbling walls to the blue girders, this place is so unique and really beautiful.

Not to mention, the staff that manage the site are wonderful.

If you are looking for a blank canvas to create your wedding at, you should consider this place!

The Patapsco Female Institute was an incredible place to get married. Jacque Galke and her team were super attentive for the entire year that we worked with her to plan our event. This space is the ruin of an all-girls school from the 1830s, an edifice with blue steel girders. Because it is a park, we were able to curate the event and make it ours. It was spectacular.

From the moment we began looking at the Patapsco Female Institute (PFI), Susanna, our contact was excellent. She gave us great information about the place and was pretty flexible around our schedules for the times we went to the venue. The PFI is truly a unique place and not suited to everyone. You have to have a sense of adventure and an understanding that everything you want for the ceremony/reception must be brought in with the exception of water and electricity. You may have to tent the place which is costly. You will need to bring in tables, chairs, dishes etc. If you find a great caterer, it's less worry but those costs can add up if you are budget conscious.
The place is nothing less than magical. The ruins are very romantic and offer lots of possibilities for ceremony and reception.
The PFI only does one event a day and you get the place for a generous number of hours.
Worth looking into for a unique outdoor wedding.
