Grey Rock Mansion stands guard over the historic estate which marks the birthplace of John Eager Howard, one of Maryland’s immortals. From the grand portico entrance, reminiscent of the entrance to Mount Vernon, to its spacious and elegant interior, Grey Rock is the perfect location for any celebration. Use of all four beautiful rooms on the main level, as well a second floor bridal suite, and the French slate patio allows us to welcome groups large and small for a plethora of occasions.

We are the proud home of Simply Elegant Catering, who creates and executes menus on-site for all of our clients. Simply Elegant Caterings is also pleased to travel to over sixty other sites in the Baltimore metro area, including but not limited to private homes, The Grand Lodge, Westminster Hall, The Gramercy Bed and Breakfast, and the 1840’s Ballroom. Welcoming you to our home is always a special pleasure, of course!

We pride ourselves on combining creativity and attention to detail with exceptional service. Every occasion coordinated by Simply Elegant is handled by our event experts. Our well-rounded team of planners, chefs, event managers, and staff work in tandem to ensure that your party is a rousing success! We will assist you with designing a menu specifically tailored to your needs and your guests. We will happily make recommendations in the search for vendors to complete the team, as well as coordinating with them the day of the event. Your coordinator will spend time with you creating the floor plan, and selecting all of the linens that will complete your color scheme. A custom timeline will let everyone to know what has been planed, and the order in which it will occur, and from that timeline our event manager will walk you through your special day. Our ultimate goal is to allow you to be a guest at your own wedding.

Be sure to see Grey Rock Mansion when it is featured on "Whose Wedding Is It Anyway?- Bride vs. Groom" on the Style Network, Saturday, December 26th at 2:00!

We're very happy with the overall experience we had with Simply Elegant Catering. In the months leading up to our wedding we worked with Nancy, who couldn't have been more accommodating and pleasant. The venue itself is beautiful. On our actual wedding night Charlene was always there to help out and make sure our night went smoothly. She really brought a lot of extra joy and her help was invaluable! I will say that, aside from Charlene's amazing attention to detail, I wish there had been a bit more involvement on the night of the wedding. Charlene was excellent with the small details that needed to be tended to, but she couldn't be everywhere at once and it might have been helpful to have a more involved day-of coordinator for the "big-picture" details. Grey Rock advertises that they'll make a day-of coordinator available, but there were several moments throughout the night when my husband had to step in and coordinate. We'd definitely recommend Grey Rock and Simply Elegant Catering as our overall experience was a very good one, but having a bit more hands-on coordination on the wedding night would have been a plus.

Nancy and the team at Simply Elegant Catering at Grey Rock Mansion are awesome. My brother had his wedding there 6 years ago, and when I got engaged, it was no question on where I wanted to have my reception. Their staff was on top of their game, and the food was amazing!!

Throughout this past year we worked with Diane at Simply Elegant Catering while planning my son's wedding at Grey Rock Mansion. She was absolutely wonderful to work with! She was very accommodating to all of our many requests. She had much experience to share and was very professinal and forthcoming. No detail was too small and she even made sure the courtyard was sprayed for mosquitoes before the ceremony.
The staff that worked at our event was equally impressive. There was an event before ours and in an hour they had transformed the venue into exactly what we had planned. Throughout the evening they went above and beyond to anticipate all of our needs. Even many of our guests commented on how attentive the staff members were. Grey Rock was a wonderful venue and made for a very memorable wedding!

I absolutely loved my venue! I loved the team that I had during the day of my wedding David is the BEST! Whatever I needed David and the female hostess ( I forgot her name but she is the bomb!) they made sure I had! There is no doubt that my money was spent well for the impeccable service. Diane who was my point of contact was very responsive in preparation of my big! The food, wow! I knew it was going to be amazing I attended maybe 2/3, so indecisive. They were able to make my special dish aside from what was on the menu. Guest raved about the food. I mean why NOT Grey Rock. It was so vintage romance for my themed wedding. Bill you have some great people on your team.

Nancy from Grey Rock did a great job of turning our wedding plans into reality in just six months. She was very helpful in coordinating all the details for our wedding, even though we planned for a less traditional event, from choosing the menu down to selecting the linens. We were touched that even though we were having a brunch wedding, at their quarterly tasting they made sure we had food from our menu to taste, and even brought out a special plate of the pancakes we had on our menu. On the day of the wedding, the staff at Grey Rock did a great job of keeping things moving and making sure that we had a wonderful experience. The food that was served was incredible. The venue itself was beautiful, too.

My family first worked with Nancy Sachs at Simply Elegant Catering back in 2009 for my sister’s wedding, so when I got engaged, Nancy was our first and only phone call for catering! Both my sister and I had 300+ guests for seated dinners and Nancy showed us again why we only considered her for my wedding! The food and service was absolutely amazing. Our guests are still raving about the food almost six months later. Nancy will also help you coordinate any rentals and other vendors you may need. Our tent, tables, chairs, dance floor, linens, flowers, cake, and lighting all came from her recommended vendors and each of them were just as fabulous as Simply Elegant. Nancy truly cares about her clients and makes sure they aren’t getting taken advantage of by a vendor or using someone she knows isn’t good. What a comforting feeling knowing that these important details are booked with tried-and-true vendors as well! Thank you so much, Nancy and Simply Elegant for making our wedding day absolutely PERFECT!

Words can not express how well my daughters wedding went. The food was amazing and the service was perfection. I have been in the business for over 35 years so I was obviously very picky and love details...I hired a girl that works for me too do all the personals and set up the linens....she never showed and the caterer took over. I was freaking out till I talked to the manager...he was great. We had a wonderful time and were taken care beyond your imagination...Thank you Thank you Nancy, Mr. Clowney and their AMAZING staff

Grey Rock Mansion itself is a beautiful venue that is both intimate and elegant. The staff at Simply Elegant Catering was delightful to work with. We worked primarily with Diane throughout the planning process, and she was always responsive and accommodating. She worked with us to create a menu within our budget and provided helpful guidance. The staff on our wedding day was incredible. They were professional, courteous, and super helpful. We couldn't have picked a better venue and catering company. Our wedding day turned out to be exactly how we envisioned it!! We are so happy :)
