We LOVED the castle! We had both our ceremony and our reception here. It was beautifully decorated, leaving nothing for us to do to improve the appearance. When we originally booked the venue we worked with Maria, who was not the easiest person to work with. However, Maria has retired and they have since brought on a new staff person. The new person was wonderful to work with and could not have been nicer or more helpful. We could not have asked for a more beautiful historic venue and would highly recommend the castle!

The unique character of this venue was spectacular! The tables and chairs were included in the rental fee which was nice b/c they were not your typical cheap chairs. There are a lot of rules to using the Castle, but all are understandable since it's so old and also serves as a school. All of our guests loved the venue and I enjoyed working with the staff to make our day perfect. The bridal suite to get ready in was beautiful as well!

Maryvale is honestly a great facility and has a great staff, but, like any venue, you have to understand your event's needs. For us, we knew our crowd would really benefit from feeling like they were in a classy place that had clear distinctions and opportunities to group and mingle. Maryvale's combination of open outdoor spaces (the patio), cozy indoor spaces (the library, solarium, and groom's parlor), and gorgeous great hall filled every requirement we needed - a great place to put everyone for eating, a convenient spot for the bar, a good nook for our photobooth, a large, acoustically fantastic place for dancing and partying, and a nice, quiet room with built-in seating and flow where our introverts could relax but still be a part of things. Maria was also fantastic, answered our questions in a timely manner, and was very reasonable about our decorations. For all those positives, we're not marking five stars for a couple of reasons - depending on the political landscape of the Catholic church, parts of the facility may be closed off. The bishop's current administration wants the facility to focus on being a school and chapel first, so events are getting a little less precedence. This also means that if Catholic iconography bothers you, you won't have a lot of options. The facility is also difficult to tour because the staff doesn't have time to offer tours, so they farm it out to their caterers. That means you have to work around two sets of schedules in order to view the facility.

If none of that bothers you (or if, indeed, you're Catholic and want to do a combination ceremony/reception in Baltimore county), Maryvale is a great place for a really solid price. We loved and can't imagine having celebrated our wedding anywhere else.

I was excited about the idea of getting married in a castle, but Maryvale did not give me my fairytale wedding. They rush you in and out and wouldnt even let the bride use the empty bridal suite while the caterers are setting up (well without charging $500 an hour extra). Needless to say I felt quite rushed and stressed before my wedding. We didn't have enough time before the wedding started to take as many pictures as I wanted, or to even have a moment to breath. It was very hot inside the castle at the end of June, contrary to what I was told about there AC system. Then they closed the open bar 30 minutes before your wedding ends, so everyone leaves early. Also, there are no guarantees you can have a rehearsal the night before. This venue could not care less about the couple getting mattered either.

This venue is absolutely stunning! Maria was a pleasure to work with. There are a few constraining rules, but it is understandable given the history and age of the location. The "home" atmosphere made our wedding seem even more personal and intimate. I can't wait to come back in 10 years to celebrate there again!

I could not have dreamed of a better location to have our wedding. Words cannot express how beautiful this venue is - so breath taking and unique. Our guests will not stop raving about how goregous it was. In my opinion, you cannot choose a better place! Perfect in every way.

If you are looking for a unique, elegant and beautiful venue Maryvale is the place. We had our wedding here recently and it was amazing. Many of our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. The only drawback is the size of the venue. It can only accomodate 80 or so inside for dinner...and you will have to factor in the extra cost of flaps and heaters to accomodate folks outside. They also only allow 2 caterers on site...but Linwoods is amazing esp Sherri. And Maria at Maryvale was wonderful to work with. Between those two powerhouse women I did not need a wedding coordinator. If you are thinking about booking Maryvale I recommend you do it...you will not be dissaponted.

The Castle at Maryvale is a picturesque location that is perfect for the fairytale wedding. Maria is amazing and full of great ideas to really make the most of the space. My guests were so impressed with the venue that we are still getting compliments. We fell in love with the space the moment we laid eyes on it, so happy we became husband and wife there.

We had our wedding at the Castle at Maryvale in June. The castle provided a gorgeous setting for our special day. One nice thing about the castle is that you don't really have to decorate if you don't want to or can't afford it because it already has so much character and beauty on its own. The staff was great and we got so many compliments from our guests on how unique and beautiful the castle was. I highly recommend the Castle at Maryvale to any bride looking for a stunning venue!
