Westminster Hall is a beautiful historic building located at the intersection of Greene and Fayette Streets in downtown Baltimore. The exterior of the Hall retains its early Gothic Revival appearance and the interior is a blend of the old and new with a tiered stage, elegant stained glass windows, balconies, a fully restored 1882 Johnson pipe organ, dressing room for weddings, a service kitchen, and plenty of room for all kinds of celebrations! The Hall can accommodate up to 250 guests, but is still intimate enough for a group as small as 50. Both your Wedding Ceremony and Reception can be conveniently held in our beautiful Hall – in this case the Hall can comfortably accommodate up to 175 people, including the Bridal Party.

History of the Building and Grounds: Westminster Hall, formerly Westminster Presbyterian Church, was completed in 1852 - more than 60 years after the Westminster Burying Grounds were established. The Burying Grounds are the final resting place of many famous people, including Edgar Allan Poe, General Sam Smith, and General James McHenry, not to mention many other important figures essential to the founding of both Baltimore and the United States. To avoid disturbing the existing graves, the original church building was constructed on brick piers above some of the tombs, creating catacombs, which can be toured by visitors. The church’s congregation disbanded in 1977 and the Westminster Preservation Trust, Inc., a non-profit organization, was established to take care of the building and the grounds. The Trust was able to raise more than $1.7 million for the renovation of the building, which was completed in 1983. The renovated building is now used as a rental facility and is the perfect place to hold a unique and memorable event!

The hunt for a wedding venue was over the second I set foot in Westminster Hall. The floor to ceiling stained glass, massive pipe organ as the focus of the room and unique architecture sealed the deal for me. It was only after I fell in love with the look of the venue that I found out all the other perks: great air conditioning for the humid June 1 date we had set, fabulous staff that were responsive and wonderful to work with and even tours of the catacombs during cocktail hour as an option (this was a HUGE hit with our guests). Mary Jo took care of any questions I had so promptly and was so sweet and there was a building manager there the entire day of to help with everything we needed. We are so pleased we found Westminster Hall. It was a beautiful day and was in no small part due to our venue.

When my fiance and I first walked into Westminster Hall - he fell in love with it! It was super unique and perfect for our wedding!! We met with Chris several times and he is a super nice guy!! Mary Jo also did a great job coordinating with us throughout the process. Their pricing structure is a bit weird but that's because its a non-profit and Mary Jo does a good job of explaining everything.

Make sure you ask for Bruce during your wedding! He was super amazing!!! What a personable guy and he just let us do our thing and stayed out of the way yet was very helpful throughout the entire event! Westminster is absolutely BEAUTIFUL so its worth the money!! The red pillars do stick out in photos but if you get the right photographers - they can mask that. I would highly recommend hiring an organist - it was super dramatic and gave the ceremony a very "traditional" affect which is what we both liked.

My only main criticism and the reason why I marked Westminster down for flexibility was their 5 hour maximum renting rule. I don't know if this could even be changed but it is entirely too short of a time for a wedding venue!! I would have paid extra for more time and despite the AMAZING event and duration - I was left still hyper and dancing while we had to leave. Otherwise, book this venue!! They are truly great. The value is worth it - you just have to pay a little more for table/chair rental but its okay - I promise you the history of this place will have your guests talking about your wedding for a very long time!!

Westminster Hall was absolutely perfect for us as a ceremony AND reception site. The hall itself is incredible-- the organ, the original oak floors, the cartacombs, the second "tier," the balcony. Everything is so unique and perfect for making a special day.

If you book this hall for your reception, though, know that you are ONLY booking the hall. Some venues provide contact people who work as mini coordinators, but Westminster does not. Joanne was so nice and answered our questions well up to the day of the event, letting us do walk-throughs and meeting with us. But the day of the event, there was one person there to unlock the door and lock it at the end. (I preferred it this way, since my caterer and DOC took care of everything, I just thought that it should be said).

It's also nice that they only do one wedding a day, and you have the hall for up to four hours before the event begins for set up. We also left things like the favors, table number signs, and guest book there Friday night after the rehearsal, which made it easy on everyone.

I couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else. Just perfect.

I love all things goth and dark. Halloween is my favorite holiday. I wanted a non-traditional ceremony/reception for my wedding and Westminster Hall was the best choice. I had a beautiful wedding in a graveyard setting (sort of) which is exactly what I wanted. It was perfect for me and my black/goth theme.

Bruce was our staff person for the rehearsal and the wedding. He went above and beyond his duties for our wedding. He helped unload our decorations, alcohol, etc. the night of the rehearsal. He was also very patient when we went over the one hour time limit by 20 minutes. The night of the wedding, Bruce helped with clean up and loading. He was right there to direct the hearse (my transportation) to a secured parking spot. Bruce did an outstanding job.

I wouldn't call them complaints, but here are the reasons why I gave Westminster Hall a 4.8/5.0: I wanted my wedding date to be October 30 (All Hallow's Eve) but the Edgar Allen Poe Society books it every year for their annual Halloween bash. Not really anyone's fault, and I most definitely understand the significance. My other problem is the rental time limit. I don't understand why there is a 5 hour time limit. My wedding started at 7pm, and I would've paid for an additional 1-2 hours to make it last longer.

Overall, I am extremely happy with this venue. My guests loved it. "Unique" was the most popular word to describe my wedding, just what I was going for. They said it was "me" all the way. It was beautiful (especially at night). Although the rental fee turned out to be more than we wanted to spend on the venue, it was well worth it. It kind of evens things out, though. Having the ceremony at the hall cut the costs of having it at a church.

If you're having a Halloween/Goth wedding, Westminster Hall is the perfect place! Don't get me wrong, it's also perfect for other events, as well. The Johnson pipe organ still plays beautifully. The stained-glass windows and lighting surrounding the venue make a romantic setting.

My nephew (3 yrs. old) was the ring bearer. He refused to walk down the aisle and cried pretty much the whole time because he said the "flying man" was bothering him. He also kept saying he didn't like "the downstairs" (no one told my nephew about the catacombs underneath the building and he was never taken down there). So, if you believe in ghosts, this may not be the best place for children. It spooked quite a few people out that night. My family is still talking about the ghosts of Westminster Hall. I loved it!

A great looking place. Historic exterior looks great in evening lighting. Multi-level building makes for great wedding pictures. Staff is very communicative.

Things to look out for:
- Fire engine red hand rails. They stick out in pictures.
- No aisle runners or flowers on the floors.
- Renting your own furniture can end up being pretty pricey.

We were looking for a reception venue in the city that could hold up to 200 people and that wasn't a typical hotel ballroom. So many places are too small, and other venues that are large enough are really expensive. Westminster Hall was perfect! Plenty of space (we ended up with only 150, but it was nice not to worry about it), a reasonable price (make sure you do the math on all of the extra little fees. I think they could simplify their pricing structure a little), handicapped-accessible, a city location close but not too close to the inner harbor, and a gorgeous and unique space! Our guests loved wandering the cemetary and taking the catacombs tour during cocktail hour. And they loved the beautiful space!

Mary Jo and the entire staff were great to work with. We were able to drop things off the day before. We were able to hire a police officer through them to patrol the area in the evening. Also, they have 200 dark gray molded-plastic conference chairs that you can rent for $1 each! They're very comfortable and sooo much more affordable than other rental chairs.

What a fantastic space. We went into Westminster Hall as the last of the venues we saw, and we immediately knew that it was perfect for us. It's such a grand space, but because the room isn't just a big empty floor space (there's a "stage" of sorts, a balcony, and a kind of tier on either side of the room), it didn't seem too big for our small-ish wedding of <90 people. Our wedding was hot (it was August, after all), so we had the cocktail hour inside, but there's outdoor patio space for cocktail hour as well. We also made use of the catacombs tours, and the guests thought that was really neat. Joanne and Mary Jo were wonderful to work with, always willing to answer and (and all!) of my questions and didn't seemed bothered at all when I needed to poke my head in to the space again to work out a few things. We had a lot of people coming from out of town, so the location was nice because it was close to many hotels and the Inner Harbor. If you're looking for a kind of non-traditional space that isn't too non-traditional, check it out. You might be as pleasantly surprised as we were!

They were very responsive and helpful any time we needed to talk to them about anything. The tours were fantastic, and the whole place was absolutely stunning. I couldn't have asked for a better venue! It was perfect for our non-traditional vow renewal :) Very very worth it!

If you're looking for one-stop shopping, Westminster Hall is your venue! You would think that it would be a fiasco tearing down after the ceremony and setting up for the reception, but it was the complete oppositve...20 minutes TOPS and very unobtrusive! The historical and cultural aspects of this venue are what make it so unique...you won't feel like you're in downtown Baltimore, that's for sure! The Edgar Allan Poe burial site along with the other graves o various Baltimore historical figures is an added bonus and looks PHENOMENAL in photographs. Inside the venue, the stained glass windows, hardwood flooring, and floor to ceiling organ pipes are astonishing! PLEASE go with Westminster Hall...affordable AND stunning!

This is a great value and and fantastic venue for both the ceremony and the reception. The pipe organ, stained glass windows and lovely architecture provide a wonderful ambiance for the ceremony. Then the hall transforms easily into a super party room! The fact that the dining tables sit on a raised platform that wraps around the dance floor is terrific. Everyone is close to the action but not so close that it interfers with the dancing. And our guests enjoyed the tours of the historical catacombs and E.A. Poe monument during cocktails!
The management was delightful to work with. The administrative staff was readily available by phone and email and very cooperative and flexible. The building managers were very nice and very helpful. On the day of the wedding, Bruce was right there for anything we needed and totally on top of whatever we hadn't thought of.
It was a wonderful experience and we would certainly return for future events.

Westminster Hall is an incredible venue at an extremely reasonable rate. The staff, especially Rebekkah, is absolutely amazing to work with and is very accommodating. Our guests enjoyed the uniqueness of the venue and took full advantage of the historical site, including a tour of the catacombs that were arranged during the cocktail hour. I also loved the fact that Westminster Hall will only book one event a day- that gives plenty of time for vendors to set up!

The service I got from the coordinator - Rebekah was outstanding. She did everything she could to please us. In actuality the follow-through and communication from her was the best of any vendor - simply outstanding. They were flexible in meeting our needs. While they are affordable - the extras do add up - so just make sure to go over that with them before making any final decisions. But they are great answering any questions you may have. The night of the wedding - staff was a bit scarce - but finally we figured out who did what. In fact that was probably the only reason I cannot give a "5" - I had guests asking who was giving the tour etc.. other than that - an awesome place!

We were looking for a "non-traditional traditional" venue for our interfaith wedding, and Westminster Hall gave us exactly what we wanted- the feeling of a church (to satisfy one of us) without it being a church (to satisfy the other one of us). Westminster Hall is a decommissioned, historical Presbyterian church that it now owned by the University of Maryland, Baltimore, and is used for lectures and other programs. We were very pleased with the venue, which we used for both our ceremony and reception. Our guests loved that it was not the typical hotel ballroom setting, they loved being able to explore the grounds (Edgar Allen Poe is buried in the churchyard), and they loved that the ceremony and reception were in the same location! They have a HUGE pipe organ that we used the organ during the ceremony, which was awesome. The dance floor is huge, and there's plenty of areas for the guests to mingle. I would highly recommend this venue. There's not much of an area to get ready in, so I would get dressed before I arrive. Also, there's only one "bridal room", so there's really no place for the groom to hang out separately if you're doing your ceremony here. But that's easy to work around. The location is beautiful, it's convenient to get to, and your guests will really get a kick out of the setting.

I loved Westminster hall. It is so beautiful. Unfortunately the day of the wedding a girl who was suppose to be there at 7am to let us in, did not show up until after 8am. She was rude and seemed aggravated that we were even there. Other than that everything went nicely.
