This was the perfect venue to have a ceremony and reception! The venue was gorgeous and good was excellent!! Each member of the staff I worked with was so professional yet personable. Julia and Lynda were the 2 main people I worked with and I love them dearly for their help, suggestions, and constant communication! I'm so happy with them and how everything turned out that I get all teary- eyed just thinking about it. I'm so grateful to them for helping us create the perfect night! I'm really going to miss talking with them. If I could give them more than a 10/10 I would! Best decision I ever made. Except maybe if course, marrying my husband :)

I visited the mansion a total of 3 times before my wedding. Once with my fiance, once with my mom and once by myself. I never met Lynda until I dropped off my decorations. The planning process was completed through many emails. When I walked into the mansion the night of my wedding they took my breath away. Everything was beautiful and perfect. The food was just as delicious. Our guests are still raving about how great the food and service (waitstaff and bar staff) was! Julia was impeccable during our ceremony and reception I had nothing to worry about the entire evening. From the first hour to the very last minute she took care of every detail, including holding two cupcakes for us until the end of the night. I couldn't have asked for a better night or a better team. I would absolutely recommend Whitehouse Caterers to anyone who is looking for a wedding venue.

I cannot say enough good things about Whitehouse Caterers at Overhills Mansion. I booked the venue almost 18 months in advance. Through the entire process, the staff was more than helpful with making suggestions and accommodating any request I made. They even suggested a great hotel nearby that provided a shuttle for my guest.

When we arrived at the venue, everything was set up and ready to go. Lynda was amazing at taking all of my ideas I sent through numerous emails and making my vision come true. Julia assisted my guest and the entire bridal party all night.

My guest are still talking about the amazing food, drinks and professionalism of all the staff. Book this place!!

We had our wedding on a late Friday in June. It was PERFECT! From when we first walked in and saw the break-taking garden where the ceremony was held, to the staff's helpfulness with my food allergy, to planning the small details-the staff was amazing! They made it very easy to plan the wedding from a far. I was close but never felt the need to stop by except for a few times when it was necessary. We could mostly plan via email as needed. Julie helped set up all the center pieces and decorations and did a great job. It really took all the pressure of me! They have added a cement walk in the garden for ceremonies and it looks amazing. We received so many compliments on how beautiful the venue was as well as how wonderful the food was. Please don't hesitate to book at Overhills! The prices are competitive and being able to order alcohol from a distributor saved a ton of money. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

Overhills Mansion was the absolute best location for our wedding! Not only are the grounds and mansion gorgeous, but it is a great value for what you receive. The location is also fantastic if you have guests flying in as it's so close to the airport. I worked with Katherine and Lynda and they were always very responsive and answered all my last minute questions. Overhills was my first venue appointment and I ended up canceling all the others afterwards because the place is so beautiful and I knew I'd be in good hands. We had both our ceremony and reception here, and at first I wondered if having a 7:30 was too late, but we actually loved the later time and the lighting was perfect for a June wedding. The food is great and all of the bar and wait staff is equally wonderful. I can't recommend this place enough! (We had about 140 guests and the space was perfect for that size and no problems at all with dancing.)

Overhills Mansion was the first and only venue we visited before booking. The site is beautiful inside and out. Their rates are terrific for the value you receive, and the ability to supply your own alcohol using a distributor keeps the bar cost SUPER low, comparatively speaking. Everyone I came in contact with at Overhills was friendly, responsive, and professional. They kept track of my details and asked me questions or gave me reminders as my date approached, they provided a day-of coordinator who was familiar with all of my requests, and they made my planning and wedding day as smooth as it could be. The food was very good, and they had great options to choose from. If I needed changes or had special requests, they accommodated them - you want beverages for guests available before the ceremony? Sure! You want us to set up corn hole on the lawn after the ceremony? No problem! You left behind your rented items from the florist? No big deal, we'll box them up and have them waiting for you whenever you're ready to pick them up, without you having to ask. To sum it up, I wouldn't hesitate booking your wedding at Overhills Mansion. We had a terrific day, and my guests gushed about the venue, the food, and the service. And in the words of my now-husband: "No arguments, nothing unexpected, everything was done exactly how we planned, and they took care of us. Five out of five."

My Son and Daughter in Law contracted with Whitehouse Catering for their reception. I was in charge of the decor, etc. Lynda, Julia and Katherine were an amazing resource for me and the Mother of the Bride throughout the process. They were prompt in responding to our questions and concerns and were an amazing help to us every step of the way. The day before the event they were right there to help me and my team (including the MOB) to get as much done as possible so we could have as much of the wedding day as we could to enjoy. The day of, they were right there to make sure the final set up details went smoothly. They were amazingly receptive at the event and made sure every detail went as smoothly as we could expect. You can't go wrong with this choice if you want to enjoy a historic mansion in Central Maryland.

My husband and I couldn't have asked for a better wedding experience than what Whitehouse Caterers and the Overhills Mansion gave us! We had a small wedding (33 people) and I was concerned that the Overhills would feel empty. However, that was not the case. We used decorations provided by the Overhills and ended up with a beautiful, intimate setting. They went above and beyond what I expected for the decor, and handled all the fiddly things like setting up our puzzle guest book and placing the guest favors. They also transitioned from the ceremony to the reception very well!

The entire staff is amazing! Lynda and the planning team were always happy to answer my questions and accommodate my requests. My mother went into the hospital a week before the wedding, and Lynda was very sympathetic and happy to let me know about options for postponing the wedding (fortunately, my mother got patched up and we didn't have to change anything!). Bob had great menu suggestions that helped make our meal special. Everyone was always quick to respond to my emails (which was one of the reasons why we chose Overhills in the first place, too many wedding vendors seem happy to ignore small weddings). The staff that was there the day of our wedding were extremely helpful and kind. Many of our guests commented that they had a great time interacting with the servers!

The food was very good, and there was a lot of it! They do have a minimum catering fee, which can be tricky if you are on a budget. However, their prices are very reasonable for the Baltimore area. We chose the bistro steak and the duck with lingonberry for our entree, and had a bunch of appetizers. They all tasted great! My only negative note was that the steak was a bit cool in the middle. Everything was plated and presented beautifully!

We very highly recommend the Overhills! They take care of everything you need and more, all in a beautiful setting with a friendly staff!

We loved this venue! It was close to the airport and there was plenty of parking. It was a beautiful building with great places for pictures. It's old feel was very classic and big enough for 150-200 people, but had a small intimate feel as well. The staff was very friendly and worked with us through all our questions and concerns. I would definitely recommend this venue!

Soon as I visited the Mansion- I knew this was the perfect place to have my ceremony and reception. The communication among the entire staff at Overhills Mansion was wonderful. From planning, to the big day, each detail was personalized for my special day and explained with a one on one session (days prior leading to the wedding). Guests at my wedding have mentioned interacting among the service staff- everyone was very polite and respectful. From the bridal suite and after the wedding, it was great. Thanks Judy, Linda and staff at Overhills Mansion.

Lynda, Julia, Brandy, and all of the staff members at Overhills Mansion were AMAZING in helping my wedding become a dream come true. Lynda and Julia were constantly there to answer any questions I had at any time. They answered quickly and put any concerns I had to rest. Lynda was SO patient with us as we asked to come to the mansion several times to make sure everything seemed okay to us, she offered wonderful suggestions when we couldn't make decisions on placement of decorations, timing of the day, etc. They were extremely accommodating to, something very important to a bride who wants their day to be perfect. Brandy was fabulous on the day of! She was there to help us for anything and everything we needed. We were in great hands with Overhills Mansion, and if I had to re-do my day, I would still get married there. THANK YOU!!!!

Lynda and Julia were constantly there to answer any questions I had at any time. They answered quickly and put any concerns I had to rest. Lynda was SO patient with us as we asked to come to the mansion several times to make sure everything seemed okay to us, she offered wonderful suggestions when we couldn't make decisions on placement of decorations, timing of the day, etc. They were extremely accommodating to, something very important to a bride who wants their day to be perfect. Brandy was fabulous on the day of! She was there to help us for anything and everything we needed. We were in great hands with Overhills Mansion, and if I had to re-do my day, I would still get married there. THANK YOU!!!! Read less

Overhills did a wonderful and amazing job for our wedding! They went above and beyond to make our day special and carefree! I had mentioned to my contact that we were talking about using waterproof tealights in the centerpieces and asked if they could push them into the waterbeads before the reception. I never got around to purchasing the lights, but they took the time to put their own lights into the centerpieces! It was amazing :)

The food was delicious. We did a buffet style, and even though I had no appetite, it was yummy. The server asked if I wanted it boxed, which I really appreciated.

The servers were so friendly, approachable, and they fit in great with my guests. One of our features was the use of a 20 sided die to prevent the clinking of glasses. In order to get us to kiss, one person in the table needed to roll the die and see what it landed on. One of our guests asked a server to roll the die, and he did it. Then when the die ended on "tell a joke" he did it! It was wonderful. The staff worked well with my crazy ideas.

We had photos set up on the mental for deceased family members, and overhills presented them beautifully! They followed all my directions, and even accommodated me when I showed up late to drop off my stuff.

The Overhills could've not been a more perfect venue for our wedding. Not only was the venue beautiful, but they also provided on-site catering services courtesy of Whitehouse Caterers so it was like a one-stop shop...no hassle! The staff was a pleasure to work with as well. They were responsive, considerate, and really passionate about their jobs. It was nice that they provided us our personal event planner. We worked with Lynda who made all our planning so much easier and really helped in keeping us on track with so much to worry about. When the big day finally came, it was beyond our expectations. The venue was perfectly set up to fit our rustic theme. The food was delicious. The service was friendly. Most of all, our guests were amazed!

Overhills Mansion is a great place to have a wedding. From the beginning they were EXTREMELY prompt in returning emails an answering all of our questions. My mom asks a lot of questions and they were so great about getting to each and every one of them. The day of the ceremony, everything looked exactly as I imagined it. The ceremony was held in the backyard and it is such a beautiful place to have a ceremony. The reception was inside and along the porch. There was the perfect amount of space for our 115 guests. The bartenders and servers were so attentive. They always made sure my husband and I had a drink in our hand if we needed one and refused to shut down the bar before I was finished drinking. They even put together a little plate of desserts for us since we had a dessert bar and didn't get a chance to eat much that evening. The food was great as well. Everything was just perfect and I wouldn't have changed a thing! Thank you!

The entire Overhills Staff was great to us! The only negatives I have are as follows: 1.) I was told when we sampled menu items that we would have so much food that we should have our bridal party over for a tasting party, and if we didn't share with friends/family we would have more food than could fit in our fridge. This however was not the case, we would have had enough food for a complete meal for two, however after inviting ten people over, there was just enough food for each person to have one bite of each item. This wouldn't have been an issue if I wasn't told to throw a party. I was highly disappointed by this. 2.) We booked the venue about a year in advance, but could not begin to discuss planning until the wedding was much closer. as most brides know, it takes months if not years to plan the wedding of your dreams (without a wedding planner), so this was a bit of a struggle for me. For example, we could not book our rehearsal until one month prior to the wedding, yet I had to reserve a room at a nearby restaurant for the rehearsal dinner months in advance, I ended up having to reserve a room for a date that I could only hope was available at the mansion, and then scramble later to rearrange when I found out that date did not work for the mansion.

There were several things I did like about Overhills, for one thing, the food is AMAZING!! Particularly the mashed potatoes were talked about for a full week after the wedding. Also, the prices we paid for everything (even during prime wedding season) were better than any other place we looked into. The mansion is also absolutely beautiful! It was just redecorated right before our event, and they really did a great job! I also loved the bridal suite and personal bathroom just for the bride! It isn't easy going to the bathroom in a huge wedding dress, but Overhills made the process a bit easier with this! Finally, I highly recommend using their Alcohol recommendation, John was great!

Having my wedding at Overhills Mansion made wedding planning pretty easy, and I had a great time at my wedding (as did my guests). The venue is beautiful, the food was inexpensive but tasty and crowd-pleasing, and there was plenty of room for my 150 guests for a ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. When I was shopping around for venues, I was disappointed to see that the venues that wowed me were wayyy over budget, and the venues in my budget were 'ok' at best. Overhills was the exception. When my parents, fiance, and I visited, we were wowed both by the venue and the cost. What really did it for me, though, is the staff. They are so helpful, and so organized. During the whole planning process, they answered all of my questions promptly and patiently. On the actual day of the wedding, all I had to do was show up, and they took care of everything else. I had a great time at my wedding, and I am so grateful that Overhills coordinated everything!

Overhills was the best decision we made. Overhills is beautiful and unique, it don't look like on of those cookie cutter wedding venues and it is a great value. Once we picked the location, Overhills helped us to do a lot of the planning. You are not just getting the venue, you are basically getting a good bit of planning help too. If you pick this venue, you are required to use their caterer for the meal but can bring in you own cake. They let you do a tasting first to decide what you want. They are also very responsive to requests for slight changes like making things more spicy. The staff was really helpful and also friendly, it didn't feel cold, it felt like you were dealing with friends and not a business.

I loved my wedding and a big part of that was Overhills. I would highly recommend them!

The staff were friendly and helpful throughout the whole process and the food was fantastic. Their prices were reasonable and the set up is wonderful for an intimate gathering! The venue states that it can accommodate 200 guests; however; we had 130 and felt that it was just the perfect size! Linda, the event planning coordinator, was wonderful to work with, and thought of items I never would have thought of! Their seating chart sheets made it very easy to plan out the seating chart too.

We couldn't get over how great our day was and Overhills is to thank! It was such a pleasure working with the staff--Lynda and Bob especially. They were so professional and responsive and had wonderful insight! All of our guests really enjoyed the place as it has space to enjoy the outdoors as well as hang out indoors during the reception. All the guests said the food was delicious and liked the buffet. Some of our guests were even wondering why they had not known about Overhills before and wished their wedding had been there. Beautiful Mansion, beautiful garden yard, wonderful service! Thanks again!

Wow - I can't say enough things about how wonderful our wedding reception was at Overhillls. The planning process was easy, and any little question I had was answered quickly and clearly. The quality of service we received was worth FAR more than what we paid, which was an incredible value. All of the personal touches I included were laid out exactly as I had hoped, the reception itself ran smoothly and was totally stress-free, and we had a blast. Even when we had a little snafu with the seating, the floor manager Brandy took care of it immediately and let us know it was resolved. We couldn't have asked for more.

I don't think there are enough complimenting words that I can say about Overhills Mansion. From the night we saw the venue to the end of our wedding night, we experience nothing but professionalism, kindness, open ears, and helpful suggestions. They made our wedding truly amazing. Staff was MORE than helpful that night. I had a small hiccup with my flowers and their staff was down in the trenches with my bridesmaids helping to solve the situation. My guests were all taken care of with the utmost care. The food was fantastic, we had compliments from guests all night long. I must say, we felt like royalty.

If there is ever an event for us to hold again, we will with noubt book with Overhills Mansion/Whitehouse caterers. We will also recommend this place to EVERYONE we know getting married.

Thank you, Overhills!!

After looking near and far for a reception site that would fit in our budget, would comfortably accommodate our 150 guests and provide staff who would make the day easy for us, we found Overhills Mansion. We could not have asked for a smoother experience. From the beginning we received as much personal attention as we desired. After our initial view of the mansion we met with both a caterer/menu specialist and an event manager. They asked many questions to get a picture of what they could do to make the day meet our style and expectations. We chose a buffet menu from those offered but I had a special request of butternut squash ravioli (yes, in March!) and the chef made it happen. He also garnished it with an amazing hazelnut cream sauce. I imagine if we had any additional visions they would have also attended to those. And before my husband could even insist that we would not be one of those couples who missed the food at their own wedding, we were assured that we would be served while our guests were in line for the buffet. For alcohol, Overhills provided the bartenders but connected us to 40 West for the purchase and delivery of our alcohol. This allowed us to save a great deal of money and we had almost the perfect amount - just a few bottles left over and these were packaged up for us to take home. We had the opportunity to bring in our own DJ and Emcee (a friend who played songs from a play list in iTunes - saved a lot of money and assured that just the music we wanted would be played), name cards, table decorations, family photos for the mantle, a card box and, of course, the cake. Everything was delivered on the morning of the wedding and by the time guests arrived it was all arranged exactly as we had asked.

What was incredibly helpful from a very practical point of view was that the contract was very clear. It laid out the deadlines for payments, detailing what each amount went towards (space rental, catering, etc..). There was never an unexpected charge.

On the big day our maitre d welcomed us a few minutes after we arrived to our private room. She was very accommodating while also keeping us on schedule for such things as cutting the cake. She also made sure we had drinks in our hands whenever we wanted them. Because we brought our own decorations we needed a few minutes at the end of the reception to collect everything. Knowing that there was another party coming in soon behind us we were trying to hurry. The staff did not make us feel rushed at all.

If you want to be assured that everything from the food to the service and the attention to detail runs seamlessly you should choose Overhills. We felt like VIPs at our own wedding!

After looking near and far for a reception site that would fit in our budget, would comfortably accommodate our 150 guests and provide staff who would make the day easy for us, we found Overhills Mansion. We could not have asked for a smoother experience. From the beginning we received as much personal attention as we desired. After our initial view of the mansion we met with both a caterer/menu specialist and an event manager. They asked many questions to get a picture of what they could do to make the day meet our style and expectations. We chose a buffet menu from those offered but I had a special request of butternut squash ravioli (yes, in March!) and the chef made it happen. He also garnished it with an amazing hazelnut cream sauce. I imagine if we had any additional visions they would have also attended to those. And before my husband could even insist that we would not be one of those couples who missed the food at their own wedding, we were assured that we would be served while our guests were in line for the buffet. For alcohol, Overhills provided the bartenders but connected us to 40 West for the purchase and delivery of our alcohol. This allowed us to save a great deal of money and we had almost the perfect amount - just a few bottles left over and these were packaged up for us to take home. We had the opportunity to bring in our own DJ and Emcee (a friend who played songs from a play list in iTunes - saved a lot of money and assured that just the music we wanted would be played), name cards, table decorations, family photos for the mantle, a card box and, of course, the cake. Everything was delivered on the morning of the wedding and by the time guests arrived it was all arranged exactly as we had asked.

What was incredibly helpful from a very practical point of view was that the contract was very clear. It laid out the deadlines for payments, detailing what each amount went towards (space rental, catering, etc..). There was never an unexpected charge.

On the big day our maitre d welcomed us a few minutes after we arrived to our private room. She was very accommodating while also keeping us on schedule for such things as cutting the cake. She also made sure we had drinks in our hands whenever we wanted them. Because we brought our own decorations we needed a few minutes at the end of the reception to collect everything. Knowing that there was another party coming in soon behind us we were trying to hurry. The staff did not make us feel rushed at all.

We had our wedding reception at Overhills and we could not be happier with how everything turned out. We had 115 guests and felt as though that was the perfect amount. Everyone was seated comfortably and had a view of the bride and groom. The food and ambiance was absolutely fabulous!

Lynda did a fantastic job helping us plan every detail. Brandi, the floor manager, was unbelievable. She was such a pleasure to work with and definitely took the time to make sure everything was perfect for us. I would highly recommend Overhills Mansion. We couldn't imagine celebrating our perfect day anywhere else.

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Overhills this past weekend and we could not be happier with how everything turned out. Lynda did a fantastic job helping us plan every detail so that the event flowed smoothly and there were no surprises. Overhills was extremely responsive in answering all of our questions and that really put us at ease. We were able to drop off decorations, favors, etc. a few days before and when we arrived on the wedding day, everything had been set-up exactly as we planned.

We were delighted to have good weather and were able to have the ceremony out on the back lawn. The grass and trees were beautiful and they provided a nice backdrop for pictures. We did not to worry about microphones as the ceremony site was very quiet and intimate. On the inside the mansion was gorgeously decorated with fall décor and it really cut down on our decorating costs/flowers. Everyone that attended complimented the venue. We had 110 guests total which I felt was the perfect amount. All the tables had a view of us, no one was in a back corner. Any more guests than we had and it may have been a little tight.

Our floor manager was Brandi and she was fabulous! She kept everything running smoothly and was just great to interact with. While it did seem like there were quite a few rules when we were planning, on the day of the wedding, we found the entire staff to be EXTREMELY accommodating. They really made you feel like it was your day and they were there to make it great. I would highly recommend Overhills Mansion.

We chose Overhills for both our wedding ceremony and reception because of the picturesque house and yard, and for it's incredible value. There were a few pointless meetings that we had to attend in the beginning, but corresponding via email for most of the event planning worked out wonderfully. They were quick to answer any questions I had, no matter how ridiculous I sounded! We were given a free food tasting about 6 months before the wedding date. We decided on a formal sit-down dinner, and both the food and service was exceptional. The day of coordinator, Brandi was simply AMAZING!!!! She made sure that everything went smoothly and that I was taken care of every step of the way. The pictures in front of the mansion were incredible. The evening overall was everything I dreamed it would be!! I would highly recommend them to anyone!!!! GREAT VALUE for those on a budget!

We LOVED working with the Overhills Mansion! Since we didn't want to invest in a planner, the Overhills was the perfect choice! The planner, Lynda, took us through every detail to ensure that our reception was flawless. We dropped off our favors, place cards, guest book etc. the morning before and the mansion staff set everything up for us!

The mansion is decorated beautifully so we didn't need to invest much in flowers either! Overall, the food was GREAT, the staff was EXCELLENT, and we stayed within a reasonable budget. We had about 100 guests and the mansion size was perfect! We highly recommend this venue as it is a great value for the price!

On teh day of my wedding it was raining..however we had planned an outdoor wedding. The hard working people at Overhills waited until the last minute to decide and we ended up being able to have it outside. The way that they decorate the mansion I barely needed to add anything, which since I was comming from out of town made everything so much easier. I would highly reccomend this venue. The people are flexible, professional, and on top of everything. I am so happy my wedding was here.

Everyone at the mansion is amazing. We had a little set back, RAIN. We were scheduled to have the wedding outside and it rained all day. However the staff at the mansion did everything possible to still make it the most beautiful and amazing day of our lives. Eveything was still as beautiful as I imagined. The staff was amazing the whole night. THey were all very polite and catered to our every need. The mansion is beautiful and very easy to work with. My contact person was always availible and if not she always had someone standing by to help me. THe food was delish. We had steak adn chicked and they were equally amazing. I would recommend the mansion to anyone who is looking for a great wedding experience.

The place was very lovely. There are two connected floors (one is a few steps higher than the other). We're ballroom dancers, so we decided to seat all 118 guests (plus the two of us) on the upper floor, with the lower floor reserved for the band and dancing. The staff was wonderful, and there are private rooms and bathrooms for the wedding party. There is also a lovely veranda and garden in the back, which is really nice for guests to relax at.

The caterers were very nice to work with. We planning the Baltimore wedding from Boston, and they were very accommodating with our visiting/travel schedule. They let us take food sample home for example. The terms were spelled out very clearly. The food was very good, although I think the samples were a bit better--I'm not sure if that was just my high expectations though.

We had a very nice sit-down dinner with two entrees per person, along with appetizers and such. Alcohol was separate (they work with a vendor that delivers and picks up from the venue, and allows us to return any unopened bottles). For the catering we paid about $75/person including sodas, tax, and tip.

The Overhills Mansion was exactly the type of reception hall I was looking for. They included everything in their price (silverware, white linens, chairs, etc). The staff was extremely easy to work with and made our reception run without a hitch. They also gave us a list of recommended vendors (florists, dj, photographers, videographers) who had worked well with them before and with whom previous couples had been pleased with. The list made planning easier. They really made my wedding dreams come true. . .it was just what I wanted!

We held our reception at Overhills Mansion and could not have been more satisfied with our selection. All of the staff were very professional and courteous, from our initial meeting with Judy, to our event detail meetings with Lynda and menu selection talks with Bob. Everyone was available when needed and worked with us and our coordinator every step of the way, especially Lynda who helped tremendously during decor and layout decisions. Everything was explained in detail throughout the planning process and there were no "surprise" charges when we received the final bill.


We originally planned for 140 guests but ended up with 119 (plus 6 at the head table), which turned out to be a perfect number for the space. Everyone was able to be seated comfortably, could see the head table and we had a nice size area available for dancing. Anything over 125 guests (excluding the head table) and things would have been a little tight since we wanted a larger dance area. The floor manager the night of the reception was outstanding and made sure everything ran smoothly. The food came out nice and hot and tasted great!!! Our guests were definitely impressed with the venue and continue to give us compliments on the location and food.


Overall, Overhills Mansion is a great selection for a reception venue for couples working with all budget sizes. The only thing keeping us from giving all 5's is that they don't accept credit cards, which could be an issue for some. Even with this minor matter (in our eyes), we would highly recommend Overhills Mansion!

For the planning process, Lynda was superb in responding back in a timely fashion to our questions and requests! The tasting of food did take some time to schedule, but it was very good. The food on the day of the reception was excellent (the steak portions are huge)! In addition, our floor manager was very flexible in terms of timing with the toasts, the cutting of the cake, and such.

The only concern would be the space available. We had approximately 150 guests, and it felt crammed in there, with a few tables that did not have a view of us. I think the venue comfortably sits approximately 120, so please consider that! (we were like, "oh, it looks big enough").

Otherwise, the staff were very professional and friendly! Definitely recommend!

Lovely venue, great communication and flexibility with the event planner and staff. Menu was very flexible and accommodated all food allergies and preferences. Would have preferred to speak to the day-of staff in advance to work out some kinks. Food was served to each guest before the band resulting in a shift to the schedule to fit in the garter toss, bouquet toss, and cake cutting at the end of the evening. The guests did not feel rushed so this is probably just a bride's perspective! Book 5 hours if at all possible, 4 including the ceremony was not enough time. Had to return to the venue 2 days later to retrieve aisle and ceremony decorations which were not all given back at the end of the night.

Overhills Mansion/Whitehouse Caterers helped to make our wedding day extra special. Not only were they there throughout every step of the planning process with me (answering my 10,000 emails of questions), but they were always calm, ready to offer a solution to any problems we encountered, and super flexible. We were a little worried that the food wasn't going to be up to snuff, having had two tastings with them, but on our wedding day we were extremely pleased with what we were presented with. The day-of banquet manager was AMAZING as well, she was on top of every single detail and I didn't have to worry AT ALL that day. You will be in great hands if you book here. Just keep in mind that you can tweak any part of the menu you want, and that you can of course order outside linens etc.. if you want to (we did and the room looked that much more awesome!). Make sure that you clearly understand what is and what is not included in the contract (there are so many things to remember as a bride), and everything else will fall into place. =)

My husband and I had our wedding outdoors and our reception indoors at the Overhills Mansion at 7:30pm. The first time we visited the mansion, I knew it was the place I wanted to get married. Everything was beautiful, and I could picture our wedding before my eyes. The staff was great and always kept in touch with me, answering my millions of questions and helping me prepare for my wedding day. Everything was perfect for our special day - the beautiful mansion itself inside and outside, the staff working during our wedding, and the excellent food that was served. There were many great spots for pictures to be taken by our photographer which was another big plus. All of our guests absolutely loved the mansion! We are still getting compliments to this day. I hope my husband and I get to go back to the mansion one day!

Everyone we worked with at Overhills Mansion was very professional and helpful. They all responded in a timely fashion and I felt confident that everything would go smoothly on the day of the wedding. The Mansion is beautiful and comes with lots of decorations already there, which you can keep where they are or they can store them if you don't like them. They're very flexible with whatever you want.

Overhills Mansion and Whitehouse Caterers were wonderful for our February reception. All of our guests commented on how lovely the mansion was and how wonderful the food was. Overhills Mansion exceeded our expectations and all of the staff who worked the reception were wonderful, very courteous and professional. For me, the best part in terms of planning was Lynda, the event planner. She was always on top of things, responded to my e-mails and phone calls promptly, and made sure everything went off perfectly. As I could not afford a wedding planner, being able to have Lynda coordinating all the details at Overhills was the next best thing. The only reason I can't give Overhills 5 stars for responsiveness is that the catering manager often took a long time to get back to us on requests/questions we had. Ultimately, however, everything worked out with the food and it was delicious.

Working with Overhills was easy, I had no trouble getting in contact with them and they answered all the questions we had. We had 105 guests and the ballroom space was perfect. It didn't feel crowded and there was enough room for a dance floor. From what I noticed, the service was great and no one had any complaints. My in-laws surprised us with a bag & pipes band during cocktail hour and they had no problems working with the staff to organize the surprise. I thought the appetizers and the whitehouse market cart were great. For the buffet the chicken maryland was too dry, but the garlic mashed potatoes and pasta were really good. I thought the roast beef was so-so, but I had guests say they liked it a lot. Working with John at 40 West Liquors was easy. I'm glad we could chose what kind and types of alcohol to have at the wedding. At the end of the night Overhills packed up all the leftover alcohol (minus any extra beer) and gave it to us. By the time we got back from our honeymoon, John had already credited us back for the extra beer left over and Overhills had returned our deposit.

This was a gorgeous venue, I loved it for my winter wedding. Since we got married "off season" it was incredibly inexpensive but still great. They had flower arrangements we could use, built in decorating bc the mansion is so pretty. Lots of space, good staff, and very reasonable. Only down side - no flames allowed, so if you want candles on your tables or a fireplace in the winter, you have to figure a way around that (I used battery operated tealights in my centerpieces and nobody knew they were fake!).

This place is amazing and the staff is great. Besides the rain bringing good luck on our wedding day I don't have many bad things to say about the venue.
-There was a wedding before ours a my husband and the grooms men showed up 1 1/2 hour before our contracted start time and the staff on site was very rude to him and made him wait for over an hour. I believe this to be a misunderstanding.

I do have some advice to give - just to be sure none of these things happen to you.
- Be sure to set up party favors before hand, more then 1/2 the guest did not receive the party favors that were suppose to be in the foyer area as they were leaving out.
- Be sure that you let the wait staff know that your food should be prepared with everyone elses so it is not cold.
- Be sure you know who your main contat is the day of the venue - so there's no surprises.
- Please look at the plan B well before hand in case of rain - I was highly disappointed at plan B - not the venue's fault at ALL!
- Please be sure that the photographer utilizes all of the surroundings for photos if it rains and you must go to plan B - we were stuck in the ceremony area - again not the venue's fault.

On the up side...
The staff was great to work with and all of our guest are still talking about how amazing our wedding was and they loved the venuw/vintage look that we had.

I would definetly recommend working with Lynda and the other staff. This venue is reasonsable priced and has many things included and some little perks (help with the wedding day coordination).

As far as the food everyone raved about how good it was...myself and my husbands was cold. We served the Champagne Shrimp (Very good)- Crab Balls (not worth the money). Different chickens, roast round carving station and rice, green beans, salad, tea, etc...

Although we did not have our ceremony here, my entire experience with the staff at Overhills Mansion was wonderful. They were very helpful from the very beginning, and made sure to remind me of important details that I may have otherwise forgotten. I was not pleased with the food during our first tasting, but offered some suggestions and chose to go with the same 2 meal choices. At our reception, we were very pleased with the food and so were our guests. The mansion is beautiful and the price is affordable, compared to other similar venues in the area. The mansion staff helped to make our wedding day perfect for us.

The option to bring in your own alcohol was great and John from 40 Liquors was great to work with. Linda, the event planner was wonderful to work with during the planning process. She was always very responsive and helpful.
The only down sides were the fact that you can't taste the food prior to booking, and you can't have candles. However the food was excellent. We had a sit down dinner with 2 meal options plus a veg. option and we were very happy with the food the day of.

The event was very organized. The food was very good. Overall, I was very happy. You cannot taste the food until after booking but they let you get tastes of whatever you're interested in. Everything is well organized there and they have an event planner so things run smoothly. You can use their centerpieces or your own. You can display your own photos on all the fireplace mantles. Lots of food choices and affordable. You provide your own alcohol which saves a ton of money.

Overhills Mansion and Whitehouse Caterers were a dream to work with. The facility is lovely...it looked even more beautiful at night than I imagined. The entire staff from the planners to the coordinators to the servers were amazing. They were extremely organized and thorough. They kept me on my toes and I am a planning fanatic. They tended to my every need during the entire event. The food was delicious. I received many complements about the entire event. It is a great value for your money. The only downside is that they are not flexible on certain things. For instance, you cannot select the timeof your reception; you have two choices, 1pm or 7pm. They are inflexible with some of their policies, like no candles, you cannot bring your items, like favors and such any earlier than 1-1/2 hour before your event. You have to use Whitehouse Caterer. However, to me, that was a minor inconvenience. Also, not a good venue if you plan to have more than 100 guests. Highly recommended!!!

Overhills was beautiful, we got SO many compliments regarding the reception and how beautiful it was! The decor was perfect all by itself, we only had to provide centerpieces (they provide oil lamps if you like, as they don't allow candles, which was fine by us!). The rental fee and menu pricing was more than reasonable, especially for the DC/Baltimore area. The staff, and Lynda, the event coordinator especially, were all very easy to work with. Although Lynda wasn't there the evening of our wedding, their floor manager did a phenomenal job! The only complaint we had was from some guests who thought the meat was a little tough, but not everyone said that, so it just might have been a few drier pieces. I opted for the vegetarian mean (which they offer at no additional charge), so I have no idea how the meat was- the veggie meal was great! We were also lucky enough to get in 7 or 8 hours before the reception to set-up because they didn't have another event that morning, which was such a HUGE help! We had a wonderful time at Overhills and would recommed it to everyone. We even had some of our friends who are getting married in a few months express that they wish (after attending our wedding) that they had looked at Overhills instead of their current reception location!

A very beautiful venue to have a winter/Christmas wedding-- the mansion is decorated so lovely and it's the reason why we decided to have a December wedding (I originally hoped for Oct.).

The planning process was easy and well organized. Lynda (the event planner) and Bob (the menu planner) were both very easy to work with. Brandy (the day of coordinator) was very nice and hardworking as well. She brought appetizers to our sweetheart table since we didn't eat them during cocktail hour :)

When menu planning, take Bob's food suggestions: what we chose for our meal was not on the menu, but recommended by Bob, and it was delicious.

The only hiccup was when the timing of events ended up being an hour behind schedule so we had to add on an additional hour late night. I strongly recommend adding on one (or two) extra hours to your contracted time (especially IF your ceremony is also taking place here). It goes by SO fast, and the 4 hours simply isn't enough for everything to take place. So to fully enjoy it, add on more time from the start. Oh, and order more alcohol than what you are told... we ran out in the first hour and even with a second order, guests had a very limited selection.

Overall, we had a great time, and we're glad we chose to be married and celebrate at Overhills. Hope you will, too!

Overall, Overhills Mansion was an excellent choice as a venue. They are truly
affordable and the option to buy your own alcohol wholesale really saves
money. The staff and manager on the day of were excellent. The main contacts
throughout the planning process weren't as outstanding. On a few occasions
the main contacts would question the decisions that I made for my own
wedding! Besides their brusqueness, the experience was wonderful! We saved
money on flowers and decorations since the mansion was already wonderfully
decorated for the holidays. On the day of the wedding, the staff were extremely organized and helpful.

Whitehouse Caterers did an excellent job for our wedding! The planning
process went seamless, and the catering manager offered several ideas and
alternatives that we never thought of or knew would be available at the same
price. They allowed us to taste several of their items, and all of our guests

We were very pleased with how much our consultant and event planner (onsite) responded/offered suggestions throughout the planning process. The mansion is a bit old, and could use some attention to upkeep of the property.

Unfortunately, our disappointment came on the day of. Several of our guests complained of rudeness by the staff. Some of our guests even left prior to the meal service because of this rudeness. As you can imagine this has left us with a bitter taste.

Throughout the planning process, we couldn't have been more delighted and set high expectations for the day of experience. If it weren't for the complaints and losing a some of our guests, we would have given this vendor a higher rating.

Our suggestion is that, if for some reason you receive complaints address them immediately, and do not wait until after the day of to make these concerns known.

All the best.

Bob, who was in charge of catering was absolutely wonderful! He really listened to what we wanted for our Wedding meal and even made a special greek pasta salad dish just for me (which everyone loved!). When we originally sat down to see if we wanted to book Overhills, the lady we met with, Judy, made it sound like there would be a wedding planner who would be calling you all the time to make sure things were going to be perfect for wedding day. This was not the case, so we were given false hopes that first day. While Lynda was great, we had to do all of the contacting to make sure things would run smoothly on wedding day. A week before the wedding I was in panic mode because I had no idea if anything was going to be done right, if we could even HAVE the wedding outside like we wanted, and didn't know how or when the things for my wedding were going to make it to the venue. Finally the Wednesday before I caved and decided to call. While all of my questions were answered, I felt frantic that no one had thought to even call me and tell me these things. I am glad we could have the ceremony outside, but the stress leading up to that was unbearable! During the actual day it was beautiful and all of the staff were great! The only things was it was a little warm (an unusual 86 degrees in April!!!) in the reception area. Some guest asked the staff and servers to open the windows but they said no. They only opened them when my husband (after hearing multiple complaints) went up to complain...I guess they wanted to make sure the bride and groom were okay with it? Would definitely book them again, only a few minor complaints that really were no big deal and didn't ruin the day. Give some props to your bartender (the one we had on wedding day), she was absolutely fantastic!! She met me with a huge smile, complimented me on my dress and said that she was happy to be the bartender for our big day! What a way to make a bride feel special :)

A week before the wedding I was in panic mode because I had no idea if anything was going to be done right, if we could even HAVE the wedding outside like we wanted, and didn't know how or when the things for my wedding were going to make it to the venue. Finally the Wednesday before I caved and decided to call. While all of my questions were answered, I felt frantic that no one had thought to even call me and tell me these things. I am glad we could have the ceremony outside, but the stress leading up to that was unbearable! During the actual day it was beautiful and all of the staff were great! The only things was it was a little warm (an unusual 86 degrees in April!!!) in the reception area. Some guest asked the staff and servers to open the windows but they said no. They only opened them when my husband (after hearing multiple complaints) went up to complain...I guess they wanted to make sure the bride and groom were okay with it? Would definitely book them again, only a few minor complaints that really were no big deal and didn't ruin the day. Give some props to your bartender (the one we had on wedding day), she was absolutely fantastic!! She met me with a huge smile, complimented me on my dress and said that she was happy to be the bartender for our big day! What a way to make a bride feel special :) Read less

Overhills is an amazIngly affordable venue! The interior and ceremony garden are attractive and accommodating, and the staff are great to work with. They're very responsive with email on weekdays, although we had some trouble getting in touch with a specific staff member (resolved by cc'ing Whitehouse's main email address on a followup message).

The price was a huge deciding factor for us, but we were also pleasantly surprised by just how easy the planning process was. Lynda helped us through every step and was more than willing to answer any questions that came up. We didn't even have to worry about setup - we brought our decorations to them the Friday before our Sunday wedding, and they took care of everything without any problems.

There was a hitch on the day of, that my husband and I only learned about later: a server dropped a tray of fish dishes, and they hadn't prepared any backups. The table that had ordered those meals had to share the surviving dishes (which were delicious, at least).

Aside from that, everything went smoothly, and we all had a wonderful time!

I fell in love with Overhills when my husband and I first visited. Beautiful, warm, cozy feel - it was just what I always wanted. We visited a few places but none compared.

The flexibility with our payment schedule was very helpful, we both were changing jobs and moving to a new state. This was an amazing help to us.

We held our ceremony and reception at Overhills Mansion and overall it went well. The staff was professional (other than the toasting ice wine we saved for a year was tossed/taken - this really upset my husband) and courteous, particularly the bartenders. In the correspondence leading up to the wedding, the coordinators were responsive and patient. It took us a while to settle on a suitable menu, but we were happy with the choices.

There were a lot of things we could not do at the Mansion - candles, bubbles, rice, confetti etc were banned. This forced us to be creative. Some of our guests had trouble seeing because of the room layout, but everyone enjoyed themselves. Overall good experience!

We were married at Overhills Mansion (OM) last month. Overall, very good experience through the planning process and on the wedding day itself. Beautiful venue, especially the outdoor area for outdoor ceremonies. Unfortunately, we did not get to use it as it rained on our wedding day. However, the staff at OM did a very good job moving everything indoors, in a very short amount of time. The planning & catering staff was always very responsive to my communication requests, whether by email or by telephone. The only negative aspect, and the only reason why I give this venue a 4/5 instead of a 5/5, is how our wedding cake was handled on the wedding day. Many guests, including our own parents, told us that they did not receive any wedding cake. This did not make sense, as we had ordered enough cake for all the guests. A few days after the wedding, I received an email from the venue staff asking us to come pick up a whole sheet of cake that was left behind. When I asked the venue staff why they had not served that sheet cake, they told me that after they cut up & served the display cake, they did not feel the need to cut the remaining cake because no one was asking for cake. I know for a fact that the display cake would not have been enough to feed all the guests. This is why we had ordered an additional sheet cake. (It saved costs to order a sheet cake to supplement the display cake, instead of ordering a bigger display cake). The guests who did not receive cake told us that they went up to the staff who were serving cake, asking for cake, and were told that there was no more cake left. This discrepancy in story is the reason why I am giving a less than perfect score to this venue. I am inclined to believe my guests. The fact that, clearly, there was leftover cake (which now sits in my freezer) corroborates my guests' story, not the story of the venue. Otherwise, I would recommend this venue to any bride or groom looking for a wedding venue.

We were generally pleased with our experience. The coordinator who I kept in contact with before the wedding (Lynda) was WONDERFUL, very helpful and responsive. But on the day of the wedding, the mansion was not cleaned sufficiently - it was obvious that the carpeting areas weren't vacuumed, and the men's upstairs bathroom facility was subpar. One toilet in the ladies bathroom was not functioning the day of the wedding. The meals that were served in the back of the room was mostly warm (not hot), although guests did say the food was good. My mother in law's table received cold food but they were the only table to unfortunately experience that. We felt that the ballroom was cozy and just right for 105 people. I can't imagine cramming in another 20 or 30 people in my opinion. With 105 people, there was enough of a dance floor for us to enjoy. Overall, our experience was otherwise very positive.

Overhills Mansion was great. We had our ceremony and reception on location. Lynda was extremely helpful in planning the on-site coordination along with our wedding coordinator. She worked with us when at least 30% of our invited guest didn't RSVP and the catering needed to be altered at least two times.

The only downside was the A/C in the building. Its an old building with rather old A/C units. Plenty of people couldn't stay cool enough to dance for long periods of time. Many of the bridal party and guests stay attached to the A/C units to get cooled down throughout the night. That was the only thing that was displeasing to both of us.

Overhills Mansion was a nice location to have our wedding. We were able to have our ceremony and reception there, which was convenient. A big plus was that we could plan to get married outside but if the weather didn’t cooperate, they would set up inside for you. Luckily, the weather was nice for us. The useable space in the mansion is divided into a couple of rooms and includes two covered verandahs. It allowed a nice flow of people throughout the area. The ballroom had three doors that opened onto the verandah, which were kept open due to the nice weather; many guests commented that they liked how the rooms connected to the outside since usually people who go outside at a wedding feel disconnected to the events going on inside. We had about 120-130 guests, which felt like the maximum that could comfortably fit. The staff helped us plan details of the ceremony and reception we would probably never had even considered. They have a very comprehensive event planning document that really helps determine how everything should be scheduled and arranged.

The food was delicious; however, it was a very difficult process to determine the menu. I’d like to mention that if you are doing a sit down meal or buffet, this process would have been much easier and the following comments about menu planning would probably not apply. We, however, were aiming for a cocktail or appetizer type reception, where people mingled and moved around, rather than having assigned seats. It took a meeting, close to 30 emails, and a few phone calls to work out our menu. You must use the Whitehouse Caterers when having an event at the mansion. The pricing structure was difficult to understand or predict. My past experience with caterers is you order a certain amount of food (e.g. 300 meatballs, x pounds of pasta, etc.) and there is a per unit price. At Overhills, however, the price of one dish depends on what else you are ordering. I suppose this is supposed to take the guess work out of menu planning; however, it was a very frustrating process. We wound up using a food station idea, with different foods at different tables in two of the rooms. In the end though our guests kept telling us how delicious the food was so I guess all the back and forth for menu planning was worth it.

A few other things that didn’t work out as planned was that they were supposed to provide small plates to go with the food so people would understand it was not a sit down dinner. Instead, they provided regular sized dinner plates, which people filled and sat down with. This wouldn’t have been so bad except that it affected the flow of the reception and we didn’t have enough tables for everyone since it wasn’t supposed to be a sit down meal. Another issue was that we had cupcakes for dessert from a bakery and an ice cream sundae bar from the caterers at the mansion. I asked prior to the wedding if they would be able to have the cupcakes and ice cream sundae bar next to each other, which they said they could. At the time of the reception though the hostess said they couldn’t move the cupcakes. Therefore, some guests didn’t know there was ice cream and some guests didn’t know the cupcakes were available.

Overall, the atmosphere was nice, the food was good, and the guests had a great time. As a couple trying to plan a perfect event though, there were a few frustrations. I would recommend Overhills for more standard events (i.e. sit down meals or buffets) rather than trying to do something a little out of the ordinary (i.e. cocktail reception).

We wanted to find a venue where we could do the ceremony outdoors, and have the reception at the same site, and have the catering taken care of so we didn't have to find our own caterer. We found what we were looking for at Overhills Mansion, and the price was right. it was also great that we got to get our alcohol elsewhere and take the leftovers home with us. What a great idea! The outdoor setting was absolutely beautiful and it ceremony was perfect. The reception was nice, but I don't think the food was great (mine was cold) and the guests on the top portion of the room couldn't hear the music. The day of the wedding everything went very smoothly and the servers, bartenders and event coordinator did an excellent job. I didn't have to worry about anything. My only issue was the responsiveness during the planning process. As a bride, I like to be organized and plan ahead, but it was difficult to get responses from them and they didn't treat us as very important. The way they do menu tastings is to have you pick up some of your meals in containers and take them home to reheat and try. I wanted to taste all of the food, including appetizers and not out of plastic containers that we had to reheat at home and they made it seem like this was an unusual request. Not to mention that the day they scheduled for us to pick up our reheated food was on Valentine's Day! Just what we want to eat that day. We had about 100 guests, which was a perfect amount for the small room and spent over $10,000 at this venue (alcohol wasn't included), but I didn't feel that we were anything special, just another number. Overall, I think for the money spent we had a great wedding. It could just be that from watching too many shows, like "Who's wedding is it anyway?" that I expected more during the planning stages, but we have beautiful pictures and now that it's all done I am still happy we used this venue.

I loved Overhills! They seemed very reasonable as far as pricing compared to other venues we had researched. I didn't mind the fact that you have to use Whitehouse Caterers, since that just meant it was one less decision I had to make. The food at the wedding actually tasted better than it did at our tasting. We opted for the buffet, which worked out perfectly. Brandy, our wedding coordinator for the day, was super nice. She was helpful and smiling the whole night . . . always making sure my husband and I had enough to eat and drink. We had 150 guests, which is probably the maximum amount of people you should have if you want enough space for a dance floor. Luckily, it was a beautiful September night, and so we were able to utilize the outside deck. It looked wonderful out there . . . and really added a summery feel to the whole evening. The only thing I would complain about is that you can not use candles in the reception area. We used LED candles, which looked a lot better than I originally thought. Overall, Overhills was amazing!

The wedding day itself and the caterers and staff involved were amazing! The food was delicious and everything was taken care of. The grounds were gorgeous and the pictures turned out great, so all in all we are definately glad we chose them. But leading up to the day the administrative staff was not as easy. They were very quick with us on many deifferent occasions, and when I would request information nothing was done about it, but when I wrote them an email asking for the same information through my fiance's email address they responded. Little things that turned us off, but the day itself went beautifully!

Working with Overhills was mostly a positive experience, but I would not recommend them to a friend. At first, the beginning, they were wonderful. The event planning staff was responsive to my emails and were typically prompt in replying. When the wedding got closer, the communication was worse. We had to check in with them about the dates of tastings (they only do a few a year), and had we not asked when we did, we never would've gotten to try the food prior to setting the menu, as the tasting was just a couple weeks from when we asked. For the rehearsal, you can only schedule it one month in advance, and by that time, they couldn't accommodate our date preference (the Thursday before our Friday wedding) because they had an event that night. Yet when my husband dropped off our items for the wedding on the date we wanted for the rehearsal, he was told we were the first event of the weekend, so they were going to set everything up right then. Clearly, they didn't have an event that night, so I'm not sure why we were told they did. The day of the wedding, the service was inconsistent. The staff was friendly and responsive to us, but there were other mistakes. We chose to do plated dinner because we were told it'd be the fastest option. Dinner took nearly 2 hours for only 100 guests, and because of the way it was served, some tables were completely finished eating before others had even gotten their meals. This ended up taking an hour out of dancing, so the reception felt very rushed at the end. Had we not previously paid for the extra hour of service, there would've been only 10-15 minutes of dancing! I found out the next day that they also set the incorrect number of chairs and place settings at one of the tables, so my aunt had to sit at a separate table from her husband.

Dinner took nearly 2 hours for only 100 guests, and because of the way it was served, some tables were completely finished eating before others had even gotten their meals. This ended up taking an hour out of dancing, so the reception felt very rushed at the end. Had we not previously paid for the extra hour of service, there would've been only 10-15 minutes of dancing! I found out the next day that they also set the incorrect number of chairs and place settings at one of the tables, so my aunt had to sit at a separate table from her husband. Read less

Overall, Overhills Mansion was ok, however, I found them to be lacking in customer service. Not only did they unexpectedly raise their prices by a great deal per person, due to "gasoline" prices, I found them to be very inattentive during my reception, not refilling my water glass at all. My wedding cake and silver cake plate were very expensive, and the I believe that the staff indulged in eating my cake, as many of my guests commented that they did not get a piece, I bought more than necessary, and there were no pieces left over. I never got my silver cake plate back. Overall, while they were less expensive than many places in Baltimore, you often get what you pay for. Incidentally, I never received a thank you note from them, after spending a great deal of money with their company, which I believe, is very poor customer service.

A little like a roller coaster ride with the venue throughout the process, but the actual wedding day was great. It's a beautiful venue, which is why we chose it...not for the food, the service, or anything else. You pretty much get what you pay for, but it is a great value for the atmosphere you get. If you have a specific vision of what you want for your wedding day and not willing to budge, this is not the place for you. They're pretty strict about what you can and can't do, but they are somewhat willing to work with you. The meetings they make you come to aren't really productive; the hours during which they schedule them aren't convenient either.Even though they're a catering company, you don't actually get a tasting of the food you choose (well, you can for $100). If you do want to try the food, you have to settle for the leftovers of someone else's event, pick it up at their convenience, and heat it up yourself. Most everything can be done through email, and once you get to communicating with the planner, Lynda, responses are quicker and the level of concern for your event gets better. Be patient with them--you will certainly need it. The food was okay...the shrimp in our shrimp and steak combo were seriously almost invisible they were so small, but for the most part it tasted good; the shrimp from our tasting were a lot bigger, so it was misleading. Overall, pretty good service throughout. The day of the wedding was great and the pictures turn out fantastic!

We were told that the day of coordinator would set up our unity ceremony, let us ladies and the groomsmen know when to leave the rooms for the ceremony and make sure that everything ran smoothly...

There was NO day of coordinator. We talked to ours, Julia, the day before the wedding at the rehearsal and she told us what she would be doing the next day. Then she never showed up. Everything ran extremely late. The staff didn't know we were doing introductions, which caused everything to run even later. But when you have a 4 hour rental time, and the time it takes you, the bride, to organize the whole wedding (with help from the best man and bridesmaids) it's completely unprofessional. I am so extremely disappointed with Overhills - especially since my mother-in-law knew the people that run the business and they told us they really wanted to do something extra to make it special for us.

PROS: we really liked that it was BYOB

Food was ok, not great, but ok.

Whitehouse Caterers at Overhills Mansion, circa 1897 responded with the following comments:

To prospective brides and grooms... We are saddened to read the above because we believe that wedding days are so special and should be remembered in a wonderful way. We are also shocked to hear this news 4 months after the event because we had no idea that the bride felt this way. The day of her event she was happy as were all her guests and we received so many compliments. She stated that she was not happy with the mansion staff, citing that they were not doing their job, but she complimented the catering staff, “they were attentive and worked with us so we could get things moving”….. There is no mansion staff, everyone who works at Overhills Mansion works for Whitehouse Caterers. When our staff was helping her with her schedule and helping her with her guests, we were doing as we promised. We have several managers and they are all wonderful, unfortunately she believed that Julia was going to be her manager. Julia was managing another event at our other facility and never promised the bride she would be her manager. Perhaps the confusion arose from the fact that Julia really wanted to be at her event because she has known this bride's mother in law for almost 15 years. Unfortunately there are many misconceptions in this letter, for example, you can have a 6 hour event at Overhills Mansion; this bride chose a 4 hour event. Since this letter says many negative things about Julia, I think it is important to say the following. Julia is a valued member of our staff and she receives many thank you notes for her efforts with the brides and grooms she works with. Julia went above and beyond for this bride as well. Because of Julia's friendship with the brides mother in law we allowed her to come in 2.5 hours early at no additional charge, gave her a complimentary fruit display, complimentary colored linen, complimentary gourmet coffee flavors and Julia even came into work on a day we were closed, Good Friday, just so this bride could have her rehearsal when she wanted it.

The venue is beautiful and the event planning staff Lynda, Judy, are phenomenal. However there seems to be a LACK of communication occurring between the event staff and the caterer (or Chef). My fiance and I from day 1 made our acute nut allergies well KNOWN!!!!! I documented the conversations not only verbally but via email. Somehow the chef that evening did not get the memo and served my fiance and I along with our guests Green beans with ALMONDS. We had requested only green beans. I had an horrible allergic reaction on my wedding night at my own reception!!!! Not to mention my aunt found a whole plastic label in her FOOD!!! No one apologized and no one acknowledged that either transgression was made. I could not believe that they had put nuts in the green beans. To say I am disappointing with the quality assurance of the food is an understatement. Overhills screwed up our food tasting and then screwed up our wedding reception menu. at $84 a plate there is no excuse to have poor execution and absolutely NO QUALITY ASSURANCE. I was devastated ... and suffered an allergic reaction for 3 days from the almonds.
