The Ceresville Mansion is a vintage estate located in trendy Frederick, Maryland and has been serving the greater Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan area couples for 30 years. Built in the late 1800s, the mansion is situated on 26 acres bordered by the Monocacy River. At this elegant and historic destination, couples will find a vintage mansion surrounded by custom landscaping, a wisteria-covered pergola overlooking a reflecting pool, and a grand ballroom with a hardwood dance floor. The ballroom allows for several set-up options to match the vision of your wedding.

Facilities and Capacity

Couples can invite up to 200 guests to celebrate their wedding day at the Ceresville Mansion. This luxurious event space features indoor and outdoor locations for staging. Outdoors, couples can host their wedding ceremony and cocktail hour on the garden terrace. The garden space features a stunning reflecting pool and a stately white pergola that perfectly frames couples as they exchange vows and begin their lives together. At night, the garden comes alive with magical fairy lights. Couples have the option to take wedding portraits on the 26-acre property with mountain views or with the grand manor house in the background. Inside, the ballroom welcomes guests for a seated wedding reception or cocktail buffet. The large windows let the natural light stream through, adding depth to the surrounding white walls and complimenting the columns with ornamental gold capitals.

Beautiful Venue – the Total Package!

I cannot recommend the Ceresville Mansion highly enough. We were originally supposed to get married there on May 3, 2020, and with the initial shutdowns due to COVID, we had to reschedule to September 13, 2020 with about six weeks’ notice. The staff here were so incredibly helpful every step of the way. The space is gorgeous, the outdoor areas are picturesque and well maintained, and the food was absolutely delicious. This place really is a package deal and 100% worth the cost.

Fantastic experience!

We had our wedding there last month and could not have had a better experience. Excellent food, excellent ambiance and very helpful staff who seemed just as excited about our day as we were. We can’t say enough good things about Ceresville, and neither can our guests!

Ceresville was one of the first venues we looked at. We toured about six venues in total, but Ceresville kept being on the top of our list for the venue’s history and charm, beautiful outdoor spaces, catering already included, and proximity to a downtown area to entertain our guests over the weekend. Once we selected Ceresville for our Saturday evening wedding and started the planning process, we knew we made the perfect choice. We had about 100 guests attend our ceremony under the pergola and reception in the ballroom. We would 100% recommend Ceresville to anyone looking for a unique and beautiful venue in Frederick.

Planning anything during a pandemic is hard enough due to the uncertainty and all the restrictions in place. However, Ceresville mansion staff made two very special days in my life beyond perfect during these trying times. I can’t say enough wonderful things. Thank you so much for helping to make two of the most special days in my life amazing.
