If you love the idea of a rustic wedding but you envision more of a modern chic look and timeless elegance to your day, Rosewood Farms is your venue… especially if you want a barn wedding but you don’t want a dark barn!
Rosewood Farms, a new wedding and event venue in Elkton, MD is all sorts of gorgeous and I can’t wait to show you the spaces that make it so special to get married here!!
Disclaimer: when I visited and took these photos, it was in February and the landscaping wasn’t complete. You can imagine how gorgeous it will be once leaves are on the trees and greenery and blooms surround everything! ;)
Included below are quick facts about capacity, logistics and what truly makes Rosewood Farms a unique Maryland wedding destination (with easy access from Baltimore, Washington DC, Delaware and PA); hope you find it to be a helpful resource!
ABOUT ROSEWOOD FARMS:
Before buying the 44 acre property in May of 2017, it was a winery and poultry farm. Now, the property has been transformed into a prestigious wedding and event venue, with no detail overlooked!
INTERESTED IN HAVING YOUR WEDDING AT ROSEWOOD FARMS? HERE ARE SOME QUICK FACTS:
With barn venues and rustic chic weddings being so popular, what makes Rosewood Farms unique?
The Rustic Barn is a showstopper! Built on the stone foundationof the original barn, this is a rustic chic ceremony space like no other. The mezzanine balcony overlooking the ceremony is perfect for photo opportunities as well as ceremony musicians; the space directly beneath the ceremony (the original barn’s foundation!) serves as a great cocktail hour space that opens onto the patio with views of the pond just a short walk away.
For weddings, all spaces are included in rental of the venue. They are climate controlled, handicapped accessible, and have restrooms. With getting ready suites only a few steps from the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception sites, it doesn’t get much more convenient than this!
How many guests can be accommodated for a seated dinner?
The 6,000+ square foot Rose Barn venue is spacious enough to hold a reception for up to 275+ guests. With 20’ ceilings, an 8’ chandelier and a grand stone fireplace, there is no shortage of space, character and elegance to add to your day! The rocking chairs right outside on the patio overlooking the pond, are such a perfect place to take in the view if you need a break from dancing!
The Silo Bar at the back of the reception space is so unique and large enough to fulfill all of your beverage needs with seating and a counter along the wall extending around the perimeter (I told you… the Rosewood family has thought of everything for you and your guests to have the best time!)
Where do guests park? Surface parking lots are available on-site.
How many events are hosted per day? Just yours!
Are there spaces for the bridal party to get ready on site?
Yes and gorgeous ones at that. The Suite is an intimate cottage-like farmhouse that has been transformed into the perfect place for your bridal party to get ready comfortably and just a short walk to the ceremony at the Rustic Barn!
Two beautifully decorated dressing rooms have space for you and your bridal party to get dressed, while the hair and makeup space is expansive, has great lighting and lots of comfortable seating.
The kitchen, dining area and sitting area all have tons of seating and amenities to help put your mind at ease before you see each other for the first time!
The Lounge is the perfect place for the guys to unwind and hang while they get ready: a pool table, leather couches, wooden barn doors (heyyyy perfect portrait spot!) and outdoor patio access make this space a groom’s dream come true!
Are outside caterers permitted?
With superior service and high quality food, Rosewood Farms has hand-picked caterers for you to choose from. This is the only vendor you are required to select from their list. See it here! The kitchen shown below is part of the Suite where your bridal party can get ready and enjoy all the snacks, sandwiches and mimosas…
Is a representative from the venue going to be on-site for the duration of the event?
Yes! A Venue Manager will be there to make sure everything associated with the venue runs smoothly. If you would like more personalized assistance on your wedding day, you should consider hiring a Day-of Coordinator to help move things move along smoothly. +(Note: this is not required by the venue, but as a photographer who has seen countless instances of how integral and priceless a good coordinator/planner can be, I highly recommend you consider one rather than have a family member helping in this role!)
Are there nearby hotels for guests to stay?
An Embassy Suites, SpringHill Suites and Courtyard Marriott are approx. 15-20 minutes away, in Newark, DE.
What does it cost to host a wedding at Rosewood Farms?
Rental rates are provided upon request and vary depending on the time of year and day of the week.
