the assembly room | industrial chic baltimore wedding venue

If you love urban industrial venues, I've got one you need to see to believe!

Included below are quick facts about capacity, logistics and what truly makes The Assembly Room a unique Baltimore wedding venue... hope you find it to be a helpful resource! 


The Assembly Room is an incredible wedding venue in downtown Baltimore, with more space and flexibility than you could ever dream of... in fact, I LOVE their tagline and wish I had coined it myself (ha!): "Bold enough to stand alone, raw enough to make it your own."


There are so many unique character-filled alcoves and photo ops within this space! The architect in me was literally drooling as I shot these... :)


About The Assembly Room:

What began in 1868 as a warehouse for feed, seed and flour has undergone an amazing transformation to open as a private event venue in the heart of Charm City. At one point it was a car wash, then in the early 2000s it was home to Hammerjacks, and finally Bourbon Street prior to its most recent renovation to establish The Assembly Room.
