On the corner of Chase Street and St. Paul, sits a historic architectural gem that was built in 1879 and still shines 136 years later. Chase Court is a Baltimore venue that encapsulates the history of Baltimore in the Mount Vernon area. Brides, who are new to the area, have a hard time getting over that this stone Gothic-style building is in the heart of the historic Mount Vernon district. The neighborhood’s brownstones and townhouses represent a cross-section of 19th century architectural styles, including Georgian, Greek Revival, Renaissance Revival, and Beaux Arts.
Now that you have an image of the area, try to picture it with snow on the ground and with a frost on the windows. The fireplace inside Chase Court roaring, while your wedding ceremony is taking place facing the gorgeous Gothic windows. Your guests meandering around the venue from the library to get cocktails to the ballroom. Some of them even sneak outside to get some fresh air with their coats on, as they take in the beauty of the outdoor gardens. Forgetting that they are even in a major metropolitan city.
That was similar to the setting of Molly and Ryan’s Winter Wedding at Chase Court. Molly and Ryan’s winter wedding took place at 10:30 a.m., so the wedding menu was a beautiful, light brunch buffet. We started with a block of bleu cheese, brie, glazed walnuts, fresh grapes and crackers on the appetizer table. In addition to a fresh fruit platter and an assortment of freshly baked muffins.
Then, for the main meal we served warm biscuits with turkey, ham, sausage gravy, jam, fruit jelly, honey rosemary butter, sliced strawberries, and mayonnaise offered on the side. We also served crab and cheddar cheese quiche that went well with the quiche Lorraine with bacon. We accompanied this with a field greens salad with toasted almonds, dried cranberries, crumbled feta cheese and raspberry vinaigrette. Of course we had grilled asparagus spears with lemon zest too.
