Last November, we had the privilege of being the Day-Of Coordinator for a lovely wedding that took place at the Great Room at the Historic Savage Mill (built in 1820) in Savage, Maryland.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Historic Savage Mill is a 19th century textile mill that has been restored and adapted to become the region’s most unique home design and arts/craft retail center.

The Great Room comes with vaulted ceilings, 14-foot windows, sky lights and a large dance floor.



Here is the front entrance of the Great Room.


The large windows allow plenty of sunlight and the green trees seen through the windows complement the vast white walls.


My favorite aspect of the room is the juxtaposition of the chandeliers and the large exposed vents.


If you decide to hold your ceremony at the Great Room, you could hold it on their deck that overlooks the little Patuxent River.


The red wood, bricks and lamp post give a different feel AND similar feel from the great room — sort of a rustic elegance.  (Please excuse my photos.  It took the pics on a rainy Saturday morning.)


One of my favorite aspects of the Historic Savage Mill is its surroundings.  They would make a cool backdrop for engagement and wedding pictures.


I found this old bridge to be quite charming.  Can’t you imagine an engagement photo or a wedding photo taken on the tracks.

Before we took care of the bride and groom that got married at the Great Room, we had no idea where Savage, Maryland was located.  Savage is a historic town located in Howard County, Maryland, about 12 miles south of Baltimore and 20 miles north of Washington, D.C. It is situated close to Laurel and Columbia.

The Great Room can accommodate up to 300 wedding guests, and it is reasonably priced.  The rental fee for the Great Room on a Saturday evening is less than $3,000.  To book the room, you should call their caterer, Putting on the Ritz, at (301) 490-1668.

One little drawback — I am not a fan of the fact that it is connected to a home design and arts/craft retail center (it does have the most adorable stores though).  If you can get past that, it’s worth checking out.

Love & Soul Always, Kay
