Q: What are our responsibilities at the end of the party? Hebron House must be returned to the state in which it was found; furniture returned to original position, renter's property (decorations, dishes, linen, leftover food, etc.) removed; lights out; trash to the dumpster on the property.
Q: What is the full address of Hebron House? GPS systems work best if you give the full address to the House, rather than that of the church property. Use: 2331 Calvin Circle, Ellicott City, MD 21042
Frequently Asked Questions about events held in the Mt. Hebron Amphitheater
Q: What if it rains? When a deposit for renting the amphitheater is received, the renter is also put on the calendar for our church sanctuary as the "Rainy Day Plan B."
Q: Where will my guests find a restroom? The manager will have either the church or Hebron House restrooms available for patrons.
Q: Is there a dressing area for the bridal party? Included in the rental fee for the amphitheater is use of Hebron House for 30 minutes before and after the ceremony. If the bridal party would like to dress on the property, they may rent the House for an additional fee.
Q: Is there electricity available in the amphitheater? Yes, there is an electric outlet near the altar, and another near the top part of the amphitheater.
Q: Are there microphones available? No, we do not provide microphones, but it is highly recommended that one is used.
Q: May we further decorate the amphitheater? Renters may bring in plants, flowers, etc. to decorate the amphitheater if they'd like, but all must be removed after the ceremony. Synthetic flower petals, typically strewn about by a flower girl, are not permitted; real flower petals are fine. The use of a bridal "runner" is permitted, but please remember it is quite a distance and there are several sets of steps to consider.
Q: Any further notes for the bridal couple? The aisle of the amphitheater is a paved walkway which can snag very long veils. The bridal gowns are fine because of their weight, but we recommend that brides wear veils which do not touch the ground.
