Ever since I visited 1840s Plaza, I knew it was my dream venue. I was so very lucky to have my dream come true this year, as I held my May wedding in the courtyard with the reception in the City Lites area. The team at 1840s is friendly and professional, and you can't beat the many options they offer based on the style of your event. Photos can't even do justice to the gorgeous space!

My daughter had her reception here last week and I highly recommend this venu. Stasha was so professional and went out of her way to be a great wedding coordinator, she knows her venue and is always willing to help in any way. The room was beautiful and the grounds were keep real nicely. We had the best time and all things went off without a hitch! We had the ceremony on the upper courtyard and the cocktail hour on the lower courtyard and the venue on the 4th floor ballroom! All of our guest had a wonderful time. Highly recommend!

1840's was an amazing place to have our wedding! The staff is so friendly and really willing to work with you. The venue itself has such character and is so beautiful. The staff goes above in beyond on your wedding day. Stasia was our event coordinator there and she was amazing! My bridesmaids were having trouble bustling my dress and she stepped in and helped. So grateful! She also got us food during the cocktail hour to make sure we got chance to eat. The staff there is very detailed oriented and made sure things run smoothly throughout the night. Would recommend 1840's to all my friends who are getting married!

I absolutely loved this venue and Stasia and Dianna were AMAZING to work with! Stasia and Dianna were with us through the entire process! From the first day we went to see the venue, to figuring out our date and pricing, to allowing us to visit the venue several times in between, running our rehearsal and the wedding day as well, they were always available! My sister in law is a day of planner, and she told me that there are a lot of venues that say they will have people there helping the day of the wedding, but most actually don't... that was not the case with 1840s. Dianna was there to help with all the behind the scene details the day of, and both of them were always available to answer all of my questions... and there were lots :) We rented the entire venue to have a 'rain plan' for our Ceremony, but the weather was amazing and we didn't have to use it. We got married in the large Courtyard, had Cocktail hour in the first floor Cabaret, and had the Reception in the fourth floor Ballroom. There are so many cool spaces at this venue and it gives you a lot of ability to be creative and decorate it however you would like! Also... it's hard to come across a Ballroom with WINDOWS! The natural light for a summer wedding was amazing!

I also stayed at the Carrollton Inn the night before my wedding, got ready there the day of the wedding, and stayed there on my wedding night. The space was elegant/regal and there was plenty of room for lots of girls to be moving around and getting ready all at once. The Inn isn't cheap, but it was very convenient to be able to get ready just steps away from the Ceremony and Reception! My wedding day was everything I could hope for and more and all of the staff at the venue were very helpful and accommodating!

From Stashia down to Diane and the girl ( I am sorry I didn't get your name) it was fantastic....My tenting company dropped the ball on some things and they sprung into action and took care of everything. I have dealt with Stashia on many occasions professionally as well. She is wonderful and my daughters wedding was gorgeous and spectacular

We had an amazing experience at this venue. They were able to accommodate us in many different ways with their flexibility. The courtyard was beautiful. My husband and I had booked a room for our wedding night and they ending up upgrading us (breakfast was great too!). Stacia was a gem- so great to work with. It is an amazing place for pictures, and very seamless. I would definitely have my wedding here if I were to do it all over again!

The moment I visited this venue I fell in love with it! Our wedding ceremony was held in the gorgeous lower courtyard of 1840s and the reception was held in the Ballroom on the 4th floor. The venue and staff are amazing! Stasia is the best coordinator, she was professional and on top of her game! I received so many complaints about the 1840s Plaza from many guests who stated it was a beautiful venue. We were so happy with everything, THANK YOU so much for making our wedding great :)
