After searching and searching for an affordable indoor wedding venue, we happened upon Historic 1625. They were everything we were looking for and very affordable! The venue is absolutely beautiful with plenty of space for your wedding or party. Staff is friendly, responsive and professional. No hidden fees or agendas. Our wedding turned out absolutely perfect. Thank you Historic 1625 for helping to make our wedding day the event I had always dreamed about.

We recently celebrated our daughter’s wedding at Historic 1625 in Tacoma, Washington and wanted to thank the staff and management of 1625 for contributing to what was a spectacular day. From the time we first contacted 1625 about holding our reception there until the time we walked out the door at the end of the reception, they were professional, responsive, and helpful with the myriad of details involved in having a wedding reception.
We would highly recommend 1625 as a venue for any event. Thanks again to everyone at Historic 1625 for their part in making our daughter and daughter-in-law’s day something that they will never forget!

My husband and I could not have asked for a better place to celebrate our wedding. We were looking for a venue that would be convenient for all of our guests to get to and something that would not take all of our wedding budget. Historic 1625 Tacoma Place was all of that and so much more! Kristen and her employees were so easy to work with and answered any questions I had very quickly. I wanted to visit the venue a few times after booking it to show my family and plan for layout and decorations, and they were more than happy to set that up in a very timely manner. They set-up and took down all of the chairs and tables and made clean up so easy and painless. Their on-site coordinator stays the entire time and helps to direct the entire night, so you can be at ease. The beauty of the building itself was decoration enough, so we needed very few additions. We had many guests comment to us on how much they enjoyed the venue. I would highly recommend Historic to any future bride and groom.

Not only did i love the venue but the staff. they have a great professional staff who was amazing to work with and did everything to make sure we had the best wedding day possible.

The staff member that was onsite during our wedding was extremely nice and very helpful. She kept everything moving and offered her services any way that she could help. The atmosphere was amazing, I love this venue. I do give it five out of five, however, I wish that prior to us signing a contract with this venue we were told that full service catering was required to be able to hold a wedding at 1625. When it comes to communication other then that with the owner to organize and arrange table set up and getting back to me promptly was impeccable. I would recommend this venue to a friend however I would tell them about the full service catering cost.

This venue is beautiful! I didn't have to put too much work into decorating because the venue is gorgeous all on it's own. (Although I have seen pictures where others have done more decorating and it seems to work well either way). I was concerned due to the area being a little industrial and wondering where we would take our outside pictures. I shouldn't have been the brick on the outside of the building made a wonderful backdrop and we also walked less than a block to the train tracks and took some great pictures there. All of my emails were answered promptly and I was able to view the venue a couple times during the planning process before the wedding. If I ever have the need to rent a venue again this would be my first choice. Several of my guests commented on how beautiful the venue was and I couldn't have been happier with our choice!

We had our daughter's wedding reception at Historic 1625 and found it to be a great venue. It really is a gorgeous facility, love the open beamed ceiling, brick walls and tile floors. At first you might think the location is a bit strange but in reality it is a perfect location because of the accessibility.....with lots of free parking! It is really nice to be able to hire a caterer rather than the local hotels and other venues where you don't have a choice.The venue staff is very efficient and helpful.

The staff was very quick on there responses and were pretty flexible throughout the whole process. The only thing I would recommend for future couples is to buy additional hours for set up time we bought the more expensive package that included 9hrs of rental time and it was still pretty close on timing!

Taylor took care of our day of needs and as the bride-- I didn't hear about any issues- which is exactly what I wanted. Everything went smoothly and I am so happy with the venue and the staff that helped make our day perfect.

The entire day was a dream come true for two reasons, an amazing venue and coordinator. Taylor, the event coordinator is so helpful and makes you feel so at ease, very important for the bride. She helped everything move smoothly, ensured all of the set up was how I had envisioned it to be. She was amazing at being everywhere you needed her, but at the same time staying in the shadows observing. All of my guests raved about her kindness.

The venue itself is great, the rooms allow for guests to go back and forth when they needed to sit down, but also had enough room for people to dance and others to watch and enjoy the festivities. We didn't need a lot of decoration to enhance the venue. We only had the tables decorated in the reception area and the pictures just came to life.

If I were to throw another event I would start here!

We held our August 2013 wedding here at Historic.. the building is absolutely stunning and is incredibly spacious! We had the ceremony in one room with the entire reception in the other for around 110 people. There are so many different layouts you could play with for your wedding day because of how big the two rooms are. We got SO many compliments on this location!
I was impressed with how responsive Kristen was.. my phone calls and emails never went unanswered. She was thorough and organized throughout our entire planning process, and answered any question we had. We did feel like the flexibility had dwindled after officially booking the space, they were willing to set up tours and meetings at any time, weekend or weekday.. but once we put the deposit down, we were unable to set up a time to see the space again unless it was during their office hours, Monday through Friday.. This didn't end up being a big deal, but worth mentioning.
A huge thank you and passing compliments to Kristen's staff... Taylor was our day of wedding coordinator for the venue, and she was amazing! She was also present during our rehearsal dinner. She was so helpful and accomodating. Extremely professional!
Overall, we would definitely recommend Historic to any bride & groom as a choice for their wedding venue!

Looking for the perfect wedding venue can be such a long, tedious, stressful process. Our wedding was in the spring-time so we knew we needed an indoor venue that could accommodate at least 200 people. We also wanted a venue where we could have our ceremony and reception in one spot. Historic 1625 Tacoma Place provided everything we could have dreamed of! The venue is absolutely gorgeous on it's own... the slate floors, the exposed wood beams, the natural light from all the windows, the quaint brick walls. We still get compliments 7 months later on how beautiful the venue was! From start to finish, Kristen Wynne (Owner & Event Coordinator), made the process stress-free and seamless. Communication and responses were quick and informative. We had a day-of-coordinator there to assist through all the stress and unexpected questions and circumstances. There are beautiful and spacious rooms for both the bridal parties to get ready and keep their valuables. Even better.... they provide tables and chairs themselves so you don't have to go through the hassle of a rental company! Also, having onsite, free, accessible parking for all your guests is invaluable.

We couldn't have asked for a better wedding day...1625 Tacoma Place was the perfect venue to celebrate with all our family and friends and get some amazing pictures too!! I would highly recommend it to any bride & groom out there searching for a wedding venue in the Tacoma area. You'll definitely enjoy having your special day there and working with Kristen throughout the planning process.

Congratulations!

I wanted some place different for my wedding, a place no one had been before and was nontraditional yet still beautiful. When I walked into the venue for a tour I knew instantly that this was the place. It took my breath away. The brick walls and giant ceilings with beams are amazing. There are two rooms right next to each other which make it easy to have the ceremony and the reception at the same location. Kristen was professional, always punctual and prepared. She had lots resources for us in the area. The venue is beautiful in itself and does not need much decorating, however it was difficult to have to transport everything in that we did need (for example the archway). We could not set up ahead of time and this added extra stress on the wedding day. We had to pay extra to have the venue the night before for the rehearsal. We only had the room for an hour and this just was not enough time to run through everything necessary with our big wedding party. I was disappointed that we had to pay money for the time and I felt rushed the entire rehearsal. The staff was kind and professional but they were very strict about our time constraints. The price was very good compared to other venues in the areas such as a church or a hotel, but we still saved costs by having the wedding on a Friday night instead of a Saturday. You are required to use their caterers and you must have all alcohol served by a bartender. There are two rooms for wedding party to get ready in. Unfortunately we had to pay extra for those as well. There was also a fee for the set up and tear down of each individual chair. We even asked if we set them up ourselves to cut that cost but it wasn't allowed. At the end of the day we spent more than we had hoped because of several extras costs. However, it was an absolutely beautiful venue. Every guest loved it and it was a memorable event. I would recommend 1625 Historic Place to anyone. It is a very unique, classy and beautiful venue for any kind of event!

We had our wedding reception here and it was perfect! We loved the interior so much - the brick walls, ceiling beams and lighting created an awesome atmosphere. We didn't even feel the need to decorate too much as the entire venue was so beautiful on its own. Our guests all loved it and a few with upcoming weddings even commented about possibly having their event there.
I gave 3 stars for Flexibility because my one critique would be that we had to use the one caterer that they use. While the food was awesome and we enjoyed working with them, it would have been nice to have had a few catering options.
Both Kristen and her husband are so nice to work with - we are so appreciative of their work in making our reception so awesome!

This venue is beautiful. Everything turned out wonderfully. However I had the luck of it changing management during the time I toured it and when the reception happened. When I had originally toured it I was told that we would have all morning to set up possibly even the night before, then it was changed to at most an hour before to set up. It was frantic and stressful only having an hour to make it look the way I want but we pulled it off. That would be my only complaint and I don't see it happening to anyone in the future, just know unless you want to pay for extra time you don't get much time to set up.

We used Historic 1625 for our daughter's wedding in June. We were very pleased with how flexible Kristen was to works with. Several of the vendors met us there in the months before the wedding to confirm set up. We were able to hold both the ceremony and the reception for 210 people there. The bride and groom left the reception in a car that the brides dad restored, very cool. The venue was very helpful in arranging that with us. Everything was perfect and we received many complements on the venue. Thank you!

The building is beautiful but one of the rooms was very hot and resulted in our guests being very uncomfortable so much so that few wanted to dance and some left early. The problem was brought up to the venue rep who agreed that it wasn't normally that hot, but nothing was done to solve the issue. Eventually, some of my family propped open some doors to let air in...honestly, I am very disappointed in the venue. This is the one and only thing I would change about my wedding, if I could.

It pains me to write a less-than-stellar review for this venue, because nearly everything about it was perfect. Great location, beautiful facility, friendly and helpful on-site staff. The only downside is unfortunately a major one: our primary point of contact for the rental was absolutely horrible to deal with. Every simple question was met with rudeness, to the point where I began dreading having to make contact with this woman. Planning a wedding is a huge, stressful project, and no bride or groom should have to put up with needlessly rude, unprofessional vendors. I have unfortunately heard similar tales about this particular person from other brides, including one or two who loved the venue but decided not to sign a contract because their encounters with the events coordinator were so unpleasant.
