This wedding venue was a no brainer for us. I have loved the building and courtyard from afar for years. We met with Dianna to view all of the spaces about 14 months before our wedding. We loved the B&B (the Carrolton Inn), the huge brick courtyard, and the gorgeous facade of the actual building. Once we visited all of the floors of the building, we knew the 2nd floor, City Lites was perfect for us. With gorgeous murals on the walls, fun nooks and crannies, and the White Tower Diner in the middle of the room, we knew that it would be ideal for our casual, fun and quirky wedding. A few weeks before the wedding, we received a call about the 3rd floor (the backup to the courtyard as our ceremony location). We were in the nearby vicinity, and Dianna had no problem with us just stopping by to discuss the plans. They were making changes to the 3rd floor's decor and were completely up front and wanted us to be aware of these changes. Dianna presented us with wonderful options if we weren't happy with how the room would look for the day of our wedding. We ended up having gorgeous weather and used the courtyard as hoped, but it was incredibly appreciated that Dianna called us to explain the situation and give us options. When we had our meeting a week before the wedding, with our caterer and other vendors, Dianna helped us through all the steps of how the day of would work, in terms of timing, and when we could bring all of our decorations in. She even allowed me to stop by later alone to show my photographer around. We greatly enjoyed everyone involved from 1840s, but Dianna was the one there for us every step of the way. The site was gorgeous, and the staff incredibly helpful.
