So Beautiful and So Accommodating!
I loved having my wedding venue at 1840s plaza! We had an outdoor ceremony on the upper courtyard (which they were able to accommodate for a few extra people for us last minute), and then used lower courtyard for cocktails and the 4th floor ballroom for reception and it was all so perfect. I was concerned about the flow of the venue but it was 100% perfect, with the staff on hand to help there were no issues at all! I got lots of compliments on the venue and we rented the inn for family and bridal party the night of the wedding and it was AMAZING that many people got to check-in early, I didn't feel like my requests were annoying at all and I can't even describe how awesome Lauren and the gentleman at the desk (forgot his name I'm so sorry!) were throughout the day of shenanigans. The original person we worked with moved on to another company only a few months after booking and at first I was really upset but Lauren was so easy to talk to, was professional and able to accommodate all our needs with a smile! Everyone at 1840s truly wants you to have an amazing experience, and I can't recommend enough that if you can include a night over in one of the rooms, they will be sure to recommend the best one for your needs (but they are all amazing honestly). Everyone who stayed over said the rooms are amazing and I would totally go back just to stay at the Inn! So happy with my choice and I would definitely recommend 1840s plaza as a great venue and also the Carrolton Inn as a great place to stay and really make you feel royal but also relaxed!Sent on 06/05/2019

Stunning venue run by an amazing team
So glad that I found this wonderful venue! Every venue I saw after this one just didn’t compare. The outdoor courtyard was beautiful and perfect for our cocktail hour. The 4th floor ballroom was stunning and spaciously fit all 200 of our guest. The team at 1840s Plaza was so kind and flexible with us when it came to dropping off items before the ceremony. I would highly recommend this venue to any bride!!Sent on 10/26/2018
