Wonderful to work with!
From the very beginning of my wedding planning 1840s plaza has been amazing!Sent on 07/20/2020
They were the first and only venue we looked at! Our original wedding date was 3/21/20. 1840s plaza did everything they could to try to have us still get married on that date but unfortunately that was the week everything was shut down. Afterwards they were so accommodating after we had to postpone our wedding twice due to the restrictions. We finally had the wedding of our dreams on 7/18/20. We used city lights for our small ceremony and had our reception in the ballroom! You can not go wrong with this venue, everything inside and outside is beautiful. A special thank you to Taylor and Stasia for dealing with my many phone calls throughout the corona virus mess!
