Highly recommended. Very accommodating. Definitely will be back. We loved everything. Kelsey was beyond helpful and just a real pleasure to work with. She really made our Wedding day special. We could not have asked for more. We will share some photos when we get them back.

Our wedding at 1840’s Plaza was absolutely perfect! We had the ceremony on the fourth floor and the reception on the second floor. The staff was extremely accommodating to all our requests! They worked well with all of our other vendors to make sure our wedding went smoothly. My bridesmaids and I got dressed in the Carrollton Inn and my husband and I stayed there the wedding night. The room (the Carroll Suite) was ready by 1:00pm as promised and was great for pictures. Having both a bedroom and sitting room was great for avoiding clutter in photos as well as making sure my four bridesmaids, mother, mother-in-law, and I didn’t feel too crowded. The morning after the wedding, we were served a delicious breakfast in our room. My husband’s stomach was bothering him and they were kind enough to bring up seltzer and toast free of charge. Overall, I was extremely impressed. Every guest I talked to said how much they enjoyed the uniqueness of the venue. That was one of the reasons I chose it. It’s not your typical blank canvas wedding venue. It has a lot of personality while also giving the bride freedom to add personal details.
