Located in Baltimore, Maryland, 1840s Plaza is a historic wedding venue with 13 gorgeous rooms and suites at the 1840s Carrollton Inn, a boutique hotel right outside of Little Italy & Restaurant Row in Harbor East. The property offers a tranquil courtyard garden with bistro lights, perfect for an outdoor ceremony, while still having three indoor levels for both ceremonies and receptions.

Facilities and Capacity

Once you encounter the stately front gate of the charming venue, it opens to reveal a garden courtyard that leads to the boutique hotel, the 1840s Carrollton Inn. You’ll see three stories of architectural excellence fronted by a historical red-iron facade that rises before guests majestically. From first glance, the 1840s Plaza serves as the ideal setting for your picture-perfect wedding. As you and your guests are swept away into the grace and beauty of an era past, life and excitement will glow through the many sparkling windows. The three floors of the picturesque Fava Building are all available for your special day. From the Latin-inspired first-floor called Cabaret to the second floor. City Lites, the unique decor will create a charming atmosphere for the joyous occasion. The second floor also features authentic Baltimore vignettes, historical White Tower diner, and a lounge-like style. In addition to those two spaces, the 1840s Plaza boasts an elegant 1840s Ballroom with sweeping city views, hardwood dancefloor, crystal chandeliers, and hand-painted murals of historic Baltimore. The Ballroom is one of the most sophisticated and unique in the Inner Harbor area. No matter the vision or budget, there is a fitting venue for your day.

    A Harlem Night in Baltimore City

    Words can't express how I feel about the1840s Inn, the lavish ballrooms, staff, and services they provide. My husband and I chose the venue based on our wedding theme and it was perfect 🥰 💞 . The staff delivered elite service and accommodations. They were super helpful and supportive throughout the entire process. They had an amazing vendor list for us to choose from which in turn made it a one stop shop. The planning became effortless with their support. It was a pleasure speaking with the staff every single time I had to call or meet at the venue. Hosting our event during a national pandemic was not easy but with the 1840s assistance, I got my fairytale. I'll forever be grateful to the staff at 1840s, thank you 😊!

    1840s Plaza's reply:

    Thank you, Rhonda! Your wedding at 1840s was absolutely stunning, from your specialty gown to the décor! It was wonderful to watch everything come together so beautifully. We hope we can welcome you back soon for a couples getaway!

    Excellent Service!

    I was a COVID bride and had to find a whole new venue for my Baltimore wedding and the team at 1840's Plaza made it so easy. Throughout the whole process from selecting a venue, providing a tour with updated safety measures and working with my vendors they were amazing. The day of the wedding it was raining and 1840's plaza worked with my wedding planning team to ensure I had nothing to worry about! I'm truly thakful for their help!

    1840s Plaza's reply:

    Thank you, Francesca! Your wedding was truly magical. We are so glad 1840s was able to give you and Raphael the wedding of your dreams! Our staff works hard to make sure you never have to worry!

    1840’s Plaza

    We had an amazing experience working with 1840s Plaza for our wedding! Stasia, Rachel, and the whole team helped to make everything go smoothly and even better than we imagined! The team was very flexible and supportive when we needed to make adjustments for a smaller ceremony due to covid restrictions, followed by a larger reception when restrictions lifted. Both events (the smaller ceremony held in the courtyard and the larger reception held indoor at City Lites indoor) were beautiful and went smoothly. The team even surprised us with an upgraded room for our stay after our reception. We are so grateful for everything the 1840s team did to help us make so many memories!

    1840s Plaza's reply:

    Teresa, we are overjoyed that 1840s provided you with the best wedding day possible! Thank you for allowing us to host you! We hope you return sometime soon for a weekend getaway!
