Stunning and Spectacular!
We held my daughter's wedding at Antrim 1844, and it was simply the best decision we could have made! Katie Coon and the Antrim team made the day simply spectacular! Even though we had a bit of rain and were unable to hold the ceremony in the garden, the team made sure the inside ceremony room looked amazing! Our guests raved about everything from the beauty of the venue, to the food, which was incredible. We had many out-of-town guests, who stayed at Antrim for the wedding weekend, and they loved it! Every single detail of the Antrim experience is wonderful, and they helped us create a stunning wedding that we will talk about and remember with joy for many years to come. I can't recommend Antrim 1844 highly enough for a wedding or any special event.Sent on 04/22/2019

I would highly recommend touring the venue. Pictures are beautiful but the Antrim truly has a presence that will help you make your decision! We knew it was the right fit for us since we could host the reception, after party and guests all in one spot.Sent on 07/18/2020
Jill was our coordinator and her flexibility throughout the COVID-19 craziness was commendable. We changed from an indoor reception to outdoor relatively quickly and Jill was willing to flush out the details and answer (all of) our questions. Also, consider booking the after party for your guests. You can select bar food that the kitchen has out and ready for you and your guests following the reception. Perfect after too many cocktails! They even put a fire and chairs outside to give it a cozy feel!
Kaitlynn was our contact for rooms and boy, was she a gem! The night of my rehearsal one of the rooms had a leak in and she was quick to reply and take care of the issue. Her kindness, attention to detail and calm demeanor was greatly appreciated.
Overall, one of my favorite things about the Antrim (besides its beauty, delicious food, and history) is that my husband and I can't wait to celebrate future anniversaries there! It's truly magical.

My experience with the Antrim planning our wedding I would not trade for anything. When we were shopping for venues, I definitely had that "say yes" moment with Antrim. It's like having your whole wedding day/weekend in your own little mini-town. My coordinator Jill was easy to work with and it was so nice having someone you trust setting up everything while you get ready. Everything there is breathtaking, even in the winter. Even when we were cold, employees set up fires in the fireplaces. Everyone working was just so nice. I wish I could do it all again!Sent on 03/05/2020

Antrim 1844 is one of my absolute favorite venues to work. Beautiful backdrops are everywhere and the staff is always a pleasure to work with. I have photographed weddings and been a groomsman at Antrim and the experience is top notch on either side of the camera!
Antrim 1844 Hotel is a fabulous venue which gives brides/grooms a fabulous private event space indoors or out, along with a gorgeous historic property where you guests can stay for the weekend. I love working with their staff as I deliver flowers and decor for my couples. They are easy to work with and very accommodating. I can't wait to work with more couples at this fabulous venue!
Love this venue! It's so timeless!
