No Stress, Beautiful Wedding Day

Venue 1902 is the perfect wedding venue for a beautiful, stress-free day! From the first tour and meeting with Aleshia, everyone we met with or spoke to from the venue was so kind, patient, and they truly cared about making our big day special.

Our day-of coordinators (Adriana, Ady, and Haley) were incredibly kind and so well-organized. We supplied our own decor and had vendors dropping off floral/favors/cake- everything from load-in and set-up of the decor to teardown and load-out went seamlessly. If any issues arose, they were solved and I didn’t know and had no stress on my wedding day.

In addition to the incredible people working to ensure your wedding is perfect, the venue itself is beautiful. The bridal suite is perfect for getting-ready photos, the courtyard is wonderful for first looks and family portraits, and the whole space is bright and airy. We highly recommend getting married at Venue 1902!

Beautiful venue!!! Loved it!!

My husband and I got engaged in May 2023 and when it came to searching for a venue, there were so many things to consider; venue size, location, charm, accommodations, and most importantly, price!

We checked out multiple venues and this one checked all the boxes! When I walked in the first time, I fell in love with the charm the place had and loved how unique it was! For starters, the venue was stunning and it spoke for itself! The get ready spaces were the biggest I’d seen of all the venues we visited; super spacious and could easily fit 8+ people in there without feeling crammed! I also loved that the venue offered a day-of coordinator to help ensure everything goes smoothly on wedding day. They hosted multiple “open house” events, which allowed people to come in and speak with different vendors they typically work with, such as catering, DJ, flowers, etc. This was such an awesome idea because otherwise I would have no clue where to start for finding out vendors! It also allowed us to see the venue with different styles of decor and it gave us ideas for what we would want for our wedding day too! Speaking of which, the venue had a plethora of decor to choose from which could be rented which was really nice! When it came to planning, the venue offered a portal which was the primary form of communication with the staff members, they were quick to respond and super helpful!

In May 2024, my husband and I got married here and we couldn’t have been happier with our choice!! On the day of and the days after, we had so many of our friends and family coming up to us, sharing how much they loved the venue!

We would certainly recommend this venue to anyone who’s looking to get married! I hope to visit again one day for a loved one’s wedding, because I truly could not get enough of this beautiful building!❤️

BIG THANK YOU to the staff members of Historic venue of 1902, who made our special day so beautiful and memorable!!

Venue 1902 is one of the most unique venues out there. The owners have done an AMAZING job with renovating the building from inside out but they were still able to keep the history of Downtown Sanford within it which makes it even more amazing. With the way they designed the reception hall upstairs, it is a blank canvas for any bride to make her wedding the way she wants to make it!

The Chic Place Events The Chic Place Events Wedding Planners

I need to say this venue is amazing. It has all the amenities a Bride can ask for. One look and for the first time and I am choosing this venue for my wedding as well. The owner is very professional and out going, she makes everything possible to please her Brides.
