    Wedding bells were ringing

    Venue 1902 at Preservation Hall was the perfect location for our daughter's wedding. Spacious and elegant is how our guests described this historic Venue. The staff was warm, friendly and very helpful. Bells ringing after the pronouncement of the marriage and the sparkler exit was such a special and unexpected surprise for our guest. We loved every moment of our daughter's special day.

    Love at 1st Sight

    We fell in love with the venue after our 1st walkthrough. The entire Venue 1902 team was great from beginning to end. They are responsive and really work hard to provide all the details and information you need before you ask any questions. They are affordable and I love that the venue offers so much space inside, outdoors, upstairs, and downstairs to accommodate everyone's needs.

    I love that the venue hosts open houses so you can go back as many times as you need before your wedding to visualize your day and all of the details in your wedding space.

    They are organized and patient. They provided so many details like measurements, table sizes, inventory of what they offer etc.. so I could have all the details handy while communicating with other vendors.

    Everything was beautiful. Can't believe I got married in such a beautiful, historic location. We received so many compliments about the unique qualities of the venue.
    Thank you to Venue 1902 from The Fountains!

  • River City Catering Wedding Caterers

    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!

  • JMT Events
    JMT 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.
