    Picture perfect, amazing, fantastic - not enough words to describe!!

    From start to finish your staff went above and beyond what we could have hoped for. My daughters wedding day was picture perfect to say the least. Emily and Katie and their staff were not only professional, they had everyone at ease and made the day stress-free for all of us. They were so friendly and helpful, always smiling and calm. If there were any glitches we had no idea. The venue is so beautiful and spacious, but the real beauty in this amazing place are the people that are there to make your day amazing and memorable. There was no need to hire a wedding planner, we were treated to a wonderful team which was part of our whole package. Thank you for sharing your staff and venue with the Rohan and Wild families. Only wish we could give you 50 Stars!!!!!!

  • 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 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.
