So Beautiful and So Accommodating!

I loved having my wedding venue at 1840s plaza! We had an outdoor ceremony on the upper courtyard (which they were able to accommodate for a few extra people for us last minute), and then used lower ... Read more courtyard for cocktails and the 4th floor ballroom for reception and it was all so perfect. I was concerned about the flow of the venue but it was 100% perfect, with the staff on hand to help there were no issues at all! I got lots of compliments on the venue and we rented the inn for family and bridal party the night of the wedding and it was AMAZING that many people got to check-in early, I didn't feel like my requests were annoying at all and I can't even describe how awesome Lauren and the gentleman at the desk (forgot his name I'm so sorry!) were throughout the day of shenanigans. The original person we worked with moved on to another company only a few months after booking and at first I was really upset but Lauren was so easy to talk to, was professional and able to accommodate all our needs with a smile! Everyone at 1840s truly wants you to have an amazing experience, and I can't recommend enough that if you can include a night over in one of the rooms, they will be sure to recommend the best one for your needs (but they are all amazing honestly). Everyone who stayed over said the rooms are amazing and I would totally go back just to stay at the Inn! So happy with my choice and I would definitely recommend 1840s plaza as a great venue and also the Carrolton Inn as a great place to stay and really make you feel royal but also relaxed!

Beautiful venue in a convenient location in Downtown Baltimore. Great for out-of-town guests!

Although we reside in DC/MD/VA area, majority of our guests were from out of town, and we wanted to ensure convenience for them. Located in the Inner Harbor, the venue is close by the BWI airport, and ... Read more right next to the venue is a hotel within a short walking distance. We had a room block with the hotel, and because of the proximity to the venue, our out-of-town guests did not need to rent a car and explored Downtown Baltimore. For guests driving to the venue, complimentary valet parking is provided the day of which was a big plus. The 1840s staff are extremely professional, friendly and accommodating, especially Stasia, who served as our main POC. She made us feel like family. It’s a great venue for photos, especially the backdrop of the Fava building. The Carrollton Inn is a very lovely getting ready spot day of and place to stay on the wedding night. The Carrollton Inn breakfast is sooo good - we had to throw this in as well! Thank you 1840s for the great experience and memorable wedding day! And a special THANK YOU to Stasia!
