The 1840's Ballroom was absolutely WONDERFUL! Sacia and Jose were GREAT! Jose worked with us the evening of the event and helped to make everything move seamlessly and smoothly. He was a positive and consistent presence in the background, working tirelessly to provide a wonderful experience for the parents of the bride! I was worried that our party would be too big for the venue, but it turned out that everyone fit and had room to move around and be comfortable. The views were wonderful outside the windows on three sides. Absolutely a magical, beautiful evening at a great venue.

We thought the entire 1840's staff was wonderful. Because of Stasia and Dianna, our wedding was perfect. They were extremely helpful, nice, and willing to do whatever we needed. Even our guests commented on how wonderful Stasia was on the day of the wedding (Dianna covered our rehearsal).

This wedding venue was a no brainer for us. I have loved the building and courtyard from afar for years. We met with Dianna to view all of the spaces about 14 months before our wedding. We loved the B&B (the Carrolton Inn), the huge brick courtyard, and the gorgeous facade of the actual building. Once we visited all of the floors of the building, we knew the 2nd floor, City Lites was perfect for us. With gorgeous murals on the walls, fun nooks and crannies, and the White Tower Diner in the middle of the room, we knew that it would be ideal for our casual, fun and quirky wedding. A few weeks before the wedding, we received a call about the 3rd floor (the backup to the courtyard as our ceremony location). We were in the nearby vicinity, and Dianna had no problem with us just stopping by to discuss the plans. They were making changes to the 3rd floor's decor and were completely up front and wanted us to be aware of these changes. Dianna presented us with wonderful options if we weren't happy with how the room would look for the day of our wedding. We ended up having gorgeous weather and used the courtyard as hoped, but it was incredibly appreciated that Dianna called us to explain the situation and give us options. When we had our meeting a week before the wedding, with our caterer and other vendors, Dianna helped us through all the steps of how the day of would work, in terms of timing, and when we could bring all of our decorations in. She even allowed me to stop by later alone to show my photographer around. We greatly enjoyed everyone involved from 1840s, but Dianna was the one there for us every step of the way. The site was gorgeous, and the staff incredibly helpful.

The 1840's Ballroom, provided us with a beautiful venue to hold our wedding. We used the 2nd floor (The City Lites room), to hold our ceremony and reception, and the 1st floor (1840's Cabaret room), to hold our cocktail hour. The staff that we worked with (Stasia, Diana, Amy, and Pamela), as well as others, were extremely flexible and understanding during the whole process. We noticed one little maintenance issue with one of the rooms, and the staff at 1840s accommodated us immediately. They ensured that our event ran smoothly and efficiently. The rooms inside this building are beautiful and are well taken care of. This venue is worth every dime and is certainly gorgeous in pictures. They even provide a way for guests to rent the street for the night so that everyone can park in front of the venue. We had a wonderful time.

We had both our ceremony and reception on the City Lites floor, and it was wonderful. Our guests had a lovely time, and Dianna was a pleasure to work with!

Loved, loved, loved having our reception at the 1840s plaza! We had our cocktail hour in the 3rd floor Carroll Salon, and our dinner in the fun City Lites room. It was the perfect fun room to party in after having a traditional Catholic wedding ceremony! Dianna and Stasia were fantastic to work with, helpful from day one up until the night of the wedding. We had a slight parking crisis when the city parking authority failed to bag the meters on S. Front street in time (which we had already paid for months in advance to reserve parking for some guests/vendors), and the 1840s plaza took care of it, even sending someone out to tell non-wedding guests to move their cars. All around a terrific venue.

The Ballroom is spectacular and we'd recommend it and the staff, for any event. That it's a gorgeous space is a given but it goes far beyond that. The staff bent over backwards to help us get everything done and the end result was a beautiful affair that fell right in our budget and was enjoyed by all. We had our jewish ceremony on the 3rd floor and the cocktail hour/reception on the 4th floor. Plenty of beautiful spots for pictures, even outside in early November.

We had our ceremony and reception in "City Lites" or floor 2 of the Fava building. Amazing. We went with a Baltimore theme to capture the beauty of the room and not only was it amazing to see, but our guests said it was the coolest room they had ever seen. Stasia and Dianna are amazing and the staff at the Inn are truly awesome as well. I loved our venue and hope to return one day to celebrate some other special event :)

I got married in the Courtyard at the Carrollton Inn and then our reception was in the City Lites ballroom. We also stayed our wedding night in the Carrollton Inn. It was BEAUTIFUL. All of it. We were able to watch people arriving at the wedding from the suite, and our ceremony was so gorgeous, the site was so pretty. And our reception was so much fun! AHH. I know it's probably not for everyone but it's so cute and Baltimore-esque. We had 110 guests and it was perfect for the space, I think too much more would have been cramped FYI! Juan worked with my wedding planner and made everything go so smooth (plus saved me with a secret trip to the powder room hahaha). Many thanks!

The door of the 3rd and 4th floors are beautiful. I had my ceremony on the 3rd floor and the reception in the 4th floor (ballroom). The third floor is very scenic with beautiful backgrounds for the photography and the chandeliers on the 4th floor are stunning. The event coordinator, Juan, is awesome (the staff, in general is great) but this guy goes above and beyond. He anticipated my needs on my wedding day, which I greatly appreciate and will never forget. I've attended other events at this venue and was impressed even then. I am so thankful that my wedding was here. We are a unique wedding couple, in that we won the "wedding in a week" contest..so thank you 1840's Ballroom for making my wedding perfect.
