Making Memories Since 2014

Let me start by saying I love Paula (Owner) so so much! Paula and the staff at 1890 went above and beyond to make my wedding day perfect!  If I could give this venue 10 stars I would.  The venue is absolutely beautiful and the staff are wonderful! I couldn't have pictured my wedding being anywhere else!

OMG! I love 1890 Event Space! As a Wedding Officiant I have seen so many Wedding Venues, but 1890 Event Space is one of my all time favorite outdoor venue spaces! As soon as you pull onto the property you just feel warm and cozy! There is a sense of magic in the air. I love the owner Paula, she is the best! I recommend them without hesitation.

We had such a great experience with 1890 during our special day. They were very professional throughout the entire process and helped everything run smoothly. We were able to customize our experience down to the smallest details in order to have a perfect wedding. We are so thankful to have had our wedding at such a beautiful venue. We would recommend this venue to any of our friends and family for any event or wedding in the future!

1890 was truly our dream venue. We couldn’t have asked for anything better. From having our rehearsal there the night before and staying the night to the best reception. Paula and the staff were amazing to work with and so accommodating! I would highly recommend having your wedding at 1890.

Recently had our reception here and it was nothing short of perfect. Paula and her team did a fantastic job throughout the whole planning process and event date. I cannot express how happy we were with our decision to celebrate here. The team is super attentive, responsive, and caring. We will be recommending 1890 to our friends and family!

We recently had our son’s wedding rehearsals dinner at The Fields at 1890 & it was wonderful! From the time we called to inquire, to the clean up of the event, the staff was very courteous & helpful! Grace & Paula were terrific & I would recommend 1890 to anyone!

I've been to a few weddings and events here and it's always a wonderful experience.  The staff is super attentive, and the owner is SO helpful.  Oh my the scenery; the house is absolutely gorgeous and there are stunning, picturesque views at every turn.  I love it here!

My wife and I had such an amazing experience here. Paula is such a kind person and really made our wedding perfect. Staff was great too! Would give this place more stars if I could.
~ Derek S. ~
We recently had 120 of our closest friends and family for our wedding at 1890.  It was such an awesome experience working with them!  Grace and Paula were wonderful and took care of literally everything.  Our entire wedding party was able to have our rehearsal dinner on property the night before.  The bride and bridesmaids stayed in the house the night before the wedding and loved the experience.  Thank you 1890 for giving this old but new couple a day in our lives we will always cherish!
