    This was absolutely the best experience we could have asked for. The owners were so easy to work with. You really felt like they were in this business because they love what they do! We did not have to worry about anything, the venue was perfect for our wedding. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking to get married. I can’t thank them enough for everything they did to help make our day so fun and memorable.

    We have a great working relationship with 1881 Occasions and enjoy each opportunity we get to bartend there! The venue itself is one of a kind and affordable for weddings or private events. We love the physical bar at this location and have nothing but good things to say about the owners and staff. They care about each and every person who comes through the doors, and are genuinely good people. Cheers to a new year and more events together!

    If you are looking for a great place to have a wedding that’s stress free and makes you feel like family this is the place to get married. They never once made it feel like work. They always went above and beyond for us and making us happy. We had everything we could have needed and they were always only a phone call or text away. Plus it was amazing getting to spend the night of the wedding there and not having to worry about trying to find somewhere to stay. Truly such a dream come true having our wedding here.
