Reviews & Testimonials
"This is one of the most unique and photogenic wedding venues I've ever been to (my husband started a catering company about 10 years ago, so we've seen a lot)! I'm a sucker for historic buildings and an eclectic, antique ambiance. This venue really is a dream.
Book this venue with a highly-skilled photographer and you're guaranteed to look back on your wedding photos for decades to come, grateful you chose The 1883. Make your wedding a historic event at The 1883!! I wish it was around when my husband and I got married.. Maybe a vow renewal ceremony one day..."
"My dear friends held their ceremony and reception here. It was a very beautiful and versatile Venue and an excellent back drop for all the photos from the Bride's chambers to the cutting of the cake!. The owner and coordinator were very professional and gracious. It was a memorable event!"
Their attention to detail and the kindest staff, those are the two most important attributes this beautiful, quaint, old fashioned, GORGEOUS place displays in all their service. The owner, Nina, is so helpful and friendly, she's more like a sister than a wedding coordinator... if you are planning a wedding this is the PLACE!!... the only cons are the air condition was too cold for me, but I'm old...
We toured this beautiful place for our upcoming church Christmas party. We immediately fell in love with the charm of this picturesque venue with old world character, it was like going back in time. We are excited for the 1883 to host the Connection Church Clermont Christmas Party 2020.

Beautiful Historic Venue with so many original features. It is such a perfect spot for the wedding I attended, classy, yet warm and inviting. Definitely one of the most unique locations I've ever been to a wedding at.
This historic building has been preserved with amazing attention to detail. From the moment you pull up it’s stately and elegant charm has you mesmerized. As you walk inside it’s like taking a step back in time. The chapel room has gorgeous high ceilings and woodwork that will take your breath away. It’s massive and yet has an intimate ambiance. The other rooms are well appointed and beautifully designed with antique pieces that feel timeless. The bridal room has everything you could want for your special day. This place screams stunning style, and invites you to make memories all your own.

The photos don't do it justice. It is absolutely beautiful inside and out. It may not look like a lot from the outside and may look small. But once you enter in it opens up like a big beautiful Church. It has so much potential to be turned into different themes. the brown florist with the brown walls make it capable with any theme and color to decorate. It's absolutely breathtaking and makes you feel like home immediately. It has multiple rooms which is amazing, lots of space. I'm just really in awe with the place. I may get married there myself one day I definitely recommend this to anyone who's looking for an extravagant elegant wedding or any other party.
Ahh such a beautiful place! One of my favorite weddings to date was here. The atmosphere is warm, joy filled, and a great place for intimate weddings! Would definitely recommend. Staff is 10/10 and makes what seems like a stressful day smooth sailing and very fun!
This place is seriously breath taking! I was surprised at the condition of the venue and how well they refurbished everything to really keep and capture that vintage vibe. Hands down the most beautiful place to hold any event. Plus their prices and packages are super competitive! I will be referring everyone I know to this place.
If you looking for the best place to have your weddings, parties, dinner events, etc. This is the place to go. It has everything you need and more. I had so much fun thanks for hosting the wedding there. Lisa

This weekend I was invited to a friend's wedding.when I pulled up to the beautiful 19th century chapel I was taken aback by the feeling history behind the building. With the stained glass windows and lofty bell tower. It waa picturesque. It did not disappoint when I walked through the doors to the chapel which was all original and finely preserved. It was beautiful and screamed wedding in my head. When I walked around I was amazed at how little was changed from original floor plan to keep the historic feeling but completely functional for every necessity as wedding venue. It had to been in the original builders mind when plans were made. Along with the ambiance and the good hospitality and fun personality of the host/owner Nina. We were taken step by step with the bride and groom on a wonderful journey filled with dancing laughter tears and joy. It was an amazing night never to be forgotten by anyone in attendance. That being the venues 1st wedding I have a very optimistic view for the future of this establishment. CONGRATULATIONS to all involved....
