HOW SOON SHOULD I BOOK?
We recommend not booking more than two years in advance. After that window, we say now is the time. If the date is open now there is no guarantee it will stay open. Booking season is at its highest September - February and dates go fast then.
CAN I HAVE BOTH CEREMONY AND RECEPTION AT 1883?
Our max occupancy of The Mason Room is 160. We recommend our space primarily for receptions. We will have an outdoor urban patio space for a ceremony option set to be finished by Fall 2021. We will be knocking buildings down in the spring next to us and opening it up with a brick patio. We also can set The Mason Room up for a California style wedding for both ceremony and reception or for smaller weddings, we can set up half the room for ceremony and the other half for reception.

ARE THERE LOCATIONS FOR OUTDOOR PHOTOS?
Once our courtyard is open in the fall, yes! Also there are places within walking distance for the bride and groom we recommend that are more urban.
IS THERE A CAKE CUTTING FEE?
ARE LINENS INCLUDED?
Yes. Usually this is done by the caterers you bring in but if we need to do it, it is a $150 fee. This fee includes cutting of the cake and placing it on the dessert table for your guests to easily grab.
We include black or white round lines for our our round tables. Our six center tables are farmhouse style that can seat 60 people and do not have linens.
WHERE WILL GUESTS PARK?
We have close spaces around our building that we recommend for the bridal party and immediate family. After that we suggest additional guests park in the other public locations or shuttling over.
1. Vick’s Pizza lot directly across from the church on Lancaster Avenue
2. Parallel parking on Lancaster Avenue
3. Two public parking city lots on Main Street across from the front of our building
4. Chiropractors office after 4pm most days
5. JFK city parking (walk under the bridge and around or rent a shuttle)
6. Holiday Inn on Taylor Road has shuttling options for a fee
What is the Edison Room for?
The Edison Room is a multi-purpose room. We use it for caterers to plate the meals in. We do not have a stove, only a microwave and fridge. The room can also be used as the guys getting ready room on a wedding day. Through the week we also rent this room out for meetings and various purposes.
We have gone to great measure to assure our space is handicap accessible from our bathrooms to our hallway, ramps and more. With our space being a second story space in a building built in 1883, we are limited with options. We will have a commercial chair lift at our front door installed once construction is complete; as well as a ramp built outside sometime in 2021. We do not recommend our facility for someone who can not easily be moved into our chair lift and use a manual wheelchair in the venue.
WHAT IS THE DEPOSIT? WHEN IS IT DUE, AND IS IT REFUNDABLE?
DO I HAVE TO USE YOUR VENDORS?
Nope! We have a preferred vendors list that are only suggestions. We work with Event Source for linens, dishes, and tableware mainly but you are not required to order through them and can rent those elsewhere. Here is their info so you can see all your options.
Our non refundable retainer is 33% of the rental fee.
DO YOU OFFER A PAYMENT PLAN?
Yes. It’s 33% upfront , 33% midway and the reamaining 2-4 weeks prior.
IS THERE A DANCE FLOOR PROVIDED?
Our floor is all the same and the dance floor can be made to set up anywhere.We kept our flooring consistent so the room has flexibility and can be setup how you want. If you’d like a different dance floor you can rent one from Event Source.
