FAQ

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 will have an outdoor urban patio space for an additioanal ceremony option set to be finished by Fall 2021. Our indoor and outdoor space can be used how ever you would like. 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.

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.
