WHERE YOU WILL
My wedding at Historic Venue 1902 was everything I could've wanted in a wedding venue and MORE! The charm of the old schoolhouse is well maintained while incorporating the wants and needs of a modern wedding! Aleisha and the entire team were very responsive in answering our questions via the Honeybook portal or in person at their monthly Open Houses I appreciated the preferred list of vendors as it steered me in the right direction in hiring a professional yet personable wedding vendor team. The location is ideal if you want your guests to truly be immersed in "Sanfording." I would absolutely recommend Historic Venue 1902 to anyone looking for a venue in the future!
Historic Venue 1902 is the best wedding venue in the surrounding Orlando area! The team is extremely helpful and makes sure everything goes smoothly from the time you sign with the venue until the moment you ’ re leaving after your wedding day. I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding day that I will cherish and remember forever. We had amazing vendors, all of which the Venue 1902 team recommended. I couldn’t have done it without the amazing team there! Can’t wait to share some professional pics with the venue team! Thank you so much, Venue 1902!
Love, Heather & Mark
