Effortless Weddings at the 1824 House


The staff at the 1824 House would like to congratulate you on your engagement, and give you a moment to slow the spinning of your head before we start hitting you with details. Wedding planning can be overwhelming, but don't worry, that's why we're here.  We can help you and your partner create a unique outdoor wedding, complete with details that mirror your personalities. 

Since it's important that you trust and respect the people you work with to create your dream wedding, lets begin with a few introductions.  We are the Mendell family. We're a family of businesses that provides venue rental, accommodations, catering, bar services, coordination and linen rental. But we're also a family of, you know, people. Our family is pretty down to earth.  We plan and host events for a living, but for fun we hang out by the river, play horseshoes, make (and eat!) good food together and enjoy a quality libation now and again.  

We're willing to bet that your family and friends like to do some or all of those things, too.  Since our families have so much in common, and since your house probably isn't big enough to host a wedding, we'd like to invite you to use ours instead! A celebratory weekend at the 1824 House is virtually stress free; our family covers the details. Your family can just show up, eat, drink, dance, swim, play, sleep and celebrate. For less about our hobbies and more about how we actually pull it off, please check out our how it works page.
