What We Love
OLD WORLD ROMANCE
Our intimate old-world venue caters to creative couples who desire to showcase their individual style in a timeless setting complimented with modern comforts.
You’ll be surrounded by this pulse of an unhurried life here. From the Mississippi River to the wildlife, this long-standing property has experienced lifetimes, nestled into this lovely landscape since it was built by Martin Spring, for his wife, Elizabeth, in 1884.
There's an intimate, down-to-earth quality here coupled with an artful, old-world elegance. Experience the magic of discovering an old place in a new way at 1884 On The Bluff.
THE OLD STONE FARMHOUSE
The old stone farmhouse was built from limestone dredged from the Mississippi River in 1883, prior to the dam build. We've restored this old home for your day-of preparation delight. Upstairs in the old stone farmhouse is the ideal space for our brides, her closest family, and the wedding party to prepare for the big day. You can cheers with your closest friends and family, stash your belongings, display your prep-day outfits,
listen to your wedding-day playlist and call-in your favorite pro-squad to
help with hair and make-up.
Downstairs in the old stone farmhouse provides plenty of room for the groom and groomsmen to prepare and dress for the big day too. The energy is amazing sharing the house. It's so fun having your closest people under the same roof.
HOUSE KITCHEN & DINING ROOM
In the old stone farmhouse you have a complete kitchen. Bring loads of snacks to keep everyone nourished and happy during your day-of preparations. Stock the fridge with water and champagne so you and your wedding party can relax knowing all the details are covered.
