Dani & Ben

“I can’t recommend this venue enough! My fiancé and I always wanted a smaller wedding, and our friends let us know that Tenth Ward was hosting a pop-up wedding. From the second I contacted Amanda, to the time our wedding ended and we were walking out the door, she was on top of EVERYTHING. Amanda was super responsive to every email and phone call, she made the planning process insanely easy, and she and her team were unbelievable on the day of our wedding. The venue itself is beautiful, and I’d recommend this place over and over if I could.”

Khadijah & Johnson

“There is so much I could say, but if your thinking of getting this venue you should do it and get the wedding planner package too! Because Amanda is amazing. Due to COVID we had to push our wedding from July 11 to September 25. Amanda was very responsive when Covid first hit, in regards to what we wanted to do. She was literally the glue that held my wedding together and the reason it went so smoothly. The venue is beautiful and I loved that I had the option to use their bartenders while bringing my own liquor. Overall my event was everything and more. I’m very happy that I decided to go with this venue!”

Allyson & Graham

“Our original wedding was postponed due to COVID, but Tenth Ward saved the day!! The marketing director, Amanda, was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was so flexible, positive, and supportive and even coordinated with all of our vendors way more than we could have ever expected. Amanda responded to every email almost immediately and genuinely wanted to make sure we had a wonderful time. The venue was absolutely stunning and rustic and the cocktails were amazing (as were the bartenders)!”

Hilary & James

“We had to postpone our wedding due to COVID and we thought we would have to wait to have our wedding. Enter pop-up wedding day at Tenth Ward! We had a magical day that we will remember for the rest of our lives thanks to Amanda and the team. We could tell that everyone worked really hard to make our day unforgettable and we are so grateful. I cannot recommend this venue more.”

Mary (Mother of Bride)

“During the Pandemic, we were able to celebrate our daughters’ wedding with 50 people at Tenth Ward. It was everything she wanted… the venue was perfect and Amanda was flexible, accommodating and professional. We highly recommend this venue. Thanks Amanda and staff!”

Morgan & Alex

“Amazing venue for wedding reception and cocktail hour! The process and decision to have Tenth Ward host our Wedding reception event was beyond easy. Working with Amanda was a breeze, she was always available to answer any questions we had, no matter how small. We had multiple meetings to go over layout, timelines, and logistics, which made us feel super conformable that our day would go flawlessly, and it did. She was wonderful the day of, coordinating with our Vendors (in advance) to ensure everything was executed before the arrival of us and our guests. I can’t recommend this new, unique, space enough for any special occasion. Our guests who are from the area had no idea this space was available, and guests who were not familiar with Frederick were overly complementary of such a unique space in downtown. The historic charm, exposed brick, original floors, and modern ascetics made Tenth Ward the perfect spot. I wish we could do this day all over again!”

Veronica, Owner, White Dress Black Tie

“Amanda was hands-down one of the best venue coordinators we have worked with, and we have worked with A LOT. When I asked her questions via email, she was always prompt, and she made sure we were taken care of the day of the event from a venue’s point of view. Thank you, Amanda, for everything. White Dress Black Tie is grateful to have great venue coordinators like you! As wedding planners, White Dress Black Tie would recommend Tenth Ward to any of our clients in a heartbeat. The venue is so unique. It is not your ordinary wedding venue location, it is so much more. Guests were raving how unique and amazing the venue was. Most have never seen anything like it for a wedding with the exposed brick walls and industrial feel! Book Tenth Ward for your wedding venue, or next event, you can’t go wrong!”

Jeff & Melissa

“We had our dream wedding at Tenth Ward yesterday. The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous and their staff is amazing. Especially have to acknowledge our coordinator Amanda. From the minute we met her we realized she was amazing! She made sure we had to worry about nothing and enjoyed our day and so much more. We are very grateful to her and can’t say enough about how professional and fun she was. We also want to give a shout out to the bar staff that did an amazing job keeping our drinks full and were super attentive to any needs we had. I highly recommend using this venue for any private event you may need. I also can’t say enough about how pleased our guests were with their spirits. We had many of them tell us how much they enjoyed the drinks from the bar! 10/10”

Andrea & Jorge

“We were Tenth Ward’s first wedding! We knew nothing about Tenth Ward and found out about their space through word of mouth. We will NEVER regret the decision to get married here. The venue is absolutely beautiful, the location in downtown is gorgeous, and above all the team is incredible. Amanda was a breeze to work with. She was unbelievably responsive, friendly, and welcoming. She was genuinely happy and excited for us about our wedding. Amanda answered every question thoughtfully and quickly. She was flexible with my schedule and always happy to accommodate my many visits before the big day. We also hired our bartender theough Tenth Ward. HIGHLY recommend doing this! Our bartender was amazing! We’ll forever be thankful that we found Tenth Ward and had the honor of being their first wedding. Go see the place. Perfect spot to start forever!”
