The Sand Plum: Legendary Elegance in Historic Guthrie

What makes us remember those unforgettable weddings and fantastic events? It isn’t only the music, the fine cuisine and the way we are moved by people we love or admire. It’s also the view from the top and the grandeur of a place unexpectedly unique. Such is the Sand Plum Event Center of Guthrie Oklahoma, one of the oldest and richest buildings in the state.

I’m Larry Ladd, owner of The Sand Plum Event Center. Six years ago, I fell in love with the kind of character that only history can leave to a town like Guthrie. Since I grew up in a historic town, I quickly recognized the charm and grace that Guthrie offered as well as the lifestyle all Oklahomans seem to enjoy.

Before moving to Oklahoma, I owned an ad agency in Orange County, California where I was born and raised. My experience in advertising afforded me the opportunity to work in the special event planning industry, having marketed grand openings and other special events to the public. My wife, Michelle and I purchased the Sand Plum and quickly worked to revive its unequaled reputation.

Built in 1893, the Victor Building was the state’s first Four Star facility and became famous for the Sand Plum restaurant, located on the top floor. Today, the Sand Plum Grand Ballroom gives a spectacular view of Historic Downtown Guthrie. The perfectly restored original 1920’s maple wood floors, stunning floor length drapes and elegant dining room furnishings are only a few of the stunning features that have made the Sand Plum famous today.

We established the Victor Inn on the third floor with twelve luxury suites, including our enchanting honeymoon suite. Each room is tastefully decorated with beautiful antiques, charming amenities, the softest linens and the finest service. The Barrel Room on the lower level is available for private wine tastings as well as weddings and receptions of up to 250 guests.

At the Sand Plum we never schedule more than one event per day so we can concentrate on your special event and offer truly unique solutions to create the perfect occasion for your guests. Whether you’re planning a wedding or corporate event, we focus on you and coordinate the event you want, your way. We take care of all the hard work so you can relax and enjoy the moment you’ve envisioned.

In addition to the Sand Plum, we have three other event centers and four Bed and Breakfast Inns from which to choose in Historic Guthrie. We are ready to accommodate your every need and eager to give you and your guests a legendary experience.
