"I would recommend The Rapids Theatre to anyone looking for a venue for their big day! Our wedding was beyond perfect and we have nothing but great things to say about Marie and her team. They were quick to respond, organized, professional, and most of all they actually cared about making your wedding day the best it could be!"

"The Rapids Theatre was nothing less than we had dreamed of for our big day! Our wedding coordinator was absolutely amazing and helped us every step of the way with any questions we had. We love her!! The theatre was absolutely breathtaking as I made my way down the aisle towards my now husband to say “I do”. Seeing all the beautiful lights glisten off of our centerpieces was absolutely beautiful. It’s amazing that there can be a sold out concert the day before and the theatre is in tip top shape the next day for one of the biggest days of your life! If you are looking for a beautiful, classic venue for your big day, we absolutely recommend The Rapids Theatre!"

Marie and her staff made sure everything was taken care of for our day and planning was such a breeze. I would recommend Rapids to anyone looking to have a unique wedding experience. You will not be disappointed!"

"Just working with the event coordinator, makes you want to book this place. It’s really not too much to look at from the outside but the inside is incredible. They’re VERY accommodating and will work with you to make your weeding whatever you want it to be. I, myself, didn’t even want to go look at the place but I was sold and didn’t have to look at any other options. This is a place that you have to at least consider!! Five-star deserving!"

"I really don’t even know where to start with this place, it was so amazing!! First of all the venue looks amazing!! I fell in love with it once I saw it!! It has a magnificent ceiling piece, a nice theater feel with amazing lighting options. Some of my review things may apply to both Rapids and the catering service they have there through the caterer because they worked seamlessly on a lot of things together to make our wedding day perfect. At Rapids, you have someone there working with you to make your day the most perfect, and I had the amazing pleasure of working with the event coordinator. I have to admit, the venue looked amazing. The event coordinator was so accommodating, lovely and dedicated….she is exactly what you would want a person to be who is going to be helping you through this process. Now when I say she goes above and beyond is an understatement. I mean she gives out her cell phone number so you can reach her whenever!! Besides the event coordinator’s amazingness, the venue also makes a lot of the reception details go by so smoothly. I dropped off everything at the Theatre at our final meeting a couple days before the wedding. I simply explained how I wanted all the decorations and other things set up, and they take care of the rest. Believe me when I say that they set up everything exactly how I wanted, and some even better than I expected!! The venue also has a livestreaming camera that shows your cake cutting, dances, and just everyone dancing on screens through the night. The venue was just perfect and I am still getting compliments about it, and imagine I will be for a long time to come. I highly recommend this venue to anyone that asks. The reception was so fantastic, and we have Rapids Theatre to thank for a big part of that!!"

"My husband and I got married at Rapids Theatre on 7-7-17. I cannot say enough about how incredible the venue was! Our guest were absolutely blown away and have not stopped talking about it how impressed they were! The venue looks vastly different than it does for concerts…much, much shiner and cleaner! And the lighting! Even the pictures don’t do it justice. Absolutely breathtaking! The staff was so attentive, especially to the bridal party. They made sure that we were on schedule and always had everything that we needed to make the night run smoothly. The event coordinator was SO helpful in the planning stage. She was always available for questions and gave us great advice. I am SO thankful that we decided to have our wedding at Rapids. Truly the best day of our lives!"

"Hands down best decision my husband and I made having our wedding at The Rapids Theatre! Marie was so helpful and always available if we had any questions. The place is absolutely gorgeous and such a unique venue. I had guests telling us it was the best wedding they’ve been to! Our day was perfect and the staff made us feel like VIP clients from the very beginning! We had a live band and the sound and lighting was amazing! I highly recommend this venue as it is unlike any other and you will feel so comfortable and in great hands with Marie and her staff. Thank you Rapids!"

"Our wedding reception at The Rapids Theatre was phenomenal! We chose the Rapids Theatre because of the great people working here and because of the beauty of the venue. Marie and her team were so helpful, communicative and caring during the planning process (we are from out of state) and worked hard to ensure everything ran smoothly on the big day! They are ultimate professionals at what they do! The venue itself is so gorgeous and stands on its own - - any decorations you add for your wedding are just the icing on the cake. I loved that the venue was very open and had easy access for all my guests to the bar and dance floor. Having a state of the art sound system available for our DJ and professional lighting on the dance floor were added bonuses and made the night even more fun! Our guests had an amazing time, and so did we! Recommend this venue 100% to future brides and groom, and a big thank you to The Rapids Theatre for making this such a wonderful night for us and our guests!"

"I am not even sure where to begin. Rapids Theatre was the most perfect venue for my wedding day on April 8th. The event coordinator was amazing to work with, and I am going to miss working with her now that my wedding day is over. She responded to my questions in a timely manner and made sure that we had everything that we needed. The venue itself is BEAUTIFUL. My guests could not get over how amazing everything was and many were asking me where I found this beautiful venue. Rapids and the wedding coordinator are very accommodating and work with you to make sure that you have everything that you want to make your special day AMAZING. I highly recommend Rapids Theatre; it is so unique and beautiful. The lighting, sound system and staff are phenomenal along with many other reviews on here about the ceiling – it is breathtaking! Who else can say that they got married on a stage?! My husband and I have no complaints whatsoever – we had an amazing time and we cannot thank Rapids Theatre and our wedding coordinator (along with amazing food by Rich’s) for making our special day so perfect. If you are getting married in the future, please take some time to see Rapids Theatre – it is perfect for your special day!"

"My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Rapids Theatre for our wedding day, on 8/4/18. From the moment I walked into Rapids Theatre, I knew this was going to be like no wedding I or any of our guests have ever been to. The wedding coordinator was helpful, professional, and an absolute pleasure to work with. Our catering and planning was done through Rich’s Catering, where the wedding coordinator and Maureen work closely together, making sure that your day is perfect. When Rapids isn’t hosting weddings, they are hosting concerts, which gave us the perfect opportunity to have live music. Our friends and family are all still raving about how it was the best wedding they have ever been to, and how amazing and kind all of the staff was. If you want something that is different than your typical wedding, something that your friends and family are not going to stop talking about, I give my full recommendation to our wedding coordinator and Rapids Theatre. Thank you so much for all of your hard work and commitment to your customers, I could not have imagined a more perfect day."
