    Amazing! We had our August wedding here and it was perfect! The space itself is gorgeous. The tall ceilings and intricate design of the room is stunning. There are large bridal and groom suites upstairs with plenty of space to get ready and a stunning "catwalk" for the bride and groom to make their big entrance into the ballroom. The lighting team there was great and helped accomodate any request we had. Farrah, David and Claudia made our big day so very special. They were extremely responsive leading up to the event, honest and patient. It made the whole process easy and enjoyable. Our guests are still raving about the delicious food and service. We could not have asked for a better day. Thank you to everyone at Capitale!

    Our wedding was this past September at Capitale and I have to say that they exceeded all our expectations.

    Farrah, the event coordinator was constantly on top of things and very responsive to all the emails and requests we had coming up to the wedding. She also had great suggestions as to what can be added and our schedule for the wedding.

    Our Maitre'd, Pavel was also great. He helped things run smoothly the day of and was always looking out for what could be done to help or make our special day even better. Also went above and beyond in finding pizza to be delivered to us at 12:30 am!

    Overall I can not thank them and their beautiful venue enough. All our guests gushed about how beautiful the place was and also how it was the best wedding food they have ever had.

    Larry and the entire crew at Capitale helped us create a top-notch event and our dream wedding. Everything went off without a hitch. The food and service were spectacular. Both Pavel and Rebecca went above and beyond. All of our guests were raving about the evening which, of course, starts with the wonderful venue and incredible service.
