The whole team at the Capitol Plaza was fantastic! Our ceremony and reception could not have gone any smoother. If there were any hiccups we were unaware of them until the next day. There were no additional fees or venue costs. It was strictly based off the per person amount depending on menu choice. Brian Cain who has partial ownership in the Plaza also planned our wedding. After we left our first meeting with Brian we could not stop smiling. We knew we would have nothing to worry about and it was going to be the best experience. It truly was the best day thanks to Brian and the rest of the team at Capitol Plaza!Sent on 11/09/2015

Everyone at Capitol Plaza was amazing! Brian made our day absolutely seamless and stress free. Every detail was taken care of for us. Robin and Anne were amazing, and made sure we had everything we needed and more. Our guests stayed at the hotel and were incredibly happy with the service.Sent on 12/19/2016

The capital plaza was the most amazing wedding venue. We felt catered to and all our expectations were exceeded. The only thing I would recommend is have a different cake maker. The whole night went smooth and the event was flawless!! I recommend having your reception here Brian is the best!! It was so easy and I loved the time line to help keep me on task and to help me plan the wedding of my dreams!!! We did the around the world package and the food and presentation was beyond amazing. The hotel room was a huge plus and really helped us to get ready for the big day by allowing us to bring our things in before the wedding. By having the option of a complimentary hotel room I was able to get ready with no worries about anything! Definitely a must for any bride to check out!!!Sent on 12/07/2016
