The Emerald Theatre is by far the greatest choice you can make for a wedding and reception venue!!! We didn't want the cookie-cutter banquet hall space, we wanted to make sure our guests felt like they were in a movie, and the Emerald nailed it from start to finish. Your wedding is a once in a lifetime moment that you want to share with those close to your heart, make it unforgettable with choosing the Emerald. We got married in 2018, and when I tell you people are S T I L L talking about our wedding, I mean it. Family members consistently say we set the bar and can not be beat!
AFFORDABLE, romantic, historic, DELICIOUS (catering by D'Amato's), and honestly...perfect.
I can guarantee you will not find another venue for this price. We paid nearly 1/3 of what other venues charged, and again, everyone won't stop talking about it.
Cecilia was our coordinator and go-to for every single thing. She makes sure you don't forget the details, which is very easy to do when you get excited. If we said we wanted something (twinkle lights on the stage, an absolute must), she made it happen. I am the definition of unprepared, with most things, and never once did she let me drop the ball. She was prompt, efficient, and most importantly passionate. The morning of our wedding all I had to do was show up, get ready and marry the love of my life, Cecilia took care of the rest.
The food was out of this world. We had D'Amato's INCREDIBLE meatballs for the appetizer and the Honey Peppered Angus Beef Brisket and Chicken Piccata for our main course. Tony and his team executed everything with grace and perfection. D'Amato's has worked their way into our regular date nights now because we feel they represent that warm loving feeling that loving someone can bring, both in their food and hospitality.
We got to use the stage as our altar, then during the cocktail hour, the amazing team flipped the script and turned it into our head table and opened up the seating to make it a dance floor. I loved keeping everything within one space for our guests' convenience.
We really wanted to make sure we had a good venue, good food, and a good DJ. We ended up with an AMAZING all of the above and I'm so grateful for Cecelia at the Emerald Theatre, Tony Prainito at D'Amato's, Dave Menzo, our DJ, at Mike Staff Productions, and Evis Mecolli, our photographer at Visi Productions.
They treated us like family and still do to this day. Life is a little sweeter thanks to their help on our perfect day.

Made our wedding day the most memorable day!
My husband and I got married at The Emerald Theatre and it was the most beautiful wedding. The planning went smoothly and we were given the best assistance by Tony, Cecilia and John. The venue is so beautiful and we styled our decor and colors around the elegant reds and golds that the theatre boasts. The architecture is from the same architect that designed the Fox Theatre in Detroit and the team at Emerald Theatre has done a fantastic job of restoring the Theatre to her original glory. Our guests raved about how amazing their night was, some even claiming it was the best night they ever had!! What a compliment! Everything really came together with the planning, execution, food, drinks, service, decor and to top it all off... our names on the marquee! I recommend The Emerald to all my friends and family, because I can’t wait to be there again and celebrate. Thank you to all who made our special day so very memorable.Sent on 12/30/2020
