    The Perfect Venue!

    I could not be happier with the Meyer Ballroom. As a COVID Bride, there was that extra level of stress in planning a wedding and the Meyer Ballroom and Briana helped make this the wedding of my dreams through it all. I could never thank them enough for all of their hard work. If you are looking for an Aurora, IL wedding venue.. look no further!

    Paramount's Meyer Ballroom's reply:

    So glad you and Tyler finally got to celebrate your love! We were so happy to be part of your day. You wedding was absolutely beautiful. Wishing you all the love! -Bri

    Amazing venue

    Meyer Ballroom is beautiful and the only place to celebrate any event! We had our reception there and it was fantastic! And the bridal suite was just amazing! The centerpieces were pretty lanterns provided by Meyer so I didn't have to waste time or money on 15-20 floral arrangements. The riverfront is a gorgeous area for pictures and the new atrium is just fantastic! But the best part of Meyer is the staff! We had to reschedule due to Covid and every step of the way Breanne and Brianna were there to help make the transition as smooth as possible. No extra stress or worrying!

    Paramount's Meyer Ballroom's reply:

    We're so happy to hear your wedding was everything you wanted it to be and we're glad we could ease your stress and worries! Wishing you both so much love! -Bri and Breanne
