The Royal Oak Music Theatre is an amazing place to hold a reception that’s unique in every way! We pride ourselves on our attention to detail, and promise to create an unforgettable experience that even fairy tales can’t match.

Picture driving up to the theatre and seeing your name surrounded by bright dancing lights on our historical marquee. This is the start of your special day.

Enter our historic lobby adorned in true 1920’s Art Deco decor. The lobby is a beautifully ornate location to have an onsite ceremony. Or, it can function as a fun and funky spot to hold your cocktail hour while guests mingle and watch a photo montage of your favorite pictures in our digital poster cases!

Afterward, the doors to the main theatre open for guests to experience your grand reception... It’s not a dream, although it will feel like one.

Having your reception at a premiere concert venue has many perks. First, there’s multi-dimensional aesthetics. We have four levels of seating opportunities that graduate down to the stage. This ensures every guest feels important, and guests will appreciate being able to see the bride and groom throughout the entire reception.

Second, we pride ourselves on our unparelled performance capabilities. We use our professional grade sound and lighting systems for every wedding - the same that we use for our concerts! Your guests will be dazzled by the light show as we create an exciting atmosphere that will keep them dancing all night. A special feature of our venue is the acoustic tiles that cover the ceiling, so guests can have conversations and be able to hear over the music without difficulties.

Of course we couldn’t forget to mention our bar! It becomes a gathering place where goofy pictures, intriguing conversations and (need we mention) delicious beverages, are enjoyed by all.

Lastly, we believe that you should be given the option to choose the companies you want to work with. You are given the freedom to pick your own caterer, designer, photographer, entertainment, and florist, or use one of our preferred vendors - you will only be limited by your imagination and desire to do as much or as little as you please.

If you’ve always dreamed of getting married like a rock star, then look no futher than the Royal Oak Music Theatre!

    Royal Oak Music Theatre is coolest wedding venue

    The one thing I knew I wanted for my wedding was an out-of-the-box venue. I have been to so many weddings inside a standard hall and they all seem the same. After searching for unique wedding venues, we stumbled upon the Royal Oak Music Theatre, and I absolutely fell in love. Walking in at first, it is somewhat difficult to envision a wedding layout in a space like they have, but after understanding and seeing pictures, the room transform into, in my opinion, the best type of wedding layout. You walk into the theatre entryway: gorgeous and a large space. We used this space as our entry way and our area for cocktail hour. We had 300 guests and this space was great! You walk over to the biggest bar I have ever seen for a wedding! Our second request for our wedding was a cool bar atmosphere (because we wanted our guests to have the best time) and check that off the box. This bar area is incredible. Not only is it huge, it really is a place for guests to socialize and talk. Most wedding bars – people wait in this huge line, pushing their way up to the 1 or 2 bartenders on staff. This bar is so huge, that everyone can hang around the bar. Since we had 300 guests, we had 4 bartenders and an additional runner – so no one was waiting on a drink. I loved seeing guests hang around the bar and using it to socialize with other guests. Then you look into the theatre, which is set up so no matter where you sit, you get the best seat in the house. The theatre has little slight levels – broken out by a few stairs each. The levels allow all guests to be close to the action and get a great view of the reception events. Sometimes you go to a wedding and can barely see what is happening when you get stuck in the back corner – but that is not the case here. We decided to have the bridal party sit on the stage, which I loved – again because everyone could see us. And you have the biggest dance floor to keep your guests dancing and partying all throughout the night! And you can’t forget having your names outside on the huge, bright sign?! This space is absolutely insane. I have guests telling me over and over again that this was the best wedding that they have ever been too – 300 guests – many been to countless weddings – and this was the most memorable wedding. That right there was what I was looking for – and that is what you will get with the Royal Oak Music Theatre as your venue!!! But, I can’t forget those that helped me every step of the way to create this amazing wedding: Jessie and Shae. You will work with these fabulous ladies from the minute you ask to visit the venue till a month after your wedding when you are still emailing about how great the night was!!! They are the best to work with. They are so experienced with wedding planning, but also with what works and what doesn’t work in this specific space. They are always open to answer questions and help you with whatever you need like advice, vendors, etc. I worked with them both for almost a year – and they listened to my vision and helped me create that. That made great suggestions and offered a lot especially because I really had no idea what I was doing! I can not say enough good words about the venue and Jessie and Shae. My guests continuously talk about our wedding and it is two months later. If you are a bride or groom looking for a memorable venue and one amazing party / event, the Royal Oak Music Theatre is the venue for you! I can only speak about my wedding, but I know this venue would be great for other events because you have Jessie and Shae to help make your vision perfect!!

    Royal Oak Music Theater

    I had my wedding here in February and it was absolutely perfect! Jessie and Shea did everything to make sure our day went off without a hitch. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for something a little different, and a lot of fun!

    Deciding to host our wedding at the historic Royal Oak Music Theatre was the best decision we made (besides the decision to get married of course). From the start of wedding planning we knew that our #1 goal for the day of our wedding was to throw an awesome party for our friends and family, and that’s exactly what having our wedding at the ROMT allowed us to do. Many of our guests loved the history of the theatre and we heard several times “this is so amazing, we used to come here and watch movies as kids”. Who wouldn’t want to host their wedding reception where the famous Hall & Oates, Lady Gaga, and so many more have headlined? Additionally, you will have the opportunity to work directly with Jessie, the Special Events Director, and although so many others at the Theatre are involved, you’ll have the convenience of only working with one person who is extremely organized, responsive, and truly caring and dedicated to your special day – something that made life so much easier when working with multiple vendors leading up to the big day.
