    Though expensive, worth every penny!

    We worked with both Abby and Melissa when Abby went on maternity leave this summer, and both ladies were great to work with! We had a walk-through with Abby when we were still making our decision and then had our final planning meeting a month before our big day and worked on our wedding day with Melissa.

    The space itself is unique and absolutely breathtaking. We chose to have our ceremony in the balcony, our cocktails/hors d'oeuvres in the foyer, and our reception in the main theater/orchestra pit. The ambiance in all spaces was so special and added such a cool and unique touch to our wedding. Everyone we talked to couldn't stop RAVING about it! Though a tad on the expensive side, we are so pleased with our decision to have our wedding here.

    We are thrilled we held our son's groom's dinner at the Orpheum! The place is historic, unique and Abby the Event Coordinator was wonderful. She was so easy to work with and she is very detailed and responsive. The evening was amazing and we could not have been happier. I would recommend Abby and venue!

    If you are looking for a unique venue, this is it. What is wonderful is you can have an entire evening here and move through different spaces. We had our ceremony in the balcony, cocktail hour in the lobby, and then the reception in the main theater so guests continually got to experience new spaces throughout the evening. The theater is beautifully restored and requires little decoration as you are in such a beautiful space. The staff has great ideas and is very accommodating in trying to make your particular wedding work the way you want and also be unique.
