    Absolute best wedding venue

    We walked into the Rapids Theatre and I was hooked! We fell in love with the venue and especially how EASY Lindsay and the Rapids team made the entire process! From start to finish there is not one thing I would change about our wedding. They fully transformed the theatre into exactly what we had dreamed of! We had numerous guests telling us this was by far the BEST wedding they have attended. Thank You Rapids wishing we could relive our wedding every single day!

    Absolutely perfect!

    If you’re looking for a unique venue, this is it. Lindsay from Rapids is incredible. Every detail was done to perfection. The food provided by Rich’s was excellent. The sound system and lighting is concert quality. Everything was absolutely beautiful. When there’s no do-overs, why gamble? They delivered a level of service that totally exceeded my expectations.
