    My husband and I, had the pleasure of working with Rapids Theatre for our wedding day, on 8/4/18. From the moment I walked into Rapids Theatre, I knew this was going to be like no wedding I or any of our guests have ever been to. Lindsay was helpful, professional, and an absolute pleasure to work with. Our catering and planning was done through Rich's Catering, where Lindsay and Maureen work closely together, making sure that your day is perfect. When Rapids isn't hosting weddings, they are hosting concerts, which gave us the perfect opportunity to have live music. Our friends and family are all still raving about how it was the best wedding they have ever been to, and how amazing and kind all of the staff was . If you want something that is different than your typical wedding, something that your friends and family are not going to stop talking about, I give my full recommendation to Lindsay and Rapids Theatre. Thank you so much for all of your hard work and commitment to your customers, I could not have imagined a more perfect day.
