    My husband and I love the theatre, so we wanted to find a venue that fits that. I was so lucky to have found the Regency Building. We had our wedding on the 2nd floor ballroom - The Lodge. It was beautiful and PERFECT! It has a stage with different backdrops to choose from, dark wood with red carpet, and stained glass windows. We had 160 guests, but the room can definitely fit more. The staff that we worked with were also wonderful. They were very responsive to our phone calls and emails.

    Beautiful reception venue! I had about 200 guests but it could easily fit up to 350. I used the Grand Ballroom and the architecture was perfect for my elegant-themed wedding reception. All of the people working at the Regency are very professional and responsive. They do weddings and large events all the time and can connect you with other vendors if you don't know where to begin. Although it's a bit pricey to rent the room, it was well worth it.
