    The Rhapsody is a a beautiful venue and Rita makes everything easy for the bride and family. The ballroom comes decorated with beautiful flowers in my wedding colors that Rita put together. We had the option to do our own centerpieces which saved us money and allowed us a personal touch. The outdoor garden wedding was beautiful and we didn't need to decorate anything. Rita and her son Brian (our DJ) made everything easy and enjoyable. Weddings can be very stressful but our venue details were made easy with these two. We opted for the photo booth which was a huge hit! We also opted to use the cottage next to the venue for the bridal party to get ready. It was so fun having a place to spend our day without the worry I being late or traveling to the venue. It was also a fun place for the wedding party to gather before and after the ceremony. Rita's recommended alcohol and food vendors have worked with The Rhapsody on many occasions so they all knew exactly what to do so there was no hassle at all. We did regret getting optional wedding coordinator because she didn't really do anything. We had a rehearsal but none of the ushers knew what to do afterwards or during the ceremony (which I didn't find out until after the wedding luckily and we were given a refund for our troubles) but everything else was just spectacular! We received tons of compliments from guests of all ages.
