    My daughter’s wedding

    Our daughters wedding was at The Rhapsody in Independence Missouri April 30th. We had to reschedule the date twice due to the pandemic. We originally had it on a Saturday but ended up with a Friday due to the volume of weddings being rescheduled. We are so happy we had it on a Friday. Worked out well for our out-of-town guest and gave us time on Saturday to spend time together. We loved the decorations and fresh flower arrangements that owner Rita made. Highly recommend Bryan the DJ. He prepared Brooke and Lee with itinerary for the entire wedding. He laid out what was needed to keep the wedding reception moving and how to ensure they had time to thank each guest. He spliced some music together for them. He was very enthusiastic and professional. Stephanie the wedding coordinator was organized and accommodating. She walked us through the entire ceremony. Kept the wedding party organized. She helped set up the live stream and helped keep photo booth operating. She also cleaned up several spills. At the end of the evening she made several bouquets out of the fresh flowers for our out-of-town guest. At the end of the evening when we were loading up our stuff one of the groomsmen made a comment this is the first time I’ve attended a wedding that had the least amount of stuff to load up. Its because The Rhapsody accommodated for most of our needs we didn’t have to do anything it was wonderful. I’ve already had three people reach out to ask the price of the venue which I felt was very reasonable for everything that was provided and the professional guidance we received. Rita from the very beginning prepared us, set up meetings with us. Told us what to expect. Bryan and Stephanie complemented by providing us with their professional guidance during their meetings. Best decision we made. Highly recommended Deb.

    Above and Beyond All Expectations!

    The Rhapsody goes above and beyond any expectations you have. They were absolutely phenomenal people to work with. The communication was fantastic, we were involved in every step. The coordinator provided, Kaci, was outstanding! She was patient, knowledgeable, so easy to get along with, and made sure everything went smoothly for us on our day. We chose Bryan, the in house DJ, as our DJ. He kept everything moving along, and knew exactly how to handle the crowd. It was absolutely beautiful, everything I envisioned. My guest had an amazing time. I cannot say thank you enough!
