No regrets! I'd book them again.
We had our reception at Vintage Ballroom and I have no regrets. So much good! I love that they are across from a huge parking lot in the Old Market - we had no worries about parking. I love that we were able to bring in our own alcohol and food. We are still enjoying our "leftover" alcohol. We loved our Old Market photos taken right outside the venue - there are so many great photo opportunities nearby. Rebekah was so helpful with all the details. They played soft jazz music over the sound system so we didn't need to have our own playlist. Everything was easy and effortless and enjoyable. Highly recommended.Sent on 12/15/2019

The Vintage Ballroom is a Perfect Venue!
My wife and I planned our own wedding and started by looking at venues. The Vintage Ballroom was only the second location we looked at and we put a deposit down the very next day. Rebekah and her team host a lot of eventsSent on 11/19/2019
and we quickly understood why: they are extremely good at what they do. We booked it a year in advance and Rebekah was always available and ready to answer our questions. We ended up with about 90 total guests and she had suggestions for things that would/wouldn't work, explained how things would run clearly, and has done this so many times that she's familiar with a lot of vendors around town which makes coordinating the days before, during, and after really easy. Rebekah will put in the late and long hours to make sure the event runs smoothly and her staff is prepared. Even with a photo-booth and food from different places at various times during the reception, Rebekah accommodated us and the setup so that it would all work. Simply put, the Vintage Ballroom is a wonderful family-run operation that gave us everything we could ask for on our special day. We highly recommend the Vintage Ballroom to anyone looking to get married in Omaha.
