    Absolutely Perfect!

    As cheesy as it sounds, choosing Vintage Ballroom was truly one of the best decisions I made in wedding planning. The venue was perfect for our intimate winter wedding to have both ceremony and reception. Beyond that, Rebeka was fantastic to work with. We were originally scheduled in 2020, but after having to reschedule to 2021, she was so accommodating and throughout that time she's made even more awesome renovations to the space and updates in her services offered. She's very willing to work with you to create the day into what you want it to be, but also offers great suggestions. Throughout the process, I had many times where I would email Rebeka questions I had and she would always get back to me quickly and make me feel 1000 times better about whatever I was worrying about! We went with the bartender, security and Day of Coordinator and I cannot emphasize how worth it that was! I knew things were taken care of that day and they went above and beyond to take care of the little details that I would have never even thought of. I cannot recommend them enough!!

    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.
