Made Our Wedding Perfect!
We had the absolute best experience with Vintage Ballroom and Rebekah! Firstly, it’s a gorgeous space and they’ve done some upgrades to make it over the top beautiful and perfect for what we wanted for our wedding. The process was so easy, they have tables/chairs, decor, servers, bartenders, and no restrictions on catering. We used all of their decor and only brought in flowers of our own for decoration. I would 100% recommend hiring Rebekah for day of coordinating, it made an already easy experience even more stress free! We literally dropped off buckets of flowers the night before and when we came back the next day she had decorated all of the tables, the aisle, and the ceremony arch beautifully! Rebekah is so kind and kept checking to see if we needed drinks or snacks during the night, and she even found a sewing kit for me when we had a wardrobe malfunction during dancing! I could not imagine a better place or people for a wedding, so do not hesitate to book with them for yours, you won’t regret it!Sent on 07/29/2020

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 was a very affordable wedding venue for a DIY type wedding, but still provides great accommodations such as tables/chairs/bartenders/DJ.
Rebekah was incredibly responsive and quickly answered questions throughout the entire process. As Covid-19 restrictions changed, she proactively reached out to let us know how they affected us and how we could still have the wedding we hoped for.
Rebekah as a day of coordinator made the actual wedding day stress-free and easy. She took the vision of decor and exceeded all our expectations for set up as well as coordinated with our vendors and guests throughout the evening.Sent on 12/02/2020
