The Capitol Theatre is an amazing venue for any event, especially weddings!!!. The theatre itself has been around for a long time, but was revamped a few years ago to restore its condition. I had my wedding ceremony and reception here, and couldn't have been happier! The ceremony was even on stage, which was cool because it was so different! Heath and Debbie (the owner and coordinator) were so nice, and made everything really easy for me. First of all, it was pretty affordable for someone on a budget - it was a little more than some other places I looked, but it was worth the extra cost because so many things that were included would have been extra costs somewhere else (the rental for the night starts at 2400). For example: I didn't have to rent tables or chairs, they had really cute tables toppers that matched the venue (for $5 a table), the venue is BYOB (no corking fee's for anything we provided!) and you can sign up for a premium package that uses the owner as a DJ. Now, the only thing I was a 'control freak' about was the music for the evening - I made a playlist for the whole night and Heath (the owner/DJ) met up with me a few days before the event to look over everything. I was worried he wouldn't be able to find all the music we picked since most of it was not top 40, etc. He found all of our songs in his system and matched everything to either a music video, live performance, or old/obscure movie clips. It was SO cool, and he previewed some stuff for me in the theatre when we met. It was cool too because I didn't have to provide or pay to download any of the songs, I just typed up a list for him and he did the rest. The theatre uses Sullivan's restaurant for catering, which was very convenient because it is next door, and their food was a-m-a-z-i-n-g, everyone was talking about how good it was (we did a pasta bar, yum). Debbie acted as wedding coordinator and told us where to go and what to do, and she is very sweet. She was who I met with and talked to about everything regarding number of guests, table set ups, food, etc. Everything was beautiful, and we had a blast! This place would be great for any party. I think we had the coolest wedding ever thanks to the capitol :)

Magical dream come true
Haley and Heath were wonderful to work with. They are true professionals in what they do. They were so easy to work with and made sure our night was perfect. We had stage magic during our receptions and Haley helped us determine the best flow and Heath made sure that everyone had the technical support they needed. Haley also worked with our vendors to insure flawless set up the day of. The staff at the Capitol Theatre made our day truly magical!

We can't say enough amazing things about the Capitol Theater, Haley, and Heath! Our wedding day was absolutely dreamy! From the very 1st time we walked in, we knew we were in for a treat. My now husband, and I were looking all over town for reception venues. We knew we didn't want our reception to be outside or in a barn. Considering where we live, that left us with downtown knoxville and that's it. After touring some of the venues in Knoxville, we weren't in love. We felt as if we HAD to use their cater or their bar, etc etc.... We felt overwhelmed and almost like we were going to have to settle. THEN WE COME ACROSS THE BEAUTY THAT IS THE CAPITOL THEATER! Our tour was so catered to US. Our names were everywhere, Haley was so professional and answered all of my 26339 questions that I had, we were hosted to a private tour with the most amazing set list....we were blown away! This venue was it! It was everything that we were looking for! We could bring our own food, our own bar service, it had the capacity to fit our 200 guest list, WE WERE IN LOVE! through out the whole process Haley felt like a friend I had known my whole life. I was so excited about our venue that I just wanted to show it off! All 5 times Haley so graciously gave our loved ones a tour! No hesitation! She made sure I was informed every step of the way, and if there was anything that I need, seriously ANYTHING! She was there to help! Fast forward to our wedding day- If we could re-do our wedding day every weekend, we would! IT WAS THAT FUN!!! Haley and Heath....y'all THEY WERE ON POINT! I come from a Mexican catholic family and Heath was PERFECTION with the music! It was the perfect mix of our cultures, and we were obsessed! The dance floor stayed packed, NO ONE WANTED TO LEAVE IT WAS THAT FUN YALL!! We literally danced the night away...literally...we were the till midnight!!! Everything about our day was magic, and the Capitol theater played a HUGE role into making that happen! We love you!Sent on 06/08/2018

Best day of my life. Hayley and Heath were amazing and made everything so easy. If you want a wedding where everyone will say it's the best wedding they've been to then choose the Capitol theatre. We would get married 100 times if we could do it there everytime.

There are not enough words to describe how amazing this venue is. My husband Michael and I were married here on January 20th, 2018. To say the event director Haley and dj Heath were exceptional is an understatement. So professional, they knew exactly what we wanted and worked closely with us to make sure our vision came to life. I pity anyone who doesn’t have a day-of coordinator for their wedding, and Haley was there the whole time to make sure everything ran smoothly. The coordinator and dj are included with the venue, with is an amazing deal. The venue itself is beautiful, straight out of vintage Hollywood. You need hardly anything as far as decorations if you get the glamour package, which includes table decor and the lovely chandelier on stage where you’ll do the ceremony and first dance. You can tell Heath and Haley have poured heart and soul into this business, and you don’t need to look any further than the Capitol for a fairy tale wedding.Sent on 01/26/2018

There are not enough words to describe how amazing the Capitol Theatre is. My wife Brandi and I were married here on January 20th, 2018. We could not have made it through the process or had the finished product that we did without the Event Director, Haley, and the DJ/Owner, Heath. To say that they were amazing is an understatement. We had the ideas and the vision of what we wanted our wedding to be and the two of them brought it to life. Brandi and I both thoroughly enjoyed working with Haley and Heath throughout the entire process from the signing of the contract all the way through the sparkler exit. A wedding is very much like a production or a movie. There’s a ton of planning, organizing, scheduling, a rehearsal, and so much more behind the scenes than most people realize that goes into a wedding. When you stop and think about it, an old theater really is the perfect setting for a wedding. I think for us, we enjoyed the fact that Haley and Heath worked so closely with us and made everything so personal. That is something that we will remember forever. Many of our guests have told us that our wedding was one of the funnest weddings that they have been to or that it was the most fun that they had in a long time.

If you are worried about having a day-of coordinator for your wedding, then the Capitol is where you need to go. One part of Haley’s job as the Event Director is to be there during the whole event to make sure everything runs smoothly and that the Bride and Groom don’t have to worry about all of the little details. The coordinator and DJ services are included with the venue, with is an amazing deal.

We highly recommend The Capital Theater. Haley & all the were excellent and a great help. They were easy to deal with and very accommodating. One of the best decisions we made for our wedding.
Ashley · Married on 11/11/2017
This venue was absolutely incredible!!! The staff was nothing but helpful and available any time day or night to answer all my silly bride questions. All my guests of all ages had such a fun experience at the theatre. I was told multiple times it is going to be hard to top this wedding because the venue was amazing! Highly Highly recommend using this venue :)

If you are looking for a wow factor event filled with fun and energy, you don't need to look any further. If you want to surprise your guests with amazing sights and sounds, this is the perfect venue. And, if you are looking to do all of this with folks who help you every step of the way and make life easy peasy for you, this is definitely the place to be. Heath, Haley & crew are the very best. Thank you all for giving my daughter an absolutely magical wedding day. Everyone had a great time. And, as I have told you guys before, the business meeting we held there previously is still the one everyone talks about. Hats off to jobs well done. Thank you so very much!
Lauren · Married on 10/13/2017
We had a Friday the 13th wedding in October this year at The Capitol and it was the best day of our lives! Joining together as one with all our family and close friends to witness was truly a blessing. Haley and Heath went above and beyond to make sure our day was true perfection! All the little details Heath incorporated to go along with some creepy but yet fun aspects of Jason for the Friday the 13th was such a big hit with everyone! We couldn't have asked for better people whom we now consider dear friends to help us on such an important day in our lives. Haley and Heath you will always hold a special place in our hearts.
Kristan · Married on 09/29/2017
We planned to look at a few other Venues after looking at the capital and when we walked in we were sold. The venue is absolutely beautiful and one of a kind in the area and the staff is so wonderful. Hayley helped so much along the way and Heath put everything together for us with the lights and music. We were very pleased with The Capitol and have already talked about Vow renewals being there at our 5 or 10 year anniversary.
Sheila · Married on 09/25/2017
I have no thing but awesome things to say about Haley and Heath. The venue was absolutely stunning and Haley and Heath were excellent. I was able to communicate with Haley via email and she always responded within the hour which made it easy for me to complete what I was working on. They took their time in explaining how everything would work and also made sure we didn't miss any key elements to our wonderful day. I would highly recommend Haley, Heath and their team along with the beautiful Capitol Theater.
Valerie · Married on 07/08/2017
The Capitol Theatre made our dream wedding come true!!!!! Everything about the day was perfect :) Haley did such an amazing job coordinating everything and making sure I had everything I needed on wedding day and felt comfortable and relaxed as possible! Her and Health make a great team- He played all the songs we wanted and created the BEST atmosphere for our guests!!! We got so many compliments about how magical the night was, our guests were very pleased with the theatre as well! I am so happy and thankful I chose this place to have my wedding, highest recommendation!! :)
Chrissy · Married on 06/17/2017
My new husband and I got married at The Capitol Theatre 6/17/17. Haley and Heath were so helpful in making our day amazing. This really is your one stop wedding venue with the table displays already set up and the DJ (Heath) in house to assist with all your music needs. My husband sang to me that day on stage with his guitar and my niece had her 6 year old dreams come true when she got to sing on stage with her own microphone to Katy Perry "Roar" in the background, during the reception. From the videos on screen to the air conditioning for your summer wedding, it was truly perfect. My photographer Rachel Mobley is very familiar with this venue and the task of taking on an inside venue for a wedding, highly recommend her as well. Sullivan's next door caters and no one, absolutely no one had anything negative to say about the Pot roast and Caribbean chicken we chose. My cake was from "The Bees's Knees" by Dodie who delivered two amazing cakes for us, that everyone loved as well. From music, to food, to loads of fun this is the perfect place to get married, well at least it was for us!!
Delyn · Married on 05/19/2017
We had our wedding on a Friday evening at this location. It was absolutely a dream come true. Everything went perfectly to plan with help from the tremendous staff. The venue itself is just stunning, and absolutely immaculate. The coordinator went above and beyond to make sure we handled everything to put my nerves at ease. Leading up to the event, I could text at any time with any questions and receive helpful and kind responses. The planning meeting went well and was quick easy and painless. Everything that I had concerns about was quickly remedied and handled professionally. The staff was very flexible to last minute changes, and made my husband and I feel welcomed and well taken care of. The Bridal suite was spacious and beautiful. We had plenty of room and a wonderful place to relax. The 8' mirror was wonderful to take bridal shots with, and made me feel like a queen. My husband and the groomsmen all loved the groom's room downstairs. The staff there are wonderful and will help you with anything you need. They definitely go above and beyond to look out for all of your needs. The beauty of the venue also can't be overstated. It is an incredible place to host events and you can't go wrong with this venue.

It is very hard to put into words exactly how much I love The Capitol Theatre. You walk in, and the energy of the environment welcomes you like you are going back home to where you grew up. The staff is unprecedented for this industry. This level of service, you can't find anywhere else. Before my husband and I decided to have our Star Wars themed Wedding at The Capitol we did our homework. We must have scoped out 10 other venues, and then stopped looking once we went through the initial viewing of The Capitol to see what it had to offer with Heath and Haley. It was more than obvious what our choice should be as to where to have our special day. I am beyond impressed with Heath's passion for what he does and Haley's level of event coordination. If you expect nothing less than perfection then let me be blunt from experience-they do not disappoint. Every single person at our wedding told my husband and I that it was the best wedding they had ever been to...I really do not know how much more you could ask for.
Tammy · Married on 04/14/2017
We held our daughters wedding at the Capitol Theater and could not have been more pleased. The venue is simply stunning. Haley and her staff went above and beyond to make sure no detail was overlooked. I had no stress whatsoever as I knew Haley was in control. We used Sullivan's (next door) as the caterer, and the guests are still calling to tell me how much they enjoyed the food. The grooms mother, the officiant, and I are celiac; Haley personally ordered dinner for us, and hand delivered it to each table to make sure there was no danger of cross contamination. Heath also did an amazing job on the light and sound show. I would highly recommend the Capitol Theater to anyone who is looking for a beautiful venue and an absolutely amazing party.
Sheri · Married on 03/17/2017
My husband and I just got married last Friday and we were absolutely blown away with everything Heath and Haley did us. They made our night magical and special. Haley made the whole night feel completely special for me. Thank you to Halry and Heath for all they did. This is an amazing please to have your special event. I'm so happy we decided on the Capitol for our wedding.
