I used the Paramount Theatre for my September wedding and it was absolutely beautiful. The event coordinator made sure everything was taken care of, scheduled meetings around my schedule, walked me through every detail, answered all of my questions and dealt with my crazy wedding mood swings! The ceremony and reception were both held in their Grand Gallery, which was very open and next to their newly remodeled bar, which was amazing.
I recommend it 100%!
I suggested that my sister have her wedding at the Paramount Theatre in Aurora. It is a beautiful art deco theatre with all the trimmings- tapestries, chandeliers and a beautiful dressing room. The staff was wonderful. They kept the wedding moving on schedule. They were friendly and courteous. They stayed and helped clean-up and pack-up all items into the appropriate vehicles.
They were a joy and a pleasure to work with the day of my sister’s wedding. Thank you!!
The view is spectacular, plenty of room for everybody. This place has a great home feeling. The people that assisted there, from the Event Coordinator to our Bartenders were all professional and fun to work with.
I would highly recommend!
My husband and I are actors and met doing a show. It was only fitting that we get married in a theatre. Our ceremony was held in the original lobby underneath a beautiful chandelier with a staircase as our aisle. We then had our reception onstage. It was unique, vintage and very much us.
The entire staff for the day was absolutely wonderful!
I cannot say enough great things about having my wedding at The Meyer Ballroom.
From booking the venue to the day-of, everything was absolutely perfect.
We held our reception at the Paramount Grand Gallery. The staff was very helpful, the price was reasonable and everyone was very impressed…
the Paramount makes a gorgeous setting for a stunning reception!
The staff here truly helped in making our reception perfect. It was a pleasure working with everyone involved.
I would recommend using your place to anyone.
They were extremely thorough and helped us plan out and realized our vision so that the day of the wedding went very smoothly.
We could enjoy the day with our guests without any unexpected bumps.
The venue is just great! The inside is amazing, and the ceiling to floor windows provide for such a perfect backdrop at night with everything lit up. The ambiance that the Meyer Ballroom/Atrium provides is simply perfect. We received so many compliments from our family, friends, and guests!
We are so glad we chose the Meyer Ballroom to share our special day with our family and friends!
Lisa and Ryan G.
We got married there and had the most wonderful time. The staff was so helpful and made everything run smoothly. We couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful day and a large part of that was due to the staff at the Paramount!
A great, unique venue for a wedding or to go see a show with its gorgeous theater!
Everything was wonderful from planning phase to execution.
Everyone raved about the quality of the site, the food, the ambiance, everything.
Taryn and Kevin H.
