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.
The Paramount’s staff took care of everything on the wedding day, so that my husband and I could enjoy every second of our celebration. It was honestly perfect! From the bartenders, to the tech crew, everyone went above and beyond to make for a great evening.

Pamela and Andrew 5.25.18
The First Date
We went to PF Chang’s at Woodfield Mall.
The Favorite Qualities
Pamela: He makes me laugh and I know that I can count on him to always be there for our family. We balance each other out because I am very emotional and tend to make decision based on my feelings and he is definitely more logical. He is great with our 2 month old daughter and I know she will end up being a daddy’s girl! He also makes me yummy tacos every Tuesday. 🙂
Andrew: She is very goofy and I like that we can be silly together and laugh. She keeps me in check when I just want to play video games all day. She is kind-hearted and is always thinking about other people and how they feel. She is a great mother to our daughter.
We couldn’t think of one moment in time. We just kind of knew when we first started living together and had to make adult decisions as a couple. Taking care of our home and our cat together. Figuring out our finances and general “adulting.”
The Meyer Ballroom was only the second venue we visited. We knew at our visit that we loved it and wanted to get married there. We really wanted a venue that could be our ceremony and reception space. We loved the beautiful floors and windows in the ballroom and the atrium was the perfect place for our ceremony. We also thought the surrounding area was beautiful and would make for great pictures. The packages were exactly what we needed and fit our budget. We really liked the flexibility of the space and that we had a few different options for our ceremony. It was comforting to know that we would have a coordinator with us for the whole process and the day of. Kelsey, our coordinator, was amazing from the beginning as well. She saved the day so many times!
The Wedding Party Proposal
Pamela: I did! I made a personalized keepsake box for each of my bridesmaids with a donut inside. The card said, “I Donut Want to Say I Do Without You!”
The Date Nights
We’re pretty boring when it comes to date nights! We love going out to dinner but since our daughter was born, our date nights are a little different. We love getting take out and binging a show on Netflix.
The Unique Touches
Pamela: I am an elementary school teacher so I had my students answer questions about love and marriage and they were part of the centerpieces on the tables. I also invited my class to come to the ceremony and a few of them were able to make it
Andrew: I am a big gamer so we had a video game area for those who didn’t want to dance.
We also had a donut wall that Pamela’s brothers made specifically for us.
Enticing Cuisine: They offered lots of yummy options (including a vegan option!) and were well priced.
DJ and Photobooth
Music By Design: Andrew is actually a wedding DJ on the weekends and works for Music By Design. We knew they would do amazing work and help make our wedding one to remember.
BJ Aguado Photography: We loved BJ’s photos from the beginning! He did our engagement photos and will be doing a family shoot with our daughter soon. He was super flexible and got all the shots we wanted!
Flowers and Decor
Style & Grace Events: Merna was so easy to work with! She gave us exactly what we wanted and stayed within our price range! She also did the flowers for my baby shower!
Dose of Lolade: She does amazing work! She made us all look beautiful while still looking natural!
Refuge Salon and Barbershop: Loved her flexibility and willingness to try different things until I found something that was totally me!
Jenni-Baby Bakes: She made our engagement party cake and it was delish! She listened to what I wanted and made a beautiful cake for us!
The Donut Drop: This is a mom and pop donut shop in Schaumburg. We used to get their donuts when we lived there.
