The Rialto Square Theatre is a BEAUTIFUL venue both to hold your ceremony and reception. The wedding coordinator Trish is amazing; she's knowledgeable, friendly, patient, and quick with responses to inquiries. We were so happy we chose the Rialto for our wedding - the pictures turned out amazing!

The Rialto Square Theater was the most beautiful location for hosting a wedding especially a holiday one. The venue was already equiped with a stunning Christmas Tree, Wreaths throughout the seating area, and garland with lighting along the long marble stair case. The day of the wedding, I could have not have asked for more from their staff that included an onsite manager, A/V Director, Stage hands, security, coat check, bartenders, barbacks and numerous volunteers. Prior to the day of, you work with the Event Coordinator, Trish, to handle the logistics. As the bridal planner, you have to understand this is not a typical resort/catering venue to book with. Almost everything needs to be brought in and there are several restrictions as it is a historical Landmark. I asked hundreds of planning questions throughout the year and received a lot of reasoning why some of my concepts could not come to fruition. Just understand the Rialto KNOWS what works and they will make sure by the week of your wedding that you are in the know. At times correspondance was not as quick as I would prefer, but that is because they are not a wedding only venue. The host many shows and have Rialto Charity events, throughout the year. With one person handling the year's events, you have to respect the lag time. We were fortunate to have the ceremony on stage and this was by far the best decision. How could you not after taking in the ornate beauty and seeing the organist play on that famous organ? I would never change the decision to host my wedding here and glad my little childhood dream of having it at the Rialto came true. Everyone in attendance is still making remarks of the unbelievable beauty. Thank goodness I booked the best photographer and videographer to capture it all.

Note: glassware is not included-need to rent through a caterer though the bartenders and liquor is provided through Rialto.

The rialto is an absolutely beautiful venue, but the coordinator, Trish can be a bit of a pain to deal with. She is really bad at returning calls or emails, unless your wedding is that weekend. The one good thing was that Trish doesn't actually deal with the day of details, one of the house staff does, and they are all extremely helpful and nice. Our house staff member gave tours of the theatre to guests and turned on the lights in the theatre at least three times so that we could take pictures or guests could see it, without complaint. Overall, I don't regret for one second having our reception here, but if you are considering it, just be prepared to be persistent with Trish.

Although we had to work around the Rialto's venue rules (due to the fact that it is a historical landmark), the venue was absolutely beautiful and so unique - we received so many compliments on our venue and our guests were so impressed with the wedding! We hardly had to decorate, due to the fact that they venue is so elaborately beautiful!

The Rialto was breathtaking! It was an absolute honor to have my wedding there. I don't know that I could have picked a more gorgeous venue...it was amazing and everyone commented on it being so. I loved every minute of it.

We were extremely pleased with the service we received at the Rialto. The staff was extremely helpful the day of the wedding, and everything that I asked for was taken care of. I didn't have to worry about a thing. The venue itself is breathtaking, and our wedding will always be unique because of it. All of our guests raved at how different our wedding was. We tied everything together with a movie theme, and the staff at the Rialto made all of our wishes come to life, including a "True Hollywood Story" presentation on the big screen in the theatre!

The Rialto theatre was the most beautiful place that I could ever imagine for my wedding. When I saw the venue, I knew right away that was the location for my dream wedding. The value was reasonable for the location and planning the wedding was amazing. The coordinator was very helpful in finding vendors. The only flaw in the wedding was the coordinator for the day of the wedding was very rude, abrasive, not professional. She asked my DJ to stop playing an hour before the end time in the contract. She called the bride and groom and the wedding party "Kids" all night with a numerous other rude comments to guests and the parents of the bride and groom. When I called the next day to complain and ask for an apology nothing was done. I would recommend meeting the coordinator prior to the wedding that is going to be there the day of the wedding. We never met this lady and had no dealings with the entire year before the wedding. All the other staff were very nice and wonderful, so we would not of expected the person in charge the day of our wedding to be so demeaning.
