One Happy Mother-of-the-Bride’s Testimonial:
Our daughter was recently married at The Paramount Theater in Charlottesville, VA. It was a beautiful and fun venue for a wedding! She followed the theater theme from the Save The Date to the Invitations to the Programs. She had a poster size picture displayed outside the theater as “Now Showing” and The Paramount literally rolled out the red carpet for the guests. They had “Congratulations Sara and Zeke” on the marquee. It was also fun having the bride toss her bouquet from the Loggia on the second floor to the street below to all her single friends! The theater made for a beautiful setting for the ceremony and the upstairs rooms were perfect for the reception.
The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. I highly recommend The Paramount for a wedding!
