All the world’s a stage..

..So let’s get married on it 🙂

The historic Orpheum Theatre is now available for special events, including weddings! In order to promote its new venue, the Orpheum graciously invited us to provide some of our gowns for their pictures!

The Theatre is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and recognized as one of the West’s most significant theater structures. The Orpheum Theatre was built by Joe E. Rickards and Harry Nace and was the last and largest major construction project in Phoenix just before the depression. When it opened on January 5, 1929, it was the pride of Phoenix. Originally conceived as a vaudeville house, the Orpheum was also part of a national movie theater chain.

After changing hands several times, developer Jim Kaufman purchased the Orpheum in the early 1980’s and turned it over to the City of Phoenix at no cost with the understanding that it would be completely rebuilt and refurbished. On January 29, 1997, the $14,500,000 completely renovated landmark opened its doors again under the ownership and operation of the City of Phoenix, Civic Plaza Department.
