Quality of Service











We enjoyed our daughter/son-in-law's catered/DJ'd dance wedding reception 6/6/2014. Rita & Joy were wonderfully helpful in set-up and preparation. We loved our total experience with The Rhapsody.

The Rhapsody is Eastern Jackson County's Premier Wedding & Reception Venue! We provide a truly affordable, elegant experience.

Dance the night away in our Grand Ballroom with romantic, dimmable lighting and exquisite chandelier for that truly memorable first dance picture.

Our outdoor Garden is a photographer's dream, with everything our couples need for amazing wedding photos! You and your guests will surely be Wowed by the lush garden landscape! From an array of flowers and a sparkling waterfall, to the abundant amount of green space and pergola for your fairytale ceremony, we can guarantee you will not be disappointed! Add even more bling and ask about our diamond curtain!

We accommodate up to 300 guests (250 seated).

We have been proudly serving happy couples for over 10 years! We know that flexibility is important to our couples. For a truly customizable event we offer an Open Vendor Policy at no extra charge. Eat & Drink what you love on your wedding day!

At The Rhapsody, we strive to go the extra mile to take away any stress that may come with planning a wedding and reception. That is why we now include more amenities than ever before!
