WOW!!!!!! I don't even know where to start other than our wedding was a dream come true at the Hippodrome Theatre! Everyone was so easy to work with and were open to everything we asked them to do! Our guests felt comfortable and so many guests have told us this was the best wedding they have every been to. My husband and I literally had the entire Theatre to ourselves the day of our wedding and me and my girls were able to get ready in the Star Dressing Room while my husband and his boys were in the VIP Lounge. The entire day and night we were both catered to in order to ensure that this was the day we both imagined. We were married on stage and had our reception which was just breath taking was on stage as well! We now feel like a part of the Hippodrome Family and we are just so happy we choose to get married and have our reception there!

Kim was our coordinator and catering contact. She was beyond helpful, she gave us ideas on how to go about the reception, lists of vendors which we used and were awesome (bakery and dj). She was there the whole time on the day of and made sure everything ran smoothly. Her helpers maurice and jeff also brought a great sense of energy and fun to our reception. Kim was professional and helpful throughout the whole process, even working to meet our budget needs!

The food was delicious!! I would definitely work with them again in the future for any events.

AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! Kim and the entire staff at the Hippodrome were great. Our wedding and reception went off without a hitch. Everyone was extremely pleasant and professional, not only to us, but to all of our guests. All of the details were set-up exactly as I requested. Hats off to the Chef. The food was delicious! I could not have asked for a better venue. And the pictures look amazing.

A great unique venue if you are looking for something different. Kim was a huge help and was always available for questions and to talk. She was very accommodating the week of with letting us bring stuff in early, being there for the rehearsal the night before, being on call/email all day until she came in and letting us bring in our dog for pictures the day of :)

My only thing was that make sure the chairs are clean if you are using their chairs and the Food/Beverage managers can be difficult at times to work with if you bring in a caterer or make any special switches to your bar.

The M & T Bank Pavillion is the perfect place for a reception. Everyone that works at the Hippodrome, especially Katie and Becky, and for Spectrum Catering, especially John, is so helpful and accomodating. They really want you to have a perfect wedding. All the bells and whistles are there (uplighting, gobos) and you can have your name on the marquee! The food was amazing- nothing but raves from all of my guests. And they are extremely flexible with what your meal can be...we decided on a three-couse meal with wine pairings, but another couple I know had hot dogs! Highly, highly recommended!!

The hippodrome was an amazing venue for our ceremony and reception. We had our ceremony on the stage, cocktail hour in the lobby and reception in the M&T bank pavilion. They went above and beyond to make the day special and made sure that every small detail was perfect

The Hippodrome/M&T Bank Pavilion - Everything was perfect! We used on of the lobbies for our cocktail hour, the pavilion for the reception and we had the board room for a private cocktail hour for the bridal party. There was another event at the theater that night, but there were no problems keeping the two things separate. They did a wonderful job!

Spectrum - Spectrum is the Hippodrome's in-house caterer. They are a national catering company, and we had heard really good things about them. We had a coordinator, Kristen, who was in regular contact with us. We were able to set our own menu and the chef really worked with us to do exactly what we wanted, even taking things we liked from two different dishes to create our own dish. And Kristen was amazing. She added little details that we didn't think about, but really added a polish to everything. Our guests raved about the food and many said it was the only wedding meal they ever really enjoyed.
