Ripken Stadium was a wonderful place to have our wedding reception. We didn't have our ceremony here, only our reception. The food was delicious, the employees were friendly, the value was great. We got lots of compliments on the food and on how cool it was to have our reception there.

The only thing that I can think of that I can complain about is the early last call. It wasn't when we were told that it was going to be but that aside it was a great night!

I don't even know were to begin! I absolutely loved my wedding at Ripken. The staff was so friendly and helpful and the venue is gorgeous! Claire was our coordinator and she was a saint! She quickly responded to my emails and had everything figured out for us. She is one of the sweetest people I have ever met!

We had over 200 people at our wedding. Sometimes food made for that number of people is not always the best. That was not so with Ripken. It was delicious! (Even though we ate hours after everyone else because we got caught up and forgot to eat. Claire saved us plates of food so that we could eat whenever we wanted.... that's one of the reasons why she is a saint!) Many guests told us how much they loved the food! That was great to hear!

I highly suggest Ripken as a ceremony and reception venue! They are very professional and accommodating!

Note: If you would like to reserve rooms across the street at the hotel, do so at least a year in advance. They fill up very quickly. We ended up getting rooms at the Hilton and Holiday Inn Express across 95 and shuttled people over. It worked out well!

We had our wedding and reception at Ripken Stadium on New Year's Eve. Lauren from Ripken worked with us for more than a year to make sure that everything was absolutely perfect! She was our right-hand throughout the entire planning process, and we can never thank her and the staff at Ripken enough for making our wedding so special! It was exactly what we wanted! The food was excellent, the room set-up was perfect, the bar service was well-priced, and the location was ideal for our out-of-state guests. The price for our entire event was outstanding, the best we found at any venue. We were even able to use the field and the JumboTron, for a small additional fee. Our guests are still commenting on having our wedding at such a unique and fun venue. Lauren is the best! She will walk you through every step of planning your event! We would not have changed anything about our experience. Everything was absolutely perfect!

Our coordinator Liz was amazing! She took every idea I had and made it a dream come true! We got married on the field, had a great cocktail hour in the natty boy garden then the reception in the club level! Everything went smoothly, everyone was so accommodating and friendly. The food was AMAZING! If I were to do it all over again I would pick this venue over and over again!

My wedding reception at Ripken Stadium was great. Karen Zoda, my event coordinator, worked with me to get the timing right, food choices (even had a tasting!), drinks, etc. When we wanted to push the reception back a half hour, she worked with us even though there was another event happening in the adjoining room.

Ripken is a great place to have a celebration like a wedding reception. The atmosphere is unique and there are multiple places that you can have your reception (ours was in one of the boxes - first base side). There was even a rec baseball game going on when we got there, which kind of gave it a different feel (the reception was 3:30 in the afternoon).

Karen was there for the whole event to make sure everything went off without a hitch, and even packed up all the gifts, cards, pictures, cake utensils, etc for us to just put in the car at the end of the evening.

Everyone had a great time and said it was one of the better wedding receptions they had been to because they had so much fun...what better place to have fun than a baseball stadium???

Our wedding at Ripken Stadium was absolutely perfect. We were able to be married on the field at home plate (my husband's dream) while all of our guests sat in the stands. All of our guests commented on how unique and beautiful the venue was. The reception area, which is the club level inside, is huge. It easily accommodated our 140 guests, dance, floor, cocktail hour, photobooth, cornhole, and candy buffet! Everyone had an amazing time.

The reason our wedding was truly amazing though was the event coordinator, Liz. She was so helpful, cheerful, and accommodating. They had just recently started a contract with a new caterer and it was rough to work with them. Liz stepped in and acted as the middle man and made sure everything went smoothly and with as little headache as possible. She met with us various times and was always available via phone or email. The night before the wedding she helped us set everything up and made sure everything was perfect. The day of the wedding she came in extra early so we could get ready there and continued to check on us and make sure we were okay. She made sure the ceremony and reception went off without a hitch. She was really, really amazing.

If you are looking for a fun, unique venue with an amazing coordinator, Ripken Stadium is an excellent choice!
