ARAMARK @ M&T Bank Stadium
Maggie rocks!! My wedding was amazing!!
every detail, every staff member, everything was perfect! not a single mistep or mis hap, my family and friends are still talking about how wonderful everything was!
We worked with Carly who was beyond helpful through the whole process. She was always quick to respond and I never felt like I couldn't shoot her an email (or multiple emails) to get any and all questions I had answered. The day of the wedding went better than I could ever have imagined, Carly and her staff were on top of things and made sure we didn't have to worry about anything but having fun and enjoying our time with our guests!
After looking at several venues for my wedding, I looked up M&T Bank Stadium and called their event planning team through Aramark. I spoke to a woman named Maggie and she took down my information and immediately sent me an email with their pricing and availability. After speaking with my fiance and mother, we set up a time to meet with Maggie and look at the space in the stadium. Since the stadium is so large, they can host several events at one time and we looked at the club level area that would accommodate our 100 guests. After our initial meeting with Maggie, we decided this is the place that we wanted to have our reception. We would have access to the field for pictures, to the seats during cocktail hour and the reception, and the tables would look lovely once we had our tablecloths and centerpieces set up. Maggie was very nice and professional and we began emailing back and forth with her about anything and everything. No matter how silly (or repetitive) our questions were, she answered them and even gave suggestions and referred us to a couple of vendors. We already had the cake ordered, the photographer and the florist lined up, but we were still in need of a DJ. Maggie suggested their in house DJ, C&J Entertainment, and we couldn't have been happier.
My parents and fiance and I looked over the reception menus and decided on a seated dinner with a choice of steak or chicken. Aramark also does buffet style, but we wanted the reception to be more formal. We weren't sure of which appetizers we wanted for cocktail hour, so we chose three and then decided on our final selection at the tasting. When we met with Maggie for the food tasting, we went to one of the suites and there was a table decorated with a nice table cloth, plates, silverware and drink ware like it would be on the night of the reception. Another table was nicely lined with soda and water and we were served each appetizer and dish by the head chef and waitress. Everyone was so professional and the food was delicious. We tried the mini spring rolls, antipasto croustade and mini crab cakes. We decided on the spring rolls and mini crab cakes in addition to a waterfall display of cheese and veggies for the cocktail hour. Next we tried two salads: mixed field greens and a grilled romaine salad. We decided on the latter because the mixed field greens was so ordinary. Lastly, we tried our two main courses. The steak was served with French green beans and risotto (SOOO GOOD) and the chicken was served with a sweet potato puree and baby carrots. Both dishes were delicious and I had a hard time deciding what I wanted the night of the reception.
The last time we met with Maggie was a few days before the wedding. We dropped off everything that she needed for the reception: tablecloths (they can order them or you can provide your own, but we found it cheaper to buy our own), bowls and fake flower petals for the centerpieces, cake topper and serving set for the cake, name cards and seating chart, a frame that we wanted signed, gift envelope box and tea light candles. We told Maggie exactly where we wanted everything set up, how we wanted the table cloths and centerpieces arranged and which tables we wanted next to each other. She drew a layout and told us not to worry and that everything was under control.
The day of the wedding had finally arrived! The ceremony at the church went off without a hitch and we arrived at the stadium a bit late (limo problem, do not use Z Best) but as soon as the wedding party got there, Maggie had some appetizers waiting for us and then took us onto the field for pictures. Since we were so late and had to rush, Maggie let us know that we were more than welcome to take more pictures if we wanted to come back another day. She then escorted us up to our hall and then we got ready to be introduced by the DJ. The rest of the night was a blur, but after the wedding we kept getting so many compliments on how good the food was, how nice the reception was and what a great time everyone had.
Maggie and the team at Aramark are truly amazing and made our night one that we will never forget! I definitely recommend using them for...
I worked with Carly Mistovich as my venue coordinator. She was absolutely fantastic. She was a joy to work with. She responded to all my emails quickly and provided me with all the information that I could possibly need. The venue is perfect for any type of wedding either formal, casual or somewhere in between. Every request I made they fulfilled it and more. I am so happy I used M&T Bank for my wedding venue, it made for a fun and unique wedding experience.
I couldn't have asked for a more PERFECT wedding day. Everyone at M and T bank stadium and Aramark(especially Bethany Colt Krulis) were more than helpful. Bethany helped us every step of the way to make everything possible. Everything we wanted was made possible. U2 was performing at the stadium 3 days before our wedding. We were so worried that everything wouldn't be cleaned up in time, but we were assured that the stadium would be back to normal the day before our wedding. We were not let down! It was as if U2 had never even been there!
All of our guests had an amazing time. Many of them have told us it was the best wedding food they had ever had and I completely agree!
It was definitely a day that no one will ever forget!
Thanks M and T and Aramark for making our day the best day of our lives!!!
Carly Mistovich was the best person for the job I could have ever asked for. She answered any and all questions I had in a very timely manner. The whole staff on the night of my wedding was incredibly helpful and fast. Everyone who attended our wedding has told us that our wedding was the best they had ever been to.
Amazing service and professionalism. I felt so taken care of prior to and during my event.
M&T Bank Stadium was a fun choice for a wedding venue. I thought that if my guests were going to travel, it might as well be to an exciting place.
The venue is free to rent if you spend more than $12,000 with their caterer, Aramark. If you don't reach $12k, it costs $2,200 to rent. You are required to use Aramark, but it was ok with me because their food was absolutely delicious and for a very very reasonable price!
I was happy with having my wedding there because they allowed the wedding party to go down to the field for pictures. I was also extremely pleased with the service and waitstaff during the reception. For example, I had one guest tell me that her waitress offered her a new plate of food when the waitress saw that my guest had let her dinner go cold. (My guest brought a 3 month old with her, and she hadn't gotten around to eating yet!)
M&T did everything that I requested of them, and their day-of coordination was priceless. Because of them, I did not even need a wedding coordinator. They really made me feel like a princess, and I did not have an ounce of worry in me that day.
This unique venue has so much to offer -- the history of a century-old landmark…the urban energy of downtown Baltimore...and all the allure of the stadium , and the game itself. Our great variety of event spaces, diverse and delicious menu
options, and outstanding commitment to service all will help assure that your event is truly special.
M&T Bank Stadium is about so much more than football! We hope you and your group will come experience this amazing facility, and the warm hospitality of the ARAMARK team.
