    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.

The Hippodrome space is so unique! Being a theatre, there are so many visual opportunities that no other venue can offer and they have a good-sized ballroom as well. Kim Dorgan, their event manager is terrific! I highly recommend the Hippodrome for your next "production".
