Ingrid and Coleman’s Beautiful Hippodrome Theatre Wedding

It was a beautiful day in Baltimore, filled with blue skies and summer sunshine. Every detail had been rehearsed, and now it was time for Ingrid and Coleman’s premiere as husband and wife! This wedding was especially meaningful to me as Cole is my husband Matt’s cousin! The happy couple starred in the performance of their lives at the gorgeous Hippodrome Theatre in Baltimore!

The Heart of the Hippodrome

Not only is the Hippodrome Theatre a gorgeously unique wedding venue, it is also at the heart of both Ingrid and Cole’s families! Ingrid’s grandmother has been attending shows at the Hippodrome for decades, and some of Ingrid’s fondest memories are attending performances with her grandmother and family. The Hippodrome is also very special to Cole: his grandmother performed at the theatre! In 2000, Cole’s father and his company renovated the Hippodrome, ensuring its continued legacy. This theatrically-inspired couple were so thrilled to be married in such a beautiful theatre that holds immense meaning for both of their families!

Setting the Stage

Ingrid and her cast of bridesmaids got ready backstage in the theatre’s dressing room, excitedly preparing for Ingrid and Cole’s moment in the spotlight. The energy filling the theatre was similar to the anticipation before a show’s opening night! I loved the posters and playbills Ingrid and Cole had created to celebrate their theatre wedding! The marquee even announced their wedding as that day’s “show”! The Hippodrome was beautiful, inside and out, and it really was the perfect backdrop for Ingrid and Cole’s wedding.

Show-Stopping First Look

I loved Ingrid and Cole’s first look in the theatre box! There was an overture of emotion and tears from both sides, and the grandeur of it all had me wiping tears too!  Up in a private box, Ingrid and Cole were truly the stars of their own love story. Joy filled the whole theatre as they shared sweet moments together before their theatre wedding ceremony!

Tony-Worthy Wedding Ceremony

After their first look, it was time for Ingrid and Cole to say “I do”! Ingrid’s father escorted her down the aisle towards Cole, his eyes shining and full of love. Ingrid and Cole clasped hands and made their way to center stage. Their ceremony was so special, with moving vows and a beautiful song preformed by Cole’s mom. Following their first kiss as husband and wife, Cole and Ingrid exited the stage to a standing ovation from their loved ones.

Thrilling Theatre Wedding Reception

Ingrid and Cole’s theatre wedding reception took place right on the Hippodrome’s stage! Guests got to dine onstage and feel like stars themselves. The gold and grey color scheme dazzled and perfectly complimented the beauty of the Hippodrome. The band had everyone dancing under the bright stage lights! Not to be upstaged, Cole got up and sang a song with his band, the Greasy Hands, during the reception! They put on an amazing performance and I loved watching Ingrid dance along in the first row!
