To begin with the venue... Everything was clean and beautiful for every appointment I attended and of course for my big day. Columbia Station has their own Chiavari chairs, which are gorgeous, and all the carpeting and curtains were neutral so it could go with any color scheme. The rooms and bathrooms were all wonderful, but the best part of this venue is the refurbished train car in the garden - I used this as my bridal suite. The garden was also gorgeous in June and I was thankful the weather held up for an outdoor ceremony. However, in case it did rain Robert Ryan Catering was prepared with a backup plan.
Which brings me to my next topic. Robert Ryan Catering is by far the best I have experienced in the industry. They are attentive, considerate and most important fair! So many vendors and venue only see the dollar signs in the sale, but Robert Ryan worked with me to ensure everything was to my satisfaction and that I was getting the wedding of my dreams within my budget. The best was the event manager I was assigned the day of the wedding. She ensured everything ran smoothly and made sure my husband and I were happy. You DO NOT get this at many venues and it is the first thing I would recommend to any bride. I didn't have to worry about my time line or the comfort of my guests. My event manager took care of it all.
To conclude, the food prepared and served by Robert Ryan catering was delicious and beautiful. It didn't taste like hotel food or food prepared in mas quantities. Each plate was as great as the next and my guests were all more than satisfied.
