We could not have had a better experience with Columbia Station and Robert Ryan Catering. They took care of everything and at no time did we have to worry about any detail. The staff was incredibly friendly and diligent (even after having done 3 weddings before ours that weekend). They took special care to make sure we always had food and a drink, our bridal party was given drinks right after the ceremony and they kept the whole night on track while remaining flexible. Along with the great staff, the food was so incredible. You will not be disappointed by the food (get the ice cream sandwiches!!). Also, having everything included in the per person price was the best business model. You truly don't have to worry about anything and you're night will be perfect. I hope I get to go to a wedding here in the future, so I can experience it on the other side.

We had a really wonderful experience having our wedding at Columbia Station! Along the way, working with Madison was always really easy. She was so quick to respond to my many questions, professional, kind, and knowledgeable. If I ever needed anything, I felt free to ask and it was always taken care of right away. Their process and communication is very organized so I *felt* on track throughout the months leading up to the wedding, which anyone planning a wedding knows is such a good feeling! Our day-of contact Lisa was awesome. She was so down-to-earth and put us right at ease. Margie was assigned to take care of us and the wedding party throughout the evening, and she was also great! She kept everyone organized and happy, and was so sweet to us the whole time. Trusting the people who will run your wedding is so important, and the entire staff at Columbia Station was phenomenal! And Robert Ryan Catering! Our guests continue to shower us with rave reviews on the food, too! From the cocktail hour hors d'oeuvres, to the delicious meal, and the amazing Master's Baker cake, we've received compliments on every single dish - not kidding! Favorites were the Short Rib Rangoon at cocktail hour and the Sweet Potato Jalapeno Bisque which was our first course. Everyone was very happy with their entree! The beauty of the venue speaks for itself, and they did a great job incorporating the personal details we brought in to make the night special for us. We are so happy we went with Columbia Station for our wedding! They helped us make it a night we'll never forget!

Professional Network & Endorsements

Columbia Station is a beautiful venue with a great staff. I've photographed weddings there and have been very impressed with the venue.

I've been at the Columbia Station many times, and most recently, I officiated a New Year's Eve wedding. The venue is lovely with two large rooms, the banquet and the bar. The personal service is top-notch. The well appointed caboose is the perfect place for the bridal party to relax while waiting to walk down the aisle. Highly recommend!

The location was beautiful and would recommend you to all! It was a pleasure to work with you!

Robert Ryan Catering has been a hallmark in the business for the past 20+ years. Their reputation proceeds them and you will never have a bad dining experience whether it’s a party or special event they are presenting or a signature wedding event at one of their gorgeous properties. We love working with this caterer because of their professionalism and constant attention to detail.
