We absolutely loved having our elopement ceremony at the train station. Tracy was our point of contact and she was absolutely wonderful! We arranged everything from TN. Tracy checked in with us several times leading up to the ceremony and was there the entire time the day of our ceremony! Highly recommend this venue! It's a hidden gem in Gettysburg

I can not recommend this venue enough for a wedding! The Visitor Center and the surrounding park made for a unforgettable backdrop for our daughter's wedding. The town of Gettysburg and tours, provided more than enough for our guest to do before the wedding. Debbie Joyner was our event planner. Truly, Debbie is incredible and the phenomenal success of our wedding was because of her expertise and efforts! Suzanne Curtain was our representative from Aramark catering. They worked beautifully together and brought a team effort to honor every request and changes to those requests throughout the months of planning. We live in Baltimore and I never once felt the distance to be a problem. They cared about our daughter's big day as much as we did. Our flowers came from The Flower Boutique in Gettysburg. Mary Beth, from the flower shop, was incredibly accommodating. Again, Debbie and Mary Beth worked as a team, making the whole experience stress free. I wanted the fireplace mantle to be filled with candles, flowers and greens. Together, they made it absolutely perfect. Any request was met with enthusiasm and honesty about what would work and what wouldn't. Our guests loved the food, the atmosphere, and the fact that we were using the entire Visitor Center throughout the evening. Museum areas included! Many commented on how they felt very 'taken care of' by the entire staff that night. The Sevens Salon in Gettysburg was where the bride maids spent their day getting make-up done flawlessly by Talitha Collado and perfectly styled hair by the talented staff. The salon allowed us to bring in a tasty catered lunch from the restaurant Food 101, right down the street. and a cooler of water & mimosas! I would highly recommend the Visitor Center and the other services I have mentioned for your wedding without reservation!

Working with Debbie and the staff st the GNMP Museum & Visitor Center for our reception was wonderful! We had already lost two venues due to poor communication by the time we found Debbie and she just made everything easy for us. The reception was absolutely beautiful and having after hours access to the museum during the reception was something our guests really enjoyed. Thank you so much!
