This historic venue is breathtaking! At our first visit we knew that we wanted to have the wedding there!Sent on 07/03/2019
Susan welcomed us, showed us around and was just so exciting to talk to. We loved the idea of the "green" room for the bridal party etc to use during the day of the wedding and we really got some beautiful extra pictures in there.
Speaking of photography, the pictures are amazing within that backdrop of the train station! We rented the smaller section called the head house (130 guest). Its gorgeous with the arched windows and brick etc. The Shed portion was also opened so we had such a beautiful view of the entire place.
The staff was amazing and our wedding planner Amy Marie Events used perfect decor, flowers, and vision for the feel we wanted in the space.
It was elegant, organic, and magical!
Thanks to Susan and her entire staff for making our wedding experience beautifully memorable!

Amazing Wedding Venue
I cannot rave about this venue enough. Main Street Station was a complete dream venue for our December wedding. Our coordinator provided by Main Street, Susan Kennedy, was absolutely the best. She was professional and prompt, but always made us feel special. Every hiccup before and during the wedding, she handled with ease. Susan was patient and kind, giving us many tours throughout the process. She is extremely knowledgable about the history of Main Street and remains proud of its publicity. I would recommend this venue to any couple seeking a spectacular and chic weddingSent on 01/14/2019

We wanted to have a very "Richmond-y" vibe to our wedding and this was the perfect place. I worked with Susan as a point of contact. She was lovely. The new shed is such a great addition and downstairs is perfect for cocktail hour! I did not use the bridal suite, but my caterer did take advantage of the kitchen. We loved having our wedding here!!!Sent on 01/13/2018

Events in this Downtown RVA historical landmark are always a breeze. They have a great layout for ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. They are an easy distance away from many other landmarks when it's time to take photos. If you like trains, rich history, and Richmond in general, this very well may be your place!
