Unforgettable venue

Gorgeous venue with wide open floors, stunning vaulted ceilings, an industrial kitchen, ample parking, and multiple rental options. Crystal, the venue manager, was highly flexible in our use of the venue, and worked with any unique requests we had. We are so glad we chose this venue.

Unique and beautiful venue!

From the second we saw the Shed we were blown away! We were very torn between having an indoor or outdoor reception and loved how the Shed allowed us to have the feel of an outdoor reception without the weather concerns that come with an outdoor venue! We wanted a unique wedding venue that we could customize to create our own day and Main Street was perfect for that, while also being a classic Richmond spot! Our guests were blown away by the venue and we couldn't have been happier with our choice! The only downside with the venue is that as the venue comes essentially empty, we had to hire all of the vendors to come with the venue which is a bit more work, but we loved how we were able to pick our favorites of the vendors and bring them all together rather than be stuck with what came with another venue. We'd definitely recommend a wedding planner to bring all of the details together - we used Elle Loren & Co and couldn't have been happier with them! Main Street was also very flexible in accommodating our schedules, with setup the day before our reception and allowing us to store personal items the day before and after the event.

Amazing Venue

I've been a guest twice now to events including a wedding at Main Street Station, and I am so impressed. The venue is enormous and can work for both huge crowds and intimate gatherings. Even without much decoration it is grand and beautiful, is ADA compliant, and has ample parking.
