    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 wedding

    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!!!

    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!
