Though this was not the venue my fiancé and I decided to book, it came in a super close second. Firstly, it was a really unique location, being an old train station. It had a mix of modern decor with some old fashioned feel. The bridal party suite is huge and there is even an upstairs loft area overlooking the main reception space that can be used for whatever you want! We met Lisa who was the nicest person ever! She was so enthusiastic and explained so much that we hardly had questions because she went over everything! She was easy to communicate with and if you’re looking for a unique venue, this is your spot.Sent on 12/14/2019

Marianne's wedding review
From our 1st visit until walking out the door after our daughters wedding, Lisa Gratzinger and her staff provided a level of attention and service that was truly exceptional! The venue is unique and was perfect for our daughter and all our guest. The food provided by Mario was excellent and we received many compliments about all of it from appetizers thru deserts. The level of service the staff provided was outstanding and again we received so many compliments from our guests about the attention they received from the entire staff.Sent on 12/21/2019
We would highly recommend Platform 30 as a wedding venue. You will be delighted and impressed from beginning to end.
Thanks again to Lisa and the entire staff for making our daughters wedding everything she dreamed of.

Platform Thirty Review
My husband and I hosted our wedding at Platform Thirty at Beat Street Station and it was a memorable and beautiful event. From the beginning we knew we were in good hands when we met Sales Manager, Lisa Webb, for a private showing of the space. Lisa is down to earth, professional and knowledgeable about the packages Platform Thirty has to offer. Once we agreed to book, Lisa gave us a list of suggested vendors and party enhancements which was spot-on and saved us the hassle of going through unnecessary research of our own.Sent on 12/31/2019
The space itself has an overall industrial design with a touch of Art Deco flair and the size was perfectly suited for our wedding party, which included 95 guests. We appreciated that Platform Thirty is setup for hosting only one event at a time and also this venue offers door to door valet service, with the cars driven to a secure off-site parking lot.
At this point we were then handed over to Lisa Gratzinger who handled the actual planning of our wedding and reception. Lisa is detail-oriented, accommodating and filled with creative ideas. She listened to what we wanted and communicated with her team all of the special touches my husband and I requested.
On the day of our wedding, Marc and Jeremiah went above and beyond to make sure everything ran as smooth as possible. Jeremiah did a great job executing our setup and Marc was the perfect on-site coordinator, with his good nature and know-how. He had everyone smiling and at the same time kept our event moving along in a comfortable manner.
These are the type of people you want to handle your special event and as a result our guests raved about the venue and service. Also the food* and drinks were outstanding! And it is for these reasons I recommend Platform Thirty at Beat Street Station.
*We booked with the suggested vendor, Catering by Mario’s, for whom I also wrote a review.
