A beautiful, historical space!
Station No. 2 is such a beautiful, unique space tucked away in downtown. We were married here on 10/18/20 with a reduced guest count due to the pandemic. Donna Wallin was so easy to work with and did everything to make sure we enjoyed our big day but still safe. This venue has been immaculately maintained to keep it's vintage charm, and the courtyard was the perfect garden space for our ceremony. The upstairs bridal suite was also very spacious and full of natural light, it was perfect for relaxing and getting ready the morning of. There is plenty of street parking as well as an available lot across the street for guests.Sent on 10/26/2020

Generous, professional, and honest owners- all in one. I can’t recommend this venue more.
We had a very interesting but possibly the most positive experience with this vendor due to covid 19. We booked the venue well in advance before the world turned upside down and we had to replan everything. There were also some ownership changes to the station. What I will say is that the new owners were phenomenal at converting our wedding to a small gathering of family. They also honored our deposit and offered a generous bar package to compensate for the massive changes- we are aware they didn’t have to do this and it speaks wonders for their character. I’ve never been so floored what I can only call the perfect combination of professionalism and generosity. The new ownership deserves nothing but success. Book the station for your smaller gatherings, I have no doubt you’ll have a great experience.Sent on 12/31/2020

Cute and Quaint place for a rehearsal or small wedding
We had our rehearsal dinner here and it was amazing! They have an outdoor area that we rehearsed at and then walked inside for our dinner. They were very compromising with us and easy to work with. We had a fiesta themed dinner and they let us have a pinata as well and use all the space that we wanted. The rental came with really nice tables and chairs and they provided the drinks and bar related glassware as well. I would definitely use this space again for any kind of special occasion space. Sarah and Olivia are the best to work with!!!Sent on 12/12/2018
