Perfect wedding venue!

Union Depot saved our wedding day!

When April flooding along the Mississippi River closed our planned dream venue of Harriet Island Pavilion, the staff there graciously pointed us in the direction of Union Depot. We made a call to Dawn and met with her, Grace, and Cassie - and with their help were able to reconfigure our wedding in less than a month!

We opted to have all of our wedding events - ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception - in the Waiting Room at Union Depot (which not only simplified the planning process and made it easier for our guests to go from one event to the next but also helped us stay within our budget.) Even though our total guest count was on the smaller side (~ 118), they were able to split the large room into different sections using black curtains so the space never felt empty. The historic building itself, with cream brick, high ceilings, and beautiful architecture, fit perfectly with our plan of minimalistic decor.

Our guests had plenty of space both at their tables and on the dance floor, were able to park in nearby lots (and didn't have to pay themselves since we were able to purchase and distribute parking vouchers through the Depot), and didn't have to travel far from hotels in downtown St. Paul (we stayed at Hotel 340 and had a great experience). Union Depot even had a ping pong table we were able to use for the reception, which was a hit!

All in all, we had a GREAT experience with Union Depot and are so grateful for all of the help they provided to make our wedding day as amazing as it was. Dawn, Grace, and Cassie were all top-notch in their customer service, promptness, thoroughness, and friendliness. 10/10 recommend this venue for those looking for a Twin Cities venue!

An excellent location for bringing our unique reception to life.

Our wedding reception was held in the large waiting room space (which is near where departures and arrivals for the occasional train come through). For the crazy low price point we had a very personalized and easy experience—the coordinator gave us a tour of the space, discussed options regarding seating and layout (including some massive curtains that they set up to keep the area private from the public, which was included), and it was just a very seamless experience. We ended up hosting an open-concept carnival-themed reception (candy bar, carnival snacks and desserts, face painter we hired on Craigslist, a photo booth, Hondo the Magician who is a phenomenal performer local to the Twin Cities, etc.) with approximately 150ish people, which the space easily accommodated and then some (I may even recommend that you only use a smaller section of the space if you have a smaller guest list). Our DJ was able to create a really nice dance area since the floors are naturally good for that, and his lights were able to create a cool atmosphere on the floors, walls and even up to the ceiling. We kept the party going until midnight and everyone had a blast. Would definitely recommend this event space for pretty much anyone as it can be so easily molded to fit your vision and wedding size.
