Homage to Union Station
Sooooo, I found out today that the venue where I had my wedding reception is closing. I cannot tell you how saddened I am by this news! The venue is just absolutely breathtaking, and the food is out of this world! Union Station is a historic train station, that was restored about 5+ years ago after being closed and boarded up for many, many years. The station is now again a functioning transportation hub and has been restored to its original beauty and glory. A restaurant was put in, serving delicious dinners and desserts, and the restaurant catered weddings that were held in the Grande Hall. The restaurant is closing, while the train station will remain open. So, the news is not totally bad, as a bride-to-be could still rent the hall from the town and bring in their own caterer, etc.
But, as this place will forever be such an important part of my life, as it is where I married my husband (well, not technically since the ceremony was not there, but you get my drift), I am very sad to see it close, and just devastated for all 2008 brides who will no longer have a caterer for their event. Cara, from Cara’s Cravings, is getting married there this October, and I wish her the best of luck…I am sure, though, that the restaurant (who is catering events through the end of ’07) will uphold their standards of excellence and give her the most perfect day!
