Richmond Wedding Wednesdays #7 – Main Street Station

Friday, May 16th, 2008


Main Street Station, downtown in Shockoe Bottom, is one of my very favorite buildings in Richmond. I-95 runs just beside the station (you can see the shadow of the highway in the picture above). I love to drive that part of the highway just so I can drive by. It looks like something out of a movie. Although the station was closed for 30+ years, it went through a renovation and re-opened in 2003. Amtrack trains picks up passengers at Main Street, which functions as a self-serve train station. You can also rent Main Street for events.

I LOVE the idea of blanketing the stairs leading into the station (see below) with tea lights. How beautiful is that image of the New York Public Library above? This wedding feels so modern and sophisticated. I hope you all enjoy it!
