AMAZING!! I'm so happy we made the decision to have our reception at Christos Union Depot Place. Everything that Georgia and her team promised - they delivered and then more! We had such an amazing day - and the Christos team was so organized and professional - the food was fabulous, dessert was delicious, the venue was gorgeous, and the service was spectacular.

Georgia is extremely organized and really simplified the planning process (which can be so overwhelming for busy brides and grooms). If you complete her list of "to-do's," it's a no-fail recipe for an incredibly prompt, fun, and beautiful event. All of my guests were so impressed with the staff as were my husband and I. They helped our vendors stay on schedule so their wasn't a dull moment the entire night. Additionally - the extra help to pack and load the cars at the end of the evening was such a blessing and time saver for my family.

You promised a fantastic reception - and truly you helped us achieve just that! Thank you for such a beautiful evening - we along with our guests had such a great time - I can't tell you the number of people that told us this was the best reception they've been to! I know I'm biased because it was my own wedding - but seriously - BEST WEDDING EVER!! :) Much love to you and your team, Georgia!!!

I can't say enough how WONDERFUL Christo's Union Depot was for our wedding reception. The space itself is just beautiful. Celebrating in such a classy looking space takes all of the stress off decorations. We got compliments all night that it was one of the prettiest venues people had been to for a wedding. The food was incredible. We still get compliments on how great everything tasted, how fast it was served and that it was hot (not common for wedding food). I cannot say enough about the staff at Christo's. Everyone was so pleasant to work with and just overall great at their jobs. The bartender was friendly, fast and made a mean captain diet!

And I don't even know where to start with Georgia -SHE IS THE BEST!!! She is the most organized person I have ever met. She assured us that our day would be flawless due to all of the preparation and she was right. She made sure that we talked about every aspect of our night and if there was something she recommended that we questioned, she made sure to explain it to us - every recommendation she gave we went with and I am SO glad we did! She has been there done that and knows how this stuff works. Every venue should be so lucky to have someone half as good at their job as Georgia.

I would recommend Christo's Union Depot to ANYONE!!!

my wife and I had our reception at Christos. Every single thing about our day exceeded all expectations we had. Georgia is amazing and made everything about our day seem effortless. We arrived at our reception and did nothing but enjoy ourselves. The entire night unfolded, everything was set up, packed up and tore down and truthfully, neither my wife nor I even noticed it had happened or been taken care of. We had one job - to enjoy our night, and Georgia and the staff at Christos made sure that that was accomplished. Countless guests told us the appetizer and dessert buffet was not only the best wedding food they had ever had, but the best food - period. Over a month later we are still get compliments from our guests. It was our goal to give our family and friends and night they would never forget, and with the help of Georgia and the Christos staff - that mission was 100% accomplished. Best.Event.Ever.

Christos absolutely surpassed my wildest hopes for what my wedding could be. Every aspect of the reception was absolutely amazing.

First, the venue itself. Absolutely gorgeous, beautiful open space that almost decorates itself. Your traditional wedding decor just complements the natural beauty of the space. As the space is technically open to the public, I wondered what that would be like night of but you literally have NO idea that you aren't in a 100% private room. There is very little foot traffic through the Depot and between the set up and the presence of St. Paul police, just in case, you literally are 100% unaware of anyone but your party guests.

Second - the team. Georgia and the rest of the Christos team are truly amazing. Not only does Georgia help you prepare for every little thing, but she makes sure that the entire evening runs so well. The Christos team is SUPER friendly, hard working and delivered a great experience. No lines at the bar, no food served too late, everything where you need it when you need it. Perfect!

Third - the food! Wedding food doesn't tend to be the best but this food is delicious. As the bride, I had heard that you don't tend to have enough time to eat your for but I made sure that I had time and I ate every bite. Many of my guests raved about how much they liked the food. Try the Milopitas desert, you won't be disappointed!

I can't recommend this space and this team enough. If I could do it all over again, I would make the same choice to hold my wedding here in a second! Perfection!

Christos Union Depot Place was the absolute perfect place for our wedding reception! Georgia Meyers, the event coordinator for Christos was absolutely wonderful to work with, she really knows what she is talking about and it's obvious she has been in event planning for quite some time. Everything about the reception far surpassed our wildest dreams! The staff was wonderful and did such a great job of setting the reception up for us, the service was impeccable and we are still hearing rave reviews on the food! Job well done Team Christos!
We would highly recommend everyone to have their reception at this venue. You won't have a thing to worry about with Georgia and her staff handling the event for you!
Elliott Kroeker/ Greg Johnson, the two happy grooms!

Georgia and the staff of Christos are amazing! All of our guests are still talking about the gorgeous space, well-run event, wonderful food (especially the salmon!!!!) and great music (thanks to Adagio). Allison and Andrew were so thrilled. I've been grinning all week because of how well everything went!!! Both Allison & her brother Tom, one of the groomsmen, have shared stories on how you shepherded them through the event so perfectly - tieing up Allison's dress when the bustle failed, helping the bridal party wait for the bride & groom to arrive from their surprise carriage ride and coordinating the special entrance for the bride and groom!

The cutest story is about my niece, Scarlett, the flower girl, barely reaching to top of the bar to get many refill on her Shirley Temple. Sounds like she may have been over-served. ;-)

The public space should be of no concern to folks. A few guests told stories of watching the security officers direct folks around the event. I witnessed one. No big deal. Our comment to guests was ....behave or you're on the 11:30 Amtrak to Fargo!!! ;-)

I cannot say enough amazing things about this wonderful venue! This venue offers everything you could ever want! It is BEAUTIFUL, classy and elegant! You can keep it simple, as we did, with minimal extra decorations, and its timeless architechture is PERFECT! Or, if you prefer drama and extravagance, this venue can do that too! I think that is one of the best parts of this venue, it can meet anyone's needs!

This is accomplished by the beauty of the venue, but more so, by the amazing work of Georgia Meyers, the wedding coordinator there. She is amazing! She listens to what you want and makes it work! We wanted to keep a lot of stuff pretty simple (DIY flowers and centerpieces, no uplighting, no grand march, etc.) and I that having a wedding coordinator might try to "up-sell" us or talk us into things we didn't really want. But Georgia is the most wonderful listener, who really wants your wedding to be exactly that... YOUR wedding! She helped us keep the wedding about us and our guests (150). We wanted everyone to just have a great time! She and her staff helped us set up games (foos ball, ladderball, bean bags), helped us incoorporate unique aspects of us into the party and went above and beyond for everything! I never worried about one thing the whole night, Georgia was on top of everything!

The food and quality of service was unlike any wedding or event I have been to! I can't tell you how many people commented on how great the food was! Bar service was fast and made great drinks, AND the bar is the old ticket counter for the train station! Beautiful!

I cannot say enough about this wonderful place, our wedding day was the best day of my life! You cannot go wrong with this amazing place!

Wow!!! Our wedding was amazing and we couldn't ask for a better venue/coordinator than the Union Depot/Georgia. Do yourself a favor and setup a time with her if you're looking at places for your reception. Even if you don't choose to have your reception there, the wisdom she extends to you surrounding the big day is well worth your time. After this first visit, do yourself even a bigger favor and make your wedding day as easy as possible. Call Georgia and book your event asap. The building is simply top notch, the staff is kind and attentive, you'll get compliments about the food days for days after, and you'll have Georgia quarterbacking the best day of your life.
