We were between two venues for our Oct 2016 wedding. To date, we couldn't be any happier that we chose Columbia Station (and they gave us the best value! Especially for the area). They (Robert Ryan Catering and Amanda) have been absolutely fantastic with accommodating all of our requests to date. Amanda has been so responsive and supportive through all of my questions. We cannot thank them enough.
Post Wedding: Robert Ryan staff really knows what they're doing! We got so many compliments on our food and how beautiful the venue was!

I can't say enough kind words about Columbia Station. I had my wedding there last month, and they are WONDERFUL! We worked with Amanda, the Event Manager. She was responsive, organized, super sweet, and just plain awesome! She helped me confirm decisions that I was on the fence about, and always reassured me that I was on the right track and not to stress. Our Day-of-Coordinator, Luke, was equally awesome! It normally takes me awhile to warm up to new people, but Luke immediately made me feel at ease. He too was organized and very accommodating! The entire staff did such a great job making my vision come true! Everyone who helped out was so polite and professional!
We looked at 5 venues, and I'm sooo happy that we decided on Columbia Station - I would do it all over again with them. It's gorgeous and has the best staff. I highly recommend!

If you are looking for a unique wedding venue with a beautiful ceremony area and wonderful staff this is the place. Amanda was amazing to work with coming up with our plan for the venue space. She was very accommodating and easy work with. Lisa, our day-off coordinator, got everything right and made sure we were satisfied. We were assigned a staff member, Meghan, who took care of us the whole night and even kept me calm prior to walking down the aisle. Robert Ryan catering has amazing food with infinite choices and my guests couldn't have been happier. They work with the Master's Baker who provided the best tasting wedding cake I have ever had!. Overall I couldn't have asked for a better experience with better people.

Columbia station did an incredible job for our ceremony snd reception. We were blown away by all the little details that they add to everything to complete the theme of our wedding. The staff went above and beyond to make sure we got the wedding we dreamed about. We had no complaints about anything, it was simply perfect. The price was very reasonable and affordable. I would highly recommend Columbia Station & Robert Ryan Catering to anyone who is looking to get married.

We fell in love with the Columbia Station from the first visit with our daughter and future son-in-law. The setting is quaint with so much character and the grounds are meticulously landscaped. Amanda, the Event Planner for Corinne and James was as warm, personable and professional as she could possibly be. She was so helpful in the way that she explained everything and because of that we really did not have many questions throughout the entire planning process. She left us feeling so prepared for the "big day." The few questions that we did have were always answered immediately. She was a joy to work with and made the experience so much fun. Luke was the Day of Supervisor for Corinne and James. We met with him and Amanda at the Final Meeting to go over all of the details. As soon as we met, I knew the bride and groom were going to be well taken care of and the day was going to run smoothly. Luke was so friendly and had such a calm demeanor. He told us the day would be perfect and it absolutely was! Luke & staff made sure Corinne & James had the perfect wedding day. Everything was set exactly how the bride and groom requested. Someone was always right there when you needed them. They went about their job so discreetly yet were always there to assist if need be. Margie took care of the bridal party before and after the ceremony in the Caboose Bridal Suite and during the Reception. She was such a sweetheart and she and Luke paid so much attention to little details that just made all of us feel so taken care of & at home. I am sorry I am unable to mention every staff member by name but a round of applause goes to each and everyone. They were all wonderful and did an amazing job! The food was out of this world, no matter what the selection it was all delicious! I could go on and on and still not say enough good things about our entire experience. Our deepest thanks to all of you for giving our daughter and new son a beautiful wedding day!

My husband and I are so incredibly fortunate to not only find a venue that is so beautiful and unique, but to find a place where the hospitality and service was unlike anything we could ever imagine! We worked with Amanda from the very beginning to the end! She was so patient (with my million and one questions!), pleasant, and helpful every step of the way! We had quite a few guests who had allergies, and Columbia Station catered to them as if it was their own family. They really cared, which meant a lot. My husband and I heard of all of the stories from friends and family about their personal experience at their wedding and how they NEVER got to eat, and I could cry thinking about that! My husband and I are 100% Italian so you better believe food was probably the most important part! The staff made sure that we ate plenty. Margie gave us a huge plate of appetizers as I got my dress bustled, and even made sure we had another round hor d'oevres sitting at our sweetheart table once the cocktail hour was over (seriously, how much better can they get?!) During pictures, she made sure we had a cocktail if me or the bridal party wanted one, especially during the reception! They were there when we wanted them, and gave us enough space too when my husband and I wanted that alone time! We ate so much that we didn't even have room for our entree! It was a dream come true ha! The food was mouth watering good, and I wish I could just go back for dinner all over again! Michelle was our event coordinator the day of and she made sure that everyone was set up the way we had envisioned and she did that and more! I literally could go on and on about how amazing the entire team was for the day of our wedding! I highly recommend Columbia Station to everyone! They made our wedding day so perfect!!! We are SO happy with how everything turned out!! THANK YOU!!! -Chris and Gina

I cannot say enough good things about our experience with The Columbia Station and Robert Ryan Catering. Our wedding day couldn't have gone any smoother and more perfect. Prior to the wedding, Amanda was my go-to girl and was just a pleasure to work with. She took care of all my little worries and questions and really made the entire wedding planning process seamless for me. The rehearsal and wedding day, Luke and Margie were AMAZING. Luke made sure that everything ran smoothly and everything happened when it was supposed to. He was great and, to this day, I still think how great it was to not have to worry about anything the day of. Margie was our personal waitress all night and made sure that I never had an empty glass of wine - my kinda girl. She was the sweetest lady, you could tell she really enjoyed her job and I loved that. It's been almost a month since our wedding and we STILL have people commenting on how professional, elegant and fun our wedding was. Everyone especially loved the food. We came to The Columbia Station because we liked the character and we booked it because of the food and presentation. Top-notch service, I really can't even begin to explain how perfect it all was. If you're thinking about getting a soup as your first course, definitely do it! The presentation is something people won't forget. I really could go on forever about how perfect our entire wedding experience and wedding day was but they won't give me enough room in this little box. You will not be disappointed by the service at The Columbia Station and Robert Ryan Catering.

Choosing Columbia Station as our reception venue was the best decision that we made. As an all inclusive venue, we felt that pricing was very reasonable for all the services we received. The food was amazing! The Braised Short Ribs were our favorite. Furthermore the service at Columbia Station was top notch. We knew that everything would be taken care of the day of our wedding from set up of decorations to the food and bar service because Columbia Station was so professional in all interactions prior to our wedding. We loved having a cocktail room that our guests could still access during the reception when the music was too loud for them. I was also impressed by the personal attention we got during the planning process as well. Robert Ryan gave the initial call to me after I filled out the contact me form on their website. He did the initial tour with my father and my husband and I. Betsy was always so responsive and knowledgeable as well. The only glitch we had was our dessert line got very long, I think because we had 4 different flavors of cake and they couldn't cut the cake fast enough. But overall we were very impressed. They cleaned up all of our decorations and packed them up so we just had to move them to the car afterward. The venue was beautiful and fit our personalities perfectly!
