The Great Overland Station is the Union Pacific Depot that has been preserved and restored to it original look in 1927. The elegant former Union Pacific Station provides a beautiful setting with its soaring ceiling and intricate ornamentation and 3 large chandeliers. When on the balcony you can view the 50 state flags, large ceremonial flag on All Veterans Memorial and the city skyline. Read less

This is an absolutely beautiful site to host your wedding reception. However, we ran into a few troublesome issues. The temperature in the room was so warm that our cake had a slight lean and our 300+ guests were uncomfortable. They refused to turn down the thermostat which was unacceptable, especially considering how much we paid as we rented out all three areas. Another concern was we had at least 3 different contacts over the planning of the event due to turnover. Luckily, our vendors had worked at this site numerous times and we had no other issues. In the end, we wouldn't have booked another venue because it looked great in our pictures and video, but they could be easier to work with.

Beautiful site for a reception. No real problems here. Sometimes they were a little hard to get a hold of because they have very limited operating hours. But that is really the only complaint.

Beautiful place to have the ceremony and reception. We were looking for a place other than a church to hold the ceremony. This venue had a seperate room to do the ceremony in, so setting up for the reception was already done. Very convenient so that our out-of-town guest did not have to drive to two different venues. We weren't allowed to bring in a dance floor (to cover uneven tiles) but no one broke an ankle dancing; so that turned out okay. We weren't allowed to have red liquids either (no red wine, cranberry juice, etc) because of the possibility of staining the floor. But other than that, it was great. We were allowed to choose our own caterer and bring our own bar/liquor. Very beautiful place. It wasn't too far from the hotel, but it wasn't in the best of neighborhoods.

The Overland Station is gorgeous, especially at Christmas time. Doesn't take much to decorate that time of year. They don't let you in to decorate until 3pm on the day of the wedding. It worked well for us because we had a wedding planner who could decorate for us. Great space for a big wedding in Topeka.
