Luxury Summer Wedding Venue in the Heart of Nashville: Tie the Knot at The Union Station Nashville Yards

The 1900-built Union Station originally served as a train terminal along the Louisville & Nashville Railroad, and was converted into an upscale boutique hotel in 1986. It remains one of the most spectacular Gilded Age-era architectural monuments in Music City.

The Union Station’s impressive Romanesque Revival style and soaring stature, coupled with the across-the-board comforts, amenities, and hospitality services befitting a luxury hotel, make it a singular wedding venue.

And, in fact, it’s been such a wedding venue for more than a century: Couples have been exchanging vows in The Union Station since the 1910s, long predating its transformation into a hotel.

The rich history, iconic structure, and prime perch right along, mean that a wedding at The Union Station Nashville Yards comes infused with a little something extra-special. And you can rest assured your wedding guests will be suitably wowed by the location!
