Wedding Express: Gettysburg Lincoln Railroad Station Ceremonies – Updated November 2019

Published June 22, 2017

Classic Gettysburg Train Station Wedding

November 2019 – Please note that this facility will be undergoing renovations. As a result, ceremonies and events are not being booked for the Gettysburg Railroad Station at this time.

If you spend any time looking at wedding magazines, you’ll see they’re full of unique, outdoor venues for ceremonies in every conceivable place from beaches to lakesides, gardens to bridges, barns, backyards, and pergolas. But have you ever considered the drawbacks? No shade, chance of rain, no electricity for ceremony music, renting the extra chairs… there is so much to consider.

Here at the Gettysburg Hotel, we’ve got you covered with a unique outdoor venue that releases you from all the worry and stress. Enjoy a ceremony in downtown Gettysburg at the historic Gettysburg Lincoln Railroad Station, just two doors away from the Gettysburg Hotel. Guests will be welcomed into the gated pavilion and can find a perfect seat to experience your wedding day I Do’s.

The Pavilion is covered, which offers shade for your guests and protects them from any chance of showers. And when you rent the pavilion through the Gettysburg Foundation, your rental covers the use of our banquet chairs when you book your reception at the Gettysburg Hotel! It’s also ideal for your DJ or other live entertainment because there is electricity available at no extra fee.

The preferred DJs, photographers and florists of the Gettysburg Hotel have extensive experience in this space and know how to make it magical. And don’t worry about accidentally seeing your almost-spouse. Our attentive wedding coordinator will make sure you stay separate until the moment you walk down the aisle.

After the ceremony, we will usher your guests back to the Gettysburg Hotel via a tree lined path so they can enjoy your cocktail hour while you stay and have your first photos taken as newlyweds!

In case you’re choosing Gettysburg for the historical aspect, this train station is where Abraham Lincoln arrived when he gave the Gettysburg Address. Join President Lincoln in making your mark in history at this gorgeous and one of a kind venue!
