Still looking for a venue? You may say "I Do" to Memorial Station in Belton, MO
Located in the heart of Belton, MO, Memorial Station has a rustic, yet modern charm that should really be considered in your search for your wedding day venue. In July, I photographed a wedding at this venue and was impressed with how versatile the space was, both inside and out. With a exposed wood inside, rolling garage style doors to incorporate the outdoors with the indoors, and the beautiful scenery when you step out on to the patio, this venue has everything you need to make your day even more special.
I had a chance to talk a little with Nikki Worstell, Event Coordinator at the venue and she gave me a glance at what makes Memorial Station so unique.
