The Report: 

Built in 1903, Station 3 is a historical Houston landmark. Known as  “Stonewall,” it was one of Houston’s original fire stations. While it still features original brick, wood floors, concrete beams, and hand carved exterior stone work, much of the building underwent an extensive renovation to make it a modern wedding venue.

Woman Getting Married Says:

I really like the vibe of this wedding venue, and you CANNOT beat the downtown Houston location. I also love how much information they provide on their website. Take it from me…when a wedding venue is as transparent as possible about what they provide, they are definitely going to be easier to deal with than others.
