Our Favorite Venues in St. Louis, Missouri

Choosing the perfect venue is one of the biggest moments in your engagement. This is where your perfect day will unfold. Everything has to be just right. That natural light has to fall in through the bay windows or the dance floor has to sit perfectly under a gorgeous custom light piece. Somethings that are less photographic but just as important: how many restrooms are there? Is there wheelchair access for your great grandma Betty?

It doesn't have to be so daunting if you know exactly what you want out of a venue before touring. Some things to think of are:

  • How many guests can they accommodate?
  • Do they have preferred vendors or can you hire outside of them?
  • What time does the rental begin and end?
  • Is there a Planner there that will help the day of or only up until?
  • Do they include a ceremony rehearsal the night before?
  • Are there alcohol restrictions?
  • Are there decor restrictions?

  • The list can go on. If you know exactly what you want or need before touring, this can save you a lot of time .. and stress. The day of the tour, you know exactly what you're getting into and whether or not they are a good fit or not! This helps narrow your search and hopefully lead you to The One.

    Sitting just across the river in Alton, Illinois lies this sweet venue. It's a privately owned furniture store with an intimate feel. When you walk in, you immediately feel at home. When you arrive into the event space it's modern and extravagant. The details in the framework along with the exposed brick are perfect for a backdrop to any photo. The venue has two separate rooms, 1 for ceremony and 1 for the reception. You are welcome to use the reception space as 1 for a flipped room as well. Last but not least, the chandeliers aren't only the anchor to the room, but also leave the desired lighting throughout the night.
