Coming Soon – Complete Venue Review!

Let’s talk weddings, receptions and choices today.  There are over 300 different venues in the St. Louis/St. Charles and surrounding areas that can accommodate anything from very small weddings to some that can host super large weddings.  Some have outdoor space, some don’t.  Some add up to 30%+ with tax and gratuity charges and others charge for upgraded linens, napkins, and plate settings.    Some will have an on-staff wedding coordinator, some will charge extra for the dance floor, while others provide lots of extras like champagne for the wedding party and complimentary night stays (mainly hotels).    Some have a base charge of $19.95 per guest – and some are as high as $100.0/guests.  Some charge a room fee – others don’t.    And, there are many MORE variables.

So, does all this leave your head spinning?  I have had Mothers tell me that when planning their daughter’s wedding they have spent “HOURS” comparing one to the other!   BrideStLouis to the rescue!

BrideStLouis is finalizing a massive job of assembling all this information for you.  Soon you will have access to COMPLETE VENUE  information all in one place – BrideStLouis.    Most brides have told us that the hardest part of planning a wedding is finding the right venue.  So, we decided to make your job easier!   Watch for more news and our release coming very soon!!!

Kuhs Estate & Farm

Oak Tree Ceremony
Kuhs Estate & Farm is a private historic 150 acre estate and farm located in Spanish Lake, Missouri.  It is a beautiful location on the Missouri Bluffs that overlooks the Confluence.  It is known for its gorgeous landscape, quaint farm, stunning rock garden and beautiful scenic vistas.

Ceremony

This venue consists of two sides that may be rented together or separately.  The Farm Side is a working farm by day and offers lots of typical farm experiences such as hay rides, carriage rides, and bonfires.  There is a beautiful Oak Tree that is such a memorable spot to say your vows.  The Estate Side has the epic backdrop of the Missouri and Mississippi river, a stone terrace, and a romantic Gazebo atop the river bluffs plus the multi-level sunken garden.

Sunken Gardens

This is an OUTDOOR venue so you will need to have arrangements for inclement weather (a tent is recommended) plus port-a-potties.   Booking includes use of the property from 10am until 11pm.  They also rent chairs, décor, furniture and staging items.   The Farm Side is $3200 for Saturdays and $2500 for Friday and Sundays.  The Estate side is $3200 for Saturdays and $2500 for Fridays and Sundays.  You may also book both sides for $6000 on a Saturday or $4800 for a Friday or Sunday.  This is a beautiful setting for a wedding and is designed for wedding budgets around the $30,000 level.

Tent

Hermann Hill – Venue Review

One of the most delightful locations not too far from St. Louis is Hermann Hill.  It started as just a Bed & Breakfast, but soon grew into a wonderful wedding venue.  It is situation on a hill and overlooks the Missouri river.  They have a beautiful chapel, large open-window reception room, great dressing rooms, a gazebo overlooking the river, and they just recently added a Peace Chapel and Fire Pit.  If you are having out-of-town guests, they have cottages right on the facility that are modern and luxurious.

Gazebo

But what I like most about this particular venue is their attention to service to their guests.  And, of course, their food is excellent.

Hermann Hill Wedding Chapel

 

Large Reception Room

 

Hermann is about one hour west outside of the St. Louis area.  They offer various pricing packages good for elopements or larger weddings, as their reception area can accommodate up to 300 people.  Every wedding is personally attended to by your own Personal Wedding Coordinator, and when you add up all the extras they include, it’s a great deal.  They will help coordinate ordering a wedding cake, recommending great photographers who are familiar with their facility, and will suggest various musicians and florists to make planning your wedding easy.

Fire Pit overlooking Missouri River
