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
