The Larimore located right outside St Louis is “Where Couples Enjoy Whimsically, Fairy Tale Weddings, One Magical Moment At A Time” as it says on their website.
The Larimore is a beautiful 6-acre Vintage Estate that was developed in the 1800s. It has recently been restored and was designed with the needs of today’s Wedding Events.
This location will hold up to 250 people and is extremely affordable as far as venues go. They offer a ton of options for you to choose from. They only true way to do it justice is to contact the venue at the link below and visit it yourself.
I have not had the pleasure of photographing any weddings here yet, however, I am booked to shoot one at this location in December. Look for an update around then to see some updated images.
Third Degree Glass Factory
As they state on their website Third Degree “is a one-of-a-kind event facility housed in a working glass studio.”
This 7000+ square feet of open space can accommodate up to 280 guests. And has all their prices listed right on their website how cool is that?
Again as with this amazing venue, I am booked to shoot here later this year, so look for updated images soon. From what I have seen there have been a tremendous amount of couples able to turn this enormous space into their dream location.
NEO on Locust
Per NEO on Locust website they feature two modern, private wedding and event spaces with twenty-foot ceilings, dramatically lit by full loft-style windows, natural sunlight, and modern lighting. I have been to this location as an extra for a local photographer meaning her photo booth, and I must say this location is stunning.
NEO has multiple locations to choose from have your ceremony, party, and reception in the rustic ambiance of the first floor Montana Room. Or maybe bask in a beautiful sunlit reception, banquet, and breakfast in the fourth floor NEO Room, featuring the St. Louis skyline.
As I said before, I have not had the opportunity to be the primary shooter at this location but again I have a booking here in the next few months, and I am extremely excited!
Little Piney Lodge
Their refined, yet relaxed atmosphere will have all of your guests talking about your amazing day. You can choose an outdoor reception under their pavilion or an indoor party in their Fest Room.
Their packages ensure your wedding will not feel like a blur. You will remember all of the special moments—and your memories will last a lifetime.
Their message and goal line up with mine almost perfectly…the only difference…I capture your memories, while they give you a setting to have your memories captured. 🙂
This is another venue I have not shot at, and I don’t have anyone booked. I am just hoping to shoot here very soon the venue is amazing and it is in one of my favorite locations, Hermann, MO.
The Lemp Mansion
According to the Lemp Mansion’s website, Generations of brides have chosen Lemp Mansion for the perfect wedding or reception venue. And you can choose a venue from their Mansion, Gazebo & Patio, Grand Hall, or Lemp’s Loft.
I have no booking here yet but this venue is on my bucket list to shoot at. From what I have seen every area they offer is absolutely stunning and would be amazing to photograph. You can find all their prices right on their web page so they are very transparent in what they have to offer and how much it is going to cost.
I hope this small list gave you some suggestions on some venues to take a look at. Good luck to you and your fiancee I wish you the best on your amazing wedding day.
