The Abbey is an incredibly beautiful place and a perfect choice if you are interested in having the ceremony and reception in the same location as we did for our 9/18 wedding. We did not have an outside wedding planner, but Patty Long's day-of planning staff are professional, knowledgeable and extremely organized. Our day of planner, Jenna, was able to coordinate the timeline, vendors arriving, wait staff and the overall flow of the event from start to finish.Sent on 10/03/2018
Additionally, because the catering and the venue are tied together and there is a kitchen on-site, the food is very fresh and not at all like typical wedding food options. (Dry chicken, anyone?) They were able to work with us to create a custom brunch menu that our guests loved.
We received many compliments from our other VENDORS about how well-produced, beautifully and smoothly the entire event went. Our photographers were AMAZED at the natural morning daylight in the loft area (I highly recommend renting this as well as the venue for the bridal party to get ready in). The garden area, staircases, stained glass, and high arched ceiling create the perfect backdrop for top-notch photos. I would recommend 9th Street Abbey, or Patty Long's Catering, in general, to anyone without hesitation.

We held our ceremony and reception at 9th St. Abbey for our June 2018 wedding. The venue is gorgeous. The food is so easy to customize and fair in their pricing . Andrea was assigned to help us through the entire planning process and the day of. She provided the best service was our own personal wedding planner the day of. She made sure everything went perfectly and every detail was fulfilled. You will not be disappointed booking your wedding at 9th St. Abbey!Sent on 06/25/2018

Most wonderful experience starting with the staff, especially Jenna, the food, and of course, the Abbey itself. Everyone acted like it was their daughter too. I highly recommend 9th Street Abbey and Patty Long Catering.Sent on 11/09/2017

The 9th Street Abbey is a great location in the Soulard area to have your Ceremony & Reception all in one place. Great staff, service, and venue!
One of the unique venues in St. Louis that isn't simply a hotel ballroom. Well worth considering!
