Alpine Park and Gardens is a 42 acres forest preserve with multiple gardens throughout the park. This full service facility caters to ceremonies, receptions, and numerous other social functions that desire an environment that is very flexible to the needs and desires of todays couples wanting a wedding their way. A full complement of services can provide a very care free day in the park. There is a bridal suite, floral shoppe, culinary facility, beverage center and a onsite coordinator to bring it all together. Presently, the park is developing a 9 acre Japanese garden and is a work in progress as is the gardens. The Gardens is an evolution of changes as it progress through each season and every spring it emerges out from the winter coat to show its brilliance! We are a part of that and the events at Alpine reflect that in character. From having a wedding in the Alpine Amphitheater among the oaks to being under a century old Oak tree next to the waterfall there are possiblities abound for a photography to capture the day and share it. Come and experience an Alpine Park Wedding!

Our wedding day in early September was absolutely perfect! Barry and his staff provided the venue, catered dinner, staffed the bar, and orchestrated a fantastic firework show at the end of the night. We brought our own libations and selected outside vendors for photography, flowers, DJ, photo booth, and dessert.
The venue is charming and fun with plenty of places to walk and explore. There are many places that work perfectly for interesting photos. Less adventurous guests will spend all of their time at the amphitheater for the ceremony or the reception shelter, which are clean, organized and cute. The amphitheater for the ceremony is naturally beautiful and fit our 110 guests perfectly. The shelter for the reception is equipped with a full bar, place for DJ booth, counters for standing and chatting, everything you need. There are many places for kids to explore including trails, ponds, and a swing set.
Barry catered dinner with a fajita bar. It was a hit with all of our guests. Delicious, entertaining, and on time. He was quick to restock the grill and keep things moving when our guests' appetites were larger than expected. Everyone loved chatting with him as they got their food. Fatima worked the bar and was very accommodating and friendly with our guests. She took especially good care of me and my bride. When the whiskey we brought ran out toward the end of the reception, the DJ mentioned it on the mic and Barry responded, "We don't run out of whiskey here," and helped us out. The fireworks lasted for >10 minutes and were orchestrated to perfection. If you decide to include fireworks, keep it a surprise for your guests. It is the first thing most people mention when reminiscing about the wedding.
Don't let the laid back nature of Barry's interactions scare you away. He has everything under control and will make the occasion perfect. If we had to do it all again, we wouldn't change a thing but we would worry less!

Our experience with Alpine Park and Gardens was fantastic! We got the all inclusive package, and Barry set us up with a DJ, photographer, florist, and did all of the catering and probably more that we cannot remember. Barry was very easy-going and flexible, making the day and planning run smoothly and everyone he referred to us was equally accommodating. Besides the amazing service, the grounds were also beautiful and the reception area was setup and cleaned by Barry's crew (which was also beautiful). Anybody looking for a laid-back, hassle-free wedding should get married at Alpine Park and Gardens!

This is the absolute perfect place to get married. The ceremony cite in the woods looks beautiful, and the reception site is like a fairytale. All night long we got compliments on how beautiful everything was. I would highly recommend this to anyone getting married in Columbia, MO.
