The Bluffs on Broadway was the perfect venue for my husband and me. We live in Virginia, but wanted to get married in St. Louis. Even though we were planning this wedding from states away, Mark did an amazing job of helping put together the wedding of our dreams. When we had an idea that we wanted to make happen, he gave us multiple ways that it could be pulled off, and then he helped us to put it together. He is very responsive and attentive. He set everything up for us the day of the wedding and also packed everything back up securely in bubble wrap for us to fly it back home with us. He worked closely with our DJ to make sure they knew what was happening next. During the ceremony, he even called them on their cell phone to stay coordinated and made sure the music was played at the right time for each part, because the DJ was set up in the basement (per our request) and could not see what was happening during the ceremony. Without his help and planning, our wedding would not have gone off without a hitch, like it did.
My husband even lost my vows to him the night of the wedding and Mark was able to find them outside and on his property the next morning. He accommodated us to pick them up that next morning before our flight back to Virginia.
I cannot thank you enough, Mark!!

Mark Widmann has the most beautiful venue we have seen. The Mississippi River was the backdrop for photos along with an extremely unique landscaped yard. Artwork throughout the house and yard. Mark made sure everything flowed well, including keeping all 12 children happy. He helped us make our wedding the best day of our lives. Not a single problem along the way!Sent on 09/26/2015

The Bluffs on Broadway genuinely exceeded our expectations. This venue is beautiful and offers an endless array of interesting landscaping, art, stunning view on the Mississippi River, and intriguing stories behind each element. All of our guests enjoyed themselves and have since shared their favorite remembrances of this experience.
We chose The Bluffs on Broadway for our wedding ceremony as it offers everything in one location. Mark Widmann has created a space that is attractive inside and out. You will find convenient parking, guest reception, multiple options for ceremony setups, excellent menu options, dance floor, and a pleasurable staff. We were pleased to see all of this at reasonable rates.
During our meetings to plan our event Mark listened to us and offered suggestions to our ideas and requests. While we were focused on the details of our wedding it became apparent that we underestimated a few things when the actual day arrived. Mark stepped in to ensure our day proceeded flawlessly. Mark’s knowledge, experience, and friendly personality quickly set our minds at ease when the unexpected arose. An extra guest arrived, no problem. We did not rehearse yet Mark directed the wedding party from two locations as if we practiced in advance. When the children finished dinner and activities we prepared for them, Mark lead them downstairs to allow some extra time for the adults. Our photographer was allowed everywhere to capture this unique setting in addition to the ceremony.
While The Bluffs on Broadway is a business and you sign a contract, our interactions are best described as a partnership and more importantly the feeling of a friendship. We recommend anyone planning an event to set up an appointment and see the possibilities, without a doubt we know this was the best choice for our ceremony.
Want to have the most fun ever at the hippest place in town? Bluffs on Broadway can handle that. Modern art in a whimsical vein is everywhere, making every vista a great photo location. The Bluffs look out over the Mississippi where barges ply the river and water birds fish. It's a residence as well as an event site and so it has the ambiance of a happy home--as if you had uncles who just happened to have this drop dead gorgeous mansion where you could have a reception or rehearsal party. The grounds are beautiful year round. The companion city-chic location is Randall Gallery downtown near the St. Louis Post Dispatch. it's not traditional-it's terrific!
