We work closely with the Butterfly House on countless events every year. Stephanie, and the rest of the staff there are amazing to work with. They're super organized, professional, fun, and passionate about they do. I can't say enough great things about their staff there. We've never walked away from an event frustrated or upset. Their team really thinks of everything.
This is one of the forgotten gems of St. Louis. One of the more unique venues I've had the pleasure of working with for weddings. From getting into the butterfly habitat for all your guests, to the ceremony and reception possibilities. The staff are knowledgeable and supportive.
The Butterfly House is a gorgeous venue for all types of events: weddings, reception, memorials, business dinners. It is the only venue in town where we can leave our compost instead of hauling it back to our kitchen. We really admire their commitment to sustainability and enjoy their friendly staff. The Butterfly House makes it very convenient for the hosts to be able to enjoy their event and their guests. The gardens and butterflies are stunning. We can't wait to be back!
