The Butterfly House is one of the most beautiful places to have an outdoor wedding/reception in the St. Louis area! It was a magical night and our guests loved being able to go see the butterflies in the conservatory during the cocktail hour! It was everything I imagined and more. If you are looking for an outdoor fairy garden complete with good food, lots of twinkle lights, beautiful flowers, butterflies, this is definitely the place for you! Furthermore the staff was very professional and accommodating. They do this so often that everything is set in auto-drive and you can sit back and enjoy your wedding!

My now husband and I did our ceremony in the conservatory. Our wedding was magical, and everything we could have hoped for. The conservatory wedding was absolutely perfect for our intimate wedding. The event staff was wonderfully professional, and helpful.

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!
