    Incredible service, amazing staff, and a beautiful venue. My wedding day could not have gone more perfectly, and I owe that to the Franklin of Soulard

    I don't even know how to put into words how amazing this venue and Christina and Danny are. Their vision and execution of remodeling this space from what it was has been an inspiration to watch unfold and be a part of. My dad's band came out of retirement to play my wedding at the Franklin of Soulard. They had previously worked band jobs here when it was ran by its previous owners. He had his reservations about me getting married there from what he knew from playing there in the past, but was blown away by Christina and Danny's accommodations and how they have made the space much easier for bands to set up. They have provided handicap access into the building and use of an elevator to get heavy equipment to the ballroom. They have also provided easy to use ramps to get things onto the stage! Everything ran seamlessly. The accommodations made for the band were just a fraction of the amazing things I have to say about this venue. It is an absolutely gorgeous space, and Christina and Danny make sure you have EVERYTHING you need throughout every step of the way. Their staff was so kind and efficient, the food was incredible, and we had the absolute time of our lives. I've thought about quitting my job and working for them just so I can spend more time at this beautiful place and hang out with Christina and Danny more 😂 I can honestly say, my wedding day would not have been the same without Christina and Danny and their support in making our dream day come true. They made the planning process easy and enjoyable, and the day of could not have gone more perfectly. You will not regret booking this absolutely amazing venue!!

    Beyond Grateful

    Christina and Daniel are gems. They are capable, responsive, and trustworthy. They followed through on their promises. We were exceptionally well served and are so grateful for the role they played in our best day ever. Our guests were in awe of every inch of the venue's beauty. P.S. the limoncello spritz signature cocktail was a crowd favorite on the sweaty St. Louis summer day.
