The most magical venue you could choose!
You will simply not find a better venue than Jeannie and Jim's for your wedding. If your style is romantic, this is it. If your style is woodsy, this is it. If your style is backyard fairy garden, this is it. The Lalumondiere hits every single box on a "I want a beautiful, unique wedding" checklist. We have heard from several of our guests "it was the most beautiful wedding we've ever been to; how did you find that place?!" and the best part is we KNEW from the moment we picked it that would be the case because we felt it, too. Jeannie and Jim are amazing to work with from the very first meeting all the way to the morning after. If you choose the Lalumondiere (and why wouldn't you?), do yourself a favor and also hire Kara, their on-site coordinator. She will help you achieve every dream you never knew you had about the look and feel of your big day. Note that you will have to rent all of your tables, chairs, and linens separately as Jeannie and Jim do not provide them BUT they help with so much of that process to make it go smooth. It was my biggest concern and I feel silly for it now because aside from breaking down the chairs and tables at the end of the night (which guests ALWAYS help with, not to mention your bridal party) they take care of absolutely everything. Don't pass this place up!Sent on 07/26/2019
The Lalumondiere Mill & Rivergardens LLC's reply:We can't thank you enough for taking time to leave such a lovely review. Jim and I also knew that you were going to be great to work with, and we weren't wrong. Sometimes the best part of what we do is the morning after when we can sit with our lodging guests and share memories of the night before, plans for your future and life in general. Thanks for choosing us to celebrate with. Our time with you was wonderful!

Magical place for an outdoor Missouri wedding
We had our wedding at the Lalumondiere in October 2019, and it was a wonderful experience. Thank you, Jeannie and Jim for hosting us! The Lalumondiere is their home and I will forever be envious that they get to live in this magical place! It was the only "venue" we looked at when planning our wedding and we knew right away it was the one for us. Go tour it if you're interested; you have to see it in person to realize all of its beauty! If you want a smaller outdoor ceremony and reception, this is THE place to do it. It matched our laidback "let's just get together" vibe and then exceeded our expectations with its beautiful rushing water, lush green space and coziness. Jeannie and Jim were helpful and kind and did so much work throughout our 2 years of planning to help us have this day. The only note I will add for planning couples is that chairs and tables are not included here which was a bit different than other venues I researched; however, because this is their actual home, we understood why :) Lastly, we had a very small team taking down our event at the end of the night, and I would recommend planning to have more help than we did to ensure the property is cleared quickly and efficiently by event end time. Book your wedding here - you will not be disappointed!Sent on 01/22/2020

I grew up less than a mile away from this venue. Love the venue and the owners!!! Our wedding was everything we dreamed of and more! My husband even asked if we can get married there again! Would highly recommend this venue to anyone!! JimSent on 10/10/2018
And Jeannie are wonderful to work with!! Thank you both!!
There are many places to choose where to have your reception and ceremony in the St. Louis area but none are as unique and picturesque as The Lalumondiere Mill & Rivergardens. As you enter onto the property you are forced quickly to make tough decisions of where to let your eyes lead you! I am always quickly drawn to the sounds of the Big River that is flowing by. You can take in the view from anywhere on the grounds. Others will choose to walk around and check out all of the beautiful gardens and stonework. Just make sure that at some point you get your pictures taken on the historic one lane bridge that goes over the river! Jim and Jeannie Lalumondiere have opened up there home to share their years of hard work(which still continues daily) to provide the perfect backdrop for your special occasion. This is a one of a kind venue that will have everyone at your event talking!
I would like to highly recommend the Lalumondiere to St. Louis area couples looking for a unique outdoor venue for their wedding. Jeannie and Jim have developed something really special and it was a highlight of my year to photograph a wedding at their space. I've been to a lot of venues in the area but I can confidently say there is nothing quite like the mill out there. From my dealings with the owners, it is clear they really care about their clients and providing an unforgettable venue for their events.
This unique location was formally a grist mill and is along the Big River in Byrnesville, MO (near House Springs). The owners, Jeannie and Jim Lalumondiere, have created an inspiring location for those who want a ceremony and reception location in the same place. There are many little details that go unnoticed in photographs. You have to go and see this place yourself to see how spectacular it is. ** Carolyn Burke - Event Location Service
