About The Larimore

The Larimore is a historic wedding venue located in St. Louis, Missouri. Set on one of the largest and most innovative farmlands in the Midwest, this pre-civil war house boasts an Italianate style, 14 fireplaces, and 12-foot ceilings. The home was finished in 1858. During your wedding event, you will have full access to the six-acre estate.

Facilities and Capacity

Use of this venue includes The Larimore Mansion, vintage parlors, romantically lit foyers, and a spacious bridal suite. This stately home features grand furnishings, perfect for taking romantic pictures. The mansion has a unique charm that can set the tone for your memorable day. The venue also offers their banquet center for couples to celebrate their new marriage in. This elegant space has a dance floor and can accommodate up to 250 guests.

Couples who wish to wed outdoors can do so at the garden wedding gazebo, with the mansion in the background of all your guests. With lush landscaping and a detailed structure, this setting will provide you with an enchanting atmosphere. Another option for your ceremony is the quaint wedding chapel. This space is ideal for a more intimate, indoor ceremony. It features wood details, wood pews, and neutral color scheme, allowing you to make the space yours for your walk down the aisle.

The Larimore offers many photo opportunities around their property. In addition to the mansion, gazebo, and chapel, their lush flowering water garden sets the tone for your romantic pictures. This area features a weeping willow, koi pond, and tons of flowers. Other picture-perfect options around the farm and mansion include a tree swing, fountains, sweeping round staircase, and ornate mirrors and furnishings.

    Larimore provided everything needed and more for our wedding ceremony/reception. This could not have gone more smoothly without the help and careful preparation of Dena. Months after, our guests are still letting us know how great it was. We can't recommend this venue enough!

    I got married at Larimore on November 5, 2017. Larimore is everything I wanted in a venue. The outside is beautiful. The inside is beautiful. It was all ours for the day, and the prices were reasonable. Dena, the on-site coordinator, was with me every step of the way and ensured that the day went flawlessly. Even though the rain poured right before my ceremony, the staff was flexible and dried all the chairs so that I could have the outdoor ceremony that I wanted. We used Stems florist and Rockstar DJs, two of Larimore’s preferred vendors, and were extremely happy with their work--they are so comfortable with the space after doing hundreds of weddings there, as well as being great at their craft. I’m so glad that Larimore exists in St. Louis and so glad that I was able to get married there!

    Officiated a wedding at this beautiful venue in Sept 2015 and could not have been more pleased with the setting and the work of the husband/wife in coordinating the entrance of the wedding party for the ceremony. Made my work easy and I know the couple was pleased.
