The most beautiful, unique, southern charm venue around the St. Louis area!

We had our wedding on May 17, 2024. This is one of the most beautiful unique venues around the St Louis area! The new owners are so helpful and friendly and very easy to work with. I receive so many compliments from so many people regarding the beauty of this venue. Many people who attend the wedding kept telling me they did not even know something like this existed in the St. Louis area. To my knowledge, there is not another venue like this around the St. Louis area! Everything was perfect, including the food, the bar service (Champaign Wishes), The marble gazebo, the beautiful mansion, the outside beauty southern charm of the whole property and Especially the new owners. The owners were there for us before the wedding, helping us plan everything, as well as during the wedding and after the wedding? We even had the person in charge of keeping the outside beautiful, tie down our seating chart that was outside, just to make sure it would not break. Oh, and to top it off, my daughter was able to arrive to the ceremony in a white horse and carriage! Thank you to the Larimore for making my daughter’s dream wedding come true!

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.
