We stumbled upon the McPherson by random chance and it was such a great discovery! We had to book over a year in advance to get a date we wanted but it was worth the wait! We did both ceremony and reception there and everything worked out perfectly, thanks to Philip! The ceremony was outside on their gorgeous patio that has all its own natural decorations so we didn’t need to do hardly anything since it was beautiful to begin with. The reception was inside with awesome high ceilings and beautiful wood and stained glass windows and so many guests were blow away at its natural beauty. Without even meaning to, it gave off the vibe of being somewhat Harry Potter themed, which is the best compliment in my eyes. Philip has made an amazing venue and worked so hard to make sure everything ran smoothly, even when it looked like it was about to rain! He’s prepared for everything and was easy to communicate with at any time in our planning! We can’t thank him enough and can only hope more people get to experience the greatness that is The McPherson!!Sent on 10/24/2019

A hidden gem in the CWE
The McPherson is an amazing venue. From it's former chapel-look with the stain glass windows to the incredible outdoor courtyard, it had everything we were looking for. Philip was a great host and easy to work with. Many of our guests commented on how beautiful the space was. I would highly recommend the McPherson to anyone. It's a hidden gem in the Central West End.Sent on 05/28/2019

The McPherson was the perfect venue for our wedding of roughly 120 guests. Philip was a great host, and very responsive to phone call and text message. He was present for the ceremony and made sure things went smoothly. The venue is absolutely beautiful, and many people commented on how much they liked it. Additionally, it was nice to be able to have the ceremony and reception in the same location. One of my favorite parts of the venue is the bridal suite for the girls to get ready in the day of. We did our hair and make up there, had lunch and drinks, and generally had a great time. Additionally, most of our guests were in from out of town, and the location in the central west end was a great showcase for St. Louis. Russo's in their exclusive caterer, and the food and drink were quite delicious and presented beautifully, as was the room set up. However, in the planning phase for the reception, Kathy from Russo's was a bit difficult to get a hold of. That being said, Russo's did a great job and it was worth it to not have to shop around and find a caterer on my own. Overall, this was the PERFECT venue for our purposes and I would absolutely hire them again. Highly recommended!Sent on 11/20/2018
