History buffs will appreciate this little slice of land located just an hour outside of St. Louis in Marthasville.

This Victorian-era property has three event spaces — a gazebo and adjoining tented patio, a grand hall, and a sunlit loft — plus four private suites that you can rent overnight.

You don’t have to go to France or California to find breathtaking vineyards and rolling hillsides — they’re already right in your backyard! Nestled in the heart of Missouri wine country, Noboleis Vineyards is one of the most stunning outdoor wedding venues in St. Louis. It’s only an hour west of downtown, but this venue’s secluded location makes it feel a world away. The hilltop setting offers a million-dollar view for your ceremony (especially at dusk), while the venue’s tented reception area comes complete with a dance floor, tables, chairs, lighting, and fans/heaters when necessary.

Magnolia Hotel St. Louis
The Magnolia Hotel is a super-sophisticated choice for your big day, but it’s also one of our favorite inexpensive wedding venues in St. Louis.

Thinking about hosting a wedding weekend or a destination wedding? Check out Little Piney in Hermann about an hour and a half outside of St. Louis. The venue overlooks a lake and has three event spaces: a waterfront gazebo, a pavilion, and a barn. What we love most about Little Piney is that it’s exclusively yours for the entire wedding weekend, starting on Friday at 11 a.m. That means you’ll have extra time to set up, host your rehearsal dinner, and won’t have to worry about cleaning up immediately after the wedding is over (you’ll thank us on this one). Two nights of lodging are also included for up to 12 people — plus nightly bonfires arranged by the venue’s staff! The cost for the entire weekend rental is $8,400.

Seasonal menus are designed based on fresh ingredients sourced from the venue’s gardens and local farmers.
