The Butterfly House was the ideal location for our wedding! We wanted an outdoor wedding, but with a safety net if it rains or got cold (October wedding). The Butterfly House was the perfect option! It was so beautiful and the tent was there in case of rain, but the sides were all open so it still had the beauty of the lake and the garden. The tent can close up and they have heat in case it gets cold, but luckily we didn't need it.
Eileen and staff are wonderful to work with! She was always available when I emailed questions, took excellent care of us during the rehearsal, ceremony, and reception. Everything was taken care of for us, so it was a perfect day!
This was the only unique place (i.e. not a reception hall) that offered personality and included chairs and tables and help with set up (which is a real money saver!).
The carousel was also a really great photo op, I can't wait to get our photos back!
I highly recommend The Butterfly House and Eileen, our wedding was perfect!
I had my ceremony at the Butterfly House this past June. They were amazing!! They provided the sound system, microphones (where ever we wanted them) and they even had a specialist who took my ceremony music I had a friend put onto a CD and made it perfect for the timing I had walked out and down to the platform around the garden. Their coordinators were SOO good and so nice. They kept everything and everyone in check where they needed to be and they were extremely professional! After the ceremony was over, my husband and I got to go inside of the Butterfly Conservatory and take some pictures with our photographers (AMAZING PICTURES!) then we walked over to the other building and took pictures of us all riding on the Carousel and all around the old buildings and houses that are all over Faust Park! We couldn't have chosen a better place to start our future together!
Gorgeous site for my garden wedding. We decided on a June wedding, and thankfully the weather played out perfectly. The women at the butterfly house were very easy to work with and made sure everything went well. We had the butterfly house event manager retire mid planning, so it would have been helpful to have been told that when we started working with them. Overall, a beautiful site and I wouldn't have changed a thing.
I had my wedding May 31, 2014 at the Butterfly House in Faust Park, Chesterfield, MO inside Monsanto Pavilion. It is the most gorgeous location! It is a cozy, private outdoor venue that can accommodate 100 guests. They have several, beautiful, reasonably priced decor options as well. The wedding coordinators are very professional and friendly, detail-oriented throughout the whole process. The only thing I was unhappy about was the setup and the start of the ceremony. My ceremony was supposed to begin at 1:30pm. At 1:10pm, they were still setting up chairs and tying bows on the chairs. My wedding party and guests were left waiting. I did not want my guests seeing the "behind the scenes" preparations and I expected everything to be set up beforehand. Ideally, this should have been completed before our arrival. As a result, my ceremony began late at 2:00pm. They did extend my rental time of the facility by half an hour because of this. Myself, the bride, and my maid of honor had to tell the staff to seat the guests so we can get started. I felt that it was not in my role to take charge and that this could have been run better. This was poorly organized, which is very surprising because everything was perfect leading up to the event. Otherwise, very beautiful venue and I had a very beautiful wedding. The staff is extremely nice and the service overall was excellent. I highly recommend this wedding venue!
I picked the Butterfly House for my reception location as it is beautiful. It takes place in an open tent (but the walls can come down) which is located on a brick patio next to a lake and a garden. It was gorgeous and I would pick it again. The only problem I had was the coordinator (who is no longer there) would never get back to me and when she left the new staff didn't even call to let me know who was handling my reception. I found out from my caterer that the prior coordinator was no longer there and had to call to confirm everything again. The reception ended up being fantastic,but the Butterfly House staff needs to get their act together with confirming details and keeping their clients informed.
We had our ceremony at the Butterfly House and our reception elsewhere. Overall, it was beautiful and we had a good experience. The ceremony was in the Monsanto Pavilion, and we were able to fit 125 people. It was a little on the crowded side but not too bad. The main reason we chose the Butterfly House over other outdoor locations was that there was a backup plan in case of rain (it would be under a large, permanent tent). One thing I didn't like was that there was no place to get ready or wait for the ceremony to start. I had to wait in the office and could only have 1 person stay with me.
We had our wedding and reception at the Butterfly House and it was more than we could have asked for. Amy was wonderful, and our guests enjoyed the chance to see butterflies during the break between ceremony and reception. Everything was outdoors, and everything was amazing!
This is a beautiful place for a wedding, you are totaly taken care of here
Staff was fairly easy to work with, and the grounds were beautiful. The only problems we had were with some of the rules and guidelines. They were not specific at all about telling us what we could and could not use at our reception. We had told them months before the wedding what we had planned to use for decorations and they agreed, but on the day of the wedding they did not let us do what we had planned. The staff also seemed to be bothered by any small questions we had. Very beautiful place to have a wedding, but staff is just ok.
