From our first planning meeting to our last goodbyes as the bride and groom left the winery, the Villa Antonio staff were there from start to end. Donna and her staff were extraordinary with their knowledge, service, personalities, and attention to every detail. Every guest was served with extreme professionalism, awesome food, fine wine and hospitality. Weeks after the reception, family and friends are still talking about the food and wine and overall experience.
The venue and its surrounding grounds are beautiful, complete with bride/groom rooms.
For the bride who wants to feel spoiled and for the groom who loves the outdoors, there is no other place than Villa Antonio Winery !
Donna and her crew take are of EVERYTHING! no stress! have your ceremony and reception here! guests are still raving about food!
Our guests are still talking about how beautiful the winery is. The food was amazing and the two wedding planners were so awesome! We are so glad we found this special venue!
The price was also very good compared to the other wineries in the saint louis area.
We used Villa Antonio for our October wedding. We had 160 guests. The ceremony was outside and the reception under the tent. Everything was gorgeous and the staff almost all the decorating for us (I rented decorations from a previous bride). The food and service were wonderful. They even put together a vegetarian menu for us! The one thing I wish I would have communicated was the dismissal of tables to eat - my dad's family ate last and we had fewer tables and he paid for everything... BUT other than that, I couldn't have asked for more. Donna, the woman who runs the show, is extremely knowledgable and knows how to plan it all if you need help, which we did. She is definitely an expert!I highly recommend this venue!!!
This is a beautiful place to get married but get ready to spend a ton of money and don't assume everything is included in the standard price. My family was particularly upset they only allow the bar to stay open for 3 hours but if you want it to stay open for an additional amount of time you can pay another 5 to 6 hundred dollars for a little bit of time. Everyone who attended the wedding had a fabulous time though and continually commented on how beautiful everything was
There are some really great things that I can say about this place. First and foremost the place was GORGEOUS! We just got married in the fall and the colors, the trees, everything. The winery is just stunning. The food, amazing! There are a lot of choices to choose from. Their wine is also very good. I am not a big wine drinker and I still liked their wine. Also, most of the staff was super helpful. The bartenders and servers were absolutely amazing! The team also set up all of our centerpieces and a lot of the decorations because I had done them myself. It is a picture perfect, delicious place. However there are some things I can say about it that aren't so great. First, the wedding coordinater is not the most welcoming or friendly at times. At the beginning we were very impressed that she was so straight forward and seemed like she knew how to get the job done. And she was great and very friendly at the rehearsal dinner. She was not always prompt to return emails either. Most of the time on average it took a day or two to respond. Sometimes longer. On the night of our wedding, we had a lot of guest complaining that she was rude, short and not that friendly. They do warn you in advance that the music has to stay at a certain level because the owners live on site. But stated that it can still be pretty loud. They were constantly telling our DJs to turn the music down, while our guest at the outer tables were complaining that they could barely hear some of the father daughter dance, mother son music. They do instruct you that you have to be off the premises at a certain time. And once that time comes, they are very strict and not so friendly about it. The other thing that I was not fond of, is no matter if your guest are under 21 they still have to pay for the whole open bar price. You have to have 20 or more guest that are under age in order to get a discounted price for them for the bar. They're choices for open bar were very good though. Overall, the place is gorgeous and the bartenders and serving staff were great. Food and alcohol deleicious. The florist they have on site was very helpful. I wish I could have delt with her more. If you can get past the attitude that we recieved at times and don't mind your music quieter then I would recommend this place.
Everyone at the winery went above and beyond to make our day so special. As soon as we arrived we were given food and drinks had our own area to get ready in. I didn't have to worry about anything. They took care of setting everything and taking everything down. I had meetings to pick out all our linens and to go over every detail and nothing cost extra. Everything was included in the price. I can not stress enough how perfect they made our big day. Many of our friends have gone after our wedding just to go get lunch the food is amazing!!! They made our wedding so much fun and so special!
The coordinator here, Donna, was wonderful from the begining. She helped me plan my long-distance wedding and I always trusted that things would go well. She was very accomdodating, and even brought things from her home to make my day special. The food and staff were wonderful and the setting was beautiful. She was very accomodating the night of the wedding as well. Her staff boxed up all my items too. I can't say enough good things. Also, this was really a great quality for a lower price range.
This was a great place they have live bands and tons of seating and the wine is great.
The winery was a beautiful setting! The staff was great and they worked with us to make sure we had everything we wanted and needed to make the wedding perfect. I could not have been happier!
It was absolutely beautiful and the staff there were so prepared and had everything under control that my husband and I were not bothered once with details. The staff even surprised us as soon as the ceremony was finished and we were taking pictures with bringing down wine and beer for the entire wedding party. In doing this they didn't bother us with asking what they wanted; instead that asked family members what we likes and then just brought it down.
