We chose Heart of St. Charles based on a friend’s recommendation. She knew we wanted a more intimate venue and recommended The Old Stone Chapel under the ownership of the Heart of St. Charles banquet center. What an amazing place. When we toured the venue, we were blown away. It’s quaint, welcoming feel immediately attracted us. The layout and decorations were another plus. The reception hall is on the top level and the chapel is on the lower level. Everything was in one place and worked perfectly for the ceremony / cocktail hour/ reception transition. The staff was amazing. On the day of our wedding, we had no complaints from any of our guests or wedding party. They really make you feel taken care of. The one caveat to the entire process of booking the venue, going through rehearsal, and even upto the actual wedding day was the unfortunate circumstances of having to relay info to multiple individuals. It would have been so much easier to have our main contact, Kristin, at each step along the way. Not saying any of the people we dealt with didn’t do a great job, it was like playing the telephone game where we would have to tell different people the same thing whether in person or through email to then make sure it got back to Kristin. All in all, it was an amazing venue for our wedding, they had a staff that rivalled a 5 star hotel, and it fit very well into our budget and needs. I would highly recommend Heart of St. Charles, especially The Old Stone Chapel, as your wedding venue for your wedding of 150 people or less!
I was very happy with my experience at The Heart of Saint Charles! They really know what they’re doing, and are always available if you have a question. I also feel that you get a lot for your money here. Kristen is awesome and I would highly recommend having her as your coordinator.
Amazing venue with delicious food! From signing of the contract to the best day of our life everything was so stress free and everything turned out more perfect than we imagined! Definitely recommend Heart Events!
Awesome service and delicious food! From the signing of our contract to best day of our lives everything was stress free and came together even better than we imagined! Highly recommend Heart Events!
After looking at several other venues/ceremony sites, we booked a ceremony at the Old Stone Chapel and a reception at the new Le Belle Coeur. The Old Stone Chapel is just a gem and Le Belle Coeur is beautiful, with more work on it continuing. Both these venues have a really nice atmosphere. We also got the cake and cupcakes through their bakery contact, and it was so reasonable and delicious compared to so many others that were sampled and priced. It was so nice to just having everything taken care of by one place. And, as another reviewer noted, we didn't feel nickeled and dimed to death. We worked with a few of the planners, and they were professional, prepared and great to work with; always responsive. And, the Country Inn and Suites right across the street is a very quaint place and so convenient for out of town guests with all the activities on Main Street.
Our wedding was labor day weekend in the Cascade Ballroom with Maggie as our coordinator. We had a fantastic evening!! We booked it over a year out because when they say all inclusive pricing, IT'S TRUE! So many places would nickel and dime so we were getting pretty discouraged. Sure, there are upcharges but you can get all your necessities under their price. We paid extra for upgraded chairs and the uplighting but that was it! The payments were reasonable and easy to make. We even missed one payment thinking we owed in January and not December and they worked with us on that one. All the rooms have beautiful views and have a great layout so that you can have everything you want. The food was great, we had the Chicken Marsala, Roast Beef Bordelaise, sweet corn, green bean provencal, and the garlic smashed potatoes. Many are still raving about their house salad! I am so glad we picked this venue, I never felt stressed and they took care of all the small stuff. Thank you Maggie and HSC for making my day easy!
We had our wedding reception at The Old Stone Chapel. It was the perfect size for our 120+ guests. I was concerned the dance floor would be too small but it wasn't at all and people danced all over anyways! This venue doesn't provide a ton of communication but Karen did a great job coordinating regardless! It would have been nice to have the projection of our initials on the wall included in the price, we just couldn't justify spending that much extra for it so we had a blank wall behind the head table since we didn't bring our own decorations. I thought the food was great and a good selection, and the food tasting they provide was really fun and helpful! Overall I would definitely recommend!
Kristin at the OSC was wonderful! She was very accommodating, attentive, and went above and beyond to make sure we had the best day!
We booked the Old Stone Chapel for our wedding ceremony. We aren't very religious, and didn't want to get married in an official church, but the chapel was a great alternative. It's beautiful on the inside, so much so that you don't really need any decorations! They have a lovely arbor at the front of the chapel that makes a lovely backdrop for your ceremony. Best of all, we got to have our four-legged ring bearer join us in our ceremony! They have a coordinator there for your rehearsal and day of your ceremony to help make sure everything runs smoothly! We were able to hide in the reception room upstairs while our guests arrived. They also have a beautiful patio (where you could also do your ceremony outside if you wanted), where we were able to get a group photo with all of my wedding guests (our photographer stood on the balcony above)!
We had our reception in the Grand Ballroom at the Heart of St. Charles last weekend. From the beginning, the planners were kind and helpful. The food was amazing! The best part is you can drop off your decor the week of and they will set it up for you! And it looked AMAZING! Everything I ever dreamed of! We received lots of compliments on the way the room looked and how good the food was. And the cake/cupcakes were to die for! It was such a great evening! If you're looking for a beautiful place with a great location at a decent price and great food.. this is it!
We had our reception at the Old Stone Chapel and let me just say this place is BEAUTIFUL! The staff does a great job at making you feel so special on your big day! I had a lot of stuff I needed setup for my reception and they did it flawlessly! The only, only hiccup was they forgot to turn on our initials on the back wall of our head table, so all of our pictures during our bridal party speeches were in front of a white blank wall. We were pretty sad about that, but it was an honest mistake and they turned it on as soon as they noticed. Just wished it was sooner for our photos :( otherwise this is a fantastic venue to work with, they truly know what they are doing, and I recommend them to anyone thinking of booking here.
I fell in love with Old Stone Chapel the moment I saw it. Working with Heart of St. Charles was a great experience. They literally cover all your wedding needs. The food was delicious! They set up the reception hall exactly how I envisioned and our planner, Kristen, even acted as our officiant. If you need a place that's all inclusive look no further this is it, and at a very affordable rate!
If you want a planner who will talk to you from the moment you book until the day of your wedding this is probably not the venue for you. We booked in February and didn't officially talk to our planner until November (our wedding in December). However, our planner did a great job with our wedding and was the most supportive on our wedding day. I was able to plan everything and then when we met with her, everything was all ready for her. They did all the decorating and were very accommodating and creative! It is a beautiful venue and I have no complaints!
We had a great reception at HSC. They were always friendly and accommodating to us. We dropped our decorations off Thursday for our Saturday reception and they set it all up nicely. Carmella was helpful and attentive the day of the wedding for me. Overall a perfect day!
My daughter and son-in-law were married and had their reception a couple weeks ago at the Old Stone Chapel and it was fabulous. Kristen was our coordinator and she was great. I highly recommend this venue to everyone.
We did an outside ceremony here, as well as our reception upstairs. The venue was beautiful! The staff was great and very easy to work with. The food was amazing!
I think HSC is the best place to choose if you are looking for a good reception venue in St. Charles. It's a little more money, but definitely worth it! The rooms are gorgeous and you get an event planner that will set up all your decorations, make announcements throughout the night, and make sure you won't have any stress. Kristin was our coordinator and she was great. You have a sit down meeting with your coordinator about a month out and she was able to give us advice on what would look best and what other couples have done in the past. My only really complaint is that they have backlight colors to choose from and we had decided on more of a white color but on the night of it was purple. This worked out fine since our colors were purple but it just threw us off a little. The food is delicious! Word of advice, when you go to the food tasting, don't fall in love with food that is only offered on the grand buffet option if you only have the classic. We did that so we had to choose different food options but it was still delicious. They also refund you $400 after your reception as long as there aren't any damages and we got that back right after we got back to our honeymoon. Overall, the staff is great, Kristin was very helpful, and everyone raved about the reception.
Very happy with our wedding and reception. The food was phenomenal, Overlook room is so great everyone loved having access to the balcony. Would recommend to others !
The chapel has a old rustic feeling to it but it is small and intimate which we loved. They were so easy to work with and made sure that may day went off without any problems!
We loved the venue and the staff at the Heart of St. Charles. Everyone raved at what a beautiful space it is, how delicious the food was and how everything was just perfect. We were blessed to have Karen as our day of host and she is terrific. Any question I had before the wedding day she answered immediately and the on the day of she was like a silent member of our wedding making sure everything was like I wanted. She made sure everything was perfect, including making sure the parking lot was being used by only our guest during a very busy time in that area, which had been a concern of mine. I'm not sure how she did it all, but she did!!!! Highly recommend this location and Karen!
We had our reception in the Great room and it was so romantic and beautiful. Everything went smoothly from picking out our cake to decorating the room. No complaints, worth looking into if you are getting married.
Our reception in the Cascade Room at the Heart of St. Charles Ballrooms was absolutely perfect! It was very affordable and roomy for my 90ish guests. The food is VERY GOOOOOOD! I had a guest trying to buy the rest of the Mustaccoli..lol. Staff was helpful and polite! I had our cake (Cupcakes) done through the venue as well and they were AMAZING.... with lots of yummy fillings to choose from :) It was a GREAT choice bhy choosing this venue!. Please consider Heart of St. Charles for your special event!
We really enjoyed working with The Heart of St. Charles Ballrooms' staff. They were all friendly and answered whatever questions we had, which I had a lot throughout the process. The ballroom that we used was great, the food was awesome and we received a lot of compliments. the reason I didn't give 5 stars is because I think with the pressure the bride and groom has I would have like to been able to stay longer that 4 pm to set up the reception hall the day before. Also we ended up changing the table set up which they allowed us to do. But the white linen was not very clean. At the end of the day the room was beautiful and everything went well.
We're still getting compliments about the reception! HofSC did a fantastic job. From day one Karen took care of us, and we can't thank her and the staff enough. What caught us by surprise the most would have to have been the food. We did the food tasting earlier in the year we were not impressed. I guess someone spoke to them about it and they gave the menu an overhaul! We had the round of beef and pepper chicken entrees. It was amazing! Totally caught us off guard! Thanks again for hosting our wedding reception! Your guys are awesome!
I had my reception at this location in the great room. We loved how this room had a pretty low minimum guest number because of how large this room was! We had so much space even with 200 guests. Johnna was our coordinator and she did an excellent job! She made sure everything stayed on time throughout the entire reception and made sure all of our needs were met. All of the staff were extremely helpful and made sure everything was explained clearly and no details were left out. One thing I really liked was that they will set up centerpieces and anything you provide to decorate your room, and do an excellent job with this! This takes so much stress away for the reception. I highly recommend this location and commend them for making something that can be so stressful almost completely stress-free.
