WOW--so obviously the place is beautiful and you couldn't ask for a better setting. But the people are AWESOME. They paid such exceptional attention to detail and what the bride and groom want for their day. We never felt any pressure from them to do things a certain way, yet... Read More came to us with different ideas and options that we were free to take or leave. As someone who had a lot of her plate during wedding planning, it was so helpful to have someone who was calm (even when things weren't working out as planned), accommodating, and thoughtful. The touches they put on events are above and beyond. I can't say enough nice things about Elizabeth and my experience with Kuh's.

The moment Robert and I stepped foot on this gorgeous estate, and met Luli and Nick, we had no doubt Kuhs Estate & Farm was where we were meant to get married ! From day one of planning to our actual wedding day, the process was flawless! Luli's attention to detail and how she... Read More turned my vision into a reality is still beyond me ! Thanks to Luli, every aspect of our wedding mirrored mine and my husbands hobbies and personalities in every way..... from the vintage furniture seating areas, to the ceremony entrance way draped in all of my wedding flowers ( and succulents!) , to the reception table decor; greenery, antlers + feathers, and boxed succulents on the "His" tables and on the "Hers" tables; greenery mixed with simple and elegant flower vases and laced votives ! Breathtaking ! And our most favorite part of the day, our own beautifully decorated private table in the rock garden, where we were swooped off too immediately following the ceremony, to play a quick game of gin and enjoy our first 30 minutes together as husband and wife in our element. On the table, a lovely fruit and cheese plate, champagne for me, and a Busch beer for my husband, and a lovely wooden card holder and handwritten note from Luli and Nick. I tear up just thinking about it ! We are still in awe of our wedding day and how magical it was; not just for us but for all of our guests. We've heard time and time again, ours was the most beautiful wedding they have ever been too and I couldn't agree more :) ! Thank you Luli and Nick for a wedding day beyond our wildest dreams, for memories we will always cherish, and for the forever friends we have made with the both of you. All our love, Tracy and Robert

This review is long overdue, but hopefully it does justice to the immense gratitude my husband and I share for this majestic venue and its wonderful owners, Elizabeth and Nick Fichter. This private property is the perfect marriage of rustic elegance and natural beauty. We got... Read More married under an expansive oak tree in the sprawling valley of the property, so picturesque that it inspired my sister to paint a watercolor of the tree and incorporate it into our wedding invitation and day-of paperwork. Words can't do it justice. Just look at the pictures and you'll begin to get a sense of the incomparable serenity, beauty, and intimacy of this special part of the property. Our reception took place on the bluff of the private estate, overlooking the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers, a priceless view that embodies the ethos of our state. Our 230 guests had ample room to take in the view, mingle, appreciate the many sites of the property (the stone garden, the gazebo at the highest point of the property, the stone sitting area at the furthest edge of the property etc), and then naturally move into the tent located nearby on the bluff. The reception under the tent was magical. From the carefully crafted harvest dinner tables to the after-party smores around the campfire, Elizabeth and her team beautifully designed the night with such tasteful class and an appreciation of our vision. Not only is she a talented visionary, she is a joy to work with from start to finish, always ensuring that every detail is taken care of with such a reassuring and professional ease about her demeanor (which we brides appreciate so much!). Her attention to detail, institutional knowledge of the industry, and positive attitude made the overall experience so amazing and fluid. We were able to be present and completely in-the-moment the entire day, without any hiccups or complications. Andrew and I truly can't express how meaningful the experience was on the most important day of lives. Elizabeth and your team - thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Not that I am planning on getting married again, but if I would have to, I would totally do it there again. It is a wonderful venue, it is up on the bluffs overlooking the confluence of Missouri and Mississippi. It is outdoor in a tent (in case it rains) and gives plenty of... Read More space for your guests to explore and have a great time. Liz (the owner) and Renee, the wedding planner that comes with the package, are amazing and help you as much or as little as you want to make sure it will be what you want. Liz really took my vision and my Pinterest board and translated it 1:1. The only little negative thing is,that it is a bit pricy. It is $3700 to rent the place (incl. the wedding planner), $4000 for the tent and $1000 for the restrooms. That does not include any food or rentals (chairs, tables, dishes etc.) But you do have the place all day long from 10am until 11pm. So you can have your ceremony and/or reception there. (they are only doing one wedding each day).

We are incredibly anxious to receive the professional photos back from this amazing hidden gem of Saint Louis.

Kuhs Estate was the perfect venue for our ceremony and reception. When my fiance (now husband) and I set out to find a wedding venue we knew we wanted something rustic with a lot of natural beauty.

We knew right away that we wanted to have our wedding at Kuhs - it is the real deal. The estate and farm are tucked away in Spanish Lake with gorgeous views on the estate side overlooking the bluffs; the entire property is completely picturesque. The property has been in Elizabeth's, the owner, family for years and you can tell that she completely adores the property itself and helping people to have their dream event happen on the property. We also rented some gorgeous vintage pieces from Liz's company, Vintage for the Day, for the wedding and could not have loved them more. Liz also offers custom vintage designs that are stunning. Liz and Renee were a pleasure to work with and truly care about the events they host at Kuhs. We highly recommend this venue

Wedding of our DREAMS!

Reviewed on 7/11/2013 Ashley H

I can’t begin to recommend Kuhs Estate and Farm enough. Our wedding was more beautiful, charming, and fun than I ever could have imagined. And, that just wouldn’t have been possible if we had held it anywhere else or put it together without the amazing staff and volunteers at... Read More Kuhs. To begin, the venue is stunning! We got married on the bluffs, had our cocktail hour under the giant tree, and our reception in the barn. The Barn was built more than 100 years ago, it is charming, beautiful, and was just what we wanted. It is a working farm, but everything smelled amazing - like flowers, was clean and well organized, and who gets to take pictures overlooking a river, in sunken gardens, next to a 200 year old oak, in a historical dairy barn, and with the baby animals?!?

 Truly, the photos are incredible, but more importantly, the day was amazing. After our ceremony, our family and friends spent the afternoon touring the grounds, playing lawn games, and toasting craft beer among beautiful vintage treasures. Then danced the night away and chatted under the stars. It was wonderful. The contract does say that the venue can be booked on the alternative days of the weekend: for us that would have been a Friday or Sunday. Although this didn’t end up happening the weekend of our wedding, we were well aware that it was a possibility. Part of the reason we chose Kuhs because unlike other venues where you have 2 or 4 hours allocated for set up time, we had ALL day (13 hours)! It turned out to be plenty of time; my fiancé even had time to play bocce and I got to snuggle a few horses before the wedding. To make the experience easier and even better, the staff couldn't have been nicer, more accommodating, planful, and kind. The owner, Elizabeth, in particular was great! She was overly generous and always asking how she could support us in having the best day possible. The day of the wedding she was armed with a huge group of staff and volunteers to ensure everything was clean and organized. At every turn they bent over backwards to make our wedding day special and spent the better part of a year helping us plan it. They met with us at least a handful of times, each time walking us patiently through all the possibilities. They recommended great vendors and on the day of, when one didn't show up on time, rather than bother us, they went above and beyond to call them and get it straightened out on our behalf. These people live and breathe this magical place. They gave us the best day of our lives and a wedding better than we could have imagined. All our guests were in love with the experience, and many have asked to return as volunteers themselves. I would overwhelmingly recommend this place to bride's looking for a chance to have a one-of-a-kind wedding where you get to call the shots and make it your own – Great Gatsby, vintage with a modern twist, country chic - the possibilities are endless and the team at Kuhs will really help make any dream a reality. We knew what we wanted when we chose Kuhs Farm, somewhere with heart and that's exactly what we got.
