Classic St. Louis Wedding Venues
We are so excited for our first wedding show of 2015 to be at the Chase Park Plaza that we thought we would feature two of St. Louis's most glamorous, historical venues on the blog. The Chase Park Plaza on North Kingshighway Boulevard and the Coronado on Lindell Boulevard. They are just minutes from each other so you could easily plan a day to visit both of these exquisite sites.
The Chase Park Plaza
The Chase’s legacy began in 1922 with the elegant Chase building, originally built by and named for Chase Ullman. Legendary hotelier Sam Koplar started construction of the Art Deco style Park Plaza seven years later. In the 1950’s the Chase really hit its stylish stride - the Chase Club was widely known as one of the leading night clubs in America and hosted such big band acts as Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope and Jerry Lewis. Just in time for the 1956 Miss America contest, an outdoor swimming pool was built where the original entrance stood. This stirred up quite a scandal, since the "scantily-clad" ladies could be seen from the busy street.
The Chase can provide the perfect location for a small, intimate affair up to a grand event of 1,000.
The Empire Room provides a cozy atmosphere for smaller receptions or is ideal for a wedding ceremony. This classic venue has a spectacular dome ceiling, crystal chandelier and a working gas fireplace.
The Starlight Roof is located on the 11th floor and offers breathtaking views of Forest Park. This beautiful room features walls of windows and two charming terraces that are a perfect setting for photos. The reception space consists of the Zodiac Room and The Starlight Ballroom. The rooms can be reserved separately or together and they are considered one of the top wedding sites in St. Louis.
The Khorassan Ballroom is well known as one of the most magnificent and historic grand reception spaces in St. Louis. This venue has hosted presidents and dignitaries from around the world for decades. High ceilings, perfect acoustics and lighting, an elevated stage with a lift, offer endless options for your special event.
