Venue Setting

We are the proud winner of ‘Best Wedding of the Year 2013' Below is a little bit about us, our pricing and what it includes: On your special day, the property is exclusively yours from 10am until 11pm - Typically other venues like to be able to book two clients a day, but we prefer a more relaxed approach and think you deserve the whole day. We also include an opportunity earlier in that week for you and the immediate wedding party to come out and rehearse your ceremony to make sure you are perfectly comfortable and relaxed for your big day ahead. We also offer the use of the property for you both to come out with your photographer to capture some beautiful images to use for your ‘Save the Date’ or ‘Engagement’ photos.

Most importantly…. we wouldn't dream of having our clients worry about ‘what to do’, ‘who to call’, or ‘what comes next’: included in our rental is your very own Vendor Coordinator, Renee Joshu, who helps you select your vendors, secure pricing, set appointments, tastings, put together orders, your schedule, seating charts, diagrams and timeline for your day. All of that is included in our cost.  Our Vendor Coordinator can also be hired to be your "Day of" Coordinator if you have not already engaged a wedding Planner for the day. If you would like to give Renee a call to ask her about specific vendors on our Preferred List, types of food and budget questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to her. What makes us stand out from the rest: We are a private historic 150 acre estate and farm located just 25 minutes north of central Saint Louis.

Each year we host a limited number of events and cater to a clientele seeking a more personal and unique experience than volume-based commercial venues are able to offer. Our clients appreciate fine food, customized rentals and the additional services and activities we offer that enhance your guest’s experience. We are an exclusively outdoor venue located on the Missouri Bluffs, just overlooking the Confluence. Our property is iconic, one of a kind; known for its gorgeous landscape, quaint farm, stunning rock garden and scenic vistas, as well as its secluded privacy. With a view from the river bluffs that is beyond compare, we have many different scenic backdrops for the setting of your ceremony. We take pride in ensuring that our weddings are relaxed, elegant and beautiful, utilizing the gorgeous open spaces for lawn games, luxurious cocktail hour layouts and for the evening celebration under bright shining stars. Our pricing is as follows: $3700 for Saturday events and $3000 for Friday and Sunday events Being an outdoor venue, we utilize an exclusive tent and luxury restroom trailer vendor. Although these are not included in the facility rental, we are able to leave the tent up for extended periods of time so that the price of renting a deluxe reception tent is substantially much less than if you needed to rent a tent just for the day at another outdoor country venue.

The same applies to the Luxury Restroom Trailer. The tent and luxury restroom trailer pricing is dependent upon your size of event as well as guest needs. (Doing it this way, our clients get so much more for their money.  We have thoughtfully put together our Exclusive and Preferred Vendors to suit every budget and help you create the perfect experience for your wedding.  To help make your event unique to your personal style and taste, we also rent vintage and unique tables, chairs, decor, furniture and staging items (see vintagefortheday.com or facebook.com/vintagefortheday). As we are also a real working farm, we are able to offer some really fun additional services that can be added on to events (hayrides, bonfires, petting zoos, animals for use in photography, carriage rides and so on...) At Kuhs Estate & Farm, we offer gorgeous wide open country charm, right next to the city. Not only will your guests be dazzled by the beauty and style of your event, but with such a short drive time, they can stay later to enjoy all your thoughtful planning and the unforgettable moments of your perfect day. We are 100% confident that we are the most unique, iconic and magical place in our region to host your event. Set up an appointment to visit us and you'll see why.
