Saluting Military Brides and Grooms

28. October 2014



When duty calls, active members of the military don’t always have time to plan the wedding they want, much less the wedding they deserve. Now, with as little as one week’s notice, Palladium Saint Louis will host a ceremony and celebration that features five-star amenities at the special rate of just $1,776.

Palladium Saint Louis is offering exclusive use of their premium event space Tuesday through Thursday, subject to availability, to the men and women who serve our country. Up to 50 guests will enjoy all the essentials: tables and chairs, linens, china, flatware, glassware, and a five-star service staff. And, a fabulous menu!

Celebrate, dine and drink with house champagne for a toast, a non-alcoholic bar, a display of savory seasonal cheese and vegetables, one of three salad options, and one of three premium pasta entrees, and one of three chicken entrees, seasonal vegetables and rolls. The grand finale is a beautiful tiered cake, baked by Butler’s Pantry, giving the couple their choice from three flavors (chocolate, vanilla and mixed) with white icing.

This introductory package includes the use of Palladium Saint Louis for three hours including a state-of-the-art surround sound system with two microphones, customizable LED lighting indoors and out, Wi-Fi, four projection points and use of the house laptop computer.

“We want to alleviate stress and provide very specially priced, five-star wedding celebrations to our service men and women,” said Richard Nix Jr., President of Butler’s Pantry. “Especially in a short time frame, our men and women deserve a memorable wedding celebration.”

October Wedding Raves

“In my humble opinion, the service, atmosphere, cuisine & overall experience enjoyed at Palladium Saint is completely unparalleled.

The service…from coordinator to set up crew, door greeter to hors d’oeuvres passers, bartenders to wait staff, Chefs to all culinary assistants…the staff at Palladium Saint Louis are top notch! Jeanne, Melody & Nicole were with me, every step of the way in planning the reception. They each listened to my ideas and were able to expertly make suggestions here and there to ensure my (high) expectations were not only met, but exceeded. Every tiny detailed discussed in a year’s worth of planning was reflected & attended to…beautifully. On the day of, I was confident in being a guest at my own event – how rare! I also knew every single one of my guests were in great hands – all staff are so approachable, charismatic, professional and unbelievably gracious. I was delighted (and not a bit surprised) to get consistent feedback after the fact, how much my family and friends loved getting to know the staff.

The atmosphere…Palladium Saint Louis is such a special venue. It is completely unique in that you can go all out decorating to make the space yours OR you can simply show up and the space still stops people in their tracks. It’s a piece of history…it’s a contemporary marvel. Clean lines and lofty ceilings feel warm & inviting. Uses of metal & concrete are offset by soft LED lighting. This lighting, along with projection capabilities allow you to customize the room easily. There’s a view of downtown, there’s a ton of parking – it really just doesn’t get any better. There was nowhere else I could envision celebrating with my favorite people in the world.

The Cuisine…where do I even begin? These days everyone is a foodie in their own right & unfortunately ‘reception/wedding food’ has gotten a really bad rap. Palladium Saint Louis/Butler’s Pantry is changing people’s minds on this, one guest at a time! This talented culinary team has mastered the art of providing restaurant quality, customized menus, for hundreds. It truly is an amazing feat. I was thrilled to sit down with the Chefs early in planning and discuss some of our favorite meals, favorite flavor profiles. Chefs were then able to create the perfect hors d’oeuvres – fun & a bit whimsical, the perfect seated dinner – 3 elegant courses, the perfect dessert station – who doesn’t love modern twists on classic Hostess confections?? Guests are still talking about ‘that meal’.

The overall experience…if I had the chance to do the Wedding all over again, I wouldn’t change a thing. Palladium Saint Louis was/is the ONLY option in Wedding Venues that will knock it out of the park and exceed all of your expectations. Palladium Saint Louis ensured my Wedding Day was unforgettable, unbelievable and so completely perfect. I am forever thankful!”

Elegant Lavender Valentine’s Day Wedding

Elegant Lavender Valentine’s Day Wedding

Photos: Cindy Lee Photography; Venue: Palladium Saint Louis; Planner: Maggie Echwald with the Palladium; Gown: Allure Bridals from The Ultimate Bride; Shoes: Valentino; Groom’s Attire: Jos A. Bank; Flowers: Soulard Florist; Jewelry: David Kodner; DJ: Crucial Entertainment; Cake: Sarah’s Cake Shop; Bridesmaid Dresses: Custom dresses from Little Ruffles Bridal on Etsy; Hair: Rachel Shepard; Makeup: Stephanie Jacobsmeyer

Erica and John were married at the Palladium Saint Louis in St. Louis, Mo. on February 14. The bride looked stunning in an all-lace strapless gown with long wavy hair and a beaded trim veil. She carried a bouquet of roses, peonies, silver brunia balls, hypericum berries, and lamb’s ear. Her closest girlfriends opted for custom chiffon gowns in lavender and gray. The groom and his men donned gray suits with mix-and-match purple patterned neck ties. “I loved being hands on, fully involved in the creation and design of my wedding,” Erica said. “Though I drove myself crazy doing all the small projects, I would do those projects again!” The pair tied the knot in a big modern space with purple uplighting. A reception followed, and the wedding party sat at a head table. Other guests looked to the chalkboard to find their escort cards, where they were then led to round tables with hydrangea and curly willow centerpieces. “We strove to create a wedding which reflected our unique and individual personalities blended together as one,” Erica explained. The room was full of wintry details, including a snowflake light pattern that was projected on the wall. The groom’s little sister played Chinese music during dinner to keep guests entertained. After they ate, the newlyweds cut their three-tier cake adorned with flowers. Erica’s best advice? “Remember that the day is about you and your husband. Make it a reflection of yourself and your personality.” We couldn’t agree more! See the full board here.
