October Wedding Raves

20. October 2014


“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!”

Armenian tradition took the floor at a Palladium Saint Louis wedding reception this July. Things got started at cocktail hour where traditional Armenian dishes were passed, such as Dolma, Cheese Boreg, + Lahmajoun, along with Palladium menu hors d’oeuvres. After guests were seated for dinner, the bridal party was introduced + entered the dining room performing Hars ou Pesa, a traditional Armenian dance. The entrance brought every guest to their feet in celebration of the newly wedded bride + groom.

To kick off the celebration at the end of dinner the Detroit based Nigosian Band took over and performed Armenian songs which kept the reception going late into the night. The guests danced for hours on end, even during band breaks when the DJ took over.

Vendors who contributed to this special night include:

Ravetta Photo Booth, St. Louis Transportation, Wedding Wonderland, Carol’s Corner, Complete DJ, McCarty Photography, + Nigosian Band.

Raves from the client…

“Our event was a great success. We had a wedding reception that went off without a hitch. The willingness of your kitchen staff to help serve Armenian Delicacies as appetizers, and as a sweet table was wonderful. You have received a great deal of advertisement in our community for your willingness to allow such an arrangement.

Our event planner, ( Melody Buckner) was an outstanding planner. She was helpful in the initial process of planning, but her work on the day of the reception with executing the plan she helped craft was wonderful She is a great asset to the Palladium.”

“The evening couldn’t have been better; beautiful lighting, top-notch staff and amazing food!”

Tim Layton


“There is too much I want to say, and no energy left!!!  People here until 10 p.m. last night , and the bride just left an hour ago.  The wedding was INCREDIBLE and people went insane over the Palladium.  Everyone danced the entire night and were sad to leave at midnight.

You were absolutely AMAZING in your organizational skills.   More words to come later. I need a good night sleep to totally describe what this event meant to all of us.  You were the best and I will write or recommend your work to anyone who asks.”

Gratefully, Mary Ann


“From the minute we walked in the front door of The Palladium, we just knew this was going to be a special place, we just didn’t know how special! We were in the process of planning our daughter’s wedding.  The space is spectacular and the evening of the reception, as guests entered, they just stood in amazement as to how beautiful everything was. The food was delicious (not what one typically gets at wedding receptions). The service was like a perfectly orchestrated piece of music. I would compare the service to that of being at a five star restaurant. We had approximately 200+ guests and people sought us out to tell us how impressed they were with everything. The shining star in the planning of this event was Maggie. She worked with us from start to finish. “Sometimes” planning a wedding can be stressful—she removed the stress. Whatever we needed, we asked and she took care of our every wish.  There aren’t enough adjectives to describe just how wonderful it was to work with her. She actually made it fun. She is quite an asset to their operation.   The entire event was what dreams are made of, and we are so very happy that this dream came true, thanks to Maggie and the entire staff. We have recommended The Palladium to friends and family, and will continue to do so.”

“The Palladium is a phenomenal place to have your wedding and I would highly recommend it to anyone. Shortly after I was engaged, my mom and I started scoping out places in STL and we were immediately overwhelmed at the prospect of planning my wedding. From the moment we met her, Maggie put us both at ease and assured us she would help us manage all the moving parts. The end result was incredible and even better than I had imagined. I had my wedding at  the Palladium over labor day weekend and it ended up pouring down rain.   Although we had been prepared for an outdoor ceremony, Maggie and the staff at the palladium, including Brian, the Rebel Florist (highly recommended) moved everything to the indoor plan without any stress or problems. The food was great and the decor was beautiful. Having the venue, food, and flowers all in
the same place really eliminated my stress and made it much easier to plan.  Highly recommended!”

9/1/12 Wedding


“Everything at the Palladium was top notch for our wedding.  Maggie and her team made sure that every single detail was covered! They even worked with my bridesmaids who surprise my husband and I with a photo booth the night of our wedding! The food was absolutely AMAZING! All of our guest kept raving about the fabulous food and service!! I could not have asked for a better venue! Thank you Maggie and the Palladium team!”

8/31/12 Wedding


“I absolutely loved having our wedding at the Palladium!  Everything was perfect.  We really loved the signature cocktails, split level cocktail hour and dinner.  We continue to get compliments from all the guests on the food, presentation and taste were top notch!  I would definitely recommend having your wedding or event at the Palladium to anyone.”

“I cannot thank you enough for giving my husband and I the wedding of our dreams. The staff at the Palladium is top notch – by far the best in St. Louis special events. Thank you thank you thank you!”

Erica Graham


“Repeatedly we have been told that we had the best wedding food ever.  It was presented fabulously and tasted devine.  The Beef Tenderloin was perfectly prepared for everyone in attendance.  Importantly to Aneta and I, Maggie and Melody stepped up and helped us through every little detail.  Their ability to make suggestions and then help us carry it out was crucial to the event.
We have also been told it was the best reception ever.  I know I am prejudice, but this was our third wedding of the summer, and the Palladium made it possible for us to standout and not be just another wedding.  Thank you Palladium, and especially Maggie and Melody for making it all possible.”

“Maggie Eichwald coordinated our wedding reception needs perfectly with those of her employer.  She assisted us whenever we asked, and worked to solve every problem/issue for us in a positive manner.  The wait staff was beyond courteous. They were very professional and very helpful in solving any issues or problems that occurred during our event set-up and during the evening, whether expected or not. The food served was better than at any fine restaurant, and our guests pointed that out to us throughout the evening.  The venue itself was a fantastic “space” that we could decorate to host a truly unique wedding reception.  The finished room far exceeded anything we could have created in a hotel ballroom, and our guests expressed their compliments on the decor all night long. The Palladium was an elegant locale for an evening that our family will treasure forever.  It was an evening that we hoped would be perfect for our daughter and her new husband, and we were not disappointed.  Thank you!”


“AMAZING work ladies!  I can NOT possibly put into words the response we have gotten from the amazing planning and execution of this week’s Summit.  From comments like “who was that caterer – I HAVE to have their name” to “how did you find this place” to “the hotel room was more beautiful than I thought possible and then the meeting room was even better than that” the comments just kept coming and coming.

So BRAVO one and ALL. Thank you for your big concepts, your attention to detail and your ability to react to all the additions, changes and chaos this week.”


“Palladium was the perfect modern venue for our wedding. The uplights, the sleek chairs, the grey/silvery linens, etc. were the perfect backdrop for our wedding. Above all, Maggie was amazing to work with the whole time! I had countless amounts of questions and she answered them all without complaints. We had our ceremony on the front lawn of the venue and Maggie helped us all get down the aisle. They had some landscaping done right before the wedding so everything looked beautiful! We were able to drop stuff off at the venue ahead of time and pick the stuff up the week after so it really helped with our day-of timeline. The food is amazing as well! Many of our guests have said it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding. Between the presentation and the taste, it was an absolutely amazing meal!”


“We love Palladium! Our guests said that it was the best food they’d ever had at a wedding, the staff was over-the-top helpful. I loved how the LED lighting allowed us to create a warm ambiance… and somehow, someway, Melody made us feel like we were her “ONLY CLIENT” because she was so attentive. Very impressive! Plus, Ricky is “Top Shelf” — The Best!!”

-Brookie Moore

“Everything was excellent.  Melody Buckner did an outstanding job and should be commended. I would definitely recommend The Palladium to others.

Thank you.”


“Thank you so much to team at the Palladium for working with me to extend the wedding reception hours on the night of 6/22/2012.
I was able to surprise my daughter with a band she really wanted, but had scheduling conflicts with the time.  Your flexibility and willingness to work with us made this surprise possible and this event unforgettable.
The staff was excellent across the board.  I can see no room for improvement.  Thanks again!”

-Butch Suntrup

I wanted to thank you and your magnificent team for a wonderful evening this past weekend. Allyson and I could not have imagined a better night! We, along with our guests, had such a great time! We have received so many complements on the event, and I wanted to pass those along to you. Everything was top notch, from the delicious food and prompt bar service, to the courteous and attentive wait staff. Thank you for making my wife’s dream wedding a reality! Many thanks to you and the entire Palladium staff!”

Near Record-Setting Fundraiser

26. March 2012


From left: Carol Voss, Tom Voss, Marsha Rusnack and Donna WilkinsonWe were honored to host Dance St. Louis last month for their annual Ballet Ball fundraiser where they raised nearly $200,000. This is the most money they’ve netted since executive director emeritus Sally Brayley Bliss’ farewell gala in 2006. Deb Peterson from had this to say about the event:

“Some 275 arts enthusiasts were on hand, dancing to the sounds of Arvel and Company. The crowd enjoyed a special dance performance by students from the Central Visual & Performing Arts High School, which was dedicated to the evening’s honorees, Marsha and Bill Rusnack. The Rusnacks’ daughter, Dr. Susan Rusnack, a surgeon in NYC, was on hand for the occasion with her husband, Andrei Duman. Michael Uthoff, executive and artistic director of Dance St. Louis, was also joined by an out-of-town guest, his daughter Michelle Uthoff, who was in from Denver…”

“Maggie and staff, we just wanted to express how much we truly appreciate everyone at the Palladium – our wedding was absolutely PERFECT! The service, food & atmosphere were incredible and we couldn’t have asked for anything better! Everyone truly helped to make our night so special and we can’t thank you more! Maggie, thank you so much for answering my countless emails and questions – you were fabulous and I couldn’t have done it without you! You helped make our dream into a reality and we are forever grateful! I cannot say enough wonderful things about the Palladium and everyone there – thank you again for a perfect and memorable night for both us and our guests!”


“All I’ve heard from everyone was ‘What a great event’ it was and ‘How much they enjoyed it!’ It was definitely a successful event!”


“Our main contact was Maggie Eichwald who was professional and always prompt in answering questions whether by e-mails, phone calls or in person. She was always accommodating and seemed at ease working with our staff and committee.

 This venue is first-class and the food was beautiful as well as tasty!

 We had a great experience at The Palladium and are appreciative to the owners, managers and everyone for accommodating us.”


 ”We could not have chosen a better venue for our wedding than the Palladium! We had ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all at the venue and the set-up was perfect for us and our guests. The upgrades that are included (linens, chairs, lighting, etc.) made life so much easier for us than having to rent those items out. The service and food was impeccable – our guests could not stop raving about every aspect! Maggie was extremely helpful and fabulous in every way! Even being extremely particular and a semi-control freak, she showed me so much knowledge and attention to detail, and it was great to be able to have so much confidence in her to take some stress away from myself. I could not say enough great things about the Palladium – no bride and groom can be disappointed having their wedding there! We had the most amazing day and cannot thank the Palladium, Maggie and staff for all they did for us to make it happen!”

“The food was exceptional and we received many many compliments.  The ambiance was perfect for our daughter and her husband – again received many comments about the unique mixture of history and modern style, all done with great class.  The staff was friendly and helpful.  When Melody left for the evening she told me and then pointed out the captain who would be replacing her should anything arise.  This was a perfect celebration and none of us (the bride/groom/parents) could have been more pleased.  I would be very happy to recommend this venue to family and friends. ”

Thomeczek Wedding, December 30, 2011


The event went just as planned and you are correct in that everyone really enjoyed themselves.  I have heard nothing but very good feedback about last night.  You and your staff were very helpful, easy to work with, and overall did a phenomenal job!  Thank you a hundred times over.  I will definitely recommend the Palladium to others…

“On behalf of everyone working so hard to make Gateway to Hope a success, we greatly appreciate your involvement in our second annual KaleidoHOPE: Hopeus Pocus gala held on November 19, 2011 at the Palladium Saint Louis.
The funds we raise are critical to the success of the Gateway to Hope Program. Since inception in 2005, we have arranged care and treatment for more than 260 breast cancer patients who are uninsured and do not qualify for government funded programs. Through a network of more than 150 partners and providers Gateway to Hope patients receive comprehensive high quality care at no cost. To date, we have arranged care for more patients in 2010 than we assisted in all of 2009.
Maggie, thank you for helping to ensure a most successful event. Your participation played an important role as we continue our lifesaving mission and make a difference in the lives of so many breast cancer patients who might not otherwise receive much needed care.”

“I have just returned from our Honey Moon and I wanted to thank you for an amazing wedding. It was absolutely amazing. You and Melody did a great job. You relived all my stress and made my day perfect. Obviously there was some snafu on our end but it all turned out okay.

I also want to thank you both for helping my in-laws load everything back into their cars. They were very appreciative.”

Wedding & Reception, November 2011


I just wanted to drop you a quick note thanking you for everything last night. We haven’t had our official de-briefing, but everything I heard and saw last night was absolutely positive.

Everyone was very impressed with the space. A lot of people there last night haven’t been to the Palladium before, so this was their first time. One person commented to me that he thought this event appeared more upscale than anything VCR has done in the past.

The only glitch from the facility standpoint was when the AV person let out video sound when someone was speaking. Otherwise, the AV went smoothly. The food and facilities all were good. The facility definitely has a ‘coolness’ factor.

Throughout the project, you’ve been a pleasure to work with!  Hopefully we will have the opportunity again soon.


 Vision for Children, November 15, 2011

“In all the busy of wrapping up the event, I didn’t get a chance to tell you how great it was working with you and your team. You made the entire process so easy and seamless. Thank you! It was a real pleasure.”

Grace Hill Settlement House Gala, November 12, 2011

“These are just a few of the comments I heard from our guests at Maggie and Chris’ wedding Friday night.  Everything was perfect….down to the smallest detail.  We can’t thank you enough for all your efforts in making this such a special evening for our family & friends.  When I pulled up to the Palladium and saw the pink lights highlighting the building, I just knew it was going to be wonderful night!

The decorations, the lighting, the FOOD (yum!!!!), the sound….it was just perfect.   People at work today have asked, “How did it go?”, and I’ve responded, “It was all that we could have wished for and MORE!”

Maggie, I am in awe of your organizational and managerial skills.  I don’t know how you managed to pay attention to all those different pieces and pull it all together seamlessly, but we are all very, very impressed.  If I didn’t know better I would say you even arranged for the beautiful weather!  Also, thanks for helping me get the fireworks organized—it’s because of you that Maggie & Chris’ evening was magical!  I can’t believe you remembered about the “to-go” food package for Maggie & Chris.  I handed it to them right before they left in the getaway car—I thought Chris was going to dig in right there!  He said, “Oh wow!  I just realized I’m so hungry!”  (He’s always hungry! Ha!)

I also want to give a special shout-out to all the Palladium personnel who took such good care of all of us throughout the evening.  Many, many, many guests commented on the attentiveness of the staff and how they were so helpful and friendly.  I couldn’t even count how many servers, etc. there were—they just appeared every time I even thought about something.  I especially appreciate all the attention they gave to the bridal party—helping to get them drinks, etc.  I would like to make sure they get a tip to let them know how much we appreciate all their effort.  How can I make that happen?

I know we need to “settle up”—let me know what I need to do.   Thanks again!

Jody Hartwig”

“Palladium was a fantastic place to have our wedding. From the moment we walked in, we knew that was where we wanted to get married. The space is beautiful and modern, which gives you a lot of room to be creative and add your personal touches. The sound and lighting systems were fantastic. The table settings (stemware and glassware), linens, and chairs were also great. The girls were extremely friendly and organized, and so hardworking! I couldn’t have asked for a better rep than Bridget. The food was absolutely delicious. We had a lot of variety to choose from, and it all tasted great. We got a lot of comments on how delicious the food was. In addition to that, the house wine is Alamos – our favorite! We love Alamos Malbec and Chardonnay, so that was a real plus. Everything from the space and design, to the food and details, to the service of the night was wonderful. I would highly recommend Palladium to all future brides!”

Wedding & Reception, October 2011


“Impeccable service, quality and event coordination. I had my wedding reception at the Palladium on October 7th, 2011 and could not have been happier with the Palladium’s execution. Maggie, the event coordinator answered every question I had within a few hours throughout the entire wedding process (and I booked them a year and a half out!). She also saw to every single detail and it went perfectly. The venue is absolutely stunning and makes quite an impression when you walk in. Finally, the food was delicious. All I keep hearing is how it was the “best wedding food” anyone has ever had! I would book my reception there again in an instant…And I am incredibly picky and particular!”

 Wedding Receptions, October 2011


“I just wanted to thank you for all of your help throughout the entire planning process, I could not have asked for better service (with my million quirky questions you were so generous to answer)! All of our guests were so impressed by the venue, the food, and the smooth execution on the event. You and your staff went above and beyond and made our event very special and memorable for us. I will be recommending and have been reviewing your venue for future brides because they need to know about this gem. Thank you again, our reception was absolutely perfect thanks to the Palladium Saint Louis!!!”

Wedding Reception, October 2011


“I just want to THANK YOU for Everything you did for the wedding on Saturday. It was a great, great party. I was so thrilled with how great the Palladium looked. I think that in the first 5 minutes alone of being there we must have gotten 10 compliments on how awesome the venue was. And the service there was wonderful!!! The lady (Andrea I think her name was) was helping Thomas and I and she was so sweet and made sure we had everything we needed. Everyone working was so polite and accommodating. And the food was unbelievable! SO many people complimented the quality of the food and said how great it was, and we have some tough customers in our group. I cannot thank you and your staff enough. It was perfect! I cannot imagine having had the reception anywhere else. I was so impressed how it looked when we walked in, I can’t even tell you. You are an amazing event coordinator. The space was everything I wanted in a reception venue. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I will refer the Palladium and Butler’s Pantry to everyone! I will also send you some photographs if you want them, I am happy to write any recommendation for your website or give you pics for the blog. Anything I can do, I would love to. I cannot say enough wonderful, positive things about the reception and venue and working with you.

Thank you again!!!!!”

How can I begin to express our pleasure with the event last night?  You guys did a fabulous job!

Thank you so very much for the efforts you took to ensure the success of our event.  We had SO many requests…so many changes – and you were gracious and accommodating always.

The space was so lovely – the food was delicious – and the lines were non-existent!  Thank you especially for that.

The “cupcakes to go” was just an added touch…you brought so much value to our event….Everyone was so pleased… 

Thanks again – You were both a pleasure to work with!”

Laurel, Corporate Dinner, September 22, 2011

“Thanks again for making our wedding on 9.10.11 the best ever.  Numerous people raved about the food (and drinks!) and how much fun they had.  You guys were absolutely amazing to work with.  Everything was so easy and I recommend you to everyone who is asking (and not asking!) about where to have their wedding/reception or event.  I’m sure I’m partial to my own wedding, but it was most definitely the best wedding I’ve been to and it had everything to do with how amazing you all at Palladium St. Louis were. 

Thanks again!”

I wanted to let you know that I filled out the survey but there was not enough space for all my comments…. a few more are below. Thank you for everything, it was a pleasure to work with you. I will be referring anyone I know having a wedding in St Louis! 

- service at the wedding was impeccable. The staff was professional, polite and very available to anyone who needed anything. And they worked their butts off all night. Very impressive and appreciative. I received multiple comments from my guests about how great the service was. I noticed that they also paid special attention to Justin and I and our entire bridal party. It was that little extra that made all the difference. One of the staff members overheard me say that I needed some water (I was talking to a guest) and next thing I know, the staff member had water for me. Extremely nice. 

- you already know how great the Palladium is but again, I received TONS of compliments on what an awesome venue it is. I obviously agree! 

- And the food….still receiving compliments on how delicious the food was. I literally didn’t hear ONE complaint about the dinner. People are always so particular about the food and people loved every bite. 

I really cant thank you enough – I thought the reception was amazing and that is thanks to you guys. I am being 100% honest that I don’t think I could have asked for a more perfect reception. THANK YOU!

I am sure you already have video of the Palladium but our highlight clip turned out very nice and I think it shows some nice clips of the Palladium and how much fun we had there -  I am still waiting on the photos from the photographer but I will send you any good ones of the Palladium. 

Thanks Maggie!”

We have received so many compliments from our guests- from the look of the space, to the efficiency of the staff, and everyone agreed that it was the BEST wedding food they have ever had! We could not have asked for a better place for oue wedding and reception, or a better coordinator to hold our hands through the entire process. It was such a relief to know that we never had to worry about a thing because you were always right there to organize, help ut out, and make perfect suggestions. Thank you again!”

“We held the wedding reception for our daughter Rachel at the Palladium on May 29, and I want to congratulate you on creating such a terrific venue.  Not only is the setting itself a perfect one for a big party, but your staff, and especially Maggie Eichwald, are terrific.

We worked on every detail of the party with Maggie, and she took care of everything perfectly.  I was very impressed by her responsiveness and follow through — and always with a broad smile.  She is first rate!  Your waitstaff was also excellent: well trained, solicitous, and unobrtrusive.

Congratulations on creating this “new” St. Louis landmark.”

I knew the food was going to be excellent and because Maggie made herself available whenever I had a question, I was confident that the evening would go off without a hitch. As someone who knows that nothing goes 100% the way you plan, no matter how hard you try, I must admit that nothing was out of place or order. Thanks again for all your hard work. I wouldn’t have changed a thing!”

“We have now had two great events at the Palladium. It’s always a pleasure to work with the staff, especially Maggie, who has been instrumental in making the events a success. Not only is Maggie a joy to work with, her professionalism, grace and problem solving skills have made it much easier on me to pull off a big event like our gala. Thank you!”
