Lions and Tigers and Bears, OH My!

Thu, Mar 27, 2014


A few weeks ago, Palladium Saint Louis was transformed into the Land of Oz. From the yellow brick ‘road’ surrounded by ‘fields’ of poppies to floating hot air balloons and flying monkeys, upon entry guests were instantly transported Somewhere over the Rainbow.

What an honor it was to host Ronald McDonald House Charities for cocktails, hors d’oeuvres & a candy bar that would make the Lollipop Guild proud.

There may be no place like home, but coming together for a good cause is pretty sweet.

Dance, Dance, Dance!

Tue, Aug 20, 2013


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.”

December Raves

“Wow, I cannot even begin to describe how wonderful my experience was, working with Maggie and the Palladium. It was pure luck that I was able to reserve this venue, as there was only one date open for the rest of the year. I was living in Chicago and my wedding was in St. Louis, as soon as I became engaged my mom went to work and began to scope out venues, bands, florists etc. I began to look online at several places, and came across the Palladium. I had never heard of it before, but the pictures looked beautiful and just what I had in mind. As soon as I sent an email requesting information and available dates, I was told they were on the phone with my mom and she was  doing the same. We were told September 15th was the only date available for the year, so she went there right away to check out the place. She called me and me raved about how gorgeous the space was, not being able to get to St. Louis, I trusted her taste and told her to go for it. That was the best decision we ever made! The venue itself is absolutely  stunning, Maggie and the rest of the staff were incredible. Words cannot express how wonderful it was working with Maggie, from recommending an incredible wedding planner, to laying out a time line of what needed to get done, and just being in constant correspondence. Her organizational skills and wedding knowledge were out of this world, she put me at complete ease and made the wedding planning so enjoyable and stress free.  She was so accommodating and just an absolute pleasure to work with. The Palladium itself was also just as great as Maggie, I received so many compliments on how beautiful it was and how it’s so different then your typical wedding venue. The food is a whole other story! I have never been to a wedding that I have enjoyed the food, until my own. I couldn’t believe how incredible it was and the service blew me away, I also received many compliments on the
food and service as well. There was not one negative thing I could say about the Palladium or it’s staff, and the pricing is completely reasonable. These
people are top notch and clearly know what they are doing. It was the perfect wedding and I owe that all to Maggie and the Palladium staff! I would recommend this place a thousand times over, these people are the best! Thank you Maggie and the Palladium for an unbelievable evening! If you are looking for an exquisite wedding venue, look no further. Thanks Again!”



“We celebrated our wedding reception at the Palladium on Saturday, November 17, 2012. From the first moment we stepped through the doors of the property to tour the venue, we were mesmerized by the history & architectural design of the Palladium. As an event planner, I am very particular with the actual execution of the event & it is hard to let go of the control! The Palladium not only eased any anxiety I had, but exceeded every expectation! The food was spectacular & our guests literally celebrated all night long! I cannot wait to have the opportunity to return! Maggie is the most professional & kind person I have ever had the pleasure to work with and would recommend the Palladium time & time again for any and all events!”



“Hello Melody!!

I hope all is going well.  I just wanted to write an email to thank you again for all you did at the Palladium and for making all of my dreams come true that night.  Over and Over again we hear from the guests at our wedding how spectatular the Palladium was and how it was the BEST wedding they have ever been to! Haha! I am referring the Palladium left and right to all of the new brides that just got engaged over the holidays.  I have even had people asking me on facebook-that I’m not even friends with- where my pictures were from.  The entire experience was just incredible!! AND THE FOOD!!! =)

I also know you have a vendor list and I wanted to share some of my vendors with you that I have had the MOST wonderful experiences with.  One of them, obviously was Brian from Rebel.  He was amazing.  It was like he went inside of my brain and figured out exactly what I wanted! haha.  He is so talented.  I will keep recommending him!

The other one-was where we had our rehearsal dinner-…- Mangia Italiano, on South Grand-and it was spectactular having it there.  We had our own private room with bar and there was even a big t.v. on the wall that we could put a projector up to and play a slideshow-haha..we love the slideshows.  It was amazing.

My last one would be my d.j.- Rockstar Dj’s are professional and hands down one of the best dj’s i have experienced, even just being a guest at a wedding.

I just wanted to shoot you some recommendations because you had some wonderful suggestions for me. I understand how tough it is to pick vendors for your wedding.  I now know that personal experiences are what matter.

Again, Tim and I want to thank you for all you have done, and I will sing Palladium’s praises- especially yours =), because it was a fantastic reception.  I could not have asked for more.  Thank you Melody!!”

Jessica Evans Layton


“The event was wonderful and everyone had a great time.  The employee reviews were fantastic with absolutely no negative comments.  Melody was a huge help and her suggestions were well presented.  Thank you so much for helping to make this one of our best Christmas parties ever.”

John Henry Foster Co.


“Thanks for following up Maggie. Everything went smoothly, the food was terrific (we received a lot of compliments) and the atmosphere was great.

Thanks for helping us throw a wonderful holiday party. I specifically want to share our gratitude for the tenderloin upgrade. Doug and I heard quite a few folks commenting on how delicious it was.   Take care and have a safe New Year!”

Palladium Saint Louis Showcases its “Scene”

Mon, Dec 10, 2012


We can’t stop talking about how beautiful Palladium Saint Louis was this past Saturday night.  The “Scene” was set from the moment guests stepped from their cars with the building aglow from the outside and inside!

Guests began the evening with an Artisan Cheese and Chianti Pairing featuring sharp cheddar, havarti + blue cheeses with flatbreads, mixed berries and nuts displayed atop a bolla of Chianti.

The partying continued into the night with guests enjoying grilled beef tenderloin with cabernet demi-glace and pan seared scallops with a chive lemon butter to keep up their energy level.

“The Burn Station” set the scene for dessert with Bananas Foster and creme brulee.  Luckily guests didn’t have to choose between the two temptations!  Inspired by the 2012 Governor’s Ball at the Oscars, the Palladium Saint Louis and Contemporary Productions staffs brought the same style and mood to this event.

Congratulations to everyone involved for creating another spectacular event!

“Melody Buckner and the entire staff was an absolute delight to work with. Everything we ever dreamed of about our wedding day was definitely exceeded; thanks to the execution of the Palladium.  Not only can we not stop talking about the reception and venue, our wedding guests continue to rave about the evening and location. What a beautiful venue and a staff that perfectly complements. Thanks again!”

Kerri Reynolds


“Maggie and Melody, it’s incredibly rewarding to work with professionals like you who remain helpful, positive and cheerful in any work situation.  Thank you for all of your help and coordination to make last night successful.

I look forward to having the opportunity to work with you again soon.”

Julie Pole

Washington University School of Law


“The Palladium is a wonderful venue. The staff was superb.  Melody is awesome, she put all my fears to rest.  Everyone was amazed with the venue and the food. It was the perfect wedding for our daughter. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, the only drawback is that we don’t have another daughter to host a wedding reception there!”

Ellen Reynolds


“I am lost for word’s.  Kelly and Ryan’s reception was MORE than we had expected.  The only negative response we had was, It ended to soon.  The party could of gone on all night.  I know Smash was ready to!  Please let Butler’s Pantry know that they have surpassed all expectation’s, food unbelievable.   The beef was every just as delicious as our the steak we had at Scape (rehearsal dinner).

Bill and I were worry free all evening.  Thanks you so much for making the evening, the fairytale wedding Kelly wanted.

Maggie, again Thank You so much for the Amazing Evening.”

Nancy Kener


“Hi Maggie, It was nice meeting you in person tonight. You were a pleasure to work with and a true professional. Everyone loved the “football players” art gallery.  I still can’t figure out a
way to shorten our program. It was only 3 hours this year. Speaking as a senior parent, it was very special.  Thanks for everything.”

Victoria Chabot


“Ryan and I want to thank you and your team at the Palladium for making or night so incredibly special! The beer cocktail was a huge hit! We can’t wait to read all of our guest’s suggestions!

The food was exceptional, our guests were captivated by the whole venue and it made our wedding day perfect! Thanks again for everything!”
