I need help with a budget-conscious venue. I'm looking for somewhere preferably with some outdoor space, that will let me use my own caterer and bartender. I am planning to have a brunch-time wedding. We'd like to have both the ceremony and reception at the site.
We looked at the Hawken House in Webster Groves and were almost 100% set on it as it is a great value, but you don't have access to the facility until 10 am, so there is no way we could set everything up and be ready to go for an early wedding. We are planning to have our wedding on a Sunday, so I doubt we'd be able to get in early as they'd likely have another wedding or event there the night before. Any ideas? Really anywhere in the metro area is doable if its the right price.
