A hidden gem in the CWE

The McPherson is an amazing venue. From it's former chapel-look with the stain glass windows to the incredible outdoor courtyard, it had everything we were looking for. Philip was a great host and ... Read more easy to work with. Many of our guests commented on how beautiful the space was. I would highly recommend the McPherson to anyone. It's a hidden gem in the Central West End.

Great venue!

The McPherson was the perfect venue for our wedding of roughly 120 guests. Philip was a great host, and very responsive to phone call and text message. He was present for the ceremony and made sure ... Read more things went smoothly. The venue is absolutely beautiful, and many people commented on how much they liked it. Additionally, it was nice to be able to have the ceremony and reception in the same location. One of my favorite parts of the venue is the bridal suite for the girls to get ready in the day of. We did our hair and make up there, had lunch and drinks, and generally had a great time. Additionally, most of our guests were in from out of town, and the location in the central west end was a great showcase for St. Louis. Russo's in their exclusive caterer, and the food and drink were quite delicious and presented beautifully, as was the room set up. However, in the planning phase for the reception, Kathy from Russo's was a bit difficult to get a hold of. That being said, Russo's did a great job and it was worth it to not have to shop around and find a caterer on my own. Overall, this was the PERFECT venue for our purposes and I would absolutely hire them again. Highly recommended!

The McPherson is amazing! Phillip was so incredibly helpful and accommodating. The venue is beautiful and the food, which is catered by Russo’s, was wonderful. I highly recommend that you order your ... Read more cake through them too. I had multiple guests tell me that is was the best wedding cake that they have ever had. I would 100% recommend this place to anyone.
