What Makes a Moonrise Wedding So Magical

Congrats! You’re engaged! Wedding planning can be a blast — but it can also be very overwhelming. Where do you begin?

Let the Moonrise take care of you as you say “I do.” Between our unique wedding reception venues, romantic couples packages and stellar service, you can relax in the assurance that your celebrations will be out of this world. Here are just a few reasons why having your wedding at the Moonrise is the best – and easiest – decision you can make for your big day.

Pick Your Space

Whatever your style, the Moonrise has you covered. Planning an intimate wedding? Our sophisticated Apollo 8 and Apollo 11 rooms are sure to tick all the boxes. Looking for something more dramatic? Our Gemini Room is a spacious, light-filled event space with soaring 12-foot ceilings and a three-dimensional wall that can be bathed in changing light colors to match your wedding colors. If sweeping views of St. Louis and outdoor access is more your style, our open-air, all-season Rooftop Twilight Room has the ideal atmosphere for you.

No matter which space you choose, contemporary decor and furnishings will create the perfect backdrop for your wedding. We work closely with couples and their loved ones to ensure every detail is personalized to their tastes and that their special day unfolds smoothly, stunningly and without stress.

Customize Your Day

Moonrise staff members work closely with engaged couples to plan out their special day, right down to the last detail. It’s our goal to make your wedding feel as unique as you are. After all, the Moonrise doesn’t do anything generic, bland or boring – ever!

Want to involve your four-legged friends in your big day? There’s no better place to do it than at our pet-friendly hotel! Environmentally-conscious couples can feel good about how our green hotel efforts will make their celebrations more eco-friendly. No matter what matters most to you, we’ll make sure that your unique interests are reflected on your big day.

Delight in Delicious Food and Drinks

After a busy day, we know the first thing you and your guests want to do is enjoy a fantastic meal. Forget everything you thought you knew about wedding food – our catering professionals specialize in tailoring one-of-a-kind menus to suit your individual tastes. Our team will help you craft your perfect menu, from phenomenal appetizers and entrees to creative cocktails.

Stay the Night

Local and out-of-town guests alike will love having their post-wedding accommodations in the same hotel as the wedding itself! Our rooms — with their pillow-top mattresses, rain showers, and other boutique hotel amenities — are the most comfortable way to unwind after a fun day.

Newlyweds are also in for an extra treat. When you utilize a block of 20+ guest rooms, the bride and groom stay the night of the wedding on us! Or, you can choose to come back for a complimentary night stay on your anniversary. Either way, you’ll receive our Big “O” package, complete with strawberries, champagne and breakfast in bed.

Be a Little Extra

Your wedding isn’t just an event – it’s an adventure! Why not make the most of it? We also provide the perfect spaces for a bridal suite, your rehearsal dinner, post-wedding brunch and more. With our central location in the bustling Delmar Loop – one of St. Louis’ most vibrant shopping, dining, and entertainment districts – you and your guests are sure to remember your wedding celebrations as some of the most fun they’ve ever had.

We leave no stone left unturned. Don’t believe us? Take it from all these happy newlyweds!

Even if you’re not planning a wedding right now, you’ll be given the royal treatment at the Moonrise. Whether you’re looking to host a party in our unique event spaces, enjoy warm-weather St. Louis rooftop dining, or simply enjoy a weekend getaway, we pull out all the stops.
