Knowing your wedding day will be one of the most important days of your life, Hermann Hill set out to create the ideal venue - one that would fulfill the vision of any bride. We presented our architect with the assignment to design a spectacular venue and he did – Hermann Hill Chapel.
Hermann Hill Chapel which can accommodate about 220 guests, was designed with panoramic Missouri River and dramatic sunset views in mind.
Silk ferns or white floral bouquets are provided for the large candelabras at the front of the Chapel, or brides can choose to have our florist create custom fresh bouquets. We can also provide a clergy and a pianist as a part of any wedding package.
At the end of each ceremony, double doors are opened for Hermann Hill's Signature Champagne Toast. The bride and groom uncork a bottle of champagne off the balcony while servers pass out champagne or sparkling grape juice to all your guests.
The Bride's Room is a lovely gathering place for the ladies in your wedding. I has mirrors galore, a place to hang long gowns, a private restroom, clothes steamer, and shoe bench. A fireplace provides a great backdrop for photos, and supplemental air conditioning keeps everyone cool while getting ready for the ceremony.
The Groom's Room has a more masculine feel. Amenities include a big-screen TV, reclining couch, and a refrigerator stocked with complimentary beverages. It, too, has a supplemental air conditioning unit. A private door with access to the deck leads to the side chapel when it's time for the ceremony.
The Media Room is the control center for lighting, sound and all technical aspects of your ceremony.
The River Room our smaller reception and meeting area, accommodates up to 50 guests. This area is also where coupleas hold planning sessions with their Wedding Coordinator and vendors.
The Bride's Closet holds a wealth of options in reception table decor', including both satin and organza chair sashes and table overlays. White tablecloths and napkins are included with all our packages. No rentals needed!
Hermann Hill's Commercial Kitchen is equipped to handle complex multi-faceted meals for hundreds of diners. Our chef helps couples create a custom menu.
A Full Bar Service with spirits, beer, wine and frozen beverages is available in the climate-controlled Atrium. We offer three levels of bar pricing - top-shelf, select and value. A Beverage Bar with non-alcoholic drinks is standard with any package. Our top-shelf bar option includes a Gourmet Coffee Bar with liqueurs. Bottled water is provided for guests as they are leaving the reception.
The climate-controlled Pavilion, our larger reception area, can seat almost 300 guests, with room for a DJ or band and dancing. The crystal sconces and chandeliers, which add a touch of elegance, can be dimmed. Windows encompass the entire north and west walls of the Pavilion. Shades that block the afternoon sun can be reaised so that guests can enjoy sunset views.
The Gazebo provides a dramatic backdrop for photos, especially at sunset. Some couples choose to have their ceremony here. We can provide Gazebo seating for up to 100 guests, whilc standing room is virtually unlimited. In the winter, eagles often can be seen soaring over the ice-filled river.
The Patio gives guests the opportunity to enjoy the view and the weather outdoors. Some couples park unique vehicles in this area.
Riverbluff Cottages are popular lodging options for honeymoon couples and wedding guests. Best of all, they are just steps away from the Chapel. Amenities include king beds, six-foot jetted tubs with aromatherapy fireplaces, rain forest/steam showers, see-through gas fireplaces, and flat-screen TVs. Each Cottage has a large deck or patio, overlooking the river, with a hot tub and gas grill. Your Cottage deck is another great place to view both the sunrise and sunset.
Unity Falls is located at the entrance to Hermann Hill Village. Two separate streams unite, symbolic of the union of a man and woman during the Wedding Ceremony. This is also a favorite spot for wedding photography.
The Personal Chapel is in a wooded area at the top of the hill. Modeled after European chapels, this is a quiet area where couples can reconnect. This has become a favorite spot for wedding photography, especially the "First Glance".
Celebration Point offers couples and their guests an additional wedding photo opportunity or a gathering spot before and after rehearsals and ceremonies.
This is why the Hermann Hill Chapel, River Room, Atrium, Pavilion, Gazebo, and luxury Riverbluff Cottages blend seamlessly to create the perfect setting for your unforgettable Wine Country Wedding.
