Best Outdoor Missouri Wedding Venues

A Guide to the Best Outdoor Missouri Wedding Venues

Are you planning an outdoor wedding in Missouri and still need to find a venue? Missouri has no shortage of beautiful locations for a breath-taking outdoor ceremony. From rolling hills and vast forests to alluring vineyards and rustic barns, Missouri has options for every couple.

Here are my top picks for the best outdoor Missouri wedding venues:

Haue Valley

Located in the rolling hills of Pacific, Missouri, Haue Valley offers a gorgeous backdrop for a lovely outdoor ceremony. One of my favorite things about this venue is that they let you take photos with the cows located on their property! The venue features an ivy wall, ruins, pond, and acres of greenery that make this rustic venue perfect for a romantic outdoor wedding.

Missouri Botanical Gardens

With multiple outdoor ceremony location options, Missouri Botanical Gardens is a great option for your outdoor wedding in any season. The outdoor event space options include a formal garden, a rose garden, and a pond. The gardens are open year-round and offer a beautiful backdrop for any outdoor wedding.

The Four Seasons Hotel

This gorgeous hotel has a rooftop outdoor wedding space that provides the St. Louis Arch as your ceremony backdrop. The view alone makes this one of the best outdoor wedding venues in St. Louis. The hotel has beautiful gardens and a large outdoor pool area that can be used for ceremonies and receptions. The hotel has a variety of indoor event spaces available in case of unfortunate weather.

Tower Grove Park

This outdoor park is the perfect place to have an outdoor wedding ceremony and has multiple options. The ruins are a popular ceremony backdrop but there are gazebos and pavilions to choose from as well.

Whether you’re dreaming of a rustic chic wedding or a sophisticated, elegant affair, Missouri has no lack of beautiful outdoor venues to choose from. I hope this guide helps you find the perfect location for your dream outdoor wedding in Missouri. If you are open to indoor venues as well, check out my blog post below!

She is very positive and responsive and open to any new ideas. She even stayed a little extra to take more pictures. The pictures were perfect and she captured all the moments. Me and my family loved them!! She also worked really hard to get them a little early, which I really appreciate. I would definitely recommend her!!

"Morgan was amazing!!! I loved working with her."

She is sweet, easy to work with and came prepared with poses and direction. She took the time to view our initial chosen park location prior to our session and suggested a different location due to the scenery dying out in December. She is gifted with her camera and has a natural ability to capture real moments. Follow her lead and you’ll love the memories created from the magic she captures! 

"Morgan was extremely responsive from the beginning. "

I was stuck on a budget and was planning my wedding with the date coming right up with no photographer booked yet. Even though my wedding was on such short notice, Morgan said she could do my wedding pictures and fit my budget. The pictures she took are stunning and I can’t stop looking at them. 

"I had my wedding pictures done by Morgan and I am so happy I did! "


This is not just a talent, but a calling. I was searching for a photographer for my 18th birthday and she took the assignment and did more than just extra credit. I am truly pleased and this will not be the last photoshoot with this amazing human being! 

"This woman is a work of beautiful art.  "
