When planning a wedding, you want to avoid any unnecessary stress. Let these St. Louis-area venues take some of the work off your plate to make the big day as seamless as possible.

The Canopy 
At the DoubleTree by Hilton Chesterfield, wedding planners will find a new indoor-outdoor space called The Canopy, created as a flexible and beautiful venue for elegant events. The glass-walled space offers a private country club feel with the convenience of a hotel attached and access to the lovely outdoor gardens. At 6,000 square feet, the venue can accommodate up to 350 people for a seated event. Natural light floods into The Canopy through glass walls, brightening the vaulted, airy space’s neutral palette. Wedding guests can stay on-site in the hotel's 224 guest rooms.
