Wonderful Venue; Wonderful Service - An Eventective User from Saint Louis, Missouri

TDGF was wonderful to work with. My wife (then fiancee) and I booked both our wedding ceremony and reception there in a hurry when our prior scheduled venue became abruptly unaccommodating. We picked this place because, apart from its unique feel and artsy beauty, the staff was very accommodating to our requests. they have a list of suggested vendors, but you aren't limited to a small group of contracted service suppliers, as with many, many other venues. The venue itself is beautiful inside, always covered with an array of glass art and complementary pieces, but the neighborhood can be hit-or-miss. This part of Saint Louis is currently on the upswing, and TGDF itself is very secure (Security Officers are provided to watch cars during the event, at no cost). Cody Meirick (Event Manager) handled all of our numerous requests with grace and expediency, and was a joy to work with. Jim McKelvey, co-founder, stopped by during our setup time to check on everything and actually came back for the reception (we invited him that day), took pictures, and chatted with our guests. My wife and I, along with each member of our wedding party, actually made a paperweight during our reception--how many other places provide a service like that!? Parking is decent, there's bar service on-sight, and it's hip. For a unique, memorable experience, we definitely recommend TDGF and staff. When you pay them a visit, be sure to check out the custom bathrooms.
