The Caramel Room at Bissinger’s // STL Wedding Venue


As a St. Louis boudoir photographer, I meet lots of wonderful women with great stories. A lot of these women are soon-to-be married and do their shoots for their soon-to-be husbands. Because I am an STL photographer, I feel I have a wealth of knowledge about the best vendors, such as amazing wedding venues. This post will be my first in a series sharing that knowledge. I want to help all of those STL brides find the best gems that St. Louis has to offer! Our first stop is at a magical wedding venue that is both unique and elegant. Today I’m taking you to The Caramel Room at Bissinger’s in St. Louis, MO.


The Caramel Room at Bissinger’s is a working chocolate factory in the heart of St. Louis. It truly captures the essence of hip modernity, but is still special enough to captivate your guests and keep them talking about your big day long after the fact. Being a chocolate factory, it should come as no surprise delectable chocolate treats are yours for the indulging in! And, trust me, my history in chocolate-eating can vouch for the amazing tastiness of their product. Along with the treats, they have chocolate-infused decor that doesn’t translate visually into something too over-the-top or kitschy. It’s a perfect blend of sweet and chic.

It is one of St. Louis’s newest, most sought-after wedding venues, and once you step inside, it’s easy to see why. With the gorgeous natural light, robust hardwood floors and sparkling chandeliers, you can imagine how well the pictures will turn out! Also, they have a breathtaking skyline view, as well as a beautiful terrace and scenic view of the river. Yes, this place really does have it all! Here’s a little more about what this wedding venue has to offer when you book.

Benefits of Booking

The Caramel Room at Bissinger’s has so many awesome aspects going for it as a St. Louis wedding venue. Along with the cool ambience and the special, different vibe to it, it has many amenities. I love venues that have both an indoor and outdoor space available for utilization. With the ability to have a rooftop wedding, The Caramel Room tops the list as one of my all-time favorite STL wedding venues! I mean, what an awesome concept. But, if you do want to use the outdoor facilities and it happens to rain or snow unexpectedly, their expert staff is always ready with a contingency plan.
