The Jewel Box in Forest Park
1 Wells Drive, McKinley Dr
St. Louis, MO 63110
The Jewel Box in Forest Park is one of the most beautiful sites in St. Louis for wedding ceremonies. It also is one of the most popular.
The Jewel Box has opened after a $3.5 million renovation, which makes it an even better site for weddings. The 11-month renovation included replacing the mechanical systems and adding air conditioning so it will be comfortable in the summer months.
A catering room, a large wedding party room, and new restrooms have been built so the building can be rented for wedding ceremonies, wedding receptions and other catered events.
The floral display area has been changed to include a large fountain and water feature that can be removed for weddings and receptions. The permanent floral displays will be supplemented with seasonal flowers from the city’s greenhouses, grown and planted by the Flora Conservancy of Forest Park.
The Jewel Box is available for wedding ceremonies in 1½ hour increments.
