This work is our passion—we love what we do.



    If there is any time that a couple deserves a crossover from reality to fantasy it is their wedding day.

    My name is Sheri Steffens, owner of the locations that encompass Heart Events, and creator of the Cinderella Bride.Heart Events is a culmination of my knowledge, and the knowledge of the great professionals that work with me. Since opening in 1993, Heart Events has been the destination for thousands of wedding couples, as well as corporate and family events in both the St. Louis and St. Charles areas. I myself have overseen 10,000 weddings and receptions alone. Weddings have greatly changed over the years, and it is my mission to stay ahead of these changes, and even be the face of change in the wedding industry.This work is my passion; I love what I do and I love watching your wedding unfold into everything you envision it to be—and more. I have been blessed to share my passion with so many wonderful people. This premise is not only the foundation of Heart Events, but the inspiration behind our Cinderella Bride program, as well. The Cinderella Bride program affords special brides the wedding of their dreams at no additional cost to the wedding couple.I look forward to helping you create the wedding of your dreams.

Kuddos to Kristen for attention to detail, and the staff that night keeping the room clean. Everyone made us feel cared for and that we were important which I know is hard to do when you do this all the time! Affordable and uniquely beautiful.
