A Tuscan Dinner....Riverside


On a balmy summer evening guests gathered riverside for a Tuscan themed dinner at The Lalumondiere.  Amidst flaming torches and candle light, as the Big River rolled lazily by, the setting was complete for a time of gathering and laughter.  Add the beauty of the stars, the pleasure of good wine, a menu of gourmet delights reminiscent of the Tuscan region of Italy, and you have an event to linger in your memory for years to come.


Linda Rivard, one of our favorite St. Louis photographers, was kind enough to supply us 
with a few photos of this remarkable evening.  Another fine example of the diversity of The Lalumondiere as you plan your event.

The Cabana...

A friend just mentioned the fact that one of her favorite spots at The Lalumondiere isn't included in our photos.  I have no idea how that occurred as the cabana is my favorite spot as well!  Thanks Debbie.  


There are so many choices of spots to sit back and relax here but when I really want to spend time with special friends, visit with guests, or grab a book for some quiet time, it happens in the cabana.  I can only thank my visits to Miami for the idea of its creation.  Everyone should have a cabana!

Spring is on the way!

It's time to move on from scenes of winter snow and begin the watch for the first signs of spring here at The Lalumondiere.  Soon the crocus' and daffodils will be announcing their arrival by peeking through the thawing winter gardens. At times their heads may be laced with late winter snow, but we know they are the harbinger of sunshine and warm days to come. Here at The Lalumondiere we are keeping watch and anticipating their arrival. It's time to make lists for the nursery for the flower beds and boxes.  .

Eleanor Krautmann & Matt Tiefenbrun



  We are honored that Ms. Eleanor Krautmann & Mr. Matthew Tiefenbrun have chosen 'the Lalumondiere' as the location for their wedding scheduled for September 25th, 2010.  This early fall wedding should be as charming as are the two of them.  The leaves will just be beginning to turn here at 'the Lalumondiere'.  The air will reflect the distinct aroma of autumn and the vibes of two people very much in love.  


  Matt & Eleanors' engagement story is a delight!  They have agreed for me to the include the link for others to enjoy.  It will tell you a lot about the whimsical Ms. Eleanor and why we think this wedding is going to be creative, unique and fun!



  Thanks to you both for allowing us this privilege.

Here in Byrnesville, The Lalumondiere 
sits under a blanket of snow.  She's waiting patiently for the spring thaw, the flowers in the planter boxes, the flash of green in the trees to return, and warm lovely sunshine. Aren't we all awaiting the same here in the Midwest? 

The spring of 2010 will mark her debut as a gathering spot open to the public for use as a rental venue.  For years, she has hosted events such as weddings, family reunions, anniversary parties, picnics and blues music, wedding and baby showers, retreat gatherings, and quiet times for those seeking solitude. In 2007,  and Big River provided back drop for portions of the film "Saving Shiloh". The Mill's history is varied and rich.
