We hired Degner Studios for our wedding we went with love story, ceremony, speeches, and vignette, When we showed our love story  video at our wedding there wasn’t a dry eye in the venue, 



Leopold's Mississippi Gardens is the premier Venue on the Mississippi River! 

The staff is amazing! They help you out every step of the way! Plus there venue is GORGEOUS! From the dining area to the bridal & groom rooms, the ceilings, the details in this place and what was put into this place- simply amazing! I like to say it's vintage with a modern twist. Go see it for yourself!
