Testimonials

"Our weekend spent at The Journey Home was absolutely magical. The country setting was stunning and our entire wedding party (18! plus several significant others) stayed at the house with us. Our family and friends had a blast. The house was the perfect location for small rehearsal dinner and the barn held our 150 wedding guests with plenty of room. The setting was unique romantic- exactly how I dreamed our wedding would be. Tara and Cindy with The Journey Home could not have been more friendly, or accommodating. My husband and I are thrilled that we made the choice to book that venue for the weekend and still enjoy looking back on the beautiful photographs taken there."

"We visited a handful of venues before we went to The Journey Home and we knew instantly that this is the place where we wanted to get married! Tara is so amazing to work with and does everything she can to make your dream day come true. I can honestly say it was the least stressful part of our wedding. And not to mention the place is heaven on earth. We loved that we had it for the whole weekend and got to spend it with all the ones we loved. If you are on the fence about it, don't be, choose the Journey Home you won't be disappointed."

"After a 4-month engagement, I married the man I had been waiting for, for over 42 years! Because I never thought I would be blessed by getting married, I had never planned a wedding or thought about any of my desires for a wedding. However, the moment we stepped onto the Journey Home, we both knew this was the place! When we booked our wedding, the staff was on top of all of our needs. We immediately started planning the event. Within 2 hours we had the date and all the decorating plans completed. We booked the entire weekend in order to decorate and have our family and friends surrounding us during our special weekend. This extra time allowed us to enjoy every moment of our wedding, from setting up to spending time with our guests... especially those who had come from far away and the ability to stay in the home really brought us all together. The day was the most perfect day anyone could have asked for. The grounds were perfectly manicured and the sunset was perfect. The barn was so beautifully decorated and it was enchanting to even walk into it. From the moment we booked our wedding to well after our wedding, the Journey home managed every detail to our complete satisfaction. They still check in on us and we count them as our family. We were so very blessed to find this place... it made the day I never thought would happen be the day of my dreams."

"I couldn't have asked for a better group of people to work with to make our wedding day a memorable one. There are a lot of wedding venues in the Kansas City area, but I couldn't be happier that we chose the Journey Home. The property was perfect for accommodating our wedding party and offered the ability to have everyone stay on the property the entire weekend. I recommend the Journey Home to anyone looking for a great value, vintage/rustic but comfortable venue, and wide open spaces."

"The Journey Home was absolutely perfect for our June wedding. Tara was awesome and helped us through every step of planning. Our guests were blown away by how beautiful the property is and we had such a great time staying in the house with our wedding party. There literally could not have been a more perfect place for our wedding!"

"My now husband and I searched all over for the perfect venue. We were so happy when we found The Journey Home. It made it so convenient to have the venue the whole weekend and to be able to hang out with family and friends in one location. The house and barn are so beautiful and the scenery outside for our ceremony was breathtaking. Tara was wonderful to work with and the staff was very friendly. I would highly recommend The Journey Home!!"

"The Journey Home is an awesome place to have a wedding and here are a couple reasons why: 1) Beautiful Place - If you haven't seen the house and barn, go right now! The colonial house is cute and full of character with a porch, a cool staircase, and really has that cozy-house feel, which is great to let loose and be ready for that big day. 2) Very Spacious - Great for big groups. I was able to fit all of our groomsmen, bridesmaids, plus both families and even a few of our friends all under one roof. There was plenty of beds and even a big enough kitchen to make breakfast for us all. 3) Cool Barn - It's an old tobacco barn which offers such a cool feel and can easily adapt to any style and provides the perfect atmosphere for a party. We were able to hipster-up the place with big edison light bulbs and all the guests loved it! 4) Great Service - The service they offer is unbeatable. The day before my wedding there was a rainstorm which means tons of wind and water...everywhere. The next morning the tables and floor were all wet but the manager was so quick to fix everything, she was out there bright and early and before we knew it everything was running beautifully again. Overall, it was so worth it. Warning : if you see it, you will probably Love it!"

"We loved the Journey Home from the moment we pulled up! Tara was great to work with ( My wife did most of the planning :) We did the weekend stay and I would highly recommend it because it gave us enough time to get everything set up and make sure that nothing was forgot. I would highly recommend the Journey Home to anyone."

"My now husband and I rented the complete venue package at The Journey Home (House and Barn) for our wedding weekend. The house is beautiful with great amenities. Our entire wedding party plus a few friends stayed in the house the night before and having a kitchen the next morning made breakfast with so many people run very smoothly. The manager was a great help, very sweet, and always one step ahead. I felt she was totally in control which took a lot of stress off of the wedding day and days leading up to it. On the day of our wedding in ended up raining but The Journey Home team was great and made sure that plastic was up on the outside of the barn to keep rain and wind out. The day couldn't have been anymore perfect! I want to thank them for their assistance to make our day run smoothly. I would highly suggest this venue to any couple looking in the MO and KS areas for wedding venues."
