Kansas City’s Top 7 Outdoor Wedding Ceremony Venues


Thinking about having an outdoor wedding ceremony? There are so, so many venue options out there!! We personally love outdoor ceremonies, but there are a few things to keep in mind as you look for your wedding ceremony venue. Mainly, is there a back-up plan or space you can use if the weather doesn’t cooperate? Will you have to bring additional seating in? Will everyone be able to make it down the aisle in heels or will they sink into the ground? Luckily, most of the venues on our list of Kansas City’s Top 7 Outdoor Wedding Ceremony Venues check all of those boxes for you. 

Kansas City’s Top 7 Outdoor Wedding Ceremony Venues

The Pavillion Event Space

The Pavillion is easily one of the most unique outdoor wedding ceremony venues in the city. Its open-air chapel  has so many unique features, and is honestly an absolute gem that you must see. With its super white posts and beams, and modern black and white flooring, this venue is for any one that wants something modern but still elegant. Inside, their elegant ballroom is the perfect upscale reception setting.

The Bowery

Located in Spring Hill, The Bowery is an absolutely beautiful wedding ceremony venue. With a built in arbor and wooden pews sitting in front of a line of trees, their outdoor ceremony space is just dreamy. And did we mention they have a tented outside reception space too? It’s absolutely perfect for the couple that wants to spend their whole day outside in nature. We’ve also seen this amazing team completely transform their inside space at the snap of a finger to move a ceremony inside on a rainy day.

Executive Hills Polo Club

If you’re looking for an outside location that feels like it’s miles away from the rest of the world, but is realistically only a short drive from several hotels and the airport, be sure to check out Executive Hills Polo Club. This super sweet venue is housed in an old polo club (hence their name), that has an amazing wrap-around porch and super luscious side yard for outside ceremonies.

Farmhouse KC

If you’re looking for a venue that feels more modern farmhouse with a little bit of rustic, be sure to check out the Farmhouse KC Event Venue. This is a brand new venue that is absolutely beautiful! With a super spacious indoor space filled with shiplap, and beautiful chandeliers, and a wooded, but paved outside ceremony space, the Farmhouse KC has it all. And did we mention their super spacious bride and groom suites? This gem of a rustic venue is conveniently located in Independence on a dead-end road, where you’ll feel like you’ve completely left the city.

It’s perfect if you want to have an outdoor ceremony without leaving the heart of downtown.

Mildale Farm

Odds are you haven’t ever heard of this place, but have likely seen photos. Milldale farm is a little bit of a drive from the heart of Kansas City, but once you arrive you’ve got everything you need. Set on several acres of manicured farmland, your bridal party will have an entire house to yourselves to get read in before you head out the backdoors to get married in front of the pond. With brick-paved paths, a pond, and acres of green landscaping and trees, there are so, so many spots for photos in and around the venue. And the air conditioned barn is the perfect spot for a summer wedding reception.

Just 25 minutes from downtown KC, The Tobacco Barn Farm is an open-air barn venue.
