10 Gorgeous Barn Venues for your Kansas + Kansas City Wedding

 Image by  Nagel Portraits

Living in the Midwest we know that there's no shortage of barns, farms and wide open spaces! While barns traditionally house cattle or livestock, many are being transformed to accommodate something a little grander. We're excited this trend has caught wind and that barns are being built or beautifully restored so that all of your barn wedding dreams can come true.

1. Stone Hill Barn - Augusta, KS

 
 

This 7,400 sq. foot barn describes themselves as traditional, classic and elegant and we do not disagree! With Stone Hill Barn located outside the city limits, you have plenty of land to explore on your wedding day. This venue also has an outdoor/indoor option for ceremonies.

2. Bellwether Barn - Scott City, KS

 
 

Need a space that holds a handful? The Bellwether barn comfortably accommodates 400 guests with room to spare on the dance floor. This wedding venue has been voted countless times as the setting with the most picturesque views, and it's no joke! We particularly love the traditional wooden exterior that makes this barn a true classic. Western Kansas has a venue worth driving a distance for!

3. Cedar Tree Barn - Parsons, KS

 
 

                 We love this venue's exposed trusses, traditional barn doors, antique furnishings and warm, intimate event space. A bride that's looking for a barn with "rustic ambiance" will find it at Cedar Tree Barn! This venue will hold 170 guests, however the barn can squeeze in a little more depending on your layout.

4. Thompson Barn - Lenexa, KS

 
 

If you're a bride who can't choose between modern and rustic, the Thompson Barn has a unique blend of both! An all brick venue, updated with the latest technology has the spot rated, "most exciting venue in Johnson County." This barn will hold approximately 200 (very happy) guests at your event!

5. The Barn at Schwinn Produce Farm - Leavenworth, KS

 
 

There are many amazing perks and compliments to mention with this traditional handmade barn! The owners truly had weddings in mind throughout the venue planning and building process.  We love the grass-like turf that covers the lush outdoor ceremony site - say goodbye to bugs and mud. With both indoor and outdoor sites for ceremonies, you'll never have to worry about the weather raining on your parade!

6. Historic Taylor Barn - Lawrence, KS

 
 

Built in 1879, this incredibly beautiful and unique limestone barn stands by a mission "to bring your wedding dreams to life with a one-of-a-kind rustic and historic venue." The ceremony setting takes place outside the barn, and dinner is typically out on the terrace under the romance of stringed bistro lights. Some may even say that you might mistake the evening and think you're starring in a Nicholas Sparks movie.

7. Cardinal Creek Farm - Leon, KS

 
 

Quiet countryside, here we come! For the bride looking for a classic and elegant space with a sweet blend rustic country, Cardinal Creek Farm has that for you and your 200 guests. We love the bridal suite on-site and the 80 acres of panoramic Flint Hills that the property sits on.

8. Rustic Timbers - Viola, KS

 
 

"A beautiful, woodsy and fairy-tale like setting...for brides looking for charm and appeal you just can't recreate!" Rustic Timbers proclaims. If you're striving for an intimate barn wedding with 150 guests or less, stop right here. You will be pleased with the owners and their sense of southern hospitality, friendliness and willingness to go the extra mile. When checking out the reception barn, you'll find draped chiffon, twinkle lights and gold chandeliers that create a space for even the most classic of brides!

9. Stone Creek Ranch - Rantoul, KS

 
 

This working ranch nestles up on 40 acres of spacious prairies filled with wildflowers and enchanting forests. Just 35 minutes from the KC metro, you'll find yourself lost in the quiet surrounding the outskirts of a bustling city. This venue is a stunner with 35' tall ceilings draped throughout with dreamy, twinkly string lights casting ambiance over the hard oak floors. It's definitely a beauty!

10. Mildale Farm - Johnson County, KS

 
 

This equestrian inspired home-like barn has vintage sophistication and a clever combination of attractiveness that speaks to any bride. You will be welcomed by five miles of three-rail white fencing (like you see in the movies) and nine man-made fishing ponds... who could ask for a better backdrop!? All of this and more sitting atop 22 acres of rolling hills, meadows and epic woodlands. Have a larger guest list? No problem! Mildale Farm can house 400 guests with its 8,672 sqft. of usable space. That equals to plenty of dance room!
