Hawthorne House is situated on eleven beautiful acres in historic Parkville, Missouri. Parkville is a river town known primarily for its history and quaint shops, and is conveniently located only 15 minutes from downtown Kansas City and the Kansas City International Airport. Plenty of close hotels make Parkville an excellent location for both in-town and out-of-town guests.

Outdoor Wedding Venue & Gazebo

Hawthorne House is well known for both our beautiful outdoor weddings and our indoor chapel weddings. The grounds are professionally maintained with your wedding needs in mind, and the photographic opportunities are endless. As you drive up to the Manor House you have the feeling of leaving the city and entering a country estate.

The gazebo was selected for its beauty and suitability for wedding ceremonies. Imagine walking off the porch of the Manor House and up the aisle between rows of white wooden chairs to join in marriage with the person you love. The gazebo is the perfect setting for early evening ceremonies.

Hawthorne House Chapel

Our beautiful non-denominational chapel is nestled in the woods close to the entry of the estate. The chapel, which was built in 2003, was architecturally designed and constructed to fit with the turn of the century look of the estate. The chapel seats 250 guests in custom-made pews. Both the east and west walls of the chapel boast six-foot high gothic windows. A turn of the century, round, stained glass window, salvaged and restored from a European church, adorns the south alter wall. Another salvaged and restored gothic style stained glass window greets your guests in the entry of the chapel. It is the perfect place to hold a wedding ceremony.

Hawthorne House chapel is climate controlled for year around use.

The Emerson Room

The Emerson Room is our stunning wedding reception room that was added to the east side of the original Manor House in 2003. As you enter the Emerson Room, you can’t help but notice that the room was designed to meet all of your wedding reception needs. An elliptical staged area is surrounded by glass windows to showcase the head table. Shimmering Italian crystal chandeliers enhance the lighting of this area. There is a two-sided bar for your guests’ convenience and a dance floor for dancing the evening away. A loft area overlooks the room and provides for additional seating. Your guests will enjoy going outdoors and sitting on the southern style porch, watching the sunset and admiring the natural beauty of a country estate. The Emerson Room will accommodate up to 300 guests for a buffet or plated dinner reception.

The Manor House

The estate’s original Manor House is 112 years old. In 1997, the Manor House was completely renovated with your wedding and reception needs in mind, including dressing facilities for the bride and groom. The office is also located in the Manor House. Read less

Working with The Hawthorne House has been a dream. They are extremely kind, helpful and knowledgeable. As soon as we walked in and met everyone, we knew this was the place we wanted to get married. Their response to emails is extremely timely and they have everything on site that you could possibly imagine. They are definitely top knotch wedding venue in Kansas City. Their venue is impeccable and their grounds are fantastic. I would recommend Hawthorne House to anyone who wanting a wedding in a scenic venue.

It is hard to put into words what Hawthorne House was to me on my wedding day. It was more than just the venue, the staff really knows how to make you feel special and they help you every step of the way! The venue space itself is beautiful and accommodating to whatever you are wanting. Della and Adonna are both wonderful ladies that actually care about you and want your day to be special and everything you always wanted it to be. They take the time to talk you through everything and answer any questions you have, no matter how silly it may seem. The staff takes a lot of the stress out of planning your wedding, which allows you a chance to enjoy your planning process all the way up to the big day. I couldn't have done it without the help of Della and Adonna! Thank you ladies so much for making my dream wedding a reality! :)

My husband lived 1200 miles away when I was searching for our wedding venue so my father went every where with me to help make a decision. We went to around 15 venues and felt that all of them were just so-so. Either their yard needed to be better kept, their carpets needed to replaced, and so on. We kept finding reasons to not use them. When we finally pulled up to the Hawthorne House, we just couldn't believe how beautiful and well-kept it was. Then when we walked in there was no turning back. We couldn't imagine celebrating with our friends and family anywhere else- it was perfect. THEN, we met Della and fell absolutely in love with her. We booked our date that day and we could not have been happier with our decision. Between Della and Adonna, every question we had about planning a wedding (which was a lot) was answered very quickly and always with additional, helpful advice. There was not a single hiccup in the day because of them! Not to mention the food was amazing and the service was perfect. If my husband and I had to do it all over again there is no question in my mind that we would choose Hawthorne House. They took care of us better than anyone could have through the entire process.

Hawthorne House was the first venue we looked at when looking. It was so enchanting that I knew I had to get married there! I loved the grounds, the people, everything. I couldn't have asked for a better wedding venue. It was stunning. All of our guests couldn't stop talking about what a gorgeous place Hawthorne House was! I loved that the Chapel and Reception venue were on the same grounds. I loved being able to take all of our pictures on the grounds as well because they have some really beautiful places for photos. The staff at Hawthorne House was simply amazing. So helpful and willing to answer and crazy questions we had throughout the planning process!
Absolutely would recommend them :)

The Hawthorne House was amazing! I found their website online and booked them without having seen the venue in real life. When I finally did see it, it was better than I could have ever imagined! It was so beautiful and perfect! The staff was incredible and went above and beyond to make our wedding day exactly how we envisioned it to be! The staff answered all our questions in a timely manner and did everything they could to make our wedding day exactly what we wanted! The reception was perfect, too! The food was delicious!! We had family with serious food allergies and they were so careful to ensure no cross contamination! Staff was so sweet and understanding they took away any possible stress. I highly recommend this venue!

Hawthorne House was the perfect spot for our June wedding, but it was the service that left the most lasting impression after we got married. Della was available for any and all questions I had- she was quick to respond and had all the information I needed at the drop of a hat. Adonna was a godsend the day of the wedding. She took care of every detail and made sure my husband and I had a drink in our hand at all times. She even made a sign for gluten free cookies for us, helped bustle my dress and was available for anything else we needed. I can't recommend Hawthorne House enough- we got so many compliments not only on the beauty of the venue but also on the food!

The Hawthorne House was the venue of my dreams. I didn't even know it was there until I got engaged and started looking at my options. If I had it all to do over, I would choose the HH again. They took care of everything and made it so easy. The property is beautiful, the food is delicious, and everything is so convenient since it's all in one location. While it is expensive, the HH is worth it. I have zero complaints about them. Very helpful staff who took care of everything we needed and we had the venue all day and didn't have to worry about another wedding the same day since they only do one wedding per day.
