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

Loved everything about the Hawthorne House and their staff. They thought of everything! Very well organized and accommodating! They even got a safety pin for us just minutes before the wedding started when a button fell off a tuxedo! I am so happy we chose Hawthorne House, many wonderful memories of my daughter's beautiful wedding! If I had another daughter, I would want to go back to HH for her wedding! Love! Love! Love!

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at The Hawthorne House in August. Perfect is the only way to describe our experience. Della was amazing to work with. She is so helpful and makes the whole process stress free. The bridal and grooms suites upstairs are perfect for getting ready. I had hair and makeup artists come on-site and there was plenty of room for my large bridal party to all get ready and hang out. The events of the day all ran smoothly and the wedding coordinator did a great job keeping everyone on schedule. We had a buffet dinner and people were commenting on how good the food was all night. I can honestly say there isn't one thing I would change about my wedding day, The Hawthorne House was truly perfect!

Where do I even begin!? I got married in July and I couldn't be happier with the results at The Hawthorne House. Della is the girl you want to talk to about anything from when you pick your date to the day of, she is there for absolutely everything. When picking a day for the big day make sure you plan for a least a year in advance depending on the day you want. I had a Friday wedding, though I was very hesitant about it being on a Friday, it was the best decision I could of made. A Friday wedding at The Hawthorne House is a little cheaper. Also, I got to set up everything that I needed to set up the day before, on Thursday which was such a big help. They do have a wedding coordinator that you meet with a few weeks before the wedding which she was very helpful. She's there from the beginning of your big day to the last person leaving that night. Pricing is a little high but you defiantly get your moneys worth here. You do get to pick certain packages that can defer your price. As in if you wanted appetizers, an open bar & what you wanted at the bar, etc. For the craziness for the day of they do have two separate rooms for the groomsmen and bridesmaid. The bridesmaid room is such a help because you can get ready there and not leave the venue the whole day. Overall, I really don't think I have anything negative about The Hawthorne House and would suggest this to anyone looking for a beautiful location for the big day!

First off, I can't say enough good things about the Hawthorne House!! I was an out of town bride and Della went above and beyond to accommodate and help me with all the details. My plan from the beginning was to have an indoor wedding in the chapel followed by the reception. Last minute (the day of the wedding) we changed our minds and wanted it outside. That was "no problem" and they had it set up. It was so wonderful to not have to worry about changing locations either. We even got ready there. Really, I couldn't have dreamed of a better wedding! It was flawless!

We had both our wedding ceremony and reception at the Hawthorne House. The staff did a great job throughout the process making sure things went smoothly. They were prompt in following up when we had questions leading up to the wedding. On the actual day, Adona did a great job - the timing of events was so smooth and without a hitch! We also really enjoyed the food. The best part about the Hawthorne House is the setting. Our pictures turned out beautifully! If you're looking for a venue that will think of everything, Hawthorne House is definitely the place.

When my husband and I got engaged in the summer of 2013, I already had my heart set on the Hawthorne House as my venue. My sister had her wedding reception there and I was blown away by the beauty of this place. Dela and the rest of the staff made planning our ceremony and reception so simple. They were always so friendly, professional, and helpful during this busy and hectic time. They all went out of their way to help us and make this experience very special for us. Everything the Hawthorne House had to offer was ideal! They have separate bridal and groomsmen rooms upstairs from the reception hall for the wedding party to hang out and get ready in which was very nice! The chapel was the perfect size and very charming. We were able to decorate how ever we wanted and were given plenty of time to do so. We had a live piano player that sounded amazing in there! The house and the land it is on is gorgeous! It made for the most beautiful pictures. The inside was absolutely stunning! When the candles and chandeliers were lit, it was like a dream. The music sounded great in the reception hall and the dance floor was big enough to fit both of our families who all love to dance. Everyone had such an amazing time. Everything was so organized and the entire day and night went so smoothly which takes a lot of stress away from a nervous bride. I couldn't have asked for more. I couldn't imagine having my wedding anywhere else and I strongly recommend it to any new bride and groom!

I looked at a few places for my wedding but once I visited Hawthorne House I knew it was the right place. The chapel & Emerson room were perfect for what I had envisioned and the day was absolutely perfect - there is not one single thing I would change!!

The staff of Hawthorne house was very accommodating and easy to deal with. They offered suggestions when asked but were not the least intrusive. I am very happy with my decision and highly recommend it to anyone considering it!
