The Journey Home is the perfect place for a picturesque wedding, reception, and/or rehearsal dinner with close friends and family. We have magnificent facilities for a very affordable price. The base price includes the use of the barn, mansion, and the entire 5.5 acre grounds. We also offer overnight accommodations for 21 guests. We do not currently require you to use specific vendors or limit the minimum number of guests you invite.

Whether the activities take place inside the beautiful home, outdoors surrounded by nature, or in the rustic barn, the memories will last a life time. The layout of The Journey Home gives you several venue styles. A couple may have:

• A romantic sunset wedding on our beautifully landscaped front lawn
• A large outdoor wedding overlooking the beautiful horizon from our expansive south lawn
• A rustic wedding or reception in our historic tobacco barn.
• An intimate ceremony by the fireplace
• A regal wedding in our elegant front room complete with crystal chandeliers and curved stairway perfect for the bride's entrance.

We suggest a visit to The Journey Home to discover our beautiful and unique wedding site. We are only 15 minutes north of the Kansas City International airport and we look forward to showing you what The Journey Home has to offer.

Please call or email Laura Leibman, General Manager, for an appointment or to answer any questions you may have.

This venue is absolutely beautiful and I have received so many compliments from our wedding. Cindy that runs The Journey Home is a wonderful, caring and helpful person. The home that sits on the property is stunning and very accommodating, we had our wedding party of 20+ people staying at the home and it was wonderful quality time spent together. It was important to me to have somewhere that everyone could be at the same time and hang out throughout the weekend of the wedding and I didn't want to spend a lot of time moving in between locations for getting ready, taking pictures, the ceremony and reception. We did it all in one place and it was so beautiful. The flexibility of the venue is what makes such a difference. So many places are so strict and that is what made me choose The Journey Home.

The Journey Home was a beautiful place to have our wedding. We had our rehearsal dinner Friday night, set up and stayed the night at the house. The next day, we got ready there and had our ceremony outside under a tree and our reception in the beautiful barn. They were very accommodating and helpful the weekend of the wedding.
We had some difficulty renting tables and chairs, but overall they were easy to work with.
Value wise it would be nice if table and chair or other things were included. It seemed there was lots of extras we could add on to the bill if we wanted to use them.
I would recommend them to a friend, but not if you aren't wanting to set up and take down your event. I liked being able to set up the way I wanted and we had wonderful family and friends to help.

The Journey Home is an absolutely amazing venue. It was the best decision we made in our wedding planning. The house, land and barn are indescribably gorgeous. It was so great to have the people we love with us all weekend and the staff at the Journey Home are spectacular. Laura was the most wonderful host, ensuring we had everything we needed, assisting to make everything run smoothly and doing what she could to make sure everyone was having a great time. I would love to go back to the Journey Home and highly recommend it to anyone planning a country wedding.

Brian and I hosted our wedding and reception at The Journey Home it was amazing. From the moment we met Laura, she made us feel like we were part of her family. No matter what we needed Laura made it happen. She gave recommendations on vendors, ideas on different things and even was the officiant for our ceremony. She went above and beyond all our expectations. She helped make our dreams come true.

The venue it self is beautiful. We used their house for the rehearsal and a few of us stayed overnight, They have really made the house feel as if we were in our own homes which was nice. It was great to unwind from all the planning and get ready for the big day. Our ceremony was in the field between the house and the barn. The grounds were perfect and our pictures are beautiful. Then for the reception we moved to the barn. We easily had almost 200 guest inside with plenty of room of a large dance floor, catering, a bar and DJ.

I cant say enough about The Journey Home. You will not be disappointed. The venue is amazing and Laura is the greatest person to work with! 5 stars is not a high enough rating for how happy we were with them.

Our guests just raved about the setting - beautiful home and landscaping! The barn was the perfect place for a casual but elegant reception for our 180 guests - even room for dancing! And even more importantly, Laura was quite exceptional in managing all of the activities making sure our family totally enjoyed the experience. She is professional but yet so warm - felt like she was part of the family. I would definitely recommend The Journey Home for any event!

Robertson Wedding- June 8, 2013
My husband and I were married at The Journey Home on Saturday, June 8, 2013 and it was everything him and i had hoped for and dreamed of! It was aboslutely amazing! The Journey Home is the venue to hold your wedding due to it's beautiful surroundings and the manager, Laura, is so easy to work with and is very quick to respond to any questions/issues you may have!! When my husband and I first started planning our wedding we orignally had booked another venue that kind of fell thru. We stumbled across The Journey Home and fell in LOVE with it! We are now thankful everything worked out the way it did :) I don't have one bad or negative thing to say about The Journey Home. It has everything to offer and with Laura there to help every step of the way and make sure all goes smoothly is an added bonus :) she's super sweet and so helpful. and when the bride gets stressed out over something, she's always there with her calming words and warming smile. A person can't go wrong booking this as their wedding venue because it truly has everything to offer!!

Due to a wedding the night before our event decorating was kind of chaotic but evened out by the end. The grounds were beautiful and the house is great for the wedding party to prepare for the walk down the isle. The rustic feel and charm of the barn really added that special feel to the reception afterwards. I would recommend this to family and friends that were not on a tight budget.

The Journey Home was absolutely amazing and totally worth the money! From the start, the vendor was very helpful and great to work with. The venue itself is so beautiful! The barn was perfect for our reception and we were even able to fit all 260 people comfortably, with only having to place an extension tent on the back for the food. Our guests kept complementing on the beauty of the venue and even our photographer was impressed with how great the venue was. I was very pleased with how everything turned out and can honestly say I wouldn't change a thing about it!:)

WOW!!!

From the beginning, Laura responded promptly to all of our questions and changes. Words cannot describe what an amazing experience we had once we arrived. Very clean, spacious, and they really have thought of EVERYTHING you could possibly need. All the beds, furniture, and decor were elegant, tasteful, and comfortable, We had 5 families staying there for a wedding in Kansas City, and had the rehersal dinner of over 50 people at the house. The kitchen was SPACIOUS and well stocked... Very comfortable and accomadating. On a scale of 1 to 10, this is a 10.5. I cannot thank you enough for making such a memorable time for our family and friends. They welcome families, teenagers, young children, everyone.
