1890 Weddings + Events


Serving Kansas, Missouri, and the Greater Kansas City Area 


Welcome to 1890 Weddings + Events! Nestled near Platte City, Missouri, our enchanting venue is renowned for its historic charm and scenic beauty. Located just 10 minutes from Kansas City International Airport and a 20-minute drive from downtown Kansas City, 1890 provides a country-style wedding with award-winning amenities. 

Allow us to introduce you to the magic of our 1890 Outdoor Wedding Ceremony location, an idyllic space situated beside our historic 1872 Victorian House (remodeled in 1890). Both the outdoor wedding ceremony area and home rest steps away from our grand ballroom reception area as well as our newly designed cocktail barn, keeping your party close to the action.

Ample Seating:

Customizable Arbor:

The arbor provides the perfect backdrop for your unique vision, ready to be decorated to match your wedding theme whether you choose flowers, drapes, or a combination of both.


Stones for Bridal Party:

  • Elevate your ceremony with thoughtfully placed stones for the bridal party to stand on, creating a natural and intimate setting that helps all standout.
