The most BEAUTIFUL wedding venue in the KC area!
Thank you Hawthorne House for making my wedding dreams come true! From the moment I turned onto the property for the first time, my jaw dropped. Everything about the venue is stunning. We had our ceremony in the chapel, which was a DREAM! Bright natural light, wooden pews, grand piano, white exterior, big staircase, a rod iron bridge surrounded by trees -everything was so simple and beautiful, & that isn't even all of it! The reception space - the wrap around porch, bridal suite with a BALCONY, hardwood floors, natural light, gold chandeliers - I mean I could go on and on, but it was a literal dream come true. Everything was so beautiful that we hardly used any additional decoration besides flowers and centerpieces! Thank you Elizabeth for answering so many questions, being a joy to work with and allowing us to have our wedding at HH! We still have people telling us how beautiful the venue was, even 5 months later!Sent on 11/08/2019

Our wedding was a DREAM COME TRUE!! Hawthorne House was absolutely gorgeous and our guests raved about it!
We lucked out and had perfect weather, allowing us to use the porch and lawn which looked beautiful and green in early Sept. The chapel and reception hall are so pretty on their own that they did not need a lot of decor -- we used candle votives and greenery as our center pieces and it took my breath away when I first saw it!
Not only was the space exceptional, but Adona and her team were organized, friendly and quick to reply to ALL of our crazy questions!
The bartenders moved fast and kept our guests happy.
I would highly recommend using this venue, especially if you want to use the outdoor space! Thank you for making our wedding the best day ever!!Sent on 09/28/2018

We always enjoy working at the Hawthorne House. The venue is beautiful and the staff is friendly and great to work with!
I always appreciate Hawthorne's organized style and professionalism. I always here fantastic compliments about Hawthorne House, from my brides that have been married there!
I am always thrilled when one of my brides chooses Hawthorne House for their wedding. The setting is beautiful, ample parking, easy access. Darla is a joy to work with and is always helping the brides/families with whatever they need. The dressing room is the best that I have ever been in at a wedding venue. As a hair and makeup artist, I need the space, lighting and overall accommadations but don't always have the luxury of having it. At Hawthorne House I have it. Not only is it wonderfully accommodating for me, it is for the wedding parties as well. There is so much space and comfort to be able to get ready. You won't regret having Hawthorne House as your venue on your wedding day.
