SUNLIGHT. THE PERFECT WEDDING ELEMENT.
Welcome. Thank you for wanting to know more about Kuhs Estate and Farm private event space. We’re so pleased that you do.
If you’re engaged, newly or not, ‘Congratulations to you both’.
Whether we meet, or your story unfolds elsewhere, we wish you great happiness on your journey together.
Planning a wedding is a wonderful experience. Much like life, it should involve people who truly care about you, are like-minded, who understand and empathize with you, whom you admire and feel comfortable collaborating with, and who, when really needed, have the integrity and the sincere desire to lift you up and help you shine.
“Come on…are you serious?” you say, and our answer is “Yes. Yes we are”.
There is a great difference between what you do for a job and what you do for love, and the simple truth is that what we do and how we do it isn’t a job. We are not venue owners or investors far removed from daily operations, or catering managers or event coordinators who switch venues like musical chairs. We are owners, operators, managers and inhabitants and we are absolutely an integral part of every event.
From touring, planning, delivery and set up, to event execution and personally greeting and welcoming your guests, we are on site, helping out and answering questions until the very last person has left. This is a labor of love and it shows. We are dedicated to our land and what it has to offer as an exclusive private property that is never open to the public. Many venues do double duty as a space open to the public while also hosting you and your guests. That is not what we do. Your event is the ONLY event on your day and that makes it tremendously intimate and special.
Our 150 acre estate and farm has been in our family for a century. On the other days of the week it is a real working farm with animals and the things we grow throughout the year. It is our work, our passion and piece of heaven that we truly cherish.
Since the first wedding we have photos of in 1931, we have been home to unforgettable events, special occasions and celebrations. We are blessed to work with clients who more often than not, become friends. We aren’t simply a ‘venue’ for the day; we are a gateway to a story that doesn’t really end.
Our clients are always welcome back and some return to plant a tree for their day, or come back for anniversary pictures, baby bump pictures, family picnics, holiday and even volunteering and farm life. Some have fallen so in love with the farm that they bought houses next door, have moved to the farm and now also call it home, or spend their free time here enjoying farm life, animals, horseback riding or whatever interests them on their weekends. Some even come back to help with other weddings. The connections and friendships we make mean a great deal to us and our sincere welcome is for the many years to come so that we may watch their lives further intertwine and grown. It doesn't feel right to get to know people so closely while helping them plan for the best day of their lives, then turn it off because the day is ended. It is a doorway we want to leave open.
Each day we wake up to see the sun rise over The Confluence of the mighty Missouri and Mississippi, and we are reverent of what a symbol it is for not only our city, but our region as well. We can't help feel that weddings also are a great confluence of forces that merge and become something even greater than before.
As you look around at all the choices you have; locations near and far, urban and rural, elegant and simple, we want you to select the spot where you picture your life beginning together. Yes, even if it is not with us. You deserve to be as happy as you possibly can be. We believe we offer something unique and rare that cannot be found anywhere else. It's the most perfect spot in our world and maybe it's the perfect spot where your story as husband and wife begins. We'll let YOU be the judge, and we look forward to meeting you!

The BEST venue
Words cannot describe our gratitude and love towards Kuhs Farm, Elizabeth, Nick and family. Our wedding at Kuhs was absolutely perfect and full of so much love and happiness! Elizabeth and Nick were exceptionally helpful from the moment we met. They felt like family friends we had known forever, and they welcomed us into their Kuhs family with open arms! Elizabeth is so organized and makes planning a wedding (even during Covid) an absolute dream. I never once felt stressed about the planning aspect because she was there to help guide me every step of the way. Elizabeth and Nick go above and beyond for every wedding, and ours was no exception. Every single detail was beyond what we could have even imagined. Their farm is absolutely stunning at any time of the year. Their care and support for us and everyone else is astounding. They followed the county’s covid guidelines and made sure everyone felt safe during this strange time, and they also made sure everyone felt the love and excitement of our wedding! If I had to plan another wedding during a pandemic I would plan it with them at their venue. If I had to plan a wedding not during a pandemic I would plan it with them at their venue. Bottom line, I would choose them again and again as our wedding venue. Everything was absolutely perfect that day thanks to them. Everyone who attended our wedding has not stopped talking about how breathtakingly beautiful and amazing Kuhs Farm was!! I recommend this venue to anyone and everyone looking for the most perfect, unique venue. Much love to Elizabeth, Nick, and the rest of Kuhs family!Sent on 11/14/2020

We got married at Kuhs this past August, and they were nothing short of amazing from our first site visit a little over a year ago, to our wedding departure the evening of our big day. So much personal attention to detail. We were absolutely amazed to see it all set up and in place when we arrived that day. So thankful that we choose Kuhs Farm. Strongly recommended by us. Thanks AgainSent on 09/21/2018

Recently took an engagement client out to Kuhs Estate & Farm for their photos. There's nothing bad to say about this location....its a hidden gem and beyond beautiful. The owner was kind enough to give me a tour of the property prior to my clients arriving and was extremely helpful and kind. I'd highly recommend this location to any bride looking for a peaceful and tranquil wedding venue! Not to mention its a gem of a location for a photographer!Sent on 05/09/2018
