Beyond anything we could imagine...

The team at Mill Creek Lodge was incredibly helpful and VERY understanding through the struggles of pandemic wedding planning. We had to cancel reschedule two separate times (making that three different dates) and they were encouraging and supportive through the entire process. They made our wedding day so special and enjoyable for everyone. We could not have asked for a more fitting and beautiful venue. Highly recommend!!

Hidden Country Oasis

Mill Creek Lodge is a truly unique venue, we felt so lucky to have found it - the website does not do it justice, you must go see it for yourself! Tucked away into the rolling flint hills it offers a large property with a beautiful historic stone house and a two-story barn. The house has been restored and thoughtfully decorated with antique furnishings and details (which make for really special wedding photos). It has a ton of bedrooms for friends and family to stay.

We made the most of our time there and held a catered cookout the night before the wedding and opted for the hayrack ride the venue offered. It was really great to see the surrounding land and we were given a ton of stories about the family who originally built the farm.

We lucked out with the most gorgeous Kansas weather for mid October, and everyone attending was just thrilled to be able to enjoy the great outdoors. We had a lot of guests who had never visited Kansas before, traveling from as far as Alaska and New York - and the drive to Mill Creek Lodge takes you through some of the most epic prairie land, it really shows off the beauty of Kansas! The remote nature of the spot was really special, it felt like a private oasis. Because cell reception is spotty, we embraced the fact that cell phones could be turned off and the focus was on just enjoying the day and each other.

Our ceremony was outside near the creek and I surprised our guests by arriving in a horse drawn carriage with my dad (another special offering by the venue, do it!) We had a cocktail hour outside on the lower level of the barn and then a plated dinner and dance party on the upper floor of the barn. It was a blast and everyone cut loose!

Definitely book the venue for the whole weekend and just enjoy making it feel like your own!
