    Elegant and unique

    We were looking at old mansions in KC for a wedding reception venue for months but their reviews were horrible. We didn’t want a reception in cookie cutter hotel venue. Then we I went to the Open House for The Rhapsody in Independence, MO . Never expected to fall in love with a wedding venue when we toured the Rhapsody in 2018.

    The venue was so beautifully classic and unique. It has an old world Tuscany charm. The staff at the open house were so nice and helpful. We never expected such an elegant setting so close to home and great hotels for out of town guests. We booked it for the reception and as the year flew by we were informed of updates and improvements . The Rhapsody added a roof with lights and fans that covers their gorgeous patio, new flooring, new chairs, an outside fireplace, larger bar and a privacy fence. The Rhapsody just got better and better. At every turn throughout the year, if a problem came up in our planning, Rita Scherer at the Rhapsody either solved it or gave us great advice. Nothing phased her. She answered any question promptly and have us great alternatives.

    We saved money because Rhapsody has packages. Beautiful flowers in the wedding colors , set up, linens and a choice of many different centerpieces all included. Not only money saving but think of the time involved!
    We attended 7 family weddings through the US in 3 years. An informal poll was taken. Rhapsody won for best venue. I, as the MOB, voted it number one because it’s just not beautiful but the Scherer family went above and beyond in their customer service. We all felt we were working with family. We had no wedding coordinator since it was a reception after a destination wedding. If we forgot something or needed anything Brian was right there finding a solution .
    Brett’s Photo booth was so much fun. Brian won the family vote for best DJ of the 7 weddings. He met with the bride & groom and kept everything moving all night long.

    Bridal cottage is a must. We relaxed before the reception and just had fun. The red velvet settee is great for photos. So many places at this venue are great for photos- gardens, wall of flowers, arch and waterfall.
    Overall the Rhapsody has lots of fabulous space with a cozy elegant look. We are so thrilled about the way everything was handled. Even received our deposit back in a week!
    Thank you, Scherer family, we really appreciate all you did to make our daughter and new son-in-law’s party special! We still have two unmarried children so we hope to see you soon!

    Mother of the bride

    This event space is a hidden gem! Many info our guests did not know it existed. Location is prefect. No searching for parking or fighting the traffic or noise that you deal with downtown. Beautiful pavilion and indoor and outdoor space. Bride house was great! Lots of room for everyone to get ready together. Rita, Brian and Staci were awesome to work with.
