Father of the Bride
We had the most fantastic experience at Unity Village. The staff, Bobby and Hannah and all of their staff, worked tirelessly to accomplish a beautiful out door, June, wedding for our Daughter and Son-in-law, family and friends. About 280 of us in all. A fantastic prenuptial dinner was given on the premises by the Grooms parents. Wonderful hotel accommodations right on site. Warm friendly people running the hotel. Which was in walking distance of the wedding and reception. Back up indoor facilities were ready and available should the weather not have permitted the gorgeous out door setting, lining the fountains, that we had planned. Appetizers and open bar by the rose garden and on the terrace. Midnight nachos and sliders for those still up and going. The prices were reasonable. Everything was timely and well appointed. We wouldn't have gone anywhere else.Sent on 07/18/2019

Wonderful Wedding at Unity Village
Very unique venue, superior service, and superb spiritual setting—get married or remarried at Unity Village, and you get all three!Sent on 08/17/2019
My husband and I recently celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary with a vow renewal service at the top of the iconic Unity tower in Unity Village. What took place on that day turned out better than either of us could ever have imagined! It was an experience we will never, ever forget. The panoramic views of the Kansas City area from high above the Unity Village grounds were absolutely amazing, making it the perfect venue for the romantic renewal of our wedding vows.
The service we received from the Weddings and Events office was exceptional! Our event-planning angel was Gretchen. It was she who suggested the tower location, but offered us other venue options as well, one of which was the beautiful Atrium Garden Chapel. From our first interactions with Gretchen, she always tried to make sure that we were getting everything our hearts desired for this special occasion—including an officiant list, support materials for the ceremony, and suggestions for accommodations available on Unity Village’s gorgeous grounds. Most importantly, we always felt that Gretchen genuinely wanted to make this the best possible experience for us, and that made it especially enjoyable to work with her!
Our officiant was Rev. Michael Perrie, an ordained Unity minister, who co-created a very meaningful vow renewal ceremony with us, and even took the time to arrange for the background music to accompany our vow exchange. Having a high-quality Unity minister to enrich and preside over our ceremony made the experience all the more meaningful for us—we could genuinely feel God’s presence as we renewed our vows.
We highly recommend Unity Village as an ideal setting for any wedding ceremony—one that would be absolutely perfect for getting a newlywed couple off to a good start on their journey of a lifetime together.
Unity Village's reply:Margaret! THANK YOU for sharing about your experience with Unity! We value your kind words greatly and they are so helpful to couples who may be interested in Unity Village for their wedding or vow renewal. It was a privilege to witness the love and kindness that you and Louis have for each other! We wish you both the very best and hope our paths cross again soon! - Unity Village Weddings & Events Team
