    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!

    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.
