Our Favorite Things - Rustic Venues

Being in the midwest comes with three truths: 1. Lace will always be a thing 2. Outdoor ceremonies will always be slightly sketch in the spring, and 3. Rustic venues will never go out of style.

Whether you’re going for the rustic chic, vintage rustic, burlap and lace, and a combo of all three, rustic venues will be popular forever, and in KC alone there are TONS of options to choose from!

In this blog post we highlight our favorite rustic venues, and even showcase some real AMH brides on their big day at these beautiful spaces. Still looking for the perfect rustic venue? Look no further! Enjoy!

1890 Event Space

Eighteen Ninety was originally built in 1872 by the Cockrill family. Upon this high hill, the owners could look down upon the trains heading into Tracy, Missouri. In 1890, it is believed from records available, the house was added onto and changed to resemble more of what you see today. With a minimal amount of owners, the house was kept in remarkable condition. Two owners who left their mark on the property are C.O. Moore (circa 1914 to 1924) and Dr. James McCrae (1958 to 2014).

Mr. Moore’s handiwork was found during partial renovation of the house above the fireplace behind the paneling. A graffiti rending of a man smoking a pipe was found, with the initials COM next to it. Dr. McCrae’s influence is found on the property as a whole. A veterinarian by trade, Dr. McCrae made many improvements to the grounds and updating of the house during his ownership. Thru his efforts, the house was modernized, and preserved.

1890 offers serene views and distinctive spaces worthy of your vows. The rolling hills and grounds provide an unforgettable backdrop for your wedding. Eighteen Ninety's two unique spaces offer everything needed to host an intimate wedding of 5 guests or a larger celebration for 300 people.
