Heartland Farms is a lakeside wedding destination in Bourbon, MO. This full-functioning farm is home to a large rustic barn and acres of lush fields to give you a pastoral backdrop as you exchange vows. Their multiple packages designed for elopements, ceremonies, and receptions at any day of the week ensure that the location can work for any couple’s vision. Heartland Farms was established in 2015, and originally open to the public as a family retreat with a wide pumpkin patch and custom-made corn mazes. After years of being an ideal spot for autumnal leisure, they opened their doors for couples looking to marry away from the busy city life. Whether you want a romantic indoor setting or peaceful water in the background, Heartland Farms will work to create the wedding of your dreams. The indoor event space on the property gives 3,500 square feet of smooth stone floor to work with, and can seat 250 guests comfortably. The interior features natural oak cut walls, pine ceiling, and over 40 windows for natural lighting to make you feel one with nature. The covered outdoor patio with cask decor shields the couple from the elements while still giving guests a panoramic view of the thriving woods. String lights hang above the patio grounds to illuminate the dance floor as the guests dance under the stars. For engaged duos that want a ceremony with creative twists, the corn maze provides plenty of rural charm with an adventurous touch. If you walk through the wooden arch entrance, nestled in the woods by the lake is a handmade, towering wooden pergola for fairy-tale affairs. Your guests and wedding entourage can be transported to this intimate setting by the wagons driven by the onsite staff. Tables, chairs, and other furniture will be set up by the farm’s dedicated team in any of the venues you prefer. The experienced bartenders and servers will be available to make sure your guests are taken care of during the reception. In addition, Heartland Farms has get-ready suites for your wedding party before the ceremony, and two large bedrooms for a relaxing overnight stay.
