What You Should Know

The Yellow Barn can be rented on an hourly basis with a three-hour minimum. The venue offers discounts when the facility is booked for longer times and the time booked includes any setup and takedown that may be required with decorations or seating. For weddings that take place from Sunday to Thursday, there is no minimum time required.

No catering is available through The Yellow Barn, so outside catering professionals need to be contracted. Chairs are provided as well as tables, while linens and any additional items must be rented from an outside vendor.

Candles are allowed inside the barn as long as they are in appropriate containers. Birdseed can be thrown outside. However rice, confetti, glitter and party spray string are not permitted inside or outside.

At The Yellow Barn, no exchange of money for the purchase of alcohol is allowed on-site. Unlike many venues, alcohol can be brought in and served by renters or a bartender can be hired. One regular-size refrigerator with a standard freezer space is available at the barn. If alcohol is going to be served at an event hosted on the property, a security officer is contracted by the venue at an additional hourly fee. Couples who plan to host their wedding at The Yellow Barn should keep in mind that the serving of alcohol on-site can be discontinued by the owners at any time throughout the event, so if the guest list is a particularly rowdy crowd, this is something that should be considered.

For events that expect more than 75 guests, a parking attendant is recommended for an addition fee. Rentals begin as early as 10 a.m. and all activities must end by midnight on Fridays and Saturdays or by 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday. The venue is not available for rent on major holidays.

A security deposit is required 60 days before the event. If no damage occurs, it is returned to the couple. All setup and cleanup are done by the wedding party.

Extra Perks

An event decorator is available through the venue to help the bride and groom customize their centerpieces and decor for the wedding day. During any event, a concierge is on duty for the entirety of the event to greet and coordinate with outside wedding professionals and assist with audio-visual equipment setup.

I hate to sound like the other reviews & would love to come up with something original but everyone is spot on with what they say about this place. The Tenbrink's are just great people. If you can, I highly recommend using Regina for your decor, bouquets, boutonnières, etc. She... Read More just knows her stuff & it's one last thing to have to worry about. The Yellow Barn is a gem & if you're looking for a smaller venue that's affordable & so accommodating, you can't go wrong here. Ours ended up being an indoor/outdoor reception with a lot of our guests hanging out outside due to the beautiful September day we were so lucky to have. We got so many compliments about the place & it was fun to do something a little different & non traditional. I want to go back & do it all again!!!!

My husband and I were married in December, 2016 at a courthouse in Colorado; and our original plan was to have a vow renewal ceremony in Colorado around May so that our friends and family could celebrate with us. Then the Army told us we were moving to Georgia. This is when we... Read More decided we would have the ceremony and reception close to our hometown of Kansas City; and that's when we found The Yellow Barn. We fell in love with the pictures on theknot.com; and immediately booked a tour. Our original date had to be cancelled but Jaci went out of her way to make sure another tour date was scheduled. My mom took the first tour and sent us pictures and video. When my husband was passing through the area a few weeks later, Jaci graciously opened the barn for a second time (and on short notice) so that he could walk through and see it himself. Then, about a month later, I was in the area and she opened the barn a third time so that I could walk through and see the place for myself. That's when I fell in love with the venue even more. It is intimate, charming, rustic, gorgeous, and very well decorated. The Tenbrink family has done a marvelous job and they have created a beautiful atmosphere. You can tell that they enjoy helping couples create their perfect day. From the day we set up our first tour through the day of the ceremony, both my husband and I lived out of state so our main line of communication with Jaci was through email. We never had to wait longer than 24 hours for a response to any of our questions. She is such a happy person; and you can tell she really wants to exceed the couples expectations for their day. A couple days before the ceremony, Jaci's dad opened the barn for our final walkthrough so we could see the place one more time before our vow renewal and reception. Then came the big day. Everything was perfect. When we got there, Jaci had the chairs set up in the barn for the ceremony; and even helped my family put out the few decorations we had brought. It seems like every time I turned around Jaci was doing something to help the day run as smoothly as possible; and I am very grateful for that! To put it simply, the venue is gorgeous, the owners are amazing; and I simply cannot recommend The Yellow Barn enough!

I would love to say I had my wedding here, unfortunately that was not the case. I went through a consultant through the knot and scheduled my tour a few weeks in advance. I was very excited and drove the 45 minutes from my home town to tour the barn. The only person in the...
