ABOUT THE RHAPSODY
Weddings are monumental moments in life that we share with our loved ones – and as the owners of The Rhapsody, and your event hosts, we don’t take that lightly. We prioritize your wedding as if it was a family function of our own, leaving no detail untouched.
From the beginning, we wanted to provide our clients with an elegant venue that came with amazing customer service, that would be accessible and affordable for all. We instilled that value into The Rhapsody from the first day, and still make it an every-day priority.
It was important for us to offer couples an on-site wedding planner and decorating service so that they could relax and enjoy their special day. Prior to the wedding day, we host meetings to discuss the details about the layout, décor, and timeline of the event. Then when the day comes, we take on the work of setting up and decorating so that you can soak in the day with your loved ones.

MEET THE TEAM
Simply translated the rhapsody means a melody or phrase of music that is unlike any other within a composition of music. From the beginning, we wanted to be a wedding venue unlike any other and provide a wedding experience unlike any other. Such has been our goal and continues to drive us. The Rhapsody is our second home and the couples that enter our home are treated and thought of as family. We love what we do and have an endless passion for weddings. We hope we get the opportunity to show you!
Wow, The Rhapsody made everything so easy and stress free! When we set the date, The Rhapsody provided many recommendations on officiants, bartenders, catering (meal and dessert), and more. They offer different packages which is nice so it gives you the opportunity to choose what works for your budget. We chose staff from The Rhapsody for floral and the DJ. Best decision we made. They are so experienced and know the in and outs of the business. Would 100% recommend them!! Thank you Rhapsody for a memorable and perfect day!
Everyone at The Rhapsody is great to work with, it truly does feel like you're part of the family. The decorations were beautiful and exactly what I wanted, and I can't say enough about Bryan the DJ. Everyone at the venue puts in so much work to make sure the wedding goes as smoothly and stress free as possible. Everyone at the wedding had great things to say about the venue and how gorgeous it is. I highly recommend this to anyone hosting a wedding in the KC area!
Where do I start with how to describe how awesome this venue is? The Rhapsody is family owned and you can tell their entire heart is into their business and providing quality services to brides/grooms. The Rhapsody essentially brought my dream wedding to life at an affordable cost. I am usually very hands on but planning a wedding can easily become overwhelming if you are like me and try to take on too much. I was able to give up some control and communicate to the Rhapsody team exactly what I wanted and they beautifully executed everything! The venue has potential to work with a variety of budgets and can be as all-inclusive or as DIY as you would like. I personally chose the upgraded centerpiece design package and felt like it was a reasonable cost for all the extras you get for the venue to help recreate those Pinterest designs you fall in love with. Not only does Rhapsody provide a beautiful venue space but they also provide so much guidance and planning tools to keep scattered brides/grooms organized. I used every spreadsheet, booklet and document that they provide to all couples to stay on task and keep all my vendors on the same page! Would recommend this Venue to any couple planning a wedding in the Kansas City area!
