Life's Finer Moments

Kansas City



Enjoy your life’s most special day at Life’s Finest Moments, a fantastic retreat in the heart of Kansas, with a vast stretch of meadows and wooded 40 acres surrounding a lodge and cabins. Hold your wedding ceremony out on the lush green grass for the outdoor wedding of your dreams. Enjoy decorating with voile and vintage accents on either side of a wooden archway lined with fresh flowers and seasonal shrubbery. Say your vows under the sparkling sun in this sunny countryside space. Or choose the photographic sunset with you as the focal point and the majestic lodge in the background. The wooden lodge offers the Great Room, Carpeted Loft, and Lower Level, all lovely spaces with a rustic chic, mountain house feel. The Great Room offers a versatile space accommodating parties large and small and boasts floor to ceiling windows by the fireplace for stunning views of surrounding nature. For an indoor ceremony, the Great Room provides seating of 225 with additional seating in loft. The reception table seating provides room for up to 172 guests, or slightly less if choosing our round tables. The attached Carpeted Loft overlooks the Great Room and offers additional room for 9 tables of 72 seated guests and also 8 couches in conversational arrangement to enjoy the celebrations comfortably. The Pure View glass railing allows guests to enjoy the events from the Loft without missing a thing. The carpeted 2,025 square foot Lower Level has all your essential modern amenities with fireplace, kitchen, large restrooms with showers, and features a gorgeous 2,500 foot patio and 14' wide covered deck wrapping around the entire perimeter for the memorable party.
