The price tag of a wedding day seems to go up as the years pass on. The folks at The Knot, a website for everything you’ll need to plan a wedding, polled 13,000 couples in their 2016 survey and found that the average cost of a wedding hit $35,329. This cost doesn’t even include honeymoon expenses. Throwing budgetary caution to the wind may get you the day of your dreams but also a debt that will give you nightmares. Here at our inn in Osage Beach, MO, we offer couples the opportunity to enjoy a wedding that is sweet, simple, and romantic.
Spring and summer bring new beginnings. The warmer temperatures arrive, the birds return, new blossoms appear, and new life springs forth. It’s a great time of year for your “new beginnings” if you are looking for a place to hold an intimate wedding ceremony. Our serene property is a quiet, scenic place to hold a ceremony. Our beautiful front boasts a majestic oak tree with flowers and a stacked paver flowerbed surrounding the base. We have a garden arch with two big candles that we set under the limbs and have beautiful bows hung on the lower branches that flutter in the breeze. It’s a nice shady spot when the midday sun is beaming.
We can help you find a photographer in town should you need professional pictures taken and we have some wonderful florists and salons as well for hair and makeup and flowers. We also have a “borrowed” bouquet and boutonniere for those wanting to save a little cost. We only host ceremonies at our inn but can help you find the perfect restaurant to enjoy a wedding dinner. Baxter’s Lakeside Grille, Jeffrey’s Prime Rib and Lobster, J Bruner’s Classic Steak House are some of our favorite fine dining places.
To honor the special couples that choose our place to have their wedding, we give eachbride and groom that spend their wedding night with us a bottle of champagne and logo flutes as a wedding gift. Our inn and the peaceful area offer a wonderful place for a mini honeymoon. This spring and summer there are a lot of fun events and activities to enjoy around town—we will happy to help you plan a memorable stay. Imagine the perfect, no-stress day! Just come with your State of Missouri marriage license, wedding clothes and we will help take care of the rest. Whether you want a country style feel in front of the Big Red Barn or an early morning candlelight ceremony, it will be about you and your special day–there are no rules when you elope to our inn!
