Q: Where are you located? A: We are located at 707 N Kurzweil Rd, Raymore, Missouri. We are located just 30 minutes south of the Kansas City, Missouri, metropolitan area. We are on a country road just east of Belton/Raymore and just southwest of Lee’s Summit, Missouri.
Q: Do you offer any packages? A: Yes. We offer two setup packages: 1) Classic Do-It-Yourself option where you design and set up the wedding as you choose. 2) Full-Service Setup option where Rogge Family Vineyard sets up the wedding that you envision. Either way - we offer an amazing array of decorations, furniture accents, centerpiece decor, signage, etc. for either a DIY or a Full-Service setup!
Q: What does the Full-Service Setup Package include? A: The Full-Service Setup package option includes two consultations prior to your wedding day. We have observed and witnessed nearly 100 weddings at our venue and can help advise you on a perfectly personalized wedding setting with valuable input and suggestions. The consultations would include in-depth planning, detailed laying out of the venue space, table and chair setup, centerpieces, ceremony setup, decor checklists, and much more.
Q: Do you host events in the Winter? A: At this time, no, we do not host events in December, January, or February. We offer event rentals the rest of the year, March through November.
Q: Are the barns air-conditioned or heated? A: Yes. We offer AC or heat in one of our barns. In addition, for warm-weather events, we are located on vast pastureland with plenty of trees surrounding the venue. The outdoor patio and green space between the barns are shaded nicely by late afternoon. In addition, our barns open up with many doors and windows to allow good airflow. Both barns stay fairly cool on hot days. The Dairy Barn also has ceiling fans. And by the time the party starts, the sun is setting, and temperatures drop nicely.
Q: Do you require particular vendors? A: No. We encourage you to choose your vendors. We can provide a list of experienced and personally recommended vendors from the area. Food trucks are allowed.
Q: What is the plan if it rains? A: Your ceremony can be held in either barn as well as the reception. You may also choose to rent a tent for the outdoor green space. You choose which barn you want to hold the ceremony and/or the reception!
Q: What are some lodging options in the area? A: There are multiple hotels within 10 miles of our location.
Q: Do you require event insurance? A: Yes. We require "special event" insurance. Minimum policy requirements are general liability of $1,000,000. If you plan to serve alcohol at the event, your policy must include Host Liquor Liability. We offer three ways for you to secure event insurance. Price ranges between $50-$120.
Q: I would like to look around your event space. Can I just drop by? A: Since we are on private property with a locked gate most of the time, you will need to call and schedule a tour.
Q: How do I reserve my date? A: Dates are reserved on a first come first serve basis. We require a $500 non-refundable save-the-date deposit down (or half of the rental rate if choosing an hourly event Monday through Thursday) and a signed contract to reserve the date. Payment can be made through check, cash, money order, Venmo, or Square. The balance would then be due 30 days before your event.
Q: Do you offer tables and chairs and linens? A: Yes. We now offer 12 beautiful pine wood rectangular 8' x 3' tables, 13 eight-foot rectangular folding tables, 12 sixty-inch diameter round folding tables, and 200 folding chairs for you to use.
Q: Do you offer any sort of linens? A: Yes. We have full sets of ivory and black linens (tablecloths and chair covers) as well as some navy and white tablecloths, and a number of different colored chair sashes (including ivory, navy, dusty rose, silver, and white).
Q: Do you allow dogs? A: Yes. We love dogs. However, your dog(s) must be leashed or crated at all times.
Q: Do you include a wedding-day coordinator? A: No. We do not offer a "day-of coordinator", but we now offer services (Full-Service Setup option) for planning and setting up of your event. If you choose a DIY setup, we are always available before and during your event to help with questions or advice.
Q: Can we have fireworks on your property? A: No. Fireworks, floating lanterns, and sparklers are not permitted. Please consider send-offs using alternative items such as birdseed, bubbles, helium balloons, flower petals (real), optical wands, ribbon wands, streamers, glow sticks, or similar. Feel free to be creative!
Q: What time do we need to be off the property? A: Your party must be over and cleaned up no later than 11:00 pm if hosting an evening event. Your decorations, personal belongings, and vehicles should all be gone by this time.
Q: Are candles allowed? A: No. We do not allow open flames of any kind. However, there are many wonderful and new battery and solar operated lighting options out there. In addition, we provide some of these lighting options if so desired.
Q: Do you offer kitchen space? A: No. At this time, we cannot offer kitchen space. However, your catering choice will have the ability to provide everything including keeping your food warm without kitchen space. In addition, please feel free to provide your own food and drinks for your event; chafing dishes work wonderfully.
Q: Are there any “additional costs” we should be aware of as part of your rental contract? A: No. Everything we have to offer is included at one low rate for either a DIY setup option or a Full-Service Setup option. We do not have any “add-on costs” for you to worry about. However, we now offer a tent for an additional rental fee if you choose to have it put up for your event.
Q: Can we offer alcohol at our event? A: Yes. You may provide alcohol to your guests, but you cannot charge your guests for alcoholic beverages. If you wish to sell alcohol at your event, you must provide a properly licensed bartender.
Q: What is your capacity? A: During the peak season of April through October, our capacity is 180 guests. During the off-season of March or November, our capacity is 120 guests.
Q: Do you have bathrooms at your venue? A: Yes. We offer charming restroom facilities that include two stalls, both of which are wheelchair friendly.
