Thank you for inquiring about our wedding venue for your special day. Laurel Brooke farm is a beautiful country estate nestled in a grove of trees on 40 acres, surrounded by a pecan grove, fruit trees and a vineyard. Located seven miles north of historic Weston Missouri, our farm is on one of the highest points in Platte County, offering breathtaking views and spectacular photo opportunities. Our barn was renovated by Amish craftsmen from Jamesport, Missouri and has welcomed many Bed and Breakfast guests from 2001 to 2017. However in October 2017 we said goodbye to our last guests and started a new adventure. The 3,000 square foot barn has been expanded to 4,200 square feet in 2018 and is now available as a venue for your special event.
If you are looking for a romantic setting for a wedding venue, or larger party accommodations for a corporate event or private party, Laurel Brooke Farm eagerly awaits your arrival. Whether you desire rustic charm, or country elegance at its best, Laurel Brooke Farm can make your dream wedding come true. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
