About Us

The Journey Home is the Ideal Place

to hold all of your wedding events

Located only 15 miles north of the Kansas City International Airport, in Dearborn, Missouri, The Journey Home is a majestic colonial estate located on 5 picturesque acres, surrounded by hundreds of acres of farm land.

The home boasts 5,000 square feet including a great room, study, dining room, gourmet kitchen, two fireplaces, upstairs gathering room, and multiple bedrooms that comfortably sleep 21 guests or a wedding party. A bride may also use the home for engagement parties, bridal showers, rehearsal dinners, and more.

The unique location offers amazing views of the sunrise and sunset from every direction. The Journey Home also has a 3,500 square foot rustic tobacco barn, which is perfect for your wedding and/or reception.


With wide open acreage between the home and barn, let your imagination run wild in planning an exquisite outdoor wedding. This large, level area is the size of a football field and can accommodate any sized outdoor tent.

The Journey Home is Unique
When you rent the home for the day, a weekend, or a week, your wedding is the only one and gives you complete privacy. There are many places throughout the property for the perfect wedding photos. Whether it is coming down the grand winding staircase, on the front lawn, in the bridal swing, or many others, you will be sure to find the perfect spot!

Enjoy the Outdoors


During your stay you can sit in any of our 5 outdoor seating areas and take in the fresh air and beautiful scenery that surrounds The Journey Home. Picture yourself sitting outside in one of the Adirondack chairs, under the shade of the Dogwood, while drinking lemonade, and watching the breeze twirl the blades of a nearby wind sculpture.

Enjoy stepping back into a piece of American history during a simpler time filled with sun-brightened days, warm afternoons in the shade, and natural beauty as far as the eye can see. Whatever the season, The Journey Home offers a relaxing and rejuvenating
environment with spectacular options for your wedding!

Feel at Home


We like to think of The Journey Home as an extension of your own home – a warm, safe, beautiful environment. We believe your experience will be so positive that finding a reason to come back is all you think about as you drive away.

Perfect Location


The Journey Home is located in Dearborn, Missouri, only 15 miles north of the Kansas City International Airport. This provides the perfect location for out of town guests coming in for your wedding or for those who need a place to sleep after the reception. We are a central location for anyone with family around northern Missouri and Kansas, and southern Nebraska and Iowa.

It is also close to shopping in Weston, Zona Rosa, Atchison, and St. Joseph.
