  • I recently married the love of my life at The Rhapsody and it was an absolute dream come true. Rita and the rest of the staff paid close attention to details, handled most of the planning, were flexible, and cared about making sure everything was exactly how we wanted it to be. I felt like I was the number one priority and had so much support with planning. On our wedding day, my husband and I were able to focus on enjoying every moment rather than feeling stressed or having to ask family members to help us set up or manage vendors. Rita (owner and florist), Bryan (DJ), and Kaci (wedding coordinator) were all enthusiastic, organized, and communicated effectively. We received countless compliments from family and friends both in attendance and online. I toured several local venues before finding the Rhapsody and I am so glad I did not settle for somewhere else before finding this gem. We cannot recommend The Rhapsody enough! If I could give extra stars I would because this venue did not... Read more

  • Wedding 6/4/21. Oh my goodness. I can’t begin but rave about how amazing Bryan, Rita & stephanie are! When we booked them and decided to plan our wedding and get married within 6 months. It was such a smooth process, all because of our amazing vendors. We decided to go with their in house DJ (Bryan) their Photobooth, and highest décor package (Rita) so I didn’t have to do much 😂😂 They absolutely NAILED IT with our florals, centerpieces, and decor! The venue has a girls cottage and a guys area as well to get ready in, which is beautiful for photos. The venue also came with coordination and planning. I did a lot myself (because I wanted to) lol but it was great knowing they were there if I needed them. Communication was great. The florals turned out AMAZING (Rita made my bouquet, wrist corsages, and centerpieces) and our coordinator (Stephanie) and Bryan made sure our day went as smooth as possible! They are absolutely incredible! Would def 10/10 recommend!

  • This was my daughter's (and now son-in law) wedding. The Rhapsody went above and beyond to make their day special. Planning a wedding is stressful! Mrs. Rita was very patient, pleasant, and kind to work with. We changed our plan, seating chart, and minor details several times. Each time we were met with a smile. We never felt like we were just "another wedding/business deal". Brian, was amazing. We initially met with him and he too made us feel like we would be missing out if we didn't choose Rhapsody for their special day. :) Casey, our coordinator the day of the ceremony, all I can say is she was a jewel. She made sure that every detail flowed as calm water. She was cool and patient. Which was very important because we had a big party and it was hot! I can't say enough good things about our experience. From the decorations, ambience, diamond wall, photo booth, outdoor patio etc.it was perfect! Hands down, we chose the right venue. To all the Rhapsody staff, THANK YOU!

  • From the beginning of the touring and booking process the Rhapsody and staff were the total package! As a bride, I was looking for a space that could do both ceremony and reception within the same venue and offered a fair amount of time to have the event space. The Rhapsody has all their bases covered from custom in house decorations and flower packages, in house DJ availability, photo booth, private areas for prewedding activity, beautiful indoor/outdoor space, making it easy to "say yes" to the venue. My wedding day was a dream, I recommend the Rhapsody Event Space without hesitation.

  • Our daughters wedding was at The Rhapsody in Independence Missouri April 30th. We had to reschedule the date twice due to the pandemic. We originally had it on a Saturday but ended up with a Friday due to the volume of weddings being rescheduled. We are so happy we had it on a Friday. Worked out well for our out-of-town guest and gave us time on Saturday to spend time together. We loved the decorations and fresh flower arrangements that owner Rita made. Highly recommend Bryan the DJ. He prepared Brooke and Lee with itinerary for the entire wedding. He laid out what was needed to keep the wedding reception moving and how to ensure they had time to thank each guest. He spliced some music together for them. He was very enthusiastic and professional. Stephanie the wedding coordinator was organized and accommodating. She walked us through the entire ceremony. Kept the wedding party organized. She helped set up the live stream and helped keep photo booth operating. She also clea... Read more

  • The Rhapsody goes above and beyond any expectations you have. They were absolutely phenomenal people to work with. The communication was fantastic, we were involved in every step. The coordinator provided, Kaci, was outstanding! She was patient, knowledgeable, so easy to get along with, and made sure everything went smoothly for us on our day. We chose Bryan, the in house DJ, as our DJ. He kept everything moving along, and knew exactly how to handle the crowd. It was absolutely beautiful, everything I envisioned. My guest had an amazing time. I cannot say thank you enough!

  • Everyone at The Rhapsody is great to work with, it truly does feel like you're part of the family. The decorations were beautiful and exactly what I wanted, and I can't say enough about Bryan the DJ. Everyone at the venue puts in so much work to make sure the wedding goes as smoothly and stress free as possible. Everyone at the wedding had great things to say about the venue and how gorgeous it is. I highly recommend this to anyone hosting a wedding in the KC area!

  • Where do I start with how to describe how awesome this venue is? The Rhapsody is family owned and you can tell their entire heart is into their business and providing quality services to brides/grooms. The Rhapsody essentially brought my dream wedding to life at an affordable cost. I am usually very hands on but planning a wedding can easily become overwhelming if you are like me and try to take on too much. I was able to give up some control and communicate to the Rhapsody team exactly what I wanted and they beautifully executed everything! The venue has potential to work with a variety of budgets and can be as all-inclusive or as DIY as you would like. I personally chose the upgraded centerpiece design package and felt like it was a reasonable cost for all the extras you get for the venue to help recreate those Pinterest designs you fall in love with. Not only does Rhapsody provide a beautiful venue space but they also provide so much guidance and planning tools to keep scattered bri... Read more

  • The Rhapsody is a family owned business and as soon as you walk in their door, you are family to them too. All my questions were answered immediately and they are so on top of everything! They are truly pros! I absolutely loved this venue and it made all my fairy tale wedding dreams come true! Rita even got me my arch last minute just because I requested it to give it an even better touch for my vision. I could not recommend this place more if I tried :)

  • The entire staff is wonderful and very professional. We loved having our daughter's wedding here and our guests were very impressed with this absolutely beautiful venue. The covered patio is an added bonus and gives you more room for additional guests or guests who wish to visit away from the music during the dancing!6

  • The Rhapsody and the entire Scherer family is absolutely amazing! They are incredibly helpful and will work with you every step of the way throughout the planning process. Beyond the family, their staff is amazing and were all over the place during our wedding making sure everything was running smoothly. After our first venue went bankrupt Rita was so sweet and welcomed us in with open arms, helping to settle our fears and calm our nerves. Then throughout this pandemic it's so obvious how much they care about their couples, everything from keeping us up to date on the most recent policy changes to 1am nights the week of discussing last minute safety measures we need to take. I can't express enough how grateful we were that we found The Rhapsody and how blown away you will be if you book with them. The are outstanding and really truly just good, honest folk.

  • The Rhapsody is an unbelievably beautiful venue! The three distinct spaces available to us were each wonderful in their own way, from the garden space for the ceremony, to the piazza-style covered patio, to the gorgeous ballroom, our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves in wonderful surroundings. The service received was beyond our expectations, and the value is much better than most venues. That's not even mentioning the amazing bridal cottage and groom's space. Truly wonderful!

  • The staff at the rhapsody was very thoughtful and committed to what the bride and groom wanted! They are very down to earth people and want what is best for the happy couple. Rita, Kaci, and Bryan helped us with our event. All three of them were very kind, and extremely helpful to have on our side during this process. Kaci was our wedding planner and she did everything she said she would, and more! Bryan was our DJ for the reception and both sides of our families are still talking about how well he did. Rita did our bridal party flowers, and centerpieces— they were well over our expectations, and out of this world amazing! Below/attached are some pictures of decorations, and the cottage where the bridal party got ready. My husband and I were very pleased with how our day went at the rhapsody. We highly recommend having both ceremony and reception at the rhapsody! Why go anywhere else, this place is amazing!
