  • 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.

  • We were looking at old mansions in KC for a wedding reception venue for months but their reviews were horrible. We didn’t want a reception in cookie cutter hotel venue. Then we I went to the Open House for The Rhapsody in Independence, MO . Never expected to fall in love with a wedding venue when we toured the Rhapsody in 2018. The venue was so beautifully classic and unique. It has an old world Tuscany charm. The staff at the open house were so nice and helpful. We never expected such an elegant setting so close to home and great hotels for out of town guests. We booked it for the reception and as the year flew by we were informed of updates and improvements . The Rhapsody added a roof with lights and fans that covers their gorgeous patio, new flooring, new chairs, an outside fireplace, larger bar and a privacy fence. The Rhapsody just got better and better. At every turn throughout the year, if a problem came up in our planning, Rita Scherer at the Rhapsody either solv... Read more

  • This event space is a hidden gem! Many info our guests did not know it existed. Location is prefect. No searching for parking or fighting the traffic or noise that you deal with downtown. Beautiful pavilion and indoor and outdoor space. Bride house was great! Lots of room for everyone to get ready together. Rita, Brian and Staci were awesome to work with.

  • We just got married here on August 11, and everything was absolutely stunning. Although the venue is gorgeous, they constantly surprise you with improvements. They have an open vendor policy but are almost a one-stop shop to be honest! The owner Rita is extremely talented and can design, create, and bring your vision to life flawlessly. While Bryan offers Dj services but provides so much more! We had no idea how to plan/execute a wedding and they were there to help us every step of the way. Luann was a very pleasant, flexible and highly attentive to detail wedding coordinator. planning a wedding can be quite stressful but I can honestly say that we will miss working with the staff-they made it an enjoyable experience.

  • OMG, I don't even know where to start with the Rhapsody. Our entire night was AMAZING. Rita, the owner, is so sweet and so accommodating to everything my husband and I wanted for the day. She helped every single time we had a question PLUS you can't beat the price! With the package we had, we got a free Day-Of coordinator to make sure our day went as smooth as possible - which it DID. The day was amazing, I recommend them to EVERYONE that just got engaged. Thank you, Rita!

  • The Rhapsody is a a beautiful venue and Rita makes everything easy for the bride and family. The ballroom comes decorated with beautiful flowers in my wedding colors that Rita put together. We had the option to do our own centerpieces which saved us money and allowed us a personal touch. The outdoor garden wedding was beautiful and we didn't need to decorate anything. Rita and her son Brian (our DJ) made everything easy and enjoyable. Weddings can be very stressful but our venue details were made easy with these two. We opted for the photo booth which was a huge hit! We also opted to use the cottage next to the venue for the bridal party to get ready. It was so fun having a place to spend our day without the worry I being late or traveling to the venue. It was also a fun place for the wedding party to gather before and after the ceremony. Rita's recommended alcohol and food vendors have worked with The Rhapsody on many occasions so they all knew exactly what to do so there was no hassl... Read more

  • This venue could not be more beautiful!! The owner Rita did an amazing job of decorating both the gardens outside and the reception room!! She did all of the flower arrangements herself from table decorations to bouquets to corsages!! Every little detail was perfect! Rita's son Bryan was the best dj I have ever heard! He kept the dance floor full all night! Her other son Brett took charge of the photo booth! Rita also provided us with the sweetest most competent wedding coordinator ever, Callie!! I would recommend this venue to everyone!!!

  • 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!
