A short drive south of Kansas City area, Elysian Gardens is one of the most wonderful wedding venues available today. We combine artistic outdoor architecture with beautiful sustainable "Green" gardens and a peaceful country setting in Peculiar, Missouri. From our floral fish ponds to our special wedding pergola, this unique and eco-friendly scenery is sure to please the eye.
Elysian Gardens is a free sustainable wedding venue. (Free Wedding!) Sustainability is defined: "The quality of reducing harm to the environment or depleting natural resources, and thereby supporting long-term ecological balance." We are perfect for those searching for a beautiful outdoor wedding venue, but cannot afford a facility due to hardships that are beyond their control.
An exclusive outdoor wedding site, the Elysian Gardens are built with 70% recycled materials. These would include all different building materials and artistic décor. All of the raised beds are constructed of compost derived from landfill. Most of the mulch is made from shredded pallets and tree/limb waste. We are continuing to look at new and innovative ways to use recycled materials to provide a more sustainable facility in the future. The site is only available for the outdoor ceremony. The venue is limited to those who show that they have restricted means such that renting facilities like this would be very difficult due to their financial situation. We also are looking for special interest or special situations in the lives of the couple to be wed such that the service we give to them would be of the greatest benefit.
