It was a beautiful day...

Elysian Fields is a beautiful wedding venue located in Bates City, Missouri southeast of Kansas City. The venue is surrounded by rolling hills and lush forests, making it the perfect place to say "I do."

One happy couple who recently tied the knot at Elysian Fields is Chelsea & Kolton.  They are both kind, caring, and intelligent people, and they make a wonderful couple. They are clearly very much in love, and their joy and humor was contagious throughout their wedding day.

"I Do!"

The ceremony was held outdoors at the gazebo where aisles were adorned with rich, autumn-colored flowers and grasses. The weather was perfect, with blue skies dotted by a few fluffy white clouds and a gentle breeze. The leaves on the trees were just starting to change color, providing a beautiful backdrop for their special day.

Party Time

After the ceremony, guests enjoyed a cocktail hour at the main reception hall and just outside on the terrace. The view of the surrounding countryside was breathtaking. Guests enjoyed hors d'oeuvres and drinks, and they mingled and chatted while they waited for the reception to begin.

The reception was held inside the main hall at Elysian Fields. It was decorated with rustic charm, and the tables were set with elegant white tablecloths and a variety of colored mini pumpkins. The dance floor was packed all night long, as everyone enjoyed dancing to the music.
