Fall in love with Unity Village
“Unity Village is exotic and beautiful … but its value is deeply rooted in the history of the property,” says Hannah Morrison, Unity weddings and events supervisor.
“From the inspiring Unity Tower to the famous hand-carved wooden doors—it’s truly a breathtaking experience just to walk through the courtyard, let alone get married here.”
Since 1919, couples have come to Unity Village for the most welcoming and spectacular wedding venue in Kansas City. The Mediterranean-style main campus features fountains, arches, and landscaped courtyards and gardens, ready for either intimate or large affairs, indoors or out.

It all began in 1919. That summer, Unity founders Charles and Myrtle Fillmore purchased 58 acres near Lee’s Summit for a summer getaway. On August 4, 1919, they witnessed the marriage of their beloved son, Waldo Rickert Fillmore, to Harriet Collins. Charles Fillmore officiated the wedding of the young couple at what was then called Unity Farm.
Rickert Fillmore went on to become the architect of Unity Village, designing the beautiful and distinctive Mediterranean and Cotswold-style buildings that so many have come to identify with Unity.
Now—100 years since Rickert and Harriet said “I do”—thousands of couples from all faiths and backgrounds choose Unity Village to start their lifelong journeys of love and commitment.
