Rustic weddings have become quite popular over the years, and we are here for it! Having a rustic wedding creates an atmosphere that is less formal, allowing for a more casual alternative to the traditional wedding setting in banquet halls or churches. You and your sweetheart can let your personal aesthetic shine with wildflowers, mason jars, natural fabrics, burlap table runners, or whatever your heart desires while being surrounded by the beauty of nature!

So, what if you’re dreaming of a rustic wedding, but don’t want to sacrifice the modern amenities you get with a traditional venue such as bathrooms, running water, and proper lighting? We are here to tell you that you can have both!

Situated only 15 minutes from Columbia, MO, you can get just far enough out of town to find yourself on 38 private acres, surrounded by beautiful, mature trees, tranquil lakes, and fresh country air. Our venue can accommodate an outdoor, rustic style wedding, and leave you only steps away from clean bathrooms, a full-service bar, and comfortable seating. 

Couples that plan a rustic style outdoor wedding at Cooper’s Ridge will enjoy the ability to say “I do” in front of a serene lake, surrounded by lush greenery and the beauty of nature. There is a wooden hexagon archway perfect for draping with greenery and flowers of your choice. Rows of wooden benches will seat your guests comfortably during the ceremony.

Host A Rustic Reception

At Cooper’s Ridge, you can have a rustic reception, too! You and your guests can enjoy a colorful country sunset while your photographer gets some of the most memorable photos! If the night starts to get a little chilly, you can light up a bonfire in the firepit and maybe make some S’mores for a sweet treat. If you really want to wow your guests and create an unforgettable evening, you can even have a spectacular fireworks display as a send-off!

Since Cooper’s Ridge has both an outdoor and indoor space, most couples choose to serve dinner and cut the cake inside, and then guests can float from inside to outside as they please. They can visit our indoor bar for a tasty cocktail and relax on the outdoor covered patio. There are plenty of options to make your rustic wedding dreams come true.

Real Rustic Roots

Cooper’s Ridge is an authentic rustic wedding venue located in Boonville, Missouri, that was once part of a larger homestead. The main building used to be Sieckman’s Furniture, which produced oak furniture for local families. It has since been renovated into what is now the main venue space. Many couples enjoy hosting their receptions under our roof while guests can make their way outside as they please to enjoy the gorgeous Mid-Missouri sunsets and bask in the beauty of the great outdoors.
