Summer’s fiery, golden sun drifts slowly in the horizon; it’s soft, warm light reflects off of the nearby lake. The guests are seated, and the cozy venue buzzes with excitement as they anxiously wait for the ceremony to begin. Soft instrumental music flows throughout the room. The vaulted ceilings, large windows, oversized chandeliers, string lights, and dainty linens create a relaxing, romantic ambiance. The picturesque wedding of your dreams has finally begun….
Nestled among mature trees and a nearby lake, directly off of Highway 63 just South of Macon, Missouri, sits a brand new, serene, two-story, custom built event center. The gorgeous country farm setting offers green pastures in the Spring, freshly-cut hay fields in the Summer, and an amber glow in the Fall. Though it is new, and the owners vision is not yet a reality (in the final stages of construction, however), their plans to include exposed brick, antique decor, and vintage-industrial character will certainly give it a lived-in charm that is vastly appealing. Upon arrival, you’ll quickly realize that Emerson Fields Event and Wedding Venue has everything you’d need to create your special occasion and that it’s a far cry from any ordinary banquet center.
Scheduled to officially open in April, 2018, Emerson Fields offers an older barn charm but is being built to provide guests with all modern amenities. Owners, Amelia and Steve Holder, say it is their dream to create a premier event venue with “industrial-elegant” style complete with both rustic and modern furnishings. They aspire to provide a wide, airy space perfect for events, parties, and celebrations. The venue is strategically constructed on 34 beautiful acres of historic farm land and offers 9,200 square feet of vintage elegant space designed specifcally from a seasoned photographers point of view. Every detail from the lighting, colors, and fixtures, to the positioning of the windows and the location of the venue itself, has been designed with respect to wedding photography. “As a photographer, I live by natural light, ” says Amelia. “We have taken lighting into account for every room and at every angle in designing Emerson Fields.”
Plans for the venue include customizable indoor and outdoor spaces for both wedding ceremonies and/or receptions accomplished by a large indoor reception area with stunning vaulted ceilings, polished concrete floors, large picture windows, and 3 ornate chandeliers. The sizable event area will be able to accommodate up to 350 seated guests, complete with a modern kitchen, bar area, raised stage, a beautiful, dedicated, bridal suite and groom’s hideout. Guests will also enjoy close parking, spacious, handicap accessible restrooms, as well as a large, outdoor patio complete with a fire pit and view of the nearby lake.
Steve and Amelia certainly know what they are doing when it comes to construction and photography and I know they have poured their heart and soul into this venue to help you capture the very essence of your dream event, so you can cherish the moment, the day, and the memories. I trust that, when finished, Emerson Fields will truly be a sight to behold, just waiting for you to come make some sweet memories that will last a lifetime.
