Acquaint Gathering, your Simply Vintage Venue, welcomes thousands each year to experience dream weddings, amazing anniversaries, beautiful bridal and baby showers, enjoyable end-of-life celebrations, and everything in between. Built in 1889 and now one of the oldest buildings in Grain Valley, this beautifully restored chapel is Eastern Jackson County’s best kept secret. The rich history of this historic chapel is just the beginning, being first purchased by Mary Kirby Wright and her husband, J.B. Keshlear for just $135! Laurie Hatfield joyfully jumped at the chance to own and operate this gorgeous venue where she fulfills her lifelong dream of helping create memorable moments. She is both “wedding planner extraordinaire” and “little girl at heart!”
