White Iron Ridge Event Center

White Iron Ridge is situated in the picturesque lake town of Smithville, Missouri. From the first design meeting, Homoly Design + Build’s clients emphasized their desire for a white barn with a gambrel roof. Their team meticulously crafted the perfect space to fulfill their client’s vision.

The monochromatic design of the interior and exterior allows for endless event styles and types. Each room within the venue possesses its own unique features. The ballroom showcases custom and locally made chandeliers, large windows, gambrel tongue-and-groove ceilings and an elegant grand staircase. With its cozy fireplace, the aux hall is an ideal setting for rehearsal dinners or intimate gatherings. Meanwhile, the second-floor cocktail lounge doubles as a bridal or groom suite for preparations. The lower level of White Iron Ridge boasts six private guest suites and a lounge area, providing comfortable accommodations for overnight guests. The honeymoon tower, featuring a private balcony, offers breathtaking panoramic views of the property.

The project faced significant challenges caused by the pandemic. While working closely with their clients, the Homoly team tackled each challenge head-on, overcoming material delays, price increases and labor shortages. They also needed to meet the completion deadline before White Iron Ridge’s first wedding, which was scheduled for New Year’s Eve weekend. The team ensured the building was fully finished, the property was cleared and cleaned and all inspections passed in time for the venue’s debut. The first wedding went flawlessly, with a perfect experience for everyone. The design-build team and trade partners worked tirelessly to meet the deadline and are proud to have delivered such an incredible final project.
