The Vision

Cherished, once-in-a-lifetime events should have the perfect backdrop to  enhance the memory. Somerton is the picture-perfect setting, located just east of Columbia, Missouri. This French country venue boasts stone, stucco, gas lighting, private patios, seclusion…evoking an old-world ambiance unlike any venue in the area.

Close your eyes, breathe it in, feel it …

The vine-covered pergolas set the ceiling and offer just a glimpse of the twinkling stars above. Flames from the gas lanterns dance in unison with the soft breeze, a breeze that contains just a hint of lavender carried from the distant field. A mix of soft music and laughter permeate the air, escaping the confines of the festivities inside. In the distance, two swans cut a path through the glass-like surface of the pond, their majestic elegance highlighted, courtesy of the full moon…

Somerton—A lovely French-inspired venue conveniently located one mile east of Columbia, MO.

Having already passed the Boone County development tests which take traffic, utilities, watershed, and environment into consideration, the Planning & Zoning findings show that the resources available should be able to support this change in zoning. In addition, the site plan is engineered to surpass Boone County’s development standards.
