Recommendations

A great site for a relaxed reception., An Eventective User from Lenexa, KS

I had my wedding at the Lenexa Conference Center, which used to be a historic barn, but has been converted into a fairly high-tech meeting and conference space. The large room where we had our reception had a great homey feel with a high ceiling and exposed brick but was upgraded with a large screen and a sound system. The room was fairly sizeable (I think it could hold just a bit more than 100 with tables and everything) but still managed to have a cozy feel that I really liked. The price was very affordable and the venue was flexible in terms of which other vendors I could use at their location--there is nothing actually included in the space rental besides the space itself, but I preferred it this way as I had some fairly nontraditional vendors in mind. As it is a city property, we did have to have a security guard in order to serve alcohol, but they provided a list of available guards and that process was fairly painless as well. They were always very friendly and helpful and had a great staff member on site to help me on the day of the event. They even allowed me to come back and look at the location a few times so I could make a plan for setting up the floor plan. This would not be the ideal place for a big, extravagant wedding reception, but it was just perfect for my close friends and family and I received a large number of compliments about the location.
