Amazing venue with an equally amazing owner
I received so many compliments both during and after the wedding regarding this venue - everyone loved it! Not only is it gorgeous and accommodating to a large wedding, but the venue owners went above and beyond to ensure we had everything we needed both before and during our wedding! I so appreciate the time and effort they spent to make sure we had the perfect weekend at Deer Ridge. I couldn't recommend this place enough!Sent on 06/18/2019

Exceptional Wedding Venue
Deer Ridge Estate was a PERFECT venue for our wedding in May! The owners are WONDERFUL to work with. They responded to all of our questions right away and they went above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly! Long story short, we had to switch our wedding venue literally 26 days before the wedding. Deer Ridge Estate literally saved our wedding!! They accommodated all our last minute requests and were able to provide a sense of calm during the last minute change! We only wished we'd have known about this venue from the beginning! We would highly recommend this place to anyone in the Kansas City, Lawrence, or Topeka area. The venue itself has plenty of room and easily accommodated our wedding of ~275 people. The outdoor space is absolutely STUNNING and was perfect for taking pictures without having to go off-site! We selected the option to reserve the space for the whole weekend which made set-up and tear-down a breeze for everyone! There are 4 bedrooms with 2 additional "get ready" spaces that can be used as a sleeping space if needed, so there was even plenty of room for the bridal party to stay! They also have additional housing on the property to accommodate other guests overnight if needed. Overall this is a perfect venue for either an outdoor or indoor wedding ceremony. We HIGHLY recommend you get married or host your event here, they will not disappoint!!Sent on 06/30/2019

I looked at so many venues and there was always something that just seemed off by them. Then we toured Deer Ridge and we walked out of our meeting with Laura and Mark thinking it had to be too good to be true. The owners are the nicest, most thoughtful, and genuine people ever which we did not see when meeting owners of other venues AT ALL. They genuinely want to make your day the most special day ever, they are not in it for the money. We had our rehearsal dinner there the day before as well and our caterer forgot salsa so Laura went to her own house and brought down salsa they had in their cabinet to use. The day of our ceremony and reception, they both were available the whole day if we needed anything. Laura sort of became my day of coordinator, I bet there were issues I didn't even know about because she just handled them for me. She was even steaming my head table tablecloths because she noticed they had gotten wrinkly. Now to the venue... it is to DIE for!! It's so unique, they have absolutely put their hearts in it! It's beautiful and so spacious, our 300 guests weren't cramped at all. Not only that but being able to sleep at the venue in their gorgeous rooms that are attached was a lifesaver!! The biggest compliments we got from our guests were how amazing the venue was and how amazing the owners were. We would 10000% recommend this venue to anyone for any occasion!!Sent on 10/04/2018
