    This venue is amazing!! The only downside is the Grand Hall isn't available to be decorated until 4:30-5pm so there is always a time crunch. I hired someone to decorate for me so it wasn't an issue. There was a change in event coordinators before my wedding but I couldn't have been happier with the new coordinator Kelsey. She did everything possible to make things as stress free as possible and went above and beyond to make sure everything was covered. Our wedding was perfect and we went over our head count by a lot but she made it work and I couldn't ask for a better venue and coordinator. 5 Stars for the service and the unique atmosphere!

What a beautiful location for a wedding! The staff are wonderful and the venue is so unique and versatile. It's right in the heart of the city along the Arkansas River with views of the Keeper of the Plains. So many great photo ops!
