The Stanley Event Space, Perfect venue!
The Stanley Event Space was the perfect venue for our wedding! We were looking for a venue that had 2 separate areas for the ceremony and reception and they had several gorgeous options. The venue is just absolutely beautiful!
Jennifer was so helpful through the process and made planning a wedding seem easy! She was super responsive and answered all my questions and provided suggestions as well.
On the day of the wedding, we couldn't be any happier! It went so smooth! Sarita, the event coordinator, was amazing! Her experience and knowledge were key during the wedding; directing vendors, putting up day of decorations, etc... She made everything move so seamlessly!
The venue was gorgeous and the staff were so helpful in every way! We couldn't have picked a better venue. We felt so special and would HIGHLY recommend the Stanley event space for any wedding or event!Sent on 10/04/2020

I cannot imagine a better venue than The Stanley. It is so beautiful and the staff was beyond wonderful to work with. They make your wedding planning quick and painless. Seriously, Cindy and Julie made everything so easy. I was so sad when it was over and I would no longer be working with them. They listen to you and attend to your needs! I had the best experience at The Stanley.Sent on 01/13/2019

We haven't had our event yet, but so far every step of the way Cindy King has answered every little question I have had so far. I can not wait for our night to happen.Sent on 09/27/2016
This venue is such a classic place to get married. Cindy does an amazing job with all her brides and will make your wedding day nothing short of amazing. They take care of every last detail and with such a beautiful space, it speaks for itself!
I don't even know where to begin endorsing this venue! Not only is it charming, beautiful, historical and just plain amazing, it's so much more. The people here, Cindy and her staff are TOP NOTCH. Accommodating, caring, helpful and just a dream to work with! They will make your wedding day memorable and everything will come off without a hitch. If I had to choose one amazing venue, this would be it! Don't pass it up because it's in Lee's Summit, while it may be off your beaten path, it's definitely a must-see venue!
Two of our favorite venues. Beautiful, well run, professional and easy to work with!
