They have a plethora of rooms to choose from, all carefully restored to reflect the mansion’s original awe-inspiring charm. Additionally, the manor’s dedicated team can help ensure that the experience of celebrating here is as enjoyable as gazing at the stunning edifice.
Facilities and Capacity
In this mansion, which was constructed for entertaining, Loose Mansion can host weddings in a variety of sizes up to 400 guests. No matter the space, the architecture is beautifully restored throughout the estate. Rich wood molding decorates the walls and lacy chandeliers hang from the ceilings. Magnificent and tasteful, the entrance is marked by a marble foyer followed by a grand foyer. Among the many rooms and spaces, there is the Parlour, the Outdoor Portico Deck, multiple salons, and a ballroom.
At the Loose Mansion, a team of experts can help you organize your entire wedding day, assisting with details such as the design and timeline. They also have decor options that you can take advantage of and their team can help with setup and breakdown. Cuisine can be provided and is cooked on site to ensure fresh flavors and high quality. These services are a part of their all-inclusive bundle. Ceremony packages include music, dressing rooms, and sound equipment.
Accommodation is available in the Carriage House, which spans 2,200-square-feet. The upstairs once housed the full-time staff and the bottom floor was where the Loose family kept their Packard Limousine. The bed and breakfast has two suites and five bedrooms where couples and their guests can enjoy a complimentary breakfast. The rooms feature traditional-style furniture that preserves the overall authentic aesthetic of the estate.
This historic mansion was originally erected in 1907 by Jacob Loose for his beloved Ella. The two were known to be deeply in love and to demonstrate grand displays of their affection for one another. An example of this can be seen in the ‘S’ carved throughout the grand staircase, an homage to Jacob’s nickname for Ella, Sunshine.

Loose Mansion is the perfect venue
Not only is Loose Mansion beautiful, the entire staff was an absolute dream to work with! They responded promptly to all of our questions and had a wonderful plan in place due to the COVID restrictions. It made the whole experience less stressful as they handled everything! We could not have asked for a more perfect day.Sent on 10/29/2020

Elegance + Professionalism
My husband and I can’t say enough good things about Loose Mansion! It’s an incredibly beautiful place with a fantastic team. With our 90-person guest count, we enjoyed the entire ground floor for the ceremony and reception, basement room for cocktails, and both the bridal and groom suites during the day. Each room is decorated exquisitely and provided the exact elegant atmosphere we hoped to achieve for our wedding day.Sent on 10/05/2019
Abbey, Charlotte, and Brad are all seasoned professionals whose extensive experience ensured our day moved like clockwork. In the months leading up to our wedding, they responded to my many emails thoroughly and in a timely manner. Our design sessions were efficient, and we appreciated their input when we waffled on decisions. All of this planning, along with their work with our external vendors, led to a smooth wedding day.
As Loose Mansion has a full kitchen staff, we utilized their services for the supper and were incredibly pleased with the delicious food! The beef, chicken, and vegetarian dishes were real crowd-pleasers. We also requested they bake some macaroons to accompany the wedding cake and the last time I had such delicious macaroons was in Paris!
The last point I’d like to make about Loose Mansion is how incredibly convenient it was. Having the ceremony and reception at a single venue ensured we got to spend as much time with our guests as possible, which was particularly important as many guests flew to KC specifically for our wedding. Further, Loose Mansion offers overnight accommodation at their Carriage House which heightened the convenience factor significantly! We wavered on booking the Carriage House for the wedding weekend and during the weekend, itself, were so pleased with our decision!
We would recommend booking Loose Mansion and the corresponding Carriage House to everyone!

Best Decision We Made! (Other Than Getting Married)
GOSH! When trying to review such an amazing venue, I am honestly at a loss for words. Loose Mansion left us completely speechless in the best way. This old, romantic, historic home and LM's staff can truly create the event of your dreams. It was the best decision my (now) husband and I made during the wedding planning process -- other than marrying each other! HA!Sent on 11/25/2019
Whether it be elegant and refined feel, or quirky, goofy, and fun feel, LM can do it ALL! The Mansion has the most intimate feel, yet it can accommodate many guests for quite the shindig! PLUS, the mansion has a beautiful love story interwoven through its walls! You can truly feel all the love and history in the home. I just kept telling my husband that it has to be good luck that we are getting married in a home that was built in so much love.
We truly loved the entire planning process. Brad and Charlotte made everything as easy and smooth as they could - while staying completely patient with our fickle decision making. Not very many brides can say the planning was not stressful, but I can confidently tell you that with the LM staff at your side, you will not be stressed! I had tons of family members and friends say "you seem all too calm to be the bride" throughout the planning process and even on the week and day of!
Loose also has the most delicious food with such a wide variety of menu choices. We ended up choosing the plated meal option, and our dinner was plated so beautifully! My mom and I also loved that their beautiful décor was included in their package. We didn't need to make any crazy Hobby Lobby runs for final touches or anything of the sort.
I could go on and on, but what I want to leave the reader with is this: you will not be disappointed. Your wedding will go off without a hitch and both you and your guests will be amazed with how smooth and easy Loose Mansion makes the process. Connor and I joke back and forth that GOSH maybe we should just get divorced so we can do it all over again (Parks & Rec reference)! HA! We are so thankful for this beautiful home and how AT HOME it, and the incredible staff, made us feel

I love photographing weddings at Loose Mansion! My couples always have a great experience, the food is out of this world, and you could not ask for a more beautiful space to have a ceremony and reception.
Loose Mansion is one of the most beautiful venues in Kansas City. The upstairs suites have ample room to accommodate bridal parties and all of my hair and makeup kits! Thank you for a great experience!
