    Best venue in Kansas City!

    The Oliver Building is a hidden gem in Kansas City. We cannot recommend this venue enough! We had our wedding there 10/9/21 and it was everything we could have asked for. The staff goes above and beyond to make sure your day is amazing. Steve, Caitlin and Curtis were life savers and you could not ask for kinder people to work with. In our pre-wedding planning meetings they covered every detail we could think of. On the day of our wedding, I've never seen people work harder than Caitlin and Curtis. They are true rockstars and genuinely care about their couples. 
    The Oliver not only offers 3 floors of usable space, but bride, groom & family suites. We've had the opportunity to be in a few wedding parties at the Oliver and you cannot beat the amount of space you have to get ready, the spacious cocktail hour area, or the 2nd floor reception area. Over the past year they've done many updates to the building including refinishing the floors, painting and redecorating the suites. 
    We're so glad we chose the Oliver Building for our wedding and the day wouldn't have been possible without their amazing staff.

    Patient and helpful Venue Owner

    The Oliver Building was hands down the best experience my wife and I have had with venue coordination. The Oliver Building made sure we knew exactly what to expect every step of the way. They have exceptional hardwood floors as well as flexible options when it comes to every piece of venue rental. 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking to get married in the KC area!

    The Oliver Building

    I absolutely loved this venue for our daughter's wedding. It was simply gorgeous! Decorations were minimal because we didn't want to detract from the character of this exquisite place.
    A big shout out to Caitlin, Curtis and the team, who made the entire process so easy. One of the biggest bonuses (to me) of this location was the availability of the space from Friday evening through Sunday afternoon. It made our jobs so much easier with decoration and removal. Not having to worry about anything the night of the wedding was priceless.
    Five Stars - totally recommend!
