Simpson House is a beautiful and charming location for an intimate reception. Beautifully manicured private gardens, as well as other uniquely special amenities are available. Simpson House is located in the art district of Kansas City, only steps away from the Kemper Museum of Modern Art, KC Art Institute, and Nelson Atkins museum. The entire neighborhood showcases the artistic side of KC living. With very close access to churches, popular hotels and caterers, the location is convenient for guests and vendors. The mansion itself accommodates fewer than 150 guests for a buffet event, with the great room seating about 60 people. A private parking lot is provided. A lovely stone porch gives you access to outdoor space, where you can even host a ceremony. Californos is a wonderful caterer to hire for this venue, providing all linens, food, drinks and staffing while adhering to the rules and expectations of the venue. We have worked with this venue for years and it has consistently been a hidden jewel among venue choices, a very pleasant experience for brides and their families.
I have officiated at many weddings at Simpson House over the years and have always been pleased with the manner in which they have cared for my couples. Ceremonies and receptions have also been excellent.
