    My initial destination wedding was canceled due to COVID so we decided to have a small wedding in town last minute. Larry was absolutely AMAZING!! Planning a wedding in less than 3 months is extremely stressful but Larry helped in every aspect from decorations to catering to even helping me figure out how much alcohol I should buy and during the reception Larry stayed busy the whole time, helping with things he definitely didn't have to do. The venue itself is absolutely stunning and reason enough to book it, especially the courtyard but just know you will truly have someone in your corner helping you every step of the way if you need it. Thanks again Larry for helping my day be as special as it was!!

    Best Venue in Topeka!

    When I was first looking at potential wedding venues, I was looking at venues that provided the bare necessities or were far out of town. I recall briefly looking at the Foundry Event Center in Topeka during my search, and after days of fruitless searching and contacting other venues, I came back to the Foundry when I saw that they were having an open house event. The moment I walked into the Foundry I knew that this was the best venue I had seen. I came prepared with a list of questions and Larry, the Bar and Events Manager, was there to answer them all! They offered three different packages that ranged depending on your needs, but their ultimate goal was to provide more than just the bare necessities. We chose the one that catered to everything we needed during our Saturday wedding. They also offered a décor package, which we took full advantage of so that we didn’t have to source and store all of the decorations ourselves! In addition, we also used their day of coordination services, and my day of coordinator, Robin, was absolutely fantastic! She helped with every detail of that day and took everything that I had already planned out and made sure that everything went smoothly. On the day of our wedding, I received numerous compliments on how smooth and seamless the whole event was going and reflecting back, I know I had such as great time because of who was there, and that it went so smoothly! Larry made sure that the drinks were flowing and that the fun never stopped. The whole Foundry team: Robin, Larry and Betsy (who I had the pleasure of interacting with at several open houses), were integral in making our wonderful night magical and the best night to remember. It may have poured all day long that December day, but it provided all of the luck and best wishes we needed.

    Thank you so much Emily! It was such a pleasure getting to know you over the last few months as we worked together to finalize the details of your special day! Wishing you all the best!

    Incredible Experience

    We are so overjoyed at the incredible experience we had with The Foundry Event Center. Larry, Jennifer, and Betsy were so helpful leading up to the event as well as the day of our wedding. We did our ceremony on the back patio and the reception indoors and both were absolutely beautiful. We highly recommend The Foundry for all of your wedding events!
