Gorgeous, romantic estate
My daughter had her wedding reception at The Historic Longview Mansion in October and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect venue! Not only were the grounds spectacular for outdoor photos, but the mansion provided a warm and charming welcome on a crisp autumn evening. The Mansion has so much history and beauty that we didn't have to add anything to make it look so good. The Pavilion tent was transformed into an elegant dining experience with a club-like dancing atmosphere. Their state-of-the-art sound system was newly installed in partnership with Fernando Productions, KC’s famous #1 DJ service. Kim and Lisa made our lives so much easier. They are genuine professionals who are accommodating, kind and full of great ideas. We researched a lot of venues before seeing the Mansion. My daughter initially thought she wanted a trendy loft downtown near the church. But when she saw this estate (and you get the entire estate with your rental), she fell in love with its romantic, timeless beauty. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. You get so much value for your money here and the team goes out of their way to be helpful. Our guests really enjoyed the venue, too, and we received so many compliments. We were absolutely thrilled with our experience and highly recommend you visit.Sent on 02/01/2020

Venue of my dreams
I knew I wanted to book the Longview Mansion after just one visit. It’s historical and unique romantic looks had me mesmerized! And the tent- you couldn’t ask for a more perfect place to get down and boogie!Sent on 10/29/2019
What I didn’t realize when I booked was the outstanding staff and service that came along with it. This place knows how to run a wedding. Kim & Lisa were on top of helping me plan out my timeline, helping us come up with the layout, and setting up everything the day of! Not only that but we were constantly pampered during the day and into the evening with staff checking in to make sure everything was perfect! IT WAS!
Also, all of my guests commented on how amazing the venue was. So as a bride I loved that of course! Could go on and on about the Longview Mansion, but to sum it up- spectacular!!

Kristen was absolutely phenomenal and made our day perfect. We had a ceremony only wedding and it was gorgeous. My guests were blown away and our wedding day was a fairytale. The venue is stunning, the staff is wonderful, and our day went seamless.Sent on 10/17/2016
