Great venue with great food!
We worked with Julian at the Venue. He was extremely flexible and had great insight for reception planning. We went for a taste testing before hand and the food was incredible! They were also knowledgeable about our other vendors and helpful getting them set up.Sent on 10/03/2019

Perfect location in Leawood
We got married at The Venue end of August and both the family and our guests later told us they had so much fun!Sent on 09/09/2019
The Venue is beautiful, we had both the ceremony and the reception there in different rooms and that worked out perfectly. The bridal suite is lovely and us girls had an awesome time having a makeup party there.
Julian is a great cook - we had the food stations and the food was fantastic! Elizabeth did a great job of organizing the ceremony together with our officiant and had some good ideas which we hadnt considered. The way she decorated both the ceremony and the reception room was spot on. We had puzzles and coloring stations and she organized drinks for the pre-ceremony room so the guests could mingle before the wedding, and she always came and checked in with us about details we missed and kept us on track for the rest of the evening.
Over all it was a really memorable time and in no small part due to The Venue and its entire staff. Thank you to Julian, Elizabeth and their entire team!

On Saturday April 6th we celebrated our daughter Juliana’s wedding to Michael Mayes at The Venue in Leawood, Kansas.
Since it was a destination wedding we also held on Friday April 5th the Rehearsal Dinner and on Sunday April 8th a Farewell Brunch.
They OVER EXCEED our expectations !!! The food was DELICIOUS. The decorations were AMAZING. The cake was SPECTACULAR. The staff attention was SUPERB. Julian and Elizabeth were MORE THAN AWESOME, both of them understood our daughter’s dreams and did every effort to made come true.
They also helped us find DJ, Band, Photographers, Beauty Saloon and housing arrangements with the Aloft Hotel and transportations.
We appreciate all their hard work and thank them for everything they did. We truly recommended The Venue in Leawood for any kind of event and give a big round of applause to Julian, Elizabeth and all their personnel: Matt, Valentin, Carmen, Jose, among other names.
THANK YOU SO MUCH !!!
