About

Up to 300 guests

The W Banquet Hall is a historic, banquet hall wedding venue located in beautiful downtown Lawrence, Kansas. Just a few steps away from Massachusetts Street, this locally-owned and operated wedding venue offers original, rustic-elegant charm. Matt and Teresa Wolff are the owners of the venue. Matt and Teresa had a hard time finding the perfect place to have their wedding when they got married in Lawrence in 2006. Most people in their small home town normally rented the local community building to host their wedding, but they wanted to take it a step further, which is how The W Banquet Hall came to life in 2011.

Another unique part of this venue is that it is pet friendly, so you can have your furry friend join you on one of the biggest celebrations of your life.

    The W Banquet Hall was perfect!

    The W Banquet Hall was perfect for our wedding. We used the hall as the place for our ceremony and reception, and the guests loved it. We had to change a lot of our wedding plans (due to COVID) multiple times, and Teresa was amazing throughout the whole process. She was very supportive, and I wouldn't have been able to get through the craziness of a COVID wedding without her. The hall is so beautiful, and I am so happy we picked the venue for our wedding.

    My husband and I just got married at The W Banquet Hall and we cannot say enough great things about the rustic beauty of this venue! Our pictures turned out just the way that we were hoping in the space and the owners are so down to earth and friendly. I felt like they truly cared and wanted to make our day as stress free as possible...our very LARGE family has still been talking about how gorgeous the place is! Thank you so much to The W Banquet Hall owners!

    We could not be more pleased with the W Banquet Hall and how professional, and flexible they were for us. It was a great space, it was plenty of room for our 220 guest, and we ended up breaking down two tables to make more room to dance which was perfect. The atomosphere is very vintage/rustic elegance. We also got to bring in our own food and drink with any vendors we wanted which is great! Highly reccomended!
