This venue has it all. It is so beautiful on it's own that it requires very little decoration and has much needed amenities like multiple bathrooms, a kitchen, and ice maker, and an elevator. The wrap around porch was so fun so our guests could spread out. 5 stars!

The best decision we made for our wedding was to have it at the Wichita Boathouse! Laura and her team are fantastic, responsive and helpful through the planning process. We had our ceremony on the grass by the river, which makes for a beautiful setting. The downtown vibe was awesome, walking distance to many hotels and restaurants, unlimited parking and a great highlight of downtown Wichita. We loved the freedom of bringing in our own vendors (except Alcohol Services) and felt the KSHOF gave us the flexibility to be creative with our decorations! Our 145 guests were comfortable and happy - photos turned out amazing of the space & I highly recommend this venue to anyone getting married in Wichita! Thank you, Laura!
