Amazing! Love the rustic look!

Loved working with Brandy! She made everything easy for me and understood what I was looking for. Thompson Barn is everything I was looking for in a rustic venue and I can’t wait to get married there. It also helped my choices by knowing that the location of t he venue is near hotels and other places for my guests to visit.

Thompson Barn is a beautiful space that allows couples to customize their big day as they wish. We were able to bring in our own catering and bartenders, helping us keep costs down and have exactly what we wanted. The space is beautiful and accommodated our 140 guests comfortably. On the day of, the staff was helpful and courteous. Loved Thompson Barn!!

We had our ceremony on the grounds of the Lenexa Conference Center and the reception in the barn. It's a perfect space for a casual laid-back event and has a naturally rustic vibe. Overall we were really happy with the location. As far as the ceremony, we were most unhappy with the level of landscape maintenance on the grounds. The property is beautiful, but the bushes etc. were not well kept and the grass was always quite long. Also, LCC does not run the house on the property though they advertise it as a location option for ceremonies. This is important to keep in mind because the you won't be able to make special requests for the space--it's more what you see is what you get! As for the reception, the only thing we were unhappy with was a random art installation that appeared in the space the weekend of our wedding, but had not been there before. We really appreciated the help from the LCC employees too. They are on site the day of your event to help with set up etc. and then also during your event. Overall, we wouldn't have chosen anywhere else!
