Everyone has monumental days in their life. The 21st birthday is a big deal to some. Buying or renting your first home is an empowering day. The first day on the job is exciting and maybe a little nerve wracking.
But one monumental day is the day you get married. Whether you want a private ceremony between you, your partner and an officiant, or if you want 300 of your closest friends and family to join, the wedding location is an important decision. You’ll always remember where you said your vows. It sets the scene. To make things easy for the brides and grooms, here is your list for unique wedding venues in Overland Park.
Over 300 acres of nature, with meticulously tended gardens that are kept in season throughout the year, always ready for a photo-op. Picture getting hitched lakeside at their tranquil Ampitheater, or in the iris garden. Rental spaces seat 15-125 guests. If your wedding is planned for 2024, be first in line to get married at the Longhouse, the Arboretum's new Visitor Center. The contemporary design of the building will provide panoramic views to the outdoor areas of the Arboretum.
If you have color on your Pinterest boards, look no further than the Museum at Prairiefire. We dare you to find a more colorful and memorable building. Their grand hall seats up to 300 people. Don’t forget the extra place card for the T-Rex.
Sweeping golf course views from their outdoor veranda, mixed with their all-inclusive packages make for an eye-catching and headache-free experience at St. Andrews Golf Club. Bring up to 250 of your closest friends and family when you say “I do.”
If you’re planning to keep your wedding close and intimate, Vintage House is just the cutest venue you will ever see. The Vintage House is filled with character and it’s photographer-ready. The home in Downtown OP has an outdoor patio that’s perfect for small gatherings such as a micro wedding or bridal shower. This is a definite must-see if you’re planning a more intimate wedding.
Ready to party? Your guests are. Here are some reception halls ready to toast the newlyweds.
Is the happy couple a couple of history buffs? The Johnson County Arts and Heritage Center is home to the Johnson County Museum where you can step back in time with the 1950s all-electric house. There’s plenty to see here and the best part is its unique rental space to accommodate parties of all sizes. Invite up to 300 guests in the large rental hall with a full kitchen and giant patio.
Go big. It’s your wedding day. If you recognize the name Fiorella’s and thinking...isn’t that the barbecue? Yes and no. This is an event space separate from Jack Stack barbecue but in the renowned Kansas City barbecue family, the Fiorella’s. The venue can hold events up to 1500 people cocktail style, and 900 seated. What’s the name without the barbecue? Fiorella’s offers chef-driven catering menus with their signature barbecue as well as other guest favorites like seafood, European-inspired options, local ingredients, and bar packages.
The Camelot Ballroom is meant for dancing. The ballroom offers dance lessons but it’s also an event space -- and a gorgeous one, at that. A floating hardwood floor, three-tiered chandeliers, 15-feet windows, a stage, and a canopied main entrance -- this ballroom is a must-see. The ballroom holds up to 500 guests and provides catering and bar services.
The Social Club is packed with state-of-the-art audio visual services, digital decor and lighting and event specialists ready to make your reception the best of the best. The space houses 36 TVs, 4 projectors, two fully stocked bars, in-house catering, outdoor patio seating, and a VIP upstairs called the Botanical Room rooftop bar and deck.
