WEDDINGS

"Best wedding venue ever! Not only did I get the venue that was absolutely perfect for my dream wedding because it provided us with our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception space all in one, but it was a package deal with: two wedding coordinators, catering (with seriously some of the best food in all of Kansas City), bartenders, tables, chairs, and AMAZING location in KC's trendy Power and Light District. It was so nice not having to mess with additional outside vendors for catering, tables, chairs, linens, etc. Also, I cannot rave enough about Jessica, The Gallery's head event coordinator! For starters, she was fabulous with working with our budget and getting us what we wanted for our pricing. Also, I was planning this Kansas City wedding while living four hours away in St. Louis, so I had limited availability for traveling to KC for wedding appointments, walk-thrus, etc. But Jessica was always so accommodating with my schedule. I went to the venue for numerous reasons throughout the whole wedding planning process probably 15-20 times and I never had trouble getting in to see the venue and talk to Jessica. And she was always so great with input and suggestions on things for the wedding that I would've never thought of but were super important to the wedding. The day of the wedding she made sure everything was setup and decorated just like how I wanted (seriously, I cried when I walked into the venue before the ceremony and saw everything set up and decorated for the first time-it was PER-FECT!). That was great not having to stress about setting up for the wedding or assign friends or family members to do so because I knew it was all in good hands with Jessica and her team of workers. Throughout the evening of the wedding, she was always running around doing things behind the scenes and probably putting out fires (figuratively, haha) that I wasn't ever even aware of. How many venues come with something (someone) like that?! As for the event space itself, it was perfect for what my groom and I were looking for: modern, chic, and classy. I love the back wall that is all windows and doors that slide open to the balcony that overlooks the Power and Light District. I love the lounge area with the trendy white leather furniture. I love that the Kill Devil Club was just across the hall for cocktail hour and was just as upscale as the rest of The Gallery. Having cocktail hour there allowed for Jessica and her workers to flip the room from ceremony to reception. I love the fun light panels on the ceiling that change colors. I could go on, by basically, I LOVED this venue (in case you couldn't already tell) and would HIGHLY recommend it!!"

"My husband and I had our wedding reception last May at the Gallery.  Jessica was a pleasure to work with, responsive, organized, and helped us truly enjoy our day and not have to worry about the details.  The food and drinks were awesome, and we believe all our guests had a blast.  I would highly recommend the event space for a wedding reception venue."

-Brooke and Brett Condie, May 2014 Wedding

"Our daughter's wedding reception was exceptional, thanks to the staff at The Gallery. Jessica was incredibly attentive from our initial inquiry in October 2013 until we left at the end of a perfect evening in August 2014. She was on top of every detail during the entire reception. Chef was great to work with, and the food was very good. The banquet staff did their job well. The entire experience was great, but Jessica's professionalism and patience with us when we couldn't make a decision on the menu, and her genuine desire to make sure we were happy with everything, really stand out. A very positive experience!"
-Dan and Karen Toughey, August 2014 Wedding

"This wedding venue is OUTSTANDING! I cannot tell you how wonderful the staff, especially the coordinator Jessica. She worked so well with us. They are flexible and positive the entire way and work incredibly hard to make your wedding exactly what you want. They offer such a unique space and an incredible location with an amazing view that you cannot compete with any other venue in the KC area. Please do not hesitate to make an appointment with the Gallery. It will be a wedding your family and friends will be talking about for years."

CORPORATE EVENTS

"The Gallery is a fabulous facility for our meetings. The space is amazing and provides us with state of the art technology. Excellent sound and lighting and fully dependable projection for digital materials and displays. The food is fantastic. We have met there for more than a year and we have had a different lunch at each meeting. It is perfectly prepared and always delicious. The service is warm and friendly and on time. We have a very tight schedule for each meeting and the staff makes certain everyone is served prior to the program beginning. That is a small 20 minute window. They do a fantastic job.  I have worked with many location over the years and have not had a facility that can bring it all together the way the Gallery does. We highly recommend the Gallery for your event."
-Dr. Charles A. Eddy, Chair, Entertainment Committee, Downtown Rotary Club of Kansas City

"The Gallery was the venue of choice for our elementary school's biennial benefit auction. We have routinely hosted the event at a country club near our homes, but have opted to venture out and find a venue that can provide more of a "night out" feel for our guests. The Gallery didn't just meet our expectations, they exceeded them! Not only is the space tremendous, but the staff is professional and extremely helpful. We were always met with a solution to any need or request that we had. Their efforts were continually positive and professional, from top down. Even individuals who were there to tend bar were able to go beyond the call of duty to assist if called upon.Our guests were happy with the location, ample covered, secure and affordable parking nearby, the look and size of the venue and how it accommodated our event. We loved how simple it's look is and accommodating to transform however best for your event. It certainly is a plus to be located in the heart of the historic Power & Light District with a stunning view of Kansas City."
