My husband and I had a small ceremony and reception for our vow renewal and couldn't be more pleased about it. The Castle Tea Room interiors were absolutely gorgeous and had just the right amount of holiday decorations. Our guests kept commenting on how beautiful the place looked! Plus, Andre' made all of the planning and preparation a breeze. He was extremely professional and helpful. So if you truly want a memorable event, then you should consider the Castle Tea Room. It certainly felt magical for us!

The Castle Tea Room is the best kept secret of Lawrence! Andre the director was wonderful in helping us plan and coordinate catering delivery, table set up etc. The wedding ceremony and reception "one stop" was extremely convenient for our out of town guests. The set up was simple for our small 50 guest wedding ceremony and reception! The backdrop a Castle just like a fairy tale! The grounds immaculately kept. The reception tent kept our guests cool despite it was early June. The ceremony was held in the back courtyard away from traffic, so very quiet and private for an outdoor wedding in the city. There is a kitchen for food and very clean restroom for guests located near the courtyard. The fees are very reasonable and contract upfront.

We absolutely loved the professionalism and service of the Castle Tea Room. It made for an awesome wedding venue, and Andrè provided us with exceptional service. He made sure that we had everything we needed for the big day (and also made sure everything was in place). We did not have to worry about a thing on the big day. Would highly recommend.

The Castle Tea Room was a perfect venue for my bridal luncheon. Andre was so great to work with and even offered to let my grandma and aunt (who were hosting the event and live in North Carolina) cut fresh flowers from their garden so they wouldn't have to worry about buying some. I highly recommend Andre and the Castle Tea Room!

This is such a beautiful backdrop for your wedding and reception. Andre is so professional and responsive to all of your needs. I would recommend The Castle to anyone who wants an outdoor wedding and/or reception venue. It is an intimiate venue yet can accomadate all of your needs from a dancing/DJ area, bar and more. You can't find a better, more beautiful venue for a wedding!

My husband and I were impressed with the Castle Tea Room from the first time we met with Andre' to view the inside of The Castle and get information about the cost, availability, etc. While the other venues we looked at just gave us a brief tour and went over costs, Andre’ also went over the history of the building. After the lovely tour, we thought the Castle Tea Room would be our choice, but we still met with the other places just to make sure). Andre’ also recommended a caterer to us (Dianna's Kitchen) and we were glad we went with her because the two have worked together before and that really helped everything go smoothly.
The Castle Tea Room is very lovely and has a wonderful atmosphere. Our guests commented that the Castle was beautiful inside and out! Even though none of the flowers were in bloom (wedding was in April), the landscape was very well maintained.
Our one concern after viewing the Castle was that there would not be enough parking. However, we had 70 guests and there was ample parking for all! Andre’ had emailed me a map of approved parking spots the week before the wedding.
I also liked that The Castle Tea Room is a non-profit organization and that because the building is so nice, there was no need to decorate (which saved time and money).

We were so excited to work with Andre' once again. My family through a surprise birthday party for me last year at the Castle. I've always loved this beautiful place since we've lived here close to 30 years. When my daughter was looking for a venue for her wedding reception we knew exactly where we wanted it to be and everything worked out perfectly. The reception was Oct. 8, 2011. The day was beautiful and the castle was the perfect intimate place for their reception. Thanks to Andre' and our caterer (Diana's kitchen) we had a wonderful evening. I highly recommend this venue for your event.

I had my wedding ceremony and small lunch reception to follow outdoors at the Castle Tea Room. I looked at so many locations and couldn't find a venue I loved, but knew this was the right place when I saw it. Andre and his assistant were great to work with, and were so easy to reach via email (Andre responds right away, which I loved, because I'm very impatient :)). They are very flexible, and this venue is completely affordable. I would highly recommend it; you won't be disappointed!!
