I am so happy we chose Circle S Ranch for our wedding venue. It is the perfect location for anyone looking for a rustic venue surrounded by the most beautiful land. Sarah was incredible with helping us at the ranch! She made our experience seamless and stress free. The best part about the ranch is the option to make your wedding into a whole weekend. We had family and friends stay with us Friday and Saturday night and it really made it a special event for us. Thank you to everyone at the Ranch for helping us have the wedding of our dreams!

The Circle S Ranch was an amazing place to get married. I went to KU but have lived in NYC for the past decade. When my husband and I were planning the wedding we weren't sure where we'd want to get married - locally or closer to my family. We looked at so many venues. Circle S wound up being perfect for so many reasons. First off, there's Mary. Mary is the owner of the ranch, and a more charming and accommodating hostess you will not find. Mary worked with a lot of out of towners to organize our weekend - rehearsal dinner, wedding, reception at the party barn, smaller dinners for a group that stayed longer, bonfires with s'mores, horseback riding... Mary and her team made sure everyone was taken care of, and they did it in a way that made us all feel special and listened to. You guys rock!! <3 The ranch: there are 12 rooms, each adorable and unique with a variety of sleeping setups – double beds to kings. There's a gigantic hot tub and a flexible common area (with a huge fireplace!). We had the rehearsal dinner here and it was perfect. The property: there are buffalo and horses and even a few barn cats if you can catch them! There’s horseback riding and hiking. There are great photo ops all over the property - tree swings, an old merry go round, a tandem bicycle. There's a beautiful area for the actual ceremony. Party barn: another big space to organize as you like. The ranch supplied our linens, tables and chairs. Everything was set up early so we could come in and decorate. All of the lighting is beautiful. The food: Jason is a wizard! Every meal we had was fantastic and hearty. From the rehearsal, to the wedding, to the smaller dinners, to every breakfast and lunch – it was all delicious. To note: Wireless and cell reception is hit or miss this far out in the country. Make sure to give your venders the landline for the ranch too. Overall: So many thanks (and great big hugs!) to everyone at the Circle S for making our weekend so memorable and beautiful!

I really enjoyed having my wedding at the Circle S Ranch. The scenery was beautiful and the people who worked there were amazing. They went out of their way to make our event spectacular. Our wedding party was there Friday-Sunday and we all enjoyed ourselves so much. I love this place so much in fact that I had my Baby Shower there and will soon be having my daughters first birthday there!

The Circle S Ranch was a beautiful place and I am so happy we were able to have our wedding there. We got the Big Event Package and I am so happy we did. Our whole wedding party was able to stay Friday and Saturday night at the ranch and we all had so much fun. The staff was amazing and helped us with anything we wanted. The owner Mary was great and helped to make our wedding a one of a kind. The ceremony and reception site were perfect. We could not of asked for anything better. I tell everyone who is getting married that the Circle S Ranch is a must to check out.

My daughter had a "Big Event" wedding weekend planned for a year. The venue was exactly what she had dreamed of. Within 9 months there were 3 different "event planners" who had assured us our wedding weekend would be everything they advertised. Not so. Cleanliness was an issue, as there were remnants from the previous wedding all over. The rooms are nice, well appointed suites, but for $250 per night you'd expect the air conditioner to cool the room and at the very least minimal housekeeping service, which there was not. The food was great. The kitchen staff did everything they could to meet special diets, etc.

It was difficult to find staff to help throughout the weekend, far from effortless. Some of the staff were not very professional and they did not keep proper records of payments made. Not very nice to have to deal with the day after a wedding. Thank heavens for online banking.

With hindsight, we should have hired the best caterer, rented tents and all and had our wedding on the farm. We could have saved $15,000 or so, and been more satisfied with the results. Be warned, pretty country venue, but far from seamless or effortless $25,000+ weekend.

I have to say that when my daughter chose the Circle S for her wedding I was cautiously optomistic that they would provide the kind of experience she expected. I have to admit that initially I was disappointed that she did not choose our country club. However, after wittnessing this event, I can tell that from beginning to end, the Circle S Ranch out performed our greatest expections. My daughter lives out of the country which created additional planning challenges. She also had very specific and demanding service requirements, including a unique menu and drink requirements. One of her goals was to reveal the beauty of Kansas to her many NYC friends and new Bostonian relatives, many of whom had never been to Kansas. At the same she wanted a venue capable of providing stunning upscale service. The Circle S ranch more than accomplished these goals and I believe, created a special memory for all of our guests. Flexability is a huge understatement. I am convinced that within reason, Mary and her staff will do anything possible to accomodate the wedding couples' requests. In addition, they go out of their way to do all the little things that you never even think of, just to make it as special as possible. Oh yes, we also had a huge rain storm just before the ceremony but the grounds were such that we were still able to have an outdoor ceremony. Had it continued to rain, they had a great contingency plan. My sense is that whether a wedding is simple or extravagant, they always outperform expectation.

My husband and I were married on June 1st, 2013 at the Circle S Ranch. It was like a fairy tale wedding. The venue is absolutely one of a kind. The entire wedding party stayed the whole weekend at the bed and breakfast, and we were all so impressed with the food, accommodations, and service we received. I would recommend this venue to anyone who is looking for a unique and beautiful experience. All my guests were so breath taken with the entire event. So many people came up to us and told us that our wedding was the best wedding they had ever been to hands down! I am beyond pleased with how everything turned out. The food was absolutely delicious! We had brisket, smoked chicken, and eggplant lasagna (for the vegetarians) and people were so amazed with all the sides we had available. Our guests ended up going back for seconds and thirds! Mary and the rest of the team at the Circle S Ranch are really sweet and willing to help with all questions. Seriously, if you can get this place, do it! You will not regret it.
