We were so happy when we found Studio 2131 and first met with Paula. Their base price was better than anywhere else we were looking at and then when we confirmed that their base price was their final price (no ceremony fees, rental fees, blah blah blah) we were sold! Working with Paula was fantastic. She was on top of things, pointed us in directions of things we might have otherwise not thought of, was always quick to respond to emails (without all the jerking around other vendors seemed to insist on), and was more than willing to let us come down to the venue to walk through and figure things out and waste a little of her time. We could not have been any happier with her in the planning stages.

We were able to help do initial set up on Friday afternoon the day before and so Saturday we had very little left to do. Just a few flowers to place and last second details to get set and we were ready to go. The venue was the perfect space for our ceremony and reception. All our guests raved about how cool the space was and everything went great.

They have a gorgeous space, handy parking, tons of ways the space can be used, a full kitchen, a great sound system, great lighting... Seriously, this should be the first and last place you look if you are planning an event in the Crossroads. All things related with the venue were the least stressful element of our wedding planning. Perfect venue, great service, and we had a great day!

The event space is stylish, well laid out and provides a great deal of usable space while also remaining intimate. The staff was extremely professional and helpful. They were available prior to and throughout the wedding to assist. They were very helpful with advice and suggestions during the planning stages and went above expectations to make sure the day went off well. We would highly recommend Studio 2131 for any event.

Paula with Studio 2131 was amazing!! She was so helpful in every step. She went above and beyond during our reception along with her staff. She was patient when I had questions prior to our event, gave helpful advise and helped remind me that it was my day and to make it everything I wanted!! She was more than accommodating in all aspects. I would use her and her event space again in a heartbeat!! The space is clean, unique and has so many special touches. The location makes it so fun for outdoor photos! Our guests had so many wonderful things to say as well!! We loved having the wedding and reception at one location! Thank you Paula!

Studio 2131 was the perfect space for our wedding (ceremony and reception). Paula, the venue coordinator was extremely helpful and made the planning process very easy, especially during the last week with all the last minute details. The space provided a very personal and intimate setting for all of our guests, and we could not have been happier with our experience. Studio 2131 exceeded all of our expectations and allowed us to relax and enjoy such a special day. Thank you Studio 2131!

Paula provided excellent support and assistance from the initial planning through the day of my daughter's wedding and reception. She's professional, experienced, and always had great suggestions. The event space was perfect - from the Tuscan kitchen area, the brick walls, and beautiful windows.

She went above and beyond to make sure our special day went smoothly by making herself available to help with many last minute details. I would recommend 2131 to anyone wanting a beautiful venue with full service support and coordination.

Hat's off to you Paula,

We held our ceremony and reception at Studio 2131. We were so happy with the space and so were our guests. Located in the crossroads district, it is urban and cool but not cold. For the location and the size of the venue, it a very good deal. Other venues in the area were super $$$$. If you have a moderate sized party (less than 140) it's worth checking out. Paula, the studio manager, is organized and so helpful.

This is a beautiful venue in the heart of the Crossroads Art District. It was intimate yet classy and roomy enough for 150 guests. It's much more affordable than many other Kansas City venues that charge $5000 for their space alone.

The communication was excellent and the lady who we dealt with, Paula, was professional.

The space was absolutely perfect for our wedding and I would recommend it if you want a trendy downtown spot for your reception without the downtown prices.

Studio 2131 was perfect. Our goal was to make the evening as elegant and relaxed as possible for our guests-we chose the right venue. Parking was great with an enclosed lot attached to the building. The ceremony room had a skylight and exposed brick wall that is stunning. The caterer and guests loved the open concept (another exposed brick wall) for the reception. Lighting is excellent because it is a photography studio and can be adjusted for drama and creating mood.

Great bathroom facilities--large TV for video presentations--great sound system, extraordinarily reasonable price for all the amenities. Guests raved about the place and we had a wonderful time!

We had a WONDERFUL experience with Studio 2131! The venue made my heart melt. It was exactly the look I was looking for and did not require a lot of decor since the lighting and brick was so fabulous on it's own. We were able to bring in all of our own vendors. Paula was fantastic to work with and she was very helpful as I asked a million questions. She always got back to my emails and I felt very confident that she knew what she was doing! The price was right up our alley for our small wedding (<125 guests) and I really can not imagine a more perfect venue. Plus, thanks to the fantastic lighting and interesting look of the building, we had amazing, unique photos! Highly recommend- I would get married in there all over again!

I absolutely fell in love with 2131 the first time I saw the space and after having our wedding ceremony and reception there, I could not imagine having been married anywhere else. Not only is the space modern and original, the service is excellent. Paula Morris helped us plan our wedding from beginning to end, was always available by e-mail or in person with our questions or concerns and coordinated with all of our vendors. Additionally, Paula was there the entire day and evening of our wedding to ensure that everything was seamless. And your caterer will LOVE working in the gorgeous open kitchen. You won't be dissappointed with a wedding hosted by 2131!

Studio 2131 was exactly the place I envisioned for my wedding. My husband and I wanted something comfortable but elegant, arty but not pretentious, and intimate but not clausterphobic. 2131 nailed it! It was the first place we saw, and I knew immediately that we could quit looking. It was the perfect size for my 130 guests, catering, and photobooth. We loved the homey feel of the kitchen! Paula was great -- she met with us several times and made everything work, including my wish to hang artwork donated from friends. I would highly recommend 2131 to any bride looking for an offbeat space full of personality and charm.

I loved the venue. I only had the reception at the location. (My ceremony was outside at another location.) The layout worked out perfectly for our appr. 100 people. I wouldn't really recommend more than 125 or so people if you are serving dinner. We served dinner on the buffet, and put up tables in both rooms for people to eat on. In the smaller room we left some room for a dance floor. We hung paper lanterns and some light from the rafters. The owners were very helpful and easy to work with. I chose not to serve beer, so I can't comment on that. The price was maybe a bit high, but the look was exactly what I wanted and made it worth it. It was comfortable but still modern! I highly recommend it.
