Laura and all other staff at The Wichita Boathouse answered all of my questions, offered suggestions, and were extremely helpful and amiable. The venue itself is beautiful! I loved the natural lighting, the wood floors and staircase, and the deck that allowed for my guests to spend time outside throughout the evening. I wish we would've been able to bring in our own bartender and alcohol instead of using their bartending service! They were great bartenders, but our bill racked up really quickly due to the price they charged per drink.

My fiance' and I looked at many different venues. We decided it would be very convenient to have our ceremony and reception at the same location. The boathouse has a beautiful room with large windows and beamed ceilings. I had a vision for my wedding and am obsessed with white everything. I completely tulled the ceiling with a chandelier in the middle, it turned out perfect. Laura was the coordinator and is fabulous. She was easy to contact and always responded promptly. Laura let us go in the day before the wedding to decorate because they did not have any events scheduled at no additional cost! Could not have been happier!

We just finished having our wedding at the Boathouse and LOVED it! It was the perfect venue for us! The venue is very nice, clean, has amazing views, and makes great pictures! The ENTIRE staff is extremely nice and helpful. My e-mails were always answered quickly and professionally. When I would stop by to plan things out everyone was helpful and attentive. We had both our ceremony at the Boathouse and the reception and it was just what we wanted! Having two floors allowed our guests to not see the reception space until it was ready and a lot of our guests really enjoyed the Kansas Sports Hall of Fame on the first floor! The wedding day went smooth and easy with the staff setting up chairs and tables, guiding our guests, congratulating us, securing the outside of the venue, and so much more! Every bit of this venue was worth the money and I wish that we could re-do our wedding day all over again!

Booking the Boathouse as our reception venue was perfect! We booked on a Friday evening and everything was wonderful. Laura and her staff were all very polite and patient with all of our questions and constantly coming up to measure and take pictures. Decorating was also a breeze on Thursday afternoon as the staff and facility were nice and everything was cleaned. The reception was terrific as well. The staff and security were there the entire evening in case we needed anything. We also got lucky and the home Wingnuts game shot off fireworks and because of the location of the Boathouse and the balcony, all of our guests were able to enjoy the firework show and we got beautiful pictures with them. The Boathouse was wonderful!

Laura at the Wichita Boathouse was truly amazing. She was constantly helpful, and even though I felt like I was getting annoying with my multitude of emails asking her questions left and right, she was never bothered by it, and was happy to help all along the way. Her event staff was friendly, helpful, and careful to make sure everything was secure during the event.

We felt like the venue was a great value for everything they include, and it was a truly beautiful venue that required very little dressing up. We also enjoyed sneaking away to the balcony at the end of the night to just awe in the downtown lights and have a private romantic moment.
