WHAT EVERYONE IS SAYING ABOUT 1890
"Absolutely LOVE this venue. It so gorgeous no matter where you look. I worked with Chelsea a majority of the time, but all staff members were very nice and helpful. Chelsea was especially helpful to me from the time we first looked at the venue and throughout the wedding day. She answered any and all of my hundreds of questions throughout in a very timely manner. On the day of the wedding Chelsea was super helpful with getting everything into place and helped make it a stress free day. This is by far the best and prettiest venue I've been to. Great deal for the money. Doesn't take much to decorate as it is already beautiful on its own. Countless guests also commented on how beautiful it is. I would highly recommend Eighteen Ninety to anyone!"
"Eighteen Ninety Event Space couldn't have been more perfect for us! The second we toured the place we knew and could vision getting married here. The beautiful and historical house for us ladies to get ready in, the red groomsmen quarters, the AMAZING reception hall, red bar barn, and outdoor ceremony area... everything is just so perfect about this place. Chelsea was our wedding day "coordinator" and she was SOOO nice, helpful, and worked so hard to make sure our day went smoothly and as we planned. Our ceremony was planned outside and the day before we noticed a high chance of rain. I asked Chelsea for some pictures of the reception hall set up for a ceremony and she got back to me with photos in a few hours!! Chelsea was so fun and friendly to work with my entire family loved her. If you are debating where to get married, this is the perfect place for you!"
"Just had our wedding here and I cannot sing enough praises for Joann and especially Chelsea! I didn't have to worry about even a single thing the day before or the day of. They let us come up to the venue a few times before the big day to scout out the space, and welcomed my dad and I to practice our Father Daughter dance. The grounds are lovely and even through the rain on our wedding day went off without a hitch. We expected a little rain for April, and I can't believe how well planned their Rain Plan was. Everything got moved inside, and I think it was even prettier with the fireplace. Our friends and family are STILL talking about how pretty the venue was. You straight up don't need to decorate much at all! Also, the guys LOVED the grooms quarters and we gals think having the house all to ourselves to get ready really made the morning. The getting ready quarters are pry the best part of 1890's package, IMO. If you're on the fence, have your wedding here!"
"This venue is BEAUTIFUL! We couldn't have asked for a nicer place for our daughters wedding. Even without all the decorations this place is so beautiful! Joanne and Chelsea were a pleasure to work with. Very accommodating, very professional and a great staff! There are so many little things that need to be done on the day of the wedding and they made sure they were all taken care of. It took a lot of the stress off of us knowing that they were keeping everything running smoothly. This is a perfect place for a wedding, would highly recommend it to anyone! Thank you Joanne and Chelsea for helping to make our daughter and son-in-law's wedding perfect!"

"I've always wanted to open my own wedding venue because I never thought there was a place in KC that had done "everything right." There always seemed to be something wrong. Poor catering space. Not enough power outlets. Inadequate parking, etc. Ever since the new barn opened at 1890, I've not been able to find one thing they could possibly improve on. They've done everything the right way, which makes everything so much easier for vendors and guests, which in turn, makes the client's event operate much more efficiently. The staff is extremely knowledgable and equally friendly and helpful. In essence, they're doing it right."
"Everything about 1890 is absolutely perfect. Our wedding day could not have been more beautiful or gone more smoothly! Joanne and her staff are top notch, start to finish. Not only do they have a gorgeous and unique property, they are incredibly professional, responsive, caring and warm. It felt like they were just as excited for and invested in our day as we were from the first visit! Truly recommend everything about this venue, especially Joanne--she's a gem!! Bonus: once we selected them as our venue, we even got to take our engagement photos there. Once you visit, you'll see why this place books so quickly, don't wait!"
"We were blown away by 1890 and the staff. They go above and beyond and every single part of the venue is breathtakingly beautiful. They were extremely organized and very attentive, answering any and all questions we had right away. We couldn’t imagine having our special day anywhere else, we have so many wonderful memories from our beautiful August day. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!"

"As a wedding coordinator, I absolutely loved working with 1890 Event Space. Joanne was very open to working with my partner and I to make sure our client had the wedding they wanted. The space is excellent for a wedding with the gorgeous bridal suite, outdoor ceremony space, outdoor cocktail space, and the gorgeous, gorgeous reception hall! It's perfect for any type of wedding theme and color palette. We will absolutely recommend 1890 to our clients and can't wait to work there again in the future!"
Jennifer, Wedding Coordinator
"1890 is one of my favorite venues to travel to for wedding days. I am a photographer in the KC area that has been there many times in the past two years, and the new space that they have built for receptions is GORGEOUS! The entire venue overall is perfect for accommodating all of your guests comfortably."
"Our daughter's wedding was glorious. Joanne is awesome. She made everything so easy. Having everything at one venue was very convenient. We even had hair and makeup done at the house. Can't say enough about the beauty of the place, the convenience of the tent, bar area, and grooms' quarters. It's amazing. Family and friends loved it. Young women at the wedding asked the bride if she would mind if they used it for their wedding too."
"My son and daughter-in-law were married at 1890 on May 30. It is a beautiful venue and everything we needed was right on site. Lots of stunning backdrops for wedding photos. Joanne was a great help before and on wedding day! Wouldn't have changed a thing!"
"Had a wonderful party at this venue for my sister. Beautiful setting, wonderful house, and the most helpful staff I've ever dealt with!! Thank you for a wonderful experience!!!"

"My wedding experience at 1890 was Awesome from the beginning to finish! The first phone call, meeting and all subsequent contacts with Joanne throughout the experience were the ultimate in professionalism, friendliness, and attention to detail! I am proud to say as the first couple to be married at 1890 my experience was Excellent with a picture perfect setting!"
"My fiancé and I immediately fell in love with 1890 - the picturesque scenery, the beauty of the house, and the obvious charm of the barn. We are thrilled to have found a venue that fit our image of what we hoped for and more - a dreamy outdoor retreat with rustic nature and class. It was an easy decision for us!"
"Wonderful soft opening tonight. This is a beautiful venue for outdoor weddings, anniversary parties and a four bedroom house for girls night out, lots of options!!"
"This place is fantastic! Great backdrop of beautiful countryside outside yet with fantastic modern styling & amenities inside! Attended a private party which was great but awesome as a wedding location too!!"
