Grand Loft Events
Grand Loft Events is a Wedding & Reception facility, with over 15,000 square feet of old world elegance, which can accommodate up to 300 guests. Servicing hundreds of couples since February, 2003. Facility is completely decorated & furnished! Separate Chapel & Reception area, no tear down time required! We use lots of white & green color throughout the entire facility, as to not clash with Bridal party colors. Brides are welcome to bring in silk flowers or other decorations, in their own colors, to have added to our decorations. We pride ourselves in making every single Wedding a one of a kind! A Bride's BIG day should be all about her and at the Grand Loft, it is ALL ABOUT HER, ALL DAY LONG!
My husband and I got married at Grand Loft on 6/15/12. Even though it was further away from both of our families, everyone agreed it was worth the drive. We fell in love with the facility the first time we walked in and never second guessed our decision to work with Brandi, Kathy & Claude. These 3 went above & beyond to make our wedding day perfect. The all inclusive package they offer took care of all the little details I didn't want to be stressing out about during the planning or the day of. I would (and have) recommended this location to anyone. We were so impressed by the quality, professionalism, genuine care and service provided by Grand Loft (Brandi, Kathy & Claude) and the vendors we were referred to through them. A++

"Thank you!" to the entire staff at The Grand Loft! My daughter received her princess wedding; from the atmosphere to the BEAUTIFUL decor! The chapel was reverent elegance and the reception was romance at it[s finest! The all inclusive package made everything easy and beautiful! The food was delicious, the DJ and MC were rockin and we had the best party ever! The attention to detail, by this family owned venue, is what sets it apart from all others! My daughter and son-in-law said it was the best day of their lives! Special thanks to Brandi, Mick, Kathy, Claude, Dwayne and Vic for all our beautiful memories!

"To everyone at the Grand Loft, Thank you for helping to make Katie's and Clay's wedding magical in every way. The minute we walked in the Grand Loft we knew the Venue was perfect. You helped simplify the planning and for that we are grateful. The bride was beautiful, the wedding, and reception were wonderful. All through the night we had compliments on both and how beautiful the venue and the service was. Thank you again for making it such a special day for our daughter and son in law."

"The Grand Loft gave my wife and I a beautiful wedding that we will never forget, and all of the guests I spoke with agreed. The food was great and the place was clean and perfect before the guests arrived. During the entire wedding and reception the staff were the utmost professionals. I really couldn't have asked for a better place to get married. They helped out with all the little things that went wrong during the wedding and reception as well. They didn't have to, but they went the extra mile for us. For example, we brought our own DJ and he broke his speaker on the way into the place. So, he had no sound. They didn't have to, but they let him use their sound system. This saved the day. Can you imagine a wedding reception with no music? I could tell you about a dozen other things they did to help plan and execute our wedding, but let me just say that this is the place to get married. If you're looking for a place near KC to get married, this is it. I just can't thank them enough for everything they did for us."

"Our wedding was amazing! Our families loved every bit of that evening. This wedding will be talked about for years. The food was a hit, we had no complaints what-so-ever. I was very pleased with how everything went and our parents were able to enjoy their night instead of stressing. The Grand Loft thought of everything and the staff was very pleasant. Thanks for making our day that more special!"
Andrew & Ashley Green, married 3/31/2012
"I am very fortunate to say that I had my dream wedding! My guests were very impressed with the friendly staff and GORGEOUS location! And that the food was great! I am also very fortunate to say that my wedding day was ALMOST completely stress free (except my mother's shoes but Grand Loft had nothing to do with that). I wish I could do it all over again!"
Jamie and Haile Sims, married 03/16/2012
"I was married yesterday at grand loft and had an amazing and I'm not exaggerating amazing wedding yesterday! My family and guests were absolutely blown away when they walked in!! My guests were so impressed by everything! The owners were life savers for my husband and I.. they took us under their wing and booked us at very very short notice! The bride and grooms dressing rooms were so convenient and I never had to worry that my husband would accidentally see me before the ceremony. All the decorations were beautiful so it took a huge load off my shoulders to not worry about centerpieces and decorations. The place is just gorgeous the owners are amazing! I totally recommend this venue! I want to thank you guys sooo much you made my day go smoothly and made my wedding day incredible! :)"
Jessica Noble, married 4/25/11
&ldquot;My bride and I got married at the Grand Loft on January 8th. They are a very professional group of people. Their rates are extremely competitive, and their venue is beautiful.
We got the all inclusive package for $150 guests which included the Dj, Cake, and food. We ended up paying the difference for an additional 75 guests, which was still reasonable.
For the rehearsal, we had Pizza Hut deliver and they gave us a 20% discount.
For the kegs for the reception, we went with Main Street Liquor which actually handled delivery and pickup of the kegs from Grand Loft. No worries about the tap, ice, barrels and other odds and ends that a bride and groom shouldn't need to worry about. Main St. Liquor also kept a keg on reserve just in case we ran out. They said we only need to pay for it if we use it, so it was nice to have a buffer.
Thanks guys for contributing to a wonderful wedding!&rdquot;

"My daughter got married last night, 11/10/12. Words cannot express my appreciation to Brandi. Brandi went above and beyond any and all of my expectations . She made sure that this day was the fairy tale wedding that my daughter had always dreamed of. The only advice I could give to anyone reading this post is, BOOK AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! It will not only be worth every penny, but will give you peace of mind that your special day will be just as extraordinary as ours. Thank You again Brandi, you are worth your weight in gold."
Margie Monteer, wedding 11/10/12
&ldquot;Our guests agreed, our wedding at the Grand Loft was the most beautiful they'd ever seen. Brandi was great to work with, and you have to see the venue -- you won't believe such a wonderful place exists.&rdquot;
Caleb & Molly Whitcraft, wedding 11/4/12
&ldquot;It is a beautiful venue which I would recommend to anyone. They were very easy to work with and we enjoyed our day immensely because everything was taken care of for us. We have received numerous compliments about how beautiful the place was or how good the food and cake were - highly recommend it!&rdquot;
Susie Whitcraft, Mother of Groom, wedding 11/4/12
&ldquot;Very pleasurable experience. Great staff, great time. Daughter had wedding there and everyone had a fantastic time. Would highly recommend&rdquot;
John Rodriguez, Father of Bride, wedding 10/6/12
&ldquot;We loved the Grand Loft!! All of our guests complimented on how beautiful our wedding was. I called Brandi several times throughout my year of planning and she was always right there to help me and answer my questions!! We couldn't of had a more perfect day!!!&rdquot;
Ryan & Kadie Belshe, wedding 10/6/12
&ldquot;I had my wedding there on 09/22/2012. The place was gorgeous and the entire family at the Grand Loft were amazing! They were very helpful with everything and all my guests had a blast! They went above and beyond anything I expected.&rdquot;
Nicole (Salmans) Althoff, wedding 9/22/12
"I remember seeing the booth for the Grand Loft at the Bridal Expo at the Overland Park Convention center (every bride should go to the expo btw, it was amazing!) two years ago right after I got engaged. We were walking around just checking out all the booths and when walked over to GL, I looked at my mom and told her "this is the place", I believe it was actually Brandi we spoke to that day, we ended up making the drive down to Osawatomie for an open house and after about half way through the tour I had already decided we were getting married there. My mom and I actually reserved the GL that day! I was incredibly excited! The GL crew is really awesome about working with you on all points no matter what it may be. The best part about the Grand Loft is how beautiful it is! There are so many places for pictures and great places for poses! I had a wonderful time taking all of our pictures and absolutely cannot wait to get them back! All of my friends and family were awed by the Grand Loft! It really does have a perfect setting for a wedding! The next best thing about the GL is the fact that everything is there, if you choose. I did a package so they provided a caterer and the baker and everything was decorated! Even your dj is there. For me that was perfect, after the ceremony everybody headed up stairs for dinner and dancing so the transition was very simple no driving and no squishing of my dress :-) bonus! My wedding turned out perfect and I would recomend them to anyone!! Especially Princess Brides!"
Caitlin & Stockton Stone, married 6/29/2012

"To all the staff at the Grand Loft: Our daughter Amy was married at the Grand Loft on November 12, 2011 and it was like a fairy land dream come true. Everything went smoothly, - Barbara (cake lady) was especially helpful with decorating the cake. She had to switch from the flowers we thought we were going to use to some others but she took care of it with no problems, - the cake was beautiful along with everything else. We got many, many compliments on how pretty the place was, how good the food was, how helpful and friendly everyone was. I especially want to thank Brandi, - she helped us whenever we needed help and I think she deserves an extra pat on the back. She did an outstanding job. Kathy was there the day of the wedding and took care of a couple of things that needed attention. I would suggest that e-mail would be helpful as that seems to be the popular medium nowdays but I was certainly satisfied with everything and would recommend the Grand Loft to family and friends. Thanks so much, as a parent you want you childs wedding day to be "just right" and it was all of that and more."
Bernie Kruger, wedding 11/29/11
"Sorry this has come so late, but we did not want to pass up the chance to Thank the Grand Loft and staff for a wonderful and stress - free wedding!! I was married in July and my family and I can't say enough about Kathy,Claude, Brandi, Shalaine and Barbara (the cake lady!) Even through their own personal tragedy, illness and pain, they were true professionals handling the wedding. Everything went smoothly, on time and looked beautiful. We recieved many compliments on the decor and the overall atmosphere. We want to truly thank you for all that you did for us and that you treated us like a part of your own family. With Deepest Appreciation, Jennifer Gamble- Juarez and Family"
Jennifer Gamble-Juarez and Family, married 11/1/11
"I was married 2 days ago on October 9, 2011. The rehearsal dinner, wedding, and reception was just how I imagined it should go. It was absolutely perfect. Having the all inclusive package made life MUCH easier on me, and I was just blown away by how amazing you all made my dream day. Everyone was so nice, and so helpful. I have told everyone about this place. All my guests were just astonished by how amazing the place looked inside and never imagined what an incredible place would be in the middle of Main Street in Osawatomie, KS. I had so many compliments on how beautiful the place looked, and how good the food was from Dotte Brothers Catering. I did all the planning myself and none of my bridesmaids helped me, so I was expecting the day so go not so good. But, with all the stuff that is taken care of with your package, it made the day SOOO much less stressful for me. You guys are just wonderful, and I can not say enough good things about how perfect my wedding day turned out to be. THANK YOU!!!"
Erica Wallace, married 10/11/11
"My husband and I were married at the Grand Loft on July 9th, 2011. He was away for military training during most of the wedding planning. The professionals at the Grand Loft made the experience wonderful for my mother and I during the planning process. Brandi was always an e-mail away for all my questions and was so helpful in easing my stress. The Loft is so beautifully decorated! Table and general decor that other brides spend weeks or months working on (not to mention money) was all taken care of. My guests were amazed! Thank you for all your work and help on our wedding! It was truly magical! You have a wonderful business!"
Alex Hamman, married 8/3/11
"My husband and I were married at the Grand Loft a few weeks ago. Everyone at the Grand Loft was a pleasure to work with. Thank you for making our day a memorable one."
Elizabeth Lee, married 7/25/11
"I got married at The Grand Loft at the beginning of April. Everyone there was incredible to work with and very understanding! We fell in love with it from our first visit and was completely set on it from that day on. Brandi is amazing to communicate with and Kathy helped us with any and everything we needed! I could not have asked for a better day! We also had Blazic Photography shoot our wedding. Shalaine is phenomenal! I cannot sing enough praise for the Loft and Blazic Photography! Thank you so much for everything!"
Stephanie Morrow, married 4/29/11
"Thank you Kathy and Claude for making our daughter and new son's day perfect. Your team went above and beyond. The day was better than I could have ever wished for her. You took care of everything so we could just enjoy. We got so many amazing complements from our family and friends on the Loft for her wedding. Thank you again."
Sandra Petrosino, married 4/7/11
"On Mar 19th our daughter got married at the Grand Loft. When Heather 1st proposed the idea of driving to Osawatomie I was negative because of distance. Heather said, "Just go look." We did and as soon as we met Kathy and Claude and took a tour we knew we did not have to look anywhere else. The place is beautiful!!! We met with Claude and Kathy a few times before wedding and their expertise was invaluable. They calmed our crazy ideas and helped us with new ideas. Then at the rehearsal dinner again Kathy was there to help and showed Heather and Brandon how and where to stand to get the best pictures. Finally the wedding.... absolutely gorgeous. Decorations...great, lighting...great. Again there was Kathy making sure everything went smoothly. We had a number of people tell us this was the prettiest wedding they had ever been to. Finally, the reception. It too was magnificent. We had the best bartenders in Chuck and Mike. They made everyone feel welcome and comfortable...and they were a blast. So if you are looking for a beautiful place for a wedding and reception. a dynomite wedding coordinator, and a team to make everything go smoothly, don't let the drive scare you. IT IS WORTH EVERY PENNY. Thanks Kathy, Claude and gang!!! "
Benny and Paula Wynn, wedding 3/29/11

"What a beautiful wedding at such a beautiful place on such a beautiful day! I was so relaxed and calm because Kathy and the rest of the staff were on top of everything! They made my wedding flow so smoothly! My New Husband Ernie and I Thank You So Much for Making Our day Special!"
"This weekend we had the pleasure of renting the Grand Loft for my daughter's wedding. It was truly amazing. My daughter had the fairy tale wedding she had only dreamed of. Everyone there had the best time and to think we didn't even have to decorate! That is a major savings in itself! Not only in money but the time it would have taken... to decorate too! The place is beautiful and Kathy is the best bride/groom coordinator ever. Thank you so much to Claude, Kathy, Brandi and the Bartenders. Truly amazing and worth every cent. You will not be disappointed by having your wedding here. Thank you again for making our daughter's day truly wonderful. You were a godsend."
Kathy Hall-Creach, wedding 3/14/11

Laura Titzman Redeker, wedding 9/9/10
&ldquot;This is a family run business and this family cares about you and your wedding day! We felt like part of the family. The venue was an hour from home but worth the drive. You don't have to worry about anything just pick what you want! Most guests complained about how far away it was but once they got there they complimented how beautiful it was, how good the food was, and how much fun they had.&rdquot;
Niki Schoor, 11/26/10
