Located in the Creative Crossroads district, this modern-meets-glam venue has all the pomp and circumstance required for a sophisticated soiree. Think original concrete floors, exposed hangar ceilings, subway-tile walls, and a 12-foot chandelier from the 1930s. You can have your ceremony outside in the 6,500-square-foot urban garden—with its wood-planked walls and romantic string lights—before up to 250 guests head into the industrial-style ballroom for the reception. What's more: You won't have to worry about all the nitty-gritty details of your day since this all-inclusive space offers a venue coordinator to ensure that things go smoothly, security to keep your event exclusive, and bartenders to man the chic marble-and-wood bar.

River Market Event Place

140 Walnut St., Kansas City, MO; (816) 591-4346; RiverMarketEventPlace.com

The former home of the Robinson Potato Supply company, River Market Event Space still retains a raw factory feel that makes it so popular.

The venue, which can hold up to 150 guests, includes towering 20-foot exposed ceilings and glass garage-style doors that open to a tree-lit patio, perfect for cocktail hour. To keep the celebration sounding as good as it looks, River Market works with the talented Elite Sounds Entertainment Group for exclusive DJ service—so you can check the music off your list too.
