The Beck was amazing! They worked above and beyond for everything I wanted for our big day. They were the kindest people, and really cared about our wedding going as perfectly as possible. I would recommend them with my whole heart with NO hesitation.

This place was amazing, my husband and I and all the guests thought it was beautiful. Scott, the owner, was so accommodating and easy to work with and had great communication. He made sure everything was just the way we preferred. I'm so thankful for the Beck event space and... Read More wouldn't have wanted my wedding anywhere else.

We met the Beck crew when the venue was still undergoing renovation in January 2017. At that point, it looked like crumbling pile of rubble, but the Becks had a vision and we could see it in their blueprints and design prototypes. We were not disappointed. The Beck Event Space... Read More in its completed form is stunning. We did very little to decorate the space and it still felt rustic and magical. The venue was plenty big enough to hold our 225 guests, with room for a dinner buffet and sizeable dance floor. The bridal suite is also an added bonus that we really appreciated. It was the perfect space for the bridal party to get ready in the morning and to hold some pre-ceremony bridal photos. Probably the most challenging part about holding our reception at The Beck was the minimal availability of area taxis or car share services, like Uber or Lyft. Harrisonville is located 37 miles from Downtown Kansas City, which was a bit of a drive for our out of town guests. Scott was great to work with, he was always very responsive. In fact, that’s what led us to book a tour with The Beck in the first place -- Scott responded with a phone call within 15 minutes of receiving my initial email with a request for more information. Highly recommend The Beck to anyone looking for a big and unique reception venue.

It is an old downtown building turned into a venue location for weddings, ceremonies and more. I highly recommend this place to anyone. It is a beautiful location and very elegant inside. Scott is very welcoming and informative of everything you'll need to know before your Big... Read More Day. We enjoyed having him there on our wedding day to help things move along and go smoothly.

My husband and I held our wedding at the Beck Event Space on August 12th, we could not have asked for a better venue or a more perfect night! From the time we signed the contract, to the date of the wedding, everything went off without a hitch, including a last minute change of... Read More date that moved our event up four months! Scott Beck was great to work with and made sure that we had everything in line for our big day, including emails to check in and even helping us track down a couple of last minute decor items like table clothes the week of the wedding. All of our guests raved all night about how beautiful and perfect the venue was. When we signed out contract the venue was in the final stages of construction and we could not be more happy about the final outcome. I would recommend the Beck to anyone looking for a place to have their ceremony and/or reception!

The Beck Event Space was the loveliest place for my daughter's wedding. The entire experience far exceeded our expectations and we could not be happier with how beautiful everything was! The staff/owners went out of their way to help us with every detail. The price was... Read More unbelievable considering how amazing this space is. It was so easy to decorate because the space itself is just breathtaking. The many windows provide beautiful natural lighting during the afternoon and then the space is stunning inside once they turn on the evening lights. Our photographer said you couldn't take one bad picture in the space! They have thought of every detail from a large bridal suite, plenty of space for family to gather, a large industrial kitchen and an incredible space for the wedding and reception without having to flip or move tables or chairs. We would highly recommend this venue. It was a magical evening we will never forget. The Beck Event Space helped us to create the wedding she had always dreamed of!
