  • If you are looking for a wedding venue space that is an ultimate show stopper, Abe and Jake's Landing is it. My husband and I were married back in October 2020 and to this day our guests talk about our wedding venue. To top it off, it's affordable AND has the space to fit a guest count of any size comfortably. The staff is professional, accommodating, and knowledgable. If you're looking for both an indoor and outdoor experience, Abe and Jake's provides that as well with an outdoor sitting area that looks out onto the river. Our guests were able to spend time inside rockin' it on the dance floor, and then step outside to not only cool off, but also socialize in a quieter environment. It was a win-win! Honestly, I would recommend this venue to any of my family members or friends getting married. The atmosphere is laid back enough to where all guests feel comfortable and welcome, but impactful enough that everyone will talk about it for years to come. The word "impressive" will not doubt ...

  • Amazingly beautiful location! Was so perfect for our wedding reception. Kiley, the venue coordinator, is the most kind and accommodating person! We could not have chosen a more perfect place to celebrate our wedding day. Even with the challenges that 2020 has given all couples getting married, Abe & Jake's continued to make our day the best day ever! The feelings and memories we will always have from Abe & Jake's can not be put into words. When I look back on our wedding day I literally get goose bumps and want to re-live every moment. We highly highly recommend using Abe & Jake's, and would re-choose them every time.

  • We knew Abe & Jakes would probably be the venue for us because it's the largest in Lawrence, but it's also very unique eclectic style venue that was so fun to see decorated with our vision. The huge ceilings, brick floor, the GORGEOUS bar, and twinkle lights are all so stunning - BUT, what really sealed the deal is how amazing Kiley and her team are to work with. Kiley went above and beyond with anything we asked for and things we didn't even ask for! She made sure my wedding cake was stowed away in the venue fridge so I could pick it up after the weekend, she collected all (and there were lots) of our left behind items from the night and had them all packed and ready for us to go. I got red wine spilled on me during the reception and Kiley was there immediately with club soda and a blotting cloth. She was incredible with helping us set up our bar and we had signature cocktails that were a hit with our guests! Even if you aren't having a large reception I would still check out Abe & Ja...

  • Our wedding day at Abe and Jakes was nothing but beautiful and amazing! It was everything we imagined and hope for our wedding day! Kiley the manager was a pleasure to work with, especially during these times with COVID and she helped make our day happen! Abe and Jakes was the first venue we toured, and we knew immediately this was the venue we would get married at. This venue is absolutely beautiful with lots of character. We would 10/10 recommend this venue!

  • We fell in love with this venue the first time we visited and we were definitely not disappointed! Especially in these COVID times with so many restrictions, Abe and Jake's made sure our wedding was fantastic, fun and full of laughter and love. A HUGE shout out to Kiley the manager!! She was the best at communicating and working with us making sure we had everything we wanted for wedding day!! You don't even need to leave the venue for pictures and pre-wedding gitters, Abe and Jake's has awesome bridal and groom suites, bars and balconies and an amazing riverfront view out back, they truly have it all! We did a sparkler send off at the end of the night on the entrance bridge with our guests and it was the perfect ending to the best day ever. Thank you Abe and Jake's family for making our big day the absolute best!!

  • My wife and I just hosted our wedding reception at Abe & Jakes and we’re so happy with how it turned out! The space is beautiful, and Kiley (venue coordinator) took excellent care of us from the moment I reached out about the venue a year ago all the way through our reception. She was very responsive to our questions and accommodated all of our requests with joy! I’m so happy we chose Abe & Jakes for our big day!

  • My husband and I had our wedding reception at Abe & Jake's and we could not have picked a better venue or staff! The venue is STUNNING (we recieved countless compliments) and Kiley, if you don't already know, will soon become your best friend! She was so beyond helpful along every step of the wedding process, patient and quick to respond to emails and phone calls. The whole thing was so effortless and enjoyable, as your wedding/event should be! The venue is so spacious and gorgeous, if you're on the fence about booking or contacting Kiley, DO IT! We also used the bride and groom rooms and they made for amazing pictures and precious moments that we'll remember forever. I am the type of person that has a very specific vision in mind and Kiley and Abe & Jake's BEYOND exceeded my wildest expectations. I dare you to try and take a bad picture in the place or not spend your evening constantly thanking people for complimenting your venue choice :) I cannot say enough amazing things about Abe ...

  • Abe and Jake's is the ultimate venue!! I had my wedding there and it was absolutely perfect! Not only is it such a gorgeous and unique space, but the staff there is AMAZING! The event manager Kiley did everything she could to make sure that my wedding day was perfect and even went above and beyond during this crazy COVID world. She made the planning process as smooth as it could be. The event staff was fantastic as well and was always on top of their role. The space itself is so amazing. It can accommodate a large number of people, has great views, perfect location, and is such a unique atmosphere inside. I would recommend Abe and Jakes to anyone!! I can't thank them enough for giving me the wedding of my dreams!

  • Abe and Jake’s was the perfect place for us to have our ceremony. It was large enough to accommodate our 200 guests, had great photo ops (the stairs, from the balcony, stage, etc), and had enough space for our live band. Kiley was great to work with and made the process super smooth and easy. I am so grateful we got married here!

  • Abe & Jake's went above and beyond to make our wedding reception outstanding. The bar staff went out and got us barbecue sauce when it was discovered that our caterer had forgotten it. Kiley, their wedding planner, was a delight to work with. They made sure to have our favorite beer on tap and even had orange slices to accompany it!

  • We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Abe & Jakes on July 6, 2019, and it did not disappoint! I was familiar with the venue and had my heart set on having the wedding there, and I am SO glad we did. Kiley was super helpful during the months leading up to the day of - I had plenty of questions and she was quick to answer them all! She kept my mind at easy through the process and was so nice. I thought the price of everything was really reasonable compared to KC for the amount of space. Everyone was talking about the venue and it had just the effect I was was hoping for! A&Js made everything easy the day of too to accommodate our needs. It was truly a fantastic experience

  • Abe & Jake’s is the perfect place for a wedding ceremony and reception! We had both at the venue and our guests raved about how it was unique and absolutely gorgeous! On top of that you work with the best coordinator, Kiley, and she makes sure your day is absolutely perfect. I cannot say thank you to her and the staff enough for everything they did! I would absolutely recommend Abe & Jake’s to any bride and groom out there planning! It was by far one of the best and easiest decisions we made for our big day!!

  • I had my ceremony and reception here and everything was amazing! The space is so beautiful that you don’t need to bring in many decorations. Above all, the hospitality is what made Abe and Jake’s the best. Kiley was amazing to work with! She is so kind and so invested in every one of her brides. By the end of the process, I thought of her more as a friend than a coordinator. She has even checked up on me after the wedding to make sure everything went well and to see how I was doing with married life. It was more than just a “congratulations,” she is truly invested in her brides (and grooms). I looked at a few other venues in Lawrence, but the customer service here solidified my decision. I would recommend Abe and Jake’s to anyone who is getting married in Lawrence!
