  • If you have had a chance to look at pictures of Deer Ridge Estate, then you already know that the venue is GORGEOUS (and the pictures do not even do it justice)! However, if you are like us, you researched multiple venues…all of which we pretty and charming. What sets Deer Ridge Estate apart is the owners and the staff. Mark and Laura, the owners, made the venue for their daughter’s wedding so it truly is a labor of love. They also made recommendations and suggestions for various vendors to aid us in our search since we had no idea where to even begin. In addition, their Estate Manager and Coordinator Becky was such a blessing throughout the entire wedding planning process, especially with the added craziness of COVID. They kept abreast of the ever-changing situations and promptly let us know when mandates were such that we would have to reschedule our wedding. When this happened, Becky was quick to email us a list of available dates to reschedule. As we neared our new date, they c... Read more

  • This is a fabulous venue and Mark and Laura are a dream to work with. They listen very carefully to what the couple wants and have lots of recommendations/ideas, if requested. While other venues charge for so many extras, Deer Ridge includes whatever they have available. This alone makes it a great value. Wonderful extras: huge catering kitchen, great lighting, outdoor/indoor spaces, gorgeous bridal suite, grooms pad, stay on site option, long tables, huge space, lots of seating options. My friends wish they had known about this venue!

  • I received so many compliments both during and after the wedding regarding this venue - everyone loved it! Not only is it gorgeous and accommodating to a large wedding, but the venue owners went above and beyond to ensure we had everything we needed both before and during our wedding! I so appreciate the time and effort they spent to make sure we had the perfect weekend at Deer Ridge. I couldn't recommend this place enough!

  • Deer Ridge Estate was a PERFECT venue for our wedding in May! The owners are WONDERFUL to work with. They responded to all of our questions right away and they went above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly! Long story short, we had to switch our wedding venue literally 26 days before the wedding. Deer Ridge Estate literally saved our wedding!! They accommodated all our last minute requests and were able to provide a sense of calm during the last minute change! We only wished we'd have known about this venue from the beginning! We would highly recommend this place to anyone in the Kansas City, Lawrence, or Topeka area. The venue itself has plenty of room and easily accommodated our wedding of ~275 people. The outdoor space is absolutely STUNNING and was perfect for taking pictures without having to go off-site! We selected the option to reserve the space for the whole weekend which made set-up and tear-down a breeze for everyone! There are 4 bedrooms with 2 additional "get ... Read more

  • I looked at so many venues and there was always something that just seemed off by them. Then we toured Deer Ridge and we walked out of our meeting with Laura and Mark thinking it had to be too good to be true. The owners are the nicest, most thoughtful, and genuine people ever which we did not see when meeting owners of other venues AT ALL. They genuinely want to make your day the most special day ever, they are not in it for the money. We had our rehearsal dinner there the day before as well and our caterer forgot salsa so Laura went to her own house and brought down salsa they had in their cabinet to use. The day of our ceremony and reception, they both were available the whole day if we needed anything. Laura sort of became my day of coordinator, I bet there were issues I didn't even know about because she just handled them for me. She was even steaming my head table tablecloths because she noticed they had gotten wrinkly. Now to the venue... it is to DIE for!! It's so unique, they ... Read more

  • We absolutely loved having our wedding weekend at Deer Ridge. Planning a wedding can be stressful but the owners, Mark and Laura, worked with us for 6 months, listening to my vision and helping it come to life. Laura even helped decorate the venue for the ceremony and reception and coordinated details with my planner. I truly feel like she contributed beyond what most venue owners probably consider. Any and every hiccup experienced the day before and the day of the wedding, it seemed as if Laura was ready to step in and help. As for the physical space, it really is stunning and I cannot wait to see our professional pictures. They have built a beautiful outdoor open-air chapel that several guests took advantage of for their own pictures during the reception. There is electricity for a dj to hook up to that sounds amazing and, in a day that flies by, I will never forget stepping out of the doors to walk down the aisle. My groom loved the venue for the lodging aspect and used the days lea... Read more

  • Deer Ridge Estate was an absolute DREAM to work with! Mark and Laura are the sweetest people and were so accommodating to our entire wedding party. The venue is absolutely stunning with amazing scenery for pictures! Laura was so helpful the day of by making sure that our wedding party was where they needed to be at the right time and she even ran through the venue to make sure my maid of honor had the roses with her for the rose ceremony 10 seconds before she walked down the aisle! There is not a doubt in my mind when recommending this venue. Mark and Laura are doing it right!
