Californos is a wedding venue that provides a turn-key experience and we'll offer expertise throughout the process that will provide to be invaluable. Although long-distance wedding planning can be a chore, our venue is unique in that we are also a restaurant and keep hours open to the public every day, from morning to evening. The physical location is very much accessible throughout the engagement and beyond! Californos keeps a fully responsive office staff, meaning we're able to respond to emails and phone calls throughout the week and weekend, with appointments available every day.
You can read some thoughts shared by a bride who planned her June event at Californos, with an outdoor wedding ceremony and ballroom reception at our historic trolley barn venue. Sarah & Luke were booked at Californos for 16 months, having confirmed in February of the year before the wedding.
"I'm originally from the KC area but my husband and I have moved out of state. While looking for a venue in Kansas City we knew we needed a venue that was going to be easy to work with from out of state and accommodating to our needs. Californos delivered just that and more.
Aaron and Mig were very hands on, helping us plan the timeline of the event and walked us through what works best, given the limited amount of times we actually were able to visit the venue. The day of our wedding went so smoothly because of their staff knew precisely how to set up the room and even where to direct our outside vendors when they arrived. All we had to do was a final walk through about an hour and a half prior to our ceremony, which took place on the patio, to make sure everything was in place and it was.
We had a large young adult crowd mostly coming from out of state and the location couldn't be more perfect as it is close to the main highlights of Kansas City and also provided fun, nearby nightlife for our guests after our wedding. Californos food was amazing. There was so much variety in the buffet and our guests couldn't stop complimenting the food. Looking back on our wedding, there is nothing I would improve upon and that is largely due to the Californos venue itself and above all how attentive and professional their staff was."
