The Rumely was the perfect space for our wedding reception. It has a perfect rustic/elegance feeling that fit our wedding style. The space was absolutely beautiful and required few decorations to make it reception-ready. Savannah was our day-of coordinator for the venue and she was a pleasure to work with. She was very professional and flexible throughout the entire process. I highly recommend the Rumely to anyone planning their wedding reception.

This venue is Gorgeous. The historic charm, reclaimed wood and pressed tin ceilings made this the ideal venue to achieve the 'look' I was going for. Our ceremony was at a Church so we just used the upstairs for our reception. The reclaimed wood bar is pretty awesome and I really enjoyed using the back 'nook' for our buffet. It allowed for more space and kept the food out of the way. We had about 180 guests and I will admit, it seemed a bit tight once we had all of the tables set up, but I did allow for a couple of extra tables so each seat could have a bit more elbow room ( We had about 20 tables plus 4 of their farm tables as our head table). Once dinner ended, the staff moved some of them around to allow for a large dance floor. I love the old building, but unfortunately (and understandably) it isn't very well insulated. They do have portable ac units and do the best they can to keep doors and elevators closed, but it did get pretty hot inside. So keep that in mind when looking into historic buildings. The initial contact with the staff seemed smooth as we booked the space and put a deposit down. About halfway through the planning process I got a phone call that the woman we had been working with had been let go. (Which made sense because she didn't seem to know much about details ie: said we could 'probably' come in the day before to set up, but only if they didn't get another event booked... ??...) Michelle was our next contact and she was super helpful in the months leading up to the reception. They then, set you up with a senior event specialists for the day of coordinating. I met with Jaime the week before the wedding and while she was great, I did feel like it was a bit chaotic having to meet and go over details with multiple planners for the same venue. All in all the space is great. Its a beautiful venue in a cool location. Our guests loved the uniqueness and it made for a stunning reception.

I had my wedding and reception at the Rumely and it was magical. Everything was perfect. The staff worked day and night to make it the best day for me. I was assigned a Senior Event Specialist and given her personal number - she would answer my texts within minutes. It was a wonderful day and I would highly recommend it!

My husband and I recently had our wedding reception at the beautiful Rumely Tractor building, and it was everything we hoped for and so much more. Upon beginning our search for Kansas City reception venues last year, we found several nice options, but none compared to the elegantly rustic, shabby chic look of Rumely Tractor, which is exactly what we were looking for (my style all the way). Beautiful columns, ornate golden chandeliers, beautiful distressed brick walls, hardwood floors and bars, and endless other antique-rustic combinations of decor everywhere. Our pictures were gorgeous! We got so many compliments from our guestsome even wrote reviews of their own initiative after the event - it was THAT impressive! There are so many other great things to say about the look and feel of the Rumely Tractor venue, but what really meant the world to us was how unbelievably helpful the staff were in the planning and coordination of our event. They truly went above and beyond both their responsibilities and our expectations. Their communication with us was open and consistent, and they always answered our many questions with speed and precise detail. But more than that, they BENT OVER BACKWARDS to help us out with problems around wedding time - some even self-inflicted by my husband and I. Regardless, they demonstrated such a care and compassion for our wedding experience that we never expected to see, and couldn't reasonably expect anything more from anyone! We owe our beautiful pictures, our amazing reception, and quite literally the success of our wedding day to the staff at Rumely Tractor. We will sincerely never forget their kindness, professionalism, and care. - Michael & Amy
