We had an amazing wedding ceremony under the 12th St. Bridge, reception in the Rumely, followed by a block party on 12th St. It was 3 events in one and Amber & her staff did an amazing job with everything. They were so flexible, easy to work with, and gave us easy access to thespace for set up the day before, the day of, and also the day after the wedding to gather our items and gifts. They were also available for our vendors as needed throughout the day. I can't express what a benefit that was. Regardless how prepared, you need the extra time if you want to truly enjoy the wedding day. The event space was beautiful and we utilized the huge elevator for grand entrances during the outside ceremony and inside reception. We had approx. 220 guests and all the guests were very comfortable with plenty of room and great climate control. They also arranged security for the late night block party and everything went smoothly and no uninvited guests entered the space. I would highly recommend the Rumely if you are planning a wedding. It is very unique, elegant, and the staff is excellent and helpful. - Penny Mother of the Bride.
We had our reception at The Historic Rumely Event Space, and everything was awesome! We worked with Amber and her staff and they were very responsive. Amber's staff e-mailed me back very quickly and answered any questions we had. They also gave us some great recommendations for different vendors. The space is so beautiful and all of our guests loved it! We toured over 20 different reception spaces in Kansas City, but we could never get the Rumely out of our head! - Maria P
Everything about this event space is fantastic! The space has character and is beautiful by itself (little to no decorating other than table decorations needed!) The whole wedding industry is a beast of its own but Amber's staff made this part of the process a cake-walk. They did what they said they would do, responded to all of our questions and calls quickly, were professional, went over and above to help us in any way they could and remained calm during what can easily be a very stressful time! They were pleasant, accommodating, a fantastic resource for caterers and other vendors and were an integral part in making our wedding reception a success. This space has it all and if we had it to do over, we would go with the Rumley again, no questions asked. Thank you, Amber, for everything you and the other staff members did to help us have an amazing reception! You all are fantastic! - Mackenzie A
Such a Great Venue!I used the 12th street bridge for my wedding ceremony and the Rumely space for my reception. I was extremely pleased with how the entire evening unfolded and also very impressed with the planning process leading up to the wedding day. Amber was my main contact with the Rumely and was always willing to help and offer suggestions. We met multiple times throughout the year and did a lot of walk-throughs in the space. She was always willing to help and was extremely responsive throughout the entire process. The space is absolutely gorgeous and has such unique characteristics. I received a ton of compliments from all of my guests. I had a little over 200 people at my reception and it was perfect. I highly recommend this incredible event space in the Historic West Bottoms! - Ashley U.
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 guests…some 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! - Amy Hamilton
This place is gorgeous!! I would just like to start off by saying I've never been to a place with so much space for the Bridal parties to get ready! Not to mention how clean and tidy it was. I was blown away by how nice and polite the staff were. I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone looking for a great place to hold any special event. I truly feel that the Hamilton wedding couldn't have gone any better, and we had blast which made it that much better! - LaKyndra Beahr-Santos
We are fully booked for 2021 and 2022 and cannot schedule any showings at this time.
