I'm looking to plan a wedding, and I'm wondering what location the forum users here would recommend for the best location. It's a small event, no more than 60 people at most. The focus is on dinner and the ability to hang out after, not a huge party or ceremony. I figure this forum would be the best place to check, as I've learned about a lot of previously unknown aspect of KW through this site.

Thank you.

The first place that springs to my mind is Verses, which is a fine-dining restaurant in a converted church. Looks like a pretty spectacular wedding venue, though I've never been there myself.

Welcome to the forums!

I don't know at all about the numbers, but I've had friends have receptions at the Walper Terace Hotel and rave about it!

Verses is a great suggestion.

Food there is incredible and the service is top notch. Lots of parking and a courtyard.

Book early if you do decide as they only do a limited number of weddings annually.

My wife and I did a small reception (~45 people) in the private room at the Boa Nova Rodizio. They will customize the menu and make whatever you like, it doesn't necessarily have to be grilled meat. :P

The service and food were both fantastic.

Langdon Hall if you've got the bucks for it. Spectacular setting.
