As a wedding photographer in the Atchison, Kansas area I've documented so many fantastic wedding days in local venues over the years. Sure Kansas City offers so many venues, but sometimes it's just easier to plan your big event closer to home! I know planning a wedding can seem like a huge task, but I hope this list can help make planning a little easier! If you are looking for other vendors or just need help, know that I give all of my wedding photography clients a trusted vendor list to make your life a bit easier. Without further adieu, here are the event spaces close to the Atchison area (in order of location proximity)!
