The Loose Mansion is one of Kansas City’s historic treasures and is listed on the National Historic Register. Ken and Barbara Saathoff purchased this spectacular mansion late in 2003, and began restoration efforts in early 2004. This venture was a significant undertaking as the mansion was in severe need of overall restoration. No expense was spared to ensure the history and integrity of the home would not be compromised, and the Kansas City community could enjoy its use for many years to come. The Saathoff’s have dedicated their financial resources and worked full-time on both the restoration of the mansion and toward making it the finest venue in Kansas City for any special occasion. Their continued involvement sets Loose Mansion apart from other venues, as no one cares more about their customers than the owners of Loose Mansion.
Proof of a great venue is in the reviews available from past customers and awards given within the community and wedding industry. We’re proud of the many comments posted online from our past customers, and have included many in the “Reviews” section of this website for your convenience. Loose Mansion has received a great deal of favorable press from local media, receiving comments like “the finest new venue to open in Kansas City in 20 years.” Repeatedly, we have been recognized by The Knot brides as one of the nation’s finest wedding venues, and received their annual “The Knot Best of Weddings” awards. In 2013, this resulted in Loose Mansion being one of the first businesses to receive The Knot’s new prestigious, permanent “Hall of Fame Award.” This award is intended to honor members of the wedding industry across the United States who have had a long-standing dedication to brides and who have shown excellence in their profession. Wedding Wire has also awarded Loose Mansion their “Bride’s Choice Awards,” which are intended to recognize the top five percent of wedding vendors nationwide. In October 2015, the readers of the Pitch Newspaper in Kansas City voted Loose Mansion as the “Best Wedding Venue” in Kansas City. For two years (2008 and 2009), Channel 9, KMBC.com in Kansas City, administered an A*List website where the Kansas City community could vote for their favorite local businesses. Loose Mansion was voted “Kansas City’s Best Venue” for both years.
