Exploration Place was the perfectlocation for my daughter's dream wedding!

She & her fiancé (now husband) are Wichita elementary school teachers who invited their students to be in the wedding party. They wanted a location that was beautiful & that the children would also love! She was thrilled to say her vows standing in front of floor-to-ceiling windows in Waterway Hall. The architecture is lovely all-around and every photo was made even better by the outdoor view. (And the kids had plenty to look at if their attention span was short.) NBC Nightly News & Inside Edition were there filming the wedding & reception and the EP team was professional, accommodating, & genuinely happy for us. I would give 10 stars if I could!” – Stacey S.
