One of the perks of being a wedding DJ in Kansas City is being invited to attend functions that take place in some of Kansas City’s most presigious wedding reception event spaces…especially those I’ve not visited before.
Dan Meiners is a legend in event design in Kansas City and around the country. Although he also owns the Pennway Place Event Space, that is seamlessly attached to his flower studio, it is not uncommon to find his beautiful floral displays and meticulous and breathtaking event designs in hotels, country clubs and any number of wedding reception venues throughout the Kansas City area.
I will admit, that as a Kansas City wedding DJ, I know little to nothing about floral designs and arrangements. Like most, however, I can recognize the artistry that comes from vibrant color combinations that grab the eye and appreciate the aromatic scent of a bouquet that, in one whiff, takes your soul to a wonderous place. Touching the senses of sight and smell in an emotional way is, in my opinion, one of Dan Meiners’ greatest attributes.
Beyond flowers, Dan Meiners is incredibly detail oriented when it comes to matching the perfect combinations of event decor to reveal the personality and style of a Bride and Groom while transforming any ballroom into a work of art.
During my visit this week to the Studio Dan Meiners and Pennway Place Event Space for a Kansas City chapter meeting of the Association of Bridal Consultants (ABC), Dan gave a short presentation on how he goes about matching substance and style with a couple’s budget and vision. Listening to him speak about current, popular wedding trends as he demonstrated, through color, fabric and purpose, how focusing on the finer points of decor can produce extraordinary results, explains why Dan Meiners‘ floral and decor expertise is in such demand.
I believe, as a Kansas city wedding DJ that has performed in dozens of locations throughout the metro, that the Pennway Place Event Space is one of the most versatile Kansas City wedding reception venues. It can host up to 300 guests. And, with it’s white walls, white ceiling, white light fixtures and white fabric pillars, it is a blank canvas that, through proper up-lighting, can match any color scheme a Bride and Groom could possibly imagine.
The Pennway Place Event Space also has built-in speakers (also white) throughout the venue, tied to a central audio control panel that Kansas City wedding DJs can access with their sound system, allowing every guest in every corner of the room to be able to hear important announcements, toasts and, of course, the music. Dan Meiners also included a number of special effects into the Pennway Place Event Space that will appeal to couples that wish to add an extra element of excitement to their party.
Combining the above ingredients of convenience with the comfort and style of the social areas with comfy white sofa and easy chairs methodically scattered throughout the room…mixed with Dan’s amazing ability to magically bring any room to life through astounding decor and then…topping it all off with the inherent joy and fun of a wedding celebration…makes Studio Dan Meiners’ Pennway Place Event Space an ideal Kansas City wedding reception venue for imaginative Brides & Grooms.
Because I’m a Kansas City wedding DJ and not a professional photographer, I confess that my photos don’t do justice to the space. So, to get a better look at some of Dan’s creations, I invite you to check out the awesome photo galleries for Studio Dan Meiners and the Pennway Place Event Space at DanMeiners.com
