New wedding venue officially opens in Topeka with ribbon cutting

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Brides and grooms in Kansas officially have a new place to walk down the aisle.

The Brownstone, Topeka's newest event space, held a ribbon cutting Tuesday morning. The historic building, located at 4020 N. 25th St., was originally designed as a diary barn in 1927, but later took life as a series of family homes, small businesses and most recently a bed and breakfast.

The main barn area now serves as a 2,400 sq. ft. reception space holding up to 200 people, and the venue is complete with two bridal and one grooms lounge.

"We put a lot of thought into the design of the building," said Abbey Brown, the managing director. "So we really wanted to keep the integrity of the barn. When you walk into the reception hall you still see the original bullet brick, the original wood beams, but then also we wanted to update it and make sure it had some of the new elegance to it as well."

The Brownstone is currently taking event reservations. For more information, call 785-235-0057 or email
