“We had our wedding reception at the Territory Ballroom. Nicky and Shawn made our wedding planning process a breeze. I planned a wedding from out of state and Nicky provided recommendations for local vendors, coordinated with vendors for set up and deliveries, and listened to our goals for the day. The space and their hospitality exceeded all our expectations. Our guests and ourselves had a wonderful evening in Council Grove. Additionally, we stayed in the upstairs suite after the reception which was convenient and luxurious. We highly recommend this space and these people.”
