We are Matt, Teresa and Garrett Wolff - the names behind The W Banquet Hall. When we got married in Lawrence in 2006, we had a hard time finding that perfect place to have our special day. We are both from a small town in Kansas and are used to friends and family renting the local community building for special events. We loved the idea of this, but wanted to take it a step further. That's when The W Banquet Hall was born.

After graduating from the University of Kansas, we made Lawrence our permanent home. Teresa has been a hairstylist since 2001 and graduated from KU in 2008. Matt graduated from KU in 2007 and is a teacher and coach. In 2011, we opened The W Banquet Hall and in 2016, our son Garrett joined our world. We would love to meet you and show you our space. We have hosted many weddings in beautiful downtown Lawrence and we know you will fall in love with the event space. Please contact us today to book your perfect event!
