Occasions and Special Events

at BrightWater Bay

Our event spaces make your special occasion unforgettable.

Turn your next indoor or outdoor party into the event of the year at BrightWater Bay! Celebrate surrounded by 44 acres of pristine water, sandy beaches, and lush trees. While BrightWater Bay gives you the experience of a lakeside retreat, it’s less than 15 minutes from downtown Wichita and Eisenhower National Airport.

“The team at BrightWater made our day extra special. They made it easy to relax and focus on each other, instead of worrying about details.”

Indoor and Outdoor Wedding Venue

Exchange vows by the dock, beach, or the outdoor patio of The Venue, our two-story, 120-guest capacity event space, and bask in the beauty of nature. Brightwater Bay makes for a beautiful backdrop, whether you hold your wedding early in the morning when the air is cold and the chirping of the birds make for a charming accompaniment for your wedding march, or late in the afternoon when the soft, rippling surface of the lake sparkles against a gorgeous sunset.

If you prefer the conveniences of an indoor wedding, we’ve outfitted The Venue with amenities that make your wedding just as memorable and beautiful as one held under the open sky. Our event venue stands right by the water, so you still get dramatic views out of our floor-to-ceiling windows.
