Tie the knot at Brightwater Bay, a gorgeous lakeside venue for wedding ceremonies and receptions in Wichita, Kansas. Our property spans over 44 acres of water, trees, and grass — a beautiful, natural setting that will make your wedding look and feel magical.

We are the venue of choice for couples looking for a picture-perfect indoor or outdoor wedding venue in Wichita. Brightwater Bay boasts a private lake surrounded by lush trees, green grass, and sandy shores.

Indoor and Outdoor Wedding Venue

Exchange vows by the dock, beach, or the outdoor patio of The Venue, our two-story, 100-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.
