Warm and Welcoming!
We hosted our wedding reception at Bash and it was a wonderful experience! The team did a phenomenal job at making sure the night ran smooth from beginning to end, and the food was amazing. It is a welcoming and unique location in Downtown Des Moines and we were beyond grateful for Catherine and her team!

My wedding cake was something out of a top tier bridal magazine. Never in my wildest dreams, did I think my wedding cake would be so stunning. I didn't want to eat it because it was so beautiful. Not only was it the most beautiful cake I had ever seen, it was absolutely delicious. This vendor also catered my wedding and the no one believed that the same person who made my cake also catered (who is she super woman?!) This is a one stop shop and I can't believe that it is Des Moines's best kept secret.Sent on 09/13/2016
