    We had our wedding ceremony at the Des Moines Beach Park Meadow, followed by our reception in the Auditorium. We were absolutely thrilled with how great everything turned out. Both locations comfortably fit our 200 guests. The staff were friendly and accommodating on wedding day, as well as very responsive during wedding planning. We made absolutely the right decision with choosing the Des Moines Beach Park!

    Loved our venue and the responsiveness of all their staff, they truly made our day wonderful. . The Dining Hall's remodel is absolutely gorgeous. They allowed us to decorate the day prior, to put some of my anxiety at ease. My deposit was returned promptly after our wedding day.
