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!
