A bride and groom's dream come true
The new event coordinator, Emily, and the entire staff were phenomenal. We had to move our cocktail hour and dancing inside last minute due to weather, but they took care of every little detail without any hassle to us. Our guests keep telling us how much they LOVED the food. We also had a s'mores bar through Glen Oaks, and it was also a huge hit. Emily was really great with coordinating with our other vendors, so we could trust that our vision was executed beautifully. If you want a gorgeous location with tons of options and a team of experienced people who will take care of practically everything, Glen Oaks is that place.Sent on 10/19/2018

Glen Oaks has been great to work with. My Fiance' and I have been talking to them about using their venue for our wedding. They have been quick to respond and have answered any questions that we have. I am excited to see the beautiful venue in person due to the fact that we don't live in Iowa yet! Great place, beautiful grounds, and easy to talk to!Sent on 01/14/2019

Perfect November Wedding!
We got married in November 2018 and the day was an absolute dream! Emily, who just recently started, was INCREDIBLE! She was attentive, responded to my many questions leading up to the day, met with my mom as I am located in Chicago, and was key to the day running smooth! She helped coordinate and make sure everyone was where they needed to be. The club is beautifully maintained, the food was spectacular, and they know what to expect with weddings which makes planning a breeze. We were very happy with our wedding at Glen Oaks and couldn’t have imagined it anywhere else! The golf course makes for beautiful photos and backdrops. We would definitely recommend Glen Oaks to anyone getting married in the Des Moines area!Sent on 11/23/2018
Glen Oaks Country Club's reply:Thank you for the sweet words Cassie! It was a pleasure working with you, Patrick and your Mom to make sure that your day went PERFECTLY :) I look forward to you coming back and visiting. I saw your parents at Thanksgiving brunch at the club!
I have done makeup for many weddings here. The room for the bridal party to get ready in is great! Plenty of room for everyone. I usually see my brides take advantage of a continental breakfast or lunch that is served there while they are getting ready. Truely a much better option than a hotel suite, with a huge gorgeous window for getting ready photos and bridal portraits. Highly recommended!
Glen Oaks is one of my absolute favorite places to shoot! The building and property are gorgeous, the staff is professional, efficient, friendly, and well organized. I'm always excited when I get to photograph or create a wedding film for a Glen Oaks couple!
Glenn Oaks is one of our favorite places to work! Mallory is outstanding and creates an excellent venue for your wedding or other events!!
