We'd Do It All Again!

When our daughter got engaged we visited four venues in the Ames/Des Moines area. Glen Oaks was the last and we are so very happy we went with them. Our wedding was this past weekend and we feel like we got the Golden Ticket. The venue is gorgeous (we had the ceremony out on the croquet lawn), the food was fantastic, and every staff member was kind & accommodating. I cannot tell you how much we enjoyed working with Shannon, their catering director. It was like having our very own coordinator, wedding planner and friend helping the whole way through. We'd do it again in a heartbeat. Add Bella Flora into the combination and prepare for perfection!!!

Glen Oaks was a dream!

Glen Oaks was a dream wedding venue! We had our ceremony on the croquet lawn, cocktail hour on the beautiful veranda, and the reception inside. Such a unique and gorgeous venue - I loved having different areas and rooms for our guests to go. It truly felt like we had the entire building. The staff is also amazing! Emily - the event coordinator was absolutely fantastic to work with. We emailed back and fourth the entire process and met 3+ times and I have to say she is the most organized/professional human being I鈥檝e ever met. I don鈥檛 know how she does it! She is truly the BEST at what she does and she made our day exactly what we wanted with the perfect timeline. She handled our wedding so well even with the difficulties of Covid - we couldn鈥檛 have done it without her. I can鈥檛 thank her and Glen Oaks enough!

Best. Crew. EVER!

We had the absolute BEST experience with Shannon and her team at Glen Oaks!!!! Talk about great communication! They were extremely accommodating, professionalism to the nines- I could go on and on. My husband is an member at the club and I am a newbie, so it can feel daunting to ask for what you want in such a high-roller venue. Not only Shannon, but her dream team (and Judy at the front desk!!!) absolutely made my dream wedding come true. It is so comforting to continue to frequent GOCC when you know you鈥檒l be dealing with folks who routinely make every concern no sweat to adhere to and stress free. If we weren鈥檛 already members, we surely would be now!

Thanks Shannon, Judy, and the rest of the team! What a great launching pad for the next chapter of our lives. Cheers!

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!
