I've photographed several weddings at the Des Moines Botanical Garden and every event has been perfectly planned with fantastic venue help throughout the day. The attention to detail and expertise of the staff makes ceremonies and receptions an enjoyable time for the wedding party. As a registered photographer with Des Moines Botanical Garden, I admire and respect how the Botanical Center manages their relationships with professional photographers. And as a member of the Des Moines Botanical Garden, I'm thrilled to have such an amazing venue in our city! Looking forward to my next wedding at Des Moines Botanical Garden this spring!
