Gina (special event coordinator) and her staff at Holiday Inn Jordan Creek were absolutely superb. From our very first interactions and meeting with her to tour the reception space, Gina was so friendly, approachable, accommodating, and offered such helpful advice with regard to other vendors we would need (i.e. we were unsure which companies to book for our flowers/decor and limo and she had some great local info). With all the details and last-minute changes that come with planning a wedding, Gina always handled our questions and changes with so much poise, professionalism, and reassurance. She and her staff were an incredible help with reception set-up and tear-down. Her staff even placed all of our flowers/decor items on a couple of tables at the entrance to the ballroom to make packing up the next morning a breeze - which gave us more quality time to spend with our families the day after. We opted to rent a private room for breakfast at Johnny's the next morning to say goodbye to family who were leaving that day, which depending on clean-up logistics isn't always feasible to do and we're so happy that it worked for us at Holiday Inn. To top things off, Gina and her staff left goodies in our bridal suite for us, including a bottle of champagne and a pair of Johnny's wine glasses. The food and drink at Johnny's was amazing, we can't tell you how many of our guests told us Johnny's was the best wedding meal they had ever had. From beginning to end, we truly loved our experience with Holiday Inn. We had absolutely no last-minute concerns approaching our wedding day, which allowed us to fully relax and take it all in :)

There are so many things to account for and worry about with wedding planning. In our case it was the rehearsal dinner and, planning it in West Des Moines from the Chicago suburbs could have made it that much worse. Turns out, we didn’t have to worry about much at all! From the day we first visited the Holiday Inn facility to the actual event six months later, Gina Whitehead made us feel completely at ease about everything. She provided us all the details and then, without ever stopping with her positive and infectious personality, did it again when we lost them the first time. She went out of her way to accommodate our crazy ideas (we did an “At the Movies” theme) and found lots of ways to enhance our theme. Still, when you are five hours away, nervousness creeps in. When we arrived, she was ready for us and the plan was executed flawlessly. And while I’d like to give Gina all the credit, her staff was pretty darn impressive as well. The set-up, the service, and the tear down were a breeze thanks to her extended team. And, while our event consisted of just 40 people, I also witnessed Gina demonstrating the same quality service and attitude to a couple who was planning a much larger wedding reception in the ballroom. If you are looking for a great venue and an even better event planner to help take some of the stress away from your big event, I strongly recommend Gina Whitehead and her amazing team!Sent on 05/07/2018
