Perfect in each and every way!
Our experience using Honey Creek Resort for our September, 2019 wedding was nothing short of perfect!! Delaney Evers, our wedding manager, was the epitome of "above and beyond". She patiently answered each and every question (I had MANY), in a timely manner. Delaney addressed potential hurdles and challenges professionally, and ensured each detail was accounted for. She had the entire staff prepared for our weekend, and we truly believe if it was not for her thorough orginazition, things could not have gone as seamlessly as they did! Even a month after our wedding has passed, our guests continue to compliment us on how much fun they had, and how Honey Creek was an impressive "diamond in the rough".Sent on 10/20/2019
In addition to our excellent experience working with Delaney, we appreciated the wonderful banquet staff of Honey Creek - how friendly they, and the bartenders were the day before (for setup), and the evening of our reception. A special shout out to Kip and Linda. Guests were amazed that they were able to pull off serving a multi-course, plated meal to over 200 guests, and everything was served HOT and delicious. Friends and family commented how refreshing it was to attend an event like Delaney helped us plan at Honey Creek, one that is not the "new normal": plastic folding chairs and a buffet line... but a plated, sit down, served meal. I could go on and on, but in closing, what a wonderful place to host our wedding! Engaged couples living in the Kansas City, Des Moines, Iowa City, Kirksville etc. surrounding areas : you definitely need to consider Honey Creek for your wedding and reception. Get in touch with Delaney. You will be SO thankful you did!
Honey Creek Resort's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words, Jessie! I'm glad we were be able to put together the elegant affair you and Carter were after. Come back to visit soon!

Outstanding experience! Hidden Gem!
Our daughter and new son-in-law were married at Honey Creek in September, 2019. Delaney was our wedding manager and is new to the Honey Creek Staff as of approx late 2018 (so prior negative reviews should be discarded now!). Delaney comes with event planning experience from Los Angeles, California! And it shows! Better yet, she is local to the Honey Creek area, so can suggest local vendors or other hole-in-the wall ideas! We cannot thank Delaney enough for the assistance in planning the most beautiful, perfect wedding we could have ever imagined for our oldest daughter. We also had day-of assistance from Marsha. Both of them were in constant communication before the wedding, the day of the wedding, and even after the wedding is complete, they are still going above and beyond to execute wrapping up the loose ends to make the entire experience seamless! The banquet staff pulled off a delicious plated meal for over 200, and the bartenders were humorous and kind. We highly recommend Honey Creek for couples and parents seeking a wedding spot! This was a perfect halfway location for the couple (who lived just north of Kansas City) and us (who lives in Eastern Iowa) to have a "mini-destination" wedding. All within a 2.5 hour drive! Our guests enjoyed a weekend getaway!Sent on 10/20/2019
Honey Creek Resort's reply:Aleda, thank you so much for your review! It was such a pleasure working with Jessie and Carter and meeting your wonderful family. Come back and visit anytime!

Honey Creek is on a beautiful location and their inside/outside complex adds to the elegance. They have an experienced and helpful staff who, the last time we were there, were riding herd on at least two weddings simultaneously. Most notably, they were able to supply a back up sound system with a few minutes' notice when the first one stopped working as guests began arriving. We are looking forward to working with them again!
