Search no more- this is the place
Absolutely amazing! If you are on the fence about booking Honey Creek Resort as your wedding venue, want a destination wedding feel close to home, or are simplyimg searching for the perfect place WAIT NO LONGER- book it! This place helped make my wedding day everything I had imagined, all while in the middle of COVID-19 and maintaining a priority for health and safety. The grounds are beautiful, a true gem in Iowa! We had our ceremony and reception lakefront behind the Resort- gorgeous spot in my opinion especially when paired with canopy lights. There are multiple different venue locations to choose from, inside and out. They also have walking/running trails (some lakefront) we enjoyed for father daughter runs, vow writing, after dinner walks, and stunning wedding pictures. The staff worked very hard to make sure they were putting together mine and my husband's vision for the day, set up and tore down all decorations etc in a timely manner. The food was great and they were willing to work with our budget- something we were SO thankful for. The rooms are wonderful -clean and accommodating- so you can rest assured that your guests can truly relax and celebrate with you! The resort itself has such a welcoming and inviting feel to it, we absolutely felt like family walking it and were taken care of as such. The front desk staff members were attentive and kind, always willing to go the extra mile with joy. They made some of my favorite memories possible!! Honey Creek's diamond is Delaney (their wedding coordinator). This woman is kind, calm, caring, levelheaded, and passionate about what she does. She is a problem solver and creative thinker - similar to the rest of the staff- going the extra mile to make your day perfect! She thinks ahead and helps you have a plan ready for whatever may happen. She also is a tough cookie, ready to take charge and keep the peace so the day runs smoothly. She works diligently in the months leading up the wedding, keeping you organized and on schedule. All that to say, you are in good hands at Honey Creek Resort. With COVID-19 going on, we weren't sure we would be able to have the wedding we had wanted...but Honey Creek Resort helped make our wedding day the best day of our lives. They were flexible, professional, and kind- and choosing to have my wedding there was absolutely one of the best decisions I have ever made. The memories we have there are so sweet of course because of the people and love that are housed in them, but also because this special place (Honey Creek) made them possible. This is a place my husband and I look forward to visiting for years to come.

Absolutely the best experience we could ever have! Delaney and her staff knew what we wanted and how we wanted things before we could even express the words. They’re very attentive to your needs and are sure to take the time to hear you out! Not to mention the amazing views this resort has to offer. Our wedding and pictures are absolutely magical!Sent on 10/13/2020

We knew as soon as we drove into Honey Creek that we wanted to get married there, and Honey Creek staff went above and beyond to make our day perfect! We are both outdoorsy people and wanted to get married surrounded by nature. Honey Creek worked with us to create a brand new ceremony site that was exactly what we were picturing! But really we couldn’t have done it without Delaney and all the hard work she put into making our experience as stress free as possible. If Honey Creek isn’t on your list of possible venues yet, be sure to check it out!Sent on 10/08/2020
Honey Creek Resort's reply:Thank you for the kind words, Kayla! I love that we were able to find the perfect ceremony location for you and Chase. It was such a gorgeous day! :)

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!
