    Such amazing place to hold your wedding and/or reception! The staff is AMAZING! I cannot stress enough how helpful they were. Made the experience so much fun and stress free. The food was amazing and the night went flawless all because of their attention to detail. They are so wonderful!

    Working with Molly and Mandy was absolutely awesome. They were kind, professional, and able to meet our every need. The venue itself is beautiful and spacious, and our guests were floored by the service and elegance of our reception. The venue is a little pricey, but we were absolutely impressed by the quality of service we received. Catering must be provided by their in-house chef (DELICIOUS!), and alcohol must be purchased through the conference center as well. If you book with this venue, you will be invited to a mock-reception, where you can view various table decor, add-ons, and (this is the best part!) get an opportunity to taste various hors d'oeuvres and a buffet-style meal. I would absolutely recommend this venue to anyone in the Des Moines area; you definitely will not be disappointed!

    I found that setting a menu and extras to be served to guests lacked flexibility that I would have appreciated. However, the food was excellent and very promptly served (plated meal). The staff at the reception was professional and responsive, and handled completely the set up and clean up / tear down, which really allowed us to enjoy our day and our evening celebration.
