    The staff at The Iowa Arboretum was extremely helpful the day of our wedding and leading up to it. Any questions we had were answered and they were very professional. We felt that we were in good hands and everything went smoothly the day of the rehearsal and the day of the wedding. Our photos turned out beautiful thanks to the amazing scenery. We would recommend The Iowa Arboretum to any couple who wants a natural outdoor setting for their wedding.

    We got married in August and had our ceremony outside. It was absolutely beautiful and everything was taken care of for us- as far as setting the chairs out for our guests and tearing down. The grounds are stunning and perfect for pictures! I would recommend The Iowa Arboretum to anyone planning their big day!!

    It was very easy to work with the arboretum to plan my big day. They were very accommodating and even provided extra ice and popcorn for free on the day of the wedding when we ran out! It was a beautiful day!

I had the pleasure of playing violin at a wedding at the Iowa Arboretum! It was a beautiful setting, right by the lake, and surrounded by nature. Gorgeous!
