    We had both our ceremony and reception at the Downtown Des Moines Embassy Club and couldn't have been happier with the entire experience! We worked primarily with Emily, and she was so responsive and flexible--especially as we planned from out-of-state--from our initial meeting and tour to lots of emails leading up to our wedding day and the entire wedding week. The venue itself is gorgeous, especially the chandeliers, but the views are truly breathtaking, and we loved sharing them with our guests who had never visited Des Moines before. The food was delicious, and several of our friends and family commented on how it was so much better than typical wedding food. We were really pleased and impressed with all of the staff, all of whom went out of their way to make sure everything was exactly how we wanted it and that we had a great wedding. Highly recommend!

    I would have given them more stars if I could have! The view from this room is spectacular. Floor to ceiling windows overlooking Des Moines in all directions! The staff was professional and the food was simply amazing. Head Chef Imre provided us with some of the best food I have ever tasted. The comment I heard, and keep hearing, from my guests was how wonderful the food was. Not only was it delicious, the presentation was fantastic as well.
    Everything about the DMC--the food, the views, the staff--made this a night my husband and I will remember forever. We couldn't have asked for anything better. I recommend this venue to any bride-to-be!!!
