Des Moines, Iowa Wedding Venues you need to consider

Des Moines is a great area for your wedding. The question is what venue to pick? Should we go romantic at a winery?

Des Moines Small Wedding Venues 

Need inspiration for where to host your small wedding? You’ve searched google and Facebook groups but all the venues around Iowa seem to be this large barn that doesn’t fit your vision. 

That is where I step in to assist! I’ve worked with some of the best vendors and venues in the Des Moines Metro AND surrounding areas. These places can really give you that romantic vibe that makes people question, “is this Iowa?”
