Our Century Old Red Barn breathes authenticity. Built in 1898, you will be drawn to the wood-pegged hand-hewn beams the moment you step through the immense sliding barn door into this stunning space.

Our spacious venue seats over 300 guests, in addition, our well-groomed lawns are for the perfect setting for the outdoor ceremony you desire. We are nestled within acres of rolling open countryside.

The Rustic Rose Barn Venue is such an amazing space for weddings with all the modern amenities and trendy design. The property has a wide variety for unique photo opportunities. My personal favorites being the front lawn of evergreens and pond side pond. The staff is also extremely friendly and efficient with wedding day tasks.

I'm a wedding photographer, and I recently held a styled shoot at VOWS. From beginning to end, the team at VOWS was a dream to work with. Not only are the people lovely, but this space is simply gorgeous. The room itself is very versatile and could be set up in a million different ways, but also needs NO extra decoration for those who love a clean and modern look (like me). It's a bright, minimalist space just a few steps from some of the best restaurants, shopping, and activities in the metro and tons of parking available. The front windows let lots of natural light into the space, while the pendant lighting in the venue allows for a warm and moody feel. The moveable wall (which includes a plain white side, and a greenery side, depending on your preference) can be adjusted to divide the room or act as a backdrop that fits any size wedding day. The couples lounge is AMAZING as well, with the cutest mural of historical wedding photos that is such a fun getting ready backdrop. Can't say ENOUGH good things about VOWS, but highly recommend you check it out in person. I can't wait to shoot a wedding for future clients here!

They have center pieces to rent and they set up all the tables and linens so you have virtually no set up to do at the venue. You can’t hang stuff on the walls but the space so so beautiful and decorated already so you don’t really need much. The food was delicious also.

Located on Mt. Vernon Rd. SE in Cedar Rapids (10 minutes from downtown Cedar Rapids), our indoor and outdoor spaces are designed to hold events for up to 250 guests. Spacious grounds with open and wooded areas provide ample settings for photos. On-site catering and a staffed bar make it easy for you to get exactly what you want for food and drink. Our dedicated staff is present to make the process smooth and simple, and we’re so excited to help you celebrate!

I can't say enough good things about Rosedale. Firstly, the venue is stunningly beautiful. It really needs no "dressing-up". Secondly, Jen is so nice and so helpful. Not only did she answer all my silly questions but did so promptly and with a smile. Working with this venue was such a breeze it felt odd not to have to worry about so many things. We chose to go with the all inclusive package which meant we had access to the whole venue from getting ready to our outdoor photos, ceremony in the beautiful gazebo, and the reception hall. Lastly, the catering is fantastic. We attended multiple tastings and loved everything they served. We ultimately went with the classic menu simply because it fit into our budget the best. If we had more room in the budget, we would have gone with a custom menu because we tasted so many delicious offerings that were not on a set menu. I would highly recommend this venue and catering company.

prel·ude noun "An introductory performance, action, or event preceding a more important one." The Prelude was dreamed up by a couple who craved a feeling they had only experienced in far off lands and story books - They knew there were others out there who dreamed of running away to places that gave them that whimsical feeling again but couldn't see themselves ever doing it - So they decided to create a place that brought that whimsy and feeling to them - The result is one of the best & most unique venues in Central Iowa, located just 30 minutes south of Des Moines. The Prelude is for authentic people who crave a romantic dream from a vanished age. The Prelude isn't only a place that should be seen - It should be experienced.

We highly recommend The Prelude for any couple who is looking for something different for their wedding venue. With their black & white marble flooring, gold pillars and a vintage chandelier hanging from their high ceilings giving the space a glow. Its the perfect space for your dream wedding!

Bailey Farms Barn and Venue

5.0

New Virginia, IA
  • Up to 275 guests
  • Select services
  • Indoor & outdoor

We at Bailey Farms Barn & Venue are very detailed oriented with a very casual atmosphere and our goal is that you can say “I truly enjoyed my wedding” not “it went so fast it was over before it started”.

Montana and the staff at Bailey Farms were truly a dream to work with. Montana really never told me no - even when I requested three different meetings and walk throughs with her before the final meeting. When we booked this venue, they had yet to have the wedding and were still in the process of building, setting up and getting things together. I really had to trust the vision that she was selling when we booked and oh boy did they deliver. The house for the girls to stay in is so cozy and has more than enough room and beds for a large wedding party. It was stocked with everything we could imagine. Makeup wipes, bath salts, aromatherapy for showers, hangers, a coffee maker, various kitchen items, lighted personal mirrors and the list could go on and on. The beds were also so comfortable! There was a perfect amount of room for us to get ready the morning of. It was also the perfect distance from where the boys were staying. The barn for the boys is smaller and quaint but had everything the boys needed for the weekend. They had to share beds, but they didn't care! they had fully stocked bathrooms and kitchen along with the perfect amount of space for them to get ready the morning of. Because they have a majority of the decor that you might need already, it made set up and tear down so easy. When we arrived on Friday afternoon, the decor items that we requested from them were waiting for us in the tent to put where we wanted. All of the tables, chairs and backdrops were in place for us. We had the tent decorated fully in about an 2 hours. Montana showed up for the rehearsal and helped us walk through the ceremony and dealt really well with keeping our rowdy groomsmen in line. The day of, she was constantly checking on me to make sure I was okay, she helped direct all the vendors to where they need to be, and when we had to make the last minute call to move the ceremony inside because of the weather, she took 100% of that stress off of me and PROMISED me that it would be just as beautiful inside as it would be outside. Her and the staff pivoted quickly, smoothly and professionally. Every time I saw a staff member, they were so complimentary of me and the wedding and always asked if there was something they could do for me. Even with the weather and me moving the schedule up, they helped keep the peace, keep the schedule and keep me calm during a chaotic day. When it came time to clean up, they took care of a majority of it. Placing the things we brought on one table in the tent so when we came the next morning to pick it all up it was a breeze. Overall, I can't imagine having our wedding anywhere else. This review is honestly just the tip of the iceberg of all they did for us and my gratitude for them. I could really write a book. They are truly a huge reason why this was the best day of my life. I would work for them if I could and I will recommend them to everyone, always. A true dream come true.

While it’s not the cheapest venue out there it is by far the most beautiful and requires less decor - potentially saving you money on other items. The only thing that we wish the venue did have was a room for the groom/groomsmen to get ready.

Iris Aisle is a Victorian greenhouse that sits amongst our cedar grove in Madison County, Iowa. We built Iris Aisle ourselves, around the idea of creating a sanctuary where nature lovers could come to feel at home and be surrounded by medicinal plants and herbs and all of nature’s wonder, inside and out. Simplicity is our goal here, so we only host events of 75 or fewer people. We knew we wanted this place to be geared toward smaller weddings, because there is no other place in Iowa that does. So many venues want to go big or go home, but that’s not us. Instead, we want to shift the mindset of what this day is truly about, how true connection with those you love the most is deeply important.

The absolute best wedding venue ever! No decorations needed when your surrounded by absolutely beautiful nature and beautiful plants! My husband and I knew this wad out venue the second we saw it we didnt even go look at any other venues it was one and done for us. Also the owners are absolutely wonderful wholesome people and they will make your day even more special! We couldnt have asked for a more perfect wedding day.
