Our Thoughts:

This is one of those venues that makes us wish we could have a wedding do-over and get married here! This venue is one that has so much to offer, in fact it may be one of the dreamiest wedding venues we’ve ever come across! This farmhouse fresh wedding venue is just outside of Iowa City, Iowa! Their indoor-outdoor venue features handmade farmhouse tables for guests, spacious getting ready suites with a Scandinavian vibe, a beautiful maple tree ceremony location, a 100 foot wrap-around porch that is a fantastic rain backup location (spilling out onto the beautiful Cedars Edge Golf Course), and so much more.

Indoor-Outdoor Dream

If you’re looking for a venue with wonderful indoor/outdoor flow, you will love this venue. Their 30 x 12 foot sliding glass door is the focal point for your Main Hall ceremony. Above it sits an additional bay of windows that come together to make a 32 x 20 foot wall of glass. This allows light to pour in and brings the outdoors in. It’s your photographer’s dream. Slide them open to connect to the view and the outdoors beyond.
