There are so many things to account for and worry about with wedding planning. In our case it was the rehearsal dinner and, planning it in West Des Moines from the Chicago suburbs could have made it that much worse. Turns out, we didn’t have to worry about much at all! From the day we first visited the Holiday Inn facility to the actual event six months later, Gina Whitehead made us feel completely at ease about everything. She provided us all the details and then, without ever stopping with her positive and infectious personality, did it again when we lost them the first time. She went out of her way to accommodate our crazy ideas (we did an “At the Movies” theme) and found lots of ways to enhance our theme. Still, when you are five hours away, nervousness creeps in. When we arrived, she was ready for us and the plan was executed flawlessly. And while I’d like to give Gina all the credit, her staff was pretty darn impressive as well. The set-up, the service, and the tear down were a breeze thanks to her extended team. And, while our event consisted of just 40 people, I also witnessed Gina demonstrating the same quality service and attitude to a couple who was planning a much larger wedding reception in the ballroom. If you are looking for a great venue and an even better event planner to help take some of the stress away from your big event, I strongly recommend Gina Whitehead and her amazing team!

My husband and I were down to two reception venues, and I am SO glad that we chose The Holiday Inn! Right as soon as we signed with them, nearly all the stress of the reception went away! Their wedding coordinator, Gina, was fabulous to work with! We could tell right away that she loved her job and knew what she was talking about; she definitely has experience in wedding receptions! Gina was so great about all of our questions along the way, responded quickly, accommodated our special requests, and really made the reception the least of our worries. And oh my goodness - the catering from Johnny's Italian Steakhouse is AMAZING! All of our guests are still raving about the delicious food that we chose for the reception. We didn't have to worry about set up, tear down, or clean up - the hotel takes care of all of that for you! Choosing this hotel was probably the best choice we made out of all of the wedding decisions we had to make!!

Gina (special event coordinator) and her staff at Holiday Inn Jordan Creek were absolutely superb. From our very first interactions and meeting with her to tour the reception space, Gina was so friendly, approachable, accommodating, and offered such helpful advice with regard to other vendors we would need (i.e. we were unsure which companies to book for our flowers/decor and limo and she had some great local info). With all the details and last-minute changes that come with planning a wedding, Gina always handled our questions and changes with so much poise, professionalism, and reassurance. She and her staff were an incredible help with reception set-up and tear-down. Her staff even placed all of our flowers/decor items on a couple of tables at the entrance to the ballroom to make packing up the next morning a breeze - which gave us more quality time to spend with our families the day after. We opted to rent a private room for breakfast at Johnny's the next morning to say goodbye to family who were leaving that day, which depending on clean-up logistics isn't always feasible to do and we're so happy that it worked for us at Holiday Inn. To top things off, Gina and her staff left goodies in our bridal suite for us, including a bottle of champagne and a pair of Johnny's wine glasses. The food and drink at Johnny's was amazing, we can't tell you how many of our guests told us Johnny's was the best wedding meal they had ever had. From beginning to end, we truly loved our experience with Holiday Inn. We had absolutely no last-minute concerns approaching our wedding day, which allowed us to fully relax and take it all in :)

What a great experience! Jason was fantastic--super personable, helpful, knowledgeable and was able to accommodate my vision for a small, simple wedding reception without me feeling pressured to do or have more than I was comfortable with. I was able to leave it in his very capable hands and just enjoy the party! The food was delicious, the space was perfect as Jason took care of it all, staff was friendly and every one of my guests had a great time. Many thanks, Jason! You are a gem! -Angie Cumings

This venue was a perfect fit for our combined ceremony and reception. Upon meeting Jason for the first time, we had all of our questions answered and felt very comfortable allowing him to help coordinate our special day. Through the whole process, Jason responded quickly to all our questions and concerns. He worked hard to make everything that we hoped for possible. After every meeting we felt reassured by Jason's passion and drive to make our day perfect. He has a great balance of giving helpful advice and also listening to our ideas and desires. It was very apparent that Jason's goal was to exceed our expectations for our wedding day. The Hotel and restaurant also provided very accommodating staff and delicious food. All of our guests had wonderful comments about the meal. We would highly recommend this venue because of the food, service, and Jason!

The Holiday Inn was phenomenal!!! My husband and I could not have been happier with our service at our wedding! The wedding coordinator through the hotel, Jason, was awesome!!! I highly recommend everyone book here. The food and service was amazing. Very reasonably priced as well compared to other vendors! We wanted to be at a hotel, so no one had to drive home at the end of the night. By the time you rent another venue and pay for food it is comparable to going with the Holiday Inn. I would use them again in a heartbeat! Jason (the holiday inn wedding coordinator) was top notch and could not have asked for anyone better!!! :)

We had our wedding reception here in September 2017. We couldn’t have found a better place to have our reception! Gina was super easy to work with and very responsive to all of our questions (and there were a lot!) We got there the day before to set up and Gina was always around to help with anything we needed. The other staff at the hotel were awesome when we needed things at any time day or night. The reception and the food were wonderful! Gina had everything turned on and lit up before the party got there. She worked with us to get a timeline for the entire evening to make sure we didn’t have to worry about a thing! Tear down was made especially easy as the staff moved everything to one part of the ballroom so we could easily pack it and head home. We had so many wonderful comments from our guests about how awesome everything looked, the politeness of the staff and the wonderful food! We couldn’t have had a more perfect night!
