My wedding cake was something out of a top tier bridal magazine. Never in my wildest dreams, did I think my wedding cake would be so stunning. I didn't want to eat it because it was so beautiful. Not only was it the most beautiful cake I had ever seen, it was absolutely delicious. This vendor also catered my wedding and the no one believed that the same person who made my cake also catered (who is she super woman?!) This is a one stop shop and I can't believe that it is Des Moines's best kept secret.

We had a great wedding at this venue. The space accommodated both our ceremony and reception (180 guests) with plenty of room. Catherine and team were on top of everything that day and kept everyone happy. The food was super good and we loved their flexibility. We kept the dance floor hopping all night. You won't go wrong having your special event here.
