Getting In

The Des Moines International Airport (DSM) is the closest airport to the wedding venue. It is about a 15-20 minute drive from the airport to the venue and hotels.


We have reserved a block of rooms at the following hotels. The Hampton Inn is 5 minutes from the venue. The Rewind Hotel is 10 minutes from the venue but is offering a complimentary shuttle for our guests. There will be at least 1-2 shuttles taking over our guests before the wedding and then picking up once the wedding is over.
