“We had our wedding reception at Steeple Square and I’m SO glad we did! This venue is absolutely gorgeous with so much rich history, new renovations, and amazing staff! The steeple square manager was the BEST! She worked with my now husband and I for MANY MONTHS as we were constantly changing our plans due to COVID-19. She was so kind and patient with us, not to mention extremely flexible! She made sure our every need was taken care of. She met with us multiple times and would respond promptly to emails & phone calls. Our wedding reception went so smooth thanks to the campus manager & the other staff, we didn’t have to worry about a single thing! Even during Covid-19, they made sure we all had an amazing night while remaining safe. All the tables & chairs were spread out, we had extra tables so guests would feel more comfortable, and there was hand sanitizer and masks available for everyone. I would HIGHLY recommend having an event at Steeple Square! You won’t regret it!”

“We couldn’t imagine our wedding having been anywhere else! Your venue and help were what made the day happen flawlessly. I wasn’t nervous at all on the wedding day and that was due to the fact that I trusted Steeple Square to help with any problems that arose. We can’t thank you enough!”
—  Allison and Dan Tomash

“The Iowa Artists event at Steeple Square was awesome! EVERYONE was in awe of the space! And, as artists, they very much appreciated the open space, the almost ethereal light, the art, the history and the potential that your board, donors and volunteers envision! The casual seating you created in the front was a very nice place for our members to mingle before the meeting. LOVED hosting our Regional Show there! Thank you for the opportunity!”
—  Barbara Heitzman
