Stacia and Zach were out of state at college until 5 weeks before the wedding. So as the mother-of-the-bride, I ended up coordinating a lot of the details with Blaine, the Fountains event coordinator Every question, concern or “we just need an opinion” comment that we sent Blaine’s way via email, was cheerfully and promptly answered. Stacia showed Blaine and her assistant, Katie, Pinterest pictures of the design look and floral arrangements she wanted at the wedding and they just got it! They had lots of design items for us to choose from and work with from heir Memrical Design Studio. But they were also fine with us supplying some of our own design items. The wedding décor and floral was really personalized and The Fountains venue was transformed into Stacia and Zach’s beautiful June 10, wedding of their dreams.
Brandon Stockton was our DJ and really was much more than a DJ! He was also the MC at the dinner. And because he works so many wedding at the Fountains Ballroom, Brandon just helped with the flow of events all evening. He was really about minimizing the wasted time so he could maximize the party and dance time. Stacia’s older sister said that Brandon was the BEST DJ at any wedding she’s ever attended in her life! He packed the dance floor and made the dance so much fun. Stacia and Zach’s friends and guests gave Brandon rave reviews.
Tammy Muecke was the photographer for both Stacia and Zach’s engagement pictures and for the wedding. The day of the wedding was warmer temperatures than we had hoped for – upper 90s. But Tammy had a game plan for the entire day and kept us all inside for pictures until she could move the wedding party outside when there was more shade and cloud cover. We just saw all the wedding pictures and they’re amazing!
In summary, we love the entire experience with hosting our daughter’s wedding at The Fountains Ballroom!

I had my wedding here June 24, 2016. This place is absolutely beautiful, and the staff is incredible. I could not have asked for a more perfect day. Blaine was our wedding coordinator, and she is so good at what she does and goes out of her way to make you're day the absolute best it can be. You won't be disappointed if you get married here. It's well worth the investment!

I absolutely loved having our wedding at the Fountains Ballroom! Our wedding planner was Blaine Muhle and our day-of coordinator was Katie Ristow. The entire planning process was insanely easy! Throughout my engagement, many of my friends were also planning their own weddings. Watching them search for vendors and work with so many different companies made me so thankful to have all my needs met in one place. I often felt like there was something else I should be planning for the wedding, but everything was done already! Our wedding planners looked at my Pinterest boards so they could capture the style of décor and flowers I liked and were easily able to create a look I loved.
Brandon Stockton was our DJ. He was so awesome! He made the night so much fun! I’ve been to seven weddings so far this year (three more to go!) and I have to brag that our dance was the best one I’ve been to! He packed the dance floor and had us out there until 11:30. He also did a great job during the ceremony. The music flowed so smoothly and he helped us time out my processional song perfectly. I was really amazed by how much more Brandon did than just the music. He was there to pour drinks for my wedding party and make sure our plates were in the right spot by the buffet so that there wasn’t a minute of wasted party time.
Tammy Muecke took our engagement and wedding photos and did a wonderful job! We had very hot weather on my wedding day (upper nineties!) but Tammy handled it like a champ. She took many of our photos inside so that we wouldn’t melt. This worried me at first since I really love outdoor pictures, but they turned out great! When the lighting and heat cooperated, Tammy took us outside and snapped some beautiful photos that will definitely be hanging on my wall! I’m so thankful that we had Tammy to capture all the special moments ofour day.

I would definitely recommend the Fountains Ballroom! But book now, because they fill up fast!

We had our wedding at Fountains West on April 23rd and it was absolutely amazing!! Blaine and Katie were our coordinators and everything was perfect. Our flowers and centerpieces were absolutely gorgeous, Tammy did our pictures and they are beautiful, and Q kept the party going all night long. Thanks so much to everyone at the Fountains West for taking our ideas and making them more than we could have imagined.

My husband and I were married in October 2015 at a Catholic Church but we had the reception at the Fountains Ballroom in Glenwood. The entire day went perfectly! Our decorations were perfect, the reception was VERY organized (which was one of my top priorities-I HATE chaotic receptions) and the staff was on the ball with everything behind the scenes. We STILL have people tell us it was the most fun reception they've ever been to!! One of our family friends called the Fountains "the Taj Mahal in the middle of a corn field." It is one of the most beautiful venues in this area and I will recommend it to anyone who is looking for venues!! Also, Tammy Muecke was our photographer and we absolutely loved her!! She took gorgeous photos of our wedding and reception and handled our drunk wedding party very well, bless her heart!! And Katy's Catering (from Glenwood) served the most phenomenal food!! We still have people tell us how amazing the food was at our wedding. Highly recommend her!! Our DJ was Q and he was seriously one of the best DJs I have seen at a wedding and I'm not just saying that. I told him I did not want any dull moments with people waiting around and trust me, there was never a dull moment. From the time we walked in things we're rolling, dinner was going, music playing, and he released tables for dinner by playing a trivia game...so clever!! Highly recommend Q!! I am so happy with the Fountains and will recommend it to anyone that asks!!

I used Fountains West for my ceremony and reception space on 10/03/2015.
Wow. This place is amazing! They do it all! They provide the D.J., photographer, florist, centerpieces, linens, and so much more!
First and foremost, I'd like to mention a woman by the name of Blaine, she is the wedding coordinator and a god send. She took my pins from Pinterest and made them come to life! She always responded to emails within 24 hours and was extremely flexible with my husband’s work schedule when it came to setting up our meetings. You can tell she loves her job and takes a special interest in every wedding she plans.
Our D.J. was Q and he was awesome! I really stressed to him that I wanted people on the dance floor and he made that come to fruition! He also followed our timeline to a tee. He quieted down the room when it was time for toasts and livened it back up when it was time to dance. He also did a perfect job of blending old and new music so everyone had something they could dance to.
Ashley was our photographer. We chose not to see each other before the ceremony. Unlike other photographers, she didn’t push us to see each other before, even though it’s easier for them. She made sure we got all of the shots we wanted, while still keeping us on our strict timeline.
I cannot stress enough how great this place truly is! They made my day so much better than I could ever have imagined! You will not be disappointed if you choose Fountains West!

Writing this review is hard because words can't even describe how amazing The Fountains Ballroom and all of their employees were to work with! I am a picky person and a perfectionist, therefore I am not always the easiest to please... But Blaine blew us away and our DJ Brandon kept the entire day moving smoothly, while always putting us first & ensuring we were happy!

Blaine was able to take my vision and turn it into something better than we could have dreamed! Our photographer, Tammy, went above and beyond taking pictures... SHE HELPED SERVE DINNER TO ENSURE WE STAYED ON TRACK WITH TIME! Lastly our DJ Brandon did pretty much everything from keeping the party going, to serving us drinks & DINNER, to helping clean tables!!!

I have planned events and I have attended big events in our community, NEVER have I received the kind of service that we did from The Fountains! The Fountains Ballroom & Blaine will always be my first (and only) recommendation to any Bride/Groom in the area!!!

My husband and I were married at The Fountains Ballroom in Glenwood last September. It was the perfect day. Everyone one of their staff was extremely helpful leading up to the event with planning and organization, and they were very flexible that weekend of the ceremony, allowing us to come in early to set up. I would definitely recommend The Fountains to anyone looking for a great venue that does almost all of the work! Working with Blaine, specifically, made everything a walk in the park.

We had the most amazing experience at The Fountains Ballroom for our September wedding! The fact that almost every service and vendor comes directly from their own team makes planning a wedding actually *gasp* EASY! Their entire team works together flawlessly, and everyone knows what their role is. The day of the wedding, we simply sat back and enjoyed the day with our friends and family, while everything else was coordinated for us. The decorations, venue, flowers, and table settings were absolutely beautiful and we were amazed at how it all turned out! We've gotten so many compliments from our guests, raving about everything from the venue, to the DJ, to the florist, to the coordinator. It was everything we could have hoped for and more!
