We had our wedding at the Fountains Ballroom on September 16th. It was such a beautiful day (that went by way to fast) and we are still so happy about how everything turned out! Our day couldn’t have been more perfect. The staff was so helpful from the very beginning. Blaine helped our families to plan the perfect wedding since we had no clue even where to begin! We asked a TON of questions and the staff was always very responsive and helpful. The day before the wedding Bethany/Blaine allowed us to come in to drop off decorations and Bethany provided her expertise with what else we should pick up last minute for the final touches. We had a bit of a scare when the company we were going through for some rental pieces fell through and the Fountains Team was quick to provide help to ensure we had everything we needed. When we arrived at the fountains on the wedding day they had all the decorations completely set up and everything ran so smoothly throughout the entire day! We had two photographers Tammy and Hector and they captured some amazing moments and we are SOOO very thankful for all the pictures they took! I LOVE photos and I was so excited to see how amazing they turned out (the only thing we didn’t get to capture is the groom with each of his groomsman/ushers which I didn’t know till I got the photos back). Overall we were very impressed!!! Also Our DJ, Brandon, was able to keep the crowd engaged and dancing the entire night and he made sure we always had what we needed (drinks, cake, etc.) I had so many guests come up to me stating how gorgeous the entire wedding was and how our wedding was the most fun wedding they have ever been too! I would absolutely recommend to the Fountains Ballroom to anyone as they were able to give us the wedding of our dreams!

I absolutely love the venue! It is so beautiful and can easily be transformed into the wedding of your dreams. You can easily have an outdoor ceremony with an indoor reception or both indoor which is nice in case of the weather you have a plan B. Blaine and Bethany were amazing and did everything to make my wedding day a dream come true. I highly recommend this venue!

From the day that my now husband showed me pictures of Fountains Ballroom and said "How about here?", I've been in awe. The ballroom is absolutely stunning and is surrounded by natures's most beautiful scenes. This place is visually everything I wanted for my wedding! When we contacted them, our messages were almost immediately answered by Katie, our wedding designer. Katie is also absolutely amazing! She took what little ideas we gave her, and ran with them, turning them into everything we wanted. We honestly could NOT have asked for anything more! Katie went above and beyond! She made sure that all of our plans were exactly what we wanted, and assured me that everything would be great when I started to have meltdowns. The day of, she continued to amaze us. She was on top of everything that was going on and made sure everyone was where they needed to be when they needed to be there. She bounced back and fourth between my bridal suite (STUNNING :) ) and the guys' suite making sure everyone was doing well. Katie also made our flower arrangements. I'm not the type to get emotional over flowers, but Katie created something so beautiful for my bridesmaids and me....that I became a blubbering mess! There are no words for it. But I had my bouquet preserved! :) It's still absolutely beautiful! Our photographer, Tammy Muecke, was also through Fountains Ballroom. She did our engagement session as well as our photography for the day of our wedding. We were blown away by our engagement session, so we could only imagine what our wedding pictures would be like. Again, she blew us away! And was super easy to work with when it came to us wanting to take pictures literally almost everyone! Our DJ was Brandon, who is by far the best DJ both of us have ever had the pleasure of meeting! He was super awesome to work with and gave suggestions when we were stumped based on what kind of music we normally listen to. Brandon was so on top of things, and not just the music! AMAZING!

The Fountains Ballroom was nothing short of a dream come true for my husband and I. We did things a little backwards and picked out the venue before we were actually engaged because we were on a crunched timeline (less than 3 months). Blaine was a miracle worker and helped us settle on a date and timeline to make things as smooth as possible as we were simultaneously planning a move to Germany, less than a month after the wedding. We were living in Virginia during the whole planning process and never even saw the venue until 3 days before the wedding. But Blaine and Katie brought my Pinterest vision to life and it was more than we ever could have hoped for!

We did 2 skype dates and Blaine was very responsive to my calls/texts. They were also eager to bring our dream of having our pups in the wedding come to life! The dogs were free to roam between the bridal suite and grooms suite and had a blast. The day of was seamless, with the help of Katie (our day of coordinator), Tammy (our photographer), and Brandon (our DJ). Tammy was a pup lover and captured the most precious moments with our babies and I am beyond excited to see our pictures! She also helped keep on schedule so we could keep with tradition and not do a first reveal. Given that everything else about the wedding/planning process was not traditional, this piece was particularly important to us. Thank you, Tammy!

Brandon was also a pleasure to work with and has a true passion for music and keeping the dance floor hoppin! We were unsure of a lot of songs we wanted for the ceremony, but he provided great suggestions and made it a mix of modern and traditional. He was also much more than a DJ, ensuring the bridal party had full glasses throughout the night and delivering cake to the guests. Thanks Brandon!

As I said before, things could not have gone better. October 23, 2016 is one day we will cherish for forever and a large part is due to the great teamwork and passion of The Fountains Ballroom staff!

Everything exceeded our expectations. We received so many compliments from all over our guests. The best thing was we didn't have to worry about all of the details because they took care of it all. Blaine and
Katie were amazing to work with. We loved having Justin take our photos. Joel did an amazing job as the DJ keeping everything going. I don't think the dance floor was ever empty! Thank you

My wedding happened at The Fountains Ballroom location in Iowa on October 8, 2016. From the very beginning, my experience with the facility and staff was amazing. Blaine and Bethany were so accommodating throughout our entire planning process. They got to know me and the style I wanted for my wedding very well and executed my theme well.
The day before my wedding, my rose petals that I ordered from an outside floral shop didn't show up and I was devastated. I contacted Blaine to figure out a solution, and The Fountains Ballroom delivered by having rose petals for the day of my wedding. When my make-up artist spilled make-up all over the train of my dress, Bethany knew exactly how to get the stain out and did in a matter of minutes. I honestly don't know what I would have done if I had my wedding at any other venue.
The venue is beautiful, and the staff exceeded my expectations.

I had my wedding at The Fountains Ballroom on September 17th and I have to say I am still beaming with happiness about how it all turned out. From the very beginning Blaine and Katie were extremely helpful about helping me figure out the logistics of everything and were very transparent about cost and how the planning would go moving forward. They kept my mind at ease by answering all of my questions in a timely manner, listening to my millions of requests, and offering their expertise throughout the process. The entire staff at The Fountains Ballroom made my wedding day experience wonderful! I really didn't have to worry about anything on my wedding day which was such a relief. Everything was decorated even better than I planned and imagined and all of the events throughout the night went off without a hitch. The DJ kept the crowd engaged, the photographer captured some truly amazing moments, and Katie (the wedding day coordinator) was there for me through everything throughout the day. I still can't get over how beautiful everything was, they truly brought my vision to life. The location itself is beautiful, and combined with the talents at Memrical design studio, makes for a truly stunning day. I had so many guests come up to me and say that this was the most gorgeous wedding they had been to. I would absolutely recommend The Fountains Ballroom to anyone getting married and hoping for an outdoor/indoor wedding. My family all lives out of town and they truly made the whole process seamless for me. I can't recommend them enough!

My husband and I were married on Aug. 6th 2016. We had our ceremony at a church in Omaha and the reception at The Fountains Ballroom in Glenwood. Memrical did all of our floral and design, even the floral for the ceremony at the church! Blaine is so passionate about helping brides figure out exactly what it is they want to see on their special wedding day and I was so thankful I had her to consult with! Brandon was our DJ and I can't say enough wonderful things about him. We had so many compliments on our DJ, I believe he is the very best there is!! Bethany was there on the day of to make sure everything was good to go and also offered to help in anyway she could!! If you are looking for a beautiful venue and a great all around service, I would highly recommend The Fountains in Glenwood!

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!
