We had back to back tours until 10pm last night. The reactions and engagement from parents and couples make everything worth it. Countless hours and meticulous planning goes into this space. We accomplished 21 small-large detailed tasks this week. We are completely obsessed with the smallest details and have many more coming throughout the year. Some are obvious updates, some are such fine details that only the most obsessed clients will realize. Chords hidden. Trash cans strategically placed, edging, scents etc. It’s all the finest details that make the difference between “good and cute” and “exceptional and gorgeous”. We’re always striving for exceptional for our guests. #outdoorwonderful #love #wedding #iowa

My husband and I got married at Raspberry Hill last year on May 17th. For our one year anniversary we had planned a trip to Switzerland and Italy but it was unfortunately cancelled due to Covid-19.

However, we were fortunate enough to spend our one year anniversary weekend at the place where it all started!

I highly HIGHLY recommend Raspberry Hill. Not only is it a gorgeous property but the owners, Brad and Gina are the sweetest, nicest people around. I plan to go back again and again!

Did you know that Raspberry Hill also has a campground permit? ⛺️ We even have future plans for cabins!
How many other Wedding Venues in Iowa can say that???

Gov.Reynolds made the announcement during her Wednesday news conference and said the businesses allowed to reopen, with safety measures in place, include:
*****Campgrounds*****
Any public or private campground may reopen so long as they implement reasonable measures to ensure social distancing.

If you are the ADVENTURE type, a Campground themed wedding would be a blast at Raspberry Hill! You can safely social distance with our 74 acres. We also have several social distancing fun activities with fishing, 25 acres of walking trials, tube down the stream, one couple set up a disc golf course for their wedding, another group hired a private goat yoga class, a steal drum performer was rented by a group down at the picnic area, bonfires, one wedding had the local MacuBana food truck serve down by the pond, and so much more!
We are here to help you put FUN, safe, social wedding memories at Raspberry Hill!

Amazing photographer!

Amazing photographer!

In the hours leading up to the wedding, while I am with the bride and bridesmaids getting ready, I offer one piece of advice and a challenge to the bridesmaids:

"The dance floor will only be as fun and full as the bridesmaids make it."

This group worked hard at it. So hard they wore everyone else out by this late point in the evening.

Together we CAN have family fun, help small businesses, and help Iowa's 1st nonprofit care farm Cultivating Hope Farms with Ames 1st "Down on the Farm Drive-in Movie"!

We did buy our copyrights from Disney for this showing of Incredibles May 8 and possibly May 9! We only have 50 spots available and 20 have already been taken!
Pre-register and prepay $10/car SOON at:

Even in the best of circumstances, common leisure activities, like going to the movies, can be challenging for children with autism. The expectations of remaining quiet and sitting still, along with the loud volume and darkness of a theater, is just too much for a child’s sensory system to manage. Many theaters offer sensory friendly movies. Now that theaters are closed due to COVID-19, even that is not an option.

Raspberry Hill is offering a drive-in movie night for all families to safely enjoy a movie during this time of social distancing. Families can remain in the comfort of their cars and even enjoy a hotdog meal and popcorn delivered right to their window!

🚗 Register to prepay $10/vehicle at: [email protected]

🍿Pre-order the number of $7 hotdog basket which includes popcorn and drink at:
[email protected]

It's tough finding safe family activities these days. Come out and join us for the movie on Friday, May 8th or May 9th at 8:00! Space is limited so please register! Rain date has been changed to Sunday, May 10 at 8pm.

Donations are appreciated and will benefit Iowa's 1st
care-farm nonprofit, Cultivating Hope Farms programing for our community.

Introducing the Heart of Iowa Wedding Showcase for 2019!

Have you been to Bridal Shows and sure you meet a lot of vendors but you walk away wondering what did you really take away from it? After a year of researching all the local Wedding and Bridal Shows throughout the state of Iowa, both as a “Bride” planning my 15th Anniversary Vow Renewal, and as an Officiant who was participating as a vendor, I got a firsthand glimpse of the Pros and Cons, the shows that were a hit and the shows that ultimately bombed for Bride and Vendor alike. After a full year on the circuit I decided something new needed to be attempted. I also noticed that it was rare to come across Wedding Musicians, let alone the ability to sample from multiple types all in one place.

Thus the ideas for the Heart of Iowa Wedding Showcase started brewing. They came to a full boil when I met with Taylor from the Radisson who was just as eager as I to start a successful show! So lets start with what makes us different... While we will have the Wedding Vendors available from 10:00 am for VIPs, 11:00 am for General Admission guests there will be an additional room for our guests to visit that will feature two Musician’s Showcases but also a Break Out Session: “The Importance of your Ceremony” with local wedding Minister for 25 years, Pastor Joseph of “Our Forever Promise” and myself, a wedding officiant for 18 years, Jasmin Devitt of Jade Li Weddings & Events! We will talk individually on some of the most important aspects of your ceremony, discuss the statistics and logic for pre-marital counseling, allow some time for Q & A with us, and wrap up with the mysterious new wedding product reveal from Jade Li in collaboration with TandemHart.

The Musician’s Showcase I starts at 11:00 am with a variety of Wedding Singers, Acoustic Guitar, Ukulele, Pianist and instrumentalists playing 20 minute sets with a projection slide show providing the artist’s contact information. At 1:00 pm we start our Break Out Session: “The Importance of your Ceremony” with Pastor Joseph and myself. Then resuming at 2:00 pm is the Musician’s Showcase II for the bigger, louder, sometimes more rowdy Wedding Bands. You will get to hear samples from artists available for your Ceremony and/or Reception Music! After the show ALL Ticket Purchasing Guests will receive a Heart of Iowa Wedding Showcase CD sampler in the mail within 2 weeks, for production and shipping. V.I.P. Ticket holders will also get a link to download all or some of the MP3s that were created and distributed to the Musician’s for their future promotional use. This way you can share the samples and get input from family or friends that may not have been able to attend! Think of it as a Bridal Show with educational aspects and concerts all day!
