Absolutely perfect!7/02/2011 Katie D
The staff was extremely helpful. My bridal party simply set out the flowers and guest name tents. Everything else was handled by Christiani's. This meant we could focus on having a wonderful time. They made us feel so special, I could not have asked for anything more! My one issue was that with other venues we interviewed they stated the state troopers(required when serving alcohol) would stay out of sight, and that has been my experience and friend's weddings. The two state troopers at the lodge stayed out of the way, but remained visible the entire night, mostly about 10-20 from the bar.

First things first when you get engaged...find a venue! We had looked at a handful of venues and were pleased but when he visited Jester Park Lodge there was no question this was it. The lodge does cater to the outdoor, rustic, adventurer type but can also transform (with Christianis expertise) into any couples desire. The details of the wood interior, stone fire place and fantastic view off the deck practically buffer the need for decor. This place is a true gem in central Iowa. It is perfect!
Double Check your Banquet Event Order!8/24/2013 Kate D
The day was amazing-- but I am glad I was able to set up early (on Thursday!) There were a few things we had talked about in almost every meeting that weren't done. I was told it wasn't on my event order. Double check and make sure you tell them exactly what you want. Once the clarifications were made-- the staff did an amazing job getting everything set up! I loved it all!
