Small Church or Chapel Locations?

I am looking for a very small church or chapel for our ceremony.  We already have an outdoor location for our reception.  I would love something like a country style church but I don't know what's available in Des Moines or the surrounding area.  Any ideas?

    I have a friend that was married in the Candle Lit Way chapel in Dallas Center (west of Des Moines).  It looks like it may be what you are wanting. I didn't actually attend her ceremony as it was just family, so I don't have personal opinions, but she seemed very happy with the decision since she wanted small. http://www.candlelitwayweddingchapel.com/

    There's an adorable United Methodist church on Highway 163 just east of Pleasant Hill (right near SE Polk High School) - it's white with a tall, tall steeple.  It's called Ivy Centennial.  I think to marry in the United Methodist church, you need to agree to pre-marital counseling with the pastor, but it's worth checking out!
