Des Moines Area ceremony

I am finding tons of venues for receptions, but I'm stumped on Ceremony venues.  We're getting married July 7, 2012 and I would like to avoid an outdoor wedding because of the risk of rain and it'll be hot.  Any ideas???

    The Candle Lit Way Chapel in Dallas Center and The Church of the Land at Living History Farms.  There are a ton of non church places too.  I have seen weddings at the Temple for Performing Arts, the Botanical Center, and a couple of hotels.

    Our ceremony is at the Raccoon River Nature Lodge, in WDSM. Same boat as you - I didn't want to be outside and I didn't want a church. Our wedding is in September but I'm mega excited about our venue - It's on the Blue Heron lake and the room itself has a big fireplace at one end and then exposed beams and beautiful floors. Take a look!

    How big is your ceremony?  The Wedding Chapel in clive holds about 40, but their ministers can also do off-site (a few people at my work are using them).  You can also look into Unity Church in Des Moines ...

    Hmmm, no outside that's a hard one! I would say that Racoon River Lodge. it is so pretty inside! and if you face the windows you get the view of the pond!

    Sorry, I should have mentioned, we're having about 300 people at our wedding.  Unfortunately, that narrows the search a lot.
