My fiance and I are planning to get married in June 2013 but we wanted to lock down the reception site as soon as possible. We are struggling to find places that fit what we want.
We would love to bring our own food and make our own decorations if possible. Our wedding will be at a church in Ankeny, so we would like it to be somewhere within a 15 minute drive or so.
Our budget is at around $1000 for the location, but that is flexible.
Does anyone have a suggestion? We have looked online, visited places in person, and just can't seem to find the right fit.
