Vendor Spotlight: Saints Center

If you’re dreaming of a venue with romantic grandeur, look no further than Saints Center, in Stuart, Iowa. This former church was voted the most beautiful in Iowa before it was burned by arson in 1995. After a $4 million restoration project, this old world beauty is now host to many more people and events. 

As you walk up the stairs, through the large double doors, you’ll enter the Main Hall. This giant room holds the sky blue dome overhead with modern steel beams and original exposed brick walls, perfect for large weddings. It’s a gorgeous venue for a ceremony and can be flipped for the reception. The Foundation Room on the main level features hand-carved limestone walls and the Chapel is even more intimate, with a small altar for a more traditional ceremony. Find out more about this breathtaking gem just 30 mins west of Des Moines at saintscenter.com.
