The Prelude was dreamed up by a couple who craved a feeling they had only experienced in far off lands and story books - They knew there were others out there who dreamed of running away to places that gave them that whimsical feeling again but couldn't see themselves ever doing it - So they decided to create a place that brought that whimsy and feeling to them - The result is one of the best & most unique wedding venues in the Des Moines area, located just 30 minutes south of West Des Moines. The Prelude is for authentic people who crave a romantic dream from a vanished age.
