Okay okay, technically this one is closer to West Branch, Iowa, BUT it’s close enough to Cedar Rapids that I’m counting it! It’s conveniently closer to all the amenities of Iowa City and Cedar Rapids, but has the most beautiful rural feel. Little Lights on the Lane sits on a stunning golf course that doubles as entertainment on the wedding morning AND photos during golden hour. Additionally, Little Lights staff is truly incredible. They take care of every couple that has their wedding there. While Little Lights on the Lane is at a high price point, take it from me. ITS WORTH IT if you value experience. From the getting ready suites to ample indoor and outdoor space options, this is my favorite Iowa wedding venue to photograph at!
Epic Event Center is located in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. It has a large indoor space option, getting ready suites, and an outdoor shaded area for small to medium sized guest lists!
