Okoboji Weddings Is One Of Our Favorite Places For Video

The Iowa Great Lakes is one of my favorite places to do wedding videos. It is a beautiful area with an abundance of great scenery, nature and wide-open spaces. There are barns, churches, wineries, resorts, golf courses, parks and event centers where you can tie the knot in style. You can even get married at an amusement park if you fancy a quirky venue.

Here are some inspiring wedding venues in Okoboji, IA, that will make you wish your wedding day was tomorrow!

The Waterfront Bridges Bay is as charming as the name sounds. The luxurious location includes a lakeside wedding gazebo which catches the sunset for the wedding ceremony and great reception space. Guests can stay at the Bridges Bay Resorts next door, which is the perfect spot for pre and post-wedding day events.

The Barn at Okoboji in Spirit Lake is a dairy farm turned rustic barn wedding venue. The barn is beautiful, with a grand chandelier and charming wood interiors. Stay in the farmhouse the night before the wedding with two bridal suites for you and your bridal party to get ready in. They will even throw in some line dancing lessons for the couple to lead the way when the country-style tunes come on.

Arrowwood Resort and Conference Center is for brides and grooms who appreciate refined luxury combined with natural surroundings. The grounds are just dreamy, and the resort is fully set up for weddings of all sizes. This place has so many great spaces for wedding videography, especially the manicured lawns with rustic woods all around.

Swiss Acres Weddings and Events is another amazing barn venue. The venue features two barns that can be used for ceremony and reception. There is also a stunning outdoor spot for ceremonies where you can get married under two ancient trees with rolling farmland in the background.

And finally, Arnolds Park Amusement Park has several venues like the majestic Pavilion, Preservation Plaza and Roof Garden, where you can say your "I dos" and then do a photoshoot in the park. Or you can even get married inside the park amongst the rides.

Many couples choose Okoboji for their wedding to include the scenic lakes in their wedding photos. Some couples even get married aboard a luxury yacht to be right on the water as they join their lives together forever. You really do have a lot of options when it comes to getting married in the pretty Iowa city of Okoboji.
