VENUE SPACE + SERVICES
If your dream is an outdoor wedding, we had you in mind when designing Ashton Hill Farm Cedar Rapids. Have your ceremony overlooking spectacular views of the Iowa countryside. Custom built benches allow for comfortable seating for all your guests. Indoor ceremonies are held in the grand barn with gorgeous 18- foot windows overlooking the outdoor spaces. Our spaces are equipped with power for both indoor and outdoor music and lighting options.
Enjoy cocktail hour on our covered veranda and watch the sunset over the farm. The 1,800 square-foot veranda has residential outdoor furniture, bar, bistro lighting and overhead fans. Gather around three gas fire pits on the lower level veranda which includes comfortable seating and stunning outdoor views.
Your day begins with exclusive access to our gorgeous bridal suite. This space features an en-suite bathroom with makeup and hair area. We have a sitting lounge for relaxing and enjoying the day, as well as a second hair and makeup counter. The bridal suite is designed as the ideal pre-wedding preparation setting for the Ashton Hill Farm bride and her party.
A one-of-a-kind space for the gentleman of the day to dress, relax and enjoy pre-wedding preparation. Comfortable leather seating, 52-inch television and space to dress, the grooms lounge will leave the men feeling pampered.
Our residentially designed loft is a 900 square-foot comfortable space for guests to gather throughout your event. With a bar, gorgeous views of the main space, and comfortable seating, your guests can enjoy a glass of wine and hors d'oeuvres or a quiet conversation during your event. This is also the ideal space for the bridal party to sneak away after the ceremony and enjoy time together!
Founded by Ashton Hill Farm's Owner, Megan Knatz, in 2010, Take the Cake Desserts caters to weddings with desserts that are as delicious as they are beautiful. From custom cakes to cupcakes, mini pies, cheesecakes, donuts, cookies and much more, the possibilities are endless!
Bar service is run by Ashton Hill Farm to make your experience simple and professional. All bartenders are Ashton Hill Farm staff and will work to make your day carefree - imagine cocktails on the veranda, or sipping a glass of wine in the loft. We provide all the bar glassware and a variety of alcohol selections available. We customize each bar package to meet your needs and budget.
