Venue Tour

Put on your formal attire, grab your honey and friends, and join us for a night full of dancing and fun!

Ticket price includes entry into DJ'ed event, complimentary first beer or glass of wine, use of photo booth, and appetizers & desserts.  There is also a choice of an upgraded ticket that includes shuttle to and from the event as well as a hotel room at Holiday Inn & Suites in Council Bluffs.  Shuttle will leave promptly from hotel at 5:30, so be sure to be on time!  We will do our best to accommodate room requests (king bed or two queens), but availability is on a first come basis.  Valid credit card and ID will be required to check into hotel room.

We strongly encourage you to dress the same decade as when your high school prom was or your funniest 4.20 apparel, but as long as you've got clothes on, you're good!

Willow Creek invites visitors to come and experience a rustic, country retreat just a short drive from the Omaha/Council Bluffs metro. Surrounded by trees, native grasses, and flowers, Willow Creek will take your breath away from the moment you step onto the property. Some of Iowa's prettiest rolling hills provide the background for helping create memories that will last forever.



Big ChangesComing!

Evolution is a part of life and we at Willow Creek are also evolving.

Beginning in May of 2021 we are going to shake things up a bit. We will begin to offer multiple day weekend weddings packages. We will still be booking single day packages as well but for the first time ever, we will be offering multiple day rentals as well. This has been by several requests over the years to do so. 

Since we did our first wedding sixteen years ago, it has always been our goal to be one of the very best wedding & reception venues. During this off season and the off season following the 2020 season leading into 2021, we are dedicating a great deal of time and money to make sure that our property stands apart from anyone else. The improvements/additions that we have planned over the next two off seasons are sure to do that! We feel that nobody reinvests back into their venue like we do and over the next two off seasons we will be reinvesting more than ever before.

That's not all...

After hosting nearly 500 weddings since our opening years ago, we have seen some of the very best in the wedding industry when it comes to photography, DJ and catering. Beginning in 2021 we are going to become an all inclusive destination and partner up with only the best in the industry to make sure your wedding day is everything you ever dreamed it to be. We will be offering packages that include ONLY the best in the wedding industry to make sure that your day is the very best that it can be.

If you haven't noticed yet, we haven't booked a single date yet for 2021. This is on purpose. We are working on the fine details over the next couple of weeks regarding pricing for our packages. Once we get these details finalized we will open up the calendar for those wanting to book their dream wedding with us in 2021 and beyond.

Stay tuned folks, you're not going to want to miss what's coming.

The Chapel

You will be in awe of the 40 foot high ceilings and beautiful 360 degree view through glass in the chapel, allowing you to take advantage of whatever scenery nature decides to provide at the time. 

There's a separate building designated for the bridal party which has a full-length mirror and private bathroom, located a short walk from the chapel.

The chapel is available for wedding ceremonies, memorials, or naming services. We are a non-denominational chapel that can accommodate any ceremony, religious or not.   

The chapel is available on it's own Sunday through Thursday and on Friday and Saturdays with the rental of the Barn.

The chapel seats up to 168 guests in the pews. Additional seating may be brought into fit up to 220 guests.

If you are looking for a unique place to take your vows, give us a call and set up an appointment.  You'll quickly see why we can make your wedding dreams come true.

The Barn

Stacks Image 221
Our banquet hall "Barn" is available for wedding receptions, private parties, corporate events, business functions, conferences, church retreats, family reunions, or any time a unique setting is desired for your event.

The barn can accommodate up to 300 guests and features high, vaulted ceilings and follows the same natural, rustic theme that so many have already fallen in  love with at the chapel.  The rustic charm will captivate you at first look, inviting you to transform the interior to your desires.

The barn has a full bar, public restrooms, and plenty of room for a dance floor.  We are passionate about salvaging materials that would otherwise be trash in a dump and turn these items into beautiful parts of our building.

If you are looking for a memorable location, then look no further than the barn at Willow Creek.

The Destination

Aside from the slight possibility of something maiming you out in the wilds of the country or getting your car a little dusty on a couple miles of gravel roads getting to Willow Creek, Shane & Maritza hope that everyone that spends their day with them has a remarkable time and they hope to see all of you that visit come back again and again for many years to come.
