Creating Centuries of Memories...
Our venue is built upon memories that span more than one hundred years. As you enter our century-old barn, the craftsmanship weaves a rich story.

Offering a unique space for any event, with a great location in the countryside just north of Ames.

"I 100000% recommend the Rustic Rose as a wedding venue! The staff are amazing and so sweet! They are all so helpful when things are confusing or if you need help with anything! They are one of the most reasonably priced venues we found when we were searching for a wedding venue. Susan and her amazing team were so kind and genuinely cared about our day as perfect as it can be! They work with you on payments and do not require you to cater dinner! i wish I could replay this day forever! They also let you use their items at a much cheaper cost than any other place we had looked at! If you are considering this venue, just do it! Best decision EVER!"
"One word for this place AMAZING! Wouldn’t have chosen anywhere else! Susan and her rustic rose team are great and make everything run so smoothly on your special day. I would recommend the rustic rose to anyone and everyone! What a great place they have there! To make sure your day runs so perfectly Patty is amazing and totally worth your money to make sure every little detail of your day is perfect!"
