Celebrate your wedding at Simpson College

Imagine exchanging vows inside our elegantly designed chapel, with its tall brick walls, bright stained glass windows and high arching beams that frame you at the altar. Smith Chapel provides a beautiful backdrop to one of the most special days of your life.

We welcome students, alumni, faculty, staff and anyone from the public to host their wedding ceremony on campus. Weddings at Simpson are stress-free because we provide help and guidance all along the way. Whether you need a referral list of officiants, to find a musician or need someone to manage the sound, we are here to help make your day perfect.

Prior to the wedding, you and your wedding party can get ready right inside the chapel in our spacious suites and classrooms. Simpson's beautiful campus with its large brick buildings and lushly landscaped lawns is an ideal setting for your cherished photos.

We can accommodate large weddings or small, intimate ceremonies. Our air-conditioned chapel comfortably seats up to 350 guests and the built-in pipe organ can announce your marriage as you walk back up the stone floor aisle, hand in hand to applause and cheers form your friends and family.

Why wait any longer? Contact the Smith Chapel office at 515-961-1610, or email us at weddings@simpson.edu to book your dream wedding.
