Grand River Center Dubuque, IA – Iowa Wedding Photographer

The Grand River Center is a banquet style venue with a gorgeous window room overlooking the Mississippi. It’s the perfect location to have an intimate ceremony and a big celebration with all of your family and friends.

The Grand River Center is attached to a hotel making it a one stop shop for all of your celebrations! With large windows to let in copious amounts of light, it’s perfect for the candid getting ready moments and intimate details.

Our favorite space is the River Room. An all glass room with a veranda overlooking the Mississippi River, it’s the perfect spot for a first look and an intimate celebration with family and friends.


The grounds around the Grand River Center are absolutely gorgeous. From the river walk along the Mississippi to the gardens in the front, there are plenty of options for family photos and candid memories.

Beyond the River Room are their ballrooms. Perfect for gather the whole gang for a delicious dinner and the dance floor party!

Sunset is the perfect time for those coastal vibes right in the middle of Iowa. We walked out onto the river walk for a few quick minutes. I simply let Elissa + Damon do their thing, reminisce on the day, and be present with each other!

That's us on our wedding day. The part we loved the most? The big group hugs, the tears shed, the belly laughs, and getting to share all of it with our friends and family. 

We're Olivia + Christian
