Welcome to Little Lights on the Lane

at cedars edge golf course | West Branch, IA

Say your forever “I do’s” and dance the night away with your friends and family, on that dreamy starry night, in a great location, with the ambiance and experience that makes you feel like you are home. 

Choose to get married at a venue that you want spend hours in because you find yourself pinning the same designs and decor in your “someday” home, with simple decor and a bright airy vibe. We take the hard work out of the design for you. That way you can be present on your day and slow the clock as you take the extra time that you didn't think you would have, to enjoy sitting in the bridal suite, making memories with your bridesmaids.

Send the guys out for a morning on the course. They are having a blast and they won’t be late because they are right outside, enjoying their day in their own way, in their own space. The Groom golfs free!

Enjoy the flexibility and experience that we offer. With a unique in-house catering option, bar service, preferred vendor list and detailed wedding planner that has everything you need to plan your wedding, you can rest assured that the 20+ years we have in the biz allows us to confidently connect you to the best possible team that is both in your budget and on your new favorite Instagram scroll.

Maple Magic

Who isn’t swooning over those Pinterest-worthy ceremonies under a big tree?

We have one of those! Right outside our 30 foot glass doors sits a huge maple tree. Say your “I-do’s” under its enchanting branches, indoors or out, and imagine all the stories it would tell if it could talk.

Indoor-Outdoor Dream

Our 30 x 12 foot sliding glass door is the focal point for your Main Hall ceremony. Above it sits an additional bay of windows that come together to make a 32 x 20 foot wall of glass. This allows light to pour in and brings the outdoors in. It’s your photographer’s dream. Slide them open to connect to the view and courtyard beyond.

Outdoor photo opportunities are endless. Use the golf course and tree groves on our property, or take a two minute drive to quaint West Branch and use its historic buildings, brick walls and 70+ acre Herbert Hoover National Historic site. Of course, our tasteful decor and detailed design are perfect options as well.

Courtyard + Terrace

You wedding should be as unique as you are. We designed Little Lights to have many different options for planning your day. Our Main Hall, covered porch, outdoor courtyard & terrace under the tree can all be used for your ceremony, appetizer hour, reception, & relaxation. The choice is yours.

Our landscaped steps guide your guests down to the connected courtyard that overlooks the beautiful Cedars Edge Golf Course and Iowa countryside. Use the courtyard for your ceremony, appetizer hour and games, or your dance floor.

Our bar has indoor-outdoor accessibility so that you can get a cold drink, wherever you are. The restrooms are conveniently accessible from the courtyard as well as the Main Hall. The string lights and beautiful Iowa landscape have already set the mood and we have designed the flow with you in mind.

Your wedding day will be beautiful rain or shine.

Our picturesque, 30 foot wide, extended wrap-around porch flows from the Main Hall, and gives you a fantastic rain back-up plan in case you need it.

Grab a seat and make yourself at home.


Get ready

Our 500 square foot bridal suite is the perfect place to get ready, relax, and celebrate with your tribe. Vaulted ceilings, en suite hair & makeup studio, and your own private balcony await you. Go ahead. Pop some champagne!



You and your guests will love our in-house caterer, Harvest & Dock. Spoil your senses with their fresh culinary flavors. Choose a package from our in-house catering service with serving & dinnerware included. If that’s not your style, don’t sweat it. You can cater with whomever you’d like!

We added a lane for food trucks & catering to make it simple for your vendors to arrive, set up & serve you. If you love street style food and want a food truck at your reception, we made it easy for you to do so.
