Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Ceremonies are held in a charming historic chapel. This 1864 Gothic Revival gem features the original stained-glass windows and decorative hand stenciling. The curved, dark wood buttresses and globe lighting help create a mood that’s dramatic and elegant.
  • There are several pretty options for receptions. Naper Settlement is a large “living history” museum with a variety of venues scattered throughout. There’s a hall on the lower level of the chapel, as well shaded picnic grounds, a vintage whitewashed meeting house—even a reconstructed 19th-century tavern!
  • It’s convenient and affordable. Naperville is a great suburb location, easily accessed from all of the Chicagoland area. The facility has free parking, handicap accessibility, air-conditioned buildings, flexible rental hours, and a great list of reasonably priced vendor partners.
