Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • With 36 acres of wooded grounds, this unique Southern Illinois venue feels like a private forest paradise, and you’ll discover unique photo opportunities around every corner, including winding paths, a waterfall, a whimsical flower swing, and a Boho-inspired tiny house.  
  • The patio and pond offer a pretty, nature-forward setting for outdoor ceremonies and cocktail hours, and the pond even boasts a sand beach with a fire pit for post-party cozying. Indoor receptions are gorgeous in the modern barn, with its sleek styling and roll-up doors that open to the string-lit patio. 
  • The three-bedroom Bridal House is such a fun and thoughtful option for minimizing stress…stay the night before for your rehearsal dinner and decorating, use the cottage for your prep the next morning, and then retire to the romantic suite at the end of a perfect day.
