Why You'll Love This Place
A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue ReviewRead More Show Less
- With nearly 1,100 acres of lush nature preserve surrounding sleek, stylish event spaces, this secluded venue feels worlds away from city life…yet it’s less than an hour from downtown Chicago.
- Host your outdoor ceremony in a pretty brick courtyard surrounded by bountiful flora of the Native Garden, on the beach of the pristine lake, or in the impressive, open-air Millenia Plaza.
- Other favorite venues include the rustic-chic Audubon Hall, with its accents of cedar, stone, and glass, and the open-sided North Bay Pavilion, which flows beautifully when paired with ceremonies held near the water.
