Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Located in the charming town of Rockford, this beautifully maintained university campus is equidistant from Milwaukee and Chicago, providing a particularly excellent choice for those welcoming guests from both cities.
  • A stunning archway, a baroque pipe organ, and lovely views of the rolling hills outside make Fisher Memorial Chapel a picture-perfect ceremony location. The chapel also includes an adjacent room for the bridal party to get ready.
  • The spacious and easily customizable Regents Hall will be set up for you by the attentive staff. On-site catering offers three-course gourmet dinners with butler-passed hors d’oeuvres, a champagne toast, and late-night snacks.
