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.
  • The Fisher Memorial Chapel's warm, mid-century architecture is accented by an iconic copper roof, wood-paneled ceilings, and a stunning Baroque pipe organ. You'll love snapping romantic photos amid the lush gardens, and there's an adjacent room for the wedding party to get ready.
  • The light-flooded Regents Hall boasts sprawling views of the picturesque campus through expansive floor-to-ceiling windows. On-site catering offers three-course gourmet dinners with butler-passed hors d’oeuvres, a champagne toast, and late-night snacks.
