The Pavilion at Orchard Ridge Farms
For brides and grooms that want to get away from the big city hustle and bustle on their wedding day, The Pavilion at Orchard Ridge Farms is a rustic oasis full of small-town charm, where you can tie the knot under stately oak trees or beside a spring-fed pond. There's also an organic apple orchard (perfect for some shabby chic, post-nuptials photos!) and a luxury Bed and Breakfast on the property where out-of-town guests can spend the night.

Events at Independence Grove
Sure, the surrounding trees, sparkling lake, blazing fireplace, and cozy candlelit rooms, all make Independence Grove a gorgeous and elegant wedding venue, but the real standout is their expert wedding coordinators. Brides always rave about how attentive and detailed they are, as they pull off each individual wedding, flawlessly: "Our guests still rave about the night. We cannot say enough good things about our wedding day, and are so grateful to have found such a beautiful, memorable venue." Read real brides' reviews here!

Bolingbrook Golf Club
With stunning, shady oak trees, a lovely rose garden, and a magnificent 10,000-square-foot ballroom, Bolingbrook Golf Club is already a flawless wedding venue choice. But what sets it apart is their extensive (not to mention delicious!) food selection that will shatter anyone's expectations of typical wedding food. One full and satisfied bride said, "We have heard rave reviews about the food from our guests. From the appetizers to the main dishes and the desserts. Everyone loved it! At our final meeting, I had mentioned to our coordinator that all I really wanted was a grilled cheese because I was sick of the wedding diet I was on. And it was amazing because they brought me out a grilled cheese in addition to the main course. It was a small detail, but I was so touched and it was delicious!" What more could a bride ask for?
