After touring probably 10 wedding venues, it was easy for us to pick Arrowhead Golf Club for our wedding day. They are truly all-inclusive and are accommodating to any budget. They offer various meal packages and you can pick and choose almost anything you want so you get the exact ceremony and reception you want! One of the biggest selling points for us was getting to work with Lauren, a member of the Events staff at Arrowhead. She responded quickly to every single email we ever sent her throughout our year of planning. She helped make our wedding day flow so smoothly from beginning to end. We also wound up booking our rehearsal dinner at Arrowhead. Every member of our event staff was nice and great! All of our guests thought the space was beautiful and could only say good things about Arrowhead. I'm so happy we chose Arrowhead for our big day and it will always hold a special place in our hearts!

Oswego, IL

Our wedding venue is a family business! We also have Kentucky bred thoroughbreds that have been on our farm for years! Our biggest goal, is making your wedding day as special as can be! We offer multiple ceremony sites on our farm and have a big tent for receptions!

The professionalism was like non other! They made sure my wedding was absolutely perfect! I got married on the hottest day of the year with a heat index of 119 F and the tent kept all of my guests cool! Emma did an outstanding job and her communication was stellar! Pete offered rides for guests on his golf cart throughout the wedding to make sure people did not have to walk far! I knew from the moment I took a tour here that I just had to have my wedding here! They offer many decorations that you can add to with your own hint of color to make your night beautiful! I needed to change my date unexpectedly and they were able to accommodate without any issues! I heard they were planning on making more improvements on years to come with an addition of a new barn and that is just so exciting for all the future brides! How can you make improvements on something that was already so perfect! All brides should save their time and visit this venue first because I know you will just fall in love with it! I think I am one of the very few brides that can say nothing went wrong on my special day and it was all due to the help of Emma, Pete, and the Northfork staff! P.s. I was looking over from previous reviews and brides have full capability of choosing their own DJ and food vendor, but Northfork offers a nice list of PREFERRED vendors that work well to help with the search! I chose all my vendors (Uncle Bubs and DJUj) from their list and my night could not have been more perfect!

Awarded Best of Zola
I would like to highly recommend the Abbington Distinctive Banquets. We held both our ceremony and reception at this venue and was very pleased! We selected this venue based on its elegance (I absolutely loved the north ball room which features oversized windows allowing beautiful natural lighting, oversized chandeliers, and neutral color tones blending that blended well with our color palette. We also loved the fact that they have an option to host the ceremony in a separate room from the reception which was an absolute must for me, I am very particular and a little hard to deal with at times due to my over attention to detail and wanting every single detail preplanned and perfectly executed. Tara my venue coordinator was very accommodating to my "type A" personality :) She was very patient with me no matter how many times I contacted her, or regardless of how many times I stopped by the venue to run through things or do mock set ups, and was always just a email/ phone call away throughout the entire planning process. Leading up to the wedding one thing that I had not thought about prior to booking this venue is that we wanted a traditional soul food cuisine and the venue does not offer outside catering. Tara went above and beyond to meet my needs by helping us put together a custom menu using items from their various banquet menus. She also allowed us to request extra seasonings and provide details on how to turn their traditional menu Mac and cheese to "southern style baked Mac and cheese to give the food the southern flare we desired. The chef did an amazing job of executing it and the food was delicious and an absolute hit! My family (including the great aunties and grandparents) whom are tuff food critics were very pleased! We had absolutely NO complaints with anything related to the venue on our big day and would like to thank the staff at the Abbington Distinctive Banquets for being top tier! Everything was perfect!!!

The Drake Oak Brook Hotel, Autograph Collection

Oak Brook, IL
  • Up to 300 guests

The Drake Oak Brook Hotel is a classic hotel wedding venue located in Oak Brook, Illinois. This historic venue was built in 1962 as a suburban sister property to the famous Drake Hotel on Michigan Avenue. After extensive renovations, the property re-opened in April 2015. The Drake Oak Brook represents elegance and traditional services for your dream wedding day.

Every part of our experience with The Drake was first class. From the first day we stepped into the hotel for our initial tour, we were blown away at the friendliness, attentiveness, and professionalism of the entire wedding staff. Throughout the entire planning process, they were clear and communicative, and always made us feel as though we had everything we needed and more. When COVID hit and we had to adjust our day, they clearly outlined our options and worked with us to make sure our big day would still be everything we wanted it to be (or as close as possible). On our wedding day, we were blown away with how smooth everything went. The professionalism of the staff and safety measures put in place made all of our guests feel welcome and safe. Even with a last minute shift from our ceremony moving from outside to inside due to weather, the entire process was seamless. To this day, our guests continue to rave about how beautiful the venue was, how AMAZING the food was, and how great of a time they had. Finally, our wedding coordinator Michael deserves a special shoutout for how unbelievably professional, personable, and helpful he was. If you work with him, you'll be in great hands.

Love, laughter, & heartfelt moments await at this beautiful, suburban getaway. Nestled in a peaceful location.

We had Ravi do the catering for my daughter's wedding, which was at The Old Post Office in 2022. The tasting we had was fantastic, as a result we ended up offering more varieties of appetizers than originally planned, they were all amazing! The dinner options we chose were over the top! In addition my daughter wanted a dessert that wasn't on Ravi's menu, but he made it happen for her. Fast forward to 2024, my daughter is expecting and I was beginning to plan a baby shower for her. I called Ravi and found out he had become the caterer of choice for The Oak Brook Manor. Ravi bent over backwards to give my daughter the perfect baby shower. The facility is beautiful, and of course the food outstanding! We had 40 people, some of the choices of food we had were the siracha chicken, which everyone loved & my favorite!!! Swedish meatballs, not one was left over. Pulled pork, amazing. Mac & cheese, loved it! Vegetarian pasta salad, a big hit. Our guests went back for 2nds & 3rds and everyone loved it. I would, without a doubt, recommend Ravi. His food choices and quality go above and beyond. The venue itself is perfect. I would use Ravi in a heartbeat and know that he would be providing the best ingredients, service, location, and on-hand help/experience!!!

CityGate Grille is THE hidden gem in Naperville! I have DJ'd several times at CityGate Grille and this is one of the few venues in the Chicagoland area that I will refer to my clients. First of all, the staff that you work with is literally second-to-none. Barb is extremely nice, professional, always has a smile on her face and is willing to go above and beyond to make sure that your wedding is absolutely perfect! The staff on the day of your wedding are timely, professional, courteous, and will stop at nothing to give you one of the best experiences of your life! Even at a vendor table, they treat you with respect and ask if there is anything we need - and, again, that's just at a VENDOR TABLE! Secondly, the space is beautiful! CityGate's lawn and patio ceremony areas are perfect! Confined to just your family and friends, there will be no worries of having random people walking by during your ceremony - which I personally love as your ceremony needs to be intimate between you, your spouse, and your guests. The actual reception space is gorgeous! Floor-to-ceiling windows looking out to the patio coupled with aesthetically-pleasing ceiling lights and bar with all of the fixin's for that perfect cocktail will keep you and your guests more than satisfied throughout your reception. Finally, the service is FIVE STARS ACROSS THE BOARD! This should be the single most important aspect of selecting your wedding venue. As I stated above, from your first meeting down to the minuscule details, Barb and her team have it covered 100%. Everyone will treat you with kindness, respect, and will be genuinely excited about your celebration! Do yourself a favor and look no further than CityGate Grille for your wedding reception.

Please keep in mind, White Stone Events is Family Owned and Operated.

I literally could write for an hour or two and still not be able to tell you everything that was so wonderful about working with WSE. They were well organized, available, kind, and definitely make you feel like family. The venue itself is absolutely stunning, and photographs very well. We took advantage of the recent upgrades to Alpha and it was a fantastic space; big enough to comfortably accommodate our 150-ish guests, décor, dance floor, buffets, memory table, etc, but still felt intimate. They coordinated well with our outside vendors and I appreciated that we weren’t limited in our vendor selection. They made a lot of things just work without stressing us out at all. The setup for my caterers/servers was excellent and accommodating. The Romeo suite was so much fun for the groomsfolk, but the Juliet suite was an AMAZING amenity. The salon chairs and backlit mirrors were so convenient for my HMUA. The suite was comfortable and roomy despite the zillion people I had coming in and out. The full kitchen (particularly the full size fridge/freezer) was super nice to have. We had our ceremony on the west lawn, which was absolutely beautiful. They also were very enthusiastic and accommodating about letting us get some photos with our dogs and incorporating them into the ceremony. One of the most notable things, though, was how well they handled adapting to my and my guests’ mobility needs. Several of my older family members use walkers and were worried about the walking or the grass and they all felt very accommodated and cared for and were able to enjoy the day. I myself have a disability that affects my ability to walk and stand for very long; this was no problem for them. They shortened the aisle for my ceremony, knew exactly how to create a beautiful ceremony where both we and our wedding party were seated, and they put a lot of mileage on those golf carts getting me and my family where we needed to be safely and comfortably. I cannot recommend White Stone strongly enough and I would have every event there if I could.

We had bowling during cocktail hour which our guests loved. The food was incredible and they did a great job managing our cake, decor, and everything we dropped off. The whole staff was so easy to work with and all of the meetings went so smooth.

We cannot say enough wonderful things about The Walden. Their concept is completely unique and is leading the way in the industry on how wedding planning is done. Maria, along with the other owners are all experts in the wedding planning. Having the people who are planning your wedding own the venue creates an experience like no other. They are the whole package deal. They help you every step of the way and plan your dream wedding for you in their space. They have amazing vendors (which you don't have to use, but can!) because they are experts at Chicago weddings. They invest in your vision and your needs and then connect you with the best vendors available to help make that happen. They use BaseCamp, an event planning website and app to keep everyone on track and on the same page. It is a lifesaver. I can just go to the app on my phone and message any of the planners, chef, event coordinators. The site has dates when you need to achieve steps in planning so it really keeps you on track and organized. There are also lots of forms, quizzes and lists on the site that help you communicate what you are needing for your big day. Because of COVID-19 we had to move our wedding 6 months later then planned. They made the difficult decision to switch seamless but re-negotiating all of our of contracts and talking to all of our vendors for us - it was painless. They are professional but very personable as well. We cannot say enough good things about this experience. We are forever grateful for all they have done for us!

This place is so relaxing and chic. I came here for one of their open house events. I love how it can be rented out to stay in, have a micro-wedding or small event in or do both. It’s also in a great location near small boutiques, artisan shops and cool restaurants that you can walk around and check out. I plan to stay here this summer and host my friends bachelorette pajama party.

With exceptional cuisine and a picturesque setting, Porter Kitchen & Deck provides a chic and memorable backdrop for your special day.

Our family held a rehearsal dinner for 60 people at Porter Kitchen on a beautiful night last fall and had the most wonderful experience. We worked with Laura, who shepherded us through the entire process from beginning to end. She welcomed every idea and desire we had with open arms, allowed us to bring in outside vendors for tables and chairs, linens, glassware and flowers and never once said “no” to any request we had. She introduced us to the chef at our tasting and he was fantastic with a willingness to adjust their entrée presentation and ingredients as long as we used ingredients that were already on their menu. They made adjustments for guests with gluten allergies and chef did all of this with a willingness to make his guests happy, without ego. The meal he and the staff served was spectacular and the table service matched the food. Throughout the evening, the ratio of staff to guests was abundant. Passed appetizers flowed continuously and there was never any wait for drinks. They encouraged us to stream our own Spotify playlists through their sound system to create the atmosphere we were seeking and helped us play videos on their multiple TV’s as well. By the end of the evening, our guests were raving about the event and how warmly they were treated the entire evening by the staff. Regardless of the type of event you are holding, this is a location on the river that is not to be missed and a more importantly, an exceptionally professional and accommodating staff that will help your vison come to life. Porter Kitchen easily exceeded all expectations and has earned our highest recommendation!

their work. Our original wedding day was canceled due to Covid-19, but we were very lucky to find Studio Soo. Soohyun was very responsive and had many great ideas for our big day. We were able to use the beautiful studio for our ceremony and Studio Soo live streamed the entire ceremony for our guests. Everything came together nicely with Studio Soo's team- the lighting, the music, the setup. We purchased a wedding videography package as well. Soohyun and Kay captured amazing shots and created a beautiful video that displayed our story perfectly. The Studio Soo team is incredibly talented!

My husband and I booked The Arbory as our wedding venue. After seeing it last year, when it wasn't completed yet, and meeting with Allison, we felt confident that the venue was exactly what we were looking for! We worked with Allison ahead of the big day and she was easy to communicate with and even invited us back, after the venue was completed, so we could see it in person again. We also worked with Shay closer to the date and she was our venue manager on the day-of the wedding. I am so thrilled and happy we decided to book The Arbory, it is a beautiful venue, full of character, special & unique touches, and yet can still be fully customized to reflect each couple's personality. You can truly tell the team behind the venue understand events because they have crafted the venue so well. We didn't even have to do much with decor because they have so many awesome murals and living walls! The venue also provided a professional and wonderful security guard for our wedding, and we had plenty of street parking available too. We cannot recommend Allison, Shay and The Arbory enough! We have received so many compliments on how beautiful and perfect our venue was, and honestly, it is!

My husband and I were fortunate enough to have our wedding reception at The Carter in June. From the moment we first toured The Carter up until a few days after our wedding, Chris (owner/operator) and the rest of The Carter staff went above and beyond for us. Chris was super responsive, so easy to work with, and created such an amazing vision for our day. Chris knows what is important to wedding guests and makes sure to prioritize those things - short lines for the bar, guests having a drink in their hand, food served quickly, etc. Everything about the space is perfect, the bridal suite is huge and has so much natural light. I got ready in the morning in the bridal suite and had 10 bridesmaids, my mom, 2 hair stylists, and 2 makeup artists in the space and there was plenty of room for all of us. Our hair stylists, makeup artists, and my bridesmaids raved about the bridal suite - definitely a huge perk of The Carter! The patio space is perfect for cocktail hour, I loved having that outdoor feature and so did our guests. The entrance/welcome space is stunning and such a great way to welcome guests into the space. The main reception area is so beautiful and has so much character with the brick walls and chandeliers that you need minimal decorations/florals which was a huge draw for me. The dance floor is big and fit our band along with all our guests. We were very fortunate to have a perfect 70 degree day so the garage doors were open throughout the entire cocktail hour and reception which was amazing. Literally, every single guest of ours raved about the space. I could go on and on about how amazing it is!! There is also parking easily available which is very rare for wedding venues in the city. We were also surprised the day of our wedding when they let us up onto the roof to get some fun golden hour shots. We had no idea they had roof space that was accessible for that type of pictures! I can't say enough about the staff at The Carter. I already mentioned how great Chris is. Stefan was a newer addition to The Carter staff and we were fortunate to work with him in the last week leading up to our wedding. He was there to let us drop off stuff a few days prior to the wedding and he had everything organized for us. The day of the wedding, Stefan was making sure our drinks for the bridal suite were on ice, he made sure trash was cleaned up, and would continually check on us to see if we needed anything. He told me, "you're not lifting a finger today" and me and my bridesmaids were so appreciative of everything he did for us. At the cocktail hour and reception, the servers and bartenders were great. Food came out quickly and there were no issues. Stefan was even sweet enough to let us leave some stuff after the reception and my friend came by to get the rest of it on Monday. Moral of the story is The Carter is hands down the best and really wants to make your wedding day perfect for you. Our day was literally perfection and we have The Carter to thank for that!
