We had a wonderful experience working with The Pavilion. The beauty of the venue and the pricing (compared to venues in the greater Chicago area) were what initially attracted us. However, the food through Henrici's (the exclusive in-house catering) and venue staff were incredible assets. We were very lucky to work with Lexi, Jill, and Stacie, all of whom were incredibly patient with the many questions I had throughout the process. Guests repeatedly told us how excellent the food & beautiful the venue was, asking how we found the place a couple hours away from home. We could not recommend The Pavilion more!

Working with Grand River Hall was nothing short of amazing. They were communicative, patient with all my questions, and so laid back. Courtney was our venue coordinator the day of and she was amazing!! Our wedding day was so stress free and I credit a lot of that to her. She made sure everything went smoothly and was in constant communication with us all day. The venue itself has so much natural beauty and our guests still talk about how pretty it was. The bridal suite was literally perfect and SO spacious! Couldn’t recommend Grand River Hall enough!

I have been an event manager in the wedding industry for close to 10 years and I had my full trust in her team and was able to turn my manager brain off for a day, which i so appreciate!

The Wagner House

5.0

Freeport, IL
  • Up to 250 guests
  • All-inclusive
  • Indoor
  • Starts at $1,500

The Wagner House, located in the historic Wagner Print Building, is a three-story industrial warehouse in downtown Freeport, Illinois. The building was built in 1903 and was one of the first buildings that had electricity in Freeport. Established in 1853 and incorporated on March 9, 1912, the Wagner Building was home to the German-born Wagner Family who, like Freeport, has a long and interesting history. The Wagner House also served as an industrial manufacturing spot for textiles and fashion. For four generations, the business did not change hands, and the present Wagner company pledged to continue their record of quality printing and letterpress and are still in business today. In 2013, The Wagner building was sold to Bill Green to redevelop and re-imagine it, creating a wine bar, business incubator, and beautiful event space.

We got married at the Wagner House in September of 2021. We had a short window, only 3 months to plan, but everything went off without a hitch. The best part was their accommodation of live music instead of a dj. The venue has house sound and lights so that saved us a ton of money. We had six musicians throughout the night and a full band. It was a blast!

My husband and I decided on getting married at cooper fox over a year before our wedding. We were thrilled one we found this place! It was everything we were looking for. Though the whole process wasn’t without frustration as the event coordinator we booked with was fired two months before our wedding. We weren’t told until I reached out to that coordinator after not hearing from her and she told me she was fired and thought the venue would have told us by then. The things we had been told by her were not consistent with what we were being told by our new coordinators so it was very confusing. Things I had already discussed I had to discuss again and it added a lot of stress just two months before. But I have to say that the wedding itself was absolutely PERFECT! Everything that was frustrating before was fixed in time and it all came together beautifully. I really appreciated Mandy’s helpfulness and creativity with decor and making things look the way we wanted. And the wait staff/bartenders were the best part! They seemed to genuinely enjoy their job and were so kind and it was fun to see them dance to our music!! The food was delicious, our guests couldn’t stop talking about it. Overall I would definitely book with them. The price/package you just can’t beat and the photos are beautiful outside in the courtyard. I think a lot of our frustrations came from a badly timed inconvenience and they had to try to pick up everything our original coordinator was doing. But genuinely a great place for a small wedding.

We recently had our wedding at Mercantile Hall and had a really great time from beginning to end. The venue was stunning, everyone was so friendly and helpful, and more than one of our friends/family told us how great everything was (venue/staff/etc.). They all KNOCKED IT OUT OF THE PARK! Our venue manager was Jess, and she was so nice, extremely helpful with all of our questions, super detailed, and I had all the confidence that she would help us deliver an amazing day to celebrate our marriage (which is honestly the best thing a bride could ask for - no doubts or worries!).

Ironworks Hotel

5.0

Beloit, WI
  • Up to 200 guests
  • All-inclusive
  • Indoor & outdoor
  • Starts at $8,000

Ironworks Hotel Beloit is a boutique wedding venue located in downtown Beloit, Wisconsin. Sitting on the banks of the Rock River, this property offers an intimate setting where to-be-weds can celebrate their love for one another. In addition to ceremonies and receptions, the hotel also welcomes engagement parties, showers, and rehearsal dinners. Ironworks Hotel Beloit has more than 3,300 square feet of event space available for to-be-weds to use, with a maximum capacity of up to 200 guests. Ceremonies can be held on the waterfront patio or one of the banquet rooms can also be transformed into a beautiful ceremony space. These flexible halls can also be used as a setting for your reception. The banquet halls are decorated in neutral tones and have wooden floors, creating a blank canvas where you can bring your dream day to life.

We loved our beautiful fall wedding at iron works. We lived out of state (but I'm originally from the area) and the team worked with us long distance via email and phone to get the details together for the event. After shopping around I soon realized this was the BEST spot to have a wedding in the stateline area that is connected to a hotel. There's nothing classy in Rockford, it's all run down and gross but Iron works was classy and had the right vibe and price wasn't over the top (It was still expensive but palatable). I will menton we had our actual ceremony at Nicholas Conservatory in Rockford which was amazing but Iron Works was thee place for the reception. The place is industrial but has sexy vibes with the leather and strong iron beams with a nod to the city's past. The event space was beautiful and still looks new and clean and great shape. Love the details in the decor, It was a great canvas to work with. The view from the river was lovely and loved having the outdoor space to hang out in too, especially for those who smoked. The food was wonderful. Was a little worried about the steak, the first initial tasting was decent but thinking about serving steak for such a big crowd we were skeptical it would turn out but everyone's steak was edible and warm, just cooked perfectly, it is a steak house after all. We were glad we upgraded to the filet too. We were super happy with the appetizers and main course and everything was yummy. The servers were on it. Maybe too on it, I would set my drink down and it would disappear. But overall very pleased with our experience. Everyone we worked with was polite and nice from the servers to the managers in charge, we were treated with kindness and respect. I did fly out to come view it in person just to see how they would treat me and they passed the test.. Would have been nice to know about The booking situation with blocking off rooms that another wedding venue reserved rooms so then some of our party had to go to an air Bnb instead of everyone staying there, which was the whole point of doing it there so people didn't have to drive after the reception. Also wish we could have danced later than midnight but it was in our contract to end the night at midnight. Other than that very happy our experience. It was a beautiful wedding, it went by so fast but it was an unforgettable evening. Thanks for everything.

When my husband & I first walked into the Brix over two years, we were immediately taken aback by its beauty. We met with the owners, Rob & Tone and they were so kind and easy to talk to. We loved everything we heard from them about their venue and their approach (“your life, your style). We loved that this venue would allowed us to personalize everything from the food, drinks, music & decor. They gave amazing vendor recommendations (True Cusine, DJuJ, 11th hour bartending, prestige liquors and Mortar Designs). The whole staff was incredible (including Robbie, Erin & Ji Hee). If anything did go wrong that day, we didn’t know about it. We could not be more happy with our decision to get married at The Brix (Industria)! Thank you for your help in making our day so special!

Arrowhead has been fabulous start to finish. We were supposed to hold our original wedding on 7/4/20 on site with the reception to follow. When quarantine didn’t lift, Alexa did a great job with helping us come up with a “plan b” in advance so that we could let our vendors know. When we had to postpone our original plans, Alexa made it so stress free and was incredibly kind with picking it all up and moving to Summer 2021. We still wanted to legally marry and Alexa graciously helped us have a little micro ceremony with just immediate family. She was so thoughtful about helping us make it work and even came up with a backup plan in case the weather was bad. We could not be more appreciative of her work to make our marriage special this year and are looking forward to the best 1st anniversary party next year! Arrowhead’s staff pays such attention to detail and prides itself on customer service. You would not be disappointed in celebrating any occasion with them.

The Harvest Moon Pond is quite simply, the most ideal wedding venue for couples in Wisconsin. The grounds are gorgeous both inside and out, the owners and staff are unparalleled in professionalism and the care they give their couples and guests, and as a photographer I especially love the fact that couples have an option for an indoor OR outdoor ceremony (and both options are beautiful!) This last part is key. There are so many couples struggling to find a venue that can provide a back up indoor ceremony space if the weather turns and they are unable to have their ceremony outdoors. What a stress reliever, to know couples have a built in backup! On a professional level, working with the owners and staff at the Harvest Moon Pond is a joy. It always makes me jump when couples tell me their venue is the Harvest Moon Pond because I know they are going to be some of the happiest couples I work with. They are less stressed, happier and more organized due to all the help the Harvest Moon Pond gives their couples in planning the big day. With all of the amenities (the bridal suite, groom's room, outdoor patio with woodfire oven, the outdoor bar, the house on site for rent, ample onsite EASY parking for guests, the list goes on), along with the gorgeous grounds and buildings, it really is the goldilocks of wedding venues!

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!

Halverson House is more than just a ‘day of’ wedding venue. Instead it is a way of life that caters to families as they come together to celebrate what being a family, new or old, truly means. We believe in “comfortable elegance” which isn’t simply a tagline, but instead a standard throughout all that we offer. Comfort to us means a stress free experience for you and your guests from planning, to the day of your wedding and even afterwards. Situated on a private 120 acre site, Halverson House combines historical charm with the comfort of today’s modern amenities. The formal gardens and picturesque pond complement the still farmed agricultural land, wooded areas while the 1910 Victorian Mansion radiates luxury in exquisite details and full bridal suite. The granary, turned groom's quarters is complete with game tables, and lounge area while our fully restored 1860's post beam construction barn pairs historic detail with your most desired comfortable conveniences and elegant finishes.

Wow, where do I even begin. When my husband and I stumbled across Halverson House and set up a tour, the instant we pulled in the drive we were blown away by the beauty and overall comfort of what this place has to offer. I remember stepping out of the car and instantly getting goosebumps stunned by all the beautiful scenery. Joi, Mike & their amazing family & staff made us feel like part of the family right away. They made sure every single detail of our wedding was perfect, and we cannot thank them enough because our day was nothing less than that. The entire day was completely stress-free! They truly care about you, and their passion for bringing families together is just so amazing. They have created an absolute gorgeous venue and have worked so hard for this. We seriously cannot thank you all enough, for all your hard work and love. If you are looking for a place to get married, THIS IS THE PLACE! You will feel like your dreaming, only to find out that it’s all actually a reality. You will NOT be disappointed.

We got married at Wild Onion Brewery at the end of October in 2022 inside the Great Hall and had about 130 guests. The venue itself was absolutely stunning, and we were really impressed with the space and how it was utilized throughout our evening. The shift from an indoor ceremony into cocktail hour into dinner and then into the reception was seamless, and the food options that we were included with booking the venue was outstanding. Adrianna did a great job coordinating with us, and the rest of the staff were also excellent. We have received tons of compliments from family and friends (including some who heard we were getting married at a brewery and had reservations initially) and everybody had great things to say about how smoothly everything came together. We highly recommend getting married here and look forward to coming back for drinks in the near and foreseeable future!

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!!!

Tuscan Hall Banquet Center and Catering

5.0

Waukesha, WI
  • Up to 200 guests
  • All-inclusive
  • Indoor
  • Starts at $6,000

Tuscan Hall Banquet Center and Catering is an award winning All Inclusive Venue, and Catering company that works with over 20 top venues throughout SE Wisconsin. Our hospitality team is passionate about weddings, and combined have over 30 years experience in the industry. Family owned and operated, our clients also become our Tuscan Family. From the first correspondence, you will find you are treated fairly, professionally, and we truly care about making your wedding day the best one ever, your vision your way!

I used this venue as a caterer for my wedding in Burlington, WI. The food is PHENOMENAL. When we attended the tasting, I was blown away by how good everything was. My husband, who is a VERY picky eater, loved all the food we tried and said that the chicken alfredo was the best he'd ever eaten. The salad we chose (cranberry and goat cheese) was to die for. I would have just eaten that if I could have! Everyone we worked with was fantastic. Natalie was with me at the end of our journey, and she was so helpful and knowledgeable. When questions arose about certain things, she always found the answer for me and got back to me in a timely manner. I never had questions that went unanswered and she constantly kept me in the loop with billing, options, etc. The staff who served our food on the day of our wedding, including the woman who worked with myself and my husband (I can't remember her name), were amazing. They were so helpful, made sure we had food to go home with, and that everything was up to our expectations. The ONLY downfall was they took our food when we got pulled out to take pictures for sunset, but I put that blame more on our coordinator than on the staff working for Tuscan Hall. We were able to get food back at the table and to take back to the hotel with us. If you are looking for a caterer (or a venue as their venue is also very beautiful), I would DEFINITELY recommend you look into them. They are also very reasonably priced in an industry that seems to prey on people getting married to add more money to the bill. Everything was fully explained and for the quality and quantity of food served, it was exceptionally reasonable.

At CityGate Grille, we focus on traditional elegance. This is the place to be for a unique and unforgettable wedding. Our team specializes in utilizing one-on-one consultations to personalize all the details of your dream wedding.

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. You won't regret it for a moment!

The Venue at River's Edge

Waterloo, WI
  • Up to 250 guests

  • Starts at $3,800

The Venue at River's Edge is a recently restored Venue in downtown waterloo. Formerly the building was used as a community building before the city of waterloo had things like a school gym or a theater. At one time the building hosted a long list of events including basketball games, weddings, movies, plays, and even a rifle range in the basement. After being restored we are now again hosting events with a primary focus on weddings and receptions. We hope that you will allow us to host your Event in our beautiful historic building in downtown waterloo.

We came across this venue and from the moment we walked in the doors we were in awe. From the old ticket booth to the beautiful wood bar, the stage and the stunning chandelier you can see from the outside, it is so very special. Everyone including our vendors couldn’t stop talking about how great the venue was. The owners were also great to work with and could tell they loved their venue and it’s rich history. Bonus you get a great bridal room to get ready, a quaint rehearsal area having it the entire weekend was so appreciated!
