Historic Edwards Place 

5.0

Springfield, IL
  • Up to 75 guests
  • Raw space
  • Indoor & outdoor

Edwards Place, built in 1833, was a social center of antebellum Springfield. In its gracious parlors Abraham Lincoln, Stephen Douglas, Ulysses S. Grant, and other Illinois luminaries gathered at elegant parties and balls. You, too, can have your special day in the same rooms where Abraham and Mary Lincoln were guests more than 150 years ago, now meticulously restored to the grandeur of their antebellum days. Edwards Place is available to rent for showers, weddings, and receptions – the perfect choice for a distinctive event in a historically significant setting. You can even include extra services for your event, such as the use of a piano often heard by Abraham Lincoln (and possibly played at his wedding!). Our rental space has three areas of possibility - the historic house museum, the grounds in front of Edwards Place, and the M.G. Nelson Gallery, a part of our parent organization, the Springfield Art Association, and directly attached by a doorway to historic Edwards Place.

The Edwards Place is a beautiful site! The staff were very helpful and flexible allowing us to visit the site multiple times, they were open regarding their seating arrangement, and due to the nature of the site it is fully decorated. The site was beautiful and the wedding was as well! The historic charm of the home added to the romantic feel of the day. I would recommend this site to anyone looking to get married as it is wonderful all around!

Bloomington Center for the Performing Arts 

4.8

Bloomington, IL
  • Up to 400 guests
  • Select services
  • Indoor

The mission of the Bloomington Center for the Performing Arts is to create an environment where all forms of artistic expression are appreciated, encouraged, and seen as a contribution to the quality of life in our community. Built-in 1921 as a home for the American Passion Play, the Bloomington Center for the Performing Arts (BCPA), then known as Bloomington's Scottish Rite Temple, boasted an elegant lobby fronted by a graceful five-arched façade, a ballroom that could seat 1,000 diners and a 1,320-seat theatre that featured the largest stage west of New York. In 2000, The City of Bloomington formed the Bloomington Cultural District to assume ownership of the Consistory and surrounding properties to shepherd it through a restoration.

My husband and I had our wedding here in March of 2022 and it was INCREDIBLE. Brian and the staff are amazing to work with and I would highly recommend this venue if you are wanting a beautiful blank slate wedding venue to work with that allows for you to pick and choose your own outside vendors! We used palace events for rentals to completely transform the space. Brian and the staff were extremely helpful with working out the logistics/ ins and outs of set up and take down with all the moving parts. Cannot recommend this venue enough!!!

The Barrel Room 

5.0

Normal, IL
  • Up to 175 guests
  • Select services
  • Indoor & outdoor
  • Starts at $7,000

An area once reserved solely for the practical application of aging beers, and on occasion for private beer dinners, we opened up this space for guests to host private events such as ceremonies, receptions, showers & rehearsal dinners. Located within DESTIHL Brewery, the Barrel Room is where you’ll find something unique. Our modern-industrial space is perfect for the craft beer experience, a place where you’ll be greeted with our warm hospitality, and an experience unlike any other in Central Illinois.

We really cannot recommend our experience with DESTIHL enough! We planned both an outdoor ceremony on the grounds, and our reception in the Barrel Room, and felt like we had the most wonderful wedding day with friends and family (especially impressive during the COVID-19 period). You simply cannot beat the quality of food and bar offerings that DESTIHL offers to its guest. That, accompanied by the exceptional service of all the staff we worked with on our big day, really made it such an easy day for us. The cherry on top of the service, is that the staff allowed for us to pull vehicles into a garage bay to leave our reception as it was pouring rain outside - they truly went above and beyond. We are so excited to be working with them again next year, for our full reception for our first anniversary!

Engelbrecht Farm 

5.0

Paxton, IL
  • Up to 220 guests
  • Raw space
  • Indoor & outdoor
  • Starts at $5,000

Engelbrecht Farm sits on 8 acres and is located in the heart of farming country. A very unique structural features of the barn is the opening to allow guests to be seated to two levels and both levels can look at the head table for a gallery type feel. The other unique feature is its size. It is the largest actual barn (not modern structure that looks like a barn) within multiple states at 4500 square feet. Adjacent to the barn is the old 4000 square foot feedlot with flower garden and iron pergola. Late in the day makes for a great spot for outdoor games. With the barn comes the recently restored, three bedroom farmhouse originally constructed in the 1890’s. One amazing aspect for the wedding package is it’s a standard three day booking. Families arrive on Friday and check out on Sunday. This gives them time to relax and take the whole experience in. Plus the time is spent making their wedding their own. This is the place for imagination and creativity to really shine.

My husband and I had our wedding reception at Englebrecht Farm last September and had to change many details last minute due to the pandemic. Chris was extremely flexible and understanding of our situation. He helped us safely plan our dream wedding and made sure everything went perfect for us. The barn is original, rustic and absolutely beautiful. You can really make it fit your vision with your decorations, lights, etc. You get access to the barn and farmhouse for the entire weekend of your wedding which takes out a lot of the stress and time constraints that usually occur. I can’t say enough good things about this place and the people who run it! If your looking for a rustic wedding venue in the area that is just down the road from a brand new hotel and several local businesses for your guests to enjoy, I highly recommend Englebrecht Farm!
