Ancestral Blessings is our home and land. We chose the name to honor Spirits of this land and the many family and friends who have shared their hard work, energy and hearts to this wonderful place. In 1993 James purchased a corn field that he wanted to build his house and barn on. Then, in September of that year, before he had even broke ground on the house or barn, he planted the first tree. Over the years we've added hills, burms, lush lawn areas, 2 large ponds, thousands of trees, and we're still planting. Ancestral Blessings Tree Farm has matured into a beautiful habitat, a Sanctuary with abundant native flora, and a diverse wildlife community.
Ancestral Blessings Tree Farm & Sanctuary is a perfect place for your Wedding, Reception or Spiritual gathering and is conveniently adjasoned to over 150 acres of the Kane County Forest Preserve in Blackberry Township, Elburn, IL. We offer the perfect spot for everything from the ceremony and photos through the reception.

Absolutely the BEST people ever! They treated us like family from day one. Nothing was out of the question and they worked really hard to ensure our special day was perfect. If you want an offbeat wedding this is the place to come! It's like a blank canvas waiting for your touch! The landscape is beautiful and the whole place has the feeling of getting married in a HOME and not a "venue". There is plenty of room, and hundreds of ways you could set up. These folks will truly got the extra mile for you! If you want the stock standard pre-fab-princess wedding this is not the place for you, this place is real! As long as you respect the property, anything goes!
The priestess was amazing and allowed us to create our own ceremony. Some officiants don't respect your individuality, and push for the way THEY like to do things. Not the case here. Kimberly is an "class A" officiant, and a truly amazing person. She dedicated herself to the task, and treated the ceremony as the most important part of her day. Anyone can read lines from a book, but it takes a dedicated individual to really SPEAK to you and your families. Her actions will never be forgotten for the rest of our lives.
If I had it to do over again I would choose this vendor a million times over. OUTSTANDING!! We didn't just hire some "vendor" in their eyes. We entrusted partners to treat us like they would treat their own family. I really can't say enough about how great these folks are!
