I had a bridal shower brunch at Cantigny Golf, specifically in the Red Oak II room. The staff were amazing—they were professional, personable, and incredibly accommodating. I primarily dealt with Lindsey, who is a sweetheart, and made my experience with Cantigny Golf a very special, pleasant one. The food was delicious—everyone raves about the brunch menu (particularly the salmon and sea bass). The weather was beautiful, which gave us the opportunity to use the adjoining outdoor patio area for stunning photos.Sent on 04/14/2019
The room was large for my group of 65 people, but still felt very intimate. We made use of the venue’s bookshelves by decorating with our own personal photos, and we were able to make the space our own.
Overall, I would absolutely recommend this venue for any occasion, big or small!

Perfect day at the perfect venue
We had our ceremony and reception at Cantigny Park on July 5, 2019 and we would highly recommend this venue to everyone. We had our ceremony at East Lawn, and everything was beautifully perfect. Abby Clark and Kaylee were our ceremony coordinators and they made sure everything was taken care of from our guests, to bridal party, to flowers, to transportation, and all the small details. We had our reception at Le Jardin and it was absolutely gorgeous! Taylor Clark was our venue coordinator and she is the catering manager - she is absolutely amazing and made our entire wedding planning process and wedding day very stress-free. It is a simple but elegant venue and the food is exquisite! We are still getting compliments about our venue and food. We highly recommend Cantigny Park for all couples looking for a stress-free, all inclusive perfect wedding venue!Sent on 07/30/2019

It was love at first sight as soon as we toured Cantigny. Everything from the grounds, to the location was everything and more we envisioned for our wedding day. We chose to have our ceremony at the East Lawn Garden and the reception at the newly added Woodside Pavillion. Both locations were absolutely stunning on our wedding day. For getting ready, we rented out the cottage nearby the ceremony site and it allowed us to have plenty of time for photos in the gardens prior to the start of the ceremony. The staff we worked with was absolutely AMAZING. They were on point with reaching out to us when needed and following up with us immediately for any questions we may have had. Our day was flawless and it's all because of them. They are so organized, professional and FLEXIBLE. Although we were using their facility, they really bent over backwards to make their facilities feel like ours. It was great. Words cannot express how great it was to work with Bryanne as our wedding coordinator and Alyssa as our ceremony coordinator. Both Bryanne and Alyssa were so detailed, caring and supportive, it's really no wonder that I trusted them completely. Honestly, these two are ones to have confidence in and will make sure that your day goes off without a hitch. When it came to the food, it was delicious. Even today we are still hearing compliments on how great the food was. We even still receive compliments on their bar tenders! They were super friendly, AND TALENTED. We had special drinks and they were able to make them perfectly. What a way to add to the experience for our guests. I would highly recommend Cantigny for your wedding. Every where you turn is picturesque, you just can't go wrong. :)Sent on 09/25/2018

Chicago wedding photographers will all tell you the exact same thing when it comes to Cantigny: this venue has everything! Located in Wheaton IL, Cantigny Park is the perfect setting to create a unique and memorable wedding. The lavish gardens, each with a distinctive beauty, have been the setting for some of our favorite weddings. This expansive estate encompasses acres of beautiful gardens, colorful botanicals, and tranquil water features, creating an idyllic background for your most special day. From the Rose Garden to the South Grove, the allure and beauty of the estate is simply magnificent.
Beautiful venue. Several options for outdoor weddings. My favorite is the East Lawn. A long, tiered aisle to walk down. Their sound system is stellar -- all the guests can hear what's being said. (That's not true for all outdoor venues.) Highly recommended.
We absolutely love working at Cantigny Park!! Over and over again it provides amazing views no matter what the season, along with an exceptional staff at each wedding we do. I couldn't recommend it enough!!
