Couldn't ask for a better day!
Our wedding day could not have been more of a dream. Planning with Kim and Jan was a great experience. Kim was extremely responsive and supportive through the entire process, I couldn't be more thankful for her! My husband and I both live in Chicago and are from the south suburbs and we opted for this northside venue and we have zero regrets. From the first day we walked in we fell in love with the space. We chose the Devonshire room for our ceremony and reception for our February wedding. The inclusiveness of the package made planning for the day so easy. From the beginning you are 100% aware of all the costs and there were no last minute surprises. The food was amazing, the bar package was extensive, our guests enjoyed the wine on the table during dinner, and the cake was delicious. The time you are given for a wedding ceremony here was perfect, we did not need to coordinate an after party anywhere as our wedding went until 12:30. We had late night food served which people raved about as well! I would confirm the use of the bridal suite prior and the day of. That was the only hiccup of the day. We were told we had access to the bridal suite to get ready in that morning/afternoon. I chose to get hair and makeup done at the hotel and get dressed at the venue. When my cousin arrived to steam my dress prior to my arrival, and after my arrival, the bridal suite was being used by the event that was booked the morning of my wedding day. All in all it worked out but that would be my only suggestion. We were able to take pictures on the golf course (which turned out amazing)! I recommend Chevy Chase to everyone!Sent on 06/09/2020

A Magical Venue
We cannot rave enough about Chevy Chase and all of the people that made our son and daughter-in-laws wedding perfect for them. We first met with Jan, the event sales manager who explained all of the available options and helped us to work within our budget. She was so very helpful and kind. She really took a personal interest and wanted the wedding to be exactly what our kids wanted. We chose the Ballroom Outdoor Patio for the ceremony under the arbor, which was beautiful and the Devonshire Room with its picturesque view for the reception. Jan went out of her way and should be commended for her exemplary job.Sent on 09/11/2019
Meredith was also very helpful. She did the fine tuning of our contract and the time line for the wedding. She was always available to answer my many questions. She made suggestions and she was very patient and responded promptly. She dealt with a lot of the last minute things and was great.
Nate was the coordinator who made sure everything was going as planned. He was there to help with the rehearsal the day before the wedding. The day of the wedding, he ran the show.
He was so professional and conscientious and really invested himself in the wedding and made sure all of our requests were met. He worked very hard and was phenomenal.
This wedding was a success because of these three people and we are so thankful. We got such positive feedback from our guests. I think my daughter-in-law summed it up the best. She said she was so happy we chose Chevy Chase and everything was beyond perfect. She said she's still reliving the memories, and she will for the rest of her life. It was truly magical!

We absolutely love working here. It is beautiful and the staff is always great to work with. We can't say enough good things about this place.
The Chicago wedding DJ pros from Fourth Estate Audio always look forward to each new event at Chevy Chase, because we know everything will be perfect. The grounds offer photo ops galore. Your evening starts with cocktails in the Grand Foyer, horseshoe bar and the Abbey, then dinner and dancing in the spacious Grand Ballroom, with a massive dance floor. And the Chevy Chase staff always -- ALWAYS -- takes wonderful care of its clients, party guests and vendors. Here are some pictures of weddings Fourth Estate Audio has done at Chevy Chase: http://www.discjockey.org/chevy-chase-country-club/.
We absolutely love working with the entire staff at the Chevy Chase Country Club.The service, food and attention to details is as meticulous as mine and would highly recommend them.
