Highly Reccommend

Kelsey and all staff was great. They were there for us every step of the way. We encountered some issues with the catering group we selected from their approved list and they made every effort to offset those issues. Honestly if it weren't for Kelsey and the rest of the amazing staff then our event wouldn't have turned out as great as it did. Cannot recommend them enough!

Dream Wedding Acheived

Absolute hidden gem of a wedding venue. Do not hesitate to book this place for your special day. Our photos were so dreamy thanks to the Community House’s stunning brick walls and garden backdrop. Kelsey, the venue manager, was phenomenal and so helpful. You cannot beat this place and especially the price. Loved having a bridal suite to get ready in on-site. Parking was so convenient for our guests. One thing to keep in mind is that it is a fully functional community center, so during your wedding setup time there will likely be other events going on. Absolutely no regrets choosing this venue at all. Highly recommend!

Absolute dream

I remember searching, searching, and searching for an outdoor garden venue in Chicago for our wedding and when I found Community House online, I just knew it would be perfect. I had to see the venue without my fiancé but I called him immediately afterward and told him that I had a feeling it would be exactly what we wanted. Kelsey made planning easy and stress free. The gardens are gorgeous and provide the perfect backdrop for a late spring/early summer wedding. Even looking at photos now I feel like I completely lucked out on finding my dream venue. With the scenary, the price, and the staff, you truly can't find better.
