About

Engelbrecht Farm is a historic, eight-acre wedding venue located in Paxton, Illinois. Situated in the heart of farm country, the property provides an open and airy setting for celebrations. Originally constructed in the late 1940s, the barn is the largest of its kind across several states. At 4,500 square feet, it is an impressive and retro-chic spot to host your wedding.

Facilities and Capacity

Engelbrecht Farm can accommodate 220 guests and is set apart by its unique two-story interior. This allows friends and family to sit on the second floor and look down upon the head table, ensuring that everyone feels part of the festivities. The reception area is complemented by the outdoor ceremony area, which is an old feedlot with a beautiful flower garden. In the evening, this garden is also a great place to play lawn games with your loved ones. Along with the barn, rental of the facility comes with a fully renovated three-bedroom farmhouse. Here, you can spend the night with your wedding party and get ready together in the morning before you marry the love of your life.

Services Offered

Engelbrecht Farm's wedding package comes with three-day rental of the estate. Starting on Friday, you and your guests will have exclusive access to the property. This will allow you to set up and decorate on Friday, host your wedding on Saturday, and gather for a farewell brunch and breakdown your decorations on Sunday. Inclusive in your rental are tables and chairs, large props, and bags of ice for your drinks.
