Getting Married at Independence Grove was a DREAM
Amazing Wedding Venue!
Beautiful Venue, Helpful Staff, and Amazing Food!
We loved having the golf cart before the ceremony so that we could take pictures all over the forest preserve. We especially liked taking photos in the garden area. We used the outside patio and Audubon Hall for our ceremony and reception respectively; it was absolutely gorgeous! Having a 6pm ceremony, the sunset hit over the lake right at cocktail hour. It was stunning.
Overall, if you're looking for a fantastic venue with gorgeous forest preserve photos and excellent food, we would definitely recommend Events at Independence Grove!
