    Four Rivers Environmental Education Center

    In January of 2019 we were able to attend an open house with the venue, meet with vendors, look over different decoration styles, and book our date. It was so convenient and the location is beautiful. The whole area is a forest preserve with beautiful scenery for the perfect wedding photos and for the best day. What I really love about this venue is that you get to rent the place for 12 hours and it is for only your wedding making your special day even more special and intimate to enjoy with all your loved ones. Also the venue is all natural wood beams and elegant with very few decorations needed to make it gorgeous for your day. I cannot wait to celebrate our day here.

    Great venue

    We had no idea this facility existed until our wedding search. The site is beautiful, and can easily suit many different needs. We used the shelter for our ceremony, and moved into the hall for our reception. We couldn't have asked for a better venue!
    The price is very affordable, and the staff (especially Mary) were great to work with. I would highly recommend Four Rivers! The only drawback for us was that they have a list of preferred caterers. Overall, we still absolutely loved our venue.

    Could not have asked for a better venue

    If you are looking for a fantastic venue for an outdoor wedding with a onsite reception, then this is the place! Between the beautiful venue, the affordability and the great staff at Four Rivers, we could not have asked for a more perfect wedding. Mary and her team were extremely helpful and flexible with all of our requests and were extremely accommodating. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking in the Chicago area.
