Kemper Lakes is a gorgeous venue overlooking the golf course complete with ponds, weeping willows, and vast greenery. The inside of the ballroom was just as beautiful; the staff did such a good job setting it up exactly as I envisioned, if not better! Our event coordinator Jessica was available day and night, constantly responding to the many questions I emailed her. Their entire staff did a fabulous job making the evening a dream come true! Kemper provides dinner, which includes appetizers, an open bar, salads, entrees, and a wedding cake provided by Lovin Oven Cakery. We even ordered late night snacks including a sweet table, pizza, and sliders. Everyone was raving about the delicious food and incredibly gorgeous venue. So happy we picked Kemper!Sent on 06/19/2018

Beautiful site for a wedding ceremony
We got married on the peninsula at Kemper Lakes. It is a gorgeous spot for a wedding ceremony. Jessica was a great help in helping run the show day-of to ensure we ended up where we needed to be at the right time. Food is delicious (especially the filet)!Sent on 06/02/2019
Beautiful venue. Jessica is wonderful and a joy to work with. We definitely recommend Kemper Lakes for your event.
A fantastic venue to have a beautiful event. Have your wedding surrounded by water and golf course views, cocktails on a private patio, and a fabulous meal in a great banquet room that can be transformed into your special event. Jessica will help you design a great menu and event to fit the look and feel you after.
Kemper Lakes Golf Club is an AMAZING venue... Their staff is second to none in the chicagoland area. We perform at hundreds of locations every year, and Kemper exceeds the standards every time. They truly treat each other like family, which can only promote unmatched cohesiveness. I have personally witnessed a number of their staff members go above and beyond for a guest. If you want elegance, class, and professionalism, call Jessica at Kemper!
