We searched for a few months to find the perfect venue. Kemper Lakes Golf Club surpassed our expectations! Not only was it a beautiful course, but it had everything that we wanted. We were married under the 2 willow trees next to the water, with our cocktail hour held outside on the patio/deck overlooking the water, and the reception was held indoors with floor to ceiling windows surrounding the room so that you could still capture the gorgeous view outside. It was everything that we dreamed of and on top of that, it was affordable! Although we had a budget that we were sticking to, we never felt that we were treated any less than someone with a more extravagant wedding. Jessica was the best to work with & very accommodating to our needs. She had several people asking her questions about our day and got back to each and every one of them promptly. In addition, she stepped up to help decorate our cake when the flowers were left on the table and made sure that our day turned out perfect. It was a beautiful day! Thank you Kemper Lakes Golf Club - a day that we will always remember!

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!

We couldn't have asked for a better experience at Kemper Lakes. The outdoor setting and indoor banquet room was convenient, elegant and well organized. Jessica, the wedding coordinator was fantastic. She provided great advice and helped us every step of the way to make our day exactly what we wanted and stress free. We felt at ease with her leadership and flexibility. The venue is centrally located to a lot of hotels and restaurants for guests too!
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!
