About Kuipers Family Farm

    Unique and perfect venue with amazing service

    Kuipers was the most amazing wedding venue. I searched the Chicagoland area for a venue that would not only hold 250 people or more but be on a tighter budget. I was amazing with the venue at Kuipers. We were disappointed that they only had Friday dates available for us but it was so worth it. The venue from day 1 was so focused on what we wanted for our day and making the process as easy as possible. They were always understanding and flexible for EVERYTHING!!!! The food here was amazing as well. For someone who has attended an obscene amount of weddings with a very large family on both my side and my husbands we were sick of the typical reception. This venue was so much fun for everyone. There are so many different options to choose from and places for people to be. Each area is so unique. The day of planner Kathy, was the most amazing person to work with. I have never met a person who tried so incredibly hard to make sure every moment ran smoothly and went well. She thought of everything and took care of every single little detail I missed. The staff was truly amazing. We received so many compliments on the venue after our wedding on how amazing it looked and what a cool place it was. I would not have changed a thing!

    I cannot say enough great things about this place. The staff- Laura, Kathy & Ruthie were fantastic. They handled all of our concerns promptly. Laura responded to each and every E-mail quickly- made planning a breeze. The wedding was on 7/20/18 and it rained so we had to move the ceremony inside, they were great, helping us set up and giving us decorating ideas. The reception was BEAUTIFUL!!! The service was great, never an empty water glass, the food was delicious, the Donut Bar is a must have...people are still talking about it!! Restrooms were clean and the Bridal Suite is so close to the Hall making it super convenient. This was truly the most beautiful venue I have ever seen!
