    Amazing Experience

    The amount of flexibility, responsiveness, and kind gestures we received while working with Kuiper's and their team cannot be understated. We had our original wedding date to be in May 2020 until the pandemic hit in full force. We were able to work with Kuiper's to reschedule, and then reschedule again since the pandemic didn't die down by our second date. When we finally had the wedding it was everything we dreamed it would be. The venue had that rustic look we were looking for and the set-up exceeded our expectations. We had our wedding indoors due to weather but it may have been better that way! The ceremony décor looked amazing and during the cocktail hour they rearranged it into the dinner and dance area. We had around 150 guests and at no point did the place seem packed nor empty.

    Working with the event planner there, Nick, was such an pleasant experience. We wanted everything to be perfect for our special day and he went above and beyond what was expected of him. This included changes here and there to what they normally have for décor and beverage selection. Without being asked they even shuttled people from their cars to the venue area to keep our friends/family out of the snow!

    To us Kuiper's was the perfect choice.

    The starting of forever memories

    My husband and I got married at Kuipers on 7/17/2021, so that being said I took a long time to write this review because I really wanted to sit and reflect to be able to write something so perfect.
    My husband and I are very low key people or least we like to think we are. We booked with Kuipers on 03/2019 and then covid happened. Nick Meyers kept us sane. Half of this post alone could be about how wonderful he is. When we found out that Illinois was implementing phases, we knew that the wedding we wanted wouldn't happen the way that we wanted it to. Nick immediately answer any questions and helped us pick a new date, one year from our first date. We were kept in the loop and got to enjoy the benefit that came from covid such as an outside bar.
    One of reasons we picked this venue is it fits the mold of a barn wedding, yet has the safety and security of a wedding that would have been held in a reception hall i.e., air conditioning in the middle of a midwest summer. The Main reason we picked Kuipers is because you can continue to make memories at your venue well after your wedding. When we choose to have kids we can take them back year after year to the place we got married and started our lives as husband and wife. How often do you get to go back to your venue and do this?
    When it comes down to the details it is simple and timeless and honestly doesn't even need much decorations, because the venue speaks for itself. It is also all inclusive, which means that we didn't have to figure out tables, chairs, linens, food (and wedding cake), center pieces, etc. They provided signs that they already had as well and have a million and one places for photos to be taken.
    The staff was amazing. Everyone was incredibly friendly (we even got some to dance with us by the end of the night)! We were able to make some last minute chances (2 weeks before the wedding).
    Honestly I could go on and on about how perfect this venue was to us. It made our dreams come true and is a venue that will have your guest talking about for awhile!
