    Midway Saved Our Wedding!

    Midway Village saved our wedding! My husband and I were set to have a 2020 destination wedding until COVID happened. When we made the decision to stay in our hometown it was devastating. The big AHA moment that told us it was meant to be was Lisa and her tireless re-assurance that we would be okay and taken care of. She worked with us to make decisions last minute for icky weather. The location was beautiful! The bridal suite perfectly set up. Our pictures turned out amazing! This was always meant to be our venue & we were thrilled that we could support our local businesses through the changes due to the pandemic. Book ASAP! You can’t go wrong!

    So happy we chose Midway Village!

    Our wedding and ceremony were held at Midway Village on November 9, 2019. Lisa was wonderful to work with and very accommodating- we live near Chicago and they allowed us to rent the space for a small fee the day before the wedding as well, so that we could set up and decorate early. We weren't sure if the weather was going to cooperate, so we had an outdoor spot AND an indoor location available just in case it was cold/rainy (or snowing!) Our reception was held in the 1905 Barn which had plenty of space for our 110 guests. The bar and DJ were set up on the lower level and dinner was upstairs. It was so beautiful, minimal decor is needed because the barn has so much character on its own. I'm so happy we chose Midway Village, I fell in love with the barn the moment we first viewed it and our guests all thought it was such a unique venue!
