About Parkway Banquets

ASK ABOUT OUR AFFORDABLE ALL INCLUSIVE INTIMATE WEDDING PACKAGE!

Parkway Banquets is an incredible waterside venue located in Ingleside, Illinois, about halfway between Chicago and Milwaukee in Lake County, IL. With over 500 5-star reviews on social media, it boasts a waterfront view from amazing picture windows! Located right next to the forest preserve, the outdoor surroundings complement the romantic day. Couples can celebrate both their ceremony and reception here, making it a versatile and accommodating place for any milestone moment.

Facilities and Capacity

Situated along the edge of beautiful Long Lake, this elegant property provides elegance secluded and bathed in nature for couples and their guests to enjoy. For the ceremony, the couple and their friends and family will gather in the only outdoor, covered tented area in the area - rain or shine! Here, white chairs are arranged for everyone to sit and watch as the couple says ‘I do’ and exchanges rings.

A light breeze drifts through on warm summer afternoons, and on a chilly day, the area can be heated and enclosed from wind or rain. Parkway Banquets will decorate the ceremony to match the couple's chosen decor. After the iconic moment has been sealed, the happy couple and their guests will make their way directly inside to the incredble reception area overlooking the lakefront.

With large windows letting in ample light and affording views of the waterway, the reception area exudes a relaxing ambiance. As the evening moves on and the festivities continue, the lit-up dance floor gets the party rockin'! Most common comment by guests" "This is the BEST wedding I have ever been to!!!"

Services Offered - No Rental/Site Fee!

The way Parkway Banquets marries splendid design with nature makes it a tremendous place to host a wedding ceremony and reception! To boost the venue’s appeal, a super cool on-site photo booth is also available!

A number of other services help add to Parkway's already glittering appeal, such as an event planner, a lovely get-ready room, availability for event rentals including wedding showers, and complimentary WiFi. Parkway Banquets is happy to recommend other wedding vendors such as DJs, photographers, bakeries, florists, officiants, transporttion, local hotels, travel agents, and more to help each couples vision come to life!

Cuisine

Offering a very popular array of wedding packages, Parkway Banquets can accommodate any type of wedding! The hot and cold hors d’oeuvres, incredible entrees, sweet table desserts, and late-night snacks are one of the reasons Parkway Banquets has over 500 5-star reviews!

  • Hitched by MV - Wedding Officiant - Rev. Michael Wedding Officiants

    As a wedding officiant I always look forward to ceremonies at Parkway by the Lake. It's a great ceremony site and banquet hall. This budget friendly location has everything you'll need for your big day; wedding chapel set up, bridal suite, scenic lakeside locale, bar service, and much more.

  • Extreme Sounds Entertainment & Lighting Wedding DJs

    We absolutely love working with the entire staff at Parkway Banquets And Catering. The service, food and attention to details is as meticulous as mine and would highly recommend them.

  • Eminjayin Productions Wedding Photographers

    We have worked with Jerry on a number of wedding receptions as have served the same bridal couples. Jerry's attention to detail to ensure a smooth wedding for couples is phenomenal! He has all bases covered! He is easy to work with, accomodating and can relieve strress for brides who really have no idea of how the day should be run. His banquet facility is always clean and inviting, the buffet style food delicious and real (ie. ham is off the bone, not frozen thin strips, prime rib cut right off the bone). The newly created bride room is ablsolutely adorable and a serene sanctuary for a bride who just needs a few minutes alone. I always know that if we are heading to Parway Banquets, the wedding/reception will be a smooth one!
