I was raised in a small town in Wisconsin. At a very young age, I learned it's super important to treat others the way you want to be treated. If you do your very best to be honest, treat guests with courtesy & respect, and LISTEN to what they want, you will be successful.
I've owned Parkway for almost 30 years. I consider it an honor to host each & every wedding we have.
More about me? I'm a high school & college level basketball & volleyball referee, and I raise Leader Dogs for the Blind through a wonderful program. Feel free to call or text me directly at 847-373-1237.

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.
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.
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!
