THE BARN AT COTTONWOOD

Your journey begins on the Farm...
The refreshing and invigorating fragrance of the country lingers on the breeze setting the scene for your beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony.
For more than 100 years and four generations, Siegel’s Cottonwood Farm in Lockport, IL has been the place where memories are created. Not just by the Siegel family, but also by families and individuals across the region.
The Barn
A charming, rustic, country chic wedding venue in Chicago’s suburbs
Brand new in June 2017, The BARN at COTTONWOOD is nearly 5,000-sq foot, open air, traditional timber frame Amish built barn pavilion and event space that will have you, and your guests, feeling immediately at home on the farm. It is the country backdrop you’ve dreamt of for a wedding ceremony, vow renewal or reception that is both charming and unique.
Built by third generation barn builders and craftsman of Amish in a traditional “barn raising”, The BARN is the first of its kind to be built in Will County in the 25 years, and accommodates up to 250 seated guests, a band and dance floor area.
Exposed beams, vaulted ceilings and a six-foot gleaming, crystal chandelier produce a dramatic and romantic atmosphere that will take your breath away! At the end of the evening the spotlight will be on you as you toss your bouquet from the hay loft balcony.

    Most Beautiful Wedding Barn Ever!

    The Barn at Cottonwood is everything we dreamed of having and more! If you’re looking for a rustic/barn themed wedding, stop looking because you CANNOT beat the Barn at Cottonwood. We looked everywhere for a nice wedding barn but could not find one that we liked until we went to this beautiful Amish built barn. The building, tables, patio, lighting, and everything else looked beautiful! Also, the staff was on top of everything from when we planned our reception all the way to our big day. They made sure that all the bases were covered and that we were completely satisfied. On our wedding day, our stressed disappeared because their organization and professionalism was phenomenal. They had staff inside and out helping with parking, security, cake cutting, and so much more. Honestly I could not thank the Siegels and the Barn at Cottonwood enough. Thank you for making our dream wedding a reality!
