Summerset Winery

Summerset was an outstanding choice for our wedding venue. They were very easy and flexible to work with throughout the process. Haley the Event Coordinator did an outstanding job of planning and organizing our wedding. She was very communicative with us and our vendors. This allowed us to relax and enjoy our special day.

Dream Wedding!!

We honestly couldn’t recommend Summerset Winery more!!! It was everything we dreamed of and our wedding day was so beautiful! The coordinators were friendly, flexible, and so enjoyable to work with. The barn patio and tent were perfect for our wedding and fit all of our guests (250+) comfortably! The INN on the property was the ideal place for our friends and family to stay and added a “weekend retreat” feel to everything!! Summerset Winery worked super hard to give our wedding every extra touch to be so beautiful! Booking with them was the best wedding planning choice we made… I know we’ll keep coming back to visit for many years!!!

The staff at Summerset was so kind and helpful with assisting us plan our September 10, 2016 wedding. We held both our ceremony and reception at the facility. Living in the Chicagoland area, my family went to look at the venue and, by there word, we booked even before my (now) husband and I even saw it. The staff changed hands pretty close to our wedding, however Anne was very professional and treated our questions as a priority.

We rented the Inn for our bridal party to stay at - and if it's in your budget, I would definitely recommend it. The Inn was a fantastic way for our bridal party to get to know one another and hang out the weekend of the wedding. What a blast.
The day before our wedding, the staff let us in to decorate the upstairs reception area, which was helpful so we weren't rushed the day of. When a storm rolled in right before our rehearsal, Summerset accommodated us on the first floor of the building.

Day of the wedding, we had nothing to worry about. Staff helped make sure all our vendors had everything they needed and they even assisted with some of the decor!

The vines were a perfect scene for our ceremony - and we couldn't have asked for a better day!

Thank you Summerset for making our wedding days the most beautiful and wonderful day of our lives.
