My Husband and I had our reception at the Barn late July! It was absolutely perfect in every aspect. My husband and I could not be more blessed with the way everything turned out. Coordinating with Lindsay was more than easy, it was an absolute breeze and stress free. This was the only venue my husband and I looked at and even considered! We had a 300+ final count. The barn is so accommodating for this, very spacious. It can be very hard to find venues that can accommodate large guest lists . This venue is seriously every photographers dream, so many different opportunities just waiting to be captured. Lindsay also did all of our flowers, both wedding and reception. They were absolutely beautiful and everything I imagined they would be. If you are planning your wedding or reception here there is absolutely no reason to look elsewhere for a florist! So convenient and so worth it! We have absolutely NO regrets & we would HIGHLY recommend this venue.

My husband and I got married at The Barn at Hornbaker Gardens last month. We had the absolute best experience there!! Tara Scott, the coordinator, was the most resourceful, helpful, organized, kind, and professional person to work with. She definitely helped make our experience better than what we ever could've imagined. She responded to all of my emails quickly and didn't get mad at me for sending 7 a day. She took care of everything and totally eased my mind the day before and the day of our wedding. The Barn is a breathtaking venue. We had so many compliments about our venue, even from people we didn't know! The entire staff did an amazing job or making our dreams come true for our wedding day. I would highly recommend this venue to any and every person looking! This place will go above and beyond all your expectations for your wedding day! The venue, the staff, and the views are unbeatable! We can't wait to go back and visit!

The Barn at Hornbaker Gardens was beyond amazing for our June 2018 wedding. Not only is it a fairytale setting, but the staff are INCREDIBLE. We had the privilege of working with Lindsay on our wedding, and she also did all of our flowers. She is AMAZING, both in her role as venue coordinator and florist. She replies to email and phone calls quickly, is always full of helpful advice and recommendations, and she worked with all our vendors to make our day flow smoothly. Our flowers were out of this world beautiful, and at a price that’s almost too good to be true; we could not be happier. We held our ceremony outdoors under the beautiful new arch (decorated by Lindsay!) and had the Barn staff run our sound, including all the processional and recessional music and microphones for our officiant and readers. They did a great job—they were so professional, what a great service to include! The Barn includes so many details, like the tables and chairs, the bride & groom’s rooms, the barware & glasses for tables, the patio space, even small details like the bags game--it’s just the best you’ll find in central IL! The bar service was also amazing, and Lindsay worked with us to get a package that would work for our wedding, which was incredibly reasonably priced for a 200-person wedding. Honestly, we were sold the second we walked in—we would have paid all over again just to get to take our photos on their beautiful grounds!! I am SO happy we had our dream wedding here; it was absolutely gorgeous, and the staff were incredible—they made everything so easy for us on the planning side, and it was SO well executed on our wedding day! Cannot recommend this venue and these awesome people highly enough!

This is a beautiful space for an event. Our client was thrilled with their result and we enjoyed performing there.
I had the pleasure of working with Tara and the staff at Hornbaker this past weekend. Not only is the venue itself beautiful, but I've worked countless events at various venues and this staff was one of the very best. Working with Tara was a breeze and the night went off without a hitch. Bride and Groom were very happy throughout the night, which makes all of our jobs easier. Thanks again!
Excellent Venue! We have been to Hornbaker Gardens quite a bit and it's a great experience every time. Such a beautiful room on an amazing property makes for the perfect location for a Ceremony and Reception. We frequently set up cafe lighting in this venue as well as provide DJ service and the staff is always quick to respond so we can coordinate setup and tear down times. They are always friendly and happy to help however they can. Finding a venue that truly cares about their clients and coordinates well with other vendors is harder to find than you might think. Hornbaker Gardens is truly a gem among the many wedding venue choices! Highly Recommend!
