Best wedding venue

Our experience at The Drake was incredibly special! This was the first venue we saw and we loved how friendly everyone was and how beautiful the space was. We met with Karla who was very kind and truly a life saver! Karla helped us to create our dream venue and we can’t thank her enough. Karla and Jodi were our communication leading up to the wedding and it was prompt and we always understood the tasks we had to complete. Our questions were always answered quickly and with a response that handled our request. On our wedding day the Drake staff was very helpful to our parents setting up and the staff at our wedding were amazing! This venue is absolutely stunning and everyone did everything they could to make this the best day ever!! We could no be happier with our choice and would recommend this venue for future events!

Beautiful wedding at the Drake in Oak Brook

Our wedding at the Drake was perfection from start to finish. The staff was incredibly helpful both ahead of the wedding and all wedding weekend long. Melissa was our coordinator at the Drake and was organized, responsive and kind. After the wedding we received so many compliments from guests about the elegant event space.

The Drake Oak Brook - AMAZING!

Having our wedding at The Drake Oak Brook was absolutely amazing. We loved working with Melissa (and anyone else that we came into contact with there along the way) Their responsiveness, professionalism, and amazing service and attention to detail put me at ease during a very stressful time and made the entire wedding weekend our DREAM.
