    Amazing Experience at the Glen Club

    We had our reception at the Glen Club on 2/15/2020 and everyone on staff truly made our day so special. Michael was amazing to work with and made the planning process so fun! I didn't have a wedding planner and I was a little nervous the month before the big day. After we had our call with Michael a week before the event I knew I wasn't going to have to worry about anything at all - and the day of the wedding was a dream! The venue was beautiful - the food was amazing, the bar was perfect and Michael and his team made our wedding so fun for my husband and I! We got to relax and enjoy while they magically took care of everything. We found our photographer and DJ through the Glen Club as well and they were awesome too. Chicago Brides and Grooms - check out the Glen Club!

    High quality, great location, very happy

    I cannot say enough good things about The Glen and their events team, especially the Director, Michael Koenig. Michael has much experience planning events, especially weddings, and it shows. He is attentive, has great ideas and many suggestions for top vendors. It was like having access to a personal wedding planner. He goes out of his way to create the wedding that you envision and adds little touches you would not think of on your own. The entire staff is great, hardworking, and professional. They were very understanding when having to plan a wedding under the changing pandemic guidelines and very flexible when we kept changing dates and drastically lowered headcount. They were able to create a wedding that followed all social distancing guidelines, but it still felt like our special day and we will never forget it. We have no regrets on any of the compromises we invariably had to make to accommodate COVID restrictions, and most of that is because Michael and The Glen staff made those decisions easy and offered some creative suggestions to make it all work. The venue itself is also beautiful, with great views of the golf course, the food was very good, and the bar service was excellent. I would highly recommend The Glen for your next wedding or any other event. We still want to celebrate our wedding with all of the friends and family who could not be with us this year, and plan on doing that in 2021 at The Glen, we know they will do a great job making that day special as well.

    Fabulous venue - highly recommend!

    We are thrilled that our daughter and son in law chose the Glen Club as the venue for both their wedding ceremony and reception. From the first visit Michael and the team there made it an easy and happy experience. The facility itself is beautiful and convenient, with a gorgeous wedding garden, a terrace for cocktail hour with a fantastic view of a lake and the golf course, a stunning ballroom, and a 20 room hotel on the top floor with a beautiful bridal suite. It also is just a footpath walk away from the Glen Town Center with restaurants, shops, and a movie theater, and less than a mile from a train station to downtown Chicago.

    The food was amazing! We had so many guest compliments. The staff was wonderful and when it started to rain about an hour before the ceremony they quickly moved the reception tables out of the way behind a screened wall and set up in the ballroom indoors. The rain stopped, and they quickly dried high top tables and managed to still have the cocktail hour outdoors - and it was beautiful.
    We are very pleased to highly recommend this wonderful venue!

    Sherri -

    Thank you so much for your kind words! It was an absolute pleasure working with you and your family on such a wonderful event. We can't wait to see the photos.

    Best,
    Michael & The Glen Club Team

It is always a pleasure to work with Michael and others at The Glen Club. They are always very friendly and accommodating, and we at Artquest are happy to work with them on a pretty consistent basis setting up weddings large and small. It's always refreshing to have someone who understands the industry we are in, who has the experience that is necessary to successfully run larger events without any chaos, and who is interested in making everything run as smoothly and efficiently as possible. Michael in particular fills that role really well.
