We are SO honored to have been selected as a 2020 COUPLES' CHOICE Award winner.

The Grove Redfield Estate is an award winning wedding and event venue located in Glenview, Illinois on the grounds of The Grove Nature Preserve, a National Historic Landmark. A charming property, this elegant setting is ideal for intimate occasions such as ceremonies, weddings, engagements, anniversaries, milestones and life celebrations.Our maximum guest count is 125 outdoors on the grounds or inside the outdoor Pavilion for a cocktail style event with limited tables and chairs, 110 for a fully seated event in the Pavilion, and 50-75 guests for cold weather events inside the historic house.

Facilities and Capacity

Redfield Estate offers both indoor and outdoor facilities featuring a 1929 Craftsman style home, an outdoor Pavilion and a Gazebo on our expansive grounds. Plan your ceremony under the cover of the beautiful stone Pavilion, complete with dramatic outdoor fireplace and urns filled with seasonal plants and flowers, on the lawn near our majestic 125 year old oak tree, or, under the woodland Gazebo just a short walk from the house, across our rustic bridge. Should the weather be uncooperative or if you are planning a winter wedding, you may also say your vows inside the Great Room in the house.

Enjoy the views outside through the breathtaking leaded glass windows throughout the house where you may catch a glimpse of deer. The loft area overlooking the Great Room is ideal for for musicians or DJ's to perform. Three elegant dressing rooms are available for the wedding party's preparations. Enjoy cocktails on the patio after your ceremony before moving to your reception for dinner and dancing.

    Great experience

    The Grove Redfield Estate is absolutely gorgeous. It was super photogenic and beautiful for our mid-July wedding. They have a number of ceremony options, including multiple rain back-up plans and an air conditioned house for getting ready. They are also super affordable for the area. Deborah was very accommodating of our multiple visits and even arranged for us to bring our wedding party so they could see it beforehand. We live streamed our wedding, and there were plenty of outlets (although we provided our own internet). With mosquito patches and bug spray, there weren’t major bug issues. We highly recommend this venue!

    Beautiful setting!

    We hosted our ceremony and reception at The Grove, and had a wonderful wedding! They offer many different options for ceremony / cocktails / and dining. The grounds are stunning and provide plenty of spots for photos. When choosing an outdoor venue we were nervous about what we would do if it were to rain, but they have an awesome indoor space as a backup. It's peaceful, beautiful, has easy access for vendors, their staff is friendly and helpful, and you can have your ceremony, reception, changing rooms, etc. all in one spot. What more could you ask of a venue?

    The Grove Redfield Estate's reply:

    Thank you so much Ryan. We could not have asked for a more delightful couple to have at our venue. We are so glad the date worked for you, and that you had such a memorable evening with us.

    Beautiful venue!

    WOW! We had the best experience at The Grove. We had to change our plans due to covid and ended up having a more intimate gathering here. Deborah was so pleasant to work with and the grounds were beautiful. We got married on May 30, 2021 and our guests are still raving about the space. Highly recommend!

    The Grove Redfield Estate's reply:

    We can't thank you enough for your kind words Taylor. You and Aaron were such a pleasure to have here at The Grove Redfield Estate. Such stunning photos. We are thrilled to have been part of your wonderful celebration.

One of the most magical places a couple can host their wedding reception (and ceremony)! We simply love the Grove and all it has to offer. From their sprawling acres with winding creeks, a stone gazebo perfect for photos, benches scattered for guests to simply sit and take in all the scenery, to a gorgeous pavilion with a roaring fireplace. We love everything that the Grove has to offer. If you are hosting a more intimate affair, we definitely suggest you take a walk around the grounds and let your imagination run wild with all the possibilities for your special event. Carol is a delight to work with and their caterer options are top in the industry! We look forward to working with you again soon Carol!

The staff at the Redfield estate is very friendly and dedicated and contributes to make a wedding at the Grove a very enjoyable experience. From the main coordinator to the bartender, every person at the Refield estate was very welcoming. The location is the perfect setting for an outdoor wedding but provides nice alternatives when the weather is not on your side. I liked the opportunity to walk in the gardens and to explore the woods while photographing my clients, all within a couple minutes from the main buildings. The atmosphere is very relaxed and exotic and put this little gem of a venue in a category of its own.

The Redfield Estate at the Grove is an extraordinary setting for a wedding, especially a summer affair. There's plenty of space for an elegant, intimate outdoor ceremony on the lawn, and the option of dining and dancing inside the mansion itself or in the outdoor pavilion. The Chicago wedding DJ professionals of Fourth Estate Audio are frequent performers at the Redfield Estate, and we appreciate the attentiveness of the staff to client, guest and vendor alike. Every event is truly memorable. Here's a gallery of one of ours: https://www.pinterest.com/chicagodjlights/stacy-pj-jayawardene-real-chicago-wedding/.
