Facilities and Capacity
With indoor and outdoor event spaces available, The Grove Redfield Estate has many spaces available which are appropriate for special events. Beforehand, the wedding party can make use of the get-ready rooms to prepare, try on their attire, or make changes throughout the day. Afterward, guests can make their way towards one of the ceremony spaces to share the magical moment. Outside, white deck-style chairs can be set up on the lawn for the guests as the couple joins together underneath the floral-covered gazebo. Inside, space can be made available for an alternative ceremony if the elements are not cooperating. The main building features two separate floors, and each one has its own selection of distinctive rooms. These are appropriate for hosting cocktail hours and receptions. The sun room, patio, and rear porch offer suitable areas for guests to mingle before the speeches and the meal.
When the time comes for the reception, the wedding party can assemble in the Great Room. It boasts an impressive cathedral-style ceiling, an inviting fireplace, and ample room for dozens of guests. A dining room is also available elsewhere on the first floor. Here, guests could gather for late-night drinks, hors d’oeuvres, or for a meal with fewer numbers. Up on the next level, the Oakview Room can be found along with a balcony space and the get-ready rooms. What’s more, newlyweds who are planning a larger affair can avail of the sheltered pavilion.

Beautiful and Perfect!
We held our wedding reception at the Grove Redfield Estate and it was perfect. The grounds and estate are both so lovely with lots of charm. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our guests all raved about the location. I would highly recommend using this site for any gathering of 70 or fewer.Sent on 05/13/2019

We couldn't have imagined a more perfect day!
I never dreamed of a fairy tale wedding, but that is exactly what we experienced at the wonderful Grove Redfield Estate. The setting was breathtaking and every detail came together as we had hoped. It couldn't have happened without the capable assistance of Carol and Deborah and their entire staff. It was a pleasure working with all of them; every vendor they referred us to exceeded our expectations. If you choose this amazing venue, you can have every confidence you will feel supported during stressful wedding planning. Every question and issue we faced was met with prompt, courteous and efficient responses. This is a first class organization that deserves its 5 start reviews without question.

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/.
