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.

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/.
