    Beautiful place for a ceremony

    I am so happy I had my ceremony at the Redfield Estate! Carol was so easy to work with and she answered all of my questions! The weather was beautiful and all of my photos looked great!

    John & I fell in love with this venue when we got engaged about a year & a half ago but all the dates we had in mind were booked.
    I told them to give me a call if they had any cancellations & on july 25th 2018 I got the call.
    We went to see it on the 28th & booked it for August 24th. : )
    It was a HUGE job to tackle in only 27 days but with the help of Deborah & Carol in the office at the grove & the preferred vendors they work with...I was able to pull it off.
    The whole entire thing from start to finish was ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!!
    I will be forever grateful to The Grove for allowing me to have the Wedding of my dreams!
    I will never forget it! The word I keep hearing it most often described as from our guest is...ENCHANTING!
    We had SO MUCH FUN!!!
    They entire Grove staff were professional, accommodating, & friendly.
    We can't thank you ALL enough!!!!
    Love always,
    Mr. & Mrs. Dolan

    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/.
