The Morton Arboretum is a stunning outdoor museum of trees with majestic trees, gardens, lakes, and natural landscapes, located 25 miles west of Chicago in Lisle, Illinois. The Morton Arboretum specializes in elegant locations for outdoor ceremonies and catered indoor or outdoor tented receptions--surrounded by breath-taking views of trees and nature. It is the perfect place to make lasting memories and capture magnificent wedding photos. When you select The Morton Arboretum as your dream wedding location, you are supporting the planting and conservation of trees.
November 2020-April 2021 The Morton Arboretum has a special offering for you. Your intimate wedding ceremony can be held in our elegant Founder's Room. Formerly the library in the Morton family mansion, the Founder's Room features ornately carved woodwork, a marble fireplace and stained glass windows.
