Pick a wedding location that shows off your natural beauty.
Imagine your wedding amidst flowering trees, beautiful gardens, stunning autumn leaves, or pristine snow-covered lakes.

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.

Where and how to I even begin to put into words how wonderful our wedding was because of The Morton Arboretum. I'd like to start off by saying Jennie and Jacqueline are angels! We had them both to aid in the wedding planning process. Jennie made planning a wedding during a pandemic less stressful. It's comforting knowing no matter what the world threw at us, we would get married at The Morton Arboretum. They both assured us everything would work out and it did. Jennie and Jacqueline suggested so many beautiful ideas in order to make our day perfect. Pandemic or not I wouldn't change anything about our day and I can't thank this beautiful place enough. Not only does The Morton Arboretum have natural beauty but the food is AMAZING! If budget is a concern, they have many options to fit your budget and wedding size. Our family still rave about how perfect our wedding was and beautiful. I promise if you visit there, it will be impossible to not fall in love with this beautiful place. Here are some pictures to prove it!

Beautiful venue and amazing staff!
When we decided on a fall wedding, my husband and I immediately thought of the Morton Arboretum for its beautiful grounds. We met with Kim and she was extremely kind, thorough, and professional in explaining all of the pricing options and packages. We also had our tasting with Jacqueline (since Morton requires use of their in-house caterer) and she was very flexible and helpful! The food was AMAZING - we had a brunch wedding with mimosas and everyone loved it. The staff during the wedding were so on top of things and everything was extremely well run. For a beautiful venue, amazing food, and professional staff, I highly recommend Morton Arboretum!Sent on 12/30/2019
