Dream Central IL Venue!

Highly recommend this venue!!! Not only is it gorgeous- the owners Sarah and Koert are wonderful and will make sure all your needs are met. I had a June wedding at The Woods and it was absolutely stunning. Everything was green and blooming and truly captured the woodsy feel. We also snuck around back during our cocktail hour to take “golden hour” photos and the scenery was perfect. All of the workers were super friendly and truly seemed happy to be there serving our reception! The inside of the venue is just as beautiful as the outside- there was plenty of room for my 200 person reception. They have a Grooms room and Bridal suite that are very nice as well. We did not use them to get ready but it was still so nice to have a private area that me and my bridesmaids could touch up and use the restroom. We decided to rent out the Bar & Grill side of the venue as well and I am so glad we did! It was perfect for cocktail hour and we ended up moving to that side after our reception ended to keep the party going. I had asked Koert and Sarah about doing “Signature Drinks” and not only did they accommodate my request- they helped us make custom drinks that were the star of the show! Sarah also helped me figure out how much beer/wine/liquor to order which I appreciated. Side note- I planned my IL wedding and reception from Colorado. Their communication with me was always timely and professional. You will not regret booking at The Woods!

Excellent experience

Me and my husband met Koert & Sarah when they were still in the process of building The Woods! From the very beginning they were so helpful and very knowledgeable with all things weddings. The venue itself is absolutely stunning and the staff is phenomenal! We took advantage the golf cart they offer to drive over to the nature preserve and have golden hour photos done with our photographer. Our big day ran smoothly thanks to their help! Very pleased overall with our experience and we recommend the venue to everyone!
