About

.The Well at the Distillery is a historic wedding venue located at Thornton Distilling Company, in Thornton, Illinois. The Bielfeldt family founded the distillery in 1857. The building has survived through fires, floods, and even the Prohibition Era. Al Capone established domain over the premises, only relinquishing his grasp in 1931 during his fall from power. It was in 1957 that beer brewing activities ceased at the facility, taking on various guises of other industries until its restoration in 2014. The Well at the Distillery refurbished the entire space as well as the equipment, bringing to life a new era of alcohol production. Standing as a testament of Chicago's enduring spirit, this venue is proud to share both its history and unique experience with couples celebrating a new chapter of their lives together.There is plenty to both see and explore at The Well at the Distillery. Light floods into nearly every room, illuminating the space with an ethereal glow. The Well at the Distillery offers hands-on planning and wedding day services with recommendations for unique vendors. Couples who are seeking a truly outstanding and memorable venue are encouraged to reach out to discuss their wants and needs to find a solution that is tailor-fit to their wedding occasion.

    Perfect location for our big day!

    My husband and I could not be happier that we chose to have our wedding at The Well. From the moment we had our initial meeting at Thornton, we fell in love with the location and knew we had to get married here. Andreá and Parian were so helpful throughout the process and very responsive to any questions we had leading up to our big day. We loved having our wedding at Thornton! We were the first wedding in Cooper’s Hall and our wedding went off without a hitch! I couldn’t say enough good things about this venue and the staff. Our guests had such a great time and we still are getting compliments from our guest that this was their favorite wedding they attended. Thanks again Thornton!!
