    Beautiful Gale Woods Farm

    My husband and I got married at Gale Woods Farm on October 25th, 2019. From the very start of our tour (on a day that was negative 15 degrees), we fell absolutely in love with everything that Gale Woods had to offer. From the ceremony site overlooking the lake to the reception space big enough to fit all of our friends and family. Not only did we fall in love with the space but we fell in love with Kathryn! She was fantastic throughout the whole experience, from booking our date to answering every question I had (which was a lot!). We could not have picked a better place to have had our marriage begin then Gale Woods Farms. If you are looking for a beautiful and cost-effective venue, I would highly, highly suggest you take a look at Gale Woods Farms!

    Magical June Wedding at Gale Woods Farm

    Our wedding was just as we had hoped, thanks to Gale Woods Farm. It was a beautiful location at an affordable price. Our contact was responsive and helpful at all hours of the day and we felt totally at ease using this venue. It was perfect for our summer wedding. We would highly recommend Gale Woods Farm!

    Three Rivers Park District's reply:

    Krista,

    Thank you so much for the kind words. I really enjoyed getting to know you and Kim. Your wedding day was beautiful. We are so honored you choose to share it with us.

    Best Wedding Venue EVER!

    We could not have had a more perfect wedding, and Gale Woods Farm was such a central element to not only the day but the planning experience. Kathryn was so incredibly easy to work with on the pre-wedding side of things, and she helped us realize our vision with a very organized and well communicated plan (with a backup plan!) She thought of all the details that we would need to hammer out and helped keep us on schedule as we made decisions about each vendor and decorating detail.

    The facility is incredibly beautiful and clean. One guest told us "the setting was idyllic," while another said "I thought this was just a farm I had no idea it was going to be a roving picturesque landscape." We were told by many that it was the best wedding venue they had ever seen. We agree!

    We kept ourselves on a tight budget and Gale Woods was a no-brainer for a venue in which that would be possible. There are no hidden costs and no unreasonable fees. It was literally thousands of dollars less than other venues we looked at. While money was not the only factor in our decision, it took a lot of stress off planning to know that we could pay the bill pretty easily.

    Also, it was very important to us to have a wedding that honored our environmental philosophy. The fact that Gale Woods not only honors but REQUIRES this was a major draw, and they did not disappoint. For any couples who are trying to stay as green as possible, this is your place.

    We would choose Gale Woods again without blinking an eye and were sad to drive away from the big red barn when the night was over!

I love the Three Rivers Park District options for event spaces. There is something for everyone. The staff is great and very responsive to emails. I enjoy working with them and in their event spaces. I recommend them to my clients as options for their different event needs. I have worked with the Silverwood, Gale Woods Farms and Hyland Hills so far and look forward to working in the other spaces they offer as well.

I had the pleasure of working with the staff of the Three Rivers Park District on several weddings. Not only are their locations BEAUTIFUL but they are also very quick when responding to emails and calls. I can't wait to working with them again!
