    Beautiful outdoor venue and kind, professional owner

    We had the pleasure of working with Beth to plan our ceremony and reception at White Pines. She was so professional, had answers to every question, and lots of amazing ideas based on so many decades of experience running weddings at White Pines. The wedding canyon is BEAUTIFUL, perfect for anyone wanting an outdoor ceremony. The price is affordable (especially compared with Chicago locations- you can't beat it) and the staff is experienced and professional. You can have a whole weekend with cabins, campfires, and cookouts- highly recommend this experience for Chicago and Illinois couples!

    Dream Wedding because of White Pines!

    We had our wedding in April there of 2019, Beth was great to work with, took criticism well and did not hesitate to do her best to fulfill every request given. Even if she could not she always did her best to find the best alternative. The scenery here, even in April is amazing. We had cold conditions with no leaves on the trees and we still had amazing photos. The food was fantastic - even with the limited choices we loved everything they had and we had a hard time choosing exactly what we wanted since every plate was delicious! And honestly their wedding packages are very affordable as we looked at other venues and theirs was definitely the best ! I recommend this place 100%

    Fall Wedding at Wedding Canyon

    We had an outdoor reception in the Emerald Aisle. It was absolutely beautiful. We are Jewish so we asked for many special requests and they were so accommodating and flexible. Great, talented staff that are super invested in ensuring it is the most special day. On top of this great service, their honeymoon cabins are absolutely beautiful. It was the perfect ending to an amazing day.

    White Pines Resort Weddings's reply:

    Emilie, thanks so much for writing a review. We sincerely appeciate it. Our entire staff loved your reception. Seeing all your amazing dances and traditions was such a treat for all of us.
