    most memorable and smooth wedding experience!

    couldn’t have asked for a better vendor/venue to celebrate our wedding ceremony! NIU and specifically, Gina Kenyon, made the entire experience of having a COVID wedding super smooth, memorable and super enjoyable. it truly wouldn’t have been possible without her help!

    we hosted a 3-day indian wedding at NIU in late august. with COVID, it was becoming super stressful planning our events and figuring out the logistics. but gina, made it all possible.
    my family and i want to express our deepest gratitude for all their efforts, support and help. I really believe that the events wouldn't have been as amazing as they were if it weren't for the NIU staff, especially Gina!! Every single person who attended was super impressed and pleasantly surprised on how well everything was organized from the NIU side - they were extremely impressed with how much help and effort she showed throughout the festivities. We cannot thank her enough for everything she did -- whether its waking up super early to accommodate my hair and make up or letting the caterers in, setting up the rooms well in advance along with the centerpieces, super quick tear downs and getting ready for the next event, and just overall flexibility with last minute changes and requests - not once did i hear a "no" from her in anything we requested. I am super appreciative of that and it just made the whole process very smooth and reliving for us! our sincerest thank you!

    Gina from NIU is fantastic. She is organized, responds to emails/phone calls very quickly, is fun, creative and will work with you until you feel 100% confident/comfortable. NIU's venue is Naperville is SUPER flexible. We were able to bring in our own alcohol, our own decorations, were able to select from 3 different catering vendors. They even let us set up a custom bags (cornhole) set for the patio during cocktail hour. The 2-story atrium is beautiful and GREAT for pictures! The outside patio is fantastic, great for pictures, a great gathering place for guests and makes for a nice "breath of fresh air" during the reception. Our wedding was PERFECT and it had a LOT to do with the flexibility and look/feel of Northern Illinois University Conference Center. Do yourself a favor and at least check out the venue. Gina is great, you won't be disappointed.

    We had an absolutely stunning wedding reception at the NIU Naperville facility! The staff at NIU ensured that our day was absolutely perfect. They took care of all of our decorating and did an outstanding job. They even offered to put together the lanterns that we were going to have strung from the ceiling in the event that we ran out of time to do so. This location and the caterers that they work with, specifically My Chef, are wonderful! I would recommend this spot to anyone who wants to have a stress-free planning experience, work with overly helpful staff, and have a beautiful reception location. All of our guests were blown away by how beautiful our reception was and how convenient this facility was!!! We are trilled that we decided on this location and are so happy with how our wedding turned out!
