Josh and I are beyond grateful for the amazing experience that we had at the Pavilion. From day one, Kaci was so helpful and patient with helping us figure out our wedding details. I knew from speaking with her and dealing with her, that we would be in good hands. Taneel was assigned as my day off my day of coordinator, and she was BEYOND helpful. Taneel and I communicated weekly through e-mails to make sure all of my day-of details were worked out. She was extremely professional, patient, and detail-oriented, which I can definitely appreciate. I was worried that with the venue being an hour and a half away from where I call home, that it may be difficult to work out some details, but she took care of everything and really helped me remain calm and confident that the wedding day would go smoothly. Grace was also at the wedding venue on the day of, and was the first person to greet me in the morning. She was so calm and relaxed herself, which made me even more confident that I had nothing to worry about. I cannot thank the staff at the Pavilion enough for all of their hard work. I have not stopped hearing about how wonderful the night was from guests, and I know a lot of that credit goes to the Pavilion. The venue was elegant and rustic at the same time, and was the absolute perfect place for my husband and I to hold a reception at. I could not be happier with our experience. The Pavilion gave us a night we will never forget and we are tremendously grateful for each and every person who put thought and time into our big day!
Everyone apart of the Pavilions team was amazing! We wouldn't change a thing about our wedding and the venue was beautiful. We have nothing but good things to say and recommend the Pavilion to anyone looking for a wedding venue!
The venue, service, staff, and environment are perfect in every way. The venue was magical and the staff at The Pavilion will truly make your wedding day absolute perfection. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding process, wedding, and staff. We will definitely be back to stay at the Copperstone Inn on the property as well!
Ryan and I could not dream of having our wedding anywhere else but here! Jennifer and Kacie provided very quick responses to any questions we had concerning the wedding, which helped relieve my stress! Since we live an hour and a half away from the Pavilion, we were unfamiliar with any sort of vendors within the area. We used some of the Pavilion's recommended vendors and they all were fabulous! On our wedding day, our coordinator made the day go by without a hitch. Still, to my knowledge, I am not aware of anything that went wrong on our day. The staff was unbelievable! We received so many compliments on the venue and the food! We could not be happier with our choice! Thank you Pavilion Team!!!
Beautiful Venue. Amazing staff. Delicious food. Everything was perfect. The Pavilion made my dream wedding a reality.
Our family had high expectations for the Pavilion because of a recommendation that we had gotten and they exceeded all of them! The service was warm, friendly and efficient. The food was outstanding and the venue was elegant yet rustic at the same time. Kaci and Bobbi were very responsive and a delight to work with. Loved every minute from beginning to end!
Bobbi and her team exceeded our expectations! The staff was amazing, friendly, accommodating and professional. Our every wish was granted. We requested a specific timeline be followed for dinner/speeches and their timing was impeccable. The food was served hot and delicious. I was stunned at how many servers they had to quickly serve our 270+ guests. The late night snacks were delicious and the chef did a great job cooking our pizza (like they just came out of the oven at the Pizza Villa). The table settings were incredible. The Pavilion partnered with Event Floral to create an enchanted garden that looked like something out of a fairy tale! The Pavilion lives up to their reputation to the fullest!
Thank you so much to everyone at The Pavilion at Orchard Ridge Farms and Henrici's catering. Everyone absolutely loved the venue and went for thirds during dinner. It has been two weeks since we got married and our guests are still raving over the whole day!
Thank you again for making my day so special!
Book it! The Pavilion was a beautiful place to have our ceremony and reception. The guests could not get over how amazing the food was. The property is so beautiful and we loved the openness of the venue. Everything was perfect and the staff was so helpful. We would highly recommend this venue to any couple that does not want a standard banquet hall type of reception. It was absolutely perfect!!
We fell in love with this venue from the minute we walked in the front door, and cancelled our other two appointments with other venues the next day. Had nothing but an outstanding experience from start to finish thanks to Kacie and her staff. Almost every single guest commented that it was the most beautiful wedding that they had ever been to. You'll love everything about the Pavilion!!
They were top notch professional and made everything run smoothly. I would strongly recommend this venue. We got comments from our guests: the best food ever at any wedding, the most beautiful venue ever, very personal and nice wedding, great staff and very professional. It was just a fabulous experience. They were so helpful in the planning. And Peter, the Chef,is amazing-not only is the food fantastic but he makes it look like a piece of art.
There are no words which I can say that have not already been said. The venue, food, staff and grounds are perfect! Everything about The Pavilion is exceptional in each and every way. If you want to further enjoy your wedding book the Copperstone Inn for the wedding party the night before and night of the wedding. I have replayed our daughter's wedding a thousand times in my mind and would not change a thing. Unbelievable Venue, Unbelievable Day! A monstrous thank you for all involved - your vision to create such an amazing place for others to enjoy is unsurpassed.
If you are looking for a beautiful rustic venue that will make sure everything about your wedding day is perfect then look no further! Everyone on the staff at the Pavilion is so professional and makes sure that you are taken care of every step of the way. This place is worth the money!! Our pictures turned out beautiful! Our guests are still raving about how gorgeous the venue was and how amazing the food was! I kept hearing that it was "the best wedding food they have ever had"! Our event coordinator for the day was Shane and he was amazing! He made sure every detail was taken care of that I asked of him. He was there first thing in the morning and made sure to keep me updated throughout the day. Everything I asked of him was executed flawlessly. Before the wedding I was emailing back and forth with Kacie, Marissa, and Cortney. They were all very professional and made sure everything came together. I cannot thank you and your team enough! I really cannot think of anything that went wrong that day. I wouldn't change a thing as everything was perfect! I highly recommend this venue for your ceremony and reception!
I could not have asked for a better experience than the one we had with The Pavilion for our wedding this summer. Planning a wedding is stressful and no easy task, but the staff goes above and beyond to answer any questions you may have and to accommodate you in any way possible. I have no idea what I would have done without them through the planning process! They made us feel so comfortable, we trusted them with every aspect of our wedding and never doubted for a second that it would turn out anything less than perfect. They absolutely delivered on our wedding day, everything was exactly how we wanted it and it was nothing less than a fairy tale experience. We got countless compliments from guests on the venue, staff, and food. Not only is The Pavilion staff amazing, but their recommended vendors were fantastic as well. Every single one of our vendors was on their list and we had the best experience with each and every one of them. I would relive my wedding experience at The Pavilion a hundred more times if I could! I HIGHLY recommend this venue to anyone who is looking.
The Pavilion staff was absolutely amazing through out the entire process! They took care of everything that day with no questions asked! They worked diligently, seamlessly, and our day was absolutely perfect. We heard back within minutes from any email we sent with questions answered. My husband said "they were like ninjas" someone spilled it was cleaned in an instant. They made sure our day went as smooth as possible. The food was to die for! Henrici's did an exceptional job! Cooking 150 filets absolutely perfectly is hard to do! All in all this venue is worth every penny we spent!
Absolutely amazing! Not only is the venue beautiful and the exclusive caterer delicious (how often can you say that about wedding food?), BUT they made they rehearsal and the wedding a breeze! Kacie and Summer worked together to make me stress-free. I literally had no concerns the day of the wedding, thanks to them. I had no idea that ALL the staff at the Pavilion would be so helpful and accommodating. They have done so many weddings that they have it down. They anticipate your needs before you even ask for anything. We even had to switch our ceremony from outdoor to indoor the day-of because of inclement weather and they made it so seamless. I didn't even have to lift a finger. Everyone was telling me that my wedding was the best they'd been to in a while. A huge thanks to the Pavilion at Orchard Ridge Farms!
P.S. Definitely check out the winter pricing- it's a great deal!
The staff was amazing to work with!! They were so helpful and they were extremely professional. I would highly recommend the Pavilion! Also the food is amazing!!
My husband and I had an amazing experience from planning to hosting our wedding at the Pavilion. Kacie, Pavilion Coordinator, and all The Pavilion staff were excellent. Kacie made everything seem so easy for us, although I know everyone worked really hard to make our event amazing. Our (many) emails were always answered promptly and professionally. The venue was extremely flexible. On our actual wedding day, Kacie and Ellise were there every minute to make sure things ran smoothly and be the calm voices of reason on a chaotic day. They were incredibly gracious and helpful and we were glad to be in their capable hands.
The venue is absolutely gorgeous and we received so many compliments from our guests. The lighting and fireplace made everything look magical. The property in which the venue sits is also beautiful and provides for many photo opportunities. The food was delicious and also subject to rave reviews from our guests.
The staff at Orchard Ridge Pavilion was friendly, professional, and a joy to work with. Being an outside coordinator working with an inhouse event planner ran very smoothly. It was wonderful working with a staff that shared the same vision for my couple, Nathan and Ashley Kershner. The venue was very accomodating to the guests and always made sure no detail went overlooked.
Thank you for making my experience just as wonderful as the bride and groom's!
When first looking for a venue, we thought them a little pricey. After sitting down with Kaci and going thru options for our reception. We found them to be very professional and fun to work with. Yea, expensive in some ways, but you get what you pay for. They were off the charts with the quality of food presented. We received raving compliments how good the food was and the serving amount from our guests.. The appetizers outstanding, both in service and quality... There was a table with plenty of options and two hot appetizers being served butler style. The dinner was their Harvest chicken and 6oz filet with roasted veggies. The quality of food, OUTSTANDING. The quantity if anything was to much. Not a complaint. we actually scaled back in that area and still was plenty. The service was amazing. They do not miss anything.
This was the most amazing wedding experience possible! Steve and I couldn't have been happier with how smoothly our day went. From our first visit when we were still researching venues to our wedding day, all the staff at the Pavilion was friendly and knowledgeable . All of our family and friends were so impressed with not only the venue itself, which is pretty amazing, but the food was beyond perfect. I would highly, highly recommend this venue and their caterer , Henricis , for a wedding. Also, their preferred vendor list which we relied on, was a list of amazing and highly professional people that I would also definitely recommend. I am very happy we chose this venue for our wedding and thank you Pavilion and staff for everything!! Brenda and Steve
I know that writing this review won't even give this venue enough credit, but it will give you an idea of how wonderful it truly is. First, let me say that this is by far the most beautiful wedding venue that I have ever seen. It is the true definition of a "diamond in the rough". When making our decision of where to have our wedding I knew based off of the pictures I would like it, but then on our first visit...I LOVED IT!!! Growing up in the Midwest I've grown to loving the rustic, farm feel. This venue however creates that environment, but the facility is absolutely beautiful. We just recently had our wedding here about 1 week ago and I have received so many compliments by everyone who attended.
Kacie and Grace from the pavilion were constantly a phone call away to answer all of my crazy questions during the planning process and went above and beyond on my wedding day. I have a bit of OCD ;) and I was worried that things wouldn't be set up the way I envisioned them, but when I walked into the venue after the ceremony, it was nothing short of perfect. Cortney and Marissa from Henrici's (the food vendor) had everything on point! The food was absolutely TOP-NOTCH. We didn't have one complaint about the food and people are still talking about it a week later. The bartenders were there 24/7 and that made for some very happy guests. What a great staff all the way around. If you are at all thinking about using the pavilion as your choice, don't think twice!
The Pavilion was everything we dreamed of and more! The staff was friendly, prompt with their responses to my questions, and made me feel so relaxed the day of the wedding. The venue is gorgeous, the food was amazing, and I could not have asked for a better wedding night. Kacie Benjamin was extremely helpful as a wedding coordinator and I would highly recommend this venue to anyone interested in a stress free and fun wedding day!
The pavilion is the most unique and beautiful venue. The staff is professional, courteous and kind. They were easy to work with and very responsive. I highly recommend any bride looking in to them if you wan a unique and rustic space for your wedding!
I came across Orchard Ridge Farms on pinterest while I was looking for a semi-local venue that was as beautiful on the inside as it was outdoors in case of the unpredictable weather in IL (I live in Chicago). When I saw pictures I knew I had to go check it out in person and as soon as we arrived we knew this place was the one. This place is STUNNING! The outdoor grounds have huge willow trees where we had our ceremony up on the hill, a gorgeous pond and orchards, and then there is the pavilion, which is breathtaking inside with the high ceilings and glass panoramic doors. I wanted something that was rustic without feeling to "farm-y" and this was it-extremely classy and elegant!!!! We hosted a fully kosher Jewish wedding and the staff was so open-minded, accommodating, and WONDERFUL to work with. We mainly worked with Kacie and she is a dream-responds quickly, helps recommend vendors, and made everything run super-smooth. I HIGHLY recommend hiring Taneel with Favor* wedding planning. She is affiliated with the venue and worth every penny with making everything run smoothly the day of the wedding. The staff were all so friendly and professional and made the entire day stress-free. Every detail was accounted for by them and it made it so I could truly enjoy my entire wedding! This place seriously has it all...our guests came from Milwaukee and Chicago and it was a great mini getaway for everyone and many people said it was the most beautiful venue they ever saw. As far as vendors we used C Tyson Photography and Autumn Tree Films videography who are both very familiar with the venue and staff--both were AMAZING! They knew all the best spots on the property for photos! I also recommend staying at the Copperstone Inn that night! I truly had my dream wedding and it was due to the magnificent venue and staff! Thank you Orchard Ridge!
