i read online that the mansion used to be a funeral home and some wedsites say that this house is haunted. it really criped me out. i asked their rep to tell me a little more about it but she gave me such an attitude. horrible customer service. i would never have my wedding in a place that used to be a funeral home (bad luck).

I recently had my wedding at this location, and I cannot recommend it highly enough. If you're thinking of getting married in the Chicago area and don't want to get hitched in a run-of-the-mill banquet hall, and can't afford steep downtown Chicago prices, this may be the place for you!

It isn't cheap, but it is FAR from expensive for the level of service provided. If you priced out the location, linens, catering, liquor service, cake, etc. individually, I'm certain that the final price tag would come out much, much higher.

We chose the location because not only is the mansion lovely, but they take care of so many details--all we had to provide was a DJ, a florist, and a photographer! If you're planning a large wedding, not having to worry about catering, chair rental, linens, etc. is a HUGE deal--trust me!

Additionally, the space is large enough so that the ceremony can also be held onsite, which is a great thing if you've got a lot of out-of-town guests and don't want to have to worry about people getting from a ceremony location to a reception hall in an unfamiliar city.

We had special requests about a certain wine being served--no problem. We had special needs for the decor--no problem. We had several guests with strict food allergy concerns--no problem. The bridal party had its own dedicated waitstaff (lovely!) and every server seemed honestly delighted to make this day special for us. Jan, our main contact, was a delight to work with and answered all our questions and concerns wonderfully.

My florist (Belles and Thistles--see their website at http://bellesandthistl... and a review on this site, they also did a great job) stated repeatedly that she was very impressed with the professionalism of the staff, and remarked that she felt they were very organized and really had things down to an art. Coming from a woman with over twenty years' experience in floral design, this is no faint praise.

Every guest remarked on what a great time they had, and our deposit was returned promptly less than two weeks after the ceremony. If I had to do it again, I'd absolutely chose them a second time.

I was a bridesmaid at a wedding held here a few weeks ago. The venue is beautiful. It has a lot of character. The staff was outstanding. They were very accommodating to all of the requests. The service was wonderful. The servers made several passes outside to bring drinks and appetizers to the wedding party outside. Food was delicious. I don't know what the final price tag was, but everything about the venue was first class.

This mansion is very beautiful but it's also very old. The price here is not so reasonable but it's a good place to hold a small wedding if you're having one

I have attended weddings at this facility and while it is a pretty old mansion it wasn't very comfortable for a wedding. The home is a bunch of small rooms and the area for eating is held in a tent outside of the mansion. The tent was much more attractive than the rest of the mansion in my opinion. I also did not like that the dance floor area is a small 10' x 10' room. Nobody could see the bride and groom dance and you could hardly fit anyone on the dance floor. It's just not very conducive to a large party with people who want to dance and see what is going on. The food was good but nothing oustanding. I did like that they let the bride and groom bring in their own family photos to put around the mansion to make it personalized to your family.

This is a beautiful place to host your event, such as your wedding. Weve chosen this location for our June 2006 wedding and I couldnt be happier. It is so hard to find a place that feels right. The Mansion is wonderfully decorated but it was rather disappointing that much of the history hadnt been preserved. It was very modern looking, not the classic old style we had hoped for by looking at the website. The woman that were dealing with is somewhat rude and arrogant and hasnt been a great helper thus far, I hope things turn around but its off a main road and its gorgeous so Im pretty much set.

PROS: BEAUTIFUL
CONS: EXPENSIVE, HISTORY IS LOST
