At Buena Vista Farms, Inc. we strive to make your wedding WEEKEND special, unique and stress free. With luxury cabins for lodging, a spa cabin, 146 acres, two lakes, a temperature controlled building, as well as a large, white, temperature controlled permanent tent, we have many beautiful spots for outdoor weddings and indoor receptions.

Often the bride and attendants spend Friday night together in the cabins, have their nails done and massages, while the groom and his friends enjoy the fishing and athletic facilities. The ladies then get ready for the big event in our lodge building on Saturday morning. Photos start at the Pergola and ancient oak trees overlooking the lake . The old barn offers priceless photo opportunities as well as the 145 acres of woods, lake, and gardens. We offer a pergola or gazebo or wrought iron trellis for gorgeous outdoor weddings.

Your guests are entertained for the Reception in the large, well airconditioned, permanent Tent, completey handicap accessible. Our packages include all decorations and day of event attendant, so your stress is melted away. Well stocked bathrooms, full bar service, wide variety of catered buffet meals and large dance floor provide a unique and comfortable setting for you and your guests to enjoy the evening. Leave the clean up to us, while you and your guests retreat to our resort for lodging in the fully furnished, luxurious cabins. Continue the party with a bonfire and relax to make a wedding WEEKEND full of memories!

We are located on State Highway 67 just 3 miles NW of Jacksonville. Interstate 72 to Highway 67 North is conveniently located for the Springfield area and all of Central Illinois

My husband and I would like to thank you for a terrific planning experience and wedding weekend. We planned our wedding in 6 months. I changed my mind multiple times and Teri was there taking notes so that everything would go as planned. The resource list is WONDERFUL & if her vendors are booked they usually provide another contact for the same service. My advice to anyone wanting to plan a wedding here is do it! The value is awesome, I brought in a lot of extra decorations that I personally wanted but there was no need, Teri has everything! She wanted my day to go the way I had envisioned. Teri is helpful and provides excellent advice but is also not offended when you think a different way than her. Instead of a wedding planner, she's like a wedding guide. :) I appreciate her approach to her business and customers very much. It was also comforting to me to know that she prays for each of her couples. She's so friendly and down to earth, she even did laundry that we accidentally left in the cabin. Now, that is pretty awesome!!

My daughter's wedding was so beautiful and best of all, the day was completely made for our enjoyment. We did not have to orchestrate any set up or tear down for the aesthetically pleasing outdoor wedding or the reception tent. Every detail was attended to without my direction and our wishes were fulfilled. From the cupcake tiers and small chocolates to the head table's "toast" glasses and flowing decorations. The respect and helpfulness never faltered from all of the staff. The attention to detail was extraordinary. I can not rate Buena Vista Farms any higher. All that was left was for us to dance and enjoy our family and friends. If the scale were 1-10 they rate a 10! Thank you Teri and Nestor Gutierrez, it was your personal attention to our details that made the day so wonderful!

Buena Vista Farms is an amazing venue. I got married May 17th, 2014. The outdoor wedding was everything I had ever hoped for. It was beautiful overlooking the lake at the gazebo. The reception in the large white tent afterwards was perfect! Terri took all of our stress away. She decorated the venue to my choosing. What a relief to not have to worry about the small things. Her staff was super friendly as well. Anything I asked for she was there in an instant. I cannot speak more highly of this beautiful venue or Terri. I would recommend anyone considering to get married in the Jacksonville area to go check it out. You won't regret it! I definitely had my dream wedding come true here. Maybe you can too! :)

I was so impressed from the start of meeting Teri who was extremly helpful and creative with ideas. She was a huge wealth of knowledge and always accessable to help. My friends wedding wouldn't have been so great without not only the beautiful location but the help of Teri. I highly recommend this location for any event
