You literally cannot be disappointed by a venue this gorgeous. I had my wedding reception at the McGinley Pavilion and knew the aesethics would be perfect, but was delighted to find that the food and staff were outstanding as well. This dream wedding venue comes at a cost--but one that is totally worth it.

The Chicago Botanic Garden is an absolutely amazing site for an outdoor wedding. They have several unique outdoor spots for photos, ceremony, and cocktails, each with their own beautiful flair. The McGinley Pavilion can be transformed as much or as little as you want, and is wonderful just as is also. Looking out onto the lake, it is great both day and night. Working with Connie and all of the staff just adds to the smooth, professional, and all around amazing experience of having your wedding at CBG. Expensive, but totally worth every penny!

Chicago Botanic Gardens is absolutely beautiful. Once you see it as a possible venue option, it is hard to consider having your wedding anywhere else. Working with Kristina and her staff at Chicago Botanic Gardens was one of the best parts of my wedding. They were amazing to work with and always willing to answer the million questions I had. I couldn't recommend working with Kristina and Chicago Botanic Gardens highly enough.

Connie Bolle, was GREAT!! the gardens hold a lot of memories for us, and this is just one more. The food to really spectacular from Culinary Landscape, their own vendor..we were at first a little skeptical about using them but they really hit it out of the park!!!!! And we are total foodies! Thank you Connie for putting all of our worries to rest and helping put this event together without all the worries!!!!

The ladies who set up my event were the most professional, polite, and helpful people I have ever met in my entire life. The Gardens itself is truly amazing, and really, every staff there was just so above and beyond, even if they weren't working with Facility Rental. Whitney, Tammy, and Ann were so amazing -- nobody should go anywhere else for any type of event. I was totally blown away! They treated my bride like a queen-- I really was impressed.
