We had our wedding at the Chicago Botanic Garden in May 2015. Connie and her staff were absolutely wonderful to work with. The gardens attention to every last detail, made the day the wedding of our dreams. I couldn't have imagined a more beautiful venue in the Chicago area.

My husband and I had our wedding reception at the Botanic Gardens on August 2nd, 2014. It was an amazing experience! The venue turned out exactly as I had pictured (it felt like a dream). Mary Biller, the wedding events coordinator, was fantastic to work with! She was always helpful with ideas, vendors, timelines, anything! We didn't have a wedding planner but we really didn't need one! Mary helped us set up our little "extras" like the card box, escort cards, wedding favors so we didn't have to worry about anything!

I can't say enough about their catering, either! We had our wedding tasting a few months before the wedding and it was incredibly hard to choose our final options. The appetizers, salads, and main dishes that we ended up going with are some of the best meals we have ever tried!

It was so easy to work with the Botanic Garden - I can't say enough about the setting (it is breathtaking)! I would not look anywhere else if you want a gorgeous wedding venue with a great staff!

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.
