The Grove Redfield Estate venue offers a beautiful natural setting for indoor/outdoor events. The charming historic house is a lovely location for a reception and a memorable ceremony out on the grounds, perhaps at the woodland gazebo or using our brand new large outdoor covered pavilion. Events of no more than 125 are best for an intimate, elegant event. Read less

The Grove/Redfield Estate.. absolutely beautiful. After a little bit of research we landed on this venue. It was winter when we first saw the venue in person. The trees were dead and there was snow all over the place preventing us from really getting a good idea of what the grounds looked like. There WERE some wildlife visitors which made the tour really cool! The staff here is extremely friendly and accommodating. They were quick to respond to any questions I had and there were no sort of hidden rental fees or anything. They were available when we needed them to be and the day of our event they weren't visibly present (which was great, so you didn't feel like you were being babysat) but were still available when we needed them! For example, the day of our event.. half way through.. we decided we wanted some fans. 5 minutes later the crew is rolling out the fans! We had our rehearsal at the venue and the staff made sure to be present for us on that day. Our wedding was in August so of course the grounds looked very different than they did in the winter.. but in an amazing way. All of our guests commented on how gorgeous the setting was. Everything was beautifully green, trees full, flowers blooming.. just gorgeous. Even the wildlife! Not many people could say they had deer, chipmunks and baby raccoon crash their wedding, right?! This IS a public area but once rented out - you have a LOT of space to yourself and we didn't have to worry about strangers wandering in on our wedding happenings. On top of the grounds being beautifully kept, the house is beautiful as well. It was nice to have a back-up plan if it were to rain that day and you didn't have to compromise with the beauty of the scenery. I would absolutely recommend this venue to everyone and anyone. You won't be disappointed!!

My fiancee and I loved the venue and we are very thankful that Carol with her staff made us feel welcome at all times. Carol worked with us throughout the entire process and provided exceptional service. Carol and her assistant were always available if we had a question or concern. I'm especially happy that our guests enjoyed themselves and that I was able to marry my best friend at this location.

I've always wanted my wedding in a garden setting and away from all the noisiness of the streets; I must say The Redfield Estate gave us just what we wanted. The venue is just filled with beauty all around and my favorite part was being able to have my ceremony and wedding all in one place. Our guests felt very comfortable with the open space the Grove had provided. Also, what made our planning much easier was being able to work with Carol and staff. They were always available to answer any questions whether by phone or via email. We had many ideas on how to decorate and Carol was there to guide us in the right direction on how to do so. We are just all around grateful for this hidden gem and for the people we were able to work with. I would definitely recommend this venue for a wedding!

The Redfield Estate was the perfect venue for our wedding of about 50 guests. As I was planning the wedding from out of town, I had to book the place based on pictures, but the beautiful house grounds did not disappoint when I was finally able to see the place in person. Even our photographer (who had not photographed here before) was genuinely excited about all the great photo opportunities in such a beautiful place!

We held the ceremony on the front lawn under the oak tree and then held dinner and the rest of the reception inside the house. We had originally planned to have dancing and a dessert table set up in the pavilion, but the threat of rain, general muggy weather, and bugs convinced us to move that part into the air-conditioned house. However, it still worked out great! We held our first dance and our band played on the balcony overlooking the great room. Due to the small size of our wedding, everyone could sit together in the great room for dinner. We just moved a few tables for the dancing later on in the night.

The staff we worked with, both Carol and Mary, were very accommodating and helpful with allowing us to visit the place for planning, make pre-wedding deliveries, and reminding us of upcoming payments. We would highly recommended the Redfield Estate to anyone looking for a wedding venue that perfectly accommodates a smaller crowd.

If you do choose Redfield Estate, we would also like to recommend Refined Dining, our chosen caterer from the approved list. They were great to work with, very reasonably priced, helped with all the setup and take down, and their bartender was even willing to learn how to properly pour our home-brewed beer!

This venue is truly a hidden treasure! Everything was so beautiful. The manager was quick to respond to my emails, there was always staff on-site to help me with questions, and you hVe options to have your wedding inside or outside. The only thing I wish they had was more preferred caterers but we went with Sparvim from Everyday Gourmet, her food was delicious and affordable!

It has been almost a month since my wedding and my guests are still talking about how beautiful the venue was, I will definitely be back!

We had a lovely wedding at the Redfield Estate at the Grove. The grounds were well maintained and everything was beautiful! The facility met all our needs, from getting dressed beforehand, to the ceremony in the gazebo and brunch in the estate. All our guests enjoyed the day...even the little ones who had plenty of room to explore. We highly recommend the Grove and its staff! Thank you for a perfect day!

My husband and I got married at Redfield Estate on April 12, 2014 and we had an excellent experience! This venue was absolutely beautiful, even in early April when the trees and flowers hadn't bloomed out. We worked a lot with Carol and Mary, and they were both very friendly, professional, and quick to return correspondence. The caretaker the day of was excellent too. He was there when we needed him, and out of the way when we didn't. You get use of the entire grounds for your event, which includes the house, the pavilion, a gazebo, and a large, beautiful yard. There is a fireplace in the house and in the pavilion that you can use as well, for a $50 charge. They rent the venue in 7 hour intervals, which should include set-up and tear-down time. We added an hour so that our rental went from 5:00 pm - 1:00 am, so that we could have our reception up until midnight. There is also a carriage house with a refrigerator that you can store your stuff in before and after the event. We had about 95 people at our wedding, and while the venue technically holds 125, about 100 is as much as will be comfortable if you have your whole event in the house. If you have everything in the pavilion, you can fit more. The venue had plenty of tables and chairs to accommodate our guests that were included in the cost of the rental. And speaking of the cost, this venue is VERY affordable, especially if you do your wedding in the "off season" like we did. There was an upfront damage deposit of $500, but after we got the deposit back our rental costs were well under $1500. Given how gorgeous the venue is and how little extra decoration it needs to make your wedding fairy-tale beautiful, you'll really get a bang for your buck with Redfield Estate! I would highly recommend it to anybody, our wedding there was like a dream!

There was an upfront damage deposit of $500, but after we got the deposit back our rental costs were well under $1500. Given how gorgeous the venue is and how little extra decoration it needs to make your wedding fairy-tale beautiful, you'll really get a bang for your buck with Redfield Estate! I would highly recommend it to anybody, our wedding there was like a dream! Read less

The Grove was gorgeous! We had a wonderful wedding ceremony while it downpoured, the Grove was very flexible though in waiting until an hour and a half before the ceremony to set up the chairs. We decided to set up the chairs below the pavillion as it was threatening to rain, and we had the grove turn on the fireplace, the ceremony itself was gorgeous and we loved the entire set-up. Good thing we used the pavillion, it poured rain during our vows and it drizzled the rest of the time. Everyone was safe from the rain, which of course let up after the ceremony. Thank you Grove for all your help! The Redfield Estate is mindblowing how beautiful it is, I have seen a few of my photos already and they are amazing, worthy of a bridal magazine! :)

We had our ceremony here and it was BEAUTIFUL. There were so many amazing places to take pictures and our guests loved the environment.

The value was great- we got married on a Friday afternoon and the price was definitely worth everything we received. It was so private, no random people walking around. We decided to get married in the pavilion, because of the convenience and in case of rain, but the gazebo and even the lawn would be beautiful as well.

Everyone we worked with was extremely helpful and prompt. Overall, we would definitely recommend this venue. It was the PERFECT place for our ceremony.

The Grove Redfield Estate was absolutely perfect from the first meeting until the last moment of the wedding
reception. The staff was so accommodating. The grounds looked superb and all of the facilities were impeccable! We were very pleased and would recommend The Grove Redfield Estate to anyone in any
part of the country. Our guests were from Australia, England and Japan as well as some local Chicago suburbs. Everyone had a lovely experience; we just could not have been more pleased.

I cannot rave enough about The Grove Redfield Estate. (And our wedding guests would say the same!) The Grove Redfield Estate was timely in communicating necessary details or questions, flexible in determining reservation times and helpful in working with us to determine the best use of space and utilities for our wedding ceremony and reception. Yes, we held both ceremony and reception at the Grove because the grounds and facilities were too perfect to do otherwise, and the convenience for guests and the price were unbeatable. We actually held our wedding on a weekday in order to use the Grove Redfield Estate (as the weekends in our time frame were booked up--I recommend booking quickly if you're interested!). The grounds are just beautiful and so well kept, and the house and paviliion need very little decorating to make them "presentable." All-in-all, the staff at the Grove is wonderful to work with, the value for your money is truly incredible, and the experience you will have there is a beautifully unique one. (And your guests will love it, too. We received so many compliments on the venue choice--though we can't take credit!) I wouldn't change anything about our decision to use the Grove for wedding ceremony and reception.

Absolutely beautiful setting for a wedding. There are white lights that come on at night on all the bushes and trees, and all the flowers in the urns around the property are well cared for. For the wedding there were a lot of options for where to hold the ceremony, we did ours in front of the pavilion, but you also have the oak tree, the gazebo, or even inside the house if it's a smaller wedding. Carol was very sweet and showed us around the property when we were making the decision about where to have the wedding, and she was very, very easy to get a hold of by phone and email when we needed to. She was very prompt with sending reminders about payments coming due as well, which was helpful with all the different payment due dates for different vendors. They also proactively notified us of the option to have fans available if the weather had been very hot, which it wasn't, but they did turn the fireplace in the pavilion on for us since the temps were a bit cooler. The Grove was a very beautiful and best of all UNIQUE location for our wedding!

I loved this venue. The staff are very helpful and friendly, Carol over there is so helpful and friendly. The grounds are well taken care of and the price is great (and you can use any caterer and bring in your own alcohol, which makes it even more of a bargain). The provided all the chairs and tables and the place is so pretty you need minimal decor! This place is best if your wedding is 100 people or less (I had 70, including brial party). It feels like it your own (more fabulous) home. I looked at 15 venues and this was by far the best bang for your buck, it was also probably the cheapest flat out especially since we did not need to rent a tent since you have the large grounds and the interior of the house! Stunning venue, amazing value!

We loved The Grove because it gave us so many different options for our wedding, whether we wanted an indoor or outdoor ceremony or reception or some combination. The grounds are lovely and well maintained, and you have access to all of them with just one rental fee. Carol was extremely helpful, answered all of our many questions before, and opened up the facility for us several times as we were making plans. We could not have asked for a nicer venue.

I cannot say enough wonderful things. We opted to marry on a Thursday which made the venue incredibly afforable. A few months before the wedding, we had a huge financial setback. Carol and Mary at the Grove were so supportive and did everything they could to accomodate our plan changes. We had food delivered and ended up setting up/tearing down all tables and chairs ourselves. We set our own centerpieces and brought our own dishes/silverware/tablecloths/napkins/etc. they showed my husband where everything goes and gave us full kitchen access. It was probably more worry for them, but they let us make our dream wedding happen. Deposit was received in a timely manner. Very flexible, very professional, and the dreamiest location. We got so many compliments on it.

I absolutely LOVE the Redfield estate! We had our wedding on a Thursday from 1pm to 12am. It was right within our budget. I love how secluded it was and how it was so different from a wedding at a banquet hall. It worked out so beautifully. It was a little hot for a May12th. Carol is great to work with. She was quick to respond to all my questions and concerns. She suggested and had contact information on most of our vendors. We were worried about the space but we had under 100 guest including kids and it was perfect I think anymore it would have been tight. All our guest were in AWE on how beautiful the place was! it felt like we were getting married at our own home. It was that comfortable! RECOMMENDED if you want an outside wedding with the feeling of comfort!

GORGEOUS!! PERFECT!!! Oh we LOVED our Redfield wedding! We had our ceremony in the east gazebo - the foliage was at its peak and two deer made an appearance during the ceremony! The grounds made for beautiful pictures and our guests was raving about the house - we heard endless "how did you find this place?!?" throughout the night. It also happened to be the least expensive rental available but it was by far the most beautiful. AND the money goes to support The Grove! Carol was really easy to work with - very quick to respond and she knew all of our vendors well. A word of warning: we were not aware that the 125 person limit included vendors and we heard from friends that had been at weddings there that it can be a tight space. We ended up with 94 adults and two kids and we were really comfortable. We had read in some reviews that the caretaker can be a bit difficult to work with during the event but our coordinator said he was a sweetheart. Overall, we were thrilled with our experience at Redfield!!! HIGHLY recommend!

If we had any changes to make or questions to ask leading up to the day of the wedding, they were very helpful and flexible with us. We never had a problem contacting anyone there. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and we couldn't be happier with our wedding day.

The Redfield House at The Grove was perfect for our wedding and reception. We had the ceremony outdoors at the gazebo. It rained in the morning and our ceremony was in the afternoon. The rain made everything so lush and green that the pictures came out beautifully. We had a musician with an electric keyboard and rented a mic/speaker system for a small fee. We added only two vases of flowers to the gazebo for a little color. The venue was wonderful. I was worried about the mosquitos, but they were not bad at all in the afternoon.

For our reception, we had a bar on the patio and dinner seating on the front lawn. Our buffet was inside along with desserts and the cake. We had a DJ in the loft and dancing inside. It worked out wonderfully and the staff made all the transitions with chairs, etc. completely seamless. We received so many compliments from all our guests who are from all over the country - and even Europe. We did put out insect repellent in a couple baskets for our guests to use, but I think only myself and a couple other women in sleeveless dresses used it.

One of the best things was that we used vendors that were familiar with The Grove and they figured out a lot of details for us. The fantastic coordination was a real blessing because my husband and I are both active duty military and live out of state. In fact, I was in Afghanistan during all the planning and came back to the U.S. 6 weeks before the wedding. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the beautiful setting and the expert service!

My other vendors were:

The Redfield Estate was the perfect setting for our autumn wedding--spacious enough to accommodate our 90 guests for ceremony and reception (with dancing), but small enough to provide a dining experience that was both elegant AND cozy. Carol was friendly and helpful but entirely professional from start to finish: enthusiastic about us and our wedding plans, patient and prompt in answering questions about the venue and recommending vendors. We chose a caterer from the Redfield's preferred list and, because they had worked there many times before, they were able easily to adjust initial plans [for outside cocktails] when the weather turned chilly that weekend. Not a problem . . . The decor and lighting of this beautifully restored prairie style "home" made our wedding truly an "enchanted evening" for us and our guests.

Beautiful! We booked the Grove from 9 till 4 on Saturday. The weather was perfect and so was the setting. We had the ceremony in front of the large Oak tree with the house as the backdrop. This worked better than one of the gazebos since I have a few elderly family members that could not walk very far. Carol and Mary were very helpful and very responsive to all of our inquires. My guests loved the place. We only had 55 guests and the perfect weather allowed our guests to sit inside or outside. This is the perfect place for small ceremonies. If you have a lot of guests and the weather is not perfect it will be tight. The Grove only allows certain caterers to work in their kitchen. They do have tastings which are very helpful in selecting a caterer.

Very helpful staff per planning. Very nice, helpful grounds person during event.
Beautiful space, inside and out. Perfect setting.

Only feedback: expensive but lovely setting.
Bathrooms weren't tended to well during reception, not kept as clean as would have expected/needed.

If ceremony is outside, recommend officiate use a mic. Our Rabbi did not; people could not hear well.

Otherwise, perfect!!
My vendors were wonderful.

We had our wedding at Redfield Grove in June and we were absolutely blown away by the venue. We wanted to make sure we used the house since it is so beautiful, so we set up the ceremony inside and had the reception outdoors in the pavilion. The house was gorgeous (would have booked the venue just for the bridal suite!) and it really felt intimate like a chapel. Also I have heard a lot of complaints that you can never hear when a wedding ceremony is outside so it was cool to flip it and have the ceremony indoors and reception outdoors. We luckily had great weather and all went smoothly. We sprung for the uplighting in the pavilion and lit the fire which really did provide some excellent photos and a great backdrop. Since we had never seen the venue at night before, it was lit up even better than we expected and there are so many photo opportunities around the ground that we could take our photos in less than an hour. Our only item to mention is that if you have the ceremony or reception indoors you really need to have a small wedding, we had 60 people and that was almost too tight. Also, we had the wedding on Friday (was considerably less) and on Friday's renting the venue for a few extra hours is really affordable so I would definitely recommend doing that so you have extra time to get ready and set up. Also you can bring in your own alcohol which is a great cost savings. I would say in general they were very flexible about dropping off everything in the carriage house the day before the wedding, but I felt rushed the day after because we had to pick up our decorations and alcohol by noon. All in all, would definitely recommend the venue!

Great site, perfect for a small-medium wedding. Staff was helpful and flexible. Be advised that there were quite a few mosquitoes that attended our wedding. It had just rained for two weeks and this was late spring. We bought candles to keep them out of the pavillion. We also rented two large fans from the grove. Having the ceremony in the woods was impossible this time of year.

Had a wonderful experience having my wedding at The Redfield Estate at The Grove. This venue is a hidden gem in the Chicagoland area. It's a gorgeous backdrop--your photos will look stunning whether they are taken inside the Redfield Estate or outside on the property. If you are getting married outside, I highly recommend a time of year when you can enjoy the greenery of the property. The trees, the flowers and the bright green grass were a stunning backdrop. The house lights up at night too--there are lights strung up on the trees all around the house. There are some limitations, i.e. no balloons, no sparklers, etc. because it is a nature preserve and those types of things aren't allowed on the premises. Also, you have to pick from their list of caterers or pay a bunch more to use an outside caterer (I guess this is fairly common). I found Carol and Mary to be very helpful and responsive and answered all of my questions, even when I felt I was being annoying. Thanks for a magical experience!

Carol at the Grove has been very responsive and helpful throughout our wedding planning process.
We added 2 hours to the standard 7-hr rental period after talking with our caterer and photographer, and she was very flexible and helpful with the changes.
To be honest though, I'm not sure how people manage to finish everything in 4.5 hours (7hr - 1hr clean up - 1.5hr set up). So I would definitely suggest renting the place for 9 hours if you want to have both the ceremony and reception here.
The Grove was also very accommodating for our ceremony rehearsal. I was an hour late to the rehearsal (due to some transportation issues) and John who was waiting for us at the property was super nice about it.

This venue was very beautiful, although it can be a little hard to find for some guests as the entrance into the grove is quite small. Our wedding was in early March and there was snow on the ground. Cold, but very romantic.

The only thing I didn't like too much about the place that if you're having the dinner reception indoors, the Great Room only fits a maximum of 52-56 guests. Around 24 more people can sit in the garden room. I felt bad though not having everyone together, since people in the garden room could not hear the toasts or see anything that is going on in the Great Room. This is not too big of a deal as long as guests don't mind it.
I think over 100 people can sit together outside when the weather is warm.

Overall, this was a unique and beautiful wedding venue. And everyone we encountered here were nice and easy to work with.

Our main contact was Carol and she was great! She always got back to us right away! The venue is gorgeous! The one thing is the building could've been cleaned a little better. We did arrive a little earlier than expected, but the caretaker was around so we could get in. That was nice since there was so much to do! The building wasn't built with sound in mind, so guests in the back room had trouble hearing music and announcements. If we had known, we would've made sure the dj was aware.

If we had to do it over, we'd totally book The Grove again!

The Grove's Redfield Estate is a gorgeous place to host your ceremony and reception. I absolutely loved it! The house and the grounds are very well-kept, and the house is beautifully restored. The garden surrounding the house always impresses me.

I had planned to have my dinner outside, but unfortunately it rained on my wedding day....that didn't matter though, the house was big enough to seat my 125 guests inside.

The woman in charge of weddings and booking is absolutely wonderful. She is friendly, professional, and was very prompt to respond to any questions i had. On many occasions, i would e-mail a question and i'd have a response within the hour!

i would highly recommend the The Grove for any Spring or Summer outdoor wedding. Beautiful and unique.

The Redfield Estate is a wonderful place to have a non-religious wedding ceremony!! My fiancé and I were having such a hard time finding a ceremony site that wasn't a church or a room at a banquet hall. You can also have your reception at the Redfield, but it was not big enough for our guest count. The new pavilion is absolutely gorgeous and I could not be happier with my decision. The house has such a charm and understated elegance that it is the perfect venue for a bride who wants a vintage, fairy tale, or shabby chic feel to her wedding. My husband and I got so many compliments for this site, everyone said they had never seen such an original and unique ceremony.

Beautiful venue. You will not regret having a wedding here and all of the people were great to work with. The only comment I would make is if you do a morning wedding, the window of time is really small. We had the venue from 9-4 and started our ceremony at 10:30. We found out during our wedding we really had to be out of there around 3:00. It made everything feel a lot more rushed and made the overall experience that much shorter. I would guess that people who do night weddings here do not feel that pressure as much.

The Grove is a WONDERFUL venue for any special event. The grounds are impeccably kept, and it is lovely any time of year. There is obviously great pride and ownership by those who run and maintain the estate. While we really just kept the event to the Pavilion, there are a number of lovely spots throughout the estate that could accommadate a variety of visual styles and tastes. My only two points of realistic drawbacks would be 1) it's a bit pricey--once you add in caterers, lighting, etc, it's quite pricey vs hosting the event at a hotel, where hall rental is not a separate charge; 2) there's unfortunately a max capacity of 125 for outdoor, 100 for indoor. It was a little stressful for us when we were inviting guests and confirming RSVPs.

We had booked the Grove for our Friday afternoon ceremony and I had hoped for an outdoor wedding at the gazebo in the woods. Mother Nature didn't cooperate, so everything was moved indoors to the Redfield Estate. It wound up being the perfect setting for our wedding after all. The rooms were GORGEOUS and made for the perfect place for photos.

I would highly recommend this place for the bride looking for a Friday/weekday wedding. The weekend costs are outrageous - but we only paid $300 for a fabulous setting for the wedding. Plus, they provided all the chairs we needed.

You'll need to bring your own PA system and microphone stand, however.

We used the Redfield Estate for our ceremony and I instantly fell in love with it. It was the first out of 30 different venues we VISITED, yes visited... I was very determined to find a special place. Its a bit pricey, but it was everything I wanted. I just wish they would provide services within that price to set up chairs etc. having to outsource those can get a bit pricey. All in all very beautiful place and nice to have use of the house also. They should think of expanding the house so more people can be there - 100 is limit... I would have had my reception there if more people could/ more was included in price.

Beautiful for outdoor weddings! Absolutely gorgeous. Point person (Carol) was very helpful before the wedding with questions, etc. The night of, the caretaker was somewhat rude to my guests towards the end of the night because our transportation was running late.
