I can't say enough amazing things about Makray! Jaci, Laurie and Lynda were all so wonderful to work with throughout the planning process. Jaci and Laurie were easily accessible via phone or email, very helpful in working within our budget but still getting us exactly what we wanted for our wedding day. I even threw a few curve balls at them (like creating my own wedding archway and had to put it together on site) and they were very flexible and helpful in helping all the details come together. Even last minute changes they took in stride and never made us feel like it was inconvenient or stressful on their end which made our last few weeks of wedding planning/details that much easier.

The food was INCREDIBLE! We were amazed at our tasting and my husband who is a chef himself, had a hard time narrowing down options for the menu. On our wedding day, we were a little nervous if they could reproduce our delicious food 190 times over but it was done to perfection and all our guests couldn't stop raving about how delicious all the food was between our meat course (we couldn't pick one so the combo chicken and steak was a big hit!) the vegetarian option and they were VERY diligent with our guests with food allergies. It was greatly appreciated and we definitely made a point to eat our dinners.

The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous, the ballroom is spacious but intimate with its lower ceiling and wood paneling (you dont feel lost in the giant, high ceiling ballrooms) and with windows 180 degrees around the room over looking the golf course, you can't have a bad view. It was also wonderful to have a venue that we were the only wedding so the staff was 100% focused on our guests and our needs that day. We even got to go out on the golf carts and take pictures around the golf course which was so much fun and unexpected for our wedding day - definitely fun memories!

Overall, give 6/5 stars because they are the best and if you live in NW Suburbs, book with them!!

Great staff and beautiful venue! I am so glad we picked Makray for our wedding. The staff was extremely helpful throughout the entire planning process. They answered all of my many questions quickly and helped me make an decisions I wasn't sure about. On the day of my wedding I did not have a thing go wrong. I really was able to let the staff do their job and they did it perfectly. My wedding was so beautiful and flowed smoothly. I loved working with Laurie, she was so calm that there was not way I could have stressed out. My favorite parts of the venue were: - You are the only wedding that day - The venue is absolutely beautiful inside and outside - You and your bridal party had some amazing locations on the golf course for photos - The terrace is great for guests who want to take a break outside - You have a private bridal suite with your own bathroom - The food is great! (Guests loved everything)

We had our wedding this past weekend at Makray. It was a wonderful experience and it was more than we could have ever dreamed of. Jaci, Lynda, and Laurie helped make this day a day we will never forget. The staff was more than helpful and the setup was gorgeous. The chef is fantastic and we received compliments all night long about the food. I highly recommend this venue for both the ceremony and reception. They are wonderful and truly made us beyond happy with everthing.

I recently had both my ceremony and reception at Makray and could not have asked for a better or more beautiful venue! I received so many compliments about the gorgeous setting and amazing food. Guests also commented on how attentive the staff was to their dietary restrictions and food allergies. The staff--Jaci, Laurie, and Lynda--were great to work with and so responsive. I didn't have to worry about a thing and was able to just enjoy my day. I'm so happy that I picked Makray!

Jaci, Laurie and Lynda made the wedding process so easy! My husband and I were so excited when we saw Makray and met with Jaci when we were searching for venues - we knew we wanted to get married there because Jaci was so friendly and warm and knew exactly how to explain things to us! Ever since that first day, we were in such good hands! We had the best day ever- food was amazing, I didn't worry about a single thing and everyone had a fun time! We can't wait to come back for anniversary dinners :)

Our wedding was amazing and I owe that to the ladies from Makray. From the moment we started working with the wedding team, I knew we made the right choice. The team was extremely responsive, available, organized, flexible and always so nice. All of our guests loved the venue, food and beverage service. I can't thank the team enough for all of their hard work to make our day beautiful. I didn't have to worry about a thing, and that is what every bride wants on her wedding day!!!

We had the best experience using the Makray as our wedding venue. Laurie, Jaci, and Lynda were so kind and thoughtful and very quick with responding to my hundreds (kidding) of emails. The day of our wedding, they were all there making sure everything went smoothly. Highly recommend this venue for anyone searching for a perfect scenic golf course.

The staff at Makray made our wedding truly amazing, the day could not have been more perfect. The team is super professional and accommodating. It is clear to see why they have so many weddings booked here, it is a top notch venue and the staff is top tier as well! From early on they helped walk us through much of the necessary planning, and remained there assisting us as much as we needed throughout the process. Additionally they provided great vendor recommendations. We checked out a number of vendors and ultimately decided to use Makray's recommendations because they truly were the best. Having vendors that know the facility and work weddings there regularly made the ease of preparation that much better, especially the photographer! (Something Blue Photography) The food at Makray was exquisite as well, we are still getting compliments on the food, the venue and the whole experience well after the wedding date. We highly recommend Makray!
