I'm not going to lie, this place is expensive! However, everyone is extremely professional and helpful. If you are looking for a classy, intimate venue that reflects your personality do not skip at least seeing the PHM. I did not hear a single complaint from any of my guests about the food or the service. Im fact, my guests were very impressed with several of the wait staff. And special attention was paid to the bridal party!

We can't begin to explain how happy we are with the service and the accommodations that we received from Patrick Haley mansion!! Tracy was very helpful to us and was such a pleasure to work with throughout the planning process! We keep hearing from our guests that our wedding was "the best they have every been to" and we have the mansion to thank for that. Everything from the fluidity of the evening to the food was exquisite!!

I couldn't be happier that we picked The Patrick C. Haley Mansion for our wedding! The grounds were beautiful, in bloom, and well kept up. The food was amazing and any of our guests who had allergies and needed special prep on their food, received it. Everything and everyone was very efficient and professional. There was a server named Cory who was always ready to grab anything my husband and I needed. We loved him! Sarita was fantastic at keeping everything organized. I highly recommend The Patrick C. Haley Mansion to anyone looking for a wedding location with beautiful grounds, an amazing mansion, and fantastic food!

The Patrick Haley Mansion is BEAUTIFUL!! My ceremony turned out great in the courtyard! For my wedding the servers were spot on throughout the night. The food was great and hot!! My only complaint would be that it is pricey and they are fairly inflexible with requests without charging extra.

My husband and I both knew the Patrick Haley Mansion was "the one" right when we saw it. We are so happy we got married there and loved everything about it! Jan at PHM was soooo wonderful to work with and on top of everything and so organized! We had our ceremony outside at the PHM and it couldn't have been more breath-taking. For our reception, everything went so perfect! The food was delicious and hot! The servers and staff were outstanding and so attentive. The mansion is just drop dead gorgeous and we got so many compliments from our guests. I cannot say enough good things about the PHM. They really made my wedding a fairy tale come true!

Our May wedding at PHM was absolutely beautiful! We heard nothing but positive feedback from our guest about the look of the mansion, the deliciousness of the food, and the professionalism and attentiveness of the service staff. We couldn't agree more!

There are several reasons for the less-than-stellar review. They are used to doing things their way, and seemed reluctant to work with our wedding planner or accommodate unique requests. We had the unusual request to have bacon available for our chocolate fountain (don't knock it till you've tried it!). Initially we were told this wouldn't be a problem, only to find out on wedding day that they couldn't do it (something about health codes). Luckily, our 5-star planner found a compromise. Health codes are health codes, but it would have been nice to know ahead of time.

By far the most frustrating thing was finding out that their 250 guest count minimum would not be translated into a dollar amount food/bev minimum (virtually unheard of in the wedding industry). So when our guest count unexpectedly fell far short of 250, they would not allow us to add extras to make up the difference. Instead, we were required to pay for 250 entrees and beverage packages. To their credit, they tried to soften the blow a bit by giving us the VIP bar at the premium price and having us only pay for our sweet table, late night snack and hors d'oeuvres for the actual 180 guests rather than 250. However, this in no way made up for this ridiculous requirement. Yes, the contract says there is a minimum of 250 entree/beverage packages required, but as we pointed out to them, our 180 guests with all the extras we ordered would make them more money than 250 guests with the bare minimum. Long story short: buyer beware.

I had my reception at PHM and I was so glad that I did. People are still talking about how beautiful my reception was 3 weeks after my event. The food was hot when it was served and very tasty (I had the chicken saltembucco and tri-colored pasta) and the service throughout the entire experience was impeccable. While we had a few small hiccups (them emailing me asking if I choose my venue when I had booked with them a month before) everything was as I had dreamed it would be.

They do label and organize all the items you bring and put it out for you the day of the wedding. I did my own fresh flowers and they even offered to prune any leaves that might have needed pruning.This service allowed me to have a personalized wedding with all my DIY's I wanted without all the stress of how I was going to put it all up!

I would def. order your cake through the company they go with. It was great and they took my picture of a cake I liked on pinterest and made it nearly identical to the picture.

Both Barb and Jane were amazing women to work with. thank you for everything!

We had our wedding here in December. After looking at all of the different venues, this was the one that made both the bride and myself look at each other and say "this is the one." During our year between putting down our deposit and the wedding day, we only had good experiences with the mansion. All of our guest were very impressed with the food, service, and the overall appearance of the venue (all thinking it was at least 5 thousand dollars more than it actually was!)

For someone looking for a wedding in the Chicagoland area, the price of the mansion is worth it. For all of the places we looked at, it was the best value, for all that you get (which is an entire mansion!)

The only cons that I would list would be some of the financial transactions towards the end. There was a miscalculation of the number, which went up slightly on us, and we were unable to get reimbursed for the second cashiers check that we had to get.
