On the happiest day of your life, let our professional consultants, knowledgeable staff, and executive chef do what they do best: make your wedding day carefree and unforgettable.



Share your dreams with us, and we’ll start making them come true. A few questions will get us on our way.

How many guests will you invite? The Falls offers three different banquet rooms, which may be used alone or combined, accommodating up to 550 guests with ease. Whether your dream is an intimate dinner for friends and family or a lavish gala for everyone in town, our sterling service helps set the tone.

The Falls - Columbia, IL was the destination of our April 2016 ceremony and reception :) Everything was top-notch: the food, the service, the DJ, and the venue! We were extremely pleased! Our guests truly enjoyed themselves and have had so many nice things to say about our magical day. Ashley was a superb coordinator from the initial planning in September 2015 until the very last moment the day of. She helped set-up the decor, manage the vendors, and organize the day - I can't say enough great things about her. I would highly recommend this venue for your wedding day! No need to search for a DJ or lighting specialist - these services are offered there as well!

Had our wedding and reception at The Falls, the most wonderful experience! Everything was perfect! Food was amazing, service was on top of everything, and the music was top notch! We started out not knowing where to begin or plan, Ashley had it all figured out for us! We had the most amazing time!

I couldn't have asked for a better place for our wedding! From the start, Kip and Ashley were very helpful. The Falls was already one of our top places but at our first meeting, we were sold! I felt we got great value moneywise, but especially convenience wise as well! They take care of everything for you. Ashley was always there to answer any questions and help us through the process of getting ready for a wedding. We were allowed to get into the bridal suite early the day of, drop off our items for ceremony and reception a few days beforehand and they also worked out a payment plan for us (monthly). The day of she made sure everything ran smoothly, walked us through a quick rehearsal, and had everything set up just the way we wanted it. The entire staff the whole evening was friendly and helpful. Big shoutout to Ashley and Brad for last minute changing our schedule a bit and announcing us into the reception earlier than planned - that meant a lot to me for extra time with family and friends at the reception! We got many compliments from family on everything, and I know some family members even sought out staff to tell them how awesome they were.
The food was amazing! I am still hearing compliments about the chicken (Alice Springs chicken) and the garlic potatoes!

The Falls package also included their DJ TopCats - Brad was fantastic! He was so helpful and the biggest sweetheart. He was always available and prompt answering emails and made sure our music and special requests were perfect. We had a very special request for our first dance, to put some audio into the track, and he was very accommodating and even sent us a copy of the song for us to keep. One of my guests even told me he had a fantastic speaking/emcee voice! The whole night our families were saying how good the DJ was, and my cousin from California even wished he would come out there to do her upcoming wedding!

The Falls staff was so wonderful! We knew we wanted to book The Falls the first time we walked through. They supplied so much and helped us with all our requests. Everything was reasonably priced. The food was delicious. I couldn't have dreamed of anything better! It was absolutely perfect!! Ashley was so helpful and always responded to my constant emails right away! They were available to get in touch with all the time. I couldn't have dreamed of a better venue. I wish I could go back and relive the whole night again!

I cannot express how incredibly delightful it was to work with everyone at The Falls! I originally called because I'd had some sticker shock from another venue. I spoke with Brad and his attempt to describe the beauty of the outdoor waterfall sold me immediately. They sent us a contract by the end of the day. We visited later that month and booked our date! Some people talk about how pricey a wedding is at The Falls, but I honestly think it's an amazing value and I had no problem paying for convenience. I had stated early on that I didn't care about chair covers with bows and since they rent those, they were able to take that off our package price. The DJ (Top Cats) was included in our package and a shuttle was available to the Hampton Inn down the road for a small fee. Guests talked about how the shuttle was incredibly convenient! Although we rented our centerpieces from somewhere else, they had centerpieces we could have used for free or rent some from them. The food was absolutely amazing! I didn't quite finish all of my dinner because I was a bit overwhelmed by the whole day and I completely regret it! We had our ceremony outside by the waterfall. We were able to do pictures there beforehand and we had the area for the rest of the evening. It was so nice to have a private space to escape to for some fresh air throughout the night! I don't recall there being any problems at all and even if there had been, I know that they would have taken care of it immediately. They honestly have thought of everything! There were a couple of times when the way they typically did things didn't quite mesh with my vision, but because of all of their experience, they always had good reasons why their way made sense and I was totally on board. We got so many compliments throughout the night and after the wedding about how fun and wonderful the whole night was. My husband and I had such an amazing time we're planning to have a 5 year anniversary party there! I cannot recommend them mo

My husband and I got married at The Falls in April 2014. Two months out and we are still hearing how great our wedding and reception was!! I could not have asked for a better place to have made those special memories! Ashley and Brad were/are outstanding!!! The venue is not only beautiful but they were flexible with meeting times, and just overall Amazing! Dustin and I were engaged for a year and a half and once we booked our venue, I had little to no stress knowing that we were going to be taken care of. The one thing that I thought I was going to have a problem with was being able to set up a time to meet with Ash and Brad because both Dustin and I work all the time, but we had NO issues. Ash was very professional and always kept in touch with us by email, phone, and making special times we were able to meet. The best part about this venue is that it is all inclusive and all we really had to do is get the cake. We booked the photographer and photo booth through Creative Images which is the in house choice! Again they were AMAZING!! Overall the food, service, and professionalism won us over! I really could not have asked for a better group to take care and get us ready for our special day!! I would definitely go back to do other events! Again Thank you so much Ash and Brad, Dustin and I appreciate everything you did to make our night AWESOME!!!
