We had a spectacular wedding at the Glen Rowan House last week. The event coordinator, Faye Kelly made our every dream come true. She was an amazing resource, very quick to respond to even the most minor questions, and is simply lovely to work with. We had a small black tie optional wedding for 28 guests and served an elegant, seated dinner. Jim Kerrigan, caterer, did a great job of serving prime rib very, very rare, just as requested. Our vegen nephew enjoyed a specially prepared meal. Not a single concern or opportunity for improvement. The setting itself is rich and elegant, requiring limited additional decor. Faye and Jim, you made our dreams come true.

We held our ceremony at the Lily Reid Holt Memorial Chapel which is managed by the same people who manage the Glen Rowan House. The chapel is beautiful, with large a Louis Tiffany stained glass window. The chapel holds about 210 people, so it is great for a more intimate wedding. We didn't have a home church in the area, we had a hard time finding a church that would let us be married there without being a member. We loved having our ceremony at the Lily Reid Holt Memorial Chapel and I would highly recommend this chapel.

We had our wedding ceremony in the Lily Reid Holt Memorial Chapel at Lake Forest College. The surrounding area is beautiful and the chapel itself is very nice. We actually chose this venue, primarily based on the fact that the chapel allows dogs to be inside and be a part of the wedding. So we had our two dogs walk down the aisle, and it was quite memorable.

I think the only issue we had with the chapel is that the cost to rent the chapel is a little bit expensive, and you can only rent in two hour blocks. We were able to negotiate a three hour window so that helped a lot. But our advice to anyone else considering this location is to just make sure you have sufficient time for 1) setup prior to the ceremony, 2) the actual ceremony itself, and 3) taking pictures afterwards.

Our contact person was very nice and helpful. They were able to accomodate our special requests, such as arrangement of the chair and stage layout, etc. Overall, we loved the location and were very happy to have selected it as the place for our wedding.
