Events at Independence Grove makes for a beautiful wedding venue for those looking to tie the knot in Chicagoland.

For inspiration to plan your special day, let’s take a look at two beautiful outdoor weddings we hosted recently at North Bay Pavilion:

John & Denise’s Wedding

In perfect wedding tradition, John and Denise  joined their friends and family together for a beautiful evening of celebration. A short ceremony was held by the lake, followed by cocktails, a buffet dinner, delicious desserts, and of course—dancing. Not to distract from the natural allure of the outdoor setting, their simple and traditional elements set the tone and mood for this fun and lovely wedding. Their dinner choices were Catering by Michaels’ take on their favorites:  seafood for her and steak for him!  The North Bay Pavilion was honored to be a part of their journey toward the next chapter of their lives together.

David & Jillian’s Wedding

After a site visit many months ago, David and Jillian decided to work with Events at Independence grove on the spot. Though they both live in California, they decided on this venue as a perfect in-between for their cherished local family and faraway friends. We were obsessed with their stylistic choices—blue gingham linens and wildflowers that paired perfectly with the bucolic nature of this space. Catering by Michaels catered an outdoor-style BBQ with thoughtful buffet options, so that there was something for every taste!  Then – dancing, drinks, and more dancing!
