My husband and I held our wedding reception here on 9/23/17. We both live out of state, so I was very worried about planning a wedding from so far away. I am beyond grateful that we chose the Arboretum Club! Chris and Nicole were both so helpful the entire year leading up to the big day. They both were so responsive via phone and email and dealt with all of our millions of questions (from me and my mother)! They even planned the tasting around our schedule as much as they could, which we really appreciated. The venue is beautiful and we heard so many compliments about the food from our guests. There is a room right next to the dining room that was perfect for cocktail hour, and even had outdoor access overlooking the golf course. They even played a DVD with pictures of my husband and I behind the bar. Nicole worked our wedding reception the night of, and she did an amazing job. She was very attentive to my (and my mothers and husbands) needs all night. The reception went so smoothly, no issues at all! Going on the golf course to take pictures was really nice also (only bride and groom). The private bridal suite was amazing, it had a little room with a couch and a large private bathroom attached, it was perfect for holding the wedding gifts and bridal parties bags. I didn't realize how much I would appreciate that bridal suite, it was perfect for doing the bustle on my dress in private. My husband held the key, so only we had access to that room. Nicole worked with us ahead of time arranging the dining room and head table to what we wanted, which was not the traditional straight-across head table. It worked out perfectly and the dance floor is a really good size. This venue is also very reasonably priced. We searched for a while of different venues in the area and compared pricing; and for what we received, the Arboretum was the best bang for our buck. Our reception was absolutely perfect! I highly recommend!!!

Chris and her team do a great job of keeping communication open during the planning process. They were very accommodating and very flexible working with me with only 3 months to plan for a wedding of 85. This venue is very clean, warm and inviting and a great value for those looking to find an upscale venue at a reasonable price. We held both our ceremony and reception and I was extremely impressed by how quickly the staff worked to change up the rooms. Very professional!

When I started thinking about planning my wedding, I knew it had to be back in my home state of Illinois. I knew it would be difficult to plan a wedding from 1,000 miles away, but I thought if I could find the right vendors I would be up for the challenge. Enter Chris and Sarah. From the MINUTE we met Chris, I knew she was the one. Her energy level and passion for her work was evident. I told her that we were from out of town and we were nervous about planning from so far away. The very first thing she said to me was "Oh, don't even worry! It won't be a problem!" My husband and I had a long engagement, which meant a lot of planning and emails back and forth with Chris. She took the time to answer all of my questions, both big and small and was nothing but accommodating through the entire journey. The day of our wedding it was forecasted to be sunny. Surprise, surprise it rained. I was devastated (for maybe 2 minutes), but Chris and her staff did everything in their power to transform the reception space into a wonderful ceremony location. Everything went off without a hitch (minus the weather) and it is all because of Chris and her amazing staff at The Arboretum Club. They are simply the best!

My daughter was married a little over a month ago at the Arboretum Club in Buffalo Grove, IL. From our first conversation with Chris to the day of the wedding details handled by Sarah, the entire planning process with these two people was fun and virtually stress free. No matter how many times we called or emailed, no matter how many questions we asked, everything was handled quickly and efficiently. The food was delicious, the staff friendly and helpful, and our event went off without a hitch. They were a pleasure to work with and I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone who wants a positive experience in planning a major event.

The Arboretum Club was the perfect venue for our wedding. Chris and Sarah were great to work with and were very responsive every step of the way. They helped coordinate everything on the night of the wedding so we could just relax and enjoy. The layout was perfect with an area for cocktail hour, spacious room for the reception, and outdoor space with a few extra tables. The food, drinks, and hors d'oeuvres were incredible. The packages were very reasonably priced compared to local alternatives. Our wedding ended up exactly how we wanted it and we can't recommend the Arboretum Club highly enough!

My wife and I had our wedding reception here back in May. They were truly amazing! Our initial meeting with them was a breath of fresh air after interviewing so many other places. They showed a real willingness to work with us to make sure that we had the wedding reception that we wanted on the budget that we had. Chris and Sarah were always excited to see us and to discuss our reception. They were always so patient with us and gave us honest answers and advice when we needed it. They were so amazing and helpful that you would have thought that it was a member of their own family that was getting married. The golf course here provided a lovely and perfect back drop for our wedding pictures. The food was amazing and our wedding cake was beautiful and delicious. The staff was always courteous to all of our guests. German, the banquet manager, did a great job of making sure that we were happy throughout our entire reception. My wife and I had very high expectations for our reception and The Arboretum Club did an excellent job of exceeding our expectations!

Chris is amazing. She was very responsive to my hundreds of questions. She made sure that the day went by without any problems. My pens I brought for the guestbook didn't work and she quickly came back with sharpies for me. The food is also very good. The outside ceremony is beautiful and the inside is great as well.

My husband and I hosted a wedding reception for our son and his wife at the Arboretum Club, and could not have been more pleased with how it turned out. In planning the event, we worked with Allie, who was extremely personable, and bent over backwards to be flexible, helpful, and ensure that it was a fabulous evening. When we arrived the night of the reception, Chris (Allie's boss) was there to greet us and make sure everything met our expectations before turning us over to Herman, who stayed with us throughout the evening to coordinate and keep everything running smoothly. Every aspect of the reception exceeded our expectations and that of our guests, who were quite complimentary. The room was beautifully setup, every entree was delicious and cooked perfectly, and the staff was incredibly helpful and responsive to our needs. It simply could not have been better. Our sincerest thanks to you and your staff for making Britton & Heather’s reception a truly fabulous and memorable event!

I highly recommend having your next event at the Arboretum Club! My husband and I just got married there on July 3rd and everything went perfectly! We were extremely impressed with the Arboretum from the first meeting all the way through the wedding day! We worked with Chris and Allie. Both women were extremely friendly and accommodating. They were good listeners and always made us feel very special. We were offered a 20% discount for getting married on a Friday which was very helpful for the budget! The space is beautiful and our guests loved having the option of an outdoor cocktail hour! On the day of the wedding we we took pictures in a beautiful location on the golf course with bridges, trees, and a pond! Very nice! The reception space was large and had floor to ceiling windows overlooking the course. Our guests loved the food (lots of compliments on the skewers and salmon) and had a blast! The Arboretum Club was a great choice for us! It was affordable, close to hotels that shuttle for our guests, had great customer service, and was beautiful! We recommend it to anyone!!

Everyone at The Arboretum Club in Buffalo Grove was a pure joy to work with. They helped me make our wedding day exactly how we wanted it. We changed little things here and there and they were nothing but accommodating. The food is excellent. One of our guests told us they had the best champagne he ever had. The room is beautiful with the wall of windows. Chris helped me through everything, especially the day of the wedding, when we had to change lots of parts of the plan. She made everything work and kept my stress level low! She, Allie, German and Tracy all helped make our day as much fun as it was. The room, cake, food plates, drinks, ambiance, patio, EVERYTHING was beautiful! I would throw another party there in a heartbeat! Thank you to everyone at The Arboretum Club! ~Kristin & Jake

I worked with Chris for my wedding, and she went OVER AND BEYOND my wildest expectations. She was responsive, patient, knowledgeable, and kind. Our wedding went off without a hitch. German and Chris helped us out that night and it was the most spectacular wedding because of them. From the food to the décor to the outdoor ceremony, they helped us with each and every detail and question we had, which made wedding planning a lot easier. I would recommend Chris at the Arboretum Club over and over. You won't be disappointed!

We couldn't have asked for a better wedding at the arboretum club. Everything went perfect, the place looked amazing, and our wedding went off with almost no problems. We had our ceremony at the venue as well and the way they transformed the room was amazing. We were so glad we went with the chair covers. During the ceremony they really made the room look great. During the rehearsal, my mom was really worried about the way the room looked, (especially since the florist hadn't done anything yet) but she walked into the room the day of the wedding beforehand and was very impressed. We worked with Chris mostly prior to our wedding and she was very according, super helpful, always willing to answer questions whenever we had issues. We had an issue with our florists not returning our calls about a month out and Chris got on the phone immediately and called the florist telling them they need to call the bride and settle things. During the wedding weekend, Allie helped us with running the show and she was wonderful. She was always there when we needed her and extremely helpful during the rehearsal since we realized a few things we forgot about in terms of how it was going to work the next day. We didn't interact with him a ton, but the head chef German was just as amazing as the rest. Later in the evening of our wedding day, there were a few questions I needed to ask/things to take care of and he was more than accommodating. The actual room looked spectacular with the up lighting and the ceiling drapery. It is definitely worth it to spend the extra money for that. I would recommend the Arboretum club for a wedding to anyone. Everyone we talked to after our wedding couldn't complement us enough on it. The food was spectacular, they had a great time, and said it was one of the best weddings they had attended. I believe we got the chicken and the roast sirloin. People were saying the beef was phenomenal. A++++. Such an amazing place!
