Working with Taylor at Cantigny made our wedding day easy and relaxing (even if it was 100 degrees outside on the first day of fall!). They are accommodating and amazing!

My fiancé, Joe, and I looked at MANY places before finally deciding on Cantigny to host our wedding reception this past May. We spent lots of weekends driving around, touring places and meeting with representatives from our list of possibilities. We found some too big, some too small but when we saw the Red Oak Room at Cantigny Golf Club, well, like Goldilocks said, "It was just right". While much of our research was done in the cool, barren fall months, we knew the view of the golf course would be spectacular once the grounds got doused with the spring rains. The windows are plenty and the adjacent outdoor patio would serve not only as a scenic spot for our ceremony, but also a place for our guests who wanted to take their drinks outside to a high table and get some night air. After meeting with Karen to go over the details and see how the room might lay out, we booked it! This was a leap of faith because at that time, we hadn't yet tried the food for ourselves - just trusted the reviews on this very website! Thanks to everyone who shares honest posts here because you didn't steer us wrong! We did attend the bridal expo, and it was difficult to narrow down our appetizer selections because they were all so good. However, we made our picks and scheduled a tasting. Here's where we were thrown a curve ball. Shortly before our tasting day, we were informed that Karen would no longer be working at Cantigny. And we've now invested months with her, going over the countless details and sharing e-mails that discussed everything from linen options to where our DJ would set up. At this late date, we were nervous. Taking her place would be Sara Cash, the new catering manager. We arrived at Cantigny on our scheduled tasting day and Sara stunned us from that very first introduction. No slight to Karen as everyone has different styles and personalities, but Sara impressed us with her warmth and friendliness; SEE MY NEXT POST COULDN'T FIT IT ALL IN ONE POST

Service, food and planning with Bryanne and Daphne was seamless and easy. I truly could not have asked for more. The food was outstanding. My Dad said it was the best he's ever had at a wedding. The staff was attentive throughout the evening. Bryanne was very responsive to my (many) questions throughout the planning period. I couldn't have asked for more. When you first visit Le Jardin (the venue we chose), you might not love the ambiance. The bar and Bertie's (the cafe off of the main room) need a little makeover. We decided to make it prettier. If you can fit Chivari chairs into the budget, do it. What an elegant look it added. We made a huge bar menu sign and placed it in front of a pass-thru window behind the bar. It covered up the window beautifully. Lots of candles and flowers, etc. on the bar counter helped. It really ended up looking very nice. The sign looked like it belonged back there. Bertie's needed a little help, also. Cantigny has a floor to ceiling curtain that covers the counter area. It works well, and hides the area you don't want guests to see. We also had hi-boys and regular tables with linens on them to dress up the area. It was football season, so we turned on the tv's during cocktail hour. That was a big hit. If you can turn on the fireplace, do it! How pretty it was. With a little imagination, you can turn that room into anything you envision. My chair lady said it was one of the prettiest receptions that she's ever seen, and she's seen alot. I was a little nervous about the whole event, but that was a waste of time. I would choose Le Jardin again in a second!

Cantigny was the better than I could have imagined. First of all, the venue is absolutely beautiful. We rented out Dairyman's Cottage (the bridal cottage) to get ready and it was so lovely. A perfect cottage with more than enough room to spend the day. My bridesmaids, mom, and mother in law all got ready here using our hair and makeup crew, and the groomsmen and dads came in after some photos to relax and cool off as well (I was upstairs though, to avoid having my groom seeing me!). A tram picked us up and took us to the ceremony when it was time to go. Our ceremony site was the South Grove. This is the most shaded site, and our guests were never hot during our August wedding, because the entire ceremony was in the shade (ceremony began at 5:30)! It was absolutely perfect. We got married under a flower arch which was beautiful with the canopy of green trees as a backdrop. Then, the cocktail hour and reception were literally only a few steps away. Guests LOVED that. It's the closest ceremony site to Le Jardin. Cocktail hour was incredible, the decorations were beautiful, and Cantigy does so much of the work so it really makes it easy on the bride/groom and the families. Everything is included in your package, so it's so stress-free since you don't have to worry about different caterers, bakeries, etc. The bar service was incredible, the wait staff was top notch, and the day really was perfect. We worked with Daphne for the whole process, and she was incredible. Thank you Cantigy for the most wonderful wedding!

Cantigny hosted our wedding ceremony and reception. It is a beautiful place. We got married on the East Lawn. Karen Elmore helped us with our wedding and did a fantastic job. She was prompt and did whatever she could to make sure our wedding day was perfect. Our guests loved the ceremony and reception areas. It was a huge hit!

I couldn't have been happier with the way the wedding and reception turned out! Even though we ended up getting rained out of the Rose Garden, Karen and Cantigny did an amazing job of moving the wedding into the balcony off the Red Oak room (even though it only started raining about 45minutes before the ceremony) and we had endless compliments on this location! They did a great job working with us to make everything perfect and we really appreciated all the work they put into it! The food and cake were delicious and the setting was excellent!

The staff here were absolutely the most caring and helpful staff at any wedding venue I have witnessed. They made sure the day was as special as it could be for my best friend and his new wife. The military history pieces such as tanks made for great pictures. The architecture gave us all a sense of peace and humility.

Cantigny absolutely bent over backwards to help us plan our special day! We had a two bride wedding, which was a first for Cantigny. We felt comfortable, welcome and respected. Karen Elmore was amazing and very responsive to our needs. She was timely in her email and phone communications. Mike, the catering manager was also fantastic! The food was excellent and we would highly recommend Cantigny to anyone!

We had our reception at Le Jardin, the banquet room in the visitor center. Daphne and Rebecca were very helpful planning the details of the evening, and responded promptly to our emails and phone calls. They both had helpful suggestions for the schedule during the reception and for food choices. The space is beautiful, the food was delicious, and the staff was helpful and professional. The staff set aside hors d'oeuvres for us since we had pictures during the cocktail hour, and the waiters were very attentive to the bride and groom all evening.

We give 5 stars quality for the reception we had for our daughter's wedding in Cantigny Golf. The service is excellent!!!! We are so happy to be able to have the flexibility provided by Cantigny Golf for our daughter's reception. The food is superb!!!! They are very accomodating to all our requests including pureeing foods for my elderly father. However, at the rehearsal in the Rose Garden, we were not provided with any tech person for the wedding ceremony. So, as might be expected, thing did not go very well as it should have in the wedding ceremony. But we are totally satisfied with the reception part at the Club House. Thank you very much, Karen and your staff, for all your help. You make our daughter's special day very memorable.
