We picked Cantigny because we wanted the reception and ceremony in the same location. We held the ceremony inside with a string trio and then had the reception in the new Le Jardin restaurant / room. Everything was perfect! Magan and her staff were a pleasure to work with! The venue is beautiful and the service was amazing! All of our guests commented on the quality of the food and the cake! The table set up was perfect and any recommendations Magan made were right on! The servers were responsive to any of the guests' needs and made sure that all of our guests were taken care of. We would definitely recommend Cantigny Park!

My husband and I live in the city and wanted to get married there, but couldn't afford the prices. I was really bummed until we visited Cantigny. It was absolutely beautiful and reasonably priced. We chose to have the ceremony at the park in the rose garden and the reception at the Red Oak Room at the golf course. Unfortunately, mother nature had other plans. We had to decide hours before the ceremony whether to move it inside due to looming rain clouds. The coordinator, Karen, was really helpful and steered us toward the right decision. We didn't have time to get everything to the patio at the Red Oak Room, but we were able to move it inside in the visitors center at the park. I had never spent much time in the visitors center and was a little concerned about what it would look like. Fortunately, it was perfect. The room was decorated very nicely and the coordinator there (Megan, who I had never met) worked tirelessly to make everything happen. We were very happy with how everything turned out. Megan was also really helpful in taking care of a crying flower girl. The reception was equally great. Although it was raining, we had great views of the golf course, wonderful covered patio, and a beautiful room. I probably asked Karen a million questions over the many months of planning and she was very patient and responsive. Her answer to everything was "we'll make it happen." It really took a lot of stress away. I attended the once a year food tasting and wasn't very impressed. It tasted like generic wedding food. Again, Cantigny came through. The food was fantastic. We got rave reviews from the guests - everything from the soup to the 10:30pm sundae bar was a hit. I would also like to thank the staff. They were courteous, helpful, professional, and a pleasure to work with. We would also like to thank Pete the bartender for making us some seriously great margaritas for the night. It was the perfect location for our event and I am still very happy with our choice. I wouldn't even think twice about having another event there.

Cantigny is an amazing place to get married! We had our ceremony at Cantigny Park on 5/17/14 and our reception at Cantigny Golf Red Oak Room. Everything turned out perfectly! We were very concerned when we had our rehearsal the day before and our ceremony space was super muddy and slightly flooded due to all the recent rain. However, Karen and her staff saved the day when they suggested we could move to the Rock Garden at no extra charge, which was not muddy at all and an even more beautiful space. Karen was very easy to work with. Although she sometimes was hard to reach by phone and took some time to write back with e-mails, everything always got addressed and taken care of in a timely matter and she was very flexible with any and all changes. We were able to add on extra food, such as a carving station during cocktail hour and family style crab legs during dinner and a sweets table later in the evening, when our guest list went from 125 to 80 and we still had to meet the minimum dollar amount. And, the food was AMAZING! Everyone raved about it! Karen and everyone at Cantigny, thank you so much for helping to make our special day an amazing experience in a gorgeous setting! ---Alishia and Paul

We booked our wedding reception venue with Cantigny Golf in Wheaton. Their packages included catering, the wedding cake and even our hotel room for the night at an area hotel, all in all it was a great deal! They were actually pretty well priced - yes wedding receptions are expensive, but there's was on the reasonable side, really! Karen Elmore was our main contact for our reception. She was extremely courteous and flexible with us every step of the way! She was a little difficult to get ahold of at times, but I learned to be patient with her. As time got closer, she was quicker with responding - which was appreciated close to the wedding! The rest of the staff was very professional too! The food, drinks, etc for the wedding were delicious! We have received numerous compliments on the quality of the food and the fact that everyone had more than enough! We chose the package that included appetizers, salad, soup, main course and cake. Everyone loved the cake! The only complaint I heard was the bar area was a little close to the dance floor. This was not really intended, as the bars are usually set up outside on the beautiful patio. Unfortunately, we couldn't enjoy the patio or have the bar set up there because it was a cold and rainy night...not anyone's fault! Just a final note on the facility. It has been remodeled in the last 5 years or so (not sure??). Anyway, it is absolutely beautiful! The one side has huge windows overlooking the golf course, and it had a Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired feel to it. It was a lovely setting for a reception!

We had our ceremony in the Rose Garden and reception at Le Jardin - both venues were great and we would definitely recommend them. Magan was responsive and flexible to our requests throughout the planning process. She addressed all of our concerns in the preceding months and I was incredibly confident relying on her experience and professional judgment. On the day, the transition from ceremony to reception was seamless and the servers during the reception were attentive yet unobtrusive and very accommodating. Overall, I had a great experience with Cantigny, and for an outdoor summer wedding, there are few venues more beautiful!

I loved having my reception at Cantigny. Everything was wonderful! I thought that the food was only ok, but the cake was wonderful! I had my reception in the LeJardin room and it was fantastic! I only wish I had more time to enjoy it instead of having to walk around and visit everyone! So much fun!

We had our reception at the Red Oak Room at Cantigny. We loved absolutely everything about it. It was very reasonably priced especially when compared to other options in the City or surrounding suburbs. The staff at Cantigny is awesome and they were so flexible with our needs and requests. The food was great and we did mini burgers at 10:30pm which was a HUGE hit with our guests. We did go to the bridal show at Cantigny and tasted some of the food there but the food at our reception was so much better! It definitely exceed our expectations. The bar was well stocked and our guests were so pleased with the selection of beers they offered. The grounds at Cantigny golf and the gardens are amazing and we took all of our outdoor pictures there. It is an amazing backdrop. I received so many compliments that I would definitely do it all over again - at Cantigny. I am hoping one day it can serve as a backdrop for baby showers, anniversary parties, etc.!

Our ceremony took place at the East Lawn at cantigny. Many people know about the tree that fell near this site. I was concerned when I heard, however I still decided to go on to have our wedding there because I am obsessed with how gorgeous the wedding site is. They promised the yellow caution tape would be removed before the ceremony. Although it wasn't...my guests could not see the yellow caution tape because they were further down from the area luckily... All in all in regardless of the tree/the tape it was a beautiful site. Nothing affected how wonderful my pictures are.

Our ceremony was in the Rose Garden at Cantigny Park and the reception was at the Red Oak Room at Cantigny Golf Course. The ceremony setting was beautiful and the gardens were amazing! Our guests definitely enjoyed the great scenery. Our reception was great and the food was delicious. Each plate was very large and we received lots of compliments on the steak! (We chose the NY strip steak and the salmon as our entrees - both were delicious.) Karen was very easy to work with and very accommodating to our needs. The service was very professional as well. They worked very well with our other vendors and had back up plans for everything. Though I was worried about the room being too narrow, it accommodated our 120 guest very easily and did not feel cramped at all!

We had our ceremony and reception at Cantigny Golf on 8/27/2011. Everything was amazing. We got a lot for our money, and it really was a one-stop-shop. I highly recommend and if I had to do it over again, I wouldn't consider anywhere else. The scenery is beautiful, which makes for amazing pictures, and it's tucked away from the rest of Wheaton. Karen was wonderful, and the staff accomodated to every last need. Our guests raved about the bartender and staff. Food was great, and they even wrapped up our dinners so we could enjoy it once we got back to the hotel that night. The only thing I didn't like was during our ceremony (on the patio), and some of the golf staff was below and they were talking and we could hear it as we were saying our vows. I wish the clubhouse staff would have been a bit more courteous. Other than that, everything was great!

What an incredible venue! As someone told us when we first booked The East Lawn and The Red Oak Room, the photos you get will be worth the venue price alone ...and as long as the weather cooperates, that's true! (Although it is very nice that if you book both your ceremony and reception with the venue, they will provide a backup rain ceremony site for no extra charge) The booking process was very easy and the entire staff was great at helping us set up tours, food tastings, etc while we made trips to the Midwest from Boston to plan our big day. There were a couple of hiccups in the planning process such as frequent change in coordinators, our last coordinator was actually getting married the same week as us - which we weren't informed of until close to our wedding date and there was construction this summer which affected/moved our bridal suite a number of times. However no matter what issue came up, the staff were incredibly responsive and did everything they could to make our day perfect. In the end the weather behaved and we had an absolutely incredible outdoor wedding with the help of Giselle, the current day-of coordinator on the park side, who really did a phenomenal job at the rehearsal, getting everything set up for the ceremony and cuing us at the start of the ceremony. One important thing to note, they don't close or rope off anything for your wedding so park visitors will be walking around/near the ceremony site and in our case - despite Giselle's best efforts to intercept them - a stubborn elderly couple walked right through our bridal processional. There were also a number of other couples who had traveled to the park just to take wedding photos, however thankfully our photographers were great and worked around them so the park looks deserted in our photos!
