  • We worked with Marta and couldn't have been happier with her knowledge and willingness to help us. She was incredibly responsive and made sure our wedding day was as smooth as possible. There were so many little things that she made sure went off without a hitch, it would be impossible to list them all. I recommend Marta and the entire staff to anyone looking to have their wedding or event at Independence Grove

  • The venue itself is beautiful and has lots of options for indoor and outdoor wedding ceremonies and receptions. The staff (especially Marta) are very professional, kind, courteous, and accommodating and did everything they could to make our wedding special. The caterer they work with (Catering by Michael's) is excellent in terms of food quality, options and service. We had a wonderful wedding experience and would highly recommend it to anyone.

  • Marta was amazing! She made our wedding look beautiful and worked within our limited budget! She always got back to me within a day or two! The food was incredible, the service was incredible! The venue view is to die for!

  • We had a wonderful experience working with Independence Grove! Compared to the other venues we looked at, in both the city and the suburbs, IG was by far the best value and in the end was worth every penny. Additionally, the setting was so unique and made it different from every other venue we saw. Everyone we worked with at IG was wonderful--in particular, our event coordinator, Marta, made the whole wedding planning process much less stressful. She had every last detail covered and ensured from the start that the planning went smoothly. She was always very aware of our tight budget and never pushed us to upgrade. The entire team that was working the night of our wedding was incredible and attentive which we also heard from our guests. As for the food, IG uses Catering by Michaels and it was honestly the best wedding food I've had. The hors d'oeuvres were fantastic and got rave reviews. I loved that there is some time set aside for the bride and groom to get a platter full of t... Read more

  • The most perfect venue you can ask for! We had our ceremony and reception here and it was 1000000x better than we could have ever imagined. It's a beautiful venue as is so we didn't have to spend much on our decorations, were able to take pictures throughout and received sooo many compliments on the venue. But there were two things that makes EIG the best wedding venue, not the beautiful views and that you have the venue to yourself but MARTA and the FOOD! Marta, our wedding coordinator, is truly a blessing! From having amazing communication with us from the moment we toured, to the 9pm emails with questions and even the day after our wedding. She truly kept us true to ourselves throughout the whole process. We had expressed not wanting to spend a ton of money on the miscellaneous items and she kept us true to that. She made sure the husband and I were taken care of from having champagne to toast after our ceremony to making sure we had food to eat. Even prior to the wedding we ha... Read more

  • All of the 5star reviews don't even begin to express my love for EIG. Marta - she is one of the nicest, organized, and hardest workers I know. Between her and Stewart they truly made our night the best night of our lives. Now, honestly it all is overwhelming but let your coordinator walk you through it. It is their job and they will ask you all the questions you didn't even know you had. They will fill in the blanks. THEY'VE GOT YOU! Our tasting was set up and it was outstanding from the food to the actual place. Very private and nice. Guests loved the food, and yes get the donuts. No one wants the cake - we got a small ceremonial cake to cut and that was it. Marta, you know I cannot thank you enough from the bottom of our hearts. This girl talks to your vendors and coordinates ect because your job as bride and groom is to show up on your day and be stress free. I can tell you we were truly blown away and couldn't have asked for anything better. Last part - issue with the hotel -- Holi... Read more

  • Wow, where to even begin. Our wedding was everything and more that we imagined thanks to Alyson and her amazing team at Independence Grove. I spent hours researching venues, and can 100% say that I would have regretted going anywhere else with our special day. They really went out of their way to make sure my husband, myself, and our family and friends felt special on our wedding day. I never felt panicked or that I did not know what was going on, as the communication was clear, and you are given a timeline for planning which is immensely helpful! I also really appreciate when vendors work with you and your budget to make your vision possible. The food is FANTASTIC! Our guests could not stop raving about the food, and the venue, and that is all thanks to Alyson, and her team. They want you to relax and have a good time at your own wedding, and we did because they took care of so much! Also, the very thoughtful ways Alyson and her team would check in through out the night was ... Read more

  • I knew I wanted my wedding reception to be at Independence Grove even before I met with the Event Coordinators and saw the actual venue in person, but everything surpassed my expectations through the entire process! I got so many compliments on the location (despite it being winter) and the food, especially the late night taco bar! Marta was a phenomenal Event Coordinator for us and went above and beyond what I expected her to do, and made everything as smooth as possible for us. The price of a wedding in general scared me, but Marta was very good at helping us stay within our budget and giving her honest opinion about things making us feel a lot more comfortable. The staff that was there the day of was also excellent. Couldn't have had a better experience with Independence Grove, worth every penny!

  • We recently had our wedding at Independence Grove (end of December). Alyson and the staff at Independence Grove went above and beyond to make our wedding amazing. Alyson was very helpful in helping us stick to our budget for the wedding. When we found out that we would have slightly fewer guests than originally planned, she helped us adjust our food and beverage options so that we would get the most out of our money. We were also really happy with how flexible the venue was. They allowed us to bring some of our own beer to be served by the bartender. Whenever we had questions about anything, Alyson always responded promptly. And, just another example of how the staff at Independence Grove went above and beyond, when we realized during the middle of the wedding that we had left our guests' wedding favors in our car at the hotel across the street, Alyson quickly drove us to get them. We were extremely grateful. In addition to the staff being amazing, the venue itself is a beautiful place... Read more

  • Choosing Independence Grove for our wedding was hands-down the best decision we made for our big day. We grew up in Libertyville, so we naturally wanted to look at Independence Grove. We were blown away when we had our first meeting with Alyson - she was extremely professional and knowledgeable, and the space was absolutely beautiful. We booked our event right away! In the months leading up to the wedding, everyone kept asking us “Are you nervous/overwhelmed with planning yet??” and my honest answer was always no. Alyson and the event staff are so thorough and easy to get in touch with, and throughout the whole process, we felt like we had nothing to worry about. On our wedding day especially, my husband, myself, and both of our families were able to fully enjoy the day because EVERYTHING WAS TAKEN CARE OF! Everything was accounted for, everything looked beautiful, and we felt extremely well-prepared going into the day. The wedding went perfectly. Another huge advantage... Read more

  • The EIG team was amazing and made our wedding incredible. Alyson was always in constant contact with us and helped us walk through every step of the process. Our guests have not stopped raving about the food and how gorgeous the venue is. We would not have been able to enjoy our wedding as much if it wasn't for Alyson and her team running the show. We can't say enough nice things about them!!

  • As a younger couple we began looking into venues with a budget in mind, but also very high expectations of our wedding day. Working with Marta, she helped work with within our budget but also make sure to make the day everything it could be. Periodic check ins making sure we were still on pace getting ready, and her attention to detail the day of made it everything we could have dreamed of. Oh, and did I mention the venue was literally taken out of our minds and turned into such a picturesque location. When we first walked in our jaws dropped with how beautiful the room was. Thank you IG and thank you Marta for making our wedding day perfect.

  • My Husband and I got married this November at Independence Grove, and it was absolutely perfect!!! First, this venue is just beautiful at any time of year - it actually snowed on the morning of our wedding, and the pictures so far have looked amazing! Our Ceremony and Reception were both held indoors, and those floor to ceiling windows overlooking the lake, with tealights all along them, make for a magical setting - especially for our 6pm ceremony. Next, the food (Catering by Michaels) is soooo delicious! We are still getting rave reviews about everything from our Appetizers to the Entrees, and especially the flaming donuts for dessert! Finally, we (mostly I) could not have made it through all the wedding planning without our amazing coordinator Alyson! She kept us on point, she handled everything we could throw at her with patience and her sweet disposition, and she was always available to answer a question (or ten). On the day of our wedding she displayed all of our decorations beaut... Read more
