  • We were looking for a simple, straightforward experience that included what we needed and didn’t require a lot of shopping around, and we found it at The Falls. Two short, convenient meetings took care of all the details. We found our cake vendor at the tasting dinner, had it delivered, and just had to show up on the party evening. They took such good care of us. SO EASY. I would gladly use their services again if I have the opportunity!

  • Years before I was engaged, I saw a random wedding video of a couple in front of the most beautiful waterfall, greenery, stones, and flowers. I told my mom that I had to get married there. And so I did! The Falls was the first and last venue my now-husband and I visited. We were so happy with the ceremony space, the reception space, and how SO MUCH was taken care of with them. Planning was much less stressful because we chose The Falls. Ashley and Brad were phenomenal to work with throughout the planning process, as well as the day of the wedding. Thank you all for the most wonderful day!!

  • The Falls is an absolutely beautiful venue to have a wedding!! My husband and I currently live in Florida but wanted to have our wedding at home in Illinois to accommodate more family/friends. From day one when I called for info Nancy was super helpful! We must have exchanged 100+ emails over the course of my planning, and she always responded to my questions quickly and even returned emails at 10 o'clock at night! She was absolutely fantastic at calming my nerves. The only thing I would suggest (having been the bride) is to have a rehearsal if at all possible. They told me that it wasn't necessary (and maybe it wasn't) and I tried to go with the flow, but 30 min before the ceremony my entire wedding party was panicked because they didn't knowexactly what to do or where to go and didn't want to look stupid which began to stress me out. We managed to figure it out, and all my guests said that they couldn't even tell we hadn't rehearsed, but just for peace of mind I wish we had at... Read more

  • The Falls - Columbia, IL was the destination of our April 2016 ceremony and reception :) Everything was top-notch: the food, the service, the DJ, and the venue! We were extremely pleased! Our guests truly enjoyed themselves and have had so many nice things to say about our magical day. Ashley was a superb coordinator from the initial planning in September 2015 until the very last moment the day of. She helped set-up the decor, manage the vendors, and organize the day - I can't say enough great things about her. I would highly recommend this venue for your wedding day! No need to search for a DJ or lighting specialist - these services are offered there as well!

  • I couldn't have asked for a better place for our wedding! From the start, Kip and Ashley were very helpful. The Falls was already one of our top places but at our first meeting, we were sold! I felt we got great value moneywise, but especially convenience wise as well! They take care of everything for you. Ashley was always there to answer any questions and help us through the process of getting ready for a wedding. We were allowed to get into the bridal suite early the day of, drop off our items for ceremony and reception a few days beforehand and they also worked out a payment plan for us (monthly). The day of she made sure everything ran smoothly, walked us through a quick rehearsal, and had everything set up just the way we wanted it. The entire staff the whole evening was friendly and helpful. Big shoutout to Ashley and Brad for last minute changing our schedule a bit and announcing us into the reception earlier than planned - that meant a lot to me for extra time with family and...

  • The Falls staff was so wonderful! We knew we wanted to book The Falls the first time we walked through. They supplied so much and helped us with all our requests. Everything was reasonably priced. The food was delicious. I couldn't have dreamed of anything better! It was absolutely perfect!! Ashley was so helpful and always responded to my constant emails right away! They were available to get in touch with all the time. I couldn't have dreamed of a better venue. I wish I could go back and relive the whole night again!

  • I cannot express how incredibly delightful it was to work with everyone at The Falls! I originally called because I'd had some sticker shock from another venue. I spoke with Brad and his attempt to describe the beauty of the outdoor waterfall sold me immediately. They sent us a contract by the end of the day. We visited later that month and booked our date! Some people talk about how pricey a wedding is at The Falls, but I honestly think it's an amazing value and I had no problem paying for convenience. I had stated early on that I didn't care about chair covers with bows and since they rent those, they were able to take that off our package price. The DJ (Top Cats) was included in our package and a shuttle was available to the Hampton Inn down the road for a small fee. Guests talked about how the shuttle was incredibly convenient! Although we rented our centerpieces from somewhere else, they had centerpieces we could have used for free or rent some from them. The food was absolutely a... Read more

  • We had our wedding reception at the Falls, and had a wonderful time! All of the employees were incredibly helpful and accommodating! The food was DELICIOUS! We received so many compliments about the dinner! The location and background for pictures was perfect! The space was comfortable and well kept. It was so nice that all of the table linens were included and set up perfectly when we arrived. We couldn't have asked for a better reception location!
