Let the natural beauty of Lake County be the backdrop to your big day...

If the wedding of your dreams includes scenic vistas and picturesque natural settings, look no further. Lake County is home to beautiful lakes, lush forests, flowering gardens and other beautiful outdoor spaces that serve as a one-of-a-kind backdrop to your wedding or reception.

Treat your guests to magnificent views of Lake Michigan at the Illinois Beach Resort. Enjoy the greenery and lakes of the scenic 1,135-acre Independence Grove Forest Preserve. Take in the history and lush gardens at Wandering Tree Estate. With its world-renowned plant collections and gardens, the Chicago Botanic Garden is a perfect place for a garden or flower-inspired wedding event.

Nestled within the native landscape of the Greenbelt Forest Preserve between North Chicago and Waukegan, the Greenbelt Cultural Center offers panoramic views and all-inclusive facilities to make your wedding hassle-free. Likewise, the beautifully restored and renovated Lehmann Mansion in the Village of Lake Villa is perfect for a classically charming event.

The full-service Marriott Lincolnshire Resort, located on 175 naturally wooded acres of Chicago's North Shore, offers everything you need from planning to event space, all located within gorgeous, newly renovated facilities. Thunderhawk Golf Club’s banquet facilities can also accommodate a wide range of wedding sizes.
