Emily Kamp (now Van Gran!)

Just wanted to thank you for making Em & Curt's reception so wonderful. Your personal touch and attention to detail made it seem like we were with family. You and your husband should be very proud of all that you've done to make Southern Charm one of the best wedding venues in the Chicagoland area. God bless you!

Terri - Steven and I can't thank you and your family enough for making our wedding day so beautiful and special. You truly went above and beyond for us. A huge thank you for letting us use your amazing venue for our big day! Southern Charm Venues gave us a day that we will never forget!

With love, Steven and Spencer Rankin

We just got married here on April 27th, 2019, and it was absolutely AMAZING. All of our guests LOVED this venue. It was beautifully and perfectly decorated, you can dress up or dress down, the reception hall is quite large, and even with 200 guests we still had a large dance floor. The ceremony is also held there so no one has to travel between places. The owners Terri and Jerry are very accommodating and helpful, they really help make your day go as smooth as possible. They have heat and air conditioning, and also have beautiful bathrooms. There is a bridal suite where the bridal party and bride can hang out before and after the ceremony/reception, and it also has a private bathroom. Overall, this place was perfect and I wouldn't have changed anything!!

For a quaint country setting, look no further! A 5,000 sq. ft. barn that can be transformed into your dreams. It has a large cement floor for tables and dancing and a terrific sound system. No outhouse needed - it has modern facilities. A great venue for an unforgettable experience!

Amazing venue! The owners are kind and welcoming. They really care about your experience and making your special day perfect. I would highly recommend this place.

My daughter had her wedding here just recently and it was perfect. The owners Terri and Jerry are amazing, very helpful and easy to work with. This place is absolutely beautiful and spotless. I received so many compliments. I would definitely recommend this place.

I had my wedding here in October and it was gorgeous, just perfect. Terri, the owner, is truly a special person. She was so sweet and kind, and so helpful from the second I walked into the barn until we walked out of there after our reception. She helps cover every little detail, and was a HUGE help when we'd forgotten a few items...she had it all on hand and let us borrow it for the day! The barn itself is huge, has multiple rooms, a fantastic bridal suite with private bathroom, stunning guest bathrooms (they are super classy), huge chandeliers, and Terri is a master decorator!! The decor there is so spot on perfect to create the ambience and atmosphere you'd expect on your big day. Don't be put off by hearing "barn wedding" because this is no ordinary barn. The first time I heard about the place I didn't have high expectations until I got there to take a peek and was blown away; we booked right away! The place is gorgeous, the owners Terri and Jerry are 100% stand up people, and the experience was really unforgettable. 5 stars for sure!!
