Originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, I currently reside in Chicago with my deer-turned-handyman spouse and our two spunky felines.
We love it there, but it helps that we live about 4 miles away. The lodge is nestled in a grove of evergreens that keep their beautiful green branches year round so it looks so cozy in the winter. The sunflower and wildflower fields bloom in the summer.
There are several flat trails that are suitable for a wedding party and we love adventurous couples who are wanting to go out in the park for pictures. Of course, even around the lodge is beautiful with the log cabins and the trail bridge. No matter what, we will choose picturesque locations and have fun with you for your photos!
The lodge is a beautiful spot for a wedding. Outdoor weddings at the sunrise shelter are under a group of trees which make for a lovely secluded spot in the state park. We love seeing the ways everyone decorates the room and adds to the fun, but mostly we love seeing everyone dancing and having fun with you!
Year round the Starved Rock area provides a beautiful location for photos. It is essential that you hire a local photographer who knows the area.
We can provide guidance to our clients on their wedding day or at their engagement session, even during inclement weather. We have spots throughout the park that we know will work and will be accessible.
