The secluded beauty of the botanical gardens and arboretum at  Hornbaker Gardens is the perfect choice for your special day.  Say “I do” on the manicured meadow, overlooking the pond, surrounded by nature’s beauty.
Then walk to The Barn and start the party!  This new facility was designed with your wedding in mind.  Rustic on the outside, but elegant on the inside, it features lots of glass looking out onto the gardens, along with a bride’s room, groom’s room, modern bathrooms and a large kitchen.  Heating and air conditioning guarantee that you and your guests will dine and celebrate in comfort.  The large, covered patio provides a place to start the party with drinks and hors d’oeuvres, and to step outside later and enjoy the evening air.
Photo opportunities abound in the unique setting that is  Hornbaker Gardens, including our 2-acre native Illinois prairie.
The gardens, The Barn, and our staff are here to make your wedding day as perfect and beautiful as possible.  Start your dream wedding by calling our office at 815-659-3282 or sending a text to Lindsay at 815-303-8015.
