The staff and service for our recent wedding ceremony and reception at Carriage Greens Country club was spectacular. Jennifer and Jill took care of everything we could ask for and went above and beyond to ensure that our day ran smoothly. I can not stress enough how professional they were in dealing with any questions or concerns my or myself had, we were blown away. We had a beautiful late summer ceremony with the pristine golf course behind and our reception immediately followed. The golf course offered an excellent backdrop for beautiful photos of our bridal party and family. The transition from the ceremony to the reception was seamless. The service and staff for the reception were friendly and willing to help us and our guests with whatever requests we had. We chose a family style dinner and never did it seem like any guests were lacking any of our menu choices, and the food was delicious! On all accounts, Carriage Greens Country Club was an amazing place and a beautiful setting for our big day!
My husband and I are so satisfied with the level of support, direction, and services offered by Carriage Greens staff. Both Jill and Jennifer were such an asset to us in terms of navigating the in’s and out’s of stressful wedding planning. We received such care and they made sure that everything moved swimmingly that day. The venue itself was beautiful and clean, and all support staff was enjoyable to work with. They also were willing to cater to our specific requests such as creating specific superhero cocktails, adjusting for dietary needs, and also allowing for incorporation of cultural foods. Despite the unintended heat of the day, Jennifer and Jill were able to help keep our guests as comfortable as possible for our outside ceremony. We are completely satisfied and are quite happy to know that all of our guests expressed having such a great time at our wedding! Thank you very much. We would highly advocate Carriages Greens to others as a location for celebrating their special day.
My husband and I got married on June 10, 2017 – our ceremony and reception was at Carriage Greens Country Club. The outdoor ceremony was a perfect setting - beautiful brick patio overlooking the picturesque golf course. I absolutely loved the pond and willow tress – very romantic view. The reception inside went smooth – dinner was delicious and drinks were flowing. Dinner was well timed and the wait staff / bartenders were all on point. We enjoyed the use of the outdoor deck during the reception – it was a very fun setting, lit up with sting lights. Our guests mingled around the cocktail tables and really enjoyed themselves. The event coordination care of Jennifer and Jill at Carriage Greens was beyond exceptional. They were always quick to respond to our wedding planning questions via phone, email or various in person meetings. They used their years of expertise to guide us through the process. From picking out the best appetizers for our guests, to explaining how the ceremony should flow, we would have been lost without them! There are so many little details and they truly took the stress out of it. If you are considering Carriage Greens Country Club as a wedding venue, the choice is clear! From the great setting, to the delicious food, to the exceptional care and guidance of the event coordinators and staff – it’s the right decision to make! -Mrs. Alexis Scheirer, Chicago, IL 6/30/2017
What an unbelievable day!! Everything was exactly what we wanted our wedding day to be....perfect!! The whole process was so much easier than I ever imagined. From the beginning the owner and management staff was a dream to work with and took a lot of my worrying and made it into excitement for the best day of my life. Once we arrived at the country club the staff was so accommodating and helped relax all of us. We were able to take pictures on the golf course and those turned out so beautiful!! The course director and his staff led us out to the course to assure our safety and helped our photographer find some beautiful spots to take our pictures. Our ceremony was unbelievable!! We had the gazebo area outside to ourselves and the setup was great! Everyone was comfortable and the whole ceremony was so special. The bridal suite had perfect access to the gazebo area which made everything so smooth. The reception was fantastic! The staff was so accommodating to all of our guests and everything from the setup of seating to the food was way beyond our expectations! The food was a huge hit with everyone! Again, the staff couldn't have been better and we enjoyed the whole experience of having our wedding at Carriage Greens!! We had the best day ever!!!! I highly recommend this venue for anyone's wedding.
A beautiful facility!!! The food was AMAZING! The staff, professional. And the view from the East West Room - unbelievable!!! Not to mention the BEST open bar package around. We couldn't be happier with our decision to use Carriage Greens. They have been in business for a long time and it shows! Thank you, Brian for making our day so special! I'm sure my husband will see you when he's golfing at Carriage Greens, this summer! xo xo
Kind of hard to get in touch with at times, but overall definitely worth it. Their food is amazing and their prices can't be beat! They were very accommodating with our decorator and with us. It was a little stressful at times with getting details straightened out, but the day of went well! One thing that was odd though was that they would not let us /bridal party into the reception on time because "the food wasn't ready". They said we could've gone in, mingled, and then come back out just to go back in for introductions/entrance. I think they should've let us in and do the introductions AND THEN let us mingle while the food was getting prepared. We missed a good chunk of time that we could've spent with our guests, but instead, we were waiting outside the room to be let in. I was told our guests were complaining that we were taking too long, but it wasn't our fault; we were ready to go. Also, the table numbers/signs were set out out-of-order. I don't know why. I placed people at specific tables, but then the numbers weren't set out that way. But that was a minor frustration since most people only sat to eat and then they were up. Overall, it was all good though. Everyone had a fun time. And since it was strangely nice out for December, we were able to utilize the outdoor patio too. The lights were hanging up there and everything looked so pretty. They also have pretty awesome bridal suites. There are two so we used one and the guys used the other one. Even with the snafus, 10/10 would book an event here again!
The ladies at carriage greens were on it. They had their A game and were wedding pros. They made sure everything was on point, from timing, to making sure everyone was in the right position for pictures, making sure shirts were tucked in properly. They helped all the guys with their boutineers, they helped with pretty much everything. The location itself was beautiful for our ceremony and photos. Best part? Each couple got their own golf cart to go out on the course while we went out for photos. We had an absolute blast and the day went super smooth and turned out gorgeous.
Jill is awesome you work with. She made it so we didn't have to worry the day of. Everything was just as we hoped. The staff was great and the food delicious. I would highly recommend Carriage Greens.
Carriage Greens was a GREAT venue for our daughter's wedding on Oct. 7, 2017. It was supposed to be outside in the gazebo but it poured. Jennifer & Jill went out of their way to make the inside wedding beautiful. They were always VERY helpful with everything. Jill did a great job of taking the decorating off my list and everything was beautiful! The food was excellent and all of the wait staff and other personnel were very polite and helpful. The food was delicious. The day turned out wonderful despite the rain and later the sun came out and they got to get pictures outside with a beautiful rainbow in the background. Thanks to everyone at Carriage Greens!!!!
I recently had my wedding at Carriage Greens Country Club in Darien, IL. We booked almost 1 ½ years before our wedding day. We were married on September 30, 2017. From the beginning there were problems. We went through multiple wedding coordinators through the process. The first major problem was the room we had booked was already double booked. We were forced to change rooms and we specifically chose that room because it fit our guest amount. It ended up working out for the best because our new room- The East West Room is gorgeous! It has large chandeliers and an outdoor deck with lights. Very pretty. We had 90 guests and it fit them all comfortably. They stated it normally holds a lot more than that but I think guests would be extremely crowded. The second major problem was the cake and sweets table what was supposed to be included for a small per person fee. I was told I should go to Costco or Sam’s and buy a fake cake and bring sheet cake instead. Very shady. They did not want to honor the per person fee and stated I would have to pay the difference if we did that. Plus, we would have to pay the 20 % service charge and tax on that. It made no sense! I was enraged. I decided to use my own bakery and not work with them on the cake. I was told that by their General Manager- who is extremely unprofessional and manipulative. She is the problem with that venue.She also yelled at one of my guest extremely loud and stated she can shut down this whole wedding. Furthermore, when we arrived to take pictures the GM was telling my photographer to pick a place in front to take pictures with our grandmas. I specially told them I want to take the grandparents on the golf course to take pictures. The GM worked it out and provided more golf carts but seemed extremely annoyed.
We just got married on 9/9 and everything was perfect! The food was absolutely amazing and we could not have asked for a better night. The entire process leading up to the wedding went smooth as Jill made sure everything was ready to go! Great communication! Jill and Jennifer basically acted as our wedding coordinator the night of the wedding to make sure everything went smooth!!
Jennifer is amazing. They are a beautiful location, and a great price point. And they will work with you to get what you want.
The staff was excellent and worked with us all the way through. They had great ideas that made for an excellent event. We couldn't have been happier and can't think of a better place to have a wedding !!!
Our first impression of Carriage Greens as a potential reception site was fantastic. It only got better from there. I planned a wedding from afar and the staff at Carriage Greens was fabulous in getting back to me with all of my silly questions. Carriage Greens was accommodating, the food was delicious, and the bar packages offered were outstanding! This is definitely the venue to choose if you like to get the most for your money. We would choose them again if we got to do it all over!
It was beautiful. Kelly was great, she did everything in her hands to customize for us.
Carriage Greens has been a special place for weddings in my family. My mom, older sister, and aunt all used this venue for their receptions. As soon as I was engaged, I knew I wanted to use the m as our reception venue as well! We just got married on Saturday 11/19/2016 and we had a blast. The venue was beautiful, the room was set up perfectly, everyone was nice and welcoming to our guests. The only reason I am giving this venue a 4 out of 5 stars is only because we had a few bumps along the way before getting to our big day. While turnover does happen, we had the unfortunate experience of going through 3 different wedding coordinators throughout the year of our engagement. The system they were using was not reliable in getting each new coordinators all of the information that was discussed between each person. We had to provide the food we picked twice because it was not written down, we had to keep track and follow up regarding the amounts we still owed since we had shown we paid more than what they were telling us we did, had been promised one pricing package but then was told a higher package was being applied to our wedding and so on. While I know this was just a miscommunication between the three separate people taking over as coordinator and it all was resolved before the wedding, it was something that was frustrating and complicated when it should have been easy. Overall, the experience was wonderful and everything was exactly how we wanted it to be for our big day but it is unfortunate we had to go through a period of time of miscommunications.
My sister had her wedding here last month and it was great! The room was decorated beautifully and had an amazing view of the golf course. The food was delicious and the service staff did a wonderful job. We definitely plan to come back for more events!
What a wonderful venue. I had many places to choose from for our wedding. So many considerations that affected our decision. In the end we chose Carriage Greens Country Club. This selection came so easily after our first meeting with their staff. They were knowledgeable and helpful with all my questions and concerns for a perfect day. Kelly and Jennifer made the ceremony and reception a seamless beautiful event. Jackie's assistance with rehearsal and server support was incredible. The price fit perfectly within our budget and the food is really outstanding. The grounds are beautiful and lent toward fantastic pictures. I highly recommend Carriage Greens for your wedding venue.
My daughter got married and had her reception at Carriage Greens last weekend. Everything we asked for was there. I really enjoyed the food, fresh and plentiful. I felt like it was more than worth the money we paid. Both Jennifer and Kelly were very helpful and stayed the entire evening to make sure everything was going well. My wife really appreciated that. I do not normally write reviews, but I was so pleased with everything they did to make my daughters day special deserved a mention. Thank you Jennifer, kelly and the rest of the staff at Carriage Greens.
My son lives in Nashville and just got engaged he wants to get married back in Illinois where his family is. This being said I have to do all the leg work for him. I received a tour of Carriage Greens and there was a wedding going on they looked like they were having so much fun. After talking with Jennifer who is the GM and took the time to give me a tour we are booking here. Carriage Greens has everything he is looking for 51/2 hour open bar that doesn't close during dinner, a beautiful golf course for pictures, and a staff that is willing to go the extra step to help. Also, I had lunch in the restaurant and the food was great.
My daughter just had her wedding here and I was a little worried at first but then we found out they were under new management and they were GREAT!!!! The food was better than at the tasting and i was surprised because there was so many people. Also, they opened up the doors to this new deck that was not there when we booked with the lights on it was beautiful. Thanks carriage greens your new management and updates were a great idea.
Just got married here and everything was amazing. The staff was upbeat and friendly made it feel like it was really my day and I could have anything I wanted. Also, I took pictures on the golf course and loved that my guest were able to have a drink at the bar instead of waiting around. THANK YOU CARRIAGE GREENS FOR A GREAT DAY!!!
Recently had our daughter's wedding here. The venue is absolutely spectacular and the staff was wonderful to work with. Very helpful and efficient. The menu was very good and affordable.
The Staff is amazing. They were very flexible with our menu choices and helping us with all of the details. We took pictures on the golf course after our ceremony that turned out amazing. they took us out on golf carts and were very patient. While we were taking photos, our guests were enjoying appetizers and an open bar. We were able to use the bridal suite to freshen up between pictures and during the reception. All of my guests complimented the food. Affordable but not cheap in any way! The bar was open the entire time during our event and did not shut down during dinner which we had a hard time finding anywhere else. Late night snacks and pizzas kept all of our guests happy as we danced the night away. All around great value for great food and an amazing staff.
WOW! What a beautiful venue! Our room overlooked the 18th hole, head chef Adam came out to congratulate us during dinner. Staff and ownership - very professional!!! Great prices and bar package, too. Thank you Adriana!
