Perfect Place for an Outdoor Wedding, An Eventective User from Chicago, IL

Last summer my wife and I chose the white pines golf club to be wed at. I believe we got the best kept secret in the area, we looked at several outdoor venues but fell in love with this golf course. We didn't need a day planner or anything, they practicably provided it. The cost is what most people fret about but not here, they are very flexible in the different packages. We went with an open bar at the reception as it was a great value and tons of fun! The service was wonderful and the wait staff was focused but having fun with everyone. The food was well prepared and looked amazing. The taste was average but I don't feel like that took away from the day much. The setting was great surrounded by lush greens and trees. The sun was shinning and they took great photos for us. If I could complain about one thing it would be their schedule, its pretty packed in the summer so try to plan early. They also didn't make a few last minute changes that my wife asked for but they were very small so I understand. I don't regret one single thing about our wedding at white pines, even the price tag!
