Mills Apple Farm

11477 Pocahontas Rd, Marine, IL
Quiet commercial orchard with farm market and snack bar, lighted party pavilion with stage, children's play area, woodsy wedding area, wagon rides, etc. There is the wedding meadow, developed for quiet county weddings in a woodsy setting. Birds chirp in the surrounding forest, butterflies flitter and the clouds float gently overhead while vows are given. Others have chosen to marry among the peach trees. What prettier setting than being surrounded by beautiful fruit trees covered with fruit? There is also a place for a large tent (for the wedding) tied directly to the pavilion (for dinner and dancing). Then there is the pavilion itself, under a roof, protected from the elements. (The pavilion is also the alternative if outdoor weddings are rained out). It has a stage, 1800 square feet dance floor and seating for two hundred if needed. Guests may decorate it. There are options for receptions as well as weddings. Most receptions happen in the pavilion. If it is a large reception, a tent may be used in connection with the pavilion. The pavilion has a stage and lights with space for dancing on the polished concrete floor. Receptions under the stars. There are several locations in the orchards for outdoor reception dinners. Caterers set up a portable kitchen nearby and serve from there. The reception then moves to the pavilion for cake cutting and dancing.
