Funks Grove Wedding Venue, An Eventective User from Bloomington, IL

Funks Grove in Illinois is an idyllic setting to have a wedding. My family had their wedding out there. Funks grove is nestled in the middle of a beautiful, sprawling forest. We had our wedding out there and highly enjoyed it. It is a picturesque setting. We took a limousine out there and there was plenty of parking for everyone. There are benches that people can sit on carved out of natural trees. The sunlight plays off of the tree canopy and provides a beautiful ambiance. This is a great place to take wedding photos because the forest is a gorgeous background. We had cake out there and refreshments and had a great big party in the outdoor venue. Everyone enjoyed themselves. There is a perfect spot where you can get married and the preacher can read to officiating to you. There is a little clearing in the great forest and that is where we held the event. It is just a very natural setting that is simple and elegant. We took many pictures in the natural area and there was plenty of seating for everyone. The kids enjoyed playing out in nature and everyone appreciated the glorious scenery. There is a natural aisle the bride and groom can walk down and the benches are situated on either side. In fall it is particularly beautiful because all the trees are wild colors of autumn. A lot of people really enjoy being out in nature and this is the perfect setting for them. I highly recommend Funks Grove for weddings.
