A superb venue of a suberp wedding, An Eventective User from Trenton, MI

Last June, I attended my sister's wedding at Ravina on the Lakes. It was a gorgeous outdoor ceremony. Ravina on the Lakes supplied chairs, an archway, some decor to go around the archway, even a ""red carpet"" style walkway for the bride to walk down. Not to mention the entire ceremony was lakefront! All of this was included with the basic and cheap price of holding the wedding at their facility. My sister's reception was located inside the main building, but she had told me that she could have chosen between the building and a second facility right behind that was more of a pavillion. She said she also could have had blow up ""rides"", volleyball, and other games for the kids. She also had the option to have fireworks or a bonfire. Mind you she'd have to pay for it, but Ravina on the Lakes took care of setting it up. Her reception was buffet style, although that was not the only style they offered. Not to mention their menu was insane! She was able to choose from different meal plans that had pretty much any food you could think of. and for desert, they had a CHEESECAKE MARTINI BAR! i thought that was the best part of the wedding! for all those who dont like all the big flashy details and just want to know the basics, Ravina on the Lakes is a very clean, well organized facility. The quality of the location and the quality of the food and service cannot be compared. Your guests will not be dissatisfied.

The Old Rugged Barn is central Illinois’ newest barn event venue just outside Towanda IL. We are ideally located within minutes of Bloomington-Normal, historic Rt 66 and the Interstate. We can do just about any occasion you wish to celebrate. The Barn has its prominent place on our small 3.5 farmstead which provides ample parking and space for outdoor activities. The original barn was built about 1920 and we put on an addition 2016. The main level now has 2400 sq ft and the loft has 1000 with a center opening. Capacity is listed as 350, but that varies with the arrangement of furnishings and type of event for which the space is used. The barn is heated so rentals are available year around.
