Events by Mistwood will continue the storybook feel of your romance with the timeless, refined setting created at Mistwood Golf Club. This venue, located in the southern suburbs, perfectly blends Old World charm with modern elegance. Mistwood Golf Club boasts a castle-like entrance with extensive views of rolling green hills, charming stone bridges, and opulent water features. The beautiful photos do most of the talking, but let me fill you in on the details of what your wedding experience will look like at Mistwood Golf Club:
Indoor or Outdoor? Big or Small? You Decide
You already have a pretty firm idea of how many people you’re inviting to attend your nuptials. The good news is, whether you want a small, intimate ceremony and reception or a grand event with hundreds of people watching you walk down the aisle, Mistwood Golf Club can cater to your wedding vision. In fact, the venue has three spaces available, each as beautiful as the next.
The Courtyard: Have you always wanted to say “I do” surrounded by lush gardens? Then the Courtyard may be just what you’ve been searching for. Located just outside of the clubhouse, it’s the little details that help make this open space so alluring. The colorful hues from the seasonal garden contrast beautifully with the warm tones of the stone patio and rustic wrought iron gates.
The Terrace Room: If you’re opting for a more intimate ceremony or cocktail hour, consider the Terrace Room as the setting for your nuptials. This cozy space sets the mood for a romantic evening with warm lighting, high ceilings and a view of the golf course.
The Great Hall: This is Mistwood Golf Club’s main indoor event space. Just like the rest of the spaces, it offers a grand view of the peaceful golf course and exudes plenty of rustic charm. The Great Hall is dressed with elegant chandeliers, an intimate fireplace, and dark wood paneling to create a stunning contrast against the ivory linens and farm style tables.
Whatever space you choose, Mistwood Golf Club will provide ivory linens and napkins as well as tables (round or rectangular), Chiavari chairs with ivory seat cushions and other decor options.
But wait … there’s more! Events by Mistwood also manages The Grand Ballroom at Joliet Union Station. Built in 1912, this historic venue sets the tone for a vintage, glamorous event. The Grand Ballroom doesn’t need much added decor, as it has retained its 1912 classic architecture, floor-to-ceiling arched windows, and warm, crystal chandeliers, all of which create a truly picturesque wedding. Just like Mistwood Golf Club, The Grand Ballroom offers you and your spouse-to-be everything you’ll need for a flawless wedding day, from a private bridal suite to customized menu options and both indoor and outdoor spaces to host your ceremony and reception. Be sure to stop for a photo opp on the venue’s brilliant, marble staircase.
Breathtaking First Look Photo Opps
First looks provide the perfect opportunity to get some alone time with your other half before the wonderful craziness of your ceremony and reception ensues. It’s such a special moment that deserves the most beautiful backdrop, and luckily, your photographer won’t have to work too hard to get stunning photos at Mistwood Golf Club or Joliet Union Station. Have your first look on one of the scenic stone bridges or kiss your fiance under the delicate detailing of the golf club’s gazebo or while “waiting” at Joliet Union Station.
Once you’ve selected a location to tie the knot, it’s time to think about what your wedding menu will look like! Events by Mistwood offers you entirely customizable menus. This means, if there’s a dish you’ve always wanted to be served at your wedding, you won’t have to jump through hoops to make that vision a reality. Maybe your fiance dropped down on one knee and proposed on the beaches of Mexico and you want to serve tacos and margaritas at your reception—either venue can make it happen!
Gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, vegetarian—your wedding menu can also reflect whatever special dietary requests you have to ensure you and your guests can enjoy a meal that suits your needs AND your taste buds!
The wedding planning process is a dream, but I know it can seem overwhelming at times. There’s decision after decision, like which photographer should you go with? Should your invitations be cream or ivory? Will the flowers match the table linens? Ugh, Cinderella didn’t have to make these decisions. Where is a fairy godmother when you need one? Trust me, I get it, and so does Events by Mistwood, which is why they provide you and your other half with a list of preferred, trusted vendors to help make all of your decisions a bit easier. They are there to assist with everything from florists and bakeries to hotels, entertainment, and stationery. Think of them as your event coordinator, or your fairy godmother, if you will, helping you solidify every last detail you’ve ever dreamed up for your big day.
Upscale Rehearsal Dinner
Events by Mistwood also has you covered for your rehearsal dinner, as well as any other private, wedding-related events you may need a space for. Located just outside the clubhouse, McWethy’s Scottish-inspired, upscale pub can provide semi-private space for small groups. When it comes time to raise your glass for a toast McWethy’s has you covered. You and your guests can choose from an extensive wine list as well as custom craft beer. The delicious tavern fare will not disappoint, either. The pub’s menu offers a variety of selections ranging from lamb flatbread and spiced candied bacon to breaded pork tenderloin, rainbow trout, and shrimp scampi, just to name a few.
