Joliet Ceremony

We booked our hall this weekend! I am very excited! And nervous at the same time! I haven't yet booked our ceremony location. I think I did  the booking backwards :) The place where we want to have our ceremony, Birdhaven Greenhouse in Joliet, the 3:30 time slots are completely filled for the whole month! They do have 1:30 available, however our reception will not start til 6. That seems like a pretty big time difference between the ceremony and reception. I don't know what the typical/ acceptable time is between ceremony and reception.  Does anyone else know of any other outdoor ceremony (only) sites in or close to Joliet?

    Jacob Henry Mansion can host an outdoor ceremony, also Barber and Oberwortmann Horticulture Center/Pilcher Park.

    Do you know if Jacob Henry Mansion will do a ceremony there if the reception is not there as well? I think the Barber and Oberwortmann Horticulture Center/Pilcher Park is where receptions are held? The Birdhaven Greenhous is at the same place and is where ceremonies are done.

    I know you can do just ceremony in their church, so I dont see why they wouldnt do a ceremony on their newly renovated grounds.  Give them a call, they are a great bunch to work with.

    I second the Jacob Henry.. Although me and LIB are both getting married there! Im positive you can do just the ceremony with them as I know other brides have done it.  Also, the birdhaven greenhouse is great! I took my engagement photos there and a family member of mine got married there as well.  Both are good ideas!
