I'd give a 100 out of 5 stars if I could! Kory and I were so impressed with the professionalism and courtesy shown from every employee since we booked them last summer. Melissa, Ashley, Amy, Sam, caterers, bartenders, etc... they were all the reason our dream wedding came true. We had last minute table additions, needy bridal requests like napkin styles and layouts, and even a groom's ice cream cake meltdown (literally) that led to the staff delivering their own replacement cake in TEN MINUTES! Everyone was so accommodating to our guests, and they nailed our strict timeline. The food was absolutely phenomenal, and the serving staff cleaned up very quickly. I HIGHLY recommend the Courtyard for the perfect southern IL wedding. We are so grateful that we chose this venue

Build Your Own Package With so many services under one roof, your planning process just got easier; you can mix and match our services to meet your needs and budget. The number one question we hear when people inquire about our company is, "how much does an event cost," and the answer depends primarily on you. The things that will affect the price of your wedding the most are the: Guest Count Bar Details Catering Details Decor Choices Trying to give pricing over email or on the phone is much like trying to furnish a house or buy a car. How do we tell you what you will be paying if we don't know what all you want included? All pricing varies depending on what your overall event vision will be.
