Creek Bend Nature Center

Located in the LeRoy Oakes Forest Preserve in St. Charles, the Creek Bend Nature Center is a warm, natural setting for a wedding or party. The historic mansion of the 1930’s has been converted for use as a party venue and nature museum.

Outdoor weddings at Creek Bend are spectacular. Large green fields offer an inviting space for a ceremony. Or consider celebrating your nuptials beneath the giant tree, set apart from the mansion (be sure to rent a generator if you’re using recorded music or a microphone; there is no electrical power supply for about 300 feet).

You’ll arrange for your own catering and bar service; the venue doesn’t provide them, but it has a beautiful patio behind the mansion for cocktail hour. You may rent your own tent for a reception of as many as 300 guests, as long as you schedule its setup and removal with the venue in advance.

One thing to remember: your reception must be finished, and the venue must be fully cleaned up and closed by 11:30pm. So plan your start and end times to set aside ample cleanup time, and encourage your guests to volunteer their help in restoring the venue to its natural state. Just a few willing hands will make the job go fast.  

To complete the perfect day, choose professional Chicago wedding DJ entertainment by Fourth Estate Audio. Here’s a Facebook review of our work at the wedding you see below:

We loved our DJ! He loves what he does and it truly shows. He was professional and personable-the perfect combo! He was always quick to respond to any questions or changes that we had. He even went out of his way to make sure he had enough connections to have music for our outdoor ceremony. Everyone had a blast dancing to our music variety. It was so great to see everyone busting a move and having fun. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Fourth Estate Audio!
