Julie- March 2015
The daunting task of finding a beautiful venue, friendly to the budget with top notch food and service seemed like it would be impossible. We didn't want a "vanilla" reception hall - we wanted something extraordinary. First thing I found in my research is that this does not exist unless you have over $150/person to spend. My fiancee' and I know how to enjoy good food and service. We found Kemper Lakes Golf Club! The reception is held in a room with full height windows in all directions, surrounded by the golf club and flowers, wrapped by an outdoor patio. The look speaks for itself - go visit!
The food was not "reception food". This was our main concern. We wanted great food, not even good food, great food. The food on our wedding day was much better even than that we had at the tasting - how did they do that??? I read other reviews saying this and thought, ha, yeah right. Well believe it ladies and gents. Food is great.
The service - I won't venture to call Jessica service. Outside of being an absolute pleasure to deal with, she is thorough, you can tell she does this every day, she has a naturally calming effect because she's truly calm - she has everything handled. Jessica knows exactly what she is doing and it shows. Every question was answered (quickly - even when she was on vacation), she asked us questions and helped us find the answers to things we didn't even know about, she took care of everything for us prior to the event, the day of the event, we were truly treated like a King and Queen. We have Jessica to thank for being able to tell our friends and family that our wedding was The Best Day of Our Lives! (so far)

I could not have dreamed of a better wedding location. Jessica made sure that everything was absolutely perfect! I never wanted to get married outside, but after one look at the venue, I knew I had to have my wedding here AND the ceremony. The grounds are beautiful and were the best setting for our photos. Everything was well organized and Jessica was amazing at keeping us updated and sending reminders on everything. There was no possibility of forgetting anything. Jessica was easy to work with and really understood exactly what I had envisioned. The food was amazing, and everyone commented that it was the best food that they had ever had at a wedding. We met several times to discuss plans and the set-up, and everything from the rehearsal to the night of the wedding went flawless. I could not recommend this venue enough. My family has hosted several banquets and events here, and they never fail to impress everyone in the room.

Kemper Lakes was our dream location. We wanted to be married outside but other golf clubs we looked at were too up-it and manicured. We loved the rustic feel of Kemper Lakes. We were married under the willow trees and it was the perfect location. So many guests came up to us saying that the view in every direction was beautiful and that they loved the setting. We also loved that our guest could just walk a few feet to cocktails on the patio and then right inside for the reception. The food was also great. Gail and Jessica made everything so easy. Jessica gave me a great pep talk right before I walked down the aisle =). Everything was perfect.
