Description:

Nestled in The Grove, a historic landmarked nature preserver, the Redfield Estate was erected as the home of one of The Grove’s first settlers. The historic house’s picturesque Prairie style architecture is intended to simulate idyllic cottages in the northern European countryside, making it an ideal location for romantic vintage style weddings.

 

We accommodate weddings averaging 100 guests in warm weather when you will enjoy our outdoor Pavilion, and 50 to 75 in cold weather when you will likely be inside the historic house. Our maximum capacity is 125 outdoors in the Pavilion for cocktail style events with few to no tables.

 

Imagine saying your “I do’s” beneath the shade of a wooden gazebo and towering trees, in front of our 125 year old majestic Oak tree, or anywhere on the grounds, or evening inside the Pavilion or house. An outdoor patio is ideal for cocktails before proceeding to the covered outdoor stone Pavilion for your reception, or small celebrations may move inside the house for the reception, making use of the awe-inspiring Great Room where you will mingle in front of the fireplace, dance beneath the towering cathedral ceilings, and dine as you enjoy the sights outside of the spectacular two-story glass window. The Redfield Estate is a model venue for couples seeking historic charm.

 

Private rentals include use of our historic home, gorgeous grounds, a covered outdoor pavilion, a gazebo tucked into the forest, and all tables and chairs. Enchanting strings of bistro lights and two gas fireplaces add to the charm.

 

Choose from eight outstanding catering companies contracted with us to assist you with details planning your event, including your menu, bar, service staff, linen and equipment. Full service catering averages $100 to $125 per person, in addition to your rental fee. We also offer a “Ceremony Only” option with four hours of private use of the estate, along with complimentary setting of chairs at your choice of location on the grounds, in the Gazebo or Pavilion, or inside the house. The house and grounds offer amazing options for your wedding photographer to capture your day.
