The Nagel Emporium at Abbey Farms




Rustic and chic wedding receptions blossom at the Ken and Carole Nagel Emporium at Abbey Farms. Specializing in private events, the 100-year-old reclaimed wood barn boasts 8,000 square feet of space to customize and scale your wedding. Up to 330 of your loved ones may crowd under the red barn’s widespread doors to celebrate the first day of the rest of your life. Elegant chandeliers and twinkling lights strung from the rafters weave an atmosphere of sophisticated charm, dedicated dance floor and cocktail lounge add a flavor of lively festivity. Antique, iron-wrought furnishings and wooden barrels decorate the main hall to retain the genuine and endearing barn-house ambiance. Deck your wedding with vibrant flowers, or venture out onto the outdoor patio to take in the stunning views of the Fox River Valley. Couples may sip on the drinks of their choice as they listen to tolling of bells on gentle hills and snuggle close to each other around the outdoor fireplace. Few venues will surpass the perfection of this graceful country setting.
