We are so glad we had our wedding and reception here! It was the first place we toured and we fell in love with the historic charm and cozy space. The professionalism of the employees here, especially Tricia and Sue, is unmatched. They are both so kind and helpful, answering all our questions and making sure everything went exactly the way we envisioned.
Things we loved about Cheney:
-you can have your ceremony inside or out!
-it’s BYOB which means you can buy your own alcohol or order it from Binnys and the bartenders will serve it. Saves SO much money by not paying per person for an open bar
-the staff are incredibly nice and helpful. Having them took so much stress away!
-there is a bridal getting ready room AND a groom getting ready room. Other places we looked at had no space for the men.
Overall, we would highly recommend Cheney. There was nothing we didn’t love about having our wedding there!!
We had our January 2022 winter wedding at Cheney Mansion. The venue is absolutely beautiful and was exactly what we were looking for in terms of a vintage setting. It's a beautiful unique space, the staff were helpful, and we enjoyed working with their recommended catering vendor as well.
As I approached my 50th birthday, I wanted to find a venue that was classy, elegant, and close to home. The Cheney Mansion fit the bill, perfectly! Over 200 of my family members and friends were able to celebrate my birthday in this beautiful Oak Park landmark home. The wonderful staff were incredibly helpful and accommodating. I highly recommend renting the Cheney Mansion for weddings or parties!
It's a beautiful place! I just love it the rooms are so big and the architecture is gorgeous. I have been to several functions there and love it more and more every time!
The staff was professional, polite and helped in any way to make the event I assisted with and attended a wonderful experience. The mansion itself was beautiful and was like you had slipped back in time. I hope to use them for My 50th birthday party.
