Hello Fellow OPers!


My fiance and are getting married on September 10 at a local church and looking for a good place to do our wedding pictures. We're trying to find something that has a nice, flowering setting and is ideally in Oak Park but could be anywhere between here and O'Hare.


Anyone have any good recommendations??


Thanks in advance for all of your help!

The Oak Park and Garfield conservatories are easy places to start. You might need a permit if you're not having your reception or ceremony there.


One example: http://www.edytaszyszlo.com/blog/2009/06/05/lisa-randys-real-weddin...


From Facebook: We have friends who had their pictures taken in Columbus Park (on the other side of Austin) and it's gorgeous. You can also try the OP conservatory or even the Garfield. They also usually have lovely flowers in Scoville Park, though I am not sure that's what you are looking for...
Dominican University in River Forest has beautiful gardens at the Priory Campus at Division and Harlem and amazing gothic features at the main campus at Division and Thatcher. 
Thanks everyone for the awesome ideas. We're going to walk/drive around this weekend to check them out. We will let you know where we land! Thanks all!!
My spouse and I got married in July of 2010.  We took a few pictures at the Pleasant Home and at the Cheney Mansion.  Both places are well kept and the Cheney Mansion had a particularly large hydrangea bush that is in nearly all of our outdoor photos.  The Cheney mansion's website is here and Pleasant Home's website is here.  Have an enjoyable wedding weekend!
