...down on the farm

Begin your happily ever after

Weddings at the Barn

For 100 years and four generations, Siegel’s Cottonwood Farm has been a place where memories are created, and the ideal venue for your rustic elegant wedding in Chicagoland.

The beautiful, all-natural and picturesque setting of The Farm will have you falling in love all over again, while creating an enchanting celebration that is memorable for you, your wedding party and guests.

We want it to be as EFFORTLESS and STRESS FREE as possible for our couples.  The Barn at Cottonwood offers more than just a beautiful setting for your big day, it provides an experience for your friends and family to remember for a lifetime.

Setting The Scene


Cocktails and appetizers are enjoyed by guests in our outdoor Straw Bale Lounge, while you and your spouse capture stunning wedding photos that will bring back the magic of your special day for years to come – like stealing kisses in the corn maze or walking hand in hand in the field for the first time as husband and wife.

Photo Opps

Guests will have a blast snapping and sharing photos on our pink tractor, oversized porch swing and rocking chair. There are endless photo opportunities with the beautiful backdrop of our rustic farm atmosphere.


In our BARN, tables are set with burlap and lace runners while decorative wine bottles and mason jars display fresh cut flowers. An 8-ft Swarovski crystal chandelier is complimented by bistro lighting, decorative whiskey barrels and the aromas of a deliciously catered meal, invite guests into the celebration feast, while the band quietly plays.

After Sunset

Dance the night away under the country sky, toss your bouquet from the loft of The BARN then, end your perfect day on the farm around a relaxing bon fire with a final toast to your new life together.


The scenes above are just some examples of the endless possibilities our wedding venue can offer. We want each event to be as unique as the couple sharing their precious moments with us.
