"My Husband and I knew we wanted a country-themed wedding. We knew we didn’t want to have the wedding in a church because that is just not us and we had a friend of ours get ordained to marry us. We called the Stephenson County Fairgrounds and talked to Lori. Their prices for a building, tables and chairs were way better than a tent rental company for just a tent, so we decided to go with the fairgrounds. There is plenty of parking and we rented out the Commercial 1 building. There was plenty of room for everything for the reception. For the ceremony, we did that right outside the building in the grass. We were able to come the day before the wedding to set up. Jerry, the groundskeeper, was so much help. During set-up we were short one straw bale and Jerry helped us out again. The day of the wedding everything went smoothly. Two separate bathrooms were open for us and our guests to use. We were able to get some great wedding pictures at the fairgrounds. The next day we were able to come back and clean everything up, so we didn’t have to tear down everything that night. Overall it was a great experience. Lori and Jerry were both great to work with and made my dream wedding come true."
