Is your wedding vibe classic with a bit of romantic and a touch of modern? Then Barrington’s White House is so you! From top to bottom, this historic wedding venue has vintage charm with modern conveniences like a private Bridal Suite. Its elegant architectural detailing and lots of natural light provide a stunning backdrop for magical, memorable photos.

This unique space is intimate and private. (You’ll be the only couple that evening.) It’s elegant, yet approachable. With a subtle palette so you only need a few simple touches to make it your own! Perfect for smaller weddings for up to 130 guests, encore weddings and unions—we welcome all!

Invite guests into “your home.” The grand entryway features a spectacular, restored Waterford crystal chandelier and graceful landings accented by artisan-designed beveled glass windows. The entire mansion has been meticulously restored, with gold accents and lots of warm wood and private spaces so guests feel welcomed.

Option to host both your ceremony and reception. This three-story mansion offers a private floor with a Bridal Suite, a Groom’s Room on the main floor, and the first floor for cocktail time. The elegant ballroom is a spectacular space for your ceremony, dinner and dancing. It’s all yours to enjoy!

An exquisite venue for any of your wedding celebrations. It’s the heart of Barrington, Illinois, in Chicago’s northwest suburbs.

The historic mansion was the perfect backdrop to our memorable day…spacious and elegant, yet warm and cozy.

Mix and mingle with your guests as you sip fabulous cocktails and nibble delicious hors d’oeuvres throughout the first-floor rooms. The formal rooms are naturally beautiful, trimmed with gorgeous oak, leaded windows and high ceilings. Guests can enjoy conversation, then wind their way up the quarter-turn staircase to the third-floor ballroom to continue the celebration.

I was looking for something different. I love the idea of having multiple interesting spaces for guests to enjoy.

Think beyond a traditional hotel or banquet hall! Our ballroom offers dramatic 16-foot arched ceilings, luxe chandeliers and glam accents like gold sconces and beautiful brocade drapery. The subtle yet sophisticated palette will complement your wedding décor—whatever you choose. Romantic and elegant, a brilliant mix of historic charm and modern amenities.

Choose the set-up and dining arrangement that works best for you. Gorgeous gold Chiavari chairs are standard. There’s room for a dance floor, band or DJ, and we’re wired for sound and video, so you can play your own music or special presentations.

What a unique and stunning venue! Impeccably restored, highlighting the beautiful architectural details. A magical, memorable and stress-free day!

Come early and hang out with your besties before the ceremony! Our spacious, private Bridal Suite has plenty of room to relax and get ready before the big event. Enjoy the mirrored hair and make-up counter with seating for three. Relax and sip champagne on our comfy sofa and chairs. And utilize the private luxuriously designed bathrooms. It’s a tranquil haven for you and your bridal party. Our “something blue” for you!

It was so fun spending time with my bridesmaids there before the ceremony began.

Want a glam location for your dinner or party? Let us play host to your wedding festivities before and after the big day. Our ballroom offers an exquisite, timeless setting for your rehearsal dinner. Then move to the first floor for a welcome reception to celebrate with other special friends and out-of-town guests. Our elegant house can be your home for the night. Or consider a postwedding brunch as a final thank you to family and friends.

The PERFECT rehearsal dinner/welcome drinks venue! A warm and inviting vibe…
