Arabian Knight's Farm

A Country Wedding at "The Barn"

If you are planning a Beautiful Country Wedding and want a unique facility for outdoor ceremonies in the Western Chicagoland area, you should consider "The Barn" at Arabian Knights Farm in Willowbrook, Illinois located just west of Chicago. Following your ceremony in the gazebo, you can go directly to your wedding reception in our large banquet room which can facilitate over 500 guests.

Our facilities have 10 wooded acres with a 4.5 acre park and a large Cedar Gazebo which is perfect for a outdoor Country Wedding Ceremony. Your reception would be held in our indoor Country Western Show Arena, with a 1200 sq. ft. Dance Floor, 24 ft. x 12 ft. Stage with the Disco Lighting and Pro Light Show. The Wedding party will be able to use the AKF Sky Box Suite over looking the wedding reception. Our on site AKF Chefs can accomodate up to 500 guest whether you desire a Buffet or a Formal sit down Dinner.

Planning an event such as a Country Wedding Ceremony and Reception and if you are looking for a Unique Venue that can accommodate from 25 to 500 guests or more, AKF Entertainment & "The Barn" at Arabian Knights Farms is available for you. We offer Indoors and Outdoor Facilities outing of any size. We handle all of the details for your Wedding Reception and Ceremony on site planning so you don't have too.

Over the years, we have seen our Wedding Reception and Ceremony Market (women who are between the ages of 19 and 34) redefine their "Dream Day" in so much as they seek a wedding that is "something different and unique". The modern day brides-to-be seem to be seeking a venue and planning an event that more accurately represents their age-group lifestyle. Extravagant floral budgets, pretentious stretched limousines and ostentatious gourmet presentations of the past are losing ground to a more "down to earth" event theme. Gone is the assumption that today’s bride will be married in an ornate church with a reception to follow at a different location hours later and in a facility with polished marble floors and sparkling crystal chandeliers. Brides today are tuned in to and turned on by a wedding ceremony and reception event that defines and more closely aligns with whom they are.

This has been the catalyst behind a wedding venue that has been open for over 30 years known as "The Barn" at Arabian Knights Farms and AKF Entertainment. This is the only private Country Wedding Venue in the Chicagoland Area of this type. A new and very strong trend in outdoor weddings and receptions being held at one location. Nearly two out of every three brides who have visited our Wedding Venue have reserved a date to be married here. Our brides seem to want a casual atmosphere unique and beautiful, cost conscious rental parameters, stunning facilities with attention to detail, simple, country green oriented and more of a family reunion or holiday celebration type outdoor event. The wedding industry is gravitating back toward the old fashioned values of family, friends, fun, faith and freedom.

The by-gone days of "Bigger is Better" are ending. With this new mindset perhaps Bride and Groom can save thousands of dollars that will give them a solid financial start to their marriage.

"The Barn" is on a 10 wooded acres site with a 5-acre Park and Gazebo for your Wedding Ceremony. "The Barn" and AKF Entertainment offers a Indoor Show Arena and Reception Hall, with a 1200 sq. ft. Dance Floor, 24 ft. x 12 ft. Concert Stage with the Disco Lighting and Pro Light Show, a Jumbotron Movie Screen for a Wedding Montage of photos of the Bride and Groom through the years and for the AKF Multi Media Video DJ.
