Foody/Chasen Wedding -August 11th, 2018
We planned our wedding from another state. We researched dozens of venues online, but wound up only visiting Ravisloe. Even on the rainy October day we toured, the building’s history and beautiful architecture sold us. But the venue coordinator, Marcia, also made us feel comfortable from our first meeting. She cheerfully offered us advice about cakes before we put a dollar down. Her experience and thoughtful nature made planning from a distance 100% easier than it could have been. Marcia continued to be an invaluable resource during months of planning, answering emails, texts and phone calls within hours (usually minutes). She was so accommodating and helped us add personal touches throughout the event. By our wedding day, I knew I could simply hand the schedule over to her and our other vendors and enjoy the event. She ran our ceremony rehearsal, made sure our parents had drinks for dinner and literally ran across the room to retrieve balloons for a special birthday celebration during our reception. Guests at our August 2018 wedding (including my family of lifelong south suburbanites) raved about everything: the ivy-covered courtyard where we held the ceremony, the hors d’oeuvres and plated dinner and the service (including late-night pizza delivery). Sarah, the assistant coordinator at our wedding who stayed through the end of the night, also was wonderful. She brought us water during photos and delivered a plate of hors d’oeuvres to the bridal suite as my mom bustled my dress during cocktail hour. We feel so lucky to have stumbled on this gem. If you’re looking for a beautiful, historic venue with a fantastic team, you can’t do any better than Ravisloe.

We recommend Ravisloe Country Club 1000%! The beauty of the exterior and interior, to the food, to the attentiveness and professionalism of the staff, it doesn’t get any better. We were able to enjoy our day and the process leading up to it because of Ravisloe. The layout is unique in the room that will have guests talking and the food is exquisite and delicious. The grounds give you ample amount of photo opportunities for the bride, the couple, and the bridal party. Able to order late night food which is always a win for the guests. Beautiful reception site. We were not disappointed!
Leslie – February 7th, 2017
My daughter had her wedding at Ravisloe this past December. from beginning planning to the day of the wedding service was exceptional. The staff, especially Marcia , was willing to accommodate to let the bride have the wedding of her dreams. Guests raved about the food. The setting is beautiful even in the dead of winter. This is a unique venue.
Cari & Ryan Hoalt wedding – November 5th, 2016
Our wedding was at Ravisloe in Nov 2016 and I could not be happier that we chose that venue! We had both the ceremony and reception there and Marcia and her team went above and beyond to make our day perfect! It’s such a beautiful place with a lot of its own character that I fell in love at first sight. Very reasonably priced, especially compared to a lot of venues without as much to offer! Highly recommend!!!
Gia & Rich Weber wedding – October 15th, 2016
We got married at Ravisloe in Oct 2016 and it was great! Marcia and her team were amazing to work with – very responsive and willing to work with you to try to make everything perfect for your big day. My one necessity when it came to a venue was that it was a one-wedding-a-night venue. Ravisloe was perfect for that. We were able to utilize the entire venue to best suit our reception and it was just perfect! The food was amazing. The servers and bartenders were so nice. The building underwent some renovations over the summer and Marcia pushed hard for everything to be completed before our wedding date, which I can’t think her enough for! Overall, I would definitely recommend Ravisloe. 4 months later and we’re still receiving compliments from our guests on how great everything was!
Amanda & Jason Dockery Wedding – August 20th, 2016
Ravisloe was the perfect setting for our wedding. The grounds were gorgeous, the food selection was incredibly delicious (and complimented by several of our guests), the staff was courteous and attentive to our needs, and Marcia was fantastic to work with! We are completely satisfied with the way our wedding day went.
Kara and Mike Litton wedding – July 23, 2016
Mike and I want to thank you for all of your help with making our wedding day such a success! We had a great experience working with you and the Ravisloe Team. Wishing you continued success!
Kelsey and Kyle Barber wedding – July 9. 2016
“What can I say, the moment we walked into The Ravisloe for our tour we were hooked. The location is very surprising but take the risk and check it out. This place is a hidden gem! Marcia was absolutely incredible, so helpful and so responsive. If she was judging my wedding crazy self I had no idea… she helped me every step of the way! As for the venue itself, it’s a beautiful spanish inspired building with a beautiful golf course and beautiful grounds surrounding it. There is ivy with white flowers growing up the sides of the building where the outdoor ceremony site is located with beautiful arched windows surrounding the whole banquet hall overlooking the golf course and ceremony site. The cocktail hour room as well as the reception hall both have tall vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, it is a stunning building. If you plan on having your wedding here, make sure to block out the whole hotel La Banque and find other blocks way in advance as Tinley Park is a super busy area and 6 months was too late for us! The bridal suite has a lock code so it is safe for all of the ladies to leave their things all night. The premium bar was worth the extra cash as our guests would tell you, we had one heck of a party! The only reason I docked half of a star on value is because construction was being done on the tower of this beautiful building and the scaffolding is showing up in almost half of my outdoor pictures… I was so bummed that it was still up, yes, it can be cropped, but a lot of the draw to this venue was the beauty of the building, we spent a lot of money on a great photographer to capture it! BUT… I would definitely recommend The Ravisloe to any little girl who is looking to find her fairy tale wedding site!”

Liz & Neal Lyons wedding- December 12,2015
Our whole experience was absolutely perfect. I could not have dreamt up a more perfect day! You will always be a part of our wedding story and made the whole process as easy as possible. I never had a bit of worry knowing that you were behind the planning. You always made me feel like a person you care about, instead of just someone to make money off of. For every phone call, every bit of advice, and every “yes” to my requests- I thank you! Our big day wouldn’t be what it was without you!

We just wanted to take time to thank you again for making our special day so incredible. We will never forget how wonderful it was to work with you. We are still hoping to buy our first home in Homewood, so hopefully you will be seeing a lot more of us!
Martin and Cassie Acevedo
Patrick and I would like to thank you both so much for creating such a beautiful day for us. I felt at ease the whole day because you guys are pros. I received so many compliments about the venue choice and how helpful and nice everyone was. I really appreciate your help/guidance over the last few months, the peace of mind I had in Ravisloe’s part of my wedding day was more than I ever anticipated. Other vendors stop caring once the last check is given and I never felt like that once. You were more than 100% there for us the entire process until the end of the night. It is rare to find such amazing service and I thought all day long how happy I was with picking Ravisloe as our venue, it was by far the best day of my life, thank you.

We had our wedding reception at Ravisloe on September 25th and I would like to start by saying: THANK YOU all so much for helping to make our wedding reception AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL.

Thank you to Ravisloe for making our families’ wedding an event that will be remembered forever. The setting was breathtaking, the attention to detail impeccable, the food outstanding. Guests were impressed at every turn, and the reception ran smoothly with cocktails in the Great Room moving on to dinner in the Ballroom. The choice of entrees: steak, salmon, asparagus, roasted potatoes, made a beautiful presentation and tasted just as wonderful. Ravisloe’s talent for helping to make all our thoughts turn into reality was incredible. They created just what we were looking for in our visions for the day. The entire Ravisloe staff is to be thanked for making everything run so seamlessly. We know how much work must go into making that happen. We truly appreciate all of it and the memories will last a lifetime.
The Ahern and Browne Families
We just had our wedding at Ravisloe, and it was absolutely perfect! Everyone worked so hard to make sure that nothing went wrong, and nothing did! All staff members were so happy and willing to do anything that was asked of them. They worked efficiently to transform the ceremony room into the cocktail room, and they served dinner without a glitch. Ravisloe was a beautiful place to get married, and we would recommend it to anyone!
Wedding – June 25th, 2014
Words can’t even begin to express my gratitude to Ravisloe for the amazing wedding my daughter had on Saturday, June 25th in the courtyard of beautiful Ravisloe. From there on the magic extended to the cocktail area, and then to the elegant ballroom As any mother, I wanted to give my daughter the perfect day, and Ravisloe did it!!! From the moment we looked at it, we knew we found the right place for its history, structure and surrounding: a perfect setting. The customer service received was of the highest quality. All the staff did a perfect job from start to finish. The servers, the bartenders, everybody liked the bartenders!!!! We received a lot of compliments on the food, and the presentation of the dinner plates. The service again was impeccable. The bridal suite is so well designed, the courtyard so unique, and breath taking is the only word to describe the reception area. Thank you Ravisloe for a perfect venue, a perfect evening and a perfect service. You went far beyond our expectations to make my daughter’s wedding a memorable one.
I just knew that booking our event at Ravisloe was the right decision. We wanted a venue that was local, friendly, accommodating and elegant; and we got all that and more. The Ravisloe Team was fantastic. We asked and they delivered. The bar was perfect. The food was plentiful. The event staff provided excellent service. We all want to go back and throw another party. That’s when you know you have something special and Ravisloe truly is a special place.
Maria Pasquinelli / Development Committee Chairperson, Infant Jesus of Prague School Board
I can’t think of a more perfect place to have a wedding than Ravisloe. Being able to have the ceremony, cocktail reception and dinner all in one place was so convenient. The courtyard for the ceremony was by far the most beautiful spot we saw when looking around to choose a location. The indoor and outdoor space at Ravisloe is so unique, it truly provides a special place for a wedding. The golf course also provided a beautiful backdrop for our pictures. We can not thank the staff at Ravisloe enough for making sure our day went perfectly.
José & Jeannie Fernández
Thank you for taking such good care of our group. The Ravisloe team is one of the best around!
