White Hawk Country Club – Crown Point, Indiana
Outdoor weddings are becoming more and more popular as brides choose to ditch the traditional church in favor of more natural surroundings on their day. And who can blame them, really? Natural light, green grass, blooming trees, and colorful flowers can only serve to make any wedding a beautiful occasion.
For all those Chicagoland brides looking to marry in the great outdoors, a White Hawk Country Club wedding is all they could ever want. A beautifully manicured lawn unfolds from the ceremony site, providing a lush green backdrop that eventually meets an equally lush tree line. The colors blend together to create a vivid, picturesque display in front of which any bride would glow. As the ceremony site is located on the country club’s golf course, the event is open-air which gives it a light, dreamy quality. The words “stuffy” or “crowded” will never cross the guests’ minds as they enjoy the beautiful outdoors. Flowing fountains and vibrant floral arrangements only further add to the fantastic atmosphere of this venue.
White Hawk has much to offer both the bridal party and guests alike, as those in town for the wedding can enjoy a golf outing on their down time, or the groomsmen can make it a bachelor-party event. The club also boasts a delicious restaurant, River Rock Restaurant, which is a perfect spot for a pre-wedding luncheon or a rehearsal dinner. The bride and her maids will love to lunch together at River Rock after a trip to the salon, or the entire party can enjoy a golf outing in the days prior to the wedding. White Hawk Country Club has so much to offer, it’s more than just a wedding venue. It’s a wedding experience.
An outdoor ceremony at White Hawk Country Club can take place on the facility’s 2,000 square foot patio, a space boasting plenty of room for guests to be seated comfortably, as well as allowing them to stroll around prior to the ceremony. A beautiful white gazebo is the crown jewel of the outdoor space and a perfect place for the couple to become man and wife. The pure white color of the gazebo will perfectly accent the bride’s pristine wedding gown, allowing for lovely photographs. The expansive golf course is a breath-taking backdrop to any White Hawk Country Club ceremony.
Receptions can also be held outdoors should the bride want her entire day to take place in nature, but the most popular choice at White Hawk is the sizable banquet hall. This space can still satisfy a nature-loving bride, as massive windows surround the room, providing excellent views of the outlying lawns and gardens. Natural light can also fill the room through these windows, making any wedding photographer happy! The banquet hall is newly renovated and quite lovely, and it provides enough space for up to 250 guests. Receptions at White Hawk Country Club in Crown Point will be beautiful to behold, whether indoor or outdoor. The great thing about this venue is that the wedding guests don’t actually have to be outdoors in order to appreciate the elegance of nature.
