With 10 acres of breath-taking award-winning gardens, model train layouts and museum, and a large sparkling lake, Wandering Tree Estate transports you into an unforgettable realm of beauty and wonder. The unique all-outdoor setting allows you and your guests to enjoy your big day surrounded by tropical flowers and rare plants and trees – on your very own private estate. We asked HL Silets, General Manager, Wandering Tree Estate to share a few facts about his venue and why it’s the perfect choice for couples planning their big day or sweet occasion.

Why are you called Wandering Tree Estate?

Many years ago, Elaine (the owner of Wandering Tree), had visions to build a swimming pool to relax in during the summer. There was one small issue – a massive tree was in the way! The appointment to relocate the tree was scheduled, yet nobody showed up. After waiting for the tree movers to to arrive a call came in unexpectedly. The tree movers confirmed they had moved the tree…however, it turns out that the movers relocated somebody else’s tree by mistake! Hence the name Wandering Tree.

Where is Wandering Tree Estate Located?

We are located in the lush northern suburb of Barrington Illinois, however our exact address is withheld to ensure privacy.

What is unique about your venue?

There are a million reasons why Wandering Tree Estate is unique, but I would have to say our gardens are the #1 reason. They are also Instagram ready and will blow you and your guests away. There are endless locations for photo-opportunities by our expansive lake and even a country club style pool for cocktails. With a maximum capacity of 50 guests, we offer the most luxurious experience for an intimate wedding or specil occasion providing a larger than life experience on a private estate. We event have a sweet Bridal Cottage for the bridal party to relax and refresh throughout the day. Other featured amneities include an on-site manager and electrician to keep your event running smoothly and a hand picked list of vendors vetted by us for a custom experience. However we do allow for outside vendors to fit couples needs.

Are you a public venue?

No, Wandering Tree Estate is a private venue. We do have private garden walks to the public that take place in the summer season. However every event is singular and private. You are the only event taking place on the estate. We give by appointment only walkthroughs which can be made directly through our website.
