Barber Oberwortmann Horticultural Center Wedding Joliet

Barber Oberwortmann Horticultural Center WeddingIf you’re searching for a modern exhibition hall with an adjacent greenhouse on historic grounds, this event is for you.The Barber & Oberwortmann Horticultural Center is adjacent to the Birdhaven Greenhouse and located in Fairmount Park. This Horticultural Center is the perfect location for your intimate indoor or large-scale outdoor event. This incredible venue couples with Cutting Edge Catering, an exclusive caterer crafting custom menus. Cutting Edge Catering offers impeccable service and locally sourced products. Hence, the Barber Oberwortmann Horticultural Center wedding was indeed perfect in every way.

To begin with, the Barber Oberwortmann Horticultural Center wedding was held in the Bird Haven Greenhouse, and it was hot. In fact, our performers would tell you it was 90F hot playing Can’t Help Falling in Love by Elvis Presley as the bride walked down the aisle. Needless to say, it was a short ceremony.  There were no traditional wedding choices for this recessional. As soon as vows were exchanged, Felix and Fingers kicked into an upbeat version of Now That We Found Love by Heavy D & The Boyz. Guests quickly lined up behind the bride and groom forming a line directly to the (air conditioned) Horticultural Center.

A Chocolate Lover’s Dream

Barber Oberwortmann Horticultural Center WeddingFelix and Fingers had a hunch I Wanna Dance With Somebody by Whitney Houston would pack the dance floor during cocktail hour. They were right! We also threw in a few requests such as You Make My Dreams by Hall & Oates and Happy by Pharrell William, making sure everyone was….you got it, HAPPY!! Between the chocolate roses on each guest’s plate and the custom made white chocolate and rose wedding cake, it was a chocolate lover’s dream. Would you believe Cutting Edge Catering even created an AMAZING dark chocolate mole sauce for the mouthwatering steak enchiladas? They were THE BEST enchiladas we’ve EVER tasted!

Things got a little wild after speeches and first dances. Seems to us there was some icing going on under the table. It was funny to watch the head table try passing bottles of Smirnoff without spilling. We though this was the perfect moment for an interactive dance off. After splitting the room in two (guys vs gals), we asked them to show us what they had to Skibidi by Little Big. More than half of each group knew the moves. One of the Barber Oberwortmann Horticultural Center wedding guests decided on performing special turbo moves, resulting in a memorable fall. Nobody hurt, just an ego.
