My Husband & I used Events at Refinery to host our Rehearsal Dinner & it was absolutely fantastic! We had originally planned to have the dinner at another location & when plans unexpectedly fell through the Events at Refinery Team were there to help me all the way! Working with her was so easy & we received so many compliments on the evening! I couldn't have imagined a better place to host our family friends and to kick off our wedding weekend! The staff was kind & professional and I didn't have to worry about a thing! I would recommend this venue to any and all Brides-to-be! Thank you! Thank you!

The Refinery is an amazing place to have your wedding reception. The staff is friendly, helpful, and flexible. I had a completely stress-free wedding because they did all the decorating, coordinating, and clean up for me. The banquet room(s) are a blank canvas that you can decorate to whatever color scheme/theme you have. I am so happy I chose this location over a country club and have the beautiful pictures to prove it!

Refinery did an amazing job helping our wedding day to be fantastic! They did everything for us so that we did not have to worry about a single thing at the reception the day of the wedding. It was a relief knowing that we could just focus on enjoying being a newlywed couple! The room rental was a little pricey considering that we had over 300 guests but it was well worth it knowing that the Refinery was taking care of all of our details for us! Thanks so much for making our wedding day such a blast, we had the time of our lives!

Working with the staff at the Refinery was absolutely the best! I can't even remember the number of times I emailed them with a million questions and they were always there to offer advice and the help I needed. Especially the month before the wedding they were really helpful making sure all the specifics were taken care of and even helped me come up with a signature cocktail for the night. Absolutely everything looked amazing and I can't think of anything that I would have changed about my experience there.

The Refinery helped guide us through the reception planning step by step. They were willing and able to help us create the reception we desired. The reception was beautiful and the service excellent. The Refinery banquet area is very classy on its own so didn't need extensive decorating. They helped make our day enjoyable and relaxing.

Wonderful. The Events at Refinery Team was efficient, inviting, kind, super fun to work with, and extremely classy + accommodating. You know it's a wonderful atmosphere, when those who work for the environment/venue are as near as the attendees. We had both the ceremony and reception at the Refinery, and it was a huge win for multiple reasons. I suggest it! Thanks so much to the Events at Refinery Team in Champaign, IL. It was my first choice from the beginning, and there was never a comparison made to any other location or service which caused me to waver. Truly awesome. We are glad for you!

We could not be happier with our experience hosting out Wedding Reception at The Refinery. Through out entire planning process of one year, the entire team was readily accessible and helpful- even with my demanding work schedule out of town. When the week of the wedding came, The Refinery eased my nerves the day we dropped off our massive amount of decorations. It felt amazing that the weight was off of my shoulders and I had complete trust that they would make everything look perfect. AND THEY DID! Not only that, they made sure that all vendors were in place and everything was up to their and our standards. We were completely in awe of the decorations, service, bar service, and overall quality of our reception and could not have imagine a more amazing night. The Refinery ensure everyone was happy, from our grandparents to the rowdy bridal party! We highly recommend the entire Events at Refinery team (the bar tenders are awesome too!!!) and will continue to recommend them to all of our family and friends planning weddings and events!

Sabra & Dagan, Bride and Groom

Steffanie, I thank you for all you did. Mostly, I thank you for feeling like a friend, someone I could count on through all the details and especially the craziness of that day. I think it was beautiful, and your knowing how to put it all together for me was the main ingredient. I couldn't see the big picture, but you made it all come together.

I was impressed by your service, your attention to detail, the promptness and clarity of your communication, your expertise and experience, and your being my ally. If everyone feels as lost as I did through this whole process, they will appreciate what the Refinery has to offer. Without you I couldn't have pulled it off. Thank you.

Janet, Mother of the Bride

Events at Refinery, Thank you soooo much for every little thing you did to make our wedding day absolutely perfect! People often say, "I couldn't have done it without you." But in this case it's literally true. We loved working with you and our parents loved that every question or concern you replied, "No problem!"

Wendy and Brad, Bride and Groom
