Interested in holding your wedding or event at Cuneo Mansion & Gardens? ....Find out what our clients have to say.
I just wanted to send you an email to thank you, the Bauers, and your staff for a lovely day. For an off-site meeting, you made things so easy. I do this often, and everyone involved was incredibly patient, kind, helpful and professional in meeting our every need. The mansion is incredible and your service ran parallel. If there is ever a chance to book with you again, I will be sure to do it, and will definitely attempt to send business your way!

I first just wanted to say thank you so much for all of the hard work you did to make my day perfect. Everyone was talking about how beautiful the Gardens and Mansion was and how perfect everything looked. I couldn’t have asked for a better day, location, vendors, etc.
I have attached three pictures of the mansion from our photographer. I will also forward you the link to the rest of the pictures next week when he sends them. The mansion is gorgeous in these shots!

We hosted my daughters wedding at The Cuneo Mansion in September of this year (2012) and it was simply a spectacular event. The grounds of mansion were phenomenal for hosting an outdoor ceremony where all of the guests had a wonderful view of the mansion and gardens behind the site of the actual wedding ceremony. After the ceremony, the guests made their way up to the outdoor terrace for cocktails and appetizers. The setting was terrific for this piece of the event and again, the views over-looking the gardens for everyone was stunning. The bartenders and servers on the terrace could not have been nicer and the appetizers were mouth-watering. This terrace and its views lent a very special quality to the reception’s proceedings.
The event then adjourned indoors for the dinner reception and the new main dining room at Cuneo is extremely nice. It easily handled our 220 guests and looked wonderful for the dinner and dancing that followed. Again, the wait staff and bartenders did a phenomenal job, with several people commenting about how the servers were almost unnoticeable which is the ultimate compliment. And the food- what can I say about the sensational job that Bauer Catering did with the food. Eddie and Mary Bauer were on top of their game with every piece of the menu, drawing rave reviews. So many people came up to me and said this food was some of the best they have ever had at a wedding and felt the food was a major part of what turned out to be a truly wonderful evening. The weather was so nice that we were able to have a Cigar & Scotch Bar out on the terrace following dinner that was the perfect way, coupled with some high energy dancing on the dance floor, to top off this very special evening at Cuneo.
The event was so well coordinated by the Cuneo staff, under the watchful eye of Zuzi Williams from Bauer’s Catering, that there was not one issue that arose during the evening and I had a large number of guests come up and personally tell me that this was the best wedding they had ever been to. Zuzi takes a personal interest in making sure a wedding happens according to plan! While having wonderful guests in attendance helped make the evening memorable, the ambiance created by every aspect of the Cuneo facility is what made this a night to remember for all of us, especially the Bride & Groom.
I would recommend hosting a wedding at The Cuneo Mansion and having Bauer’s Catering handle all of the reception related items to anyone that is looking to make their big day truly memorable!

I just had to write and let you know how fabulous the Cuneo Venue was for Jessica’s wedding. The grounds, flowering gardens, mansion and dining hall were absolutely beautiful. Everything was outstanding and guests are sill raving abut the site and Bauer’s food! The wedding cake from Oak Mill Bakery was awesome too! Your knowledge about every detail made planning a breeze.
Mary Bauer was a pleasure to work with and the food presentation was lovely. I can’t wait to use Cuneo again!
Thank YOU for everything.

Thank you for everything regarding Colleen’s and Kevin’s wedding. Don left a Brooks Brothers white shirt and someone borrowed Emily’s phone charger and left in either the bride or grooms room. Did you perhaps find them?
Other than the transportation and the problems with the Marriott Lincolnshire, everything was perfect. All my friends loved the food and the setting. Thanks for all your hard work.

Thank you so much for everything last night. What a beautiful and fun wedding! The grounds were gorgeous, everything looked great, and the food was fabulous.. From the appetizers to sweet table , everything was the right temperature and delicious. My guests thought I had hired a wedding planner…. But I didn’t need one, because I had Zuzi. She is beyond fabulous… Not just efficient, she is kind, fun, and warm… WE LOVE ZUZI…
Thanks for everything. We couldn’t be more pleased….

“A heartfelt thank you to you, the staff, and volunteers who coordinated such a wonderful event yesterday at the Cuneo Mansion and Gardens. Every detail showed careful planning and attention to making the Open House a memorable experience. Learning about the facilities, services, and accommodations was particularly informative. Knowing that there are professional resources available and readily accessible in the community is most reassuring for planning future events.
Although I breezed through the mansion very quickly, I had a wonderful conversation with one of the docents, Ginger, in the Mansion. She was delightful and communicated an impressive depth of knowledge about the history of the Cuneo family and objects d’ art that were on display. Also, I met a few representatives from the Visitor’s Center, including Teresa Lewis who advised me that her team assists corporate groups with their event planning.
From my perspective, the performance of the entire team was exemplary. Everyone was friendly, helpful, and professional. Thank you for inviting me and I will share the information from the Open House with my colleagues in consideration of future events.

A huge Thank you to you and your staff for making our event a success. You really understood our needs and made every arrangement with your staff to accommodate us. The food and service were excellent and I would not hesitate to highly recommend Bauer’s Catering and the Cuneo Mansion. I hope to work with you again for another Illinois Bone and Joint seminar.

I just wanted to reach out to you to tell you what a wonderful experience we had meeting with Eddie Bauer to discuss details of the 2012 GLMV Gala at Cuneo. We love working with long standing businesses that truly care about their community and clients, and Bauer’s Catering is clearly that and more. We look forward to reviewing your proposal and working with you for many years to come. Have a wonderful day!

Good morning Zuzi,
First of all we wanted to compliment you, Erin Thomson and Mary Bauer for a wonderful experience for Matt and Melissa’s wedding on Saturday. The weather was perfect, the food was fantastic and the assistance we were given during the event has top notch. From running the movie to helping my 96 year old father with a ride back to the ceremony to getting him a cab ride back to the motel. I am still receiving compliments from folks that attended. Give everyone a pat on the back! We feel like we’re all old friends now.
Thank you again!
Matt and Melissa, Janet and Ken Griffard, Dennis and Adele Odom

Can’t believe the special day is over and behind us. I want to send this message to you personally to let you know how very much I appreciate all you and the staff did for my daughter.

It was a true pleasure working with you and a big hug to your husband for filling in on short notice . My daughter is my world and I am so happy she got the dream wedding she deserves.
Please extend this thank you to all who deserve it. My best to you! Have a great year!!
