Weddings at North Central College

Congratulations on your engagement. We thank you for considering historic North Central College and are honored to be a part of this special occasion. Our most popular wedding location is Koten Chapel.  Built in 1912, Koten Chapel was completely renovated in 2006, preserving its historic significance, but adding modern amenities, to make it a memorable setting for your marriage vows. Adorned with simple elegance...cathedral ceilings, magnificent stained-glass windows, and dark oak details, the Chapel creates a warm and intimate setting for couples expecting 150 guests.  We also have other venues on campus that have served well as a location for wedding ceremonies. State of the art Wentz Concert Hall and historic Meiley/Swallow Hall Thrust Theater have been utilized on numerous occasions for beautiful wedding ceremonies. Simply contact the Office of Conference Services for more information regarding these and other alternative ceremony locations.

Wedding planning is full of minute details that can get overwhelming. We want to make your site arrangements as easy as possible. There are four simple steps to securing one of our fine locations for your nuptials:

  1. Visit our web site, key word wedding or call our Conference Services office at 630-637-5497.
  2. The program director will contact you to verify date availability and arrange a meeting to tour our multiple options and discuss decorating ideas and other policies.
  3. If you decide that Koten Chapel, Meiley Swallow Hall, or Wentz Concert Hall would make the right setting for your wedding, you will be asked to sign a written agreement and provide a $250 deposit to guarantee the agreed upon dates.  The remaining $500 will be required one month before the wedding.
