Tent – Top Notch Rental automatically provides a discount on any accessories if you have your wedding at Northfork.  Cost depends on the size and the number of items needed.

The trailer is equipped with air conditioning, heat, stereo, and of course real running water fixures (corain countertops, real toliets, and sinks).  Northfork does provide wheelchair accessibility.

Hotels – We have a number of hotels in the area that we’re working with to provide discount packages for our wedding couples out of town guests, just let us know the geographic area you prefer.

Shuttle Bus – We have used M&M Limousine Services and found them to be timely and comfortable. They too, will provide a discount to anyone who schedules their event at Northfork. They will arrange multiple pick up and drop off times at each of the hotels.

Photography – If you don’t have a current photographer, we have a few excellent wedding photographers that we feel confident in recommending based on our experience of working with them in this field.

Flowers – If you are in need of a florist, we suggest Flowers by Meegan (630-217-8226). Her specialty is floral arrangements and wedding bouquets. We have many beautiful hanging baskets and planters around our farm, and they are all courtesy of Keller’s Farmstand. If interested, both will provide you with a great selection at a very reasonable cost.
