Hampshire, Illinois

Hampshire, Illinois is home to Rancho Alegre, which offers a lofted barn that was converted to host intimate indoor weddings, larger outdoor weddings as well as indoor/outdoor receptions. 

WEDDING TIP: Make sure your venue has a backup plan – the ability to move it indoors or to a large tent just in case of inclement weather. Also, opt for an early evening ceremony (2 hours before "golden hour" is perfect.) If you have your nuptials in the mid-day sun, all of your photos will be very bright, and a good chance of losing great color.
