Getting married at Willow

Dating couples can prepare for marriage by participating in Willow's Two-to-One workshop, which helps them build a strong foundation for marriage by exploring communication styles, faith, personality, and what each person learned about marriage from the family they grew up in.

Upon completing Two-to-One, couples who consider Willow Creek their home church may apply for pre-marital mentoring, which offers couples a chance to explore the fundamentals of building a strong, God-honoring marriage alongside a trained mentor couple. Our premarital staff can also reserve your preferred, available wedding date and time. Our chapel at South Barrington is generally available on Friday evenings and Saturday mornings and afternoons. Wedding fees: Chapel—$300; Willow Creek pastor or wedding officiate—$350.

Learn more about Two-to-One, pre-marital mentoring, or planning a wedding at Willow by contacting Nancy Wendt: (224) 512-1163,

Not an attender of Willow Creek? Thank you for your interest in our premarital development classes and mentoring! While our chapel is only available to those who consider Willow Creek their home church, our Two-to-One workshop is open to any couple journeying toward marriage, and we welcome the opportunity to serve you as you build a God-honoring relationship. 

If you are not a part of a local church community, we invite you to explore Willow Creek by attending weekend services or midweek classes.
