  • Taylor and Marcus, 2015

    Thank you so much for all you and your staff have done to assist us in having a beautiful wedding! Your venue is gorgeous, your staff is wonderful and the food is amazing! We appreciate all of your hard work!

  • Dianne McNaab, 2015

    Thank you for making my daughter’s wedding run so smoothly and be so beautiful. All of the staff was kind and helpful and the food was delicious! We couldn’t have asked for anything better! You made her special day wonderful. Thank you!

  • Olivia and Mike, 2015

    Olivia and Mike’s wedding reception far exceeded our expectations. We knew Pear Tree would be beautiful, but we weren’t prepared for just HOW beautiful it would look! The crazy weather that day just added to the “fairy tale” quality. The professionalism of the staff, and the superb quality of the food combined to make for a perfect evening! So many people told us it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding reception. Thank you so much for everything! Sincerley, MaryKay and Bruce Fehrenbacher

  • Mady and Greg, 2015

    Thank you. Thank you for everything each and every one of you did to make our wedding a special and personal experience. We had a magical day and couldn’t have done it without you all! You’re the best!

  • Bonnie and Danny, 2013

    I do not know where to begin to thank you for the most perfect day. Everyone and everything was just wonderful. We appreciate your kindness all the way through. Never was anyone impatient or rude during the planning process and it continued even when our event was over. Your genuine excitement for our event, thank you for being as excited as we were. It means a lot when we know you see a different wedding every night but your treated like yours is the only one. Excellent timeliness, we have been to countless weddings waiting on food and we feel like everything was so smooth and no one was ever waiting around. Each minute counted! The Venue really, Pear Tree in itself, thank you for creating a place that is so "us" and allowed us to savor the outdoor beauty of central Illinois. What a beautiful business you have, I feel blessed to have had our wedding there and to have met you all.

  • Jackie and Chad, 2014

    I knew the moment we first talked this was going to be a great process! I can’t thank you enough for answering my constant emails, questions, concerns and what ifs. You were so helpful with everything that was Pear Tree and LA Gourmet related, but what I loved most was how you always went above and beyond your responsibilities to help, offer suggestions and be a friend. You made the process such a breeze. I am truly going to miss talking to you on a weekly basis. I’m selfishly telling everyone I know to get married at Pear Tree so we can hang out again. Thank you again for everything!

  • Diane, 2014

    We still have people talking about Pear Tree and the fabulous food. The kids even get compliments at other weddings they attend. Thank you for making my daughter’s wedding run so smoothly and be so beautiful. All the staff was kind and helpful and the venue was so beautiful! We couldn’t have asked for anything better. You made her special day wonderful.

  • Dawn and Jay, 2013

    Thank you so much for all you and your staff have done to assist us in having a beautiful wedding. Your venue is gorgeous, your staff is wonderful and the food is amazing! We appreciate your hard work.
