It's been just over 10 years since I got married, but I still remember the struggle of planning  our wedding. Sure, it was an extremely exciting time, but the overwhelming amount of decisions that need to be made nearly got the best of me. Quite frankly, I suck at making important decisions.

One of the hardest decisions for us to make when planning our wedding was deciding where to hold our reception. We wanted beautiful scenery, as we got married in the Fall, and the Rockford area is blessed to have a plethora of venues that provide exactly that. If only a venue would have offered an incentive like this when we on the hunt for a venue, the decision would have been a no-brainer!

Klehm Arboretum has recently partnered with Franchesco's Ristorante, who will now be handling all venue rentals at Klehm, and in honor of the new partnership, they are offering one heck of a sign-on bonus to all couples getting married in 2021!

According to;


To further entice future brides and grooms during this challenging time, Franchesco’s will be offering a $1,000 signing bonus to any couple who books their 2021 reception date by Jan. 31.

Klehm Arboretum is over 150 acres in size and is able to host gatherings for up to 500 people, so if a big, beautiful party is what you're envisioning for your wedding this year, get on the phone with Franchesco's at 779-500-0261 today!
