Fountain Blue Banquets & Conference Center

Wedding and Event Venue

2300 Mannheim Road
Des Plaines, IL 60018


Fountain Blue Banquet & Conference Center is a hidden gem in Des Plaines, less than half an hour outside of downtown Chicago, which offers an amazing ambiance and elegant decor, enough to leave you and your guests in awe!

Along with an unparalleled picturesque outdoor setting, the Fountain Blue Banquet and Conference Center has three distinctly decorated banquet rooms each offering a fabulous backdrop to your stunning wedding photographs. If you have planned a small or intimate wedding with the guest count of 50 people or grand wedding reception with the list of 400 guests or planning to host a cocktail reception for 800 people, the combination of these three rooms allows the Fountain Blue the versatility to host any size ceremony.

Amidst all the indoor spaces is the Athenaeum room. With 3,375 sq. foot area, this room can easily welcome up to 200 guests. The shimmering chandeliers, pretty wall sconces, gracefully draped head table, and neutral walls are creating a celestial ambiance for your wedding photographer to capture.

The Normandy is another option where you can host your wedding reception with the guest count of 250. Our Chicago wedding photographers love to shoot in this modern event space as this place has abundant natural light, lighting up the interiors beautifully while adding a magical tint to your wedding photographs. Let your Chicago wedding photographer click some tender moments while you are immersed in the romantic vibes of your first dance!

If you are a couple who likes glamour then the Versailles room is the perfect indoor spot to host your wedding reception and cocktail hour. This space offers a mind-blowing luxurious setting that will certainly take your guests’ breath away. The billowing linen drapery throughout the space with incredible chandeliers makes this indoor space stand out from the rest of the spots. With the capacity to entertain 400 guests, this ethereal space with an environment of unmatched beauty and pure romance, allows you to have a remarkable night filled with wonderful memories. Allow your wedding photographer to capture all your enchanting moments!

If you want to have an outdoor wedding in the midst of the gorgeous garden full of lush foliage, brightly colored flowers then the Lion’s Gate Pavilion is the perfect spot offered by the Fountain Blue. This tent structure outdoor spot allows ample natural light to flood in and lend a golden glow to the atmosphere and sparkling effect to the wedding photographs. Let our wedding photographer document the romance and beauty of your love story in the private outside garden area!

The ivory-colored gazebo and the beautiful fountain in the front offer plenty of photo opportunities to get some fun and candid photos for not just you but for the guests also!

Your wedding should be unique and beyond comparison—this is one of the many reasons why Fountain Blue Banquet & Conference Center is the venue of choice!
