Wedding Story

"On July 20, 2019, we were unbelievably fortunate enough to have the stars align and our dreams come true . . . we held our wedding at the elegant Soderstrom Castle!  We had long hoped this could be possible, having volunteered for many events at the Castle and been guests at several fundraisers and special events.  Even as the day approached, it seemed unreal that it was happening!  We held our ceremony in the beautiful sunken garden, and the reception under a high peak pole tent and wood dance floor, all lit with Edison bulb string lights. All of the vendors were excited to be a part of our wedding at the Castle, from the florist to the photographer.  The Castle grounds were in full bloom, adding to the fairy-tale setting. Guests were just as thrilled to be able to see this Peoria landmark up close.  Out of state guests from Florida to California, Michigan to Arizona, were amazed such a magical place was in the middle of Peoria! We can’t thank Dr. Soderstrom and his staff enough for the chance to make Soderstrom Castle day one of our Happily Ever After!"
