Rich in History 

Located in Vernon Hills, IL, Loyola at Cuneo Mansion and Gardens is home to the Cuneo family collection of fine art and furnishings, set in a beautiful 100-acre estate.
Construction of Cuneo Mansion and Gardens began in 1914 and was completed in 1916 as the home of Samuel Insull, an original founder of the General Electric Company, and designed by Chicago architect, Benjamin Marshall, in the Italianate style. Its gardens and landscaping were designed by world-renowned landscape architect, Jens Jensen. In 1937, John Cuneo Sr. bought the home and lived there with his wife, Julia, and two children, John Jr. and Consuela. John Sr owned and operated Hawthorn Mellody Farms Dairy, the National Tea Company, and the Cuneo Press.
In 2009, the Cuneo Foundation, the family foundation of John Cuneo Jr. and his wife, Herta, gave the estate to Loyola University Chicago. The $50 million gift, the largest in Loyola's history, included the museum’s extensive collection of art and furnishings.
Since receiving the estate, Loyola has completed a number of renovations and added a meeting and event pavilion for courses and special events. Loyola will continue its investment in the mansion.
Loyola's Cuneo Mansion and Gardens has an elegant formal garden, a terrace overlooking the mansion grounds, and a historic Italianate-style mansion with a beautifully appointed year-round pavilion for up to 300 guests.

We hosted my daughter's wedding at The Cuneo Mansion in September of this year (2012) and it was simply a spectacular event. The grounds of the mansion were phenomenal for hosting an outdoor ceremony, where all of the guests had a wonderful view of the mansion and gardens behind the site of the actual wedding ceremony. After the ceremony, the guests made their way up to the outdoor terrace for cocktails and appetizers. The setting was terrific for this piece of the event and again, the views over-looking the gardens for everyone was stunning. The bartenders and servers on the terrace could not have been nicer and the appetizers were mouth-watering. This terrace and its views lent a very special quality to the reception's proceedings.
I would recommend hosting a wedding at The Cuneo Mansion and having Bauer's Catering handle all of the reception-related items to anyone who is looking to make their big day truly memorable!
