The History

For years, the elegant barn wedding venue you see now sat filled with old horse stalls, boxes and debris, complete with a dirt floor! In 2010, we were inspired to take the architectural shell of this structure and completely transform it into one of the most unique special event venues in the Chicagoland area! Imagine your first dance under the sparkling chandeliers, your friends and loved ones enjoying the night air on the stone patio as the sun sets over the countryside. Make it an event to cherish at Emerson Creek in Oswego!

Meet Our Events Team

Our Founder Chris Demiduk along with her husband Dave run the show here at Emerson. Not only do they own it -together they are the dynamic duo. From creative directors to dishwashers they do it all. Their pride and joy shine through the hard work they instill in us everyday. Dave and Chris appreciate a good game of golf and love to travel when they can. Since they were the first couple to marry here – everyday is a sweet memory!

Hi I’m Kristen your coordinator here at Emerson. After 13 years of connecting with wedding couples I’ve come to appreciate that details and learning to “go with the flow” are the ultimate mix for a stress-free day. When I’m not helping customers bring their “love story” to life, the fun continues to flow with my family. My husband and I along with our four children are huge sports fans. We enjoy being outdoors and the never ending hustle and bustle of back to back kids sports. As busy are we are believe it or not, we do get to put our feet up once in a while.
Karla has been a part of the Emerson Creek team for the last 8 years.  From working in the shop to helping out in the restaurant and you may have spoken with her when you called to make a reservation. She is currently working on the billing side of things here at Emerson Creek.  Karla’s favorite part of the job is seeing a couple’s dream wedding come to life from the time they come in to tour the facility to see the couples transform EC to their wedding vision.
