Growing up in Milmine, Allerton Park was just a hop, skip, and a jump away. A childhood babysitter introduced me to Allerton Park and the mansion. Spending time at the Sangamon River and Hogchute Bridge is something I will always cherish. My sister spent many years working as part of the catering staff and was instrumental in hiring me and my wife (then-girlfriend). We spent a number of years working in the kitchen, catering many conferences and weddings. Thanks to a series of events and awesome friends, we were fortunate enough to be one of the first weddings at the beautiful Music Barn on 09/28/2013. Allerton Park is a wonderful place and we are fortunate to have it so close! Thank you Jordan Zech and Steph Shonkwiler!
