FRANKFORT, IL — A temporary restraining order has been granted against a wedding venue in Frankfort. The Village of Frankfort filed the injunction against Southern Charm Venues, a “barn wedding” venue, in Will County Circuit Court. The injunction names business owners Terri and Jerry Warning, among several others, as defendants in the case.
The case has a status hearing on Tuesday, after first meeting in June.
According to court documents, the land owned by the Warnings at 23504 S. Harlem Ave., was annexed into the village in 2003. The documents state the property is zoned as AG-agricultural district, but Southern Charm “is doing business” at the property.
According to Southern Charm’s website, the business hosts weddings at the property on Harlem Avenue.
Court documents state the Village was made aware of Southern Charms operating at the Harlem Avenue property. Members from the Village Building Department and the Frankfort Fire Protection
