Today we are chatting about some of the most spectacular wedding venues/event spaces that Chicago has to offer.  There are wide variety of venues to choose from in this wonderful city and we wanted to highlight some of our favorites.

1. Cafe Brauer

I may be a little biased, since my husband and I got married here, and thus it will always hold a special place in my heart.  But going beyond my bias, with the gorgeous prairie style architecture and the spectacular views of Lincoln Park and the city skyline as seen from the loggias, what’s not to love?  It’s a beautiful oasis for a Chicago wedding set in the middle of Lincoln Park just adjacent to the Lincoln Park Zoo.  Perfect for those couples wanting a downtown Chicago wedding with the feel of the outdoors & nature as well.  From an architectural standpoint, the sea-foam green steel work seen out front as well as within the ceiling of the ballroom is absolutely beautiful.  The skylight allows for the sunshine to just pour into the main ballroom. This space can accommodate roughly 250 people for a seated dinner.  Photos by Kina Wicks Photography.

Elevator Garlands: If you have ever been to a wedding or an event at the Bridgeport Art Center, you know how exciting entering the space can be. An oversized freight elevator equipped with a full bar and lounge grouping transported guests to the skyline loft at the top floor.  We draped garlands along the elevator, creating a super cozy and inviting atmosphere.

Ceremony Trellis Backdrop: Sean and Morgan exchanged vows in front of this all white trellis backdrop covered in smilax and accented with pops of plush peonies and ivory spray roses.  At the start of the aisle stood two boxwood topiaries welcoming guests into this garden-inspired affair.

The Hydrangea Garland: Over 130 stems were used to create this lush hydrangea garland that ran the … Read More »
