- Ivy Room at Tree Studios
- River East Art Center
The Chicago Cultural Center doesn’t need much of a description. As you will se below the room speaks for itself. If your ceremony or reception will be at the Cultural Center you have quite a few options for the perfect Chicago wedding picture locations. Michigan Ave, Wacker Drive, and Millenium Park are all within walking distance. Both the gorgeous room and central location make the Chicago Cultural center one of the best Chicago wedding venues.
The Chicago History Museum is in our list for the best Chicago wedding venue because of its many wedding options. You can have a gorgeous wedding ceremony outside then walk up the large concrete steps through the concrete pillars to a wide open ballroom. The patio out back also makes the perfect spot for your cocktail hour.
We love the garden behind Galleria Marchetti. Want to step outside for fresh air during the reception. It’s only a few steps from the tent to the romantically lit garden. The garden combined with an open air tent make Galleria Marchetti one of the best wedding venues in Chicago.
You may be thinking, wait I’ve never heard of this place. That is exactly why it made our best wedding Chicago wedding venue list. The Chicago Illuminating Company is a blank slate. You can go for a minimalist approach and leave the room as is or tailor three different rooms to fit your wedding design ideas.
The Ivy Room at Tree Studios has it all. It has room for your wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and wedding reception. You can have your wedding inside, cocktail hour outside in the amazing courtyard then come back in for the wedding reception. Or, have your ceremony outside followed by cocktail hours downstairs and reception upstairs in the Ivy Room. We think you will agree They Ivy Room at Tree Studios is one of the best wedding venues in Chicago.
The River East Art Center is a two story open air art museum that can be transformed into your wedding venue. We love this venue! If you have a chance you have to take pictures out front at night. The wide open two stories inside provide a space for great dancing and reception pictures. We can’t forget to mention the river out the back door. There is not shortage of great options for wedding pictures here. If there is a list of best wedding venues in Chicago, the River East Art Center will be on it.
