Venue Highlight | Ivy Room Chicago, Illinois

I am thrilled to highlight one of my favorite venues today – the Ivy Room in Chicago, Illinois. I love getting to shoot events here – it’s a great space for any type of event! So why should you host your event there? My top 4 reasons for hosting? Read on to find out.

Beautiful Ballroom

A ballroom is always a good choice for a wedding location. They are typically blank slates, so they can be styled for almost any theme or style of event. The Ivy Room ballroom is no exception! I love the clean aesthetic in the space, and I have seen it transformed into many stunning ceremonies and receptions.

Versatile Outdoor Courtyard

The outdoor courtyard at the Ivy Room in Chicago is a great addition to the space – it’s so versatile in how it can be utilized on the wedding day. From photo location to ceremony options, it can definitely add flexibility to the space inside. Need a cocktail hour while the space is being transformed for the reception? No problem – the courtyard can comfortably host your guests, complete with bar options!

Hotel Proximity

Have a ton of out-of-town guests coming to the event? The Ivy Room is located half a mile from some of the most popular hotels in downtown Chicago – many within walking distance! You are also near many upscale restaurants and great shopping, making this a great option for your wedding or event.

Epic Outdoor Portraits

As mentioned above, the Ivy Room is located very close to some great hotels and downtown areas. Because of this, we are able to sneak away for some epic, very “Chicago” portrait sessions, all without taking away a ton of time with your guests and wedding party.
