VENUE GUIDE

Chicago Wedding Venues


Finding the perfect wedding venue in Chicago can be hard — that’s why I put together this guide to Chicago Wedding Venues to help you narrow down the many options our great city has to offer.

While this list is far from exhaustive, I hope it can serve as a helpful starting point for your search. After six years and nearly 100 weddings as a Chicago Wedding Photographer, I’ve seen many of the great options available downtown and in the suburbs, and I’d love to share my insights and help you find the right fit for your unique celebration.

To help you narrow down your search, I’ve sorted some of my favorite Chicago wedding venues by category: Chicago Mansion Wedding Venues, Chicago Loft Wedding Venues, Chicago, Outdoor Chicago Wedding Venues, and Classic Chicago Wedding Venues.
