Antiquaire is a unique wedding venue located in Highland Park, Illinois that hosts a varied collection of European antiques. Originally, this building was established in 2007 and has since gained the additional function of producing eclectic designs. Here, couples will find interesting furnishings from far off destinations. Due to continued success, Antiquaire has acquired partnerships and began a range of in-house initiatives. One such initiative was Melissa Edelman Design, which started in 2011. Melissa Edelman Design now creates and develops kitchen and dining solutions with antique elements, fitted to a modern standard. Once the neighboring building became available in 2015, it was purchased and subsequently rehabilitated by architect John van Burgen. This project unearthed various historic elements that were refined and given new life. It is also here that memorable events may take place, surrounded by antique intrigues.
