The Perfect Venue!
Artifact Events was the PERFECT venue for my wife and I to get married in on 3/7/2020. Everyone who works there has been such a pleasure to work with and made our entire process easy. We used the North Atrium and it was honestly our favorite thing about our whole wedding. All of our guests loved the industrialized look; it was so romantic and comfortable for our guest count of 175. Christine was very enjoyable and professional to work with. It helps that our vendors all worked in the space before - we did not have to worry about a thing before we arrived. We highly recommend using this venue!Sent on 05/14/2020

Gorgeous venue, great flow for the space
Our venue search was pretty much over before it began - as soon as we walked in, my fiance saw the look on my and my sister's face and knew that everywhere else was going to pale in comparison. Lucky for us, it was everything we needed, and at a comparable/reasonable price for a venue that can hold 200 in the city. Sachiko was responsive and professional, and was proactive about communicating changes to the space as it transitioned from being an antique store to solely an event space. The space is accessible, felt both bustling but not too crowded at 175 people (200 might have felt a bit tight but manageable), and they were very flexible about dropping in to look at the space, dropping wedding items off the day before, etc. My only drawback is that it is a little dark - and the additional lighting that pretty much every wedding example that we looked at in the space will add about $2000 to your budget. Otherwise, it was an absolutely perfect space that was unique, impressive and just what we had in mind for a city wedding! (Beautiful photography by Angela Renee Photography)Sent on 01/06/2020

We had our daughter's September wedding and reception at AE and it was absolutely perfect. It's an amazing magical space with an urban chic feel, exposed brick and super high ceilings; the perfect backdrop for our event. We had the ceremony outside in the courtyard, followed by cocktail hour in the lounge area off the courtyard. The dinner and dancing was in the atrium on the north side of the space, with sit down dinner and a large dance area. Christine and Micah were both very professional and easy to work with, and the entire event was perfect. We really lucked out with the weather and were able to have the ceremony outside but one of the things I really liked about AE is the rain plan would have required no compromises. There are several indoor ceremony options that are all viable and beautiful.Sent on 10/09/2017
Architectural Artifacts has always been one of our favorite venues in Chicago! The new loft and gallery spaces that Artifact Events has added really create so much flexibility for both weddings and other types of events.
Its always a pleasure to work with professionals in the Wedding business like you!
