    We got married at Promontory Point at Hyde Park and it turned out beautifully! To be honest, my fiance and I were a little nervous to have our wedding at a park district location, but the venue, location, for the rental price were too good to pass up. There really isn't a more affordable lakeside wedding location in Chicago. We actually had our ceremony on the grassy area by the lakeside, and had the Chicago skyline and Lake Michigan as our beautiful backdrop. We also loved that Promontory Point is a historic building - and we decorated the space beautifully with market string lights and candle light to set a romantic mood for our reception. The park service staff was also very responsive and accommodating to answering our questions and setting time out for walkthroughs! On the day of the wedding - there were park representatives available, and security on site as well. We have no regrets having our wedding at Promontory Point!

    I had my wedding in the North Rose Garden. There is lots of red tape, deadlines, permit's, insurance, etc. but they are really helpful with questions, which I had a ton, and I was late getting my payment in by a month, and they were totally fine with it, helped me get the insurance, and they always emailed me back. Kind of hassle, but worth it for a great chicago ceremony setting. Our ceremony was beautiful, and the park looked amazing. Plus since you have to do it so far in advance it's not that bad, but do make sure you go through there lists of approved vendors before hand, as they are not as responsive.
