Dream Wedding at CVL
As a COVID wedding couple, no part of the wedding planning process was easy until we decided to book with City View Loft and LM Catering. Unfortunately our original venue did not work out, so we ended up looking for a new venue 2 months out from our wedding. We worked with Jamie and she was fantastic in every way possible. She was always responsive, patient with our endless questions, upbeat, and had us feeling so good about them from the beginning that we booked without even seeing the venue in person. Jamie and the beautiful CVL finally got us excited about our wedding after so many obstacles we had to overcome, and it ended up being a truly perfect day.Sent on 05/25/2021

Beautiful venue with great staff!
We had our wedding at City View Loft in August 2020 and we could not recommend the venue more! Because of the pandemic, we had to make many changes but working with Jamie made everything easy and stress free. She was extremely patient and worked with us as we went back and forth trying to make decisions throughout the months leading up to August. She responded quickly to all our questions and always had a bright and positive attitude, which we really appreciated during that time. Jamie was even able to allow us to come the day before to decorate since there were no events going on. Working with Jamie made the venue that much more special to us!
The venue itself is beautiful. All the photos came out stunning and beautiful. We had our ceremony and cocktail hour downstairs in Kitchen Chicago and dinner upstairs. Both areas are beautiful and very photogenic. The view of the city from the upstairs windows is breathtaking and a perfect backdrop for photos. The food was amazing as well. Our friends still talk about how the food was so delicious and a few of our friends have even tried to recreate the salad. The cake was done by Sophie at Vanille. She was amazing to work with as well. We walked into our consultation completely clueless and Sophie guided us to our dream cake! It was beautiful!
Overall we're so happy we went with City View Lofts! We appreciated the professionalism and positive attitude of every staff and vendor that served us. It was not the wedding we originally envisioned when we booked the venue last year (pre-pandemic), but it was better than we could have imagined and turned out to be a memorable day we will never forget.
We're so grateful to CVL, all of their staff, and the owners for working with us and being flexible during the pandemic to make this all possible and done safely. We've heard so many awful stories of friends being swindled out of their deposits and/or being strong-armed by the venues they've booked with. If you're cautious about booking with a vendor due to trust, please know that Jamie and CVL will take care of you and will work with you as they've done with us.Sent on 12/10/2020

City View Loft Chicago's reply:Thank you! We're so happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience working with our team. Best wishes from all of us at City View Loft!
City View Loft has risen fast to become one of Chicago's preferred venues for mid-size weddings, and a true anchor of the Near West Side. As Chicago DJs who have performed at City View Loft, we especially appreciate its warm atmosphere, the helpfulness of its staff, and its perfect acoustics. With a high ceiling, and no carpeting soaking up the sound, a DJ's speakers don't have to run at maximum volume to be heard clearly in every corner of the room. So dancers can dance, talkers can talk, and everyone has a great time. Plus, its views of the Chicago skyline are a wonderful backdrop for wedding photos.
A beautiful open space with a breathtaking view of the Chicago skyline and enough options for a couple to make the space uniquely their own for a night. The staff are friendly, helpful and easy to work with.
Not only is this a venue with a beautiful view of the city's skyline from a different vantage point, but you have the pleasure of working with some beautiful, professional, attentive people at City View Loft that will make your wedding THE event to be talked about and remembered for years to come!
