About

2022 Couples' Choice Awards Winner
$15k - $22k For 100 Guests
Up to 350 guests

Company 251 is a wedding venue located in Aurora, Illinois. Built in 1908, the historic building was originally an international harvester manufacturing company. Merging the past with the present, it has been renovated with industrial chic, minimalist stylings, creating an elegantly modern setting for any special occasion. Through their precise attention to detail and high-quality customer service, the staff strives to create a luxurious experience for those celebrating their big day.

Facilities and Capacity

Company 251 has two event spaces that can accommodate up to 350 guests where couples can host their celebration. The building’s interior features exposed brick walls, original wood columns, marble bars, handmade lighting, and large windows, resulting in a bright space. The venue also has an outdoor patio that can be used for intimate ceremonies and receptions. No matter which event space you select, it can be adjusted to fit your unique wedding vision. Before the festivities begin, you and your partner are invited to prepare in separate get-ready suites.

Services Offered

Company 251 can provide you with an all-inclusive six-hour venue rental. An event manager is available to help coordinate the details of your day. Items such as tables, chairs, additional furniture, and more can be supplied for any celebration. To alleviate stress on the day, the staff is happy to set up your ceremony and reception. Outside vendors of your choosing are also welcome to contribute to your big day.

Cuisine

In-house catering is provided by the venue’s parent company, Moveable Feast + CO. For your celebration, you will be provided an artisanal food and drink program that matches the city loft’s aesthetic. Helmed by Executive Chef Chris Ayukawa, the culinary team crafts menus that are based on seasonal ingredients sourced from local farms. Your selected meal can be served buffet-style or plated depending on your preferences. The venue offers tastings prior to your event to ensure that you are satisfied with your menu. Additionally, the catering team is happy to prepare hors d’oeuvres and desserts. A champagne toast can be provided, and the in-house bar is stocked with signature drinks and premium liquor for you to enjoy throughout the event.

    Our amazing nye wedding dream!

    I am HONORED to leave this review for Company 251! I wish I could give them 10 stars! Although we were a COVID couple, from the very beginning, Emily (Director of Events & Catering) and Abbie (Events Manager) were absolutely sensational. They were easy to talk to and so kind, very flexible, answered all of my questions in a timely manner, insanely organized, and made me feel like such a special bride. I couldn’t have been luckier to have them by my side!!

    The venue itself is stunning; everything has neutral colors, it’s modern, the lighting can be accommodated, and it does not require much décor. The venue has multiple floors that we were able to access for a variety of things including first look, dinner, and the reception. Abbie, Emily, and their team flipped the first floor during our dinner that was held on the second floor. Also, the food for dinner was phenomenal! We received many compliments days after the wedding from our family and friends about the venue and the food!

    I felt completely stress-free knowing that their team took care of everything for us. They continuously checked in on my husband and I throughout the process and the day of the wedding. The entire process was SO easy!! I am just in AWE at the service and support Company 251 provided. Our NYE wedding was absolutely everything we dreamed of and more!!! HIGHLY highly recommended!!!

    Best day ever!

    Company 251 gave us the wedding of our dreams and then some. We couldn’t of been more pleased with how everything turned out. We worked with Abbie and she was such a huge help along the way. Always there answering any questions and guiding us throughout the process!
    The food was absolutely out of this world - we received so many compliments on how great it was. Served fast and hot!
    And the venue itself is so dreamy. Everything about the space is so beautiful and special. We could not have imagined our big day anywhere else!!

    Everything + More

    CO251 went way beyond our already high expectations. Honest, Caring, and Professional staff. They made planning a wedding during Covid almost effortless. Our package included the fantastic in-house catering company, Moveable Feast, an extremely organized day of wedding coordinator, stunning venue, complimentary coat check, free parking for guests, complimentary cut cake, coffee service, and wait staff/bar tenders and so much more. 100% worth the cost and they are upfront about costs which is huge! You will be so happy if you book here. My partner and I were able to eat, drink and actually fully enjoy the wedding thanks to the CO251 staff! The smooth transitions and impressive food combinations wowed our guests. Thank you for making our special day perfect!
