About Company 251

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.

    If I could give 10 stars, I would!

    The Space: Company 251 was the first venue I toured after I got engaged and I knew it was where I had to get married! The space is so, so beautiful on its own, but also served as a good blank slate for all of our decor. We loved the sophisticated, yet industrial vibe. It was exactly what we were looking for and every little corner photographs so well! Having access to the entire building for the whole day really made it feel like it was our space. So many of our guests commented on how beautiful the space was and that it was one of their favorite venues they had been to.

    Staff: Emily and Abbie made planning from a distance such a breeze and were an absolute dream to work with. Seriously, I can not speak highly enough about them. They made the day of our wedding so stress-free and helped coordinate all the vendors. I barely had to lift a finger and was so grateful for their expertise. I probably sent a couple emails every week for three of four months and they were quick to respond, so patient, and super helpful throughout the entire process. They were also very flexible and willing to do whatever they could to help easy my anxiety. The day-of staff was also fantastic! Our guests were very happy with the service they received during cocktail hour and dinner and said all staff was very helpful in addressing questions and concerns.

    Food: Dinner was a hit! Several guests commented that it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. They were so easy to work with when it came to food allergies and dietary restrictions too.

    Overall: If I could give them ten starts, I absolutely would! Everything was perfect and truly made our day the best ever. I would suggest paying for early access to the venue so you can get ready in the bridal suite on-site. Our hair and makeup team loved it and it was SO great to have everything in one location. Book your wedding here, you will not regret it!
