About Creativo Loft

An intimate vintage Chicago loft with skyline views

www.creativoloft.com  (773) 563-0116   info@creativoloft.com

Specializing in small weddings in downtown Chicago from 2 to 74 people.

Creativo Loft is an intimate venue, only two miles from Michigan Ave./downtown Chicago, located in a vintage building dating back to 1887. With approximately 3000 square feet we specialize in unique and personalized smaller gatherings.

From elopements for two people to seated receptions with up to 74, our specialty is small weddings.  For traditional style banquet seating with room for dancing, our maximum capacity is 74 people.  For a standing room cocktail party, we can accommodate up to 100, which works nicely for more casual gatherings without a formal seated dinner, such as engagement parties or welcome parties.

Standard venue rental rates for full day 7 hour wedding starts at $5000.  We also have special all-inclusive plans, including our popular Casual Weddings and Tiny Weddings, which are specially priced to reflect smaller group sizes (generally 20-40 people) with a shorter amount of time, from 3 to 5 hours, depending on the package choice. More information is on the services page of our business website.

Creativo Loft is a "raw" space, which means we can create a look for your wedding that is as unique as your own personal style. As an authentic city loft that is nearly 130 years old, it lends itself to vintage, offbeat or other unique receptions. A more modern look may also be achieved with minimalistic treatments to decor, windows, and modern or modern style table linens and settings.  We have 14-foot tall large windows with a great view of the Chicago skyline.

Owners, Giorgio an Italian native and Sarah a Chicagoan, have been working as creative professionals and in the events industry for over 20 years, and opened Creativo Loft in January 2012.  We are influenced by old world Italian and friendly Midwestern roots to create a warm and welcoming environment where everyone feels "at home."

Creativo Loft's manager Sarah also provides coordination of elopements and small weddings for couples and small groups up to 30. These packages often incorporate using various outdoor parks and other locations around Chicago, in addition to weddings at our venue Creativo Loft.

I really can't say enough good things about Creativo Loft! We had our wedding there in June of this year and they completely blew our expectations away. Sarah and Giorgio are so fun and easy to work with, and our photos turned out absolutely gorgeous. We've received so much positive feedback from our friends and family as well, who were all very impressed with the venue, food, flowers, and everything else. Thanks for bringing our vision to life and making our wedding better than we'd imagined!

My husband and I were married at the Loft in mid-April. His family is from the Chicago area, and we live in CT, so our wedding planning was done mostly remotely. Sarah was amazing and professional throughout the 5 months that we worked together. No calls or emails went unanswered, and when we spoke, she always took the time to talk to us about the details and put our minds at ease about planning.
We fell in love with the venue and Sarah’s style – casual but classy and fun but laid back – immediately as they both seemed to fit right in with our wedding vibe. We had 6-hour, 60-person event with full catering and a DJ. As we were going through the process, we truly appreciated Sarah’s flexibility, vendor recommendations, and honesty about cost. And she worked with all of the vendors to bring everything together. It was clear that she has a lot of experience working in the Chicago area!
The venue itself is charming and perfect for an intimate gathering. The hardwood floors, high ceiling and tall windows give it an open and light feel. Many of our guests commented on how nice it was to not to be at a “wedding factory”. Sarah also has many décor items (frames, candles, cake stands, baskets) on hand at the Loft that she lent to us for the day that helped with the finishing touches. We were so impressed with how beautiful and warm the room felt when we entered.
We also used Giorgio as our photographer. He was extremely calm and really brought out the best in us. We actually used him for an outdoor “engagement” shoot the day before the wedding. It was the perfect way to relax and kick off our wedding weekend in the city.
All in all, Sarah and Giorgio are wonderful people and make a great team. They took our vision and made it a reality. Everything went off without a hitch! If you are looking for a unique space in Chicago for your smaller wedding/event with no stress and friendly, casual venue owners who really care about your day, then head to Creativo Loft!

Perfect venue for a small wedding. We also had our reception here. Sarah and Giorgio were awesome - easy to work with, gave us alternatives, overall amazing. Our guests complemented us on every aspect of our wedding and 80% was because of Sarah and Giorgio.
