Ethereal Confections is more than just a chocolate company. We’re a chocolate shop, cafe, speakeasy and event space, all rolled into one, located in Woodstock, IL–where Groundhog Day was filmed. At Ethereal, we know just what you’re looking for in a wedding venue, and our staff is dedicated to making your special day perfect. No surprises, no headaches. You just focus on having fun and creating memories, and we’ll do the rest.

We now have two location offerings! Our loft space, located above our cafe, and our new location the Courthouse Square, located on the second floor of the historic Woodstock Courthouse - right across the street from the cafe. With each location each guest receives a craft chocolate truffle favors, which will impress even the pickiest of aunts.

The Loft at Ethereal is our original venue with exposed brick walls, hardwood floors, and large windows overlooking the beautiful and historic Woodstock Square. Your guests will be greeted with the aroma of our own homemade chocolate as soon as they walk in. With a capacity up to 100 guests, it is perfect for an intimate night with friends and family.

The Courthouse Square, currently being renovated, holds up to 150 guests and is a show stopper with it’s historic architecture and modern finishes. With amenities such as a large wedding suite with lots of natural light and a separate ceremony room option, the space has been renovated with you in mind. The Courthouse Square also has an add-on option of the old Sheriff’s House, complete with original Jail Cells, it’s definitely the ultimate photo op. Opening September 2023.

Hoping for great photo spots? We’ve got those too! Between adorable brick buildings, the park in the center of town, and the colorful mural with Bill Murray’s face 7 feet high, there’s something for everyone. Make sure to look us up on Instagram @events.at.ethereal for photos and inspiration!

    Highly Recommend!

    Our experience at Ethereal Confections was phenomenal! We had a wonderful, fun, and intimate wedding reception for our 75 guests. I was worried the space would feel too small, but it was perfect. From talking with Kelsey to book the space in early 2021, to working with Kat on our big day in June 2022, our wedding could not have been more beautiful nor run more smoothly. Kat was wonderful to work with on the day of, buzzing around the whole evening making sure everything was taken care of. She even had to kindly get one of our rowdier guests off the table he was dancing on at the end of the night. Zach, our bartender, was also phenomenal and made my signature cocktail dreams come true!

    If you’re looking for a unique, intimate, wonderfully managed wedding venue with dedicated and talented staff, Ethereal Confections is the venue for you! We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. We highly recommend marrying your best friend in a chocolate shop!

    Ethereal Confections's reply:

    Scarlett, your wedding was literally picture perfect from start to finish! From your beautiful decor to your outfit changes, your reception is what people pin of :) Congratulations and best wishes to you both!
