    Fantastic experience!!

    The Halim Time & Glass Museum is a fabulous place to hold a wedding! We just had our wedding there and could not be happier! Jennifer made everything so easy; she is such a warm, friendly, professional who really knows how to plan every detail of a wedding! Ted, the food and beverage manager was wonderful and on top of everything. My husband and I could not imagine having our wedding anywhere else. Our wedding was absolutely beautiful and went off flawlessly! Jennifer and Ted helped us make it all happen. The Halim Museum is also the perfect venue if you want to host the ceremony and reception in one place. We love this place and look forward to hosting an anniversary party here in the future!

    Everything you need under one roof!

    We feel so fortunate to have found Halim. From initial planning conversations to the wedding itself, the entire staff at Halim proved incredibly helpful, insightful, open, and supportive. The experienced event managers (Jennifer + Amber), along with a world-class food and beverage team led by Ted, made wedding planning incredibly seamless. They were always open to suggestions while also bringing their own expertise allowed us to collectively create a perfect evening. The management team also was ready to help, with Mr. Halim who founded the museum popping in to show support throughout the planning. The family feel of the entire operation brought transparency and trust to an industry usually lacking in both.

    While these people made my experience so fantastic, the venue itself also deserves high praise. The gorgeous Wisteria room with its tiffany domed glass required very little additional decoration, which saved us more headaches than we can imagine, and the fantastic rooftop (best rooftop in Evanston!!) allowed us to host part of our wedding outdoors without the stress typically involved in an outdoor chicago wedding.

    That, combined with the all-inclusive packages that cover food, beverage, cake and beyond, decreased the overall burden of wedding planning, as I only had to source a few additional vendors (DJ, Florist, etc.). Event execution also went seamlessly thanks to the experienced team and a number of hands-on event finalization calls. No details were overlooked throughout the process, with all of the event team ready and eager to dedicate their time to a call or meeting to discuss any outstanding items. I'm so thankful for everyone's support that night and hope other couples continue to experience all Halim has to offer moving forward.
