Beautiful space and a pro team!
We are so happy that we were able to have our wedding at Journeyman. First, the venue: we rented out Warren Hall and the private suite next to it. To say it was beautiful is an understatement. The space is so pretty and industrial; very conducive to a lot of different decoration/floral decisions. Journeyman's team was always very responsive to our questions and easy to work with. There are also so many fun touches such as signature/welcome cocktails, and little shooters you can give to your guests as favors. We'd highly recommend them both for the space itself, and the people!Sent on 09/22/2019

Everything we ever dreamed!
This was the absolute perfect venue, they took all of our ideas and made it the perfect night. Food and drinks were amazing and the atmosphere cannot be beat. We loved our experience planning with all of the staff, Lindsay, Torie, and Dan were amazing, highly recommend!!Sent on 09/30/2019

Unique, beautiful venue with a hard-working team
I knew I wanted to get married at Journeyman 9 months into my relationship with my now husband so when he proposed, we immediately called and secured our date 16 months out. During this time there were some staffing changes in the event department, but that never stopped them (Lindsey and Dan in particular) from making sure that all my questions were answered in a timely manner. When Torie eventually joined the team, she was a seamless transition from my point of view and was really on top of everything we needed. I truly think I exchanged hundreds of e-mails with this team, given that we live in Chicago and didn't get a lot of facetime with them. Torie ended up accommodating my request for an in-person walk through on a Sunday where she spent two hours with me and my crew going through every little logistical detail we could throw at her.Sent on 06/28/2019
The rehearsal and day of the wedding went so so perfectly. When we couldn't rehearse in our room because of a wedding in there, they accommodated us in another space. There was another wedding going on that night at the venue and you would have never known it, as they managed to keep everything completely organized and separate. From bringing us water and coffee in the morning in the bridal suite, to helping us get into the still area for pictures, to accommodating MULTIPLE different food allergies/requests for some of our guests, Torie and Dan and the team knocked it out of the park. My normally very reserved husband even hugged Dan at the end of the night because he was so grateful for everything they did. Our guests were wowed by the venue and the food and drinks were all delicious. We loved our experience at Journeyman and look forward to going back for many visits in the future!
This venue was more incredible than I expected. From the staff, to the location, to the decor...It was quite an amazing space. I hope to shoot more weddings there and will be recommending it to couples!
