    Best venue!

    Salvage One is THE best wedding venue in Chicago. The space is beautiful, roomy, and eclectic. All of the antique furniture and other pieces become your wedding decor, so you don鈥檛 have to spend a ton on other decor items. All we added were flowers and candles for the tables and a chuppah, and it was perfect. Colleen and Kelly are amazing, responsive, kind, and professional. It鈥檚 also unique to find a venue with both outdoor and indoor space - we did our ceremony in the courtyard and reception inside. Our guests loved the space, the different seating options, and the general vibe of Salvage One.

    Best Venue in Chicago!

    Stop looking for another venue- Salvage One is the best. From the moment we had our first tour we fell in love with the store and with the staff. They were such an ease to work with, accomodating us as we continued to evolve the form of our wedding during COVID, and were incredibly helpful. Our guests were blown away by how beautiful and unique the space was. We could not have had a better spot for our wedding!

    Loved every second!

    Can鈥檛 say enough great things about Salvage One. Colleen, our event coordinator, was so easy to work with and was very responsive to calls and emails. We DIY鈥檇 a decent portion of our wedding decor and she was kind enough to let us store our materials in her office the day before - a great help!

    The space itself is fantastic - which is a big plus if you don鈥檛 want to do a ton of flowers or table arrangements. We wanted to save some money there and that鈥檚 so doable at Salvage One, because the chandeliers, furniture and overall building aesthetic give you a built in atmosphere.

    I loved being able to have our ceremony downstairs (with the actual church pews!) and then head upstairs for the reception. It was perfect for our Friday evening wedding. Everything all in the same place!

    Our guests raved about all of the cool furniture and antiques throughout the space. I loved getting married in a relaxed, fun, unique venue. S.O. is the best!!
