    We had our wedding at South Branch this August, and it could not have been a more perfect night. We wanted a more relaxed, cocktail style reception but we wanted to make sure that our guests had plenty of food. We also wanted an outdoor wedding and reception with a solid indoor backup plan in case the weather was terrible. South Branch hit it out of the park on all counts. We ended up having great weather, so we were able to have the entire night out on their awesome patio. Our guests raved about the food, the service, and the fact that they never had a wait at the bar. The staff were wonderful to work with, and the venue's day-of coordinator kept the whole night running smoothly. It ended up being the absolute perfect venue for our Chicago wedding.

    We used South Branch for our wedding on August 15, 2015. Jennifer Williams and her team are completely amazing. The entire event was flawless, from the ceremony, to dinner, to the reception afterwards. Throughout the planning process, it was a pleasure to work with Jennifer to finalize any and all details before the big day. I met with her 3-4 times throughout the past year for walk-throughs, food tastings, and pre-event meetings. She always had an answer for any of my questions. One of the reasons we picked South Branch as our venue was due to her confidence, calm demeanor, and organizational skills. She assured us that everything would go perfectly on our big day and she was exactly right. Our guests commented that the food was outstanding, the service was excellent, and even the security guards were friendly. We made a last-minute decision to extend our event from 11pm to midnight and her whole team graciously accommodated our request. Compared to other venues in downtown Chicago, South Branch is relatively affordable for an outdoor, Chicago Loop wedding. The value of the event compared to the cost was on point. We cannot say enough good things about the events team at South Branch.
