About

On WeddingWire since 2021

The Arbory Chicago is an industrial-chic wedding venue located in Chicago, Illinois. Nestled in the historic West Town, this 100-year-old converted warehouse blends vintage charm with contemporary sophistication. The building’s renovation was inspired by turn-of-the-century New Orleans, and the facility now features six sweeping skylights, custom millwork, old Chicago brick, and state-of-the-art amenities. Murals painted by local artists adorn the exterior, bringing a curated and one-of-a-kind feel to the space. Just minutes from the Loop, Logan Square, and O’Hare International Airport, the property is centrally located in the heart of the urban metropolis. Take a tour to experience the elegant, refined, and spacious setting in which you can make timeless memories with all your loved ones.

Facilities and Capacity
When you enter The Arbory Chicago, you will be greeted by breathtaking exposed brick walls and natural light, which filters in from the skylights above. To the left you will find a get-ready en-suite, where you can prepare for the festivities and enjoy champagne with your wedding party. This area also features a staging area and a fully equipped prep kitchen. To your right is an aisle that leads to the ceremony location. Custom doorways open from this spot to the dreamy reception banquet hall, which is draped with Italian café lights and can accommodate 175 guests. This convenient setup avoids a room flip and allows for flexibility when decorating each phase of your celebration. The reception area, "skylight room" comes with two bars, lounge furniture to seat 6, gender-neutral bathrooms, and plenty of room for dining and dancing late into the night.

Services Offered
The Arbory Chicago offers a range of décor and services to ensure your wedding is breezy and stress-free. These include custom wood tables, antique chairs, lounge furniture, candle treatment, and a beautiful copper arch for exchanging vows. Digital lighting, sound enhancements, video projectors, and screens are also provided, as are technicians who will manage the lighting and sound. To help make sure that everything runs smoothly, a venue coordinator will be on hand throughout the planning process and on the big day. The facility is ADA accessible and security is available for the safety of all your guests.

Highly recommend!

If you are looking for a loft-style venue in Chicago, where you don’t need to bring in a ton of decor to make the space beautiful, I would highly recommend The Arbory!

The space is flawlessly decorated, and the greenery and plants throughout make the space feel so special. Shay and the rest of The Arbory team were amazing to work with as well.

Literally a Magical Wedding

We had the wedding of our literal dreams at this venue! The Arbory is stunning and had everything i dreamed of- plants galore, with a beautiful chandelier and stunning bridal suite and wall art and brick! Every aspect is stunning! The aesthetic is one you know and instantly recognize/desire if it’s yours. Let me tell you it will never disappoint. Candle walls and plant walls, Even the bathrooms are on point lol. The event space aside, the team is incredible. The venue allows you to use vendors you desire, with their approval. You are able to choose anything to your hearts desires, and never forced into anything, which many venues do. I love this aspect, i was able to cater phenomenal food, and drinks vendors as well as do a lot of things myself due to their accommodations. They were so great, they also were able to hire out staff for me as well which was incredibly helpful as they were vetted and trustworthy.

Prior to the event they gave me great tours and explained so many things to me (when you know nothing about planning this is key and so helpful, kind, and considerate). They helped me find wedding insurance and explained so many steps. Lastly they were incredibly communicative throughout everything!! Emails like crazy and always responsive. I’m a project manager in my daily life so trust me when i say they were great at project management and communication!

The staff were so sweet and said they really enjoyed the event as well. We’re Arab and had a cultural wedding and they were so accommodating to changes and lateness and many aspects that they may not have been used to! We typically have large events but we managed to commit to the 190 limit and i’m so happy we did because it was STUNNING AND MAGICAL!! Thank you to everyone at the Arbory for all your help!

The space is very intimate and really allows for a stunning event. Everyone loved it!

10/10 Recommend

Shay and the whole staff at The Arbory were incredible to works with. They accommodated all of our last minute changes and additions with no issues at all. They worked with all of our vendors to ensure a seamless experience, not to mention the venue itself is amazing! The greenery and all of the in-house decor made for a picture perfect evening, and we would absolutely recommend The Arbory to everyone!
