About The Crystal Gardens

The Crystal Gardens on Chicago’s Navy Pier, is home to a beautiful, one-acre botanical garden. The garden is housed in a six-story glass atrium with a 50-foot arched ceiling, and combines the wonder of the outdoors and comfort of the indoors. Beautiful surroundings make it the ideal place to host weddings and wedding receptions. We have more than 80 live palm trees, lush foliage, hanging “twinkle lights,” and dancing “leapfrog” fountains, to provide a gorgeous, natural backdrop to your wedding.

We also have no room rental fee, simply a food and beverage minimum. There is room to accommodate anywhere from 100 to 1,500 people, making the Crystal Gardens ideal for a wedding reception of any size.

    Beautiful venue, rockstar employees!!

    The venue itself is gorgeous! Christina Molinaro is so awesome to work with, and is so knowledgeable about the venue. The food is amazing, and if your wedding is in the summertime, fireworks is just an added bonus! Price is reasonable considering the location. Highly recommended.

    Kerry Bowler is the bomb!! She treated us like her life depended on it! I don't have enough words to describe her and the Crystal Gardens team but I'll try: professional, punctual, nice people (inside and out), accommodating, approachable, flexible. It's endless. I would do my wedding again right here and with these same people.

    We held our offsite party here for our annual sales kick off meeting. The service were highly professional, responsive and high quality. I would recommend using this venue.
