Facilities and Capacity
At the heart of downtown Elgin, a treasure trove of late 19th-century architecture, The Haight pays tribute to its environs whilst keeping one eye on the future. A combination of exposed brownstone walls, rugged timber framework, and polished hardwood floors welcomes guests upon arrival. With space for a sizeable occasion, guests can relax and enjoy their evening under the warm golden glow of its elegant light fixtures. Upstairs provides an equally spectacular setting in the form of a recently constructed roof-top deck. Built with materials complementary to its downstairs sibling, this space maintains the building’s harmony whilst adding a new dimension. Its large covering ensures a guest list of up to 300 well-wishers can enjoy the fresh air and views of Elgin in comfort. For more intimate gathering The Haight offers the use of its private Vintage Suite, a tastefully appointed room suited to parties of up to 32 loved ones. The venue can be elegantly decorated throughout, with staff providing custom-built furniture and string lighting for your event. The property’s sound system is state-of-the-art and runs through the entire building uniting those inside and on the deck. There is ample parking available on-site, and the premises is wheelchair accessible.
The Haight’s staff consists of veteran events specialists, who are here to help with all the small and large details which make up a wedding. There is a dedicated planning team available to couples that will help with floor plan creation and organizing a timeline for the day.

Staff at The Haight was absolutely fantastic. Despite being in the middle of a pandemic, they made everything smooth and successful. We were able to safely have our wedding, appropriately distanced. Sarah and Brett answered all of my questions(which I had a lot of) quickly and efficiently. I would absolutely hold an event there again.Sent on 11/23/2020

The Wedding Venue of Our Dreams
Words cannot describe how magical our wedding was at The Haight. It was the first venue we looked at and we knew right away that it would be the one. From all of the pre-planning visits and communications to the day of, it was an incredibly easy and rewarding experience with the team. Brett was very informative, helpful, and completely understanding during the whole process. The planning and details all came together, yet we still could not believe how amazing our reception looked! The team exceeded our expectations, making our day truly special. We cannot thank Brett and the team enough for all of their hard work and dedication to making our wedding the best day of our lives. It was an absolute dream, and we give the highest recommendation to The HaightSent on 05/06/2020

Phenomenal venue, even better service
The Haight speaks for itself when it comes to ambiance. But what I want to shout out is the quality of service they provide. Their day-of coordinators are all worth thousands just for the quality and amount of service they give pre-wedding and especially wedding day.Sent on 10/28/2019
Brett was our coordinator and my entire family and bridesmaids kept commenting on his efficiency and just overall helpfulness the entire day. My dad even said, “I feel like every time I needed something or had to ask a question I turned around and he was right there to take care of it or answer it.”
Their system for getting wedding day details from you and who is in charge of what is easy and efficient. And then day of, Brett completely made my vision come to life, and set up all of our personal items for us, coordinated with the vendors, basically took care of every single thing so all I had to do was show up and look good.
The Haight has the whole package, would recommend to anyone!

This is one of my FAVE locations near Chicago. It's rustic elements and amazing staff makes it a unique place. I recommend it to many couples, and can't wait to shoot more weddings there in 2018!
I LOVE working at The Haight. The staff is absolutely fantastic, and the venue is just beautiful. I always enjoy my weddings there, it's no wonder they're always booked up!
