Best wedding decision! Stress free, classy, & elegant wedding with the Ivy Room

Wow - where do I start? From the gorgeous courtyard & delicious food (& cocktails!) to the impeccable service and seamless coordination (Natalie is amazing), I cannot recommend the Ivy Room enough!

We held our wedding reception at the Ivy Room in July 2023 and it was one of the best decisions we made! Natalie was so wonderful to work with and made the entire process stress-free! We felt so well taken care of and not a single detail went overlooked. 10/10 recommend!

Beautiful Space!

When my husband and I toured wedding venues in Chicago, we immediately fell in love with this one. It is smack dab in the middle of downtown Chicago, which was great since we had so many out of town guests excited to tour the city. My wedding was in May and the outdoor courtyard was absolutely GORGEOUS. The wall of ivy had bloomed and made the ceremony space feel very intimate and romantic. We were able to do the ceremony and cocktail hour outdoors and the reception indoors. Both spaces looked classy, but still warm. This venue comes with its own caterer that you must use. No worries though, their food is AMAZING. I will say the pricing for this venue is higher than many others in Chicago, but it comes inclusive of many items that you'd usually have to hire separate vendors for or create yourself (tables, chairs, linens, personalized menus, uplighting, etc.). Pamela was the Ivy Room coordinator we worked with and she was very responsive and accommodating to questions and requests that we have. Overall, we loved the way our wedding turned out and would highly recommend this venue.

Best Downtown Chicago Wedding Venue

We booked Ivy Room for our July wedding because it is stunningly beautiful and we knew the food would be great through Lettuce Entertain You (it was). What really ended up making it stand out, though, was the level of professionalism from top to bottom and the attention to detail for each moment of our reception. Abby was a joy to work with and was accommodating of every decision and last minute change that we wanted. The wait staff were awesome and attentive. We even got multiple compliments on the bartenders, which we didn’t know was a thing people complimented. And a special shout-out to the maitre d’ Giuseppe who was magically always there with whatever we needed as if he could read our minds. We would recommend Ivy Room to any couple looking for a perfect spot for downtown Chicago wedding.

As a wedding photographer, having the right venue for a wedding is so crucial to beautiful images. The Ivy Room is no exception! It's an absolutely stunning place - from it's jaw-dropping courtyard and wall of ivy to its beautiful reception room, this is one of my favorite places to shoot!
