Perfect venue, food, & coordinator - everything you are looking for is right here!
HUMANS GETTING MARRIED! If you are looking for a STUNNING venue, INCREDIBLE food, and the best damn wedding coordinator known to man, stop looking - you will find all of these things with The Ivy Room. The venue is gorgeous on its own, so anything you add on to it will just enhance the natural beauty this place offers - we had both our ceremony and reception here. The courtyard is beautiful, there are a ton of hotels close by, and there is a lot of flexibility when it comes to weather - it rained on our wedding day, we were intended to have the cocktail hour outside, but there is a full bar and cocktail area downstairs that works perfectly! And THE FOOD!!! The Ivy Room caters in-house, and it is incredible - all of our guests LOVED the meal!! Every single person that helped serve our guests during our wedding was extremely friendly, professional, and uplifting, from the bartenders to the kitchen to the servers. Most importantly, you need a day-of coordinator, and Leslie knocked this out of the park. My husband and I raved to everyone we knew about how incredible Leslie was, and when they met her everyone agreed. She was kind, EXTREMELY on top of her sh*t, and ensured the entire wedding ran smoothly - which it did. The entire day was quite literally perfect, and I attest so much of that to Leslie. She was so helpful with the planning beforehand, met with us multiple times, and filled in all the holes that we didn't even know existed.On top of that, she is a lovely woman and SO easy to work with, we were always laughing and felt like we had known her forever. Brides and Grooms, this venue takes the cake when it comes to the best of the best and it is worth every single penny. Thank you dearly to The Ivy Room and to Leslie for the best day of our lives. We cannot rave about you guys enough.Sent on 09/29/2019

An unforgettable day
I had my wedding there this month and everything was AMAZING. For Chicago prices, this was extremely reasonable for our 110 person wedding. I can’t think of one thing where we asked if this was possible and that we were told “no.” No hidden charges, no surprises day of- and Leslie who was our coordinator was a DREAM. Great communication, flexible with our tastings and venue visits since we were out of town, and really made everything unforgettable. Great venue with a lot of flexibility to make sure you can have the wedding of your dreams.Sent on 05/28/2019

Best wedding venue in the city!
We visited over 20 venues around the Chicagoland area and I immediately knew I wanted to get married at the Ivy Room. The understated elegance is what makes the venue so breathtaking. It was the perfect size for our 130 person wedding. We were lucky enough to have good weather for an outdoor wedding in the courtyard - the ivy wall is a simply stunning photo backdrop for a ceremony. Most importantly, the staff at the Ivy Room are spectacular. We worked with Leslie, who was always extremely professional, organized and knowledgable about any questions we had. I felt confident in her day-of, even when it looked like it was about to rain (it didn't!) she never lost her composure. The reception staff and team are great too - service during dinner was very quick and the wait staff were impressive. Overall, we are so glad we chose to get married here - it was perfect!Sent on 12/28/2018
It's always a pleasure to shoot weddings for the Ivy Room. Their recent renovations have taken the venue to a whole new level, and the staff of event coordinators are extremely on top of things. All of our wedding clients have a wonderful experience here!
The Ivy Room is one of my favorite venues in the city! The courtyard is a dream and I've seen the different rooms take so many different shapes. A beautiful, diverse venue in the heart of the city! Their co-ordiators and staff are top notch! Helpful, polite, cheerful and a w e s o m e! Truly a gem in every way imaginable, I can't wait to shoot another wedding at The Ivy Room!
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! Not to mention that the staff is more than friendly and accommodating. After shooting 3 weddings here this year, each wedding is prettier than the last! They continue to wow me with how gorgeous this place is and just all the possibilities to dress it up to make it unique to each couple!
