    Working with Leslie at the Ivy Room made our entire wedding planning process stress-free! Honestly, people would ask me how planning was going and how stressed I was and I didn't understand why because Leslie made everything so easy! No stress at all. I totally trusted her. She was very responsive to my emails and always helpful. The big day couldn't have been any smoother. The food was also amazing! Multiple people told me it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. They set up the bridal room for my husband and I to have a private moment after the ceremony. When we got there they had two of every hor d'oeuvre waiting and our favorite cocktails. You seriously cannot go wrong with having your wedding at the Ivy Room!

    Working with the Ivy Room - and our coordinator, Abby C., in particular - was the brightest spot of our wedding. The gorgeous space obviously speaks for itself; I had no idea when we booked how impressive Abby and the rest of the staff would be. I wish I could take her with me and work with her for every possible project in the world. She was such a fantastic calming presence, seemed invested in helping us realize the event we had imagined yet within the confines of our budget, and never once seemed to be frustrated with my neurotic questions. We have also received so many compliments on the food and guests' experience with all of the hospitality staff, so it seems that all around people had a great experience.

    Thank you so much to Abby and the rest of the Ivy Room staff - I'l keep bugging my husband to plan an anniversary dinner there in the future ;)

    The Ivy Room offers an attentive staff, adaptable space, and delicious food (thank you, Chef Leslie!) for a medium to large wedding. We got married in January and it went perfectly. Special shout outs to Leslie Fuller and Brittany Plfug for their hard work and excellent execution. From the moment we started planning it was a fun and an enjoyable experience. Our families and friends couldn’t stop talking about how wonderful the night was. When it came to us, I couldn’t have asked for anything else. They were so attentive to our needs and our parents as well – the attention to detail was impeccable. I would recommend Ivy Room to anyone getting married in Chicago.

    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!
