Incredible Experience!

We worked with Gina and Julia from The Metropolitan, and everything went unbelievably smoothly. The venue was all-inclusive, which took a lot off of our plate, and literally nothing went wrong day-of, which we couldn't believe was possible.

In terms of the wedding itself, the venue was perfect. The view from the Sears Tower was gorgeous, and we were able to take wedding photos on the sky deck. The food, both appetizers and entrees, was the best we've ever had at a wedding. Couldn't be happier with our decision!

Phenomenal experience

Our wedding at The Metropolitan was incredible. Choosing the Metropolitan was one of the best decisions we made. The staff was absolutely amazing, most notably Gina Trombetti who worked with us for over a year as we planned the wedding of our dreams. Gina was an incredible communicator and efficiently and effectively got things done. She was so easy to work with and made our vision a possibility. The venue was stunning and our guests are still raving about The Metropolitan. The food was extremely high quality and the service was spectacular. There was absolutely no detail that was overlooked. HUGE thank you to Gina and the Metropolitan!!!

Exceptionally Beautiful!

We held a small, intimate reception here - the venue was much more beautiful than we ever imagined. We were on the 67th floor of the Willis Tower, so the view was unmatched. On top of that, the food and service were fantastic. Lorena was also extremely helpful and professional during our communications to reserve the space!
