We had our wedding ceremony in Ruggles Hall. It was a beautiful venue, and Chayla and Jessica were so helpful with planning and coordination (especially making sure my groom and I didn't see each other before the ceremony). Thank you!Sent on 03/24/2017

The Newberry Library was the absolute PERFECT venue for our fall downtown Chicago wedding. Karen and her staff were an absolute breeze working with throughout the wedding planning process. She was KIND, professional, responsive, helpful, etc. etc. etc. When you work with Karen at The Newberry Library, not only do you get the FANTASTIC venue but you also get the opportunity to work with a truly great vendor. I cannot rave enough about Karen and her staff.Sent on 11/20/2014
The Newberry Library felt like a hidden gem amongst all other wedding venues in the city. The architecture is absolutely beautiful inside and out. The beautiful entrance, large lobby for cocktail hour, grand staircase, and warm, cozy and inviting Ruggles Hall all made our wedding a day to be talked about and remembered for years to come.
I enjoyed that The Newberry allowed some flexibility in vendor choices- they provide a list of fantastic caterers to work with (all of which are great choices.) You will not be disappointed in your choice to have your wedding or event at The Newberry Library.
