    Truly outstanding!

    It was such a pleasure to work within the historic, gorgeous, newly renovated Colvin House! This venue is the perfect site for an intimate wedding ceremony, and reception, while providing ample space for guests to spread out between the two floors and handsome brick laid courtyard perfectly accented with strung lights to enjoy cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and dinner. There are so many wonderful chair, table, bar set-up options throughout the premises to not only accommodate guest, catering, and DJ needs, but exceed any bride or groom’s vision for their big day. The captivating interior design and architecture throughout open up a whole new realm to capture breathtaking photo ops (every bride’s fav!) – from the cozy, upstairs bridal suite with balcony windows to let in natural lighting to the main hardwood floor staircase winding down beneath their radiant signature chandelier to the courtyard with enough space to provide plenty of room to dance, and just steps away from Lake Michigan for an elegant and romantic background setting of the waves or Chicago skyline. Amelia and Laura (events/management) were incredible to work beside, as they were noticeably attentive to the bride and groom’s needs, their family members, and fellow hired employees throughout the night. The event ran smoothly from beginning to end, and we certainly can’t wait for another opportunity to work with them in the future! Highly recommend!

    Winter wedding at the Colvin House

    The Colvin House was a beautiful and affordable venue to host our wedding. We loved the architecture of the house and the proximity to the lake and city. Laura and her team were very flexible and easy to work with leading up to the wedding and on wedding day. I would sincerely recommend engaged couples to consider getting married here!

    Uniquely wonderful venue

    Colvin House is a charming, fabulous space for gatherings of up to 100. Its quirky and compelling architecture started a lot of conversations, and the staff could not have been more helpful. We had a wonderful event!

    Beautiful, unique space for a special party!

    Colvin House is such a special gem. The location and charm can't be beat, and both Angela (owner) and Laura (manager) went above and beyond when our plans evolved (as plans do) to help insure we -- and our guests -- had a wonderfully memorable, comfortable and beautiful experience. Super bonus? The lake is just across the street, expanding the potential for awesome photos. Everyone was impressed with the architectural details inside, too -- there is so much to explore (purple bathroom, carved pillars, intricate ceilings, chandeliers, Juliet balcony, I could go on). We also appreciated the ample restroom options for guests (an extra block is downstairs) and a nice, working kitchen. What also made the venue a great fit was their granting us the freedom to secure vendors of choice -- important to us.
