    Couldn't imagine a better place for your event!

    Moonlight Studios has everything that we needed in a venue. Spacious and naturally beautiful, it didn't take much to make it look full and gorgeous. Nothing was too open or too cramped for a wedding of about 150. Also Izabela and the team were incredibly helpful and flexible with us, our families, and our other vendors. We are so happy with everything.

    Nowhere else!

    I just had my wedding here this past Saturday and it was more than I could have imagined. Izabela, the venue manager, was such a joy to work with, trusting, professional, and so warm with us. Corey, our day of supervisor, was also very pleasant and so helpful. Both are organized and prompt. The policies are flexible and easy to work with. I was a DIY bride and she allowed us to come in the day before our wedding to set up. The price point is affordable, especially for what you get and work with. We booked the entire place and used every inch. Our day of coordinators were blown away with how flexible the venue was. Our guests loved the space and found it so unique from why they’ve seen. It is a beautiful mix of modern, industrial, and elegance. I’m looking for another excuse to throw an event here because I love it so much! Thank you Izabela and Moonlight!

    Flexible and Accommodating

    They were very flexible in letting us do what we wanted with the space. It's a beautiful space and if you want a custom experience, this is your place.

    Wonderful wedding!

    My husband and I were married at Moonlight Studios this past December, and we had an excellent experience working with them! The event coordinator was responsive and helpful, and they made the whole process smooth and easy. Our guests were commenting the whole night on what a cool space it was for a wedding. It was extremely spacious without feeling empty or overwhelming, and our vendors had an easy time working in the space.

    Maroulis Wedding

    Izabela was phenomenal to work with! The venue was clean, accessible, and so wonderful the night of. Also, the lighting company was fantastic to work with as well (Kaleigh). Our wedding was like a dream! Wouldn’t have had it any other way!!!

    Words can not express how happy we are with Moonlight Studios for our September 1, 2018 wedding! Not only is it a breathtaking space, but Izabela went above and beyond to make our wedding day one of the most beautiful days ever. While most venue choices are focused on the space and layout, there is such a wonderful feeling when the team also brings you such comfort and ease. Izabela is thoughtful, generous and lovely and we are so happy to have been able to share our special day with her at Moonlight. We had an amazing, beautiful wedding in the space and made a new friend along the way!

    We held our wedding at Moonlight Studios on July 28, 2018. We were looking for a venue that wasn't your traditional ballroom wedding and fell in love with Moonlight after one visit. Izabela, the lovely woman that manages Moonlight, was an absolute joy to work with:) We got so many compliments on the space and have absolutely no regrets! Highly recommend if you are looking for a fun, up-scale, industrial venue.

    We absolutely loved Moonlight Studios for our Sept. wedding. We received so many compliments and questions on how we found our venue as everyone seemed to enjoy it! They were very flexible with what we could bring in ourselves to decorate, lighting, everything! Izabela was great to work with - she was very quick to respond and provided us with all the help and information we needed. We starting working with her half way through our wedding planning timeline, due to staff changes, but nothing fell through the cracks at all! She was amazing! We would highly recommend Moonlight Studios and Izabela for any event.

    This place is incredible. Industrial meets chic with concrete walls and floors, exposed brick and crystal chandeliers. My daughter's wedding reception was at Moonlight Studios this weekend and our guests were commenting all night how cool it was. There are multiple rooms to book so we booked the entire space and used one room for cocktail hour and a second to replicate Kilroy's on Kirkwood in Bloomington, IN., where the lucky couple met! The main space was set for a sit down dinner with multiple bars, dessert tables and coffee service. The possibilities are endless for decor and Vive Bridges, the Venue Director, was a dream to work with and so accommodating. If you are looking for a one of a kind venue for that special day, you have to view Moonlight Studios.

    Moonlight Studios

    Cannot thank Moonlight and Isabella enough for the most amazing amazing weekend of our lives! The venue is absolutely gorgeous, and the industrial setting was perfect for our slightly non-traditional Indian wedding! Izabela and the staff were accommodating, communicative and a pleasure to work with. All of our family and friends couldn’t stop raving about the space, especially the uniqueness with it being in the city. The lighting (sound investment) is a bit expensive compared to other vendors, but totally worth it. Overall - absolutely recommend if you want a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

    We were thrilled to have our wedding at Moonlight Studios! The venue is very cool and perfect for us to have our ceremony in one space and reception in another. The manager there was open to any and all of our ideas, and they were very helpful to coordinate with our caterer and florist/decorations. It was a wonderful day!

    Gorgeous venue

    The venue is great! Lighting is not included so make sure you factor that into your budget. The space is amazing and our guests loved it!! We had 26 tables and a dance floor. 238 guests and felt like we fit perfect. Space says holds 300 but I think that would be too many comfortably.
    My only complaint was that they said there would be a built in bar in the reception and bathroom in bridal suite area by the time our wedding happened. It wasn’t done but we were able to do without.

    Moonlight Studios's reply:

    Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review, Jaci! We are thrilled to know everyone loved the venue. 🙂
    To clarify a few of your concerns, Moonlight Studio comes with 22 downlights in the color of client's choice and 4 beautiful chandeliers on dimmers, but the audio is not included. The capacity for a seated dinner witout a dance floor is 330, however, we always say 280 with a dance floor is a more comfortable number. The build-in bar installation date was always uncertain, we would never promise to have something done by a specific time without knowing for sure if it's possible. We apologize for the confusion, but I am glad you were able to utilize our two portable bars.

    Thank you again for choosing Moonlight Studios for your wedding and best wishes on this wonderful journey!

    Moonlight studios was a great venue for us because we wanted to create our wedding environment from scratch. We wanted to bring out the Chicago vibe for all of our family, especially those from out of town (we had a lot of people fly in). There was a great mix of brick, high ceilings and chandeliers. We call our wedding style urban-chic. We brought all of our decor, tables and chairs. We were required to use the sister company, Sound Investments, for any audio/visual things which did add to the cost but in the end, worked out for the best because the buildings were right next to each other. Our DJ was able to work from the balcony up top so it really felt like a party. The event coordinator switched halfway through our planning year but they did their best to make it as seamless as possible. The space was great for our 300 guests although it was a little tight with a mix of rectangle and round tables. We did have to take away some tables to make the dance floor bigger but no one minded so it worked out great! The cocktail rooms were great for our guests. I absolutely love wedding planning and had the greatest time customizing every detail of our wedding. Moonlight was a great place to do all that!

    We loved our wedding at Moonlight Studios. It's a blank canvas that can be worked into so many different themes. It was large enough to accommodate our guests without feeling empty and the acoustics were amazing for our band. Unfortunately, due to a few changes within their events team, we did have quite a few issues with getting timely responses, including a few bits of information (things we thought were included with the venue that were not) that added some last minute items to our budget. Hopefully with the new team in place that won't be a future issue!
