Below you’ll find a list of my favorite wedding venues in the Chicago suburbs.
Chevy Chase Country Club
One of my favorite venues and one I’ve photographed many times. Chevy Chase has two spaces to choose from and all inclusive package options to make planning your reception as simple as possible. The backdrop is their gorgeous golf course which has plenty of options for gorgeous photos.
With multiple indoor and outdoor locations for either your ceremony or reception the Morton Arboretum offers plenty of options. Combine that with acres of perfectly maintained landscapes, there’s no shortage of idyllic photo opportunities.
Chicago Botanic Gardens
Loads of indoor and outdoor spaces and picturesque gardens, lakes, fountains, and woodlands make the Botanic Gardens an ideal location for your wedding. If you’re planning your event in the north suburbs, this is definitely a spot to consider.
Chic industrial style in the heart of the west suburbs. Located in downtown Aurora, the space shows its industrial roots while still being bright, modern, and luxurious. If you’re looking for that industrial Chicago look but with better parking and less traffic, Co251 is one to consider.
Originally built as a summer home between 1904 and 1908 by the Armour family. It was built and styled in an Italianate fashion with grounds designed by landscape architect Jens Jensen. Today it’s part of the Lake Forest Academy and serves as an elegant backdrop for any wedding.
Loft 28 West
A modern, industrial style loft venue located in downtown Aurora. The space features exposed brick, oversized windows, rustic wood flooring, and a private sky deck. A newer venue to the area with options to customize your prefect wedding.
Once a warehouse, the building was renovated with the intent to be a warm and inviting location. Located in downtown Elgin, the space consists of open beam wood ceilings, exposed brick, and wood floors. Combined with the outdoor space, the venue boasts 12,000 square feet of space for hosting your closest friends and family.
The Brix on the Fox
In a previous life the building had been part of a dairy company, but in 2018 the entire facility was restored converting the space into two separate wedding venues. The larger of the two spaces known as the “Two-Sixty” and the other named the “Industria”. Both spaces feature the original and unique yellow exposed brick, large windows, vaulted wood ceiling, and private bridal suites.
A truly one of a kind venue with unique touches throughout, most notably their wall of classic motorcycles and Airstream lounge. You’ll find 6,000 square feet of combined indoor and outdoor space perfect for hosting small events all they way up to seated receptions of up to 150.
