Venue Spotlight: Chicago Botanic Garden

One of my favorite venues in the whole region is the Chicago Botanic Garden. I have had the opportunity to work at the Garden multiple times over the past few years, and every single times the experience is incredible! Their staff and catering team is top notch. Plus, the property is gorgeous, and your guests have access to the Gardens for the entire day if they want to come over early and explore on their own.

Meaghan and Sean had their summer wedding at the Chicago Botanic Garden in the English Walled Garden. From each starting their wedding days in their own family homes, to incorporating a Celtic handfasting into their ceremony, we hit the right balance of tradition while still incorporating elements that made the day feel very down to earth and infused with the couple’s personalities.

Mallory & Jeremy got married in the Rose Terrace. Mallory’s style brought soft and romantic touches to the day and let the gardens really showcase their own beauty. My favorite part of this day (and so many of our wedding days) were just how lovely their friends and family were to be around. Genuine excitement, celebration and the most relaxed fun atmosphere!
