Chicago has long been a key player in the luxury wedding scene. A mainstay of style and elegance, Chicago continues to attract locals and out-of-town couples alike. Eager to book the perfect venue, newly engaged couples may begin their search at traditional locations and find themselves feeling disappointed as they tour grand ballrooms filled with dark wood and jewel-toned velvet. After all, no design choice is immune to the passage of time, and the historic Chicago venues of past generations might not match their current ideal of sleek opulence.
Enter Venue SIX10: a truly clean slate where any style can shine. White walls and smooth gray floors ensure that any color palate of decor will look its best. Unique architectural glass provides a modern dramatic backdrop, while 16-foot floor-to-ceiling windows show off the splendor of Chicago’s lakefront. Guests will experience epic views of fresh growth in the spring, Navy Pier fireworks in the summer, vibrant foliage in the fall, snowy shores in the winter, and the crisp clear blue of Lake Michigan all year round.
The pared-down palate is no indication of a lack of features−the amenities at Venue SIX10 abound. Proximity to some of the city’s best hotels, such as The Blackstone and the Hilton Chicago, makes arranging lodging accommodations a breeze. The fact that Grant Park and Buckingham Fountain are right across the street saves on time and transportation costs for taking photos. A large bridal space flooded with natural light and views of the lakefront provides the perfect backdrop to get ready or share an intimate private cocktail hour. And the adjacent outdoor terrace is the ideal spot for portraits and boasts views for miles.
For those looking to celebrate their wedding in a bright, minimalistic setting, Venue SIX10 is just the place. The stunning city view through the award-winning glass façade is breathtaking all on its own, and can help cut down on decor costs without sacrificing that feeling of luxury. And for those looking to work with a decor company to outfit the space, they are free to do so without a clashing rug or curtain in sight. In fact, some of the city’s best vendors have used Venue SIX10 to transform the space into a wedding venue entirely unique to their client, whether that be an editorial-style black and white bash, a draped ethereal dreamscape, or a floral fantasyland. Here, bold colors pop, and neutrals take elegance to the next level.
