Bridgeport Art Center - Skyline Loft Wedding - 04.22.17

Incredible Venue. Romantic Floral. Seamless Execution.

Chicago is home to the best unique wedding venues in the nation. For contemporary brides and grooms lofty venues with wooden beams, exposed duct work, and worn hardwood floors create a beautiful backdrop for their special day. 

We had the pleasure of partnering with Amanda & Ben for their wedding this past April at Chicago's Bridgeport Art Center Skyline Loft. Five stories high, this loft venue boasts incredible views of the Chicago Skyline and ample space for a sizable wedding. For Amanda and Ben, they knew they wanted a space that could host both the ceremony and reception so that guests did not have to move from one location to another. 

Combining Vintage and Natural with Industrial and Exposed

Combining a variety of textures, a hint of romanticism, and organic greenery, the venue was transformed from a raw wooden space to a beautifully juxtaposed environment of soft and hard textures. Varied glass vessels added a slight vintage flair, while seasonal white stock and garden roses filled the space with a warm and spicy scent. 


Amanda and Ben could not have been any more incredible to work with, and the line up of vendors they put together made the evening a breeze to execute. Huge shout out to Dabble Me This Photography for capturing the evening so well. You can see more pictures of the day HERE
