If you are open to a less traditional, modern city wedding, you should check out New Leaf. The space is definitely unique (any maybe too much for some brides) with it's split level lay out (no elevators), limited seating (comfortably seats 40), and buffet-only reception option. However, if you are willing to consider something a little less formal, the space is gorgeous. We have booked the space for our wedding of approx 80 and are looking forward to a relaxed indoor/outdoor summer wedding. We are also excited to save some money on decorations, as the space is beautiful on its own and requires little beyond the candle package (excited for that!). The staff has been great so far- also very laid back, but responsive and easy to talk to. I am excited to continue working with them and planning our day!

We had our wedding ceremony upstairs, and the reception was downstairs in the two lower levels and the garden. It was PERFECT for our 75 guest wedding! The space is untraditional, in that it has contemporary lines and layout, but a whimsical element with the garden portion.

My fiancé and I didn't want a big open ballroom full of tables where folks would be sitting the entire time. Instead, we wanted our ceremony to be intimate and sacred, and reception to be an upscale-yet-fun-and-comfortable-cocktail-PARTY! A new leaf was perfect for this!
• space lends itself to activity; lots of mingling with the different levels
• best for nighttime weddings: the candle service they provide transforms the space into a magical romantic dream
• food can only be served buffet style, BUT a new leaf is also a florist, and the made an amazing HUGE Floral "tree" for us where the food was; tea light candles were hanging from the branches while peonies, hydrangea, greenery and wisteria draped and sprouted throughout.

•the flowers were superb. I almost cried when I had to toss my bouquet.

•we put the bar and some favors in the garden, and guests floated and mingled through there all night. It was lit with candles, paper lanterns and twinkling lights.

Perfect.

I had my wedding at A New Leaf on the 22nd of June. Not only was the venue unique and a hidden gem in the downtown area, I can not say enough about the flowers. All I said was that I wanted a shabby chic look and use what is fresh. I mentioned that I like a few types of flowers but was open to ideas. Not only was everyone in awe from the minute they stepped into the venue location, I could not stop looking at the flowers. I am in loved with my bouquet and every flower that went into our special day. The peonies (which I requested if fresh) were breathtaking. Rachelle got my vision. Thank you so very much!

I worked with Morgan at the 1645 North Wells location. She was so incredibly helpful with helping me decide on the the flower type I needed and provided me with amazing tips. She's incredibly knowledgable and very friendly. I mainly ordered roses and some other mixed bunches for my wedding event which I then put together myself. The flowers provided by this florist were of top quality, very fresh and hearty. They're truly professionals and understand the business. I couldn't have been happier with Morgan's help and the quality of the flowers.

A New Leaf has a fantastic venue - Chicago style loft, exposed brick and concrete with a gorgeous courtyard and charming attached flower shop. The facility is gorgeous and trendy, the staff on the whole leave something to be desired. They rarely return emails or phone calls. I had to track people down to get answers or make payments. They were generally rude and unhelpful, but in the end I got everything I wanted. On the plus side, A New Leaf also did my flowers. I worked with Brianna and she listened well and gave me exactly what I was hoping for and was willing to work with my budget.

We were sold on A New Leaf from the moment we walked in the door, and couldn't be happier with our choice. It is a unique, modern space for the couple wanting a non-traditional venue for their smaller wedding. The guests were so impressed by the venue, and our florist Andy did a stunning job with the candle treatment and florals to compliment but not overwhelm the fantastic space. We had 70 guests, which fit very well for cocktails, dinner and dancing. The outdoor garden space was amazing for a lovely fall day, and the lighting and tables flow well with the indoor space. If the space at A New Leaf is the style and vibe you are looking for, you can't go wrong with this vendor.

The folks at A New Leaf have an amazing venue. My husband and I were looking for a venu that was in the Chicago downtown area that wasn't traditional and had a unique feel. A New Leaf was perfect for what we wanted. It has a rustic feel to it that transforms into the most romantic venue at night. I recommend getting the candle package - totally worth it. A New Leaf also did our flowers and they were stunning! I'm surprised they don't charge more for the location... its's worth every penny!

We got married at A New Leaf in late July - and LOVED IT! Brianna was our wedding coordinator and was great to work with. She was professional, prompt, laid-back (which was a nice change from the pushy" sell mode, or aloof "couldn't care less" mode of some vendors we interviewed).

Our guests were also very impressed by the space and had a great time exploring and moving around all night. Specific comments they made about the space were "cool," "sophisticated," "unique." A New Leaf is perfect if you want to put a modern spin on a "traditional" wedding reception."

The older folks kind of camped out in the front at tables, which worked well. Some people spent most of the night in the garden, as the weather was perfect and it looked beautiful. Others hung out upstairs at the dance floor.

When you book A New Leaf, they will also be your florist (they operate a flower shop next door to the event space). No worries - beautiful arrangements at a competitive cost.

In the end, everyone had rave reviews and we were super happy!

This venue pretty much speaks for itself. It's just so lovely and unique.
Quality of Serivce/Professionalism is at a 4.0 because I never really knew the contact person for A New Leaf for the day of the wedding. The person's name was never communicated to me. The saving grace here was that there were no issues the day of the wedding that needed someone's attention. So it never came up. Value of Cost is at a 4.5 just due to the limited amount of guests that you can have at this venue due to the size of the space. Not sure the cost of rental really adds up with that amount. But, we wanted a small wedding and this space was PERFECT for it! So, again, just fine for our needs. :) :)

A New Leaf requires that you use them for candles and flowers if you have your wedding/event in their space. Our contact person was awesome!! My only complaint was that I changed the color of the mother's corsages about three weeks prior to the weeding. (From green to white) I received confirmation that the request would be honored. The day of the wedding the corsages showed up with green flowers. Really a minor detail and they looked fine. But, this shouldnt' have been an issue and the colors should have been correct.

Overall, I would highly recommend using the space if you're having a smaller wedding Simply and amazing space that really speaks for itself!! :)

After our original event location fell through, we went back to our list and chose A New Leaf. It ended up being the perfect place for our wedding. Our wedding was small, so the size of the venue was perfect. We also liked the modern/industrial atmosphere as well as the different levels of space. We had the ceremony in the mezzanine, then we had cocktail hour out in the beautiful courtyard (people loved it). We then came in for a sit down dinner in the main space and then back upstairs for dancing! We used the long table in the main space as the bar, which worked perfectly.

I will say that A New Leaf is not the cheapest venue out there. We had monday wedding so that cud down the cost a bit. They also charge extra for the candle treatment, but I would recommend shelling out the extra money because the candles gave the place and amazing ambiance!

I am a believer that you usually get what you pay for, and A New Leaf was not exception. Professional, helpful and a beautiful space.

One final note. if you book there, you have to use them for the flowers, and those are not cheap either. They are drop dead beautiful though! We chose a simple calla lily in a large class vase, and our designer - Rochelle - turned them into a work of art twisting the stems into a beautiful pattern. She asked if we wanted a big arrangement on the long table where the bar was we said we could not afford something that big so she said that she would bake an arrangement of driftwood with hanging candles for free! And it looked wonderful!

I fell in love with A New Leaf the moment I saw it after being referred by a friend, and we actually put down a deposit before we were engaged! The space allows you to create any style you want and is an open canvas. They are very friendly and flexible, and will do everything possible to make your event the experience you're looking to have.

We used A New Leaf for our ceremony and reception space. It is an amazing space on its own, a little oasis in the city- that was a unique space for our guests to celebrate. The day of our wedding I was insistent that we have the ceremony outside, there is a small courtyard that can hold about 100 guests, and the staff very deligently swept the outdoor area of mulberries so that our wedding party could walk without stains. There were many details that the staff helped with, and really went above and beyond for the setup and floral for the day- it was really a perfect spot for our wedding!

There is so much to love about the space, it is easy to overlook the nickel-and-diming that inevitably occurs when a space becomes as wildly popular as A New Leaf. For instance, you can't have an evening wedding here without the candles lit (well, you CAN, but you'd be removing a major romantic element), but you'll pay dearly for having them lit. The beautiful manzanita tree that sits on the long buffet table does not do so for free during weddings, either. You have to pay them NOT to remove it.

You must go through them for all your flowers, of course. Our florist, Brianna, did a great job with my bouquet -- it looked really great. We had asked for two to three single stems per table (which, with labor, cost $15/table!). I had made a specific request to have green or white allium of some sort, and this was reflected in my invoice. But no allium was used in the bud vases. I don't know what happened with this. Couldn't have been that it was not in season, as I saw large patches of white allium along Ashland Ave. on the way to the venue!

And for the insane amount of money they charge, you'd think they could update the bathrooms a little bit. They were kind of gross. They'd easily make enough money in one night for a simple renovation.

Another thing I noticed...we were there on a Sunday and had the space 'til midnight. Our DJ and caterers were out the door by 11:30, and we were waiting for our ride at 11:40. The guy from A New Leaf sat impatiently nearby fidgeting with his iPhone as we waited and seemed really bothered that we were still there. Sorry dude!

All that said, the positives were MANY, and we continually received compliments on the space throughout the night. It was the PERFECT size for our small party of 51. I would not recommend going much over this number. The mezzanine served us perfectly for both the ceremony and the dancefloor. The courtyard was gorgeously in bloom and was a funky backdrop for many photographs (though the benches were quite dirty and we had to get paper towels in order to allow our guests to sit out there). Haha, okay...that was my last criticism.

We used A New Leaf for our reception space and our flowers.
Not only was the space amazing but the decor was fabulous!
It was urban, fresh, and modern!
The flower and candle decor looked like it was out of a magazine.
I only wish I had more time to look at the space and take it in before having to chat with everyone!

They made my vision, a reality.

A New Leaf in Lincoln Park has one of the most beautiful small event spaces in the city, right next door to their amazing flower shop. The space has three levels, which holds about 150 people total, but the rental fee is a flat $3,000 for the entire space for an entire day. We used the mezz level for the ceremony, the bottom for our luncheon, and the adjoining courtyard for an extra social space, which turned out to be a guest favorite (we literally couldn't get them to leave the reception once they found it!). The staff are down to earth, flexible, talented, and experts at decorating the space with their gorgeous work. This was the only time in the planning process when I had to tell a vendor that we actually wanted to spend MORE than their original quote - the flowers are an excellent value. Our experience with them was so great, I'm a loyal customer of the shop and would have another event there in a heartbeat. This place is elegant, has great soul to it, and couldn't be easier to plan an event in. It books up a year in advance, but if you're flexible with dates, you may luck out with a cancellation. We secured a date on a Sunday five months out.

A New Leaf in Lincoln Park has one of the most beautiful small event spaces in the city, right next door to their amazing flower shop. The space has three levels, which holds about 150 people total, but the rental fee is a flat $3,000 for the entire space for an entire day. We used the mezz level for the ceremony, the bottom for our luncheon, and the adjoining courtyard for an extra social space, which turned out to be a guest favorite (we literally couldn't get them to leave the reception once they found it!). The staff are down to earth, flexible, talented, and experts at decorating the space with their gorgeous work.
