The Ivy Room was incredible! We looked at many spaces in the downtown area and none of them felt this good. We saw some gorgeous lake views and some incredible rooms but nothing felt like we could make it ours quite like The Ivy Room. From our first meeting all the way to the day after the wedding Kiran Pinto took care of us like we were family. Kiran aided us in finding the vendors that were the right fit for our vision and insured that vision was carried out on our behalf.

Chef Chris Evangelides helped us create a wedding menu that was one of a kind. The most common thing heard that night..."this is not wedding food". We'll take that as a compliment and kudos to Chef Evangelides. Our captain that evening Brittany Pflug looked after every detail and made sure everything was executed with style. The whole team helped deliver what will surely be one of the best nights of our lives.

We chose The Ivy Room because we liked the space itself and the team behind it seemed to know what they were doing. We were right...they really know what they are doing. I think what surprised us most was how much our guests loved The Ivy Room. You will not be sorry with your choice of this space.

The moment I walked into the Ivy Room, it was a done deal. I didn't even want to look at another venue. I knew I wanted a wedding venue that was elegant, but not cookie cutter and I loved the Ivy Room's refined urban setting of the courtyard and ballroom. Donna and her team are incredible and made the entire process seamless and enjoyable. She played the role of wedding planner and coordinator, helping us pull together all the little details and connect with the best vendors in the area. I always felt like I was her number one priority, even though I know they have non-stop weddings happening at the space. Also, the ballroom is so beautiful, it was a non-issue to move our ceremony inside when the weather refused to cooperate. All in all, the Ivy Room was the perfect choice.

The Ivy Room was the setting for our daughter's beautiful, magical wedding celebration on Sunday June 7, 2015. From my very first conversation with Donna and Christy until the wedding day everything was perfect. The team at the Ivy Room is professional, efficient, detail oriented, courteous, and kind. The preferred vendors they recommended (caterer, floral designer, band, photographer, etc.) were top notch. Everyone seemed to work so well together. My daughter had a vison for her wedding, and they delivered. As the mother of the bride I can honestly say the entire process was stress free and fun. I felt like a pampered guest at our own function, thanks to Donna and Christy.
The main ballroom is beautiful and elegant with clean lines, yet still romantic and intimate. The addition of floor to ceiling drapery adds to the ambiance of the room. Although Chicago's fickle weather did not allow us to have the ceremony and cocktail hour in the ivy courtyard as planned, our back up plan didn't disappoint. The ceremony was set up in the main ballroom allowing for a very taditional and grand feeeling. The cocktails and hors d'oeuvres were served in the newly refurbished downstairs space which is quite lovely and cozy. Luckily, the rain did hold off long enough for the photographer to take all the pre=wedding pictures outside among the ivy and decorative ground cover. Perhaps the best compliment for this lovely venue were the words my daughter exclaimed when Donna brought us up for a sneak peek at the ballroom before the guests were ushered in for dinner and dancing, "Mom, everything is so beautiful. This is just what I imagined for my wedding!" I would highly recommend the Ivy Room and the wonderful people who run it.

This was THE MOST perfect wedding venue....hands down. When I got engaged, I knew that I wanted to get married in the city but I wasn't a modern bride and a lot of venues in the city are very contemporary and modern so my search was kind of hard at first but then I found the Ivy Room. It's stunning, so clean and elegant....it's truly just a beautiful space and you can turn it in to anything that you want!! The courtyard is so romantic and gorgeous...it's like a hidden little garden right in the middle of downtown. Not only did I love the space, but my guests kept complimenting how beautiful it was too! It truly was the perfect space for my wedding!

Oh....and I just adored the staff. They were so amazing to work with and took care of so much for me. I hardly had to worry about a thing! They recommend the BEST vendors and they have made some many amazing enhancements to the space...I really think the Ivy Room is going to be THE PLACE to get married the next couple of years. It's stunning. Trust me....check it out, you won't regret it! Thank you to the fabulous ladies at the Ivy Room too...you helped to give me my dream wedding and I can't thank you enough!!

we had our wedding at the ivy room on april 12, 2014 and everything was spectacular! christy and lara were amazing to work with, both before and during the event. they were responsive to my questions and totally on top of all the details.

the space itself is immaculate: so light, bright and clean. we were able to turn the space into exactly what we wanted. to be in river north in what feels like a special and secret place is so so lovely; i feel very lucky that we were able to have our wedding here (it's already fun to be running around the neighborhood and have the memories) and will recommend it to anyone! cannot say enough good things about our experience; thank you, ivy room!!

My now husband and I knew The Ivy Room was perfect from the first day we toured. Our search for a venue stopped shortly after our very first tour with Christy and Donna over a year out from our wedding! Every time family would come into town, Donna or Christy would happily let us pop in a give them the tour.

Our guests (local and from out of state) STILL can't stop talking about the courtyard. As Father Hurley put it in our ceremony, we truly got the most beautiful weekend of the summer! There isn't a better place to cocktail in all of city. Trust me!

Christy was unbelievably sweet, kind and responsive to all of our many phone calls and emails. She was more than a onsite coordinator -- she really cared about our special day and we had fun talking about little extras along the way.

We don't have one regret...well maybe one, that we can't do it all over again!

The Ivy Room is a beautiful venue. If you're looking for a place with outdoor space in the city, you have to look at The Ivy Room. The outdoor space looks like a hidden garden in the middle of the city. The flowers and foliage in the courtyard provide the perfect backdrop for a wedding. You feel as if you're in a garden, but the space also has a somewhat urban feel. We had our ceremony and cocktail hour in the courtyard, and it was stunning.

The reception area inside is gorgeous. The space is simple and elegant. It is a blank space that you can make your own. Although it is a blank space, it has character. The wood floors are beautiful and the french doors that open to the courtyard are darling. You don't have to compete with anything in the room. There are no loud colors, bad carpet, or light fixtures that you need work around or consider when planning the vision for your reception.

You do have to bring in everything here (music, food, tables, flowers, cake, etc.), but I didn't find that to be difficult. You can to choose exactly what you want that way.

The girls at The Ivy Room are very pleasant to work with. They were present on the day of the wedding, and they worked with my wedding planner to make sure everything went smoothly.

I would highly recommend this venue. I had a really great experience from beginning to end. I wish I could do it all over again!
