We loved the venue from the moment we stepped foot in the door. Unfortunately, these categories don't give us a space to state how unique and special this venue was for our wedding day. We had both our wedding ceremony and reception here. On the day of the wedding, everything was perfect and we couldn't ask for a better place to share our special day with our family and friends. As far as flexibility goes, they are an established venue and really do not need to be flexible. Clients will do whatever they can to make this venue work within Salvage One's hours of operation. Our only piece of advice would be to check your insurance policy before signing it. We had a bit of an issue with some antiques being damaged during our reception, which was very unfortunate! It was not handled in the most professional way and that would be our only complaint about the entire experience.
We loved this venue, as did all of our guests. The only problem was that they screwed up the table arrangement. They had me take the time to decided where I wanted all of the tables depending on how many seats the table holds. My bridesmaids worked it out, but it was a pain....
I just got married at Salvage One on Saturday, 11/20 and I could not have been happier with our venue! Salvage One was the only venue we actually visited in person. I did a fair amount of research on different venues in Chicago and once I came across Salvage One (I had been there once before), I knew it was at the top of our list. It's located in West Town, very close to where we live. It is a huge loft/warehouse that sells vintage furniture, home goods and other architectural pieces. The space is very warm with exposed brick and hardwood floors and tons of interesting things to look at all around. The price is a bit higher than other venues but they supply all furniture for ceremony/reception for up to 175 so there's no need to rent anything. There is also such a beautiful ambiance that you don't need to spend a lot of money on decor. Once we booked the venue, we worked with Sara throughout the planning stages and she was incredibly nice, professional and helpful. We got so many compliments from our guests about what a great and unique venue we chose, highly recommended!
