Adler Planetarium Wedding

Adler Planetarium is one of Chicago’s most premier wedding venues, located at the end of Solidarity Dr. on museum campus overlooking Lake Michigan with a panoramic Chicago skyline view.

Adler Planetarium offers both indoor and outdoor ceremony ceremony options for up to 325 people and space for up to 600 guests when setup for an indoor seated reception.

Your guests can take in the iconic Chicago skyline with a cocktail hour or wedding ceremony on the Nancy A. Petrovich Skyline Terrace. The floor-to-ceiling- windows in the The Daniel F. and Ada L. Rice Solarium wrap across the entire space and provide a perfect view of Chicago’s famous skyline  looking across Lake Michigan.

Anna and Food For Thought (the exclusive caterer for the space) are sure to wow your guests with beautiful and tasty hors d’oeuvres and entrees. Don’t forget to look into the incredible lighting options the space offers. You can totally transform the space to whatever look you desire. There’s something special about a spending the night dancing under the stars and looking out over the city lights!

The panoramic view of the city from Adler Planetarium is THE iconic Chicago skyline view. There's a few good outdoor ceremony venues in Chicago with city views, but Adler is at the very top of the list. We love shooting summertime receptions in the glass solarium, the sunsets are out of this world!
Pro Tip: Even if you're not getting married at Adler Planetarium, it's worth making a stop on museum campus for some portraits in front of the epic skyline - especially if you're headed to a venue on the South side like Bridgeport Art Center or Lacuna Lofts.
