Ravenswood Event Center Wedding

Ravenswood Event Center is a former billboard factory and warehouse turned loft-style event space, with huge open showroom on the ground floor and jaw-dropping top floor Atrium. 

The top floor Atrium at Ravenswood Event Center features huge glass windows along the east and west facing walls. An arching wood ceiling with exposed steel trusses defines the space, rising to more than 30 feet at its tallest point. The Atrium can seat up to 200 for ceremonies, 100 for seated dinners and more than 150 for cocktail receptions.

One floor below, The Loft space features exposed brick and timber ceilings plus rough-hewn wood flooring to provide a warm, intimate atmosphere. The Loft can accommodate 180 guests for seated dinners and up 250 standing guests for cocktails.

Downstairs on the ground level, the Billboard Showroom has the most square footage with space to accommodate large weddings. The vaulted skylights and steel truss work provide a serious wow-factor. Vintage neon signs and a classic car collection along the outer walls make the space truly one-of-a-kind.

WHY WE LOVE IT

This was probably the first true loft wedding venue that I shot at in Chicago. It's still one of my favorite locations in the whole city. I love the visual variety between the different rooms, but the top floor atrium is a showstopper! Plus it's in my neighborhood, so I might be a little bias.
Pro Tip: REC is an easy walk around the corner from the Irving Park Brown Line stop. Consider taking the train with your wedding party for a unique Chicago experience! If you're just getting started with your planning check out the IndieWed Wedding Show. You'll get to walk through the space and meet lots of great vendors (I'll even have a special giveaway for couples at the event).
