Newberry Library Chicago wedding ceremony and reception | Unique reception venue | Ariel & Daren


If you’re looking for a unique venue in Chicago, the Newberry Library just might be the perfect option. There is plenty of space filled with gorgeous light, and a park right across the street. This is where Ariel and Daren had their wedding ceremony, photos and reception.

A huge thank you to Todd Fischer for not only making out Bride look absolutely stunning, but also for connecting me to this amazing couple!!

From the Bride….

‘Favorite purchase…My gown! I love it and am definitely going to wear it again! Who says it can only be worn once?!

Favorite wedding memory…Having all of our loved ones, family and friends, under the same roof together.

Funny moments…My sister lent me her veil. Right before walking down the aisle, she stepped on it and ripped it. LOL

If I had a super power, I would slow down time, so I could have soaked in everything in and committed it to memory.

Advice for couples…Have fun with it. It’s a shit ton of work but should be fun!! Everything will always work out- try not to stress. Hire a day of coordinator. Well worth the money. No one in your wedding party nor your guests should be worried and working on day of logistics. The focus should be on enjoying and celebrating your love and union. ‘
