Winter Weddings

Winter weddings are elegant affairs, and it is understandable why so many couples choose to have them. A winter wedding can either add one more joyous event to the holiday season, or bring excitement to the sedate months of January and February after celebrating has turned to winter boredom. However, no matter what time of year you choose to host your wedding celebration, an extremely important factor is always going to be the chosen location.

Choosing the right Chicago wedding venue for a winter ceremony is not easy. There are a number of extravagant locations, but not all of them will meet each person’s individual criteria. Outdoor ceremonies are usually out of the question with our notorious temperature lows and snowstorms, but that doesn’t mean you don’t want to embrace the wintry atmosphere around you. Or perhaps you want to invoke a cozy, extravagant theme, focused on elegance and glittering beauty. No matter your vision, Food For Thought can help make your dreams come true.

The Perfect Chicago Wedding Venue

Food For Thought’s premiere event location, 19 East, is set in the heart of Chicago’s South Loop. This versatile, 10,000 square foot space is filled with history. It was once owned by the Chicago Illuminating Company, and has since gone through many transformations. It is an urban structure with built in marble bars, high ceilings, adjustable lighting, private rooms, hardwood floors, and much more.

19 East is perfect for nearly any kind of event you could imagine, and incidentally works wonderfully as a wedding venue, for both ceremonies and receptions. The space is large enough to host sit down dinners for up to 250 guests, and receptions for up to 500. We have chairs and tables available, including 25 sixty-inch rounds, 315 silver chameleon chairs, 10 six-foot tables, 40 silver chameleon barstools, and more.

We have also partnered with several stellar event vendors who can bring any vision to life, and know exactly how to turn 19 East into the wedding venue of your dreams. Furthermore, you will work with our experienced event consultants who will help you put together the most spectacular wedding you can imagine. You can relax knowing that our experts will make sure every detail is just right.
