Year Round Nature

January 21, 2010

Venues with a view are in high demand.  So many of my client’s put windows at the top of their venue wish list.  Fortunately Chicago has many fantastic venues with a great view and The Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum is one of my favorites.  

 The Nature Museum has many great features including indoor and outdoor access.  The ravine (top left photo) is stunning and perfect for an outdoor ceremony or cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.  The ravine has nice shade so your guests will not get too hot. 


The Nature Museum also has a huge terrace on the 2nd floor that can be 100% open air and can seat up to 200 guests.   You can also tent the terrace  for year round events.  When the terrace is tented you can seat up to 300 guests.  (This photo was taken by Sarah Alair) 


The South Gallery has floor to ceiling windows and is spectaular year round.  In the summer and fall the surrounding trees are in bloom and rich with colors.  In the winter the branches from the trees and snow on the ground create a very cool, romantic look.  Pair it with branches for your floral and you have an instant theme.  (This photo was taken by Becky Hill


The Nature Museum has breathtaking views of Lincoln Park and North Pond.  The museum also features  the Judy Istock Butterfly Haven; which your guests are able to enjoy during cocktail hour.  Consider this unique venue for your wedding ceremony and reception or your next social/corporate event!
