What do you think makes eloping in Chicago so special?

Chicago is the heart of the Midwest, offering four beautiful seasons for picture perfect elopements and the best architecture in the world. You can find a big, iconic Chicago location or tuck away in a quiet, urban oasis for your Chicago elopement.

What’s your favorite elopement venue in Chicago?

Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool

What’s a fun fact about you?

Even as a wedding planner and ordained minister, my husband and I eloped, too! I have a soft spot for couples who choose this path.

What do you think makes eloping in Chicago so special?

Chicago is a city with gorgeous buildings, beaches, bridges, and so much beauty! I’ve lived in many cities through the years – you just can’t beat the City by the Lake for its diversity of wedding venues.

What’s a fun fact about you?

My latest hobby is “quilling” – paper mosaic art!
