Chicago Elopement with Guests : Melissa and Justin

Creativo Loft

Melissa and Justin celebrated their intimate elopement wedding with around 20 of their family and friends at Creativo Loft in Chicago.

This was a fun summer casual wedding, and we loved the bride’s halter style short dress, and the groom’s cool beige jacket-less suit. Their wedding rings were both enchanting with the bride’s emerald stone and the groom’s custom engraved design. With a champagne toast and time to mingle with guests, this is a fun and easy way to celebrate a marriage.

They selected our special Group Elopement package, which is a two-hour ceremony and celebration at Creativo Loft, and may be customized with a la carte add-ons. They included additional time with photographer Giorgio. Before their ceremony, Giorgio met the couple at their hotel and took some portraits there before going to a nearby stone and ivy garden courtyard on Michigan Ave. for outside wedding portraits. Creativo Loft is located adjacent to downtown Chicago, less than 2 miles from Michigan Ave., so any great portrait location in the downtown area or along Lake Michigan is easy to get to within 5 to 15 minutes from our venue. Couples that choose this package also sometimes have us order light appetizers and/or plan to go to a restaurant afterwards. In addition to the usual package upgrades, we can also help couples find and book restaurants and coordinate their after-elopement plans. Please contact venue director Sarah for more information if you are interested in having a similar wedding celebration.

Microwedding Special Package: Classic Americana

Sarah Toulouse

Just in time for the end of summer, and as we drift into cozy fall comfort food season in Chicago, we are excited to introduce our latest special Microwedding package theme: Classic Americana.

Creativo Loft Chicago Microwedding package

Creativo Loft Chicago Microwedding package

As with our other Microwedding packages (Italian Buffet and Taco Bar), this is a package especially made for something in between an elopement and a regular wedding.  (P.S. we can also customize these packages to work for baby showers and other family celebrations too! Please contact Sarah to find out how.)  

If you're ready to celebrate your marriage with 20-30 of your favorite people, with an intimate and semi-casual 3-hour wedding, including all of the essentials -- 4 hours photography, officiated ceremony, flowers, dessert, music, your choice of linen colors, and catering . . . this package will be just right for you.  This particular variation of our Microwedding packages features classic Americana catering like fried chicken, BBQ pulled pork, roast beef au jus, and other homestyle choices, as well as strawberry shortcake and assorted brownies for dessert. 

While we generally streamline these all-inclusive packages to be easy and stress free with pre-set options, there is always some room for customizing. Rather have something pumpkin spiced for fall instead of strawberry shortcake? No problem. Are you vegetarian or gluten free? The caterers we work with have some substitute options. And, of course you get to pick your colors for linens and flowers, and can even bring some of your own minor decorations if you like. 

Please see all of our current Microwedding packages on our Services page, or contact venue manager Sarah to learn more or schedule a meeting.
