Attend Our Wedding
Summer is the best season in Chicago, and we encourage you to consider making a long weekend out of your trip! Our wedding happens to be the same weekend as music festival Lollapalooza, so we recommend making travel and hotel arrangements early. If you're flying in from out of town, you can fly into either O'Hare or Midway and get downtown via the Blue Line (O'Hare), Orange Line (Midway), Uber, Lyft or cab.
We've negotiated discounted room block rates at three downtown hotels. There are a limited number of rooms in each block, so we recommend booking early. Room rates are valid from Thursday, August 3 - Monday, August 7. AirBnB can also be a great option--contact us if you have questions about which neighborhoods to consider.
La Quinta Inn & Suites -- $169/night: Located in The Loop, La Quinta is just a short walk to Sears Tower, the downtown theater district and the Riverwalk. It's about a 10 minute drive to Prairie Production, our wedding venue, which is located in the West Loop.
Raffaello Hotel -- $179/night: At the north end of the Magnificent Mile, the Raffaello is adjacent to the famous Hancock Building. It also offers rooftop Drumbar, a great place to get a drink and check out the skyline. The Raffaello is about a 20 minute drive to Prairie Production.
Westin Michigan Avenue -- $239 & $249/night: The Westin is also located across from the Hancock Building in the Gold Coast. If you're looking for a more upscale option, this is a good pick. The Westin is about a 20 minute drive to Prairie Production.
Prairie Production is located in the West Loop at 1314 W. Randolph St. It's just west of Randolph's "Restaurant Row," near the intersection of Randolph and Racine.
If you are staying in the city, we strongly recommend taking Uber, Lyft or a cab to and from the wedding. Traffic is often time-consuming in Chicago and parking can be expensive--plus this way you can enjoy our open bar that much more.
There is limited street parking available on Randolph Street near Prairie Production. If you want to secure parking in advance, try a service like SpotHero, which allows you to reserve nearby parking spots before you arrive.
