Touring Walden was a dream: the bright ethereal lighting, the floral installation by Steve’s Flower Market, the built in archway and stunning decor, it was all lovely. To top it all off, Walden has their own internal planning company, Plum and Ivy, who plans hundreds of events for them every year. The venue is complete with a bridal suite and upscale bathroom with a shower to ensure that wedding celebrants have enough space and amenities to get ready for the big day. There is also generous space for bridal parties to fix up hair and makeup, attached to the bridal suite. The venue provides tables that are hand crafted from repurposed wood, flatware, napkins, glasses, and is truly a full-service investment. From start to finishing touches, this venue has a wow-factor that will impress your guests and leave them feeling cozy with their built-in tap system, complete with craft cocktails and beers to choose from in an array. Next door is the Midwest Coast Brewing Company, which supplies Walden with yummy drinks as well as Half Acre Brewing, located further from the venue but still packing a punch in every sip on tap. Feast your eyes and your taste buds, crack open a craft beer or cocktail, and peek below at this gorgeous Chicago wedding photography shoot!
