Ceremony and Reception

Both the wedding ceremony and wedding reception will be in downtown Chicago. We’re hoping that transportation to/from each site will be easier, given some of the public transportation options. Also, cabs are pretty plentiful at both the ceremony and reception sites.

To see more info as to where the sites are located, check out the information on our Google Map page.

DePaul University, Rooftop Terrace (Ceremony Site)

DePaul Rooftop Terrace (12th Floor)

DePaul Rooftop Terrace (11th Floor)

Time: 3:30 PM (Ceremony Begins at 4:00 PM)
Address: 1 East Jackson Boulevard (corner of State and Jackson)
Phone: (312) 362-8000

The Jackson Red and Blue Line stops exit out right at State and Jackson, and provide pretty direct access to the ceremony site. There are also a good number of nearby parking lots very close to the site. We’re looking to keep the ceremony short and sweet, and don’t anticipate people needing to park for more than two hours. Street parking, while available, isn’t a guarantee.

We originally looked around this site on March 20th, 2009.

Maxim’s, the Nancy Goldberg Center (Reception Site)

Maxim's: The Nancy Goldberg International Center

Maxim's: The Nancy Goldberg International Center

The Red Line stop at Division/Clark takes you fairly close to the reception site (about 3-4 blocks away, and very walkable). Cabs should be available, as the Ambasador East hotel is literally right next door to Maxim’s.

Additionally, we will be coordinating with a nearby parking lot (located to the West of Maxim’s). We’ll post more info as to the rate and the particulars. There will be no valet service, but it’s literally a half a block away from the site.
