I want to know more!

All couples are welcome and celebrated.

Room 1520 Minimonies

For the couples who are madly in love, but not so in love with planning or big extravagant weddings. A pre-planned day with customizable options and upgrades to make sure the headache of planning is gone, without taking the care out too. 

  • A beautiful, meaningful day for a wedding or vow renewal
  • To avoid the stress of planning a big wedding or guest list 
  • To get legally married in Chicago before a bigger party or destination wedding
  • To have the ease of a courthouse wedding, without the drab lighting and low ceilings

A 90 minute time slot alllll to yourself--and up to 20 of your closest friends and family--at Room 1520. 

This may be for you if you want:

You get a 90 minute time slot all to yourselves at Room 1520, located in Chicago's vibrant West Loop. 

Room 1520 is a bright and spacious venue, complete with a rooftop for wonderful photo ops and a back alley with ivy walls and string lights. 

There are plenty of wonderful restaurants nearby for you and your guests to enjoy a post-wedding meal to keep the celebration going.

A bright, spacious venue

I focus on giving natural poses and prompts to bring out the natural laughter, happy tears, and let you soak up all those fleeting feelings while I document it in an un-obtrusive way. 

I use humor and trust to capture everything from the tiny details of your outfit to the tears coming down your cheek, to an epic, wind-blown rooftop photo you can hang on your wall. 

Your final gallery will be delivered within four (4) weeks of the wedding date, with optional rush editing, and will include approximately 100-200 photos depending on guest list size, moments, and other factors.

Natural, fun, colorful wedding photos

Whether you're secretly eloping or want to share this with a few friends and family, you're covered. Up to 20 guests are welcome to join you in saying your vows to each other and sealing it with a smooch (or a hug, clink of champagne glasses, or just a big fat WOOHOO, WE DID IT!) 

Up to 20 guests

The goal is to keep this simple for you--but not cookie cutter. 

A gorgeous, fresh-flower ceremony backdrop will be created in spring colors by the ever-talented The Flower Girl Company for each couple to stand in front of during one of your most important moments together yet. 

You also get personal florals (bouquet/s and boutonniere/s) in the option of matching spring colors, or plain white and greenery. Use it for photos, then take it home with you to enjoy! 

Semi-custom florals

And perhaps the most exciting part...if you're here to get legally married, you need an officiant more than anyone else on this whole page...and we have a great one for you! 

Debra Valentino of Vista Events will work with you via an optional 30 minute call to nail down your details, preferences and language. There are also options to add in a love story summary, custom unity ceremony, and/or personalized vow-writing help.

Marriage License processing is included. 

Any religious affiliation, sexual orientation, etc is welcome and affirmed. 

Professional Officiant

Haven't heard of ECBG? You're about to fall in love! 

Each booking includes a 4" round cake with plain white frosting and some florals, with the choice between chocolate or vanilla cake (gluten free available).

You can also upgrade the size of cake to serve more people, or upgrade to a more unique abstract foil-splatter design. 

Semi-custom cake

Instagram waits for no we gave you and your guests a boxwood wall with a neon sign to take those photos right away! 

Who says a small wedding means ditching the fun things? Use it when you walk in, before you head out, or have it for your guests while you (the couple!) are out taking portraits for a few moments. 

Boxwood photo wall

For you and your guests. 'nuff said.
