A New Leaf – Wedding Venue

A New Leaf event space is a perfect location for contemporary couples looking for a non-conventional wedding venue. The space accommodates intimate to medium sized weddings parties with their open loft concept. A New Leaf’s award-winning multi level interior allows a natural flow for your guests throughout the venue. Cocktail hour can simultaneously be hosted both inside and move out into the courtyard, receptions can vary from heavy hor d’oeuvres affairs to seated dinners on the main floor. With iron metal work throughout, concrete floors, exposed brick walls, and a staircase that floats above guests for speeches, this is a unique and unforgettable space for wedding celebrations. A New Leaf event space is located on Wells street in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood, just steps to the thriving streets of Old Town. This venue is an active flower shop that sits adjacent to their reception space. Both serve as whimsical locations for photography backdrops. Additionally, the many nearby hotels and landmarks offer vignettes to capture wedding day photos.
