I enjoyed capturing an editorial design at The Penthouse at Hyde Park wedding venue in Chicago. From this photographer’s perspective, there are many reasons to consider this venue for your wedding day. As I mentioned in a previous post, choosing a venue is one of the first decisions you must make. Therefore, considering what the perfect wedding venue means to you as you weigh the pros and cons of each is very important. I hope this post can provide an insider’s look into what a wedding at The Penthouse at Hyde Park can provide.
As a side note, this is in no way a sponsored post. I love this venue as much as the following describes, and I captured all the following photos with plans to share and serve. Hi, I’m Jen with Pink Spruce Photography, and I want my blog to be a resource for all brides and grooms looking for help planning their weddings. I have photographed hundreds of love stories and want to share a few things that I have witnessed along the way. Thanks for joining me and trusting in my thoughts and wedding expertise!
Here are my top 6 Reasons to Book the Penthouse at Hyde Park Wedding Venue in Chicago:
The Penthouse’s Location in Chicago
The Penthouse at Hyde Park is located in a very picturesque neighborhood of Chicago. In short, the surrounding streets are lined with trees, and the postcard-worthy houses are adorned with beautiful landscaping. There will be no shortage of picture-taking options. Not only will you have the ability for an outdoorsy vibe, but also a historical downtown vibe. In addition, I made note that parking was pretty plentiful for a downtown Chicago wedding venue. There was a handy parking lot right across on the same street!
It Has Indoor and Outdoor Wedding Capabilities
Sometimes Mother Nature can get the best of a wedding day. But, planning for rainy weather will be extremely easy having your wedding at The Penthouse at Hyde Park. If the day demands less-than-desirable weather, hosting the ceremony indoors can still provide a magical view. The ballroom features floor-to-ceiling windows on almost all sides. Alternatively, you can utilize the venue’s modern and blank canvas to create the most glorious ceremony altar display.
Featuring a Rooftop Terrace with Chicago’s Skyline
The Penthouse at Hyde Park provides your wedding day with the most incredible views of the Chicago skyline. That is why the rooftop terrace in and of itself deserves to be one of the main reasons to consider this venue. This view is a rare opportunity for your wedding day and one only The Penthouse can provide. In addition, with what surrounds the building, it feels like you are in a secluded area overlooking the city’s majestic buildings. Yes, you can have your Carrie Bradshaw moment. And you should.
It has a Modern Aesthetic Fit for any Color Scheme
The black, white, and gold color scheme of The Penthouse at Hyde Park provides your wedding day with a modern, regal, yet historic blank canvas for your wedding day. Therefore, you can coordinate any color scheme within the space, from neutrals to bold and bright colors, to soft pastels. Honestly, I believe any color scheme would be a winner.
The Beautiful Lighting Throughout the Venue
The venue’s big, bright, white walls will bounce around the natural light streaming in from the massive windows throughout the room. As I shot there, I couldn’t find a “bad” spot to take a photo. The room was filled with such soft, even magical lighting. There was even a hint of the sunset through the west side windows.
Worthy Accommodation Options are Nearby
The Penthouse at Hyde Park is just a few blocks from the amazing Sophy Hyde Park, a fabulous boutique hotel. This is where I stay when I am photographing at The Penthouse. It would be an incredible option for your first night as a married couple and a fantastic rehearsal dinner venue! The blue tooth record player inside the suite and the thoughtful decor and amenities have me sold. These two locations have a similar feel, so pairing your wedding at The Penthouse with Sophy is a heavenly match.
If you are considering The Penthouse at Hyde Park wedding venue in Chicago, I hope this post was an insightful look inside what it offers.
