Navy Pier, An Eventective User from Oak Park, IL

This place truly is wonderful. I can not think of a better venue. They helped every step of the way, with everything they could. It has a beautiful view of the lake and is in a good location. Even if you get married in the suburbs, Navy Pier is a wonderful place to have the reception and is easily located. It is also by plenty of hotels and if you plan this for the right time, there will be fireworks. I can not reccomend this place highly enough!


Beautiful Peir Wedding, An Eventective User from Brooksville, fl

Navy Pier is the perfect venue for any wedding. Our tented rooftop terrace lets you dine under the stars with a spectacular view of the Chicago lakefront and skyline. On a lovely summer Saturday, your guests will enjoy a wonderful dinner, possibly topped off with your own private view of Navy Pier's fireworks (subject to scheduling). For larger weddings, the Grand Ballroom is a one-of-a-kind location. An ornate 80-foot domed ceiling tops panoramic views of Lake Michigan. Navy Pier Catering offers a variety of all-inclusive wedding packages to suit your needs. They are also experienced in ethnic weddings, from Indian to Kosher and everything in between. The Chef will provide a private tasting to select your menu, and their professional on-site catering experts will assist you every step of the way in creating an unforgettable experience, from the first kiss to the last dance. Their website sums up how beautiful the area is for your perfect moment.


Chicago.., An Eventective User from New York, NY

This place is cool, especially if your into enjoying the water. The food was GREAT and the service was amazingly well organized and fast. I travel between states and this was my first meeting place in chicago and i'm beyond glad I chose this place. Well I didn't chose it my fellow piers did, but I thanked them for it and still continue to go here today.


The Crystal Garden at the Navy Pier, An Eventective User from Sacramento, California

My wife and i were recently married at the Crystal Garden in Chicago. It was my first time in the Midwest, but she has family out there, and it's where she's always wanted to have her wedding. The city was nice, although pretty cold, and we saw a lot the local attractions. The venue it's self was amazing, the lighting and the atmosphere really ties the whole place together, and we're both really big fans of the foliage. They also don't charge a rental fee, just a deposit and a drink/beverage minimum. If you're looking for a nice wedding venue, that won't break the bank, i would recommend The Crystal Garden at the Navy Pier.


Beatiful, An Eventective User from Chicago, Illinois

First of, id like to say that I've been at this pier many times, and it never seems to let me down. It is a very natural and neutral location, which allows you to take in the atmosphere at the pier. It was many shops, and food areas, allowing for a full day of fun instead of running around everywhere to get food or to shop. I fully recommend this place, for meeting up with friends or just a casual business meeting. Also, it is a Navy Pier adding to the historic and sensational area.
