The Great Narrowing Down
We have narrowed our venues down to two, barring any unforeseen fantasticalness.
I’ve been in love with this venue since I first saw it, it’s so unique and colorful. Every time I envision the wedding, it’s here, in this space. It’s going to cap-out our budget, and we’ll have to get a little creative with everything else…but it might be worth it…before this venue I was all: “It doesn’t really matter where we get married…just somewhere kind of pretty…” but Carnivale is very “us” and they serve Latin fusion food, which we love. The window you get married in front of has this great view of Chicago over a highway, so the car lights would be a fantastic addition to that Chi-town vibe that is us.
I know it’s hard to tell from these tiny photos, and I have never seen Opera in person, but they have a lot of the same decor as Carnivale and will offer a complete shut-down for our wedding, which makes us feel like rockstars…The colors in this venue are actually a little bit more like us, sharing that industrial feel with bright colors and all…it’s also less expensive.
Ironically, they both have the same chairs and I won’t be able to decide before I check them both out once more. I know those tiny photos are not great for comparison, but you get the vibe. What do you think?
