Germania Place

Chicago wedding receptions at Germania Place and wedding photography inside the Germania venue can provide for an elegant, vintage, heirloom, historic or old-chicago appeal.  The venue Germania Place designed in 1888 offers a stunning historic landmark wedding venue space in Chicago.  Built in America’s Gilded Age of the 19th Century and located in the heart of Chicago’s Gold Coast near Old Town, Germania Place endures as one of Chicago’s most famous and significant historical landmark buildings to hold weddings.  Weddings at Germania Place offer a piece of Chicago’s history to wedding guests when you choose to host your event in a building such as Germania that is listed on the National Registry of Historic Buildings in Chicago.

Germania Place has two palatial ballrooms ready to be filled with your day’s theme, whether historic, vintage, elegant or a Chicago-oriented room design and reception decor.  The main ballroom features soaring 50’ ceilings, inset gold domes, original crystal chandeliers, 20 foot arched windows, and an ornate Victorian architecture that offers a mini museum room design with old-world style.  This vintage styled Chicago wedding venue also features two built in bars, a separate sun-drenched solarium, a 110 year old antique William Knabe Grand Piano, and a private dressing suite with bathroom.

For Mark + Roseanna’s summer wedding day, the couple added simple classic florals featuring baby’s breath tall centerpieces, calla lilies and roses in shades of purple and blush pink complimenting the warm gold lighting and chandelier surrounding the room.  Flowers elegantly set along Chicago themed and modern decor touches throughout the venue let 100 year old fully restored ballroom’s gorgeous and vintage interior rooms at the venue shine.  See below for more information about Germania a historic wedding event space in Chicago.
