FEATURED CHICAGO WEST SUBURBS WEDDING VENUE
Hotel Arista Naperville Weddings
Hotel Arista is a boutique hotel in Chicago’s west suburbs City Gate Naperville. This mid, high-rise building and glamorous hotel offers a Chicago style luxury setting for weddings and photography as well. Hotel Arista is a modern styled hotel with an eco, minimalist design and high-end spa appeal. Unique for the suburbs, this chic hotel offers a downtown Chicago look, with the building’s modern design and twelve story high rooftop views. A bride + groom and guests can experience the feeling of being in the heart of the city in this sophisticated, urban location in the suburbs.
We have photographed several weddings at Hotel Arista. Nicki + Matt’s wedding was most recent and first wedding which planned for all the days activities to occur onsite. We loved this idea! When discussing the day with Nicki and Matt, they fell in love with the simplicity of never needing to leave the hotel campus. With numerous spaces for photography both in and outside the hotel, we took advantage of the hotel’s amazing rooms and modern decor planning for wedding photography, portraits and editorial style wedding photos all at venue.
All of the rooms, from the event spaces to the hotel suites at Hotel Arista are beautiful. We love the natural light and large windows during the getting ready photos in the hotel’s bridal suites. The venue’s smaller event space Cypress ballroom has a rooftop view and 12th-floor terrace. Combining Cypress with the adjoining 12th-floor terrace provides an intimate event space which offers floor-to-ceiling windows and the terrace. The hotel’s rooftop 12th floor terrace provides for unique high-rise, panoramic views overlooking Naperville and the west suburbs of Chicago great for unique wedding photographs or a rooftop, outdoor ceremony option.
The grand ballroom is a 4,800-square-foot space draped in luxurious fabric creating a modern & chic romantic space for ceremonies and receptions. The glamorous fabric lined ballrooms feature modern elegant chandelier lighting and tray-style vaulted ceilings. Custom design your wedding day and the modern hotel to fit both modern and traditional styled wedding look.
For Nicki + Matt’s wedding at Hotel Arista, the bride had the ceremony aisle lined with golden chiavari chairs and added glowing candlelight filling the room. The reception celebration included decor like soft ivory blooms with purple and pink accent in the bouquets and flowers hand selected for a Napa style flower centerpiece arrangements and bouquets. Purple hues from the uplighting draped across the ballroom and the tables included ivory with just the right amount of sparkle of gold and metallics. The head table was designed with gold table cloths and the custom chandelier that hung over the altar was added into the reception near the bar adding extra glamour into the room. The bride said the entire day was pure magic.
