Floating World Gallery




Imagine your Chicago loft wedding in the award-winning Floating World Gallery, surrounded by masterpieces of classic and contemporary Japanese art. The gallery’s “blank canvas” space allows for your wedding vision to come to life the way you’ve always imagined. Your beautiful ceremony takes place in the long gallery space, allowing for a truly grand entrance. You’ll say your vows with all of your guests witnessing your nuptials in a truly unique space. Later, an elegant cocktail hour gets the party going in the Glass Brick Room, with rich wood floors, exposed brick walls and lots of space for mingling. Dinner and dancing take place back in the main gallery space, with warm lighting and stunning hanging art setting the stage for a luxurious reception. The elongated, historical space makes family-style seating a breeze, and allows plenty of room for your guests to peruse the amazing works of art. The Gallery’s quaint courtyard provides beautiful photo opportunities, and your guests will be impressed with the urban setting. Sleek, modern and elegant, Floating World Gallery makes your wedding an experience!
