Salvage One




No two weddings at Salvage One are the same because they are able to reinvent the space for each and every event. This unique Chicago venue has two floors and, in the warmer months, you can take advantage of a beautiful courtyard. What makes this one of a kind venue so special is that it is a retail store that has a constantly changing inventory. Your wedding will be staged custom to your needs utilizing the inventory of the collection from some of the most amazing buildings in Chicago. This space is perfect for the chic urban couple that wants an elegant, yet industrial building for their wedding space. The exposed brick walls with rough wood beams are contrasted with the opulence of salvaged stained glass windows, architectural detailing from classic buildings, crystal chandeliers and antique furniture, creating an inviting ambiance for your special day. The outdoor courtyard is a lovely place to exchange vows and the wrought iron railing next to the brick of the adjacent buildings makes for a chic backdrop for your photos. The sleek vintage bar is a great spot for guests to mingle during cocktail hour while the newlyweds take whimsical photos among the antiques. Enjoy a cozy seated dinner amongst the eclectic inventory and then dance the night away on the hardwood dance floor.
