Chicago Social Event Recap


WeddingPro closed out a great year of socials with a varsity-inspired night in Chicago, brought to life by the fabulous team at Big City Bride. Big City Bride just celebrated 20 years of Chicago wedding planning experience and for this event, they demonstrated their proven expertise in event design and planning, from concept to onsite production.  

Our venue was the historic Wildman Boiler & Tank building. At over 12,000 square feet, Wildman BT has been revitalized as a blank slate space with many thoughtful functional additions that make it an ideal wedding venue. The industrial space created the ideal backdrop for gorgeous installations by EV Design Collective and lighting by EV Design Collective and Remarkable Events, not to mention the beautiful furniture and linens from Halls Rental and BBJ La Tavola.

Our security team Silver Star Protection Group and V12 Valet took excellent care of everyone throughout the night.

Pros connected over cocktails, passed hors d’oeuvres and incredible food offerings by Blue Plate Catering like paninis & soup, sliders & fries and the fan favorite—pasta alfredo prepared live in a cheese wheel.

BeatMix Music kept us jamming all evening with their string versions of pop classics and we ended the night with delicious ice cream treats by Dipsy Desserts.

Don’t worry if you weren’t able to join us this time! The event was expertly captured by Lisa Blume Photography and Fox + Ivory—see below for a great recap of the night. 

Thanks to our amazing creative partners and to everyone who joined us for this wonderful evening. Stay tuned for more exciting events to come in 2024!
