City Winery Chicago located in Chicago's West Loop at 1200 W. Randolph Street is a very hip and relaxed venue for your Chicago wedding, corporate event, or non-profit fundraiser. The team at City Winery is a pleasure to work and will make sure to take great care of you and your guests. City Winery is a full service venue with a hands on planning component which makes things easy for everyone. The lighting is just right, the floor plan makes sense, and most importantly there is WINE! The most popular (and largest) event space is called "The Concert Venue" which seats up to 240 guests (or 350 standing). The stage is central to the room and is perfect for your live band or DJ. The venue also has projectors/screens on each side of the stage if you have a presentation or want your Fotio pictures displayed externally during the event (this is tons of fun to watch the photos when dancing etc!). Make sure to check out the City Winery Chicago Private Events Page.
We brought Fotio to Architectural Artifacts in Ravenswood for Sara and JP's wedding last week. It was a very classy and fun affair. They hung swooping lights across the main dance floor which gave the indoor space a kind of outside ambient feel. And they had some seriously tasty goodies from J&L Catering such as grilled peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and fresh old-fashioned doughnuts! Our wooden box camera free standing photo booth design fit in perfectly with the old-timey feel and reclaimed historic pieces that cover the walls of the space. We used a large vintage/reclaimed stained glass window as a photography backdrop which looked really cool and set the mood for the nights photos. This vintage Chicago wedding/event venue would be perfect for any kind of vintage themed wedding or even a Great Gatsby party!
Check out how cool Fotio looked in the Roosevelt University Auditorium Ballroom! This event space recently opened up to the public and is perfect for a corporate event, Chicago Wedding or your next Great Gatsby party! It used to be reserved for Roosevelt University events only. It's extremely charming with ornate wooden columns, delicate wood paneling, oil painted ceiling murals, and a beautiful view of Lake Michigan! The tables and chairs are as vintage as it gets and the combination of natural and ambient lighting is simply spectacular. Fotio's wooden photo booth look and freestanding design worked perfectly in the space!
Thanks to Jim Boardman, Nancy DeBiasi, and Gretchen McGinn from Venue Logic who invited us to attend the open house. Also thanks to Roxana from Food2You Catering for the excellent spread of cookies and wine! Everyone thought Fotio fit in really well with the space. We opted to use the fine wood paneling as a background which looked great. Check out some of the photos below!
