CSW Designer Challenge: Vendor Spotlight: Chicago History Museum

Happy Thursday Friends!

If you missed last week's article on our behind the scenes of the Chicago Style Weddings Designer Challenge "For the Love of Roses" photo shoot, you can view it here.  Voting closes on June 30th so please do not forget to cast your vote. You can do so by clicking here.  Today, we are excited to be featuring one of our team members that collaborated with us on the challenge, the Chicago History Museum. We chose this location as it offered a beautiful, elegant back drop for our shoot. We loved the natural light and the overall ambience of the room. Check out out our interview with them below!

Tell me a little about Chicago History Museum (current info and history as well).

As the city’s oldest cultural institution, the Chicago History Museum is uniquely Chicago.  The museum creatively tells the story of the city’s vast & colorful past.  Overlooking scenic Lincoln Park and the Gold Coast skyline, the Chicago Room creates an ideal setting for any type of event with spectacular views and traditional Georgian-style elegance.

What should a potential client know about booking their wedding with you?

With both indoor & outdoor spaces, the museum has many options for making your wedding unique.

How did you like collaborating on this project? 

We loved being a part of this project – getting to hear Kristina’s idea and see her take it all the way to it’s beautiful conclusion was really incredible.

What was your biggest takeaway from the project?

It was great to work with such amazing designers and vendors and see them really strut their stuff. 

What would winning mean to you? What do you think makes us stand out from the completion?

I always like to say that CHM is a little hidden gem in the city.  The people who know us, understand our beautiful space and exhibits.  I would hope that winning would bring even more attention to the work that the museum does to share Chicago’s amazing stories.  I think we stand out from the competition by showcasing that over-the-top dynamic and cooperation that the City of Big Shoulders has always been known for.
