Why We Like This Place

• Nighttime wedding cruises are unforgettable: There’s nothing like celebrating on the water against a backdrop of the Chicago skyline, as a gorgeous sunset transitions into a tapestry of glittering city lights.

• There’s a boat that’s just right for you: Six unique vessels accommodate parties from 2 to 200, and you can get married dockside or anywhere you like on Chicago’s waterways. Then dance the night away on a floating rooftop deck—the place to be during a grand finale of summer fireworks.

• They take care of all the details: From creating a personalized cocktail to serving a dinner matched to your tastes, First Lady’s catering partners will customize your reception.
