Have You Booked Your Hotel Yet?

We know it feels really early, but with the convention in town and the limited number of rooms we have in our block, we strongly encourage you to book your hotel as soon as possible.

We have a block of rooms reserved at the Holiday Inn, Mart Plaza (Riverview).

You may make your reservation by calling: (800) 972-2494

The block is listed under: Helmreich-Sperling Wedding

The rate is $169.00 per night before taxes and fees.

We have rooms reserved on Friday and Saturday night, both King rooms and Double rooms.
We have a limited number of rooms available, so please make your reservation early.
Please note, if our block fills up, the hotel will still honor the $169.00 per night rate as long as other rooms are available. If you have a problem booking the room, please let us know - we should be able to fix it for you.

Location, location, location!

I realized recently that we haven't posted the location of the wedding! While the ceremony's location is still TBD, the reception will be at Salvage One, 1840 W. Hubbard in Chicago. (The ceremony will be in the same neighborhood.) This is the only place that Gretchen and I walked in and liked everything about it. A lot. You can check it out at http://www.salvageone.com. The space is a constantly changing, wood-and-brick loft. They buy and sell different architectural elements, and also create amazing art pieces, furniture, and installations from them. We're very excited to be having our reception here, and I think you'll really like seeing what's there.
