Undoubtedly the most popular space for a ceremony, the Nancy A. Petrovich Skyline Terrace is an elegant outdoor patio with an unrivaled backdrop. The waterfront area is a scenic spot, available for a ceremony, cocktail hour, and receptions.
Also available for ceremonies and receptions, the Daniel F. and Ada L. Rice Solarium feature floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Lake Michigan. The striking architecture within this space makes it a fan favorite, especially as night approaches!
The exterior of the venue itself is a hit, as it offers a contemporary backdrop for wedding portraits and photos. Couples should take full advantage of not only the skyline in the distance but the grand architecture on display. If you prefer equally striking spaces for your ceremony or reception, be sure to inquire about the Grainger Sky Theatre, with its 36-foot domed ceiling. Or the Clark Family Welcome Gallery, with futuristic architecture and colorful lighting.
