Salvage One is one of those venues you hear about for years before having an opportunity to perform there. Salvage One is the type of venue that books out way in advance, and with good reason. Salvage One just met Felix and Fingers Dueling Pianos.
Salvage One Chicago
Chicago is absolutely one of the best cities to throw a wedding reception. The options are practically endless, and there is no shortage of great venues, food, flowers, entertainment, etc. Salvage One is a Chicago wedding venue with a reputation for being unique.
I’d describe Salvage One as: Antique Store meets Art Museum meets Factory. The industrial building that houses the unique items the venue has on display creates a truly unique atmosphere in the wedding industry. For starters, all the furnishings are for sale! This isn’t a banquet hall that perfectly decorates and matches every table to the wedding colors and theme…the venue is in and of itself a theme! Every item different and unique with no shortage of conversation starters at every turn.
For weddings, Salvage One is a blast. This particular wedding had about twice as many guests as there were seats, which might seem like a problem until you realize it makes no difference when everyone is dancing all night! They have a great stage set up at the end of the dance floor, a stage that hosted our two full piano shells, a drummer and saxophonist.
One of my other highlights of Salvage One was the fact that there were games! Whether this was provided by the Bride/Groom or the venue, I’m not entirely sure, but it’s fun to watch people partake in Giant Jenga and Foosball while enjoying their time at the wedding. Seriously, if you like cool things, get married at Salvage One!
Chicago Wedding Celebration!
To say this crowd danced would be a gross understatement. Our bride and groom were clearly phenomenal people from the moment we met and they had family and friends who just knew how to have fun. They had opted for food stations to compliment the social theme of the wedding, each station better then the last. There was a gorgeous cake that was decorated to show the skylines of the three cities where they had lived. And once again, Giant Jenga.
The timeline began with cocktails downstairs, which allowed guests to see the main retail area of Salvage One. This was one of the most interesting rooms I’ve visited for a while. One of my favorite pieces was a tree comprised of wooden organ pipes. I might be biased.
After the cocktail hour, guest moved upstairs to the main banquet hall where we began with introductions and speeches. Following dinner the party was on and the band was rocking an all request show!
Did I Say Salvage One?
If you’re getting married in Chicago, check out this venue! It’s great for that one-of-a-kind bride who wants to get away from the sterile banquet hall feel.
