{Shannon’s Venue}: ROOF on theWit Hotel

Last week I got a very exciting email from Shannon, telling me that she chose her venue!  Which meant I finally got to write a blog post all about it! Enjoy these pretty pics!

venue2 Located on the 27th floor of theWit Hotel, ROOF is known for its gorgeous design, stunning views of Chicago, and delicious cocktails and cuisine.  What more could you want for your wedding?  Well, Shannon and Steve have the entire roof reserved for their December 2014 nuptials.  The real appeal is that it’s all glass with some ridiculous city views.  Here are some pictures from their website! Prepare to swoon!

This is where the late night ceremony will happen!


The Patio

Guests will be dancing the night away on this stunning patio with a preexisting DJ booth, which is the icing on the cake for the night’s chic/trendy nighttime feel!
