Awesome! posted 10/1/2013

We were recently married here and it was absolutely beautiful! The skyline is the perfect backdrop for a Chicago wedding. The food (you must use Food for Thought) was excellent and Anna was so great to work with! We can be a tough crowd with the food and they surpassed my expectations. We had cocktail hour outside for sunset, and then moved into the cafe for dinner and dancing. It was the perfect mix of outside/inside with us being able to use the terrace as well. We could not have asked for a more perfect place, AND my champagne flute was never less than half full! :) (I wish I could remember the gentleman's name that made that happen I would like to give a "shout out" to him.)

I just had my wedding at the Adler and it seriously could not have gone better. I worked with Anna Ditton, and not only is she a sweet person, but she is super organized. The night of I was running around just trying to make sure that I was in the right place and she worried about everything else for me. Everything happened on time, and it was so beautiful. If you're considering the Adler, DO IT. Its amazing. And the food is good too - you have to use their caterer but they can do whatever type of food you want and everything (that we chose anyway) was good. We had an indian food that the guests liked a lot (it was different).

AMAZING! posted 5/2/2013

I never could have imagined a better venue! It was a chilly April day, so our guests could see the city without actually going outside. Everyone enjoyed being able to wander through the exhibits and stepping onto the terrace to use the binoculars. The view was spectacular! We could not have been happier!

Beautiful but VERY expensive posted 1/16/2013

We chose the location because of what it meant to us. It was stunning. That said, the Planetarium requires you to use their catering company, which is very expensive. There is no additional lighting included for Galileo cafe' which means there is a large up charge to hire an event company to come in to do any lighting in the space. The biggest downside is that set-up of anything can only begin 2.5 hours before the event begins (earliest set up is 3:00pm during winter months) which makes it difficult to do anything ambitious unless you have a large army who can move quickly.

TIP: they will give a discount for a Friday evening wedding.

Absolutely Amazing! posted 8/20/2012

This was a perfect venue for a magical day. There were fireworks for the guests to watch over Navy Pier and the most gorgeous view of the city which makes pictures fabulous for everyone! The room is also enchanting!

Pretty but pricey posted 8/15/2011

This is a beautiful location- on the water with amazing views of the city skyline, however, the almost $10,000 rental fee is a bit outrageous. If I had another shot at it, I might think of choosing some place cheaper and using that money elsewhere. But, if you have the room in your budget, its pretty hard to beat that view.

Amazing venue posted 9/21/2010

This space was our only choice for our ceremony and reception. I would never chose another location. The views of Chicago are amazing! It is a memorable place for any event.

Review for Adler Planetarium posted 5/10/2010

The reception area of the Planetarium has THE BEST view of the Chicago skyline. Almost everyone was able to enjoy this view during dinner and dancing and there was a terrace for guests to go outside and enjoy the view as well as take wonderful photos. We took wonderful photos both inside and out.
