The Murphy Hosts Gorgeous Summer Weddings in Chicago!

Summer is here, which means wedding season is in full swing! As one of Chicago’s top wedding venues, The Murphy is the chosen setting for countless weddings every summer, and over the past few months we’ve been honored to host some truly spectacular “I Dos.”

A historical event venue located in downtown Chicago, The Murphy Auditorium features stunning French style architecture, gorgeous Tiffany doors, and an adaptable space that can be transformed to bring the happy couple’s vision to life. From extravagant celebrations with hundreds to a more intimate ceremonies, the staff at The Murphy works closely with Chicago’s top wedding vendors to create romantic moments that seem to come straight out of a fairytale.

Love is in the air at The Murphy this summer, and what better way to celebrate wedding season than to take a look at some of the memorable wedding receptions we’ve hosted recently.

May 2016

Jessica and Brody

This gorgeous wedding reception transformed The Murphy into a romantic and soft space, with hues of pink and gold showcasing the simple yet striking elegance of the venue. The evening was beautifully captured by Christy Tyler Photography, and the photos below demonstrate the undeniable love Brody and Jessica share. The reception featured delicious food from Paramount Events Chicago, wedding decor and floral design by Kehoe Designs, and live entertainment from David Rothstein Music. The gorgeous wedding cake was created by Elysia Roots Cakes.

Stephen and Mary

This wedding reception had a simple and classic feel, with a more understated design, neutral color palette, and elegant gold accents. The photographer was the award-winning  Zulufoto, who captured a stunning photo of the couple in front of The Murphy’s Tiffany doors, which provided a gorgeous backdrop.

Annelise and Patrick (#newlynielsen)

Held on a gorgeous summer evening in the middle of June, Annelise and Patrick’s wedding reception began with a cocktail hour, allowing guests to mingle outside and take in The Murphy’s stunning exterior architecture.


Loie and Dom (#med2wed)

Initially, Loie and Dom envisioned themselves getting married in a garden, but they chose to go with a traditional cathedral instead. So, with the help of Christine Janda Design and Events, they transformed The Murphy into their version of a garden for the reception. They chose The Murphy Auditorium as their reception venue because of Dom’s love of architecture, and we were truly honored to host this elegant garden party. Catering was provided by Food For Thought, and the stunning photos featured below were taken by photographer Brittany Bekas.

Nate and Taylor (#nateandtaylor)

We loved working with two of our favorite vendors on this gorgeous wedding reception. Jewell Events Catering provided a delicious menu, complete with wedding cupcakes and a ‘sweets bar’, while Kloekner Preferred Flowers provided all of the floral decor, including the unique floral arrangements that served as centerpieces on each of the tables. It truly was an evening to remember!
