Prairie Productions, Cocktail Fun or a Sit Down Dinner... It All Works!
There is a familiar place to the wedding & event folks in the heart of the West Loop, down the street from Harpo Studios, called Prairie Productions. During the week you will find all sorts of photo shoots happening and on the evenings and weekends, the space is rented for weddings and events. The space is essentially all white, with grey floors, and in the main room, huge windows that let all sorts of light in! This space is definitely for someone who wants a contemporary backdrop for their wedding.
The team at Liven It Up Events has already had a few events there this year! Thought we would show you some of the work that we have done there if you are looking for a modern, fun, or playful space for a wedding or event.
Early in the year, we worked with a great couple who chose Prairie so they could do fun food stations, seating for almost all of the guests, and make their guests feel like it was more of a party than a wedding. Bonsoiree dished out an amazing spread, Jeremy Lawson photographed the day, and Spencer with Style Matters kept everyone moving throughout the night. This was also the first time we used the new Farm Tables from Tablescapes. They looked beautiful at Prairie!
Back in April, we were back for another wedding where we had both the ceremony and the reception at Prairie. Rev. Marian Hale performed a beautiful service in front of a stunning wall of fabric and hanging crystals by Art of Imagination.
Later that evening, D'Absolute Catering served up a buffet style dinner of some delicious Americana Foods, Style Matters playing some fun music all the while Brian Resac was photographing the day!
And then, in May, we were a part of a more traditional style wedding, where the couple was married in a church and we designed Prairie to be more of a traditional venue, were there was a sit-down dinner.
Gerard & Marshelle with Occasions Catering dished up a delightful two course meal, while Logi Productions & Dawn Roscoe captured the day. Our buddy, Juliet with Cattelya Designs did a beautiful job with the floral arrangements, and The Dave Rothstein Orchestra kept the guests on the dance floor all evening!
Whether you want to use Prairie for more of a cocktail style reception or a full sit down dinner, it is a wonderful space for any event!
