“My husband and I fell in love with Greenhouse Loft when we first visited. From the beginning...our experience with Greenhouse Loft and the staff was outstanding. Everyone was so helpful, answering all of our questions in a timely manner and working seamlessly with our vendors. The space is incredibly beautiful. Our guests could not stop complimenting us on selecting such a unique and breathtaking spot that was very "us". We had our ceremony inside and then ventured into the garden for cocktails… Dinner was inside and was beautiful with the candle package…Steve's photobooth was a highlight of the reception… “

"We got married at GHL in August, and the venue was perfect for our wedding. the team was receptive to our needs (a Hindu ceremony, civil ceremony, and reception all in one day), and they were super responsive throughout the whole planning process. GHL and all of our vendors worked seamlessly together, and the day-of set up was exactly how we had envisioned… We loved this venue, and our ceremonies in and outdoors could not have been beat!"

We’re housed in a LEED Platinum-certified building that’s chock full of sustainable features. We work with caterers, stationers, florists and other vendors who are among Chicago’s most sustainable business owners— they’ll help you minimize your carbon footprint. If you’re really dedicated, our event planners can help you get green down to the tiniest detail!

Each one of the 2.5 million weddings this year in the United States will produce an average of 62 tons of carbon dioxide and 400-600 lbs of garbage* - What can you do to make this stat smaller?  Here are some ideas:**

 

Venue

  • Choose a naturally beautiful venue that won’t need extra “stuff” as decor
  • Verify that your venue has environmental friendly policies
  • Use your locations and season as inspiration for natural decor

Food + Drink

  • Create a menu of local, in-season organic foods and beverages
  • Be aware of the service materials, use reusable items wherever possible, be sure to compost disposables
  • Make sure your caterer and venue space coordinate with each other on compost and recycling policies

Photography

  • Does your photographer use rechargeable batteries, non-toxic inks, online proofs, led, and cfl bulbs

JEWELRY

  • Eco-conscious jewelers use recycled metals, and ethically sourced gemstones


 

 

Invitations

  • Choose papers with a high post consumer waste recycled content
  • Ask your stationer if they use plant, water-based, or organic inks

Flowers

  • Ask your florist to use local, seasonal and organic flowers
  • Repurpose your ceremony flowers for the reception and brunch, donate them the day after
  • Arrange to have organic materials composted

Wardrobe

  • A vintage dress and/or suite makes a timeless statement
  • Consider donating or selling your gown to a charity or resale shop
  • Use a green dry cleaner

Favors

  • Consider useful, local, organic, consumable, plantable, refillable, favors
  • Consider a donation in honor of your guests in lieu of favors
