This is where the party's at! (And possibly some Bacardi, too.)
The Murphy Auditorium is a gorgeous French Renaissance-style building that was built in the 1920s. It's located in the heart of the Gold Coast neighborhood of Chicago, a mere 4 blocks from the chapel. What we really loved about the space was that it has plenty of space for all of our guests while still feeling intimate. Plus, it has theatre seats in the balcony, which is a cute nod to how Adam and I met. It checked every box on our list, and even has the unexpected bonus of outdoor space (weather permitting) for the cocktail hour! Even though it was the first venue Adam and I saw in person, we fell in love and decided that The Murphy Auditorium was the perfect place for our wedding reception. We signed the contract and put down our deposit today, exactly 13 months before our wedding!
