Last Thursday, Avery House joined Room 1520 in hosting a launch party for their brand new event space, Aérée Loft. The other fabulous hosts and sponsors such as A Perfect Event, Finesse Cuisine and Art of Imagination, also pitched in to create “THE” party of the season. Hundreds of guests came to celebrate and share in the excitement of Chicago’s newest venue. Owners and friends, Steve and Leah, had an incredible vision a couple of years ago to turn the lower half of their commercial photography studio into a refreshingly modern and strikingly beautiful event space in the West Loop, perfect for hosting charity benefits, wedding receptions, fashion shows and more. We knew from the beginning that when their vision came to life it would turn heads all across the city. And we were right! If you missed it, NBC Chicago was so excited they made a great little feature about the party that you can check out here.
Throughout the evening guests mingled and enjoyed some delicious hors d’oeuvres and yummy treats from the amazing candy bar and chocolate bar. Of the two cocktails that were being served, my favorite was the Lemon Meringue Pie in the Sky Martini! An aerialist hung from the ceiling in the entry way and created an amazing silhouette and true show stopper from the outside looking in. The Smilebooth kept everyone entertained with trampolines and green apples for juggling. Fortunately we had no broken ankles although I came close one or two times. Jumping in heels is not the best idea. Check out all the Smilebooth photos here!
Anyways, thank you to all who came out and celebrated with us and a huge thank you to Haley of Room 1520 for being so wonderful to work with!
