Learn more about our ads. Catalyst Ranch is also featured in our Offbeat Vendors guide! Our sponsor, Catalyst Ranch, describes themselves as "Chicago's most intriguing venue" and, after you see these photos, you'll understand why and most certainly end your unique Chicago wedding venue search. (Especially when you scroll to the end and see their special Offbeat Bride discount!) Take my hand, and let's virtually stroll through the many colorful rooms and weddings past of Catalyst Ranch… Located in a historic downtown Chicago loft building in the West Loop, Catalyst Ranch is a, combined, 15,000 square foot space full of color, funky art, and cool toys (Yeah I said toys!). Not to mention the killer decor… The eclectic backdrops mean that spending hours and hours DIYing or buying decor is TOTALLY optional. Yessss. Catalyst Ranch's all-inclusive rates include their bright and unforgettable decor — vintage tables, chairs, art, and bright rugs. Each room is artfully curated, and each floor plan is designed and catered to many different personalities and styles. Comer Pfingstler – WeddingChicago, IL Photo by Jasmin Shah If you're like, "OMG, 15k square feet, and so many rooms!? What if I'm not the only wedding?" Don't fret, my pet. Catalyst Ranch only books one event per floor, so that no matter what and where, your wedding will feel intimate and personal. But quite possibly the bestest benefit of using Catalyst Ranch as your wedding venue, is that, if you need help on the day of your event, they include exceptional on-site staffing! So, as they put it, "you can focus on having the best day EVERRR!" But don't just take it from me (or them) — let's hear from an actual person who actually got married at Catalyst Ranch this year… We cannot praise the Catalyst Ranch too highly! From the eclectic, colorful decor, to the enthusiastic, accommodating staff, this is the place to host your event. We had our wedding reception here with many moving parts, and they handled it with grace and style. All of our guests raved about the venue; we are so glad we chose this fantastic space! – Paul F Photo by Mona Luan Time for your special discount treat… Offbeat Bride Discount: Just for our readers, Catalyst Ranch is offering a 10% venue rental discount! Just mention you found their amazing venue through Offbeat Bride when you contact them. Bright. Colorful. Retro. Eclectic. Stylish. Unforgettable.
