Renaissance Chicago North Shore Hotel

Northbrook, IL 60062
The Renaissance North Shore Hotel is a luxury hotel on the North Shore of Chicago and host to Mike and Jestene’s swanky Northbrook wedding reception. At nearly 200 guests, Mike and Jestene needed a moderately large space and the areas reserved for the cocktail hour and reception were very comfortable and spacious.
The ballroom was filled with not one, but eight gorgeous crystal chandeliers, perfectly illuminating the happy celebration. The cream walls and ceiling didn’t compete with the purple up-lighting and provided a ‘soft box’ feel that was great for photography. The center of the ballroom featured a large parquet dance floor that practically begged guests to come out and take a spin.
We also have to give kudos to the Reniassance North Shore staff, who were attentive and unobtrusive and provided the perfect enhancement for this event. They even matched the bronze chargers on the tables to the chivari chairs and table draping, giving the reception a nice cohesive feel. We had a great time at this venue and we hope to bring Joshua Albanese Photography back again soon!
