It’s almost impossible to believe that a sunny Saturday in March could get any better this, but I am here to tell you, lovelies… it most certainly can. That’s because we have a brand new advertiser to introduce you to this morning and it just so happens to be one we love BIG TIME. SMPers, meet Odyssey Cruises, a Chicago venue like no other that will turn your wedding day into the greatest day you ever had with top-notch service, a trip down the lovely Lake Michigan and the beyond breathtaking city skyline as your Big Day backdrop. And did I mention that the Odyssey II is currently undergoing a massive renovation, which means those weddings we oh-so-adore are going to get EVEN BETTER?!? It’s what we call swoon-tastic and you MUST take some time to get to know them. They are fabulous.
From Odyssey Cruises… In May 1991, the 600-passenger Odyssey I was christened at Navy Pier, and Michael Higgins became an industry leader in a new company called Premier Yachts, Inc. After just one season, it was clear that the company was destined for growth. By 1993, the original Odyssey I was relocated to Boston Harbor, and a new, larger Odyssey II took over the Chicago berth. Odyssey II is an award-winning vessel selected as Best of Boats/Cruises/Charters by Illinois Meetings + Events, Best of the Knot Wedding venues in 2012 and 2013, a Top Rated Restaurant in 2012 from Restaurant.com, as well as a Yelp favorite.
A wedding on the water is unlike any land-based event. Customization options are endless for our brides. They can customize everything from the flowers and decor to the music and menu. Brides have an array of enhancement options to build their dream wedding. Each and every bride is assisted by a wedding coordinator, who works with them every step of the way. And what better way to say “I do” than floating along Lake Michigan with the breathtaking Chicago skyline as your backdrop?
Most recently, the Odyssey II is undergoing a $2 million renovation. She will return in the Spring with a completely new look. The new Odyssey will feature modern rooftop lounge furniture, a celebrity chef-inspired menu with locally sourced ingredients, flat-screen plasma TVs, a refreshed wine list and new creative cocktails, LED lighting and a brand new lit dance floor. The Odyssey II also features freshly prepared cuisine by our on-board Executive Chef. The food is locally sourced and exceptionally tasteful. But what makes us a really unique venue is being able to create an unforgettable memory on the water.
We are so proud of the feedback we receive from our Brides! Read their reviews here.
