In Chicago, we have two main airports that service nearly all airlines: O'Hare (ORD) and Midway (MDW). 

Both airports offer easy access into the city, within 30 - 60 min depending on time of day and direction of commuter traffic. 

Airport fun facts! Chicago’s largest airport is named for a World War II hero; and Chicago’s second largest for a World War II battle.


Chicago is a great, walkable city and a rental car is not at all necessary! In fact, we strongly discourage a rental car while staying in the city. Between readily available ride shares (Lyft, Uber, Taxi etc) and easy public transit (the "L"), you can get anywhere in the core downtown area within 10-20 minutes.

Local Tip: hail a taxi from the airport into town, it's faster, easier, and less expensive than ride shares.

There will be transportation provided from all the room block hotels to the ceremony, and from the ceremony to the reception. Please note that guests should plan to walk, Uber, or taxi back to their hotels independently.


Ride In Style

Use promo code APPYCOUPLE when requesting your ride. New customers get $15 off your first ride with Uber.


Here's a list of some our favorite and go-to restaurants in the city. Most of these are open for breakfast/ brunch, lunch, and dinner.
