A Love Supreme
In the largest wedding celebration in the history of the hotel and the building that houses it dating back to 1893, the Chicago Athletic Association hotel (12 S. Michigan Ave.) is proud to announce A Love Supreme, an inclusive, joyous celebration of marriage and unity, taking place in Stagg Court on Sunday, April 9. With a portion of the proceeds benefiting Howard Brown Health, A Love Supreme seeks to unify the many circles of the city’s community, forging connections and strengthening ties with one another with the underlying message that in Chicago, love always wins! By celebrating love together in a shared space, A Love Supreme invites all versions of love to be married collectively, en mass to honor the advances made as a community and nation.
A nuptial affair put on in collaboration with local Chicago partners Slo ‘Mo, Marquette Avenue Events, Artistic Blooms, Rose Photo and LEAP Weddings, A Love Supreme invites LGBTQ couples to exchange their vows in a nontraditional, shared ceremony with the love of 15 partner couples for a reduced and all-inclusive wedding rate of $4,680 per couple.

Special thanks to our National Partners OkCupid for helping us in the search for our 15 beautiful couples.
