Calling all engaged couples! The Magnificent Mile Association, in partnership with The Wrigley Building’s Centennial Celebration and supported by key media sponsor, Modern Luxury Weddings Chicago, is offering up to 50 couples a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for elopement-style weddings or civil union celebrations at one of Michigan Avenue’s most iconic locations on Sunday, September 26 during Marriages on The Mile – Weddings at Wrigley.

This romantic and free wedding ceremony is timed perfectly, as the COVID-19 Delta Variant is on the rise and many couples may be considering alternatives to formal indoor weddings in the coming months.

Ceremonies will take place between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. outdoors underneath the iconic Wrigley Building Bridge (410 N. Michigan Ave.). Weddings will be conducted by judges of the Circuit Court of Cook County.

“We are so proud to celebrate The Wrigley Building turning 100-years-old this year,” comments Bradley Borowiec, Vice President of The Wrigley Building. “We’ve seen hundreds of couples get engaged under the shades of terra cotta, and now, couples can help us celebrate 100 years by putting their special mark on this day. Marriages on The Mile – Weddings at Wrigley is an incredible opportunity to come together at an iconic Chicago location for a day of festive activity around the unions, while also welcoming participants for the wider Meet Me on The Mile festivities.”
