There are a number of locations ADJACENT to the lake. Check here for a list of some excellent choices.
One of my hidden favorites is:
Berger Park 6205 N Sheridan Rd, Chicago, IL 60660 It’s the Chicago Park District but what a quaint, historic location. A mansion originally named the Downey Mansion, one of the few remaining mansions that once lined Chicago’s Lakefront. Hardwood floors, original woodwork and antique light fixtures among other charming details. It boasts an outdoor space with breathtaking lake views. Just minutes from downtown, the space offers three rooms that can be rented individually for intimate gatherings or together for functions that can accommodate up to 100 guests.
And if you prefer not to get sand between your toes, but still want to be near the water: Odyssey
Located at Navy Pier, this chic & modern approach to celebrating your wedding will be extremely unique & memorable. It’s one of the best in Chicago.
You’ll receive attentive service, dine on exquisite cuisine. Enjoy stunning views of the city. have your ceremony on the Rooftop Lounge. And dance till the ship returns to dock.
Also not a beach but near the water and with great views: Planetarium
One of the most amazing weddings I’ve ever been to took place at sunrise at the peninsula point of the Planetarium. You will feel like you are in another world. As you might as well be on cloud nine here where the museum campus meets the inland sea of Lake Michigan. Amazing!
