Chicago’s Hidden Engagement Gems

In life, some memories are made to last forever. At Burdeen’s, of course, we’re in the business of making great memories with our jewelry, but we leaned on our friends over at NBC 5 to research a few of Chicago’s Best Engagement spots – both for the perfect engagement photo and for a memory that will last a lifetime.

With the perfect couple, in the perfect setting, and of course the perfect ring, Chicago can provide bedrock for marriages that last forever.

Chicago Riverwalk Engagement

Chicago Riverwalk

It’s much more intimate than your average than your average Chicago setting. Couples love the River Walk because you can catch the sail boats, ice cream parlors, and take in Chicago’s stunning city lights. These views make it the perfect setting for engagement photos in Chicago.


Navy Pier Engagement

Navy Pier

As one of Chicago’s most iconic destinations, Navy Pier stands as the heart of Chicago. So why not let stand as the heart of your engagement photo? This destination, with its bright lights, massive ferris wheel, boat rides all around Lake Michigan, Navy Pier is a great backdrop for your dream engagement photo.

Skydeck Chicago

Wills Tower *cough* Sears Tower Skydeck

Yes, like most Chicagoans, we still call it the Sears Tower… But for the thrill seeking and adventurous couples in Chicagoland, the Sky Deck is the perfect destination. Go up to the 103rd floor of the Willis Tower and you can get the perfect shot with the entire Chicago skyline as your backdrop for the perfect wedding photo.

Wrigley Field

Wrigley Field

Wrigley brings Chicago together – well, the North Side of Chicago. As one of Chicago’s favorite sports teams, the Cubs have brought so many couples together, both through the decades of misery, and of course, more recently, for the 2016 World Series run. Because it serves as the Mecca for Cubs fans, it’s an ideal place to pop the question.


Art Institute Gardens

Isn’t there an old saying that nature is the best medicine? Who knows where we were going with that, but nevertheless, this stunning greenery is the perfect backdrop any engagement. It stands in stark contrast with Chicago’s skyscrapers and provides such a peaceful setting for your engagement.

Blackhawks Game

United Center

Maybe you guys aren’t baseball people – maybe you prefer the cold – or maybe you’re just a diehard Blackhawks fan – you don’t have to answer to us, but there are plenty of Chicagoans who are popping the question at Blackhawks games.
