The Goth Wedding a Murderous Union!


On November 19th, For the Love explores the dark side of chocolate with The Goth Wedding: A Murderous Union. A Cocktail Party, a Play, a Costume Ball and a Fundraiser for two worthy causes.

Join our lonely Vampire Owen, his beloved Olivia, and their supernatural friends for a silent auction, cocktails and tasty treats, then watch as they navigate their way through a comedy of terrors that could end in a happily...forever...after. Follow your guide through scenes of their unconventional love story and be an honored guest at their dishonorable wedding.

We'll celebrate our creepy couple deep into the night with The Gothic Costume Ball. Come dressed in eerie elegance and prepare to feed your soul's dark desires with dancing, drinks and little bites (of all kinds).

Where? Nowhere else but the Renaissance Blackstone Chicago, a glamorous hotel with a notorious past.

Your evening will begin at 7:30 PM with a Grand Reception of drinks, tasty nibbles and a Silent Auction benefiting Esperanza Community Services.

At 8:30 PM sharp The Play begins. You will come together to see the first scene and receive instructions for your theatrical journey in the Grand Ballroom. We have enlisted a "Good Witch" to guide your Coven through the twists and turns of our haunted hotel.

10:30 pm brings us to the Murderous Union and the Costume Ball. A Dance to eternity...

Dress in your finest Elegant Goth attire or be summoned to the haunted hallway for a new you!!
