October, 2009 in Wheaton

"Our wedding was absolutely wonderful. The day was a tremendously satisfying culmination of all those months of planning, and a beautiful beginning to our new life together. My love of autumn shone through in all of the details, and we hope our love for the Lord, one another, and our family and friends was observed and felt by all."


Ceremony: First Baptist Church
Reception: Glendale Lakes Golf Club





Ken Rothacker

Rolling Meadows, IL, USA

"We discovered Ken when we heard him play in a service at our church. He was very easy to work with and is an excellent guitarist. However, I would recommend you use someone else as a vocalist."


Village Flower and Garden

5514 Route 53
Lisle, IL, United States

"I couldn't have been happier with the arrangements, bouquets, and bouts created by Ken at VF&G. Every time I look at my wedding photos I'm impressed again with how beautiful they were."

Invitations Vendor:


817 Beltline Road
Decatur, AL, United States

"I used the Staples store in Glen Ellyn to print and cut the invitations I'd designed myself. They were friendly, easy to work with, and had a super-fast turnaround."

Invitations Vendor:

Megan France

611 Polo Drive
Wheaton, IL 60187, United States

"When it comes to handwriting, Megan is an artist. She did a beautiful job addressing my wedding invitations, and I received lots of positive comments from guests."

Invitations Vendor:

Paper Source

Murphy, CA, USA

"I purchased the paper for my invitations (which I designed and had printed myself) from Paper Source, both in-store (at the Oak Park location) and online. Bargain shopper that I am, I designed my invites using paper that was on clearance for 50% off...only hitch was that clearance merch is non-returnable, and sometimes hard to find what you need, so there's some risk involved with that approach. But if you can make it work, you get beautiful paper for a great price! Plus, they offer a volume discount (even on clearance merch) when you order 10 pkgs or more of the same item."

"We were 100% satisfied with Kaiti. Thanks to her, we have stunning photos from both our engagement session and wedding day. Kaiti has a terrific eye for detail, color, and composition. She specializes in the photojournalistic/ story-telling type of wedding photography. She's great at really listening to the client and working with them to capture the shots they most desire. I would (and do!) recommend her friends and family."

Egg Harbor Cafe

208 S Hale St
Wheaton, IL, United States

"The rehearsal dinner will be held here on Friday at 7:00. This is one of our favorite places for breakfast. Lunch is delicious, too! Egg Harbor has a diverse menu that offers many interesting and unique dishes, far beyond what you find at your average pancake house. Friendly service, delicious coffee, and country charm."


Front Street Cocina

112 N Hale St
Wheaton, IL 60187

"This is a fresh, tasty Tex Mex restaurant in the heart of downtown Wheaton. Given that their office is right upstairs, Suzanne and her boss are lunch regulars here. Beware: the chips and fresh salsa are addicting!"


Gino's East Pizza

315 W Front St
Wheaton, IL, United States

"What's a visit to the Windy City without some Chicago-style deep dish pizza?! To get your fix, visit Gino's East in downtown Wheaton."


Pita Paradise

161 S Schmale Rd
Carol Stream, IL, United States

"Another strip mall gem, this little family owned restaurant offers delicious Mediterranean cuisine. Don't go for the ambiance (there isn't much), but do go for the friendly service and great food. Suzanne personally recommends the chicken shawerma sandwich. The hummus is also quite tasty!"


Portillo's Hot Dogs

235 North Ave
Glendale Heights, IL, United States

"A Chicagoland tradition! Portillo's started in 1963 with Dick Portillo selling hot dogs out of a small trailer. They've expanded a lot since then, to include over 40 restaurants throughout the Chicagoland area. Still known for hot dogs, Portillo's also offers great burgers, salads, and pastas. (The chopped salad is Travis' favorite.) You'll want to save room for dessert, too! The chocolate eclair cake and "cake shake" are indulgent treats."


Sushi Bar & Japanese Restaurant

369 W Army Trail Rd # 19
Bloomingdale, IL, United States

"One of the best and most economical places for sushi in the western suburbs. Don't be put off by the location (an unassuming strip mall)--the quality and selection is superb!"


Harvest Bible Chapel

800 Rohlwing Rd
Rolling Meadows, IL, United States

"Looking for somewhere to attend Sunday morning? Harvest is our church home, and we invite you to visit and worship with our church family. Services are at 9:00 (for you early risers) and 11:15 (for those of you who stayed until the very end of the reception and would like to sleep in)."


Morton Arboretum

4100 Illinois Rte 53
Lisle, IL, United States

"The Arboretum is one of our favorite places to go hiking (and in the winter, snowshoeing). A natural sanctuary in the midst of the western suburbs, the Morton Arboretum has miles of roads and trails that run through woods and meadows alike, over gentle hills and around tranquil lakes. For kids (and playful adults) there's also a great Children's Garden and shrub maze. Featuring over 4,000 kinds of trees, shrubs, and plants, there's always something in season. The first weekend in October usually kicks off the Arboretum's Fall Color Festival, which features extra events. Visit the website for more info. Open from 7 a.m. til sunset."

The result of a unique partnership between the City of Chicago and the philanthropic community, the 24.5-acre Park features the work of world-renowned architects, planners, artists and designers.
