June, 2012 in Arlington Heights

"Our wedding was great! We had a very hot day, but everyone worked with it and it turned out perfectly! We have the best memories from all of our vendors, we were so lucky to have such great individuals make this wedding a reality and to allow us to not worry and just enjoy the experience."


Ceremony: St Simon's Church
Reception: Makray Memorial Golf Club




Cakes/Candies Vendor:

Lovin Oven Cakery

2207 N Route 83

"Our consultation for the cake was wonderful. The tasting had lots of options and combinations, the portfolio of cake designs was very thorough and the consultant was very easy to work with. Our cake turned out perfectly, it tasted wonderful and we couldn't be more excited to eat the top in a year!"


Cage and Aquarium

1803 West Byron Street
Chicago, IL, United States

"We loved working with Cage & Aquarium. We had Kevin Price as our dj, and he was wonderful. We planned our wedding from out of town and C&A were willing to meet with us over skype and have a great online process for contracts, payments and preferences. We met with Kevin shortly before the wedding and he was very accommodating and easy-going. We had few specifics and placed our total trust in Kevin to get and keep the party going and he completely came through. Everyone- even our friends who are musically pretentious- loved the music. We had cannot say enough good things about Kevin and the whole C&A team."


Abundant Fields

24838 North Old McHenry Road
Lake Zurich, IL, United States

"Darlene, who owns and runs Abundant Fields was wonderful to work with. She took all of my ideas, inspirations and photos and turned them into a reality. She was very moderately priced, and understood our interest in economy and worked to make everything look beautiful without spending an arm and a leg. Darlene communicated with us primarily through email which made planning from out of town very easy. We were all so happy with the end product. Everything was gorgeous and perfect."

Invitations Vendor:


8702 Keystone Crossing
Indianapolis, IN, United States

"We loved working with the individuals at the papyrus store at Keystone in Indianapolis. They were very helpful, patient, and all about customer service. They explained a lot about the vendors and the pricing scheme to help us find invitations that were affordable, but expensive-looking. They triple checked the order before placing the order, the order came in very quickly and everything was exactly how we had planned"

Limo Company:

Exquisite Limousine

1017 Lunt Avenue
Schaumburg, IL, United States

"Exquisite Limo was great to work with. The owner was very personable, available, and professional. Their fleet is beautiful, well kept and exactly what we were looking for. The driver arrived early, knew where he was going, was very easygoing and accommodating to what we wanted to listen to on the bus."

Photo Booth Vendor:

Pizzazz Photo Booth - Photo Booth Vendor - Barrington, IL , 60010

Pizzazz Photo Booth

Barrington, IL 60010

"This company was great, they provided wonderful props, they email out the photo to the guests and create a great photo album for the bride and groom. They set up during dinner so that it did not interfere with the space for cocktail hour and people who did not want to dance had lots of fun taking pictures. Cannot recommend them more!"

Tuxedo Vendor:

Jos A Banks

Town Gardens Cir
Lansing, MI, United States

"The individuals at the Keystone Store in Indianapolis were not capable of handling a multiperson order. It took ~8 weeks to get all tuxedos in. The groom's tuxedo was not available until <4 weeks before the wedding and then had to undergo alterations. The individuals in this store are not self-motivated, self-directed, and WILL NOT follow through on an order without constant supervision and follow-up by you the customer. DO NOT SHOP AT THIS STORE"

Wedding Fashion Vendor:

Bridal Superstore, Posie Patch

5447 82nd Street
Indianapolis, IN, United States

"This was one of the worst experiences of the entire planning process. The people at this store offer absolutely NO customer service. They are only about MONEY and once they have yours they could care less about you or your dress. After spending >$1000 on a dress there I wasn't allowed to try on veils in my dress without a consultant and an appointment, even though I had been expressly told that trying on veils would be no problem when I came for an alteration appointment at their store when I purchased the dress. The store front appearance does not match the attitude of the people who work at the store. You would think they were working at a Vera Wang exclusive salon. The behavior witnessed to many other young women, friends and mothers of the bride when they entered the store was astounding. This place is a super store, there is no focus on customer service. DO NOT GO TO THIS STORE"
