Ceremony:

St. Francis of Assisi

813 W Roosevelt Rd
Chicago, IL 60608, US

"I hate to rate a holy place low but our treatment by the fathers leading up to the wedding was atrocious. Chastising us every chance they got that we lived together before marrying. Granted we understood this violated the rules of the church but we were trying to make it right, for goodness sake. Also, our wedding was on the hottest day of the year and they have no AC so they had large industrial fans blowing which lead to industrial sized noise inside the church. We, including my husband and myself, could not hear what the priest was saying! We had to guess at what we were being asked to do by the priest. My husband had to ask if he could kiss me since we weren't sure that the ceremony was over."

Reception:

Catalyst Ranch

656 W Randolph St
Chicago, IL 60661, US

"Catalyst is the best place to have your wedding if you want something different and cozy. So NOT the traditional place to have a wedding ceremony. It's almost like you are someone's home having a big ol' party. Paulette Eastman is the sweetest and will ensure that everything goes off without a hitch! Give that woman a raise!"
