June, 2010 in Chicago

Ceremony: Notre Dame De Chicago Church
Reception: Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum


J&L Catering

1229 N North Branch St
Chicago, IL, United States

"I would take pictures of the meals you are provided at the tasting, and take copious notes. Present those notes to your catering consultant so they know what you're thinking, and what you believe will happen on the wedding day, or believe me - you'll be on a different page than the caterer. Also beware of "employee switch", which is when they tell you top-notch people will host your event, and then on the day of the wedding they're suddenly sick or otherwise busy and you get replacements who may not know anything about your wedding, or it might be their first day at work, as it seemed to be with our wedding."

"Kehoe was easy to work with until a month before the wedding. They literally forgot to add the HEAD TABLE into our quote. The main table! I had to urge them to pick up the phone after emailing us constantly. One of the lights we asked them to shine on the wall, they shined on the FLOOR. We couldn't move it ourselves so it was a wasted effort."
