Jennifer and Erick's Wedding

Big

Our wedding was exactly as how I had planned it. I'm so glad that I decided to do the Trolley pictures around the city before the wedding ceremony. We had so much fun and the wedding pictures are priceless.

B Rose Salon
Chicago, IL
Wedding Day Beauty

I recently started going to this salon by suggestion of my matron of honor. I was very happy with my stylist so I looked into their wedding hair and make-up prices. They are way below the standard make-up artist that you would go to but the quality is just as good. I think I paid about $70 compared to $200 and my make-up lasted all day and I spent 5 hours outdoors before the ceremony taking pictures. The same goes for my hair, I paid around $70 compared to $100 + and they did a great job and my hair stayed all day. Making a trip to the salon the day of was well worth it as I saved a ton of money and they did an outstanding job.

DJs

This company was The Knot’s pick of 2007 and I now know why. They did a fantastic job with my wedding. The company is very responsive and helpful in any way. I choice a very interactive DJ and he did his part well. My wedding was filmed for a TV show called “I Do!” and requires you to still down for a 15-minute interview. My interview went a good 45 minutes and the wedding started to slow down. No problem, Bob the DJ got the party started again and everyone danced the night away. Everyone commented on how great the dinner music was and then the dance music got even better. I was told by all how much fun they had.

Windy City Trolley
Chicago, IL
Limos/Shuttles

Overall all I was pleased with the trolley, the driver did show up 10 minutes late but our wedding day was Cubs vs. Sox at Wrigley and pick-up was close to the stadium. The driver quickly made up by being very friendly and knew how to get around the city very well. I’m giving Windy City a B- because the main office can be very slow at responding to e-mails and phone calls. For someone that is type A this was very frustrating for me. The trolley was very clean and has some windows and some open seating (windows roll up to a completely open section.

Florists

Nadine is the owner of the company and she is very good at her job. She was always very responsive and did an outstanding job. My flower budget was small and she figured out a way to get me everything I wanted at a cost I could afford. My flowers were amazing; one look at my bouquet and her work says it all. If you wanted to do flowers at any level she is the person. I can’t imagine how awesome a large flower wedding would look by her. I highly recommend she will not disappoint!

Photographers

I was very impressed with the level of service this large photo and video company provided. They offer a nice package for very reasonable prices. I was very happy with my photographer Gary. He has a ton of experience and my wedding pictures turned out awesome. Gary recommended our 2nd trolley stop and it was so good I allowed him to pick the remaining destinations. He suggested places I would have never thought of and now I have amazing wedding pictures. I don’t have my wedding video back but I’m sure they will not disappoint.

Wedding Fashion

Mary is an amazing seamstress at amazing prices. She has been doing wedding alterations for many years and she really knows what she is doing. She spends a lot of time making sure the dress fits you perfectly on your wedding day. Mary is a perfectionist and does a really great job. I would highly suggest her; since she is so good she books up very quickly so I would suggest booking her as soon as you find a dress.

Reception Sites

I worked with Mike at Marcello’s and for the most part he was very on top of things. The prices and packages they offered were very reasonable. I really liked the fact of having 3 different rooms for the reception. We had a room for cocktails, dinner and dancing. The one thing I was disappointed about was the cake. I provided them with a picture of a cake and the final cake was similar but not exactly what I had in mind. A lot of people liked the cake, but I wish they had given me a heads up that it would not be exact, as I would have chosen something simpler. One nice thing about Marcello’s is they offer everything you need for a reception. The cake was provided and they work with 2 linen rental companies so you can do most of your reception planning right at the reception site.

Ceremony Sites

They did a really nice job with helping me with the ceremony planning. The church printed the ceremony bulletins and also has resources for various musicians. I had a trumpet player and an organist and the music sounded great. I was very pleased with the service.
