Cara and Daniel's Wedding

Big

Overall the wedding went perfectly! While it rained on our big day, we still managed to have successful pictures outdoors in downtown Peoria by old abandoned buildings (which I loved) and the venues worked out perfectly! The Par-a-Dice was MORE than accommodating and everything was organized and planned exactly as I had pictured it the day of the wedding!

Barb did a fantastic job on our cake. We had a lot of compliments on how wonderful it looked AND tasted! It was exactly what I had pictured and she did an amazing job. She was also a pleasure to work with and was so helpful during the entire process. I highly recommend using Wedding Cake Connection!!

DJs

I met with Dan prior to the wedding and he helped us setup everything necessary. Jason was our actual DJ and he did an amazing job keeping everyone on the dance floor all night. In fact, the lights turned on at 1AM and there was still a ton of people out dancing! He kept the crowd entertained, had our slideshow ready to go with no problems and was very enjoyable! I highly recommend Diamond Dan and his team of excellent DJ's!

Wedding Day Beauty

Kailee did an amazing job with my hair style for the wedding day! Joanna did an excellent job on my makeup as well! Everyone was a pleasure to work with and they were over-accommodating for my entire bridal party! We had so much fun spending the morning there and everyone looked beautiful on our wedding day!

Honeymoon

Becky Rogy helped us plan the most luxurious honeymoon! We stayed in Playa Del Carmen at The Royal. Becky was so helpful and gave us great suggestions to narrow down our choice. She set up everything for us and made the process so easy and affordable. We will definitely be using her for our future vacations and I highly recommend her for your honeymoon planning!

The church staff was very helpful, specifically Claire with whom I worked with on a regular basis. Obviously, this is a beautiful church and is in a perfect location right in downtown Peoria!

Hotels/Accommodations

Our Wedding Reception was at the Par-a-Dice Hotel. We worked closely with Debbie Douglass who did a fantastic job of organizing our event. The staff at the Par-a-Dice were so helpful and professional. We could not have been more happy with our choice to have our reception at the Par-a-Dice. It was the perfect reception!

Hampton Inn-East Peoria
East Peoria, IL
Hotels/Accommodations

We offered rooms at the Hampton in addition to the Par-a-Dice for our wedding reception. Everyone who stayed at the Hampton said the rooms were wonderful and they were very pleased with their service. Since it shares the parking lot with the Par-a-Dice, it was conveniently located for our guests and was a little less expensive than the Par-a-Dice.
