We had a beautiful wedding! What a gorgeous ceremony site & ceremony! Dinner was delicious, and we had a great bartender. My flowers were vibrant & arranged so beautifully. Our photographer, DJ, and videographer were worth what we paid & more. Our cake was beatifully decorated. Would love to have that day all over again!
When we first found the website, Ken, was our first contact. He was very informative & got back to us quickly when answering any quesions we had. The secretary, LuAnn,is also very helpful. Our DJ, Mark, did a great job even with my last minute requests. We also used their video services. Jason, our videographer, seemed to have captured all the special moments. (We have yet to see the finished product.) Their prices are reasonable, especially if you use both services. They were all very professional, and we would highly recommend them.
David,owner,is extremely friendly and easy to talk to.
I described what I wanted, simple-low cost- seasonal flowers & what I got were the most vibrant, gorgeous flowers you have ever seen. I wish I could have kept those flowers fresh forever! I would highly recommend him!!
Scott, owner, was very friendly & informative. Business was out of his house in basement(he is a licensed baker),kind of strange... But we went with him because of great reviews & tastings at bridal expos. Sample cake tasting was delicious, but our wedding cake turned out alittle dry with not enough filling between the layers of cake. Showed him pictures of design & he decorated our cake perfectly!! What beautiful detail!! Leftover cake tasted better...was moist & delicious!
Rev Marian was a pleasure to work with throughout the whole process. Only through emails have we communicated, but she was always on top of things and answered all my questions. FInally meeting her on our wedding day (you can meet her before the wedding also),she was so friendly like we had known each other before. Alittle pricey, but we highly recommend her!!
They choose a photographer for you based on how you rate various pictures. From there they see what style you like & pair you up with a phtographer. We highly recommend our wedding photographer, Irene, who did an excellent job!! On the other hand, our engagement photographer, Andrew, didn't take very good pictures(my clothing strap was showing in most pics). Our engagment pics were complimentary. He seemed like he was rushing, not very friendly. They are pricey, but in seeing the finished product(wedding pics)...it was worth it. We also got all rights & a DVD to print our own photos. They also have video services, but pricey also. They do keep you informed during the whole process.
The ceremony site we used was the lakeside.(They have 2 ceremony sites) Such a beautiful setting for a memorable evening. We also used the club room(smaller party) for our reception.(They do have bigger rooms) They kept us on schedule from the time before ceremony start to the start of reception. The food was delicious!! Only downside was the day of wedding, we had to look for the event coordinator, who was of no assistance in making sure the reception room was set up properly(alittle seating mix up, but easy to fix- we fixed it ourselves). Alittle pricey for ceremony, but good price for the reception.
I don't believe our guests used this hotel, but I did list it as one of the hotels in the area because of its location. It is right off of tollway 294. I have not personally visited this hotel, though. The hotel staff I spoke with to hold rooms was very personable & informative.
When I first spoke with hotel to hold rooms, they were very personable. But from what I had heard from guests was that they were not happy with their rooms. People noticed mold on walls. They reserved rooms months in advance(reserved suites next to each other & were assured they would get them), but families were separated on different floors or down the hall from each other. Also the breakfast was not deluxe; no eggs/sausage.
I have not personally visited this hotel, but the opinions above are reliable.
