February - in Chicago - the first thing you think is Cold! And it was! But the overcast skys made for great outdoor pictures! Traveling around the city wasn't awful because it was too cold for tourists :) And almost every guest we invited made it to the wedding, because what else do you have to do in the middle of February! We had a great wedding - very romantic with a modern city feel. It was a perfect day, but I never want to do it again! :)
Hello Darling is amazing! I went into my appointment having no idea how to explain the way I wanted everything to look - she somehow translated my totally off description into EXACTLY what I wanted! Flower's were gorgeous!!!
Misty is the reason I survived my wedding day! She kept me sane and stayed by my side coaching me and keeping me calm through all the craziness....and she takes great pictures!!! We couldn't have asked for a better photographer - she gave us exactly what we wanted - pictures with a modern city feel that Grandma would still like :)
Debra is awesome! She was so helpful in putting together the wedding of our dreams! Debra serves as the caterer and the night of the wedding she is the coordinator. She worked with every vendor to make sure they arrived on time and kept us on schedule the night of the wedding. As a caterer she dealt with a few food allergies (no issues the night of!) and she is all inclusive, linnens, dishes, silverware, votives, food, apps, bar....no monetary surprises! So nice! :)
AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING!!!! We got exactly what we wanted and more. Ashley and Kyle run an excellent business, and they are awesome to work with! Our cake was beautiful - and tasted great too! They also do gluten free and vegan cakes!
Best idea ever! This pictures we have from the booth were totally worth the cost of the booth - so much better than doing standard portraits because people are themselves once they shut the curtain. We've had more people ask to see these pictures than our regluar photographers shots. Shutterbox was great to work with too!
BEAUTIFUL!!!!! I walked into Preston Bradley Hall and knew I wanted my first dance under the Tiffany dome. We recieved a lot of compliments on our choice in venue - I felt like Cinderella!!! The venue is bring your own caterer - which also means BYOB if you decide to.
This church is AMAZING! The second oldest chirch in Chicago and one of only a few buildings to survive the Chicago fire - it has a great story! It's dark, but warm...we didn't bring in any decorations - the church speaks for itself. Father Boland was great to work with also. We did not need to be members of the church to be married here.
Coordinators were great to work with - the contract we signed in the beginning was very reasonable and we more than doubled our obligation. They delivered all of our guest gifts to the rooms before they arrived - which the guests loved. Only drawback - parking is expensive.
