Lindsay and Adam's Wedding

Chicago is a great location for a fall wedding - the weather is much nicer than in the mid-summer, and usually there is not as much rain. Our wedding date (10/16) was 70 and runny with out a cloud in the sky. Couldn't have asked for better weather! The city itself is gorgeous, but of course, pricey.

Great band that kept the dancefloor packed all night. Expensive, but worth the splurge. The music was great and everyone was moving!

Maria did an amazing job on flowers - people are still raving about it. I made a mistake and originally told her I had 5 bridesmaids, and on the day of the wedding realized we needed 2 more bridesmaid bouquets. She was able to put 2 more together on the spot and get them to us before the ceremony started. Great quality and creativity for a decent price.

Photographers

Probably the best vendor choice we made for our wedding. Chad and his other photographer Michelle were absolute professionals and able to deal with the insanity of the wedding smoothly. The engagement pictures were amazing and the wedding pics are sure to be fantastic. He could not have been nicer or more accomodating.

Invitations

First and foremost, our invitations were gorgeous and like nothing I had ever seen. But they were extremely $$$ and the store we got them from was a little fussy to work with. Any changes we needed made seemed to be a huge hassle for them, and at least 5 (out of 150) of the invites were sent out incorrectly - with the wrong address, or no postage, etc. With the kind of price we paid, this should not have happened.

The venue itself is gorgeous and the food was great. The staff seemed semi disorganized and the wedding coordinator was sometimes hard/impossible to reach. Still a great place for a wedding but be prepared for some headache.
