Our Wedding day could not have been more perfect. It was a little on the warm side but it didn't seem to matter. The Venue, Caterer all of our vendors, family and friends made it the best day we ever hoped for. Our guests complimented everything from the smallest details and personal touches to the great music played all night long. It was definitely a day we will never forget!
Mark (the owner) was great to work with. Very professional and organized which put my mind at ease. I saw him DJ my friend's wedding and loved his song selections and ability to read the crowd. Unfortunately he was not available for my wedding but it didn't matter. Chad was just as good. He listened to what we wanted, played requests from the guests and improvised to keep everyone dancing. Our dance floor was packed all night long. I couldn't have asked for a better DJ company for my wedding.
From the start of our planning Angeli's was always very accommodating. They allowed us to taste test the food before committing and it was delicious. I didn't have to worry about any set-up, take-down. They took care of it all and then some. The servers were very polite and went above and beyond for my guests. I would recommend them for dinner or any occasion you are having.
I LOVED the flowers from my wedding and we received so many compliments on them. I didn't give too much direction just the colors picked out a few colors and left the rest up to the owner Kim. They turned out great!
I had the priveledge of working with Agnes during my friends wedding a few years prior to mine. She was great and the pictures of my friends wedding were amazing. When I got engaged I decided to contact her. The pricing worked for my budget and I love the artistic style she portrays for the day. Agnes was on top of everything from replying to emails promptly during the planning process and following up as the wedding got closer to make sure all the bases were covered. She and her assistant Margaret were on time and went to work. We were very happy with the outcome. It was hard to choose which photos we loved the best. I have recommended her to all of my friends/family that are currently engaged. Definitely check her out if you are looking for a photographer to capture the emotion of your day.
Trying on wedding dresses was definitely in the top 3 things I loved the most about wedding planning and going to The Crystal Bride had a lot to do with it. Heater was my bridal consultant and she was very accommodating to what I wanted and made me feel special. They allowed me to go through the dresses first and pull any that I liked. They looked for ones that I brought style numbers for and pulled those. She helped me get into every dress brought out accessories to make the decision a little easier. I loved my experience at The Crystal Bride and didn't want it to end. I had my necklace custom made by the owner and it turned out beautiful. I had my alterations done through them as well and felt comfortable that by the last appointment my dress would be perfect. If you are looking for a bargain dress under $500 it may not be for you but if you are looking for a one-of-a-kind experience go here. Make a day of it and check out the shops and restaurants downtown Geneva has to offer.
I grew up in the Mokena area attending St. Mary's mass on Sunday's. Since my mom is a parishoner it was a no-brainer that is where my wedding would be held. If you are looking for a modern church then this is a great place. The things that kinda put us off was that they frowned upon doing the unity candle, Bouquet to Mary and only the Bride/Groom were allowed to take pictures in front of the altar. Our ceremony was still beautiful and probably the shortest Catholic Marriage ceremony I've ever been to.
The Danada House is beautiful and I fell in love as soon as I went for my walk through. Jill was very accommodating in answering all of my questions throughout my planning process. I did need friends/family to help set things up at the hall but I didn't think that was a big deal. My guests afterward raved about how lovely the place was and I have had a couple friends/family inquire about having their wedding there too. Other nice things about Danada that you may not get at other Venues where rental fees apply are that they had enough tables and chairs so we didn't have to rent any from an outside vendor. The rental fee was less expensive than most in the Chicagoland area and they were open to my decorating ideas.
