Paula and Matthew's Wedding

343343

Our wedding was perfect! It was better than anything I could have ever imagined. Getting married in St. Charles was really fun, since its where I grew up and where my family still resides. Prices were reasonable and there were many options for vendors and venues. Our DJ and Photographers were amazing (I would give them 10 stars if possible)! I loved working with both and each helped make our day truely memorable. Stonebridge was wonderful and the trees and leaves in October made for a beautiful setting and great pictures. Overall we wanted our wedding to be a fun party to celebrate with family, and friends and thats exactly what it was. I stumbled accross wedding mapper halfway through the planning process and ultimately used it to track guests and to create our seating charts. It was very easy and user friendly! We'd highly recommend using it!

DJs

Spencer and Style Matters are amazing! Our dance floor was packed the entire evening and he received rave reviews from everyone! If you are looking for a non-cheesy dj, without all the lights & special effects, that just plays great music, than style matters is for you!

Limos/Shuttles

We rented a limo bus for our large wedding party (19 people including us!) and it was extremely comfortable and classy! The seating was around the outside so everyone faced each other and you could stand up if needed! much better and brighter than a regular limo. Prices are very reasonable and the staff/drivers are great! We also used them for shuttles from the hotel to the reception for our guests.

Reception Sites

Beautiful place to host a reception! Everything was wonderful and we couldn't have asked for a better event manager than Joley to work with! She is flexible and willing to work with you to help make your day the best! They also provided a personal server (Gordon!) who made sure that we were taken care of and even brought us drinks while we were taking pictures outside!!!
