Becky and Jason's Wedding Celebration

We had a destination wedding in Aruba and then celebrated in Chicago with a casual "reception." It definitely takes a lot of research and planning to hold an event in Chicago. We settled on the West Loop area because it is familiar to us, easy to access, and close to everything.

Carmichaels was a great place to have an outdoor reception. The food was awesome, the location great, and there was a wonderful atmosphere. We had a very casual reception/celebration, so it worked out wonderfully...even in the pouring rain! They also provided complimentary shuttle service and valet service to our guests. Definitely a perk when in Chicago!

Our guests all had good experiences at Crowne Plaza. It was close to the city, yet only blocks away from our reception in the West Loop.
