Erika and Matt's Wedding

358482

We had a fantastic wedding. It was worth all the hard work we put into it. I'm not sure how many guests actually used our Wedding Map, but that seems to be par for the course with accommodating your guests. It's a great service, though, and I would use it again.

Besides being a stunning venue, this is our church, so it had extra meaning for us. Not cheap but there was no other place we wanted to consider. Very glad we went with our gut on this one. Our guests were impressed and it suited our tastes.

Reception Sites

Although this place switched Event Coordinators on us mid-stream (and without announcing it), our reception was GREAT. We loved this place from the first time we saw it. It is elegant but relaxed. Our guests loved it. Food was terrific.

Hotels/Accommodations

Via the groom's affiliation with U of C we were able to offer our guests modestly priced rooms at this hotel, which is right downtown. A bargain in our book, though still too pricey for some of our guests (but what can you do). Though they were always willing to work with us, we did get the sense that weddings are not exactly their main focus. Still, worth it in my opinion for the price/location (and again they were always concerned, just not always quick or accurate). This hotel has a beautiful lobby and Club level with conference rooms.

Hotels/Accommodations

We received no feedback from guests about this hotel, and I'll assume no news is good news. The staff were pleasant to work with. They offered us great rates for the location, and this hotel is definitely geared towards leisure travelers, which made it more accommodating.

Rehearsal Lunch/Dinner

We invited our out-of-town family (which is all of them) to attend our rehearsal dinner as a thanks for making the trip. This place plays up the city, which is what we wanted. It was a casual dinner, so it didn't compete with the upcoming wedding dinner, and our guests loved it. Food and service were good, and the graffiti walls were a hit.
