Alix and Alexandra's Wedding

Our wedding at Allerton Park was beautiful and perfect, even though it was a little beyond our budget. The weather was great in September, but I have heard that waiting a little longer for the leaves to change can make the scenery even more stunning. Wedding Mapper was a very useful tool; we found it especially helpful for guest RSVPs. Being able to have guests RSVP online made it simpler for them and also easier to send out reminder links to the website to get all our RSVPs in on time! We got many compliments on the wedding website and it was very easy to set up.

Ashley at the Cake Artist's Studio in Champaign did an amazing job with our cakes. She is very creative, listens to exactly what you want, seems to be able to make just about anything you want on your cake, and was flexible with scheduling. We had a great experience working with the Cake Artist's Studio!

Pam Glosser at Allerton was very experienced with all the details of wedding planning and provided a lot of needed advice. Allerton is a bit pricey, but the venue is beautiful, and it is convenient to have the venue, catering, and bar all in one package. The food was excellent. They have deals where if you book a certain number of rooms you can even stay in the mansion to extend your celebration throughout the weekend, which I highly recommend. The rooms are very elegant and it really added a special feeling of luxury to the whole thing.
