Katie and Brian's Wedding

278207

Our wedding was perfect! Getting married in Chicago in September was ideal, but a little pricey. September is a great time of the year as the weather held off and it wasn't too hot or cold. We had a great day and perfect for the out-of-towners to enjoy the city. Everyone loved our link to Weddingmapper on our save-the-date and invitation! We had a lot of out-of-town guests, so they raved about having so much information on personally recommended places to go and see before they came to visit. As an added bonus, it had all the wedding info as well, so they had all they needed in one place straight from those who live here.

Really easy to work with and truly cared about making sure we had a great time. They stuck to their guns about our "do-not-play" list and overall, they did a great job! The night was perfect!

We used a cooridnator for day-of only, and she went above and beyond. It really made the day so much easier to enjoy when I knew she had a handle on everything going on behind the scenes.

Ceremony Sites

The church was wonderful about planning and allowed for parking. The only thing that could have been better was the (2) chairs we used to sit in for the ceremony at the altar were plastic folding chairs. Looking at photos, they really hinder the beautiful space inside and take away from the image.

Nice space and great location to have fellow attendants go to after the reception. However, EVERYONE had the same idea...including other weddings. Too many people were in the bar and you had to pay $$ to reserve anything...
