Kehoe Designs

Florists

Kehoe was easy to work with until a month before the wedding. They literally forgot to add the HEAD TABLE into our quote. The main table! I had to urge them to pick up the phone after emailing us constantly. One of the lights we asked them to shine on the wall, they shined on the FLOOR. We couldn't move it ourselves so it was a wasted effort.

Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum
Chicago, IL
Reception Sites

Great place to have a wedding. Guests can tour the exhibits for the first hour of the reception. Be sure you ask them what the temperature of the museum will be. It was a little warm for our wedding.

Tuxedos

Affordable, and they get you out the door as quickly as possible. They understand that you don't have time to be standing around waiting. They have everything down to a science while still treating you like a king.

Notre Dame de Chicago Parish
Chicago, IL
Ceremony Sites

GREAT place to have your ceremony. It's an older church without any air conditioning, but they have giant fans so that shouldn't matter since you're only there an hour. Great parking attached to the church.

J&L Catering
Chicago, IL
Caterers

I would take pictures of the meals you are provided at the tasting, and take copious notes. Present those notes to your catering consultant so they know what you're thinking, and what you believe will happen on the wedding day, or believe me - you'll be on a different page than the caterer. Also beware of "employee switch", which is when they tell you top-notch people will host your event, and then on the day of the wedding they're suddenly sick or otherwise busy and you get replacements who may not know anything about your wedding, or it might be their first day at work, as it seemed to be with our wedding.
