Our wedding was absolutely beautiful. Everything worked out so perfect. All of our vendors were on time and in a great location so that I didn't have to drive far. All my vendors treated me like a queen and I loved being spoiled!!! Wish I could relive that whole weekend over and over!! Oh, and Wedding Mapper was a great resource to share with our guests. We'd highly recommend using it!
Great price. Beautiful photos. Loved our photographer Dennis. My complaint is that I allowed him to set up a back drop to take portraits of guests during our reception. Our guests loved it but I didn't like the time he spent away from taking pictures of the PARTY!!!
GREAT SERVICE. Really affordable. I had my bridesmaids and mom come for manicures and pedicures. They allowed me to bring a table and set up wine and desserts. They made my nails look great and took very good care of us. If you are looking for a very afforable girls day this is a great place!
ABSOLUTLEY LOVE LATI!!!! SHE IS SO GREAT. She can create anything. Great price and service. Kerre made my face look flawless with the airbrush foundation. Loved them both. They traveled to my hotel to help me get ready. I know they both specialize in hair and makeup for Brides which you will not find at a regular salon. Lati travels to France to get ideas and both of them do hair and makeup for Photographers model shoots in Chicago.
Very close by to the Byron Colby Barn in Grayslake. Horse was Beautiful. All Black. They have a white one as well. Great price... well worth it. They also were very accomodating. I asked if they would be willingly to give the kids at the wedding a ride around the neighborhood and they said OF COURSE!
Food was GREAT. We had some much food for such a great price. Wonderful service and very helpful with wedding coordination and working out the details. Worked with other vendors to get linens and chair rentals for me.
DJ was very personable and professional. I used him to do the sound for our ceremony as well. Only thing is that he missed a few of my favorite songs on the list because they were new songs.
LOVED HIM. EXTREMELY GREAT PRICE. We had open bar from 5:30-11:30. He helped come up with signature drinks and a drink menu to put on the bar. Added a nice touch! Best part... he doesn't charge you for the un-opened bottles. We also got to take home the open bottles that were not empty. Made for a great after party!!!
Price was okay. Flowers were nothing special. They forgot to spray paint my roses. Wasn't a huge problem but wasn't impressed. Only thing I liked is that they were close to my wedding reception at the Byron Colby Barn.
Cake was okay. Not too expensive but not cheap. I have seen her work. She is VERY artistic. Does great with fondant cakes. She gave us a pretty nice size samples to take home to try and when we said it was too sweet she baked another cake less sweet and brought it to our house on Christmas Eve!!!! We chose her since she was so willing to customize our tastes and go out of her way!
We got the Stretch SUV. It was very clean and very affordable. He was there ontime to pick us up and to take us back to the hotel.
This is a friend of mine. She was excellent. I needed a wedding coordinator for the day of and she set up the whole ceremony and reception and really helped make sure everything ran smoothly. She made sure vendors were there on time and helped clean up afterwards. She also did my wedding rehearsal and was very good about organizing and giving good pointers!!!
Byron Colby Barn. Very affordable and in a very nice neighborhood. Very willing to accomodate. I'm into horses and this was a beautiful location. Upscale Barn atmosphere. Beautiful Gazebo for Ceremony and you can have a Horse and Carriage! I did not prefer to use the chairs provide at this location. They only have 40 wooden chairs and the rest are black platic folding chairs. I chose to rent all new ballroom wooden chairs. My catering company helped organize the delivery and setup of the chairs.
GREAT SERVICE! Newly remodeled with a very contemporary deign. NOW CALLED HOTEL INDIGO. I think it is absoutely gorgeous. They catered to my every need. Was able to use their meeting room for my rehearsal. I also was able to give them my guest gift bags at the front desk and they distributed to my guests as the arrived. This hotel was a perfect location too. Right near the Westfield Shopping center and many restaurants. Our Tuxedo rental place was within walking distance too! We were able to go right across the street to Portifino's Italian Restaurnt for our rehearsal dinner. They have Starbucks in their lobby too!
