Our wedding was perfect! It was better than anything I could have ever imagined. Getting married in St. Charles was really fun, since its where I grew up and where my family still resides. Prices were reasonable and there were many options for vendors and venues. Our DJ and Photographers were amazing (I would give them 10 stars if possible)! I loved working with both and each helped make our day truely memorable. Stonebridge was wonderful and the trees and leaves in October made for a beautiful setting and great pictures. Overall we wanted our wedding to be a fun party to celebrate with family, and friends and thats exactly what it was. I stumbled accross wedding mapper halfway through the planning process and ultimately used it to track guests and to create our seating charts. It was very easy and user friendly! We'd highly recommend using it!
Spencer and Style Matters are amazing! Our dance floor was packed the entire evening and he received rave reviews from everyone! If you are looking for a non-cheesy dj, without all the lights & special effects, that just plays great music, than style matters is for you!
The BEST! Husband and wife couple who capture the truely special moments of your day! More photojournalistic approach than traditional. Very accomodating and fun to work with.
Heather is my hair stylist in Chicago but also does freelance makeup work! She traveled out to the suburbs the day of the wedding and did the makeup for myself, bridesmaids,and mother and we all looked stunning!
Overall I was very happy with them! Some of the girl's hair started to fall out of their up dos by the end of the night but I think thats normal!
Yum!!! Last minute we decided to get a cake. Il Giardino was great to work with at the last minute and fit us into their schedule!
I absolutely loved my dress and the entire experience of the dress shopping / fitting. It was one of a kind and beautiful! I would wear it every day if I could :-) Kate and Sandy took great care of me and all my needs/questions and Lety is a one of a kind seamstress!
We rented a limo bus for our large wedding party (19 people including us!) and it was extremely comfortable and classy! The seating was around the outside so everyone faced each other and you could stand up if needed! much better and brighter than a regular limo. Prices are very reasonable and the staff/drivers are great! We also used them for shuttles from the hotel to the reception for our guests.
Beautiful place to host a reception! Everything was wonderful and we couldn't have asked for a better event manager than Joley to work with! She is flexible and willing to work with you to help make your day the best! They also provided a personal server (Gordon!) who made sure that we were taken care of and even brought us drinks while we were taking pictures outside!!!
