Jessica and Kacey's Wedding


Wonderful wedding venue and reception venue.


Vendors & Venues Reviews


We had many compliments on the food served at the reception.
Since booking with them through our wedding venue, Ravina on the Lakes, they provided a Group Taste Test in the fall for all weddings to be held the following spring/summer. We were able to sample everything at this tasting which made it a lot easier to plan our menu for the wedding.

I Do Events
Washington, IL

I Do Events did a spectacular job with the wedding and reception. They provided the flowers for the arbor at the wedding venue, the flowers for aisle, the petals for the flower girl as well as the Bridal Bouquet. (The groom’s mother made the bridesmaids bouquets as well as boutonnieres and flowers for the families) They also delivered the bridal bouquet to the hotel where the girls were getting ready. They did such a beautiful job decorating the reception venue; it took your breath away when you walked into the hall. We highly recommend their services. They come in and decorate, then are there as soon as the reception is over to tear down and clean up. You don’t have to worry about having your family and friends decorate all day and stay late to clean up! We met with them a couple times. They were good about helping set up different samples of decorations for your tables and they would price everything out and if it was too much for your budget they would gladly suggest something else or take items off to make it more affordable. They were so worth the money we paid for their services.

Janice made us feel special the moment we stepped into the shop in Morton. As we entered the special bridal suite she had the brides name and wedding date written on the wall to welcome us! She had the bride in and out of dresses quickly and helped us in every way... wonderful experience!!! If you want to feel special and pampered you MUST check out Adore!

Melissa was good to work with through the year long planning process. She was always easy to get in touch with and replied to our emails promptly.
We were a bit disappointed that she (or any other member of the facility) stayed the entire evening of our reception. We had an issue with the bar closing early and we had paid for beer and wine to be served the entire evening.
