Leslie from Toast & Jam was the absolute best. During our meetings before the wedding, she asked all the right questions and really figured otu what type of music we liked. I loved every song she played, and EVERYONE danced the WHOLE night, including us!
Lori from LOLA really helped us create our dream wedding. We had the "Little Bit of Lola" service, where I was able to email Lori directly whenever I needed her, and meet with her a few times in the year before the wedding. Then, the week of the wedding, she was available to me at all times. This was a great option for me, since I'm pretty organized, just also very busy! She really ran with the decor and flowers, and everything was beautiful.
Tasha, a stay-at-home mom in Colorado, was GREAT to work with. Although we did everything over email, I feel as though she really understood the look and feel we were going for. Her prices are reasonable and her invitations are beautiful and eco-friendly!
There are not words to describe how wonderful the Hotel Allegro was for our wedding reception. The hotel is beautiful, glamorous and intimiate all at the same time. We got a million compliments on the ornate ballroom and the beautiful silver plated chandeliers. After dinner, they pulled the shades back to reveal the cityscape and the el...it was very Chicago and felt like the quintessential city wedding. The food was absolutely amazing. The steak was delicious, and we've had many people ask us about the number of appetizers per person since there was plenty to go around! Kerry, the wedding coordinator, was a pleasure to work with and came to my rescue a few times when I almost got too stressed on the wedding day! The catering manager made me feel like a princess. Overall, this was the best decision we made for our wedding.
This was a really fun place to have a rehearsal! It was casual, the food was delicious (we edited their normal event menu to be only heavy appetizers), and it was a fun touristy event for people who were out of town since it's right next to Wrigley Field! Also, lots of people were excited to try Goose Island Beer!
