It was great working with Joe. He was always available by phone and email. He answered all the questions we had before booking him for our wedding. I was a little disappointed in the sound quality during our wedding ceremony. The microphone kept cutting in and out. We weren't video recording our ceremony, but if we were, I would've been very disappointed with the sound afterwards. He tried to fix the microphone during our ceremony, but the quality remained the same. Joe played some songs while our pianist and violinist were setting up inside to play during the cocktail hour. He played great music all night and even accommodated us for our last minute changes for the bridal party introductions for the reception. My fiance sent him the info the night before our wedding and he still made it happen. Overall we had a great experience with Joe and he really helped make our wedding day memorable. We also booked an open air photobooth with Joe and his helper, Alex(sp?) was a great help. He encouraged people to take pictures and went to ask Joe for help when there were any issues with the photo booth camera. Joe had sent examples for the photo booth strip designs and I wasn't a fan of the designs he sent. I looked up other ideas on the internet and sent him designs for what I liked. He was able to create something that looked great for the wedding. I didn't see the design before the wedding, I would've liked to, however my fiance and I waited until the last minute to take care of this because of other things we had deal with. Overall... A+!!! Thanks Joe!

C & C sent me 2 servers and 1 bartender for my September backyard wedding for 50 people. They all arrived 20 minutes early, setup promptly, professionally attended to guests of varying ages and ethnicities, and went above and beyond my intricate instructions. I had particular plates and drinkware associated with each food and drink item and the waitstaff matched them up as-asked without the slightest hint of hesitation or complaint. In fact, they all praised my creativity in coming up with such an arrangement. The servers helped carefully assemble hors d'oeuvres purchased from another vendor and plated them creatively for a beautiful presentation. The bartender whipped up two amazing custom his & hers cocktails for our reception based on our vague recipe/preference and liquor on-hand. Our guests raved about the food setup and my uber-observant mother pointed out that she never noticed any slacking-off or inappropriate speech/conduct. Whenever I was doing something in a nearby room, but perhaps undetected, all I heard was work-oriented chatter. When a guest or two needed to be cut-off, the bartender (Cindy, I think) discreetly confirmed with the groom or a wedding party member before professionally executing the decision. She multi-tasked like a champ, simultaneously serving over 50 guests and answering old-people questions without holding up the line. As an added bonus, one of the servers, Angelica, I think, has beautiful penmanship, so when we couldn't print the food labels, she volunteered to write them out. After we saw her work, we commissioned her to write out the details on our commemorative wedding certificate and she happily complied. The lead for the day privately informed us when they had reached the agreed-upon departure time along with what cleanup had already been accomplished and asked us if we'd like them to do anything else. At that time, we decided that we could use their help for an additional hour (past the 5 they were originally hired for) and they enthusiastically agreed. When the bartender did a last-call and heard that I had only had time to consume one drink during the 4-hour reception, she took it upon herself to mix up a batch of my signature cocktail and leave it in a pitcher for me to use during the casual, on-site after-party. I can't think of any other way to describe just how helpful, positive, fast, and professional these three ladies were for the entire duration of the event. I tried to give them a generous tip, but upon reflection, wish I had given them more. I actually live in the city (Chicago) and will most certainly be giving C&C a call for casual and business events in the future. My mother was impressed as well and plans to give you a call for her annual 4th of July barbecue. I can't wait.

Traci was absolutely amazing. I am so grateful she was able to assist and very last minute. I loved makeup, it did not feel caked on and lasted all day for an outdoor and hot day. Thank you Traci for all that you did for my wedding day and I look forward to using you again!

Lili Marie Parties was hired for my daughters 1st birthday party! I couldn't of been more please with the entire experience, from the first initial contact and through the entire party. All the parents raved about how excited their kids were with the design painted on their face. There was everything from Batman, super Mario, butterflies, flowers and cupcakes. She was patient and friendly and was able to paint way more kids in one hour than I thought would be possible. She truly was excellent! Thank you for making our birthday party even more memorable!

Julie arrived on time and was great. She had notes from our makeup trial so everything went very smooth. The makeup looked beautiful, it looked very natural and lasted all day long. I feel the price was very reasonable and I would definitely recommend her services to another bride/ bridal party.

Knena did my hair and makeup on my wedding day, and I couldn't be more pleased. Leading up to the day, Knena asked me some key questions to figure out what I wanted and even though I was pretty vague, she made me look beautiful! She created an elegant half up/half down hairstyle with curls and a loose braid, and incorporated a hairpiece that she didn't see until that day. Plus, Knena was willing to come to me so I could hang out with my wedding party all morning - we had a great time with Knena and her assistant/husband for a couple hours, they were fun and friendly. My makeup was natural and beautiful, and the entire look lasted all day and all night (for like 16 hours!), so I highly recommend Knena for any special event.

Patricia was really great to work with for my wedding makeup and hair! She does a beautiful job and worked with me to get me the results that I wanted for my big day. She was super easy to talk to and felt like a friend even though we had just met. My timeline was really short and she delivered with zero hiccups. Very responsive and talented! Highly recommend!

Jessica did a great job with our day of wedding preparation. She was able to take what we envisioned for our center pieces, sweet table and guest book table; and bring them to life. She was a huge help because it took a lot of stress off our families since we didn't have to worry about getting our hall set up the day of the wedding.

Janice & Jennifer were perfect. These ladies are a must book! They went above and beyond to make my wedding dreams come true! Their props were great with a lot of variety and they made all of my guests feel welcomed. The bubble booth looked so cool inside the venue! The dance on a cloud effect made our entrance perfectly dramatic. Thank you both so much!

I recently was in a wedding and Anjali was doing make-up. I am not a big make-up person and find myself wiping off a lot whenever I get it done, so I initially passed. However, after seeing how amazing the other girls looked I had to! Anjali was super nice about the last minute change of heart and was professional the whole time! I loved my make-up and even my mom really liked it (she's usually helping me wipe it off)! I felt beautiful all night. She really understands working with all skin shades which is the main reason I've run into issues in the past. Loved her!!!

A company that does everything! :) Sometimes it's hard when you are working with multiple vendors and meeting timelines, that's why when I found out that this company offers a lot of services I didn't even think twice and call right away! Izza has been helpful, attention to details, very organize and will make you stick to your timeline. I love her being perfectionist! :) I actually hired them again for my 50th wedding anniversary.

Had 3-4 consultations. Contact person for all vendors. At the wedding rehearsal, they provided great suggestions as to how the bridal party should enter. I didn't have my slideshow presentation though. All centerpieces, gifts and cake were delivered to our onsite hotel room.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
