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!

I hired C&C Party Services for bar tending services at my wedding, but Lynette was a real doll and helped me with so much more. I was able to get event insurance (which was more cost effective than my own insurance provider) and server assistance. She helped me figure out how much alcohol to purchase, and at the last minute Lynette was able to get me table clothes in a pinch. She even helped out by bringing some of her own supplies. Lynette is a jack of all trades and awesome! Doesn't hesitate to hire her for your next event!

Donna. Was. INCREDIBLE. I hired her for our wedding of over 120 people. She was not only a bartender, but literally a hostess. Many people (even my notoriously critical grandmother) commented on how she was everywhere doing everything - making a mean drink, clearing plates, making coffee, everything - and being so kind and pleasant and joyous in the process. Plus she came by to make me (the bride) a plate of food for dinner! She helped me make the list of what I would need, and worked with the drinks and mixers I provided to make even better drinks than I imagined. I requested an additional server to support her which she easily provided, and he was amazing as well. She was worth double the price and I can't recommend her enough.

Wedding Planner Full Service I couldn't have better things to say about working with Rick and Special Occasion Events . We booked a full wedding planning package and MC. And Throughout the planning process, Valerie and Rick were attentive, organized and resourceful. Valerie helped to alleviate any additional stress leading up to the wedding by providing helpful tips and resources that kept me and my husband on track for our big day. She made the wedding planning process so much better. She went out of her way to accommodate us in many occasion . She make sure we were happy with every decision we made about our vendors and work professionally with every vendor. And on our rehearsal day and made sure all of our attendants (and little ones!) knew exactly what they were doing, and made it fun and enjoyable throughout. On our wedding day, I knew I had absolutely nothing to stress about because Valeri and Rick were on it. Every little detail, every step of the way. I couldn't have asked for a better planner and MC and am so grateful that we picked Special Occasion Events to help us throughout our wedding planning. I would recommend Special Occasion Events to absolutely anyone!

Because my wedding was outside, in the rainy June season in good ol Chicago, I went back and forth with tent sizes, tent quantity, and side walls. As much of a pain as I was, Stacie made sure every request was fulfilled and every question I had was answered. She made me feel confident that my wedding would turn out perfect, rain or shine, and that she would do everything to make sure I had the proper tenting. It didn't rain, however, I am still so thankful for how easy and wonderful they were to work with! Thank you for being a part of making my wedding better than I dreamed;)

To any and all future WS Photography clients, I work as an event planner for an event company in NYC that does weddings, corporate, parties, etc. Since, my company has a preferred resident wedding officiant and at the time a preferred photographer that brides and grooms really like, I was going to use them for our wedding day. My wife after seeing their work did not like it. It was probably her best contribution that she made to our wedding, except for looking absolutely amazing, of course! We found WS Photography's website and fell in love with Milan's work, his creativity, and his passion. We meet a few times to go over the details and he was always polite and answered every question we had about his work and what he was planning to do. He did site checks to know exactly where he was going, what the scenery looked like, and where he will get the best shots so we can remember our big wedding day. He was there taking amazing pictures that even Michaelangelo or DaVinci would applaud. That's no joke. During your event, you're going to be focused on everything else and it's just going to fly by. Sometimes, we didn't see Milan but after seeing the pictures, we knew he was everywhere. He was everywhere taking all the pictures of us, our guests, our families, and letting us have fun without being in our way. He was climbing over rocks, laying in the snow, do everything he had to, to get that perfect shot. He's simply the best. He's part of our big day and we'll never forget that. Two of my guests do professional photography and they both complimented Milan with such high regards. I highly recommend WS Photography. There are no words that I can really say to you to express how awesome and amazing experience it was. I always thought photography was a button push, but Milan definitely proved me wrong, not that he knew he was proving me wrong.

We worked with Cindy on our wedding invitations and it was a fantastic experience! We gave her our "theme" and colors and she came up with three gorgeous choices. We really had a difficult time choosing which to use! After we hit a bump with the company that was going to do the printing, Cindy stepped up and came up with cost effective solution for us including doing some of the printing and assembly herself. We couldn't have been happier with how the invitations turned out and we received so many compliments. I would not hesitate to use Cindy again for any of my design needs.

Tiffany is very thorough. She pays attention to every detail and that is very important to planning. My birthday celebration was an absolute amazing event. Tiffany only had a short amount of time to pull off this event and she did it masterfully and flawlessly. What I love the most about the Captivating Allure experience is the fact that once you give her your vision, she runs with it all the way. There is no need to worry, question, or stress about anything. All you have to do is show up to your event and you will be well pleased at the Captivating Allure!

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 originally thought I was going to DIY my wedding but when Charlene answered my request I knew that was going to be the best decision I ever made to hire her. IT WAS! I am so glad I did not DIY my wedding. I would give Elegant Wedding Design 100 stars! She made my special wedding day more perfect than I could have ever imagined. People in my family were second guessing the event space I had chosen because it was small and they couldn't see the vision that I had. Charlene truly transformed the space into a beautiful, elegant and luxurious wedding venue. Every single one of my guests were blown away and in awe as soon as they stepped into the ceremony and saw Charlene's magical beauty she created. She was so engaging, kind and truly made sure every detail of my vision was accomplished. She gave great ideas and expertise. I trusted every decision she made. I love that she owned all of her own materials and had the perfect matching color for our wedding scheme. She did a site walk thru and planned everything with a layout. Her text and email correspondence was great! I could write two pages about how amazing she is and how you really need to make sure she is handling your wedding decor and design. As soon as my first phone call with her I could tell in my spirit she would make all of my dreams come true. and she did! I had the complete piece of mind from the moment I hired her. I was even worried because I WASNT worried about anything. She is like the fairy godmother that transformed Cinderella! I give her my highest review possible! Elegant Wedding Design is the best!

ASK Ware productions is more than a 5 star rate kind of company. It's where Dreams and Professionalism meet Bliss! Working with Amber whom is the CEO brought me so much hope for my event. At the time, I was an expecting mom and party planning/organization was never my strong point. Although I consider myself a creative person, I kind of needed someone else to make my vision come true. So, word of mouth lead me to ASK Ware and I've never planned a party without them since. My baby shower was phenomenal and everyone walked out telling me how much they enjoyed my event! When I went back to work, my boss even asked for her information so we can start planning corporate events. I say all this to say, ASK Ware is more than wedding planning, more than Party planning...it's a event planning HEAVEN! Many thanks to Amber and her entire staff for always bringing life to what started out as a simple dream.

When my husband and I were beginning the process of planning our wedding, we found ourselves overwhelmed. Originally I didn't think I needed a wedding planner, especially since we were trying to keep our budget as low as possible. GOOD GRAVY was I totally wrong. Laura from Fierce Productions worked with us over the course of nearly a year and made literally EVERY aspect of planning a wedding easier. She helped us find a venue, led fun productive meetings to brainstorm creative ideas, and helped us wade through endless options of caterers, decor, flowers, etc. Closer to the wedding she took care of so much of the nitty gritty logistics I didn't have time for (and honestly didn't even know I really needed to have done). I felt like she really made a successful effort to "get" us and our style and what we were going for, instead of suggesting boring generic stuff. And she was consistently full of awesomely creative ideas (my husband is a writer and she suggested putting borrowed working typewriters on each table for guests to write notes to us. How cool would that be??) She was smart, decisive, and fun to work with. She was so motivated that she was often the one getting things off the ground and lighting a very needed fire under our butts. And I honestly think we spent less money in the long run because of how many great ideas she had to keep costs down. In the end, my husband and I had several people tell us that our wedding was the most fun wedding they'd ever attended. I give so much of that credit to Laura and her fantastic planning. I'm not sure I could've found the kind of crowd planning and sound design that she and her team provided in another company. Planning a wedding was one of the most stressful and complicated things I've ever done, and Laura just made it SO much easier for me and my husband. So if you're on the fence about wedding planners, do yourself a favor and hire Laura at Fierce Productions!!

I highly recommend Tilly as a wedding day-of coordinator. I had a 220 person wedding reception in October 2017. I consider myself a fairly organized person, and when we first met she brought up a ton of questions I was surprised that I hadn't even thought about! Tilly continued to keep in regular touch before the wedding to ensure everything was on track. Thanks to Tilly's hard work before and during the reception, my significant other and our families were able to enjoy ourselves to the fullest, worry-free! Friends and family had pleasant things to say about Tilly as well. We had an excellent experience with Tilly and I certainly would recommend her to any of my friends planning to have a wedding.
